by Viola Estrella
Publisher: Self
Released: October 25th 2014
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Paranormal Romance
How I got it: Received a copy from the author

Rachel Spencer's life has been hijacked by the supernatural. Ghosts seeking help with their unfinished earthly business won't leave her alone. Her only hope for returning to normalcy and passing her next attempt at the bar exam is making a deal with one of the ghostly intruders. It should be simple--Ella keeps the other spirits away if Rachel agrees to help Ella's two teenage sons. No problem. Well, not until she meets the boys' guardian.

August Kline misses his old life. He never planned to raise two teenage hurricanes in an old house in small-town Indiana. But here he is, and he's determined to make the best of it...if he could only keep the house in order and not completely screw up his nephews.

Enter a gorgeous redhead who pops into August's world when life is at its grimmest. Rachel claims to be an old friend of Ella's and offers to help around the house. Sparks fly whenever they're together, and August is falling fast. Rachel keeps her distance, worrying her ghostly secrets will sabotage any chance of a relationship. But when danger appears and threatens the people she has grown to care about, she may have to face more than her own fears.

Review: This was a sweet, if frustrating, read.
Rachel loses the love of her life only to have him come back as a ghost triggering a latent ability to see and communicate with ghosts. This has messed up her life completely, due to ghosts she failed the bar exam and feels like she's going crazy. When Ella, a ghost trying to help her family, strikes up a deal Rachel can't refuse. Ella will keep the other ghosts away and help her pass the bar, if Rachel will check in on her two teenage boys and brother. Easy peasy, right? Enter August, Ella's brother and the boys guardian. August has gone from being a playboy living up the band scene to respectable small town doctor raising two teenagers and trying to run a household. Saying he's in over his head is being nice.
Rachel and August have great chemistry and work well together. My complaint with the book is the back and forth, it drives me nuts. Rachel pushing August away, then giving in, only to push again. Argh! But the book was good, and the plot kept me reading. I was drawn in by the supernatural aspect, hooked by the romance and intrigued by the mystery. All in all this was a well rounded book and I enjoyed it.
