Two psychics – one serial killer.
Someone is stalking women and murdering them in Key West.
Levi Wolfe and Trudy Tucker join forces to help identify the murderer and stop him. Levi can channel the deceased victims and Trudy can tap into the mind of the killer. As a psychic detective team, they’re formidable. As lovers, they discover that they’re insatiable.
But if Trudy can see through the killer’s eyes, can the killer see her?
“And he did kiss me good night. On the cheek,” Trudy added quickly when she saw the fury in his eyes. She brushed a finger against the right side of her face. “Right here.”
“Right where, exactly?” Levi stepped closer so that she had to tip back her head to see his face. He was suddenly so solemn!
“Here.” She touched her fingers to the spot.
“I’m going to erase that kiss,” he stated.
“What?” she asked, looking up into his face and laughing nervously. Oh. He wasn’t kidding!
“I’m going to obliterate it.”
Her mouth went dry and she couldn’t have moved if a bomb went off right beside her. Passion uncoiled in her belly and spread down to between her thighs as he dipped his head and his lips hovered above the spot on her cheek.
“Did you say... right here?”
“Yes.” She could barely make a sound, her heart thundered and her knees suddenly began shaking.
His lips touched her cheek with feather lightness. The tip of his tongue wet the spot and then he sucked gently before his mouth lifted. “All gone,” he whispered against her fevered skin. But he wasn’t finished. His lips found the spot again and then slipped sideways until they covered hers. She moaned and brought her hands up to clutch his forearms, using his strength to keep her upright as his kiss flamed from longing to voracious in the space of a breath.
I was intrigued by the premise of this book. Most of the time, books with a psychic and a criminal/serial killer are told from some sort of law enforcement view point. That was not the case in this book. In this book, we have two psychics working with each other, but not necessarily with the tactic approval of law enforcement.
The romance portion had much more realism than many romances. Levi clearly had a 'player' history and Trudy was trying to keep her heart from being broken. Watching her turn the tables on him, gave a few snicker worthy scenes. The smexy scenes were hot, but not quite into the realm of erotica. This is a relationship in progress and is not resolved at the close of the book.
For the suspense portion, I did figure out the who before Trudy and Levi. The clues were pretty good and didn't completely spell things out. Getting into the mind of the killer was quite creepy and added another dimension to the story.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and can see myself reading the next book, Through His Touch. Both Trudy and Levi still have plenty of obstacles to overcome for a true relationship, plus the dual psychic angle adds a unique twist. 3 stars.
