Purchased: September 9, 2016, free on Kindle and I would like to thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
Blurb: Tessa was a runaway as a teenager—her parents put her in an institution when she told them she could read minds. After they died she was put into a foster home where she was abused mentally and physically from the time she was twelve years old. At sixteen, unable to take it anymore, she runs away from home. Now twenty-five, she has lived out of her car and trailer for years, moving from state to state and making her living as a psychic. She reads minds but can’t tell the future. Other than that she has no other extraordinary powers. Her foster parents are still in California.
Kristian a two hundred years old Vampire. He has been alone most of that time, and has never gotten over the woman who made him. He killed her to save his own life, but there remains a bond never broken, even though she’s gone now. He is immediately drawn to Tessa, the enigmatic human who can read minds. He’s not sure what the attraction is, but he knows it goes beyond her ability to read minds or the fact that she can help him.
When a group of powerful Witches, the Calders, who are seeking to abolish vampires from the face of the Earth, Tessa and Kristian must now fight not only for their own survival but to protect one another.
Review: I was very nervous about this book because I had gotten multiple e-mails from this author asking if I would be able to read and review almost all of her books.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I admit, I enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read the others. The only major problem I had was with the romance, it happened at the drop of a hat and was very abrupt before I could feel anything for the characters.
I think it was also the cover that gave me some reservations about this. I think it’s beautiful but it also gives me the feeling that the book isn’t as good. Maybe because I’ve seen covers like this and the stories just were not written well.
The other problem I had with it was just a little thing about Tessa. She knows that she’s been followed by the Witches for three states and then she goes and says that they were behind her before she met them? No sweetie, that means they were following you long before you met the vampires.
Besides those problems though, I really enjoyed this book. The pace was perfect for how short it is and the plot was engaging and really sucked me in.
Thank you for reading my review.
