Gabrielle uses her telepathic abilities on a daily basis, it’s how she earns a living, but in doing so she’s noticed by the wrong people, a group who sends thugs to attempt to kidnap her, which is how she meets Dustin. He basically keeps her from getting taken by offering a little assistance with the assailants.
Gabrielle starts as an assignment for Dustin. He’s to protect her and bring her to his bosses, but leave them alone in the middle of nowhere and those invisible work ethics lines get kind of blurry. He knows the rules, but he just can’t help himself when it comes to her. And she doesn’t trust the man who saved her twice because he won’t tell her anything, but that doesn’t stop her from fantasizing about him.
“Gabrielle was torn between a desire to spit in his face…and an equal desire to kiss him.”
I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and glimpsing how her abilities work. I look forward to seeing where this series goes and how their abilities play into it. The only downside for me is the intense sexual buildup between Gabrielle and Dustin and then it’ll do something like skip to the next morning. Did I flip the page back to see if I missed something? Yes. Yes, I did. Did I? Unfortunately, no I didn’t.
My Favorite Moment: I loved Dustin’s explanation as to why he wanted the block removed as soon as possible.
“I was feeling your thoughts all night, woman. Every time you came, I could feel it crashing through you – a little bit, anyway. I want to feel everything.”
She goes home, and the next morning finds she's in sheep dip.
Well, she's in captivity--but not with the "Baddies", or is she? Dustin, her telekinetic rescuer from the previous day, is taking her far from the threat. But, Gabrielle can't read his mind and has no idea of his intentions. He says she just needs to meet with his bosses, and then she'll be set free, but to return to what? Her apartment has been invaded and perhaps destroyed.
Gabrielle knows she's vulnerable, and Dustin and his agency may be the only safe option. And being attracted to her savior is also a plus.
The writing is technically sound, but at times it felt very detached. I wanted more tension, more emotion, from Gabrielle, but she is often (painfully) over-analytical. For me, it had the effect of slowing down the story. I would have appreciated less-structured sentences and a faster-paced story. I enjoyed that she was out of her comfort-zone being unable to hear Dustin's thoughts. Their relationship progresses a bit rapidly, aided by three bottles of wine, but the biggest complaint was the fade-to-black/flashback sex scenarios. We coulda seen ONE of their exchanges in real-time. Again, this increased the distance between the story and reader.
This was a solid 3.5 after the first three chapters, but moved into the 4 range as Dustin and Gabrielle moved into their own "private" space. I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
As a freelance psychic for hire, Gabrielle comes across government agencies and some shady organizations. She does not want to have a permanent office with a 9-5 job. She would find that rather boring. Gabrielle schedules her own appointments with whomever she wants to do business with.
