Customer Reviews

The book fell flat, it was an interesting plot but didn't seem to be developed.
N. Tubb
Apart from all the personal circumstances, which also play a big part in the overall plot, the story developed further, which was good to see.
The "skill" sets of the twins weren't that interesting and needed to be developed as Author added more and more people into the story line..

Claire never felt as if she fit in with the world around her, and lately those feeling are much more overwhelming than normal. Her loneliness was bordering on depression. To add to her out of place feeling is her secret ability to transport herself to anyplace that comes to mind. Believing her life would always be empty, imagine her surprise when a man appears out of nowhere and quickly becomes an important part of her life.

Just like Claire, Darl James has mind travel ability and just like Claire his life was empty. But Darl knew there was someone special out there for him and he was determined to find her.

Together Claire and Darl compliment each other with their mind travel abilities. Where Claire's ability was limited to her being able to travel to places, Darl's ability was limited to being able to travel back home from where ever he was. Together their abilities are stronger and it also makes their lives more exciting, but not all of their newly found excitement is positive. Claire and Darl find their lives in danger from those who want to exploit their gifts and some who want to silence them.

Intimate Beings, the second book in Jessica Inclan's Second Romance series, is just as unique and intriguing as the first book of this series. Ms. Inclan's imagination is great and I like how again the hero and heroine are two peas in a pod who need each other to be whole. It was obvious that Darl and Claire belonged together, but I would have liked them to have more time to really get to know each other. Even though I felt everything moved at a very quick and high intense pace throughout the story, it was still a very entertaining read. I enjoyed Intimate Beings; it was a satisfying addition to the Second Romance series.

Intimate Beings by Jessica Inclan

Oversize paperback release date September 30, 2008
3 1/2 stars

Intimate Beings is the 2nd in the 3 part trilogy by amazing author Jessica Inclan. Claire Edwards is a beautiful teacher who has never fit in. She's never had a serious relationship and wonders if there's something wrong with her. Part of the reason is because Claire has a strange talent: She can think of a place and instantly transported there! The problem, however, is that she can't transport herself back. To add to her troubles she thinks she must be going crazy when a handsome man suddenly appears in her car.

But Darl James knows Claire. In fact, he has been hunting for her existence every since he discovered he had a twin. Twins are perfect mates, who have complementary powers. While Claire has the ability to transport herself anywhere she wants, Darl can only transport himself home. But having these abilities is dangerous as both are quickly on the run from those intenting on either killing or exploiting their talents.

The world that Jessica Inclan has built is fascinating and worth returning to, however, the author's nonstop action is difficult to follow for readers not familiar with her first book. What I found special about her first book is that I loved discovering each character's special ability and the complimentary power of their twin. There was a real feeling that the twins belonged together. I did not get this sense of connection and tension between the two main characters as I did with the first book. The early development of the characters relationship seemed somewhat rushed and there was some time where they were separated.

Jessica Barksdale Inclán is a new author to me and I was pretty glad when she got in touch with me about being interviewed and having her latest Second Romance series books reviewed by me. I'm a bit late in posting this review but it's better late than never and I really enjoyed reading the first book Being with Him so much and this series got really good with the second book Intimate Beings. This is a paranormal romance that I didn't at first really understand completely in the being of the first novel but I really got into towards the end and then the beginning of the second novel. So from my review of the first novel you can say that I was very anxious to read more about Milla, Garrick and her brother Eden and her sister Sophia who she only just found out she had. I was glad that she found her brother but now they had to find their sister Sophia who could be anywhere on Earth.

The heroine of this book is Claire Edwards but she's also known as Sophia when she was a young child on the other planet. She has the ability to go anywhere on Earth as long as she knows what the place looks like before she thinks about going there and is there. She has never told anyone about her special ability but her problem is that she can get to any place she wants but she can't get back home the same way she has to find another way. On top of that she can't bring anything with her except herself and the clothes on her back so that means no money either. Then an intensely attractive man who suddenly materializes in her car one day is any indication, Claire's not the only one with a special ability. Ever since Darl James learned of his true origins, he has been searching for his partner and life mate, the one whose gift will complement and complete his own.
