My name is Sidney Rinn. Growing up in an orphanage without parents and not knowing where you come from is hard, especially when you have a gift like mine. I’m a seer. I can see the past in any location I enter.
Sometimes I see ghosts but mostly what I see is an instant replay of whatever event played out there. If it was important or traumatic to the person at the time then it’s important to me, otherwise, I wouldn’t see it. No, I’m not psychic nor do I claim to be. I’m just your average girl with an above-average talent.
Unfortunately, that talent had me seeing a murder I was never meant to see, which in turn, led me two of the sexiest men on the planet – Det. Denton Archer and PI Mitchell Caldwell. When Denton asked for my help on the case, I jumped in with both feet not realizing that that decision would change everything.
Now, I’m in love with both men and the killer is after me. Can my life get any more complicated?
Sidney Rinn is fresh out of the orphanage raised by Catholic nuns and destined for college at the Delaware University of Parapsychology. Sidney is a Seer of ghosts stuck in the past in a perpetual loop of their environment. After becoming friends with her bossy red-headed friend Lily, Sidney discovers boys, sex, and how to control her psychic abilities (not in that order). While visiting Lily’s family on holiday, Sidney sees a recently past murder (her seer abilities) that makes her witness to a crime and destines her to meet with the very hot Detective Denton Archer with whom she becomes involved. However, her good deed as a witness puts her in danger which again destines her to literally bump into the sexy Private Investigator and former Navy Seal Mitch Caldwell who becomes her paid bodyguard in more ways than one. Quick work in two years finding two hotties just out of a Catholic orphanage, huh? But her life is in danger and who will save her from the bad guys?
Okay. I have to admit I personally don’t like Sidney. She is immature and jumps into relationships as quickly as she jumps into the shower. I think I would like this story better if she were a bit older because although I think Denton and Mitch are hot and all, it’s a bit creepy how they have no problem having sex with this girl after only knowing her a few days. I know. It can happen…but with two guys in that short amount of time. I don’t see it. At one time Denton even calls her promiscuous which she gets pissed off about. Well, if the shoe fits… Case in point, she was sleeping with a college boy before she met Denton. One other thing I can’t connect is how Sidney quickly conforms to a social life she has never even seen after growing up in an orphanage all her life.
Overall, this is an okay paranormal romance. I enjoyed the paranormal part of it that is unique and exciting and wish there was more of it, but Sidney and the romance part…meh.
Thank you to Ms. Daye for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.
