Murder House (PsyCop #10)
Murder House (PsyCop #10) - Jordan Castillo Price

Vic goes undercover and it goes about as well as you'd expect, lol.

 

I love seeing Vic continue to expand his horizons. Moving to FPMP might have freaked him out initially, but it's been such a positive place for him and he's able to see and learn new things about himself as a result. And here he decides a course of action regarding his mysteriously redacted past that he hopes will protect Jacob. Vic being so protective about Jacob and his career is touching.

 

We also get to learn a lot more about Agent Bly, and as another reviewer said, I hope we get at least a short story about him at some point. He's such an interesting character and his background is much more complex than he originally let on.

 

Now, in the previous book, some reviewers complained about

the lack of romance and Jacob not being in the story enough. I suspect there may be similar complaints about this one. Since Vic's undercover, that means no contact with anyone from his normal life. For me, I think this series surpassed Romance(™) a long time ago, and is instead a paranormal series with romantic elements. But more importantly, the forced separation caused Vic to take stock about his relationship with Jacob and all the reasons he loves the big lug and how much knowing him has changed Vic's life for the better. It was really somewhat sappy and incredibly sweet, and it made their few interactions that much more intense.

(spoiler show)

 

As for Vic's past and what he discovered about it in the previous book - or didn't discover as the case may be - and what he learns at the end here:

I'm not sure if we're supposed to already be able to figure out who Dr. Kemal is, based on everything we already know. Dr. K is too obvious, and wouldn't be hiring people for Laura's assistant anyway. I'm in need of a major reread of the series, but I did a quick skim of the first two books and nothing popped out at me.

(spoiler show)

I hope it's not too long for the next book, because I need answers now!

 

I did feel it dragged just a teensy bit, but JCP switched gears at the exact right time to keep it from being an issue. I am curious though if "carrot in headlights" is an actual saying that anyone anywhere has ever used, or what the hell that was about. Vic's very obsessed with carrots in this one and I don't know why, lol.

Agent Bayne (PsyCop #9) (Audiobook)
Agent Bayne (PsyCop Book 9) - Jordan Castillo Price,Gomez Pugh

Review of book here.

 

Still as enjoyable as the first time. Gomez Pugh once again performs brilliantly.

 

I'm eager to see where this series is going to go next after the reveals made here with Vic's past and the pre-runner to the FPMP.

Secrets - Jordan Castillo Price

The first chapter was OMFG SO HAWT, YAAAAS! Holy fucking Batman, the biting...

 

It was humbling to have someone able to press all my buttons that well. Maybe it was a little scary, too. What if Jacob used his superpower for evil, not good? Would it matter? Probably not, as long as he kept me drugged with sex.

 

Jacob's working a case in an elderly home with his partner, Carolyn. Vic gets asked to help, and since Lisa is visiting and trying to figure out the extent she's willing to go to with her sí-no, she makes it that much easier to solve the case.

 

You don't have to be psychic to end up knowing things you were a lot happier not knowing.

 

There's secrets, hidden truths, omissions, and patience is stretched thin on Vic's side... He just wants answers.

 

You'd think that either something is factual or it isn't. Carolyn tells me people's individual truths often have little to do with facts.

 

Something I wasn't very fond of was the jealousy, and the role Crash played in it all. Crash is a devil, but I like him, and at times Vic made him out to be much worse than he actually is...

 

Jacob being unable to keep his eyes–and hands–to himself while they were surrounded by cops, was pretty satisfying.

 

"He can't keep his eyes off you. Whenever you're in the room..."
"Yeah, I know. It's weird."

 

I'm excited for the next book, because Heliotrope Station sounds like hell, indeed, and I'm curious what really went down while Vic was there.

Mnevermind 3: Life is Awesome - Jordan Castillo Price

This will not be an actual review, I will just put together a few thoughts on the series. 

What happens every time I read a JCP book is after I finish it, it's like I've spent time with her characters in real life and they are actual people. 
If a book makes you go and read two more books and articles on the topics discussed in it, that undoubtedly proves how great it is. 

Mnevermind is perfectly well thought and built. Great characters- I loved Elijah, and at the same time I felt very emotionally involved with Daniel. The way the interaction between them was progressing was beyond unpredictable and I really appreciated how their problems wouldn't just disappear if they closed their eyes
Amazing concept and focus on the detail, I don't even want to think how much research JCP has done before writing the series

As usual, I don't know what I get myself into when I read a Jordan Castillo Price novel...
