The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield.
Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely.
Laken discovers her long dead boyfriend, Wesley, has been thrown into this alternate world as well. He is quick to inform her she suffered a horrible fall and that her memory hasn’t fully returned. According to Wesley the other life she had—her name, her family, they were simply a side effect of her brain trauma.
In her quest for answers she meets Cooper Flanders, the son of her psychiatrist who readily believes every word she says.
Laken Stewart knows she died on that hot July afternoon, but now she’s alive—or is she?
Team Cooper FTW!
Don’t you love how I start off almost every review by distinguishing which pairing I like best? Ephemeral by Addison Moore dives into the world of Angels when Laken Stewart thrown into a world she has no knowledge of. The last thing remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield to her death, only she’s not dead.
Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely. Laken is presented with a world that takes people from her old life and incorporates them into the new life given to her by the Countenance.
Not only is her dead brother somehow alive in this world, but her dead boyfriend and love of her life Wesley is also living and breathing…Or are they? Moore does an amazing job of catapulting the reader into a world full of mystery and intrigue as Laken races to try and find the truth with the help of Cooper and a few other’s along the way.
If you didn’t already notice, I love Cooper and Laken. Not just together, but individually as well. They are my favorite characters in Ephemeral. While the book is full of great three dimensional characters who all seem to have their purpose, I feel the most developed characters are Laken and Cooper.
Their banter makes me smile and the way Cooper openly flirts with Laken despite the fact that she’s seeing Wesley is so sexy in a bad boy kind of way, but at the same time I feel like he less dangerous than Wesley. The way Moore describes Cooper makes him delectable and exciting. There’s so much we don’t know about him, so much Laken doesn’t know about him and yet they have this connection that bounces off the page and captures you.
Putting aside the romance, though that’s one of my favorite parts of the book, the plot is great. The actual concept of getting tossed into a world after death or because of death is awesome. Ephemeral takes this original idea of Angels and combines it with a modern day characters to produce this mystical, mystery that you can’t help but get immersed in.
If you like fast paced, adventurous, paranormal romance stories I would highly recommend checking out this book!
