After being made a scapegoat in a botched investigation that led to a child’s death, Aidan McConnell became a recluse. Still, as a favor to an old friend, Aidan will help on the occasional XI case. But under his handsome, rugged facade, he keeps his emotions in check–for fear of being burned again.
Reporter Lexie Nolan has a nose for news–and she believes a serial killer has been targeting teen girls around Savannah. But no one believes her. So she turns to the new paranormal detective agency and the sexy, mysterious Aidan for help.
But just as the two begin forging a relationship, the case turns eerily personal for Lexie–and Aidan discovers that maybe he hasn’t lost the ability to feel after all…
This was a hot hot story. There wasn’t instalove, but there was instalust, done in a very tension-filled, steamy way. Instalust I can believe in, and appreciate.
The storyline itself moved quite fast. The whole story takes place in less than a week. But the story doesn’t seem rushed. It struck a good balance. And speaking of the story, it was quite the mystery. Twists and turns sprinkled with horrorific moment that were on just the right side of graphic.
Overall, this was an exciting start to a new series that features that very cool paranormal talent. Each book centres on one of the investigators, and I can’t wait to see who is next.
