“This book was a quick read and the chemistry between Elle and Nick was palpable.” ~Under the Covers

I am torn between liking and being a bit meh about this series.  I have to say I DREAM OF DANGER was a better book for me than the first in this series.  And although I found the story interesting, it lacked something to keep me invested and wanting to know what happens next.

But see, I have a problem.  I don’t think I’m a fan of the romantic suspense with the light psychic/paranormal element.  Either give me a straight romantic suspense with hot military guys and a suspenseful and action-packed plot or just give me a good paranormal romance.  The light mix of the two doesn’t do it for me.  I think if the author wanted to take this story more of the X-Men route it needs more of that.

We do have the big bad crazy which is causing all sorts of trouble in this book.  The bad guys is like a mad scientist.  I didn’t love reading his point of view and wish those parts were a bit shorter.

Then of course there’s our main couple.  Nick and Elle’s love story is a second chance romance.  They knew each other before he was a special ops military guy and before she was a known researchers in the psychic field.  Her colleagues have started disappearing and just before she does as well, she sends a psychic call for help to her one true love, Nick, who she hasn’t seen or heard of in ten years.  Nick and then Ghost Ops then come to the rescue.

I loved their relationship and even though a bit rushed, they had history so I overlooked that.  Nick was supposed to come back to Elle and just didn’t because of his duty and being called away on a mission.  By the time he came back Elle had gone on with her life, changing her name and following her other dreams in different places.

This book was a quick read and the chemistry between Elle and Nick was palpable.  They definitely kept the story interesting.  I am on the fence about continuing with the series but since this book ends in a cliffhanger…. I may have to.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
