I was given this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Sam and Zander are intresting characters and with the storyline the author wrote made them more so. I never read a book like this that a little of everything from romance, supernatural and a little scf-fi. That made the book unique and very fun enjoyable read. I love it, because it really wasn't what I expected when you see the cover and read the description. There was more to the book than you think, which made me love this book and the characters.
Gave this book five stars because I found it very enjoyable read that made me love the book :)

Review by: Amanda Nolastname on Nov. 01, 2012 :
The first word that comes to mind when I think about this book is...addictive. I was hooked by so many things; the romance, the paranormal, the action, the plot...need I go on?

I loved the fact that Dawn went her own way with the pace, that's the beauty of a book...you don't have to write what is deemed 'normal'. To me Sam and Zander's relationship kicked off just as it should. I thought the instant connection they shared was beautiful. It was as if they didn't have a choice...not that they wanted one. They couldn't stand to be parted and couldn't keep their hands off of each other.

Which brings me to the 'grown-up' scenes, -ahem-, their passion could produce flames...literally!!

I felt the confusion Sam suffers in the beginning transfered to the reader (me) and I found it exciting. Dawn wasn't giving me anything for free, I had to READ for it!! The connection of the past and present gave the story even more depth. It was well written and with incredible detail that made it SO easy to imagine. The characters were relatable and the general concept was original.

Fast-paced, action-packed, WANT MORE!

Normally I don't like being thrown right in the middle of the action in a book. However with this book I loved it. I really liked feeling like Samantha. I had no idea what was going on and where she was and who Zander was.

My favorite part of the book was watching her and Zander's connection and relationship grow! It didn't hurt that it was super exciting and hot to read!!

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good paranormal romance!!

On page one I was thrown into the confusion with Sam and held on for the ride. I had a ton of questions and fortunately, they were the same ones Sam was asking. I've seen a couple of reviews where they think it was too confusing, but I made perfect sense of the first chapter. I think the author intended for the reader to feel the chaos with Sam, it made it feel more real.

I loved watching her relationship with Zander develop and...well, let's just say I love where it started too! Certain scenes were nice and steamy!

I don't want to give anything away, but it's got a good creepy vibe too! I tried to do laundry halfway though and had to run back out of my basement!

This was a great read and I can't wait for the next book!

Right at the beginning you are thrown into a world of chaos for Sam. You truly feel you are Sam. I enjoyed this book from beginning to endand was left wanting more. At times you yell, laugh and even blush.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit slow at first, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. Sam and Zander have such chemistry, and it kept me turning the pages! This book is great if you like a steamy paranormal story!!

Review by: Gail Pillsbury on Oct. 28, 2012 :
This book is like junk food for your brain. It's a quick, sexy read without a lot of unnecessary back story or boring, drawn out dialog. The interaction between the main characters is steamy enough to keep you suspending the disbelief until you get your 'Ah-Ha!' moment. This book is truly a new idea in the genre of the paranormal, rather than a repackage of a story you've read before.

Review by: Jocelyn Sanchez on Oct. 27, 2012 :
This book was amazing. I can honestly say it keep me guessing which I love in a book. This book is about a woman named Samantha Ricketts who meets a man Zander Smith under odd circumstances. Sam doesn't remember how she got placed in a town half-way across the country and tries to figure out how when Zander comes and saves her life. Instantly Sam and Zander start to feel a connection between them, one they cannot ignore. Together they work together to find out the mystery of why Sam was sent there and what it all means for their future. This books had so many twists and turns and always kept you in suspense. I was always surpised and excited to find out what happened next and I loved the characters. Sam was such a strong and amazing character and Zander was loyal and brave. The connection between them was amazing and I really felt myself getting lost in the book with every word I read. I really recommend people to read this book, it was wonderful!

This book was pretty awesome. When it first started we were all confused on what was going on, just like the main characters. As it prgrossed though, there were definitely some strange turns of events, like the firey trash can. The sparks between Sam and Zander were off the charts. Definitely a good read.

Wow, ok so let me say I did not know starting out that this was a ghost story. I did not read anything about it, prior to reading it. It was part of a book club choice with author I adore. SO I WENT with it!!!
I am so glad I am in the book club. I really enjoyed the book, even though the ghosts scared me. LOL!

This book has a bit of everything romance, CHECK! Action, CHECK! Paranormal, CHECK!... I could keep going here.
I was at first a bit confused by all of it, and then I got into the main characters head. I realized I was confused, because she was confused. It was perfect. I had gotten so wrapped up into her mind and what was going on¡K once it clicked. It was a big AH HA moment! Perfect!!!Samantha was a fire ball and had a past that would scare Reagan from the exorcist. Zander was all man and protective of her. This story had me on my toes. I had so many things going on and my brain was working overtime to figure out the mystery.
Samantha went to bed and ended up half way across the country, only be saved from a fire by Zander. Who was handsome and well she was drawn to him. He was drawn to her. Why are they so drawn to one another? Why is Zander unable to control his emotions around her, and why are they tied to her? This was a quick, see you and have to have you romance. Which worked, once you find out the reasons behind this attraction? It all makes sense. (You will need to read the book º )
The story line of this book is great, it was fresh and exciting. It kept me on my toes, and wanting more. I love the past and present spin. I enjoyed Dawn¡¦s writing style. I found myself immersed in this world she created and really I hope she is turning this into a series. I think she tied up all the endings nicely and I do not feel cheated here but I would love to read more about this couple and the team. I am excited to see where Dawn takes us next.
This is a book for mature readers.

Review by: shona lawrence on Oct. 18, 2012 :
Other than the name I knew nothing of this book when I started reading it. I had picked it up as part of the publishers read and review book club. And I'm glad that I did.
Now maybe I have been stuck in the YA paranormal world for a little too long, but I assumed this was also a YA novel... oh I was wrong. This is definitely for adults which i discovered fairly quickly.

The story centres around Sam and Zander. One minute Sam is stood in her bedroom the next she is outside a church hundreds of miles away from home about to be trampled by a group of people fleeing a the burning building but rescued by Zander, who works for the military in the paranormal field. Who then tries to help her work out what happened to her.

The first couple chapters are a little confusing as there is very little back story, so you are not always aware of what's happening, but you are soon brought up to speed with your feet on the ground and running.... because this story does not let up. Yes there are a few moments when they are not out on the job and are tucked up inside 'exploring each other', but when they are working the story just motors along and drags the reader along with it. There is no putting this book down.

This is a story about Samantha and Zander. Samantha falls asleep and wakes up somewhere else. She has know idea where she is. Then Zander finds her and saves her, when they are together there is this conection they don't understand. As the book goes on they are trying to figure out why they have this conection.

This book is action packed and will keep you on your toes trying to guess what will happen next.

Disclaimer: I was given an e-book copy by the author for an honest review.

I fell in love with this book. More specifically with Samantha (Sam) and her hilarious attitude. She had me laughing throughout the entire story, and I couldn't wait to read what smart-aleck thing she'd say next. On top of that, the relationship between her and Zander is just awesome. They're so cute it's almost sickening, but in a good way, and the fact that they really do complete one another is just amazing. And let's not forget the burning trash can..... =)

Aside from the above, the story itself really grabbed me and never let go. It was so intriguing, and I just wanted to keep reading all the time (but wouldn't you know, life had to go and get in the way). I would think about this book while I was at work, driving, and I even had a dream about it, that's how good it is!!! The beginning just pulls you in, because you really have no clue whatsoever as to what's going on, and neither do the characters. You just learn along with them, which is so much fun to do. And the twists and turns the story takes were so great, I'd keep saying "One more chapter" only to find a cliffhanger waiting at the end, and I'd have to keep reading to see what happened!

I definitely recommend this for everybody who likes paranormal stories, especially mysteries, because this one has a lot of it. Go grab your copy, you won't be sorry!!! =)

Summary: Sam has woken up outside a church that has just exploded, not knowing how she has gotten there. She runs into a mysterious stranger in army fatigues named Zander. He is in a special branch of the Army. This branch is called S.P.I.R.I.T. They hunt down evil ghosts in order to stop them. The problem is Sam shouldn't be able to see Zander, or any of them. So why can she? And where did this feeling of recognition and attraction come from since they have never met each other before?

While, she spends time with Zander, and his crew while they try to figure out why she magically appeared during their mission she discovers that she has developed the ability to catch things on fire. Zander has developed the ability to cause storms and make lightning. Pretty soon they figure out that they have a ghoul after them. The ghoul wants Sam's soul for himself. With the help of Zander and his crew, will she be able to figure out what is happening and stop the ghoul from taking her soul before it is too late?

Review: I really liked this story. It is the perfect story to read during October with all the ghosts and stuff. This story was pretty fast paced, and it was hard to get bored because it kept up the momentum.

Zander is the perfect guy. He is smart, strong, and sexy. He is the type of guy that will make any girl's heart melt.

Sam is pretty awesome. She isn't afraid to do what has to be done. She doesn't wait for people to do all the work for her. She is strong and brave.

Their relationship throughout the story is pretty strong. It wasn't hard for me to feel the connection between them. They did have a pretty steamy connection. It does contain sex scenes, so if you are uncomfortable with those I wouldn't recommend you read this. If you are comfortable with them then this book is definitely for you. They were pretty hot.

At the beginning there were a few scenes that kind of confused me, but towards the end they quickly made sense. Everything makes sense at the end, so don't let some confusion in the beginning get you discouraged about this book. There isn't too much world building, there is just enough for everything to make sense, but it doesn't get bogged down in the details.

Overall, I really liked it. I suggest it to anyone who is looking for spooky read, and loves romance in a novel at the same time.

FTC: This was an ecopy given to me by Anchor Group and Dawn Gray for a honest review. Thanks so much!

SPIRIT pulls you in from the very beginning. The scene is set perfectly with a mixture of confusion and chaos. The characters are a strong presence and make an intense impression from the very start. The chemistry between Zander and Sam is palpable. Even for those that usually do not read the genre, SPIRIT is a page turner right from the start. The pace is action packed and there is no down time! The mystery surrounding Sam and Zander’s connection and powers keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Plus, the steamy love scenes between the two keep the reader craving more.
This story is a definite must read: filled with suspense, humor, action, passionate romance, and a creepiness that will make you second guess that bump you heard in the night! I would highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a fast paced thrill ride!

Firstly, thank you Dawn for an awesome read. I was given the opportunity of reading and reviewing this book and what can I say- I loved it!!! The confusing first 2 chapters were a welcome for my frustrated head to continue and complete the saga. The story line was good and I quickly became consumed by this book. Looking forward to another book by Dawn Gray,

Firstly this book is such a yummy bowl of 9 layer dip! Theres sooo much going on its one thing after another after another.. Theres a little of everything.. Ghosts.. Ghouls.. Romance.. Multi dimensions.. Action.. Telepathy.. Super Powers.. Laughs.. Death.. To be honest im probably leaving something out..

The book starts with a bang literally Samantha Rickketts wakes up and has no idea how she got to where she is.. The last thing she remembers is going to bed.. now shes standing on a hilltop wearing someone else clothes.. Suddenly the church behind her explodes then she meets Zander Smith.. Zander cant figure out what Sam is doing there he ushers her to safety! Once safe Zander questions how she can see him.. and to that i say WTFT (what the french toast) is he a ghost? Well now hes a ghostbuster! well no exactly this is far to complicated for me to explain so read the damn book ;)..

Sparks fly far too quickly for my liking.. They went from strangers to make out buddies in 5! pages.. Other than that i LOVED! Their very sexy relationship.. I often times caught myself blushing i honestly didnt blush this much reading 50 shades of gray.. This books is definitely more than their sex life though..

Shortly after meeting Sam helps Zander and his S.P.I.R.I.T team.. While trying to figure out how she got there and what her connection to Zander means.. They are able to speak to each other telepathically.. they both have super powers HEY! HEY! They discover they share a past in more ways than one.. Turns outs the ghoul Zander was after is yet another connection between the two..

I mean I really wasnt expecting 85% of what Gray put out there for me.. Some parts took a little longer for me to comprehend.. but once i did things were golden.. Now the ending was quite interesting and im very curious to see what comes next for the spirit team...

This is the story of Samantha and Zander, two normal people who meet under strange circumstances. And feel immediately drawn to each other. Sam goes to sleep & wakes up in another place, has no idea why she is where she is and Zander is determined to help her find out what's going on. They soon realize that they are destined to be together, they have met before, and when they are together they have powers. They realize that the town is an exact replica of the town Sam grew up in and fled from because of hauntings and nightmares.

This book is packed full of suspense, action, romance, and paranormal happenings. You won't want to put it down until you have finished it!
