Overview

Jade loves her new apartment— until a ghost joins her in the shower.

When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.

Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade, to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help—and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own—to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

    I thought the book was good overall. However I kept getting frus

    I thought the book was good overall. However I kept getting frustrated with how the author does not describe the characters or Jade's surroundings. I still have no clue what the other characters look like which makes it hard to get a mental picture. I even went back to the beginning of the book to see if i accidentally skipped over her describing how Kane looked. Also, this may seem dumb but when she gets furniture for her apartment the author doesn't describe what it looks like, or how her apartment is decorated, so you don't get a real image of what Jade's surroundings look like. Maybe I'm being picky but I like being able to picture the characters' surrounding and the other characters in the novel. It helps me connect with the characters and feel like I've been transported into the book watching their lives. If the author would have been more descriptive I would have easily given this book another star.

    I really enjoyed this book, had a hard time putting it down. It had just enough romance, unlike some books, where the sex parts make up the entire book. I will read the next one in the series for sure.

    I was surprised it was as good as it was. It had suspense and interesting characters and enough sex to keep me reading lol. At the end I was left wondering about the other characters lives. I like that although its supernatural it's not exaggerated and it felt down to earth. Very much enjoyed it and I would have paid to read it. I can tell you it's much better then a lot of harlequin novels lol.

    Good read

    Good and interesting for a free read. Characters blend well together and the plot developed quickly and efficiently. The only thing it lacked was a better description of the characters, always good to have a mental picture of what they look like and that doesn't really come across. The paranormal aspect was very interesting, a bit scary and very descriptive. You get a very good feel for it...

    Disappointed!

    I read a lot of pretty good reviews for this book but found myself disappointed. The character descriptions were weak...never got very attached to any of the people, even the main character. I think the plot could have had some twists and turns (I was hoping for at least one or two) but was lacking there also. Waste of time and a very mediocre story!

    I had high hopes for this book based on all the positive reviews

    I had high hopes for this book based on all the positive reviews, but I just could *not* get into it. I found the pacing to be slow, and the characters were not very engaging. I also found myself rolling my eyes at the immediate attraction between Kane and Jade -- look, yet another book in which the super hot and sexy guy immediately falls in love with our heroine! I stopped reading after about a hundred pages. I might pick it up again to see how it ends. Maybe. -- lyradora

    3 & 1/2 Stars

    I'm glad I didn't let the negative reviews disuade me. Although this isn't the end all be all I liked the story...a decent portion of it anyway.
    The Good...At no point did I consider not finishing it. It was engaging yet I can't really put my finger on why. Ok...I guess that may not help you if you're looking for a reason to read this. Trying again...It was the story. I've never read books about aura reading etc...(don't want to give too much away). I also thought it was nifty to have the story set in a strip club in New Orleans. Btw...the name of the strip club is a hoot and it's a little disappointing that there aren't more of those little humor nuggets like that in the story. Side Note...if your looking for a great N.O. book you should try Kresley Cole and her Immortals After Dark series. In fact I would'nt be surprised if another reviewer hasn't mentioned it already...that's how much you can feel N.O. in her series. Give book 5 a try, Conrad and Neomi's story.
    The Bad...The characters, including the leads, Kane and Jade felt incomplete. It could be because the story is told through Jade's eyes only leaving you with her direct experiences and not much else. This is a mistep on the author's part and I could easily see liking this more if only she spent time with providing a little extra to give you a clearer picture of everything (especially the people).
    I gotta say...it was very smart making this a free book. You get a little taste and the story is just decent enough to leave you wondering what's going to happen next...and because it's a series and you know there is more to the story out there you can't help but want another nibble.
