Will her emotions be the Death of her? Empath by Becca Campbell @BeccaJCampbell
Empath (Flawed, #1) - Becca J. Campbell

I saw Becca Campbell’s influences and I found a kindred spirit, so when I was given the opportunity to read Empath, Book One, and the entire Flawed Series, I jumped all over it.

 

This will definitely be a series I finish!

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Empath by Becca Campbell hooked me from the opening pages. I was quickly drawn into Jade’s world and the characters became my friends too…most of them.

 

Jade walked into the classroom and it confirmed her reason for online classes. The feelings bombarded her…anger, attraction, excitement. She struggled to maintain a calm appearance. Were they her feelings, or someone else’s?

 

‘She believed in God…Why had he given her this FLAW?’

 

Everything changed for her when she met Logan. He calmed her.

 

Logan, is a professor at the college she was attending and he is a loner, for reasons of his own. He knew he should stay away from her, but we know how that goes. Becca Campbell’s writing drew me to him immediately. There is something special about him and I was as drawn to him as Jade was. She wondered…is he special too, is this the beginning of something wonderful for her, could she have a relationship?

 

Ethan…Becca draws a vivid picture of him in my mind. I do love a good villain and Ethan fits that picture perfectly. He is a psychopath, feels no fear and has powers of his own. He collects snakes and they are his tools of torture. Serial killers collect trophies and his are especially heinous. His thoughts and fantasies are EVIL, and they are about Jade. He MUST have her.

 

Cam, poor Cam. He has a huge crush on Jade and I wonder what will become of him. Since a snowboarding accident, he has blackouts that cause a sense of deja vu. I love that Becca describes his senses in depth…every sight, sound and smell, no matter how small.

 

Jade has more friends with unique powers of their own and they all hold a special place in her world. Why were they chosen? Maybe they weren’t FLAWS. Maybe they were gifts.

 

When Jade meets ‘Bigfoot’ I was not surprised. I expected it and had hoped it would happen. I think I know his name. Will I be right? We will have to wait and see.

 

I like how the romance is slow developing, subtle. Do you remember your first love…the butterflies in your stomach, the heat of a blush rising to the surface of your face, the excitement of even a glimpse of him/her, the teasing and playfulness of a conversation? It reads like real life and that makes the story even more believable. The triangle is not really a triangle, but Cam feels like it is.

 

I guess you can tell I fell in love with the characters. They may be young, but the danger surrounds them as they go about the normal business of life. I usually write more about the action in a novel and the characters just happen to be in the way. Not so with Empath. I am now heavily involved in their lives and will see it through to the end.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Empath by Becca Cambell.

Pleasure Dome by L.F. Hampton Review
Pleasure Dome - L. F. Hampton

Forced into retirement, Captain Soledad Scott, a former warship captain, has decided on a new career as a mother. She’s come to the Pleasure Dome where a computer-matched male will donate his sperm the old-fashioned way and make her dream of motherhood come true. But Sol’s worm-hole dyslexia sends her to Room 990 instead of Room 660.

Commander Gabriel Merriweather, half-breed Chakkra and master empath with the Diplomatic Corps, awaits his sterile playmate of the evening. When she arrives and orders him to pleasure her as if he were the paid sex toy, Gabe willingly complies. But the next day he learns that the woman isn’t a Dome employee, but a maternity client who has stolen his sperm and disappeared.

Sol can’t believe that the man she just spent the night with is the very man who destroyed her warship career. What will he do if he discovers that she’s carrying his child? Unwilling to find out, Sol decides to disappear.

But is the universe big enough to hide her from him?

 

 

Review

This book was very uneven. Parts of it were wonderful and other parts just didn't make sense at all.

 

I am a sucker for a wrong bed romance and make it a science fiction romance with a kickass heroine adjusting to retirement. Yes.

 

The hero and heroine were wonderful as the action, passion and world building.

What didn't make sense is the heroine's crazy resistance to the hero and behavior during that resistance. Just dumb and made for less falling in love time. The sister didn't make much sense either.

 

So, I will try more by this writer but I hope for better.

The Empath
The Empath - Jody Klaire A real hero is someone who undergoes great troubles without giving up.

Aeron Lorelei has been unjustly accused of a murder at sixteen, condemned by all her town people, abandoned by her family and reclused in a psychiatric institute where her treatment is prolonged over time by a dishonest, corrupt medical doctor.
Not only that. Because of her remarkable medium and telepathic powers, she is generally held up as a freak since her childhood, and later considered as an actual witch, by the nasty town gossip.

She underogoes so much trouble, pain and injustice, that she loses her own self-confidence. Of course, she is hurt, scared and angry. And yet...

And yet, deep inside, she is a generous, innocent person, unable to hate even her persecutors.
She is a wonderful, complex character, full of contrast: frail but also strong, tormented but very sweet.

The adventure begins when the new doctor in charge decides to trust her and to send her back outside the institute. Aeron returns to Oppidum, her little hostile native village, exactly when a vicious serial killer starts to kill women in the area.

By her powers, Aeron is dragged into a powerful empathic connection both with the killer and the victims. She feels in herself their terrible sufferings and she communicates with them after their death.
But of course she is also accused to be the killer by the town, arranging an actual witch hunt.
So she must investigate to solve the mistery and try to save the victims as well as herself.

A sincere new friend, a regretful father and a formidable nanny ghost will be her unexpected allies in this gripping paranormal-mistery adventure.

Romance (lesbian, of course!) is just hinted in this novel, because Aeron really isn't in the right mood for a love story nor she has any time to.
However we have the sweet beginning of a new blooming feeling, and it's really delicate.
Hopefully to be continued in a new adventure of the series...!

Overall, a very pleasant reading.

Great Story, Great Characters
Undercover Empath: Kindred Demon - RaShelle Workman

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Lola was a stripper. Her real name was Leslie. He drugged her and took her from the strip club. The demon knew she'd only been in the area a short time. Demons had all the wrong wicked desires humans did, but without a body they couldn't act on them. Rose Hansen was a detective at the age of 19. Jack was her ex-boyfriend and partner. She lost her mom during her formative years. A man knocked on her door, no shoes or shirt, had a manilla envelope for her, and told her he knew she needed to know who murdered her parents.
Rose was very very naive in a lot of ways, but a very dedicated person. She could be determined. She didn't really have anybody there for her. She grew through the twists and turns of this story.
I loved the characters, story and plot, but the story finished way too soon. I truly hope this story is continued in another book. I would definitely read it. I highly recommend to anyone that likes this genre.

New Short Story in the Flawed Series: Constricted by @BeccaJCampbell
Constricted: A Flawed Short Story - Becca J. Campbell,Jessie Sanders
A Short Story Companion to the Flawed Series
 

Today is the release for Constricted, a brand new short story related to Becca J. Campbell’s Flawed series. This story coincides with the events in Empath (Flawed #1), and takes place in Logan’s point of view. You’ll need to read Empath first to thoroughly enjoy this story.

 

If you haven’t already, download a free copy of Empath (links below). Read on to find out more about Constricted.

 

Constricted (A Flawed Short Story)

 

Constricted_CVR_SML

Add to Goodreads now.

 

Logan’s secret has been exposed. When Jade—a beautiful student at the college where he teaches—discovered the truth, he spilled the whole repulsive story. Jade’s empathetic kindness flooded him with emotions he didn’t know he had and isn’t sure he wants to deal with.

 

It would be the easiest thing in the world to leave and let Jade be a whisper in his past. He can exit now and regain his anonymity, or he can risk everything to stay and face her again.

 

It’s not an easy choice, and when he’s about to decide, a woman from his past shows up, making his decision even more difficult.

 

What really happened when Logan disappeared during Empath? Find out in this short story companion piece to Flawed #1.

 

MY REVIEW of Constricted by Becca J Campbell

 

Logan is a loner for some good reasons. He feels claustrophobic when he is surrounded my people. His problem with excess hair is easily dealt with by frequent shaving and haircuts. But, Jade, knew the whole truth and he couldn’t stop thinking about her.

 

His idea of camping now includes water and electricity – mine includes a pool and room service. LOL

 

Sometimes, Logan’s personality bothers me. He can seem kinda wimpy. One minute I have empathy for him, the next I want to smack him upside the head and tell him to man up. :-)

 

Jade is the girl you would love to have for a best friend. But, Becca added an element, the rich bitch, that makes me want to read the rest of the series even more than I did before. I am very interested in the additional “love interest” that is sure to mess up Logan’s life even more.

 

I received Constricted from Becca J Campbell in return for an honest review.

Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.

 

Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.

 

When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.

Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.

 

Empath is now FREE on most sales channels.
