Review: Existence by Abbi Glines

YA Paranormal Romance

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.

My Review:
Let me start off by saying I am one of those people that judges a book by its cover. I know, I know....slap my wrists if you wish. You have the ever gorgeous Pepe and Stzella on the cover. I know you probably see them on a ton of covers now, but this one is just absolutely stunning!  If death looked like that, I'd fall for him too!
I loved the concept of this book. I haven't read too many books involving deities and it was quite interesting. Pagan has seen souls all of her life. No matter how much she has tried to ignore the super sexy soul from the picnic table, he doesn't seem to be going away. She wonders why he is the only soul that has ever spoken to her. Pagan isn't like any soul that Dank/Death has seen, which intrigues him. She starts tutoring Leif, the hottie star football player. After spending some time together, Leif reveals he has some feelings for Pagan. She is hesitant to start a relationship with Leif because she is drawn to Dank. What Pagan doesn't know is that Dank is Death and her soul has been marked to die. I don't want to spoil the rest so I will leave it at that.

The chemistry between Pagan and Dank is HOT!!! You will definitely need a fan after reading some of the scenes! Check out Abbi Glines' website for Dank's POV on some steamy chapters and be prepared to swoon! The second book in the Existence Trilogy, Predestined, is now available and it was AWESOME!
