In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.
But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her-even from her new and trusted friends-the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I was pretty dubious about this book at the start, because I have to admit that I didn’t really like the introduction. The main character started off too arrogant for my taste, but after each turn of the page (or rather the Kindle), I warmed up to her. Her arrogance became one of her many charming traits. There were certain parts of the introduction that I was confused about, like whether her name was Jane Doe or Janey Doerr? And to be honest, even after the whole book, I still have no idea what her name was. But I guess it doesn’t matter, because it wasn’t her real name either way.

There were also tons of hot guys in this book, but my favorite will definitely be Reyes (hush, he’s MINE). I think that he made the perfect, sexy brooding character that we have all come to love. It was difficult to know what he was thinking, especially since the whole book was written from Janey’s point of view.

I also love that the author makes readers suspicious of everyone. LITERALLY EVERYONE. I was jumping from one conclusion to another, thinking that this other character knows who Janey is and stuffs. In the end, I was wrong, but it’s okay HAHAHA. There were also hilarious scenes in this book that will make you wanna cover your face and giggle, which I definitely did.

Plus, did I mention hot guys? Hot guys = HOT HOT HOT STEAMY SCENES

Oh, and one more reason as to why you should read this book because it involves creepy as hell ghosts. I made the mistake of reading this book at 11 at night, with the lights out, and I freaked out. I swear the author could write a ghost story, and I would still love it.
