Goodreads Synopsis: 
What happens when you're stalked by Death? You fall in love with him, of course.
Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.
Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.
Not only does he not go away when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done. He speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What she doesn't realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul she is falling in love with is not a soul at all.
He is Death and he's about to break all the rules.

I wasn't too sure about this book when I first started it. The story was kind of slow going and the dialogue seemed childish. But, once it got to going, I couldn't put it down. I really wanted to know more about Dank. I am totally curious about Lief and really felt for him. I want to know exactly what Pagan's story is and why she can see ghosts. Obviously, the author left some unanswered questions out there (especially the one that goes with the last sentence of the book!) but at least I know there's two  more books out there to give me answers. So, yeah, once I got warmed up to it, I really liked this book.
