KineticParanormal, Romantic Suspense
Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.
Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.
A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything …

Kinetic’s cover immediately drew me in, and it turns out the characters are as unique as the pretty on the front. I’m not quite sure that I would classify it as new adult. It’s more adult.
What I liked: There are a lot of things to like about Kinetic. My favorite is probably the different abilities, and I wish we’d gotten to see them a little more. It really is what set this book apart. The plot also kept me on my toes, because it’s more twisted than you will think when you first start it. Just when I’d think I had thing figured out, a new development would appear, changing everything. I liked Nick, and he had some awesome dialogue. Swoon.
What I didn’t like: I had a bit of trouble really becoming invested in the characters. I think that this is such a plot heavy book, the characters get a little lost. The character’s abilities also start to be borrowed between each other, and so they lose some of the uniqueness.
My recommendation: Kinetic has a strong, distinct style that I think some readers will love, while it will put other readers off. I recommend downloading the free sample and giving it a try because you just might love it.
