Ms. Edie did it again with a book that took me by surprise and made me smile! And for those of you that have read the blurb and seen that it is not an erotic book - yes, I finished it all the way and loved it. Surprised, I know! But Ms. Edie really did a great job with Catittude that I had to see if she could give me more, lol. And she did. This is a very intriguing book to say the least. I mean you have a whole slue of things going on... Not in a bad way either. They all work for the greater of the book.
Like Cassie for instance... she can talk to ghost. Which on the rating of a trait you want your girlfriend to have is not the highest on the list. So, Cassie has been dateless for around four years. In the mean time, Joe... a hot cop - a dead hot cop has become her best friend.
What I really liked about this book was that Ms. Edie jumped right in there with the story. We find Cassie talking to Joe in the first chapter. And it went from there. We see the interaction between the two and it really made me think... Can ghost love? Cassie won me over because she just wanted someone who wanted her for her whole self. Not what she could do for them, not for half of herself and not to sell herself out. She believed in herself (with Joe's pushing, lol), she accepted what she is a long time ago... Now it is time to see if anyone else wanted to accept her. But putting her heart out there was not something Cassie wanted to do. At least that is what she thought until she met Luke Rivers...
Who.. yeah, Luke Rivers... you know the guitar player of that hot band a while back. Cassie did not know him or care to know him. She was at his house, by his request to take care of a ghost that would not leave him or his daughter alone. Luke is not your typical hero of a story. He had me whispering to myself "dumb ass," then he would have me thinking... you are an ass... Then he would have me in a little puddle over what he wanted to achieve for his daughters sake. Erin....
Now normally I do not do books with children in them, but I have to say that Ms. Edie did this very tastefully. So much so that I truly wanted to take Erin home with me and love her to death. She is not a brat, she is not a princess. She is a child who had a junkie mother, lead singer of the same band her dad came from. A child who was lied to - from her mother. Then when Erin almost witnessed the death of an overdose... she called 911 and it changed Erin's life forever... not just hers... Luke's as well.
Then we have Ms. Shay, the ghost that is haunting the house. She is quite a pain till Cassie figures out how to handle Ms. Shay. Now I will tease you a bit, Ms. Edie had me giggling at a part in the book when Ms. Shay and Cassie discuss Cassie's sex life.... or lack of one! That is all I can tell you! LMBO! Ms. Shay does not want to leave her house - end of story. Luke wants her out - period. Cassie is hired to gt rid of her - new story just waiting to happen, lol. How does this end.. humm... I am not sure. Okay, I am sure, I just can't tell you. But I will give you this. This is an amazing fun loving book. Ohhhh and yes, in case you are wondering, I did get my smutty sex fix! Ms. Edie does that very well. She held the sexual tension just right for a "family" story and then BAM gave it to me, lmbo!!!
This book left me laughing my butt off at some parts, feeling the need to smack Luke upside the head a couple of times, wishing that Joe was a real man, giggling over Hunk, wanting to cradle Erin to my heart and love her, and it left me really wanting to kick Tracy's ass. Ms. Edie pulled a lot of emotion from the reader of this book. She gave me everything and then some. Luke and Erin's story will leave you wondering is it really easier dealing with ghost or... men?!
Ms Edie, your writing is quite refreshing and I am loving it up!! Oh and also... I am looking forward (batting eyelashes) for more to come!!!
