Believe (Chasing Shadows, #1) by Mia Fox

Believe (Chasing Shadows, #1) by Mia Fox

Nate survived countless attacks on his Marine platoon while in Afghanistan, but one undying thought kept him safe -- the knowledge that Ella was waiting for him.

Ella marked off the days until Nate’s return by writing letters to him, knowing that once he was safely home, they would fulfill their promise to live each day to its fullest.

Theirs was a love that would endure separation...even in the wake of a tragic accident.

Although now apart, Ella is given reason to believe in ghosts when Nate’s presence visits her and remains her lover. But when another man enters her life, Ella struggles to give herself over to a new love and maintain her bond to Nate’s ghost. 

A romantic ghost story and love triangle tied to one woman’s need to...Believe.

Recommended for 18 years or older. 

Who knew life could be taken so daily and so fast. After having Nate come back from Afghanistan, Elle thought life was perfect until a deer crossed the road. When she woke up, Nate was gone and she was alone again. But Nate seems so close. Like right next to her. He is there; looking after her in the  daylight, but there is a problem. Nate is a Ghost.

I think was a great book and I would recommend it, but I hated the way it ended. NO SPOILERS, but the events that lead up to it goes down hill fast. What I mean is that from beginning to middle it was great. Nate is a Ghost and she is forced to see a therapist and they grow close, but after that it seemed that it lost its momentum. She decided to make a rash decision and tell her therapist about Nate, which anyone would think it would be insane, but the way she explains Nate and about growing closer seemed twisted even though up till that point she seemed totally normal about rationalizing Nate as a ghost to herself.

Overall, I did like this book and can't wait for book two, named Trust. Just wish Believe had a more believable ending instead of Elle acting like a child and a special someone acting like a complete and actually sane jerk. I would also like to thank Evaptopia Press for letting me review this book!
