Kathy Ivan has created interesting characters with extraordinary issues and it all comes together perfectly. A captivating sexy, dangerous read. I await the next one!

Theresa Crawford hates being psychic. In fact, until recently she tried to pretend the ability didn't exist. But when Max Lamoreaux came and asked her for help in finding his godson, she couldn't refuse. Theresa and Max had briefly dated a year ago but things never worked out. Now Max wants a second chance with Theresa. Can Theresa help Max find his missing godson? And can each of them face their past in order to have a future together?

Kathy Ivan is a new author to me but I will absolutely be looking for more from her in the future. If I get really lucky she'll write a story for Max's brother Remy! Max and Theresa are both characters that make you anxiously want them to have their happy ending while the suspense adds just the right amount of angst to keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend Desperate Choices. Readers can't go wrong here!

Theresa Crawford never thought her ex-boyfriend, Max, would ever come seeking her physic help, especially since he had openly scoffed her abilities and clearly stated his belief that she was a fraud. But now Max's godson, Tommy, is missing and Max is desperate without any leads. Not only do we get to watch Theresa and Max reconnect, but we also get to watch the missing godson and one who is responsible.

I really enjoyed "Desperate Choices." The writing flowed as the story progressed and moved from character to character. With the changing POV it wasn't a mystery as to what happened, but it created a highly suspenseful story knowing what everyone is doing but not knowing how it will all work out.

The characters were very real and well fleshed out. By letting us into the minds of the characters, we come to understand them. Even the "bad guy" created sympathy for his cause even though he went about things in a horrific manner. The magic aspect of the story was done very well and was finely interwoven into the story making it believable.

I appreciated the romance in this book wasn't "lust at first sight" but rather a reconnecting of two people who have known each other for years. The development of their romance was nicely done making it both believable and desirable.

I was really moved by the theme throughout the story that good can still come out of bad situations and the bad choices of others. Theresa is living proof of that--she suffered a tragedy in her teens but out of it a friendship was cemented with Remy, Max's younger brother. Not only did she gain a best friend, but it also led her to Max. There's hope that with all that Tommy is suffering, some good will come out of it. It is so much the opposite of blame.

I highly recommend "Desperate Choices" for those looking for a well developed suspenseful story with fleshed out characters and a wonderful love story.

I am very impressed with Ms. Ivan's debut novel. This story has it all - gut-wrenching suspense, a unique plot, romance and sensuality, and characters that you really feel for and root for. The story kept me engaged on every page. I can't wait to read more of Kathy Ivan's books!

I truly enjoyed this novel. It has meaningful relationships and is sexy but not over the top. I look forward to more of her work. A good read. You will enjoy it.

Wow! Just... WOW!

Kathy Ivan just took me on an amazing ride with Desperate Choices.

The story weaves you through the streets of New Orleans with a plot that unfolds into a tale of kidnapping, heartbreak, passion, murder and love.

I applaud the author on her creation of every one of the amazing characters that came alive through her words on every page. I was captivated from the description of the mouthwatering food of the south, to each step she takes you through, of the past of her leading lady, to the details of the investigation.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys a passionate romance and a well thought out suspenseful plot.

A fantastic debut that had me on the edge of my seat from the first page. You know a book that starts with an ex boyfriend asking the psychic heroine for help to find his missing godson is going to be a good one, and Ivan didn't disappoint. I can hardly wait for this author's next book.

Fasten your seatbelt! This paranormal suspense takes the corners on two wheels. Ms. Ivan's got a true talent for creating characters to fall in love with and weave them into one heck of a nail biter plot. I was so fascinated by the unique talents of the heroine, Theresa, that I wanted more. This will keep you on the edge of your seat and the pages turning. The romance is believable and incredibly steamy. The plot twists were excellent and caught me off guard. Get comfortable because you won't be putting this one down until the last page.
