A year ago, Kiera's sister was murdered. Now, Haley's back. As a ghost. And she has a message for Kiera: Jaden, Haley's ex-fiancé, is Kiera's soulmate. More than that, Kiera has six months to get him to fall in love with her or the two of them will be eternally alone. But why would Jaden be in love with a plain Jane like her? Haley says she'll provide ghostly pointers. All Kiera has to do is let Jaden see her kinky side.
Since Haley's death, Jaden's been emotionally paralyzed. His father's gotten sick of it. He gives Jaden an ultimatum: marry within six months or else he and his disabled brother will be disinherited. If it was just him, Jaden wouldn't care, but his brother needs the money. So Jaden goes to good friend Kiera to complain—and finds her dressed like a sex siren and discovers she's damned good in bed. Not only that, but she offers to marry him.
Now Kiera's got six months to turn a marriage of convenience into a love match and free her sister from purgatory before Kiera's obsessive boss succeeds in killing Jaden.
What I found endearing about this book is the love the characters have for one another. Even though some of them don't want to admit their true feelings at first, you can feel the love through their actions. Having a ghost/spirit like Haley in your corner wouldn't be a bad thing to have on a bad day either.
Even though, there are some scenes people might find objectionable. It shows the love Kiera and Jaden have for one another. The trust they have in their relationship is reflected in the ways they show their love physically.
There are definitely a few surprises along the way. I can't wait to see how the author, Nicole L. Pierce, continues with Haley's story. Picking up this book will put a smile on your face and have you craving more of Nicole L. Pierce's writing.
