Description (From Goodreads): 

What happens when you're stalked by Death? You fall in love with him, of course.  Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.  Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.

Not only does he not go away when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done. He speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What she doesn't realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul she is falling in love with is not a soul at all.  He is Death and he's about to break all the rules.

My Thoughts: 
Pagan Moore is a normal high school student, well at least as normal as you can get when you see dead souls.  This has been going on for most of Pagan's life and for the most part, she has been able to ignore it, until she meets Dank Walker (Dank is short for Dankmar, which actually means "famous for his spirit").   Not only does Dank speak to her, which none of the other souls have ever done, he is smoking hot to boot.  The only problem is that Dank is also Death, and Death has come for Pagan.  He just didn't expect to fall in love with her.

I really loved this book.  It is the first paranormal romance Abbi Glines has written and she has done an outstanding job.  The world that Abbi creates in Existence is totally believable and the paranormal aspect of the story is intriguing and exciting.  The supporting characters add comic relief, especially Miranda and Gee, and the book is full of mystery and suspense, keeping you on your toes and keeping you turning the pages to see what happens next.  There is a love triangle involving the oh so perfect high school quarterback, who is definitely swoon worthy, but he isn't what he seems to be either.  Then, there is the romance.....the catch your breath and fan your face kind.  If you have ever read any of Abbi's Glines' books, you will know that she definitely has a way with the romance, and boy does she make it sizzle - I think this is her trademark, because she doesn't disappoint in any of her books.  I mean seriously, anyone who can make Death hot (and Abbi makes him as hot at the guy on the cover of the book) has got some serious talent.  If you love Romance, especially the paranormal kind, then you will definitely love Existence.   

Quote:  “You tempt me. I can’t be tempted. I’m not made to be tempted, but you, Pagan Moore, you tempt me. From the moment I came for you I was drawn in. Everything about you...”

Predestined, the second book in the Existence Trilogy, will be available April 3, 2012.
