Summary: (from goodreads) Avery hasn’t had it easy.
When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash. Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family member she has left. And Caroline is dying.
So when Death comes knocking (quite literally) in the form of the damaged and dangerous, Brennus, Avery makes a deal with the reaper in order to save Caroline.

Brennus is an Ankou.

One of the many, once mortal men and women, who were given the choice to become an immortal in exchange for ferrying the dead over into their afterlife.
Nine years ago Brennus took Avery’s parents and tried to take Avery, but she fought him and won. Amazed by her strength Brennus followed Avery and has watched over her.
Now he knows Avery is the one to offer him freedom from his obligation to the dead.
And he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

A YA Paranormal Romance for older readers.

This was another great book by Samantha Young. Even though it was short, it still held my attention the entire time. It was definitely different from the love stories I've read in the past. I loved the fact that Samantha was able to fit such a good story into only a few pages and not have it feel rushed. Samantha is definitely one of my top 5 authors! I can’t wait to continue reading some of her fantastic work. 

Avery is living with her aunt, Caroline since she was 10 years old. Her parents died in a car accident when she was a little girl and her aunt took her in and raised her. Now her aunt Caroline is dying from cancer and Avery is having a hard time learning to accept the sad fact that the one person who completely loves her is going to die. I truly enjoyed Avery character – spunky and yet shy at the same time. One night when she goes to club 4.0., she is drawn to this man with a nasty scar on his face. She can’t explain why she feels so connected to him. Little does she know that they have met before. Now Avery has a chance to save her aunt’s life, but will she take it? I guess you will just have to read it to find out.
