When the ghost of her best friend begs for her help, psychic detective Denieve Knight goes undercover as a live-in domestic to catch a killer. She sets her sights on the most likely suspect: her friend’s mysterious employer, Doctor Braeden Frost.
Dubbed "Dr. Death" by the press, the notorious hematologist is linked to nineteen other suspicious fatalities—all are former patients. The brooding recluse is a man of many secrets, the darkest of which may be lurking beneath the leather gloves he never removes.
My Review: (ARC provided)
This book took will take you on a crazy journey. I don't typical read a lot of paranormal and then when I do, I always ask myself why I don't read more. There is a different type of twist in the book that really takes you by surprise (in a good way). I absolutely cannot go into the twist without spoiling anything.
What do you do as a psychic when your best friend’s ghost is haunting you telling you to help the one person that is a prime suspect in her death? Well Denieve or "Danielle" does just that, she decides to get a job for the mysterious Braeden Frost "Dr. Death" and find out about the deaths he's been said to cause. While Denieve has no problem reading people or figuring them out Braeden is proving to be a mystery. Then to top it off Braeden's mysterious twin (Xavier) enters the picture. He is sexy but a complete a**hole and doesn't want Denieve around. Braeden is more of a recluse, kind of quiet and closed off whereas Xavier is just cocky and mean. He wants nothing to do with Denieve and doesn't want her around.
After one crazy storm everything changes and Denieve can't understand the pull she has for both of these men. Will she be able to uncover the truth?
Like I said this isn't something I typically read but I found that I really enjoyed it. The beginning started a little slow for me but at about twenty percent in it picked up and I couldn't put it down. This book has a little of everything...paranormal/gothic romance, suspense and some pretty steamy scenes. And how can you go wrong with two hot mysterious twins? There is a bit of a love triangle but let me say if you tend to veer away from them it's not a typical one.
This is a unique story that I feel every reader should give a chance, even if it's not a genre you're used to reading try it out I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
