The dead have been waiting for her…

Addison Beckett tries hard to pretend she’s normal, but she’s far from it. Since she was six years old, she’s seen the world around her unraveling, as if someone is pulling a thread from a sweater and it’s all slowly coming undone. When she ignores it, it goes away, so that’s what she does.
Enter her arrogant-but-hot professor Asher Green. He knows all about her special brand of crazy. In fact, he might be just as nuts as she is. Asher insists that the dead from a parallel dimension are trying to possess the living in this one. And since Addison seems to be the only one who can see these “wraiths,” she just might be the key to saving the world.
Addison wants nothing to do with Asher or his secret society, The Mortal Machine. But as their animosity grows, she finds it harder and harder to ignore the chemistry between them. And when she discovers that Machine laws forbid her from touching him, she realizes that’s all she wants to do.
Stop the wraiths. Break the rules. Save the world. All in a day’s work.

Normal was overrated, anyway. 

Now on to the excerpt!

“Confidence, Plaid. That outfit needs confidence. Be bold, aggressive. Believe you belong in that dress. Make everyone believe it.” He licked his lips as he stared at me, and I almost moaned before I locked it in my throat. Idiocy. He did not want me that way; he probably just needed to
break out his lip balm again.

Bold and aggressive, yeah that was so me. Not. “What, are we going to strut our stuff in Milan or something?” I tossed up my hand, frustration a hot simmer in my gut. “Who gives a flying monkey butt how I walk?”

“Impressions. Confidence is strength. You stink of fresh meat. You stink of weakness. I don’t want anyone you’ll meet tonight to think of you as weak.”

I wasn’t weak, except for my knees when I was around him, but I didn’t bother arguing with him. I thought about why my strength mattered and couldn’t come up with a reason. “Why?”

He gave me a come-hither finger. “Again. Head up, shoulders back. Make me shiver.”


Why did he have to say it like that, all sexy? My insides melted like chocolate under a flame. Like I could ever make someone like him shiver, anyway, but I strutted my stuff again and again. By the time he’d finished with my walking lessons, my feet ached, and if I frowned any harder, my lips would fall clean off my face.

Thank you Jocelyn! That was awesome!!
