Last month I killed a man… and now I'm afraid what I might do next.
As a hypnotherapist with a special talent, I'm very good at getting people to overcome their problems. My own problem, however, is that my talent comes from a dark place. If I tell you to do something, trust me: you will do it. Most of the time I can keep things from getting out of hand, but when my emotions interfere, I lose control. That's when people get hurt, sometimes even killed.
The only ones who know I've got a secret are my best friend Sukey and my boyfriend Sam. So far I've been able to keep them safe from the psychic cross fire, but what if one day I can't? Like now. Because now I find myself in the shadowy world of battered women and children, where I've met a little girl who's been violated in the worst possible way. As you can imagine, my emotions are about to interfere.
What I thought:
I really don't like reading about child abuse. But what I do like about the Mercy Hollings books so far is that all the problems that Mercy faces is real life issues. She may not deal with those issues in real ways, but it makes it for a very down to earth novel.
I was expecting some romance, I read reviews where people were knocking it for being too into the romance and not enough into the story. But I found it to be the opposite. A lot of story, very little romance. It isn't a bad thing, but I was expecting more in the romance.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
