Samantha Bevans is having the best sex of her life—but it’s not with her husband. Fortunately for her marriage, the affair is all in her mind. Isn’t it? As an empath, she senses other people’s emotions. But her connection to the man with the the chiseled face and haunting eyes seems so real.

There’s no time for fantasies with a serial killer loose in Pittsburgh. The killer is targeting dancers at a strip club where Samantha used to bartend, back when drugs were the only cure for the torment of her abilities. As a member of a special task force, Samantha uses her talents to sense the victims’ final thoughts. Just when she thought the case was complex enough, she discovers one of the victims was thinking about her fantasy man when she died.

Who can Samantha trust when she can’t trust her own mind? An empath feels the emotional environment around her…and Samantha is surrounded by death.

First sentence…
“I’m having an affair,” I blurted out, causing Dr. Gray to sit forward in her seat.

Sam is an empath who uses her special skills to help find the bad guys at a crime scene. She’s happily married with her husband Nixon who just so happens to be a void. When he is around, she doesn’t have to fit so hard blocking out everything around her. However, little by little these fantasies of another man keep popping in her head. There’s no harm in a little fantasy but pretty soon these fantasies are making her question those around her. It isn’t until the leading man in her fantasies walks through the door that she starts to question if the life she’s been living is real or if the fantasies are real.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of the author and her writing style. She writes as if she’s recalling something that happened as apposed to coming up with a story. The characters seem real and aren’t mechanical in their actions or speech. Their brain to mouth filter is absent sometimes and their actions aren’t always the smartest choice but that is what makes them human.

Sam was a very difficult character for me. I liked her up until she started getting flippant when in regards to Nixon’s feelings. I guess I just have a very strong opinion when it comes to cheating and no matter the circumstances I sort of take a step back from the character when it happens.

I really enjoyed this story. I found myself flipping page after page to see what happened next. Even though this story is more of a set up of things to come since the majority of the book is pretty much Sam getting her memories back, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
