I absolutely loved this series!! I got the first book free from Barnesandnoble.com and purchased books two and three as soon as I finished the first. The last book is not available on barnesandnoble.com so I made my first ever purchase here at smashwords to get it.
I actually liked this series so much that I am re-reading them now to catch some of the things I wouldn't have gotten the first time through. This is a great story. On top of that, it is clean, so my daughter can read it as well. I will definitely be watching for other books by Mrs. Higginson!!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
At the age of 17, Rogue commits suicide two days after his girlfriend is killed in a car accident during which he was driving. Now, he works as a reaper for Death. His job is to reap the souls of others who commit suicide, not to intervene and save them, but that is exactly what he does for Emerson. Emerson is the spitting image of Rogue’s girlfriend, Lily. How can he not save her this time when he wasn’t able to save her last time? So, when Rogue stops Emerson a second time, he is sent to earth in someone else’s body for one week. His mission: convince Emerson not to kill herself or Death will steal her soul and torture her as he does the rest of the reapers. As Rogue and Emerson spend the week together, they begin to have feelings for each other. When Death makes Rogue an offer, will he be able to convince Emerson to stay with him forever or will he be able to give her up and let her live?
This was an enjoyable, quick read. Rogue is a great hero. He is a really good guy and not the screwed up, hot, alpha male that we have come to know and love. We learn more about Emerson as the story moves along. She seems to have it all, but she has her secrets.
The story is written from Rogue’s point of view, which I loved. We get to meet Rogue’s friend/fellow reapers. I really enjoyed seeing the relationships he has built with each of these characters. These relationships show the kind of person Rogue really is…he cares for people and tries to bring his friends a little happiness in a place where none exists.
I would recommend this book for those who love YA books. I had it in my head that this was the first in a series, but I can’t find anything saying that for sure. It appears to be a stand alone. Although there were some sad sections, overall, this is an uplifting read about loss, love, and redemption.
