Not As Great As It Could Be
on 6 February 2016
*received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*
This read was okay, but it definitely left me wanting. Roman and Shay were pretty cute, but with the villain slinking around (and not doing a very enticing time of it) their romance felt a little lacking. I loved the way they came together and his secret regarding Shay and his art pieces, but that's about the highlight of their relationship for me.
The eerie presence wasn't very creepy. I was mildly wary when the black eyes appeared, but after that, it seemed dull. It wasn't as exciting as the previous installments, but since the last book was the BEST I've read so far, I can't entirely blame this story for being out-shined.
The writing was pretty good, but it was lengthy at some parts and it did a lot of 'energy' info, which took away from what creepiness I could get out of it. At times I'd find myself skimming through every other paragraph, and I don't like that so I tend to reread, which is why it took me so long to finish it. I recommend this to those who like a good suspenseful read with psychics, but because this theme was more business-like (last book starred a gardener) I personally couldn't find much interest beyond the psychic aspect and murders.
