I'm sorry to say I didn't enjoy this one much. Pagan can see souls so when she sees Dank hanging around, she just assumes he is another lost soul. But he can talk to her and no other soul has. Dank pops up every now and then but Pagan just goes about her life. She even meets and falls for Leif, a super cute, sweet, and wonderful guy. They begin dating and everything is perfect in her life for awhile.
Where does Dank come in? Well he was just around. I never felt like I got to know him at all. He hangs around protecting Pagan and plays his guitar. I was mostly swooning over Leif the whole time. What really made this book not enjoyable for me was that Pagan becomes one of those weepy, whiny heroines that feels sorry for herself because she can't be with Dank. She cries all day, ignores her friends, and basically doesn't want to do anything if she can't be with Dank. Although even though Dank is ignoring her she says she will forgive him of anything and continues to use Leif for comfort.
Then at one point she even goes into a mental institution and doesn't want to leave because she thinks then Dank won't sing to her at night anymore! That just pushed it too far for me. There was a bit of a cliff hanger involving Leif. I'm curious to learn more about him, since he was the only thing I liked about this book, but the sequel won't be high on my list. I do have Vincent Boys by this author on my kindle and plan to give Breathe a try sometime. Hopefully I enjoy those more than this.
"I don't want you to just be my tutor. I want you to be the girl I look for in the halls every morning and save a seat for in the cafeteria. I want you to be the one waiting for me when I walk off the field at my games. I want you to be the one I pick up the phone to call just to make me smile."
"I don't dislike Leif. He isn't like what I thought. I was wrong about him. However, I'm also not hot after him."
"Well, I'm glad to know you're not hot after me. One less worry on my mind."
