"Tough Karma - A Race Against Time took my preconceived idea and previous experience of Paranormal Romance, rolled it into a tight little ball and slam dunked it in the bin of 'old experiences'. There was no sign of the usual werewolves or vampires, nor was there cuteness of fairy's or the fire breath and scale hides of dragons. Instead, upon turning each page, I was opened to a whole new world of paranormal romance story concept and telling.The author expertly brought the characters of Amber and Bryce to life. So much so I felt myself dabbing away tears for fear of mocking from my partner that I would do something as 'mushy' as cry at a story in a book, and a Paranormal Romance one at that. But that is exactly what I did on a few occasions as I read the exceptional story of Amber's loss, not just of her husband but her child too.Bryce's character was caring, thoughtful and pretty much what we would expect the love interest to be in this genre. He was what Amber needed to get her through the tough times and emotional turmoil. With this love story, I could quite happily have walked away and not felt cheated, but when the paranormal aspect of astral projection was introduced the story took on a frightening new edge, a darker tone, and a frightening direction. The antagonist was exactly what every Paranormal Romance bad guy should be. He was handsome, charming, cunning, devious, and deliciously dangerous.All this added to the perfect storm of love, loss and the paranormal one would want and expect from this genre.This story was executed well, the characters were lavishly developed and the tone/mood what would be expected and more from a good read in the paranormal romance universe. " The International Review of Books
I am impressed that Author Laura Simmons takes the time in the beginning of this book to educate her reader on the definition and description of astral projection (astral travel), telekinesis and clairvoyance. If you have an open mind and believe the human brain is capable of so much more than our normal everyday functions. Even though I didn't read the authors Karma Series Prequel Titled Little Bits of Karma before this book. The author explained enough for me to know that her main character Amber Conner's life was filled with normalcy rocked by unimaginable grief. If you just can't enough Paranormal Romance, this thriller should be your next read. I enjoyed this book and will turn my attention to Dark Karma: Sword of Vengeance which is book two in Laura Simmons Karma Series.

💢There’s Good, Excellent, Dynamite and there is Absolutely Phenomenal!!
Question for You; Do you believe that before you were born you pick your parents and make a roadmap of your life of course with Free Will it could go either way?
🔥Astral projection or astral travel is an out-of-body experience (OBE) where you temporarily leave your physical body and roam other planes of existence, or other dimensions.
🔹️Amber Conner Macklin has lost everything her husband, her baby, her will to live. What she does have is a man that loves her forever till the end of time. Can he save her from Herself? And a Killer?
🔹Bryce Decker is Amber’s cousin, since day one Bryce has had to hide his feelings from her, they were related. All his life he had a OBE but now he was testing the waters because things just didn’t look right to him. Little did he know the results he would find were amazing and scary as hell.
☄️This is one book that should have 10 Times the Five Stars I gave it. The Author takes you on a journey to the past and the present! You feel everything that these character feel, it’s as if you are there.
Then there’s Bryce’s old friend Mike, who turns out to be a lot deeper and darker than Bryce knew. Unfortunately, Amber is his current target.
Add Bryce’s brother Luke, some paranormal abilities like astral travel and psychokinesis and we have a most engaging story that will keep you hooked until the end – and beyond, since there are several loose ends that need to be tied up. Stay tuned for the next installment!
Amber is still reeling with shock over the loss of her baby daughter (Belle)that morning so arrangements are made for her to stay with cousin Bryce who can keep an eye on her. Bryce has loved Amber as more than a cousin for more than half of his life. This is really their story but there is someone else with insane evil intentions that will stop at nothing to own her.... Mike and Bryce know each other from college but lately something just feels off about Mike... (Oh Yeah Baby, Mike sure does have secrets) and I thought he was going to go nuclear when he learned that Bryce and Amber weren't really related!
Well, you know what they say..."be careful who you trust, even the devil was once an Angel "
I could not put this down. I was so captivated by Bryce's talents and Amber's abilities. The large cast of characters are all very well developed. I was emotionally invested and felt like I was right there. If your a believer of this kind of phenomenon, this is the saga to read!
This is the second book in the series, and although I didn’t read the first one, I have a gist of what happened before this book. When it opens, we meet Amber who is going through a tough time in her life. She decides to move in with her cousin for support, and it’s soon after this that Amber’s world begins to change. There’s something different about one of Bryce’s friends, something dangerous.
The mix of paranormal and thriller made this a definite page turner. There are things such as astral projection among other paranormal phenomenon. As already mentioned, not a type of book I come across often, but this book really opened me up to the genre.

This is a great read, well written and fast paced. The characters both good and bad are believable and well developed. It was refreshing to see a different take on the paranormal romance with astral travel and seeing beyond what the eye normally sees.
I really enjoyed that the past parts of the story were written in italics, no misunderstanding what was happening here and it made it so clear.
Astral flying, wow, can people really do that or is it only in stories? So interested I think I need to research it.
Amber's story starts off so sad, then gets happy, then gets a whole lot scary, gosh really felt for her what a lot of things to go through. Luckily, she has wonderful Bryce watching her back and taking care of her.
Interesting story, fast moving, easy to read and a page turner.
Either way, I have already bought Dark Karma, the next book. That should say it all.
