Inbetween (Kissed by Death, #1)

      Inbetween (Kissed by Death #1)

Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky — and unending — lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.

It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.

Paperback, 400 pages
Expected publication: August 28th 2012 by Entangled Teen

Inbetween is a fresh, beautiful romance story. Tara Fuller gave me a few eerie chills with this unique reaper romance. Fuller is a wonderful writer. Her writing is strong and clear, and she gives her characters a fantastic personality with a great sense of humor along with warm sensitivity that came through beautifully with Fuller's writing. I easily fell in love with Emma, Finn, Cash, Easton, Scout, and Anaya . I also enjoyed that Fuller wrote this story from both Emma and Finn’s point of view. Yes, I love when an author does this, it always pulls me in more quickly and makes it a deeper read. Emma and Finn captured my romantic heart, and I wanted them to have a chance for love. Thank you, Tara, for making my heart also come alive with Finn's heart with his love for Emma.

Emma is Allison’s second chance at having a life. This second chance for Allison came when Finn (who's a reaper) broke the number one reaper rule with Allison while she was waiting in the Inbetween: reapers do not fall in love with souls! Finn tries to right his wrong, but he's found out when you try to fix a wrong it only leads to a hell of a lot bigger problems. Finn pissed off Maeve with his pushing Allison through the porthole, and she’s out for evil, sweet revenge against Finn and Allison (Emma).

Finn is a true heartbreaker, and it was instant love for me with him. Finn's love for Emma is so beautiful for how deeply he cares and loves Emma. I was crying my eyes out over Finn, for him never to be with the girl he loves. I also fell in love with Cash, who is Emma's best guy friend, and totally he’s a fun, lovable guys who I wanted to fix his lost puppy syndrome. Okay, I fell in love with Easton and Scout, too! All the guy characters are swoon-worthy and beautiful in this story. And I do have my suspicion about Cash and heaven's reaper Anaya, Have to wait for sequel to see if I'm right, If I am, Cash is in for a heck of romance with Anaya.

Inbetween is an awesomely beautiful, heavenly romance between Emma and Finn with hell's chilling hand in the mix to stop it. I highly recommend Inbetween as a must read!

"You've done this before," Emma said, "I can tell."
"Danced with a girl." Without actually touching me, she went through the motion of running her palms over my chest. I ached for her to close that space, but she never did. I tried, unsuccessfully, to steady my voice. "Just once. School dance." Emma smiled and did a little twirl. "What was her name?" I couldn't think. Didn't really want to to think about anything that didn't begin and end with Emma, but a flash of a girl in pink satin swaying nervously in my arms shook me. I smiled.
"She wore a pink dress. I remember that. And I was so nervous I thought I might throw up."
Emma giggled. I didn't think I'd ever get tired of hearing her laugh.
"Did you love her?" she asked quietly. We stopped moving. Silence swallowed us. Then the crackling hiss of the record sounded and a new tune began.
"No, I said. "No, I didn't love her."
"Have you..." Emma took a step back and tucked her hair behind her ear. She wouldn't look at me. "Have you ever loved anyone... like that?" I may not have been able to say the words, but I couldn't stop myself from moving toward her. Emma looked up at me, the question still lingering in her eyes. Without an overwhelming burst of resolve, I let words free. "Just you."
