First are the characters… You’ve got Holden Payne, who I had a real difficulty liking in book one, Insight. He’s a pushy, privileged, arrogant ass who uses his abilities to get men into bed with him. Using men for sex, on top of everything else, made him very unlikable. That carries over into Oversight significantly. I mean sure, having a psychic ability that enables you to tap into the feelings of the person you’re having sex with, while having sex? It’s something I can totally get behind. But Holden uses it as a tool and he’s too manipulative. On top of that, Holden is so freaking naive! And yea, he’s naive for a reason, mostly because of the privileged upbringing he had, but I still yelled at him so many times. Holden starts off so unlikable that I thought I’d struggle with him throughout the whole book. I WAS SO WRONG!
I’m totally on board the Holden train now. His character development in Oversight is fantastic. I have notes I took while reading and one of them is basically me being disgusted by Holden wanting to use sex as a tool to get information from Sixtus and it seriously grossed me out. But that’s the thing about great character development… the character does actually develop.
So then you’ve got Sixtus Rossi…the man is my walking wet dream. The hair, the beard, the tattoos, the brawn, the straight talker, the witty conversation, the massive inner strength that overshadows all that physical strength. That’s the man for me. With Six’s Invulnerable ability so strong, he’s totally safe from Holden and his manipulative nature. I really love that about Sixtus because while he can seem cold and uncaring, with little to no empathy, he’s so much deeper than that. Getting to know Sixtus, how he ticks, what makes him work, learning his life story, was some really great storytelling, and a lot of fun. Putting both Holden and Sixtus together and seeing them first struggle, and then not, was really a joy. As far as the other characters in the story, we get reappearances from favorites that were in Insight, so that made me exceptionally happy as well.
Then we have the story. Not just the story between Holden and Sixtus, but we have a overarching story that started in Insight, and continues here. For Holden and Sixtus, their enemies to lovers story flows well. The struggle, the push and pull, the trust that grows, the exploration, it all had me falling in love with them both. These men have PASSION. They way they speak each other is so great, from the dirty bedroom talk, to the tender moments.
And just like with book one, that overarching storyline that has layers upon layers, continues to grow. I love a major plot line in a series that grows more complex as the stories get released. I covet books like this. The anticipation for book three, Sightlines, out October 9, has now gone to defcon 1 for me.
Oversight is full of suspenseful and thrilling moments that had me on the edge of my seat, tender moments that had me swooning, and itching for more. As with book one, we are left with a bit of a cliffhanger, but not one that left me cursing. This is the kind of cliffy that left me desperate for more, yet happy with the way the two MCs end up… for now, if you get my meaning. This is a story that I really think anyone who loves suspense, thrillers, and romance would love. If you’re not typically a paranormal reader, don’t let that deter you. There are so many layers to the story. So many layers to the characters. Layers that need revealing.
There really is a lot to discuss with this one and I could talk about it for hours. I’m sure Sightlines will be equally, if not more suspenseful, heartbreaking, and amazing. Is it October yet?
The characters were also interesting. Or at least, Six was. Six is impenetrable and can't feel people's emotions in even an ordinary human way. I thought it was interesting that the author invented a disability that would affect people with psychic powers.
I felt like the romance and especially sex scenes were clichéd. For as much insight and personal reflection as he puts into the story, the romances seem less invested. There is nothing new in them at all that makes it a romance written by this author for these characters. Maybe he just didn't feel these characters' love story?
After the events recounted in the first book, Holden gets saddled with a new babysitter at his club. Six has been living on The Farm for 15 years and is an "impenetrable," meaning Holden can't get past his mental shields to manipulate him--a first for him.
This becomes a story of conspiracy, trust, betrayal, and love. I was always on edge, because I wasn't sure who to trust--always a great feeling while immersed in a mystery.
This is definitely not a standalone, and it does end in a cliffhanger. Definitely worth the read and wait for the next novel in the series!
