Welcome back to another work week. Hopefully I can ease it with a great book by Susan Griscom. A Gypsy’s Kiss brings a secret world of people born with powers beyond the norm into the real world. This is a sexy paranormal with lots of romance and steamy scenes. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Have a great week filled with fun stories!
Cursed with what could be one of the worst supernatural abilities imaginable, Breena has never had the luxury of falling in love. Hell, she’s never even held a guy’s hand. At only twenty-two years old, she’s just about given up on the whole love thing. After all, when you can see twelve hours of someone’s future by a simple touch, and they, in turn, can see what you see, well… relationships are sort of out of the question. Her gigs performing psychic readings at parties, and the occasional one-on-one private appointment are just about Breena’s only connection with people. No matter how much she might wish otherwise.
Hawk’s hard body and skill have earned him a starting position on the Pioneer’s college hockey team. But it’s not his talent with a hockey stick that’s the most remarkable. His gorgeous two-colored eyes not only draw the attention of every female on campus, they also allow him to track people and objects. But when he suddenly finds himself stalked by a stranger, he seeks out the help of the rumored, “campus gypsy” for help.
Despite his vow to stay single and play as many college women as he can while the fun lasts, Hawk can’t ignore his attraction to the lovely and spirited Breena. And she can’t get the hunky star hockey player out of her mind once a single touch of his hand reveals something utterly strange. Surrounded by mystery, they realize that fate has brought them together for a reason, but can they stay alive long enough to recognize the depth of their feelings for one another?
Breena feels she is cursed. Whenever she touches someone she sees their future and they immediately see what she sees. That is until Hawk walks into the room where she was doing fortune-telling. When she touched him she saw nothing. Soon she realizes that he is like her and has abilities. Hawk came to see Breena to see if she could help him with who he thinks is following him. When she can’t help him she thinks she won’t see him again even though they have serious sparks. Breena is wrong there. The two of them can’t seem to stay away from each other. But as secrets about Hawk’s past come out they are drawn even closer. Can the two of them figure out who is hunting them and get past the hurts in their past?
I adored this story. It sucked me in from the first page. Breena and Hawk’s immediate attraction is quite enthralling. You really feel the draw between them. As you learn more about the character’s you are drawn further and further into the hidden world. The intrigue of the people hunting them down adds a level to the story that makes you want to know more and know more right now. Susan Griscom’s fantastic character building and story telling stands out among authors in the same genre. I can’t wait to get my hands on another of her books.
