We'll start with the blurb:
After years of loving Johnny from afar, Cassie is finally going to make a move. She times her day so she can walk him home after his basketball game and talk to him alone. But on that walk the two of them witness a car crash, and Johnny unwittingly reveals his secret: he's a reaper, charged with collecting the souls of the dead.
Cassie doesn't know what to think about the boy who she's had a crush on for so long. Her best friend, Kara, urges her to stay away, insisting he's dangerous. But, with no one else he can confide in, Cassie sees it as her chance to get close to him.
Will the reaper claim her soul before she can claim his heart?
Basically, there's Cassie, hopeless romantic who has finally decided to make a move on Johnny, and Johnny, who happens to secretly be a reaper. And he plays basketball and takes science tests. Both are seventeen at the start of the book. It's your basic girl meets boy, boy turns out to be a potentially dangerous mythical creature scenario.
In terms of genre, somewhere in the YA paranormal romance/romantic comedy area. It's more light-hearted than my other stuff, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to murder your favourite character when you least expect it. (And if that reminds you of anything - sorry not sorry.)
I've already given Oct 31st as my absolute, release no later than date, but I'm hoping for sooner.
