Blurred (Kissed by Death, #2)
by Tara A. Fuller
Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Anaya, Heaven’s beautiful reaper, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.
Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker—a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.
The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?
Cash should have died in a fire but the reaper Anaya couldn't take his soul. Now he is trapped in a dying body surrounded by shadows and Heaven and Hell both want his soul. He only gets peace when Anaya is near him but he doesn't fully trust her. He has to decide which side he wants to play for when he dies and his decision can change many things. He is now a shadow walker and is a special being everyone wants. Anaya is the first girl besides his best friend he has felt anything for and he is trying not to let that sway his decision. Anaya has worked hard as a reaper to get the one thing she has always wanted since she died. Cash makes her feels things she hasn't in a long time. She will have to decide what she really wants. The past that has kept her going on these years or a future with Cash. Either way she and Cash have a fight on their hands as they are being pursued by both sides.
Anaya has tried to keep her feelings in check ever since she has become a reaper. She has a job to do in order to be with the ones she loves. She is a very sweet girl for a reaper and does what she has to do. She will fight tooth and nail for those she loves. Cash is moody and a very closed off person. His heart has been broken even if no one knows it. He see things that make him think he is crazy. When faced with the fact he will die and has a choice to make he takes it pretty good. I loved Cash he is so amazingly broken in some ways you can't help fall for him.
I enjoyed this book from page one. While it's not the first reaper book I have read I loved that it has it's own originality. You get to see inside Heaven, Hell and the Inbetween. The author does a great job creating this fantastic world. The characters are easy to get involved in as you read along you feel you are right there beside them. Don't think you have everything figured out as you read this book. I thought I did and got thrown a curve I didn't see coming. It kept e turning the pages just to see what would happen next. I loved the interactions Cash has with everyone. It lets you really get into his head and see his side. This is a great book for anyone who wants a different type YA paranormal.
