L.L. Hunter is definitely an author I'd read again and again!
Adelaide Paige seems like a normal, everyday college student who just wants to finish her degree and go into her chosen field of study. Unfortunately, things aren’t what they appear, and she finds herself in possession of a dangerous and unwanted gift. With a simple touch, she is able to receive a vision of how that person will die. This isn’t something you want when your job forces you to cross paths with a killer. Will she use her gift to help catch a killer, or will she continue to hide out in the shadows of her life wanting more but too afraid to take a chance?
Adelaide better known as Addy to her friends is about to watch her life take a 180 from calm and predictable to turbulent and disconcerting. She is about to face her biggest challenge. Should she use her gift to do what she knows is right and risk being seen as a freak, or does she continue to hide within her own safe life while others are suffering a fate that she can easily change? This is a decision she never expected to be faced with, but it is also one that she cannot walk away from and ignore without dire consequences.
Much to her delight not all of the recent changes in her life are uncomfortable or painful. There is a very handsome and very protective man who awakens her heart from its perpetual slumber and offers his support as her life spirals out of control. Addy struggles with how far into her heart she is willing to let him gain access to. Her small, protective world no longer exists, and she must face her new reality. What remains is her decision to open her heart and allow herself to truly live a life of passion and possibility or crawl back into her painfully compact world of safety and ignorance.
What a beautiful journey Addy led me on! I was captivated by her heart and her determination to do what she could to make an impact on those around her. While she started off not wanting to go beyond her own little world, she ended up risking everything to do what she knew was right. In the end, her world was not only rebuilt, but it was filled with more love, hope, and promise than she could have ever dreamed. Sometimes we have to let go of everything in order to really see the blessings and opportunities that are right in front of our face.
L.L. Hunter has written a stunning and pulse-pounding story of the power of our choices. This beautiful story kept me reading until the very end without a break. I had to know what Addy would do next and if she was going to survive long enough to realize what all she could lose. The characters were powerful and impressive, and I hope to meet them again. This is an outstanding start to a very promising series, and I for one am very eager to see what Addy’s next adventure will be.

First thoughts: This was a fast, suspenseful, murder mystery, kickbum fast read. I really enjoyed what this book brought and the fact that it did managed to trick me a couple times over. Anyhoops. So YAY.
Thoughts on Plot: So as i mentioned just up there, this was a fast suspenseful, murder mystery. There were creep factors - and i mean who doesn't LOVE creep factors....what? Just me.... well then. Anyways, L.L. Hunter went to places others don't dare to do, and I really do appreciate that. Anyways I really liked the first few interactions with Killian and Addy, there is nothing more fun then explosive, angry love at first. So much fun! Anyways when you think you got it down, you are probably wrong. My biggest "thing" I guess is why did she suddenly start getting visions... I had a crazy ass theory that i was sort of hoping i was right about, I wasn't but I guess for me it was one thing i didn't fully understand *shrugs*
Addy (i might spell this wrong Adelaide?): She was really bright, and really interesting. I liked her for the most part, there were a few times that I felt like she gave in a little too easily, but I do understand WHY she did so it really doesn't bother me all that much. She was sassy and not afraid to stand up for herself, especially when it first came to meeting Killian ;) hehehehe.
Killian: hot Irishman, I want him. Seriously gimmie. Gimmie right meow! Anyways he was a smartass himself and i loved it. He was protective of his girl and they fall for each other pretty quickly but they have a lot of heightened moments and experiences. Anyways back to Killian I am really REALLY curious about his past, and his family, it was slightly mentioned and I want to know more.
The ending: i am eager to read on with the series.
