Jillian Nejat is the only dating and relationship expert on the planet who is incapable of speaking to men. If they're living, if they're breathing, it's game over.
With her bank account at zero, her career a dumpster fire, and her dating life in a ten-year slump, she moves into a tiny, dirt-cheap NYC apartment.
Unfortunately, the apartment is already occupied.
Daniel (no-last-name) is a sexy, shirtless, six-pack wielding heartthrob who is also…dead.
He isn't living. He isn't breathing. He's a ghost. He's also the only man on the planet who Jillian can talk to.
Soon, Daniel's convinced that it's his afterlife mission to resurrect Jillian's love life. He knows, if he helps her fall in love then he can move on. Jillian agrees. The last thing she needs is a Lothario ghost haunting her living room.
But then, one practice date leads to another, one confession leads to more, and suddenly Jillian fears she's falling for the one man she can never have.
Ready (French Holiday) delights with this offbeat paranormal romance. Nerdy 27-year-old Jillian Nejat is the dating and relationship writer for a gossip site, The Daily Exposé, despite her "terminal inability" to even hold a conversation with a man. She's just moved into a heavily mirrored Manhattan studio—Star Trek memorabilia in tow—when a stranger named Daniel appears in her apartment. Turns out he's a ghost who haunts the place. It's a setup that's surprisingly useful: Daniel, a wealthy playboy in life, offers Jillian story ideas and dating advice to keep her readership from dropping. As they grow closer, Jillian can't help falling in love with the specter—until, in a shocking series of reveals, Jillian discovers exactly why Daniel has been appearing to her. Ready's twisty plot keeps readers guessing how this couple could possibly reach a happy ending. Meanwhile, a first-rate cast of supporting characters—especially cranky psychic Zelda Vertuse and Jillian's bestie, Serena—add charm. Ashley Poston fans will want to check this out.
