bookshelves: best-series

"I'm Dex Foray, the only penis involved in the show."

Forget Camden, Javier and Sage. I still think Dex is best hero that Karina had created to date. He can be a douche, a neurotic or a romantic. We love him just the same. This time we're back with Perry's POV, oh how I miss the girl. This time our favorite ghost hunting duo had Rebecca breathing down their neck as their show's new producer. The trio new assignment sent them back to Oregon, the place where Dex and Perry first met each other. The Sea Crest Sanatorium was rumored to be haunted by tuberculosis patients that were quarantined in the hospital with a false promise of cure.

Dex was once again fantastic in his douchey ways, but now he add 'best boyfriend' in his list of repertoire. The way he 'behave' in front of Perry's family and Uncle Al was Aww... moment. His POV in Come Alive was freaking hilarious, but I miss seeing him from Perry's POV. As usual, his dirty mouth and crude comments are to die for,

"I'm your fucking man. That is never going to change. And now I'm going to fuck you till we embarrass ourselves."

I can't help but notice they kept reminiscing about the days when he first met Perry and their subsequent shenanigans. When it was pointed out that they only knew each other for eight months, I had the same reaction as Perry. I felt like I knew them for years, even though I only started reading EIT this year.

I turned into a mushy pile of goo every time Dex called Perry,

"Hey, kiddo."

Remember the ending in Come Alive? Dex keep finding the right moment and every time someone interrupted him, I was like "Urg!! Get lost".

In the last book I kept questioning whether did Perry still love Dex like she used to be after all the heartache and drama that she'd endured. I guess this book reaffirm us that Perry really do loves him and their relationship is as strong as ever.

"You... make me feel sane in this crazy world. You give me hope. You give me life. When I'm with you... I can't even believe I'm with you. It's like that every morning. Like I'm dreaming, but I'm not."

Many said the horror this time was the creepiest, but I don't know why I'm not that bother by it. I still think 'On Demon Wings' was the scariest. Is all kind of sad that the next book we will be getting will be the end of EIT series.

"You're an ass."
"You love it,"
"I love you, stupid. Ass or not."
