“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.
