Blurb: Being a telepath is no picnic, something Janis Graystone is learning firsthand. In the wake of a brutal attack and new warnings of a group with dark designs on her powers, Janis finds herself withdrawing from those closest to her — even the friend she’s falling for.
Scott Spruel senses Janis’s growing distance, and he’ll do anything to help her. That’s what friends are for, right? But will using his powers only cement his deadly fate — the one Janis is trying to protect him from?
Bad boy Tyler Bast has a secret. A few of them, actually. But what if someone else knows What Happened? The answer could destroy him. After all, some deeds are best left buried.
As menaces converge and choices dwindle, Janis, Scott, and Tyler must decide: hide their powers or risk everything to confront… The Watchers.
Review: I like that this was focused on another character and I think the cover for this one is a little more eye-catching than the first one, but I do wish that it had focused more on him. He didn’t seem to get a lot of screen time in a book that bares his likeness on the cover and so he felt a little more like a side-character that we were learning about along with the main characters.
I enjoyed myself once again with this book, I loved reading the mystery and feeling that suspense. I could feel the tension. There was a twist that I didn’t see coming and had my jaw dropping to the floor, for which I applaud the author.
I don’t know how I feel about the beginning coming back around to play into the ending because now, the plot twist, the surprise is kind of gone. I don’t trust and I can kind of see what can happen in the other books. Which makes me wish that the beginning wasn’t there in the first place, because now if there is a twist, which I’m sure there will be, it won’t be as shocking.
Still don’t like the creepy stalker vibe from Scott.
I know that I’m going to go on to the next book in the series and I’m loving that right now. It has been a while since I’ve been inspired to keep going on with a series and I’m so happy about that. Again, a little of this is to fill out pages in my book journal, but most of it is because I want to know what happens and I have Kindle Unlimited, which these books are free on.
I do feel like the first book was a little better, mostly because this story could have focused more on Tyler, who graces the cover, but I’m still enjoying myself and I feel like I’m going to keep going in this series because I want to know what happens and I’m going to keep thinking about this series.
Thank you for reading my review.
