Jason Walker is a child star turned teen heartthrob turned reluctant B-movie regular who’s sick of his failing career. So he gives up Hollywood for northern Idaho, far away from the press, the drama of LA, and the best friend he’s secretly been in love with for years.
There’s only one problem with his new life: a strange young man only he can see is haunting his guesthouse. Except Benjamin Ward isn’t a ghost. He’s a man caught out of time, trapped since the Civil War in a magical prison where he can only watch the lives of those around him. He’s also sweet, funny, and cute as hell, with an affinity for cheesy ’80s TV shows. And he’s thrilled to finally have someone to talk to.
But Jason quickly discovers that spending all his time with a man nobody else can see or hear isn’t without its problems—especially when the tabloids find him again and make him front-page news. The local sheriff thinks he’s on drugs, and his best friend thinks he’s crazy. But Jason knows he hasn’t lost his mind. Too bad he can’t say the same thing about his heart.
So I picked this book for one reason, the author. I just love Marie Sexton’s work.
And this was no different, so wonderful, sweet, charming, a little nail biting at the end tale that is so unique it just perfect.
Jason moved away from Hollywood to rethink his life. He’s loved the same guy who can’t return the feelings, h’s career is not going well and his parents have pretty much wrote him off.
As he looks around the house he sees a face that no one else sees. As the story unfolds we find out that Ben has been trapped for 150 years all because of a sister that cared too much.
Too be able to see the ‘new world’ through Ben’s eye’s was magical. And to see Jason watch Ben, watch the world was enchanting.
Even though the basic plot was kind of predictable, we had enough twists that kept you guessing on the who is he really, will they ever be truly together. And finally, yes he gets his HFN ending.
