    Description

    A psychic without an anchor. A student in trouble. A shooter on the loose.

    I’m Jonathan Bane, a licensed psychic who consults for the police. I routinely help the police put the bad guys away and, for that reason, the criminal world doesn’t like me much. People like to take a swing at me, or go stabbity, or try for a gun. It makes for interesting times. My psychic ability prevents me from handling anything electronic - and I do mean anything, I fry it in seconds - so calling for help isn’t always a possibility. 

    I need an anchor, a partner, but I’m resigned: It’s just wishful thinking.

    At least, I thought so until he walked through the door.

    Donovan Havili looks like a thug and has the soul of a superhero. He shines so bright in my vision it’s like watching a supernova. He definitely has the right mindset and skills for this crazy job. But asking anyone to take me on long-term is a bit much. And now we’ve got multiple cases to handle, a Chinese exchange student falsely accused who needs our help, and someone taking random shots at me. It’s a bit much for any new guy to handle and I’m half-afraid that my new partner will run for the door.

    But in Donovan Havili, the criminal world has met its match. And maybe, just maybe, I have as well.

    Trigger warnings: Your average cop show violence and criminals

    Really good

    This book was really enjoyable. No angst. Cute love story. Twisty mystery. Hot sexy times. Great narration.

    Great start to a series!

    Jon is an amicable psychic who consults with the police and helps catch bad guys, sometimes putting his life in danger in the process. Add to that the fact that he has a lot of criminal enemies and oh yeah he can’t come into contact with anything electronic or he will fry it. Living his life is already complicated, but dating? Not in his cards. Donovan is a gentle, kind, and patient human with a protective instinct that could rival a mama bear but with and intimidating figure and face that have people judging the book by its cover all too often. Jon and Donovan’s world is very interesting with a varying cast of background characters and psychic powers that I can easily see myself wanting to read more about as the series continues. Kenneth Obi was a little different than what I’m used to hearing and it took a little bit for me to get used to his voices but once I did I greatly enjoyed his narration and the distinct voices he gave each character. I could tell who was speaking just by the voice he gave them, his pacing, and emphasis were right on point There were really only 2 issues I had with the book and with the exception of the 1st one the other two were not as pressing. It got a little weird with race. I understand that one of Jon’s abilities is that he can lay a person bare and see into their psyche and apparently that extends to race as well? Jon makes a point of stating this but then never brings it up again. The only two characters that are really good with computers turn out to be Asian. I like that the author tried adding more variety to her characters but fell into some predictable stereotypes.

    like fingernails down a chalkboard

    this is actually a fun book if you read it rather than listen to it. when I heard the short sample I wondered why the characters were done with a deeply Southern twang but having already read the book, i purchased it anyway. BIG MISTAKE. After 30 minutes of the worst Southern drawl i think I've ever heard (and I'm from Virginia where accents vary from DC nonaccents to deep piedmont Southern twang) I felt like I'd rather have needles in my eyes than listen to one minute more. I'd return this in a heartbeat if Audible would let ne!

    Great Series Starter

    I'd had this book in my TBR for a while, but when I saw Kenneth Obi did the narration, I decided it was time to check it out.  I am so glad I did!  This story is fantastic.  Jon is a psychic who destroys any electronics that get too close to him.  Donovan is a former military man with a difficult past, but who's aura shines with goodness.  They get paired up to help the police solve a mysterious shooting case.  The case has enough twists to keep it interesting, while allowing it to not take overshadow Jon and Donovan's relationship.  This is a great series start.  I'd love to see the next books in audio, too.  Kenneth Obi is a go to narrator for me.  He does a great job with Jon's accent and he keeps each character distinctive enough to easily follow along.

    Detectives with a twist

    Not your average investigation story. Jon has a gift which allows him to act like a human lie detector, he needs an anchor but is hesitant due to family drama. In comes Donovan and sparks fly and maybe a few bullets, connections are made, whether Jon was ready or not. Great start to the series. I look forward to more.

    Narrator made this EPIC

    i love this book and have read it a dozen times at least. its funny, sweet, and fantastically interesting. i have to say though, kenneth obi made this story EPIC. the accent was amazing even if it sort of went texas sometimes instead of Tennessee. his inflections flowed so well it was all dazzling. loved this audio book like crazy. really wish it was the same narrator for the second book. i listened to the sample and it reminded me of an old noir chain smoking detective. no thanks. hooe this guy is it for the 3rd so bad!!!!!!

    Fabulous

    I originally listened to this a couple of months ago and then shortly thereafter the narrator passed away suddenly while working on book 2. Kenneth Obi did such a great job bringing Jon and Donovan to life. AJ Sherwood writes such wonderful characters and her books are a lot of fun. If you like crazy mysteries with a touch of the supernatural (psychics) do yourself a favor and get these books! So good!

    Psychic shenanigans

    Honestly, I just really, really love that there is a full novel about a badass gay psychic working with police. I love the concept of psychic abilities, because it just opens up this whole world of possibilities, and gay lovestories are always a plus. Jon is adorable, but so is Donovan, and honestly pretty much every other charater we encounter in this book. I love that there's practically no evil characters, and I also love that this story doesn't ignore real world issues. The characters are all well written and diverse, another plus, and their actions make sense. I really like this one. It's well read, listening is relatively easy, although it took a while for me to get comfortable with the accent (I seldom hear that for the full lenght of an audiobook). I love this, and I wish there were more than two parts to it to listen to. I am very glad there are those two parts, though! Thank you all for that!
