Falling for the Ghost of You Review

Falling for the Ghost of You By Nicole Christie

Book description…
Seventeen year old Violet Mercer returns home from her summer vacation in Hawaii to discover her boyfriend's cheating on her with a friend. As if that wasn't bad enough, her mother's marrying a man she just met.
Things take an awkward turn when Violet meets her rich new stepfather, and his gorgeous son--the hot guy whom she made a fool of herself in front of earlier that day! Zane O' Connor is sexy and charming, and way out of her league. He makes her forget her ex-boyfriend even existed. But there's no way she'd ever have a chance with him...right?
Through a strange turn of events, Violet finds herself living with Zane for a month. Somewhere between the fighting and flirting, they become friends. And it isn't long before that friendship blooms into something else...something more powerful than Violet anticipated.
But Zane is hiding something from her--something big enough to tear them apart if Violet ever discovered the truth about him. Her suspicions keep her from trusting him completely. She's been burned before--is she willing to take that risk again?
As she and Zane spend more time together, Violet realizes it's too late: she's fallen for the beautiful boy with the big secret. Will she get her heart broken twice in one year--or will her love survive the truth?

Falling for the Ghost of You is one of those books that I seriously recommend everyone read… it’s light, it’s seriously funny, and it’s sweet.  Nicole Christie takes her characters on this little roller coaster ride that you just don’t really want to get off of at the end and when you finally do you can’t help the urge to want to jump right back in line to ride it all over again. 

Violet was endearing… she has no idea of the beauty that she possesses on the outside and to me that made her that much more beautiful.  She’s not insecure in herself but she doesn’t really think she’s all that.  Sure she feels more comfortable in her own skin since she lost all her weight but she’s also uncomfortable because of her… assets.  She feels like that’s all boys look at and hates that instead of looking in her eyes they look at her chest.  Hate to break it to ya darlin’ but that’s a man for you!  Anyway, she’s kind hearted, she’s sweet and understanding, and the thing I loved about her the most is she’s a smart ass.  Poor Violet had one heck of a terrible day… anything that could go wrong did… including meeting the incredibly gorgeous Zane O’Conner.

Now Zane, didn’t quite do it for me at first and I think part of that is because he was not only kind of a slut but I thought his secret was something that it was not.  Actually once you’ve read the book, if you send me an email and ask I will tell you exactly what I thought his secret was… which I came up with when Violet was walking out of the bathroom, so you might just come to the same conclusion as me.

I have to say I loved this book.  I laughed out loud and I couldn’t wait to get to the next page to see what was going to happen next in sweet Violet’s life.  In all reality thinking back, the book was kind of predictable however, I so didn’t get it and I was well into the book before I even guessed the actual outcome.  Something my husband, who guesses the ending during every movie or says “I so called that” at the end, would be disappointed in… so Shhhh, don’t tell him ;-). 

Happy Reading!
