An empath was kidnapped, Oliver being an empath felt him die. Oliver turned to Zoe for comfort while searching for the kidnappers before they struck again. Would she accept him?
The book was well written, an easy flow. The characters were entertaining and believable. It wasn’t action packed but it did not need to be because it definitely had me wanting more. When there was action it definitely was explosive. The romance that was between Oliver and Zoe was just as explosive. Warning there is a cliff hanger, I am not one to be crazy about these however the book was very enjoyable that I would definitely pick up book two to find out what happens.
