Read the summary and add this book on Goodreads: here
My new book crush, Victor Bayne, is having problems with his ability. His powers seem amplified and ghosts appear to be more solid, can move from where they died and they are trying to grab him. Victor is troubled. He is scared. His house, his safe haven, is compromised, too. He sees faces when he turns on the tv and he is scratching Jacob without realizing it. He can’t catch a break. Poor Vic!
I was still too fixated on Jacob to really give a damn if Roger Burke slept with men, women, or inflatable farm animals, for that matter.
Victor has a new partner, Roger, kind of bland, but he buys him expensive coffee from Starbucks every single day so he’s not really complaining. Lisa is still at PsyTrain and she is always unreachable but the few times she leaves Victor or Jacob a message is cryptic and ominous and with all that’s happening with his abilities, the situation is getting out of hand.
One scary episode of ghosts trying to grab Victor ends in him being told his liver is a mess, that he has to start eating healthy and that he has to stop taking his beloved Auracel, the only pills that keep the ghosts at bay. Carolyn takes him to Crash, Jacob’s ex-boyfriend, who is an empathic healer to see if he can help Victor get rid of the dead making his life hell. Let me tell you, Crash is a peculiar character and I still don’t know if I like him or not. He dared doubting Vic’s abilities and I was fuming, I was so angry!!
Did straight guys eat salads? Maurice never had one unless his wife made it. That was about the extent of my knowledge of the eating habits of the heterosexual world.
There are many things happening that lead you to make a few guesses as to what the hell is happening and then it all falls into place; flashbacks appear in my mind and I think “well of course, I should’ve seen it coming” and I got mad and I wanted my Victor to be happy. I wanted Vic to be able to sleep with Jacob without scratches incidents and I wanted him to get home to a place without ghosts bothering him.
I wondered if that was something like being ambidextrous, the ability to speak and write at the same time. I’m lucky I can walk and breathe simultaneously without choking.
I think I won’t be able to stop reading this series now that I have started and I know it’s not finished yet, that after the Crash’s prequel book there’s going to be a final book with I hope a perfect ending for my Victor. I will fight whoever wants to harm him, I swear!
