This book started out slow and I felt it was too detail orientated and normally I would deduct a star for it, but after further reading I just couldn't do that. This book is amazing and it had everything a great paranormal book should have: Romance, Suspense, Evil Spirits and a Great Story. This book pulled me in and caused me to lose sleep because I couldn't stop reading. I had to know what was going to happen. It gave me chills and I loved every minute of it. Don't let the details bog you down, because if you do; you will miss out on an amazing book. Definitely a five star read.
Olivia Emerson is a young clairvoyant that has been investigating haunting for a few years now. Only problem is that she's been doing it on a volunteer basis. Not getting anywhere financially, she has been supporting herself waiting tables in hopes that she will one day hit it big in the world of ghost hunting.
She seizes the opportunity, cleans almost all her savings out in order to work with the famous Sullivan Wilde. They have been called to Newfoundland to investigate a haunting in Port Aux Basque. All they know is that there is some evil and dark entity that is haunting a small private island and the owner needs this ghost gone before he loses everything he has invested.
With Sullivan Wilde, he has a chip on his shoulder. He doesn't believe that people can talk to ghosts. He has refused to work with any sort of clairvoyant due to them all being charlatans. However, this time he doesn't have a choice. The client has demanded to have the best clairvoyant on this case irregardless of how Sullivan feels.
From the first meeting, Olivia and Sullivan start to butt heads. He has an arrogant attitude about him. She doesn't trust men. So the two of them are destined nothing but trouble. Olivia is trying her best to get along with Sullivan, but with his stubbornness, sharp tongue, and ill temper, she has to learn to stand her ground to this beautiful man.
Sullivan has issues from the first time he laid eyes on Olivia. First, she appears to be really young. He swore she looked 15. Secondly, she is the most beautiful looking thing he ever saw. However, it's her capabilities as a psychic medium that make him detest her even more. Plus, this woman has sas. She isn't taking his crap that he's dishing out...she's slinging it right back in his face...very attractive!
It's when they get to the remote island and dropped off in the dead of a winter blizzard, do the two discover that what they are about to face is pure evil. They will have to either learn to set their differences aside and work together or someone will get hurt. With a ghost that is pure evil, capable of physically harming humans, the extreme cold temperatures and ego's getting in the way, will this highly dysfunctional pair be able to survive what is ahead of them?
I don't understand why I do this to myself, but I love to read paranormal book but will refuse to watch a scary movie. With this book, it scared the crap out of me! I made the mistake of reading it at night. I did fine until they hit the island. Granted this book is mild in comparison to some of the horror novels I read, I still got scared. I had nightmares galore and wasn't able to go back to sleep.
I did find myself getting irritated with how Sullivan was acting. I just wanted to reach up and slap him for his behavior towards Olivia. With his constant insults and not believing in what she was capable of doing, I so hated him. I can see how she was attracted to this beautiful man, but sometimes it's the attitude that makes them ugly.
There was a couple of issues I had with the book. One was how the story jumped so fast towards the end. Not to give away the ending, but it was like the story just hit a wall and stopped in regards to the evil ghost. Also, I realize that there is some issues with Sullivan that Olivia and I both were questioning, but I am only assuming that these will be addressed in the second installment, "His Wounded Rose," which I'm starting ASAP.
Other than these two minor glitches, I did enjoy this book. It does have enough horror aspect to it to scare me. Plus enough romance to please any romance fan. My only suggestion is, if you do get spooked slightly, then this might not be good night-time reading!
Olivia and Sullivan confronts not only that spirit, but others as well. They are forced to work as a team and get to know each other as they do. Sullivan is forced to confront his feelings about psychics after watching Olivia in action and realizing she really does have a gift.
Lisagh J. Walters is a new to me writer. It took a little bit of time to get used to her writing style. At times it is a little choppy and the switching back and forth from Sullivan to Olivia’s pov can get confusing. It is definitely a good read if you like paranormal, which I do. I can’t wait to start with the second one.
I was given a copy for an honest review.
