Review: Inbetween by Tara Fuller

Goodreads Page
Since the car crash that took her father’s life two years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky—and unending—lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option. 

It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him heck about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left...his soul.

Release date: August 28, 2012

Good points: 

At first, I wasn't going to even read this book. Reapers? I wasn't so sure. But when I got a chance to read the e-ARC, I jumped at the chance.

And I don't regret it. Inbetween was amazing. 

I loved that it was from a girl's point of point, then a guy's. And Tara did an awesome job of telling both parts!! <3

Emma, even though her dad has died, and "accidents" keep happening to her, she still goes around, still trying to live life. 

Finn was awesome. The best hero ever. I loved him. And I can't see why Emma wouldn't either. ;) He has green eyes!!! Green eyes are the best. (the swoony-est) And the fact that he's a soul, even better. And, he was in the army before he died. *sighs contently* 

Emma and Finn's relationship was shaky at first. Emma wasn't sure if she was losing her mind, or this was all real. And the fact that Finn couldn't touch her without getting in trouble, it was a tense relationship. But they found a way through it all.

Annnnnd....Cash. Cash was awesome. I have friends who are boys, and I know how awesome they can be. And Cash was awesome. And I was glad that Cash wasn't going after Emma. Sometimes you just need a guy friend who's just...your friend, you know?

And the villain? Meave??? She was great!! She was crazy, and vengeful and all that great villain stuff. ;) (Even though I don't like her, she was a great villain.)

And I loved the whole "reaper" concept. I don't really read stuff like that, and I really enjoyed it. I liked how there was a reaper who pulled people who were "bad" to Hell. And one to put "good" people to Heaven. And then, Finn...I was a bit confused on who he reaped people for, but I was pretty sure it was the Inbetween, where souls get another shot at life if they make it that long.

Emma and her mother's relationship was tense too, Rachel just wanted to get re-married and be happy, but Emma just wanted her dad back. And her mom kept saying she wanted to be happy and Emma wasn't happy about it. But I think Emma and her mom will be ok, Parker seems like a nice guy. ;) (and he's a cop!!!)

Negative points:

The language, even though it wasn't as bad as other books I've read, I still don't enjoy it. But I didn't let it ruin the book for me. :)
And the fact that Emma keeps lying to people about the souls, I don't like lying, but I think in this case, Emma would be sent to Brookhaven again if she said she was talking to and seeing souls. So I think it's alright for now. ;P

Inbetween kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. Most of the time I was either doing this:

"*Covers mouth with hand* Oh my gosh....oh my gosh!!" Or...."Just kiss her already you idiot!!" 

I cannot wait for book 2! And don't forget to pick up your copy of, Inbetween when it comes out in August! :D

Author Bio (Spotlight)
Description: Tara A. Fuller
Tara Fuller writes novels; some about grim reapers and some about witches. All of course are delightfully full of teen angst and kissing. Tara grew up in a one stop light town in Oklahoma where once upon a time she stayed up with a flash light reading RL Stine novels and only dreamed of becoming a writer. She has a slight obsession with music and a shameless addiction for zombie fiction, Mystery Science Theater, and black and white mochas. Tara no longer lives in a one stop light town. Now she lives with her family in a slightly larger town in North Carolina where they have at least three stoplights.
