Seventeen year old Violet Mercer returns home from her summer vacation in Hawaii to discover her boyfriend's cheating on her with a friend. As if that wasn't bad enough, her mother's marrying a man she just met.
Things take an awkward turn when Violet meets her rich new stepfather, and his gorgeous son—the hot guy whom she made a fool of herself in front of earlier that day! Zane O' Connor is sexy and charming, and way out of her league. He makes her forget her ex-boyfriend even existed. But there's no way she'd ever have a chance with him...right?
Through a strange turn of events, Violet finds herself living with Zane for a month. Somewhere between the fighting and flirting, they become friends. And it isn't long before that friendship blooms into something else...something more powerful than Violet anticipated.
But Zane is hiding something from her--something big enough to tear them apart if Violet ever discovered the truth about him. Her suspicions keep her from trusting him completely. She's been burned before—is she willing to take that risk again?
As she and Zane spend more time together, Violet realizes it's too late: she's fallen for the beautiful boy with the big secret. Will she get her heart broken twice in one year—or will her love survive the truth?
For readers seventeen and older due to sexual situations and language.
Violet is funny, smart and a best selling author of a popular book series (though no one but her mother knew that part about her). Although Violet’s behavior often reflected as a stereotypical teenager, I couldn’t help but to like her, She says the most outrageous things when she’s nervous and I found myself often laughing out loud uncontrollably many times throughout the book.
Being only 17 years old and her first romantic relationship, she and Zane were on a quite a bumpy ride. she has been often jealous and throws tantrums when things does not go her way. Zane is quite patient with her even thought I did have my doubt on if their relationship could go on.
I thought the secret of Zane was just meh, I am also not sure how he managed to pull that off. I think I would love to read more about the interactions and story between revealed Zane and Violet, since I am a sucker for that type of novels (Sorry, I am trying not to spoil the story here). So for me when the secret revealed and how quickly the book ended were kind of a downer for me. I really wanted the story to go on!!
Falling For the Ghost of you was a really fun, funny and sweet young adult contemporary romance.
