I should have been working on school stuff, but I couldn't. I had to continue reading this book. I said that the fourth one was intense, but this one was even more so. The next book is the very last one. I really hope it ends happily. Please give me a happily ever after ending!
I swear, this series just get better and better. In this installment of Suze's life in Carmel, California, the delectably dangerous Paul Slater reenters her life just when she thinks she will never see him again. Paul is the Devil in a hot bod - or so Suze believes as she recalls the past summer when Paul tried to kill her and make her ghostly sweetheart, Jesse, disappear forever.
Paul claims to know what, exactly, they are, why they communicate with ghosts and what else they can do. But Suze doesn't know why he's so intent on teaching her about their similar powers. Unless he's lonely...? Is that why he so creepily continues to talk to her even after her many rejections of him? Is that why he kisses her the day he invites her over to his place under the pretense of learning more about mediators?
Meanwhile, Suze's relationship with the hot ghost who haunts her room, Jesse, has been awkward and littered with silences. It seems to have been this way ever since they kissed several weeks ago. Despite the strain in their friendship as a result, Suze can't help but fall more in love with Jesse every day, even though she knows that loving a guy who's been already dead for 150 years won't bode well for her future. To make matters worse, once Jesse finds out that Paul has recently transferred to Suze's school, there could be the blowout of a lifetime, as two hot, headstrong forces collide with one another in a battle for, much to her surprise, Suze's heart.
HAUNTED is full of fun and romance with a paranormal twist. I am a hearty supporter of the impossible romance between Suze and Jesse, but Paul definitely makes this series all the more interesting. Gotta love Meg Cabot and her wonderful characters.
This book was interesting. I found out almost at the end of this book that is was book 5 of a series, so I was a little dissapointed that I hadn't read the others ahead of it. It might have been more interesting if I had. Alone though it was still good. I just might have to read the other books in the series. It is kind of like "Ghost Whisperer".
This is the best Mediator book yet!!! It is like an after tale of the 4th book and has secrets and surprises not included in any other Suze Simon book! For people who are fans of Meg Cabot, you HAVE to read this book.
