Jesse Knight is proof that circumstances can change in an instant. After he crashes his Porsche into a dump truck and enters the realm of the afterlife, Jesse is given a choice: death or a second chance. Desperate to stay alive, Jesse chooses a second chance and unknowingly begins to change his destiny forever. Newly tasked as a Protector, Jesse is assigned to help the stubborn, yet beautiful, Natalie Parker. For the past seven years, Natalie has existed among the soulless in purgatory after being killed on her wedding day. Granted the opportunity to learn why she really died that December day, she has just one problem: she hates her Protector. Though she finds him attractive and charming, his sarcastic wit, anger, and constant flirtations drive her crazy. Meanwhile Jesse, who is determined to understand why he is so drawn to Natalie, has only seven days to beat the clock, his past, and to give Natalie what she needs-or lose his own second chance at life. In this novel, two souls who unwillingly exist on the other side are about to discover that when it comes to second chances, timing is everything.
