'Call Me Grim' Book Tour Review & Giveaway

I did receive a free e-copy of the book in order to facilitate an honest review.
About the Book:
The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake -- and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn't shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron's the local Grim Reaper... and he only saved Libbi's life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place.

And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark... but only if she accepts Aaron's job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.

My Review:
Truth be told, I'm not the biggest paranormal fiction fan. I'm too much of a skeptic! I did enjoy Call Me Grim though. I was intrigued about the mysterious stranger, Aaron. Of course, I was thinking there would be a romance between Libbi and Aaron. The romance is nice because it's sort of forbidden with the rules of being a Grim Reaper. 
 I liked learning more of Aaron's backstory and I was glad to see a different side to him (other than serious Grim mentor, lol). It was also interesting to learn how a Grim Reaper might approach a dying person. I have always thought of them as evil, scary things, but in this book, I saw a possible different side.
The ending was not at all what I expected. The author seems to have left it open for a possible sequel with Call Me Grim (which I would be happy about). I look forward to more sass from Libbi! If you like YA or paranormal fiction, check this book out and stay tuned for more from Elizabeth Holloway!
3.5 out of 5 stars
