Adelaide is an empath who was forced by her mother to use pills and therapy to control her ability. She left home at 18, broke off all contact with her family and moved to a small island where she works as a receptionist of a small hotel. Her gift has made it difficult for her to socialise with others. She is unexpectedly pursued by the charismatic and wealthy Reed Wallace, but he has a hidden agenda. She is very attracted to her taciturn neighbour Lucas who appears to finds socialising just as difficult as she does.

Adelaide has to pretend to be Reed’s girlfriend but then has to fend off his jealous secretary and his business rival’s violent cronies. I loved the author’s prose and at times I laughed aloud especially when Adelaide yells at a ghost to prevent him from pointing to letters on the Ouija board as he has to work though her: the medium and not spoil her fun! I hope there’ll be a sequel to this novel as the author has left some unanswered questions: what exactly will Adelaide do with the demon book; is Reed romantically interested in her at all or was he just using her and why can’t she sense Lucas’ emotions?

liked the book a lot! Do have some gripes though... one major gripe, one middlin gripe and one weasley little gripe.

First, though, I'd say this author really has a talent & I got very involved in the world as presented. Especially the idea that an empath would rather avoid people than be lovey-dovey & understanding.

Major gripe -- the story just stops! Right in the middle of everything it just STOPS! This is not nice. I've read many, many serials, trilogies, etc. and this is just not the same thing. I was left feeling kind of ripped off emotionally. Why not clearly label a work as a
cliff-hanger" if that's what it is?

Second, middlin' gripe: All of a sudden the heroine jumps into the back of the truck belonging to this crazy, dangerous, torturing bad-guy -- even though all the previous story was built on how scared (with good reason) she was of him. Duh? very psychologically unlikely!

Tiney little gripe... in one passage the heroine realizes something and this is portrayed as having "donned" on her. Mispelling is rampant on the internet & I do a lot myself when it just seems too much trouble to correct it... This, though looks like a major flaw in understanding. the term is "dawned" -- as in the morning sun rising to illuminate something that was previously dark & hard to see.

I am left wondering wth is don, and why is he interested in "donning" on people.

I really did like the story, but I don't think I will read another by this author. I very much disliked the way it simply quit... no closure, no nothing...

Amazing book! I couldn't put it is definitely on a par with any of the current bestseller urban fantasy types, like Kim Harrison's Books of the Hollows and the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse novels & rivaling the Harper Connelly series, also by Harris. I don't have much money for books, so I was thrilled that this novel was free, but having read it, I feel a bit guilty for not was that good. Adelaide was amazing as a quirky heroine, but completely herself--not an amalgem of other author's heroines. I cannot WAIT for the next installment!!!
