I picked this book up because I saw a fellow book blogger recommend this series. I love a good psychic paranormal book so I instantly picked this book up. I couldn’t put this book down. It was captivating from the very beginning and I couldn’t predict what was going to happen next.
Cassie has spent her life being able to get into the minds of killers. She is a very tough and independent woman, but she is also very fragile and lonely. Her abilities were fascinating and I loved that she didn’t let her fear prevent her from using them to stop a killer. Ben was a surprisingly charming and protective man. I loved his protectiveness towards Cassie and how he would make sure she was taking care of herself. Their relationship was slow building which I think worked perfectly with the rest of the story.
The serial killer in this book was very fascinating. It was unpredictable and I wasn’t expecting the twist at the end. I really enjoyed Hooper’s writing style, especially with such a tense story. It made this book hard to put down and I really want to read the next book now, especially since it appears to be the mysterious Bishop’s book. I highly recommend this book if you are into romantic suspense, especially ones with psychics.
