First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.

When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.

And then I met Nate Preeter.

An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.

My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.

And then he showed me how to fall.



Alexis says…

This is me falling…in love with Ginger Scott.

I’d seen this book on Goodreads for a while but hadn’t had the chance to pick it up right away. Well, I’m glad I moved it up on my TBR list because it was beyond fantastic. It is the type of New Adult books that I dream about. It has that multi-dimensional love story that doesn’t just have a great story, but fantastic characters to boot. Oh, and it is super funny at the same time-win win!!

Rowe with an E has been living the last two years completely isolated. She’s homeschooled and suffers from a mild case of agoraphobia after a tragedy strips her from feeling safe and leaves not only emotional but physical scars too. With the help of a therapist she decides to leave home, and go away to college. What if the biggest leap of her life helps her overcome her past and let her move forward?

“This…is love.”

Once she gets to college, she meets Nate almost immediately. Nate is also a freshman and on the baseball team. He agreed to attend McConnell University so that he can room with his older brother Ty. After a summer of nursing his wounds he is ready to move on from his ex.

“You are the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think about at night.   You are the face in all of my dreams and the smile I see when I close my eyes. Your voice is when you sing in the shower last at night, when you think you’re along, is like music to my ears-and I know, that’s totally weird that I listen to you, but don’t interrupt my flow, we can get back to that later.”

Within the first day, Rowe and Nate meet under a super-cute circumstance. The two end up bonding almost immediately. Nate is immediately taken by Rowe who is a bit nervous and standoffish. He knows that there is more to her than meets the eye and plans to take it slow. Rowe in turn is nursing her own issues and takes awhile to warm up to him and realize that he really does want to be with her. There are some additional bumps in the road but you know that Nate is the one person along with her super-awesome roommate, Cass, who can help Rowe move on from her former life.

“I love it when you call me Thirty-three. You pretty much had my heart the first time you called me that.”

 Like I said earlier, this is a fantastic book. Nate is an amazing hero…he is funny, swoony, and just a great guy. Rowe is also fantastic; she has gone through an awful ordeal and knows that she has to move on. There are so many parts to this book that I’d love to share with you but I would be doing you an injustice by spoiling it. If you are looking for a book that will have staying up late, crying in a Target parking lot, and laughing over your lunch hour than check it out.

Lastly, I cannot wait for the next book in this series (they are standalones). It is about Cass and Ty. Yay!
