read what happens next This is the first book in a series and while it can be read alone, it has a rather big hanging ending with little to no resolution on any front As I haven t read the subsequent

hanging ending with little to no resolution on any front As I haven t read the subsequent books, I ve no idea if any of the issues raised are resolved but the blurbs tease that perhaps there arechapters to go before an eventual happy ending, if one exists So keep this in mind if you re the type that likes your stories wrapped up in the space of the book, otherwise know going in you re tapping into so far a three part series Now that being said, as a first installment this wasn t bad and certainly set up enough themes to be explored in future sequels The plot revolves around the commonly used theme of paranormal abilities and the undercover, evil agency that wants to use, abuse, and capture these people In this case the ing nue is Kiran, a Minder with the ability to manipulate others minds, actions, and emotions He is innocent and shy, jumpy after years of abuse at the hands of the evil agency and unwilling to use his powers unless he absolutely has to More willing to submit to poor treatment thrust upon than fight back, Kir is tired of being a pawn and simply wants to hide He ventures out for anonymous sex with strangers as the only way to quiet the never ending thinking of his mind and he quickly attaches himself to Josh as the first person who s ever shown him care, kindness, and concern Josh is the alpha male and a former marine that has an attack of conscience when he witnesses the torture Kir is to suffer after his capture Josh struggles with his feelings and what is reality versus what is thrust upon him by Kir s coercion His overwhelming urge to protect and comfort Kir confuses him and forces him to question the source of his emotions Just as Josh questions the majority of his thoughts and actions, uncertain what level of force and control he s been subjected to and falling back on the information of others that soundsbelievable Josh is a strong character yet allows himself to be manipulated repeatedly by almost every person in the book Both characters were well established yet not entirely fully three dimensional Repeated visions of Kir shaking, scared, fearful and uncertain are at odds with the resourceful personality needed to evade capture for so long Just as Josh s competent actions and strong feelings of right and wrong conflict repeatedly with his easy gullibility There seemed to be a lack of emotional attachment between Josh and Kir even though there clearly was a connection Additionally the entire action subplot felt too clich with the utterly evil agency and equally evil Minders This might have worked in a longer novel withattention to detail and fleshing out of both the plot and character profiles but the short nature of the story under 70 pages caused definite drawbacks to be evident Unfortunately the hanging ending had me slightly annoyed, but that is certainly a personal bias I enjoy a series, but I prefer a story arc to begin and end within one book rather than dragging out the resolution to multiple books However, for those that don t mind the prolonged story arc over numerous books won t see this as a detriment While the characters weren t entirely successful, the writing was easy enough that it s a rather fast read with some intriguing men and a basic plot with a slight twist As an introductory book, it hit all the necessary points while creating enough interest to keep readers going to the second book I m not sure if I ll move on in the series, but I am certainly considering it I d love to see Kir s progression 3.5 StarsALive Your Life, Buy The BookReviewTo start with, I loved the first half of this book We get to see Josh setting up his trap for Kir, and all the planning gone into it Then comes the escape from the agency, after Josh is horrified to learn the truth of what they were doing to Kir I liked how this was set up, so that from then on we never really know if Josh is being manipulated by Kir s ability, or if he s acting of his own free will.The writing was well done in my opinion, as I 3.5 StarsALive Your Life, Buy The BookReviewTo start with, I loved the first half of this book We get to see Josh setting up his trap

then on we never really know if Josh is being manipulated by Kir s ability, or if he s acting of his own free will.The writing was well done in my opinion, as I never felt like I was being jarred out of the story, and only once did I have to reread a sentence to pick up its meaning I liked the characters too, and especially the way Josh slowly starts to lose his grip on sanity as the confusion and doubt escalate through the book Very nicely done.I would have liked to seeof a build up to the sex though as it felt almost out of place with Kir s character We spend a fair bit of time learning that Kir doesn t like to be touched, and so it felt quite abrupt when the sex scene happened I think this is one of those cases where a sex scene should have been left out in order to buildtrust between the characters and have them forgeof an emotional connection.The ending itself happened very quickly Being from Josh s point of view, we actually miss a lot of what happens, and I was left confused by Josh s reaction From what little we saw, I had difficulty believing that Josh s doubts could have manifested so dramatically Perhaps if the ending had been longer, it would have allowedtime to flesh out what was going on in his mind prior to the final scene with Kir.And damn, cliffhanger alert While the main story of Kir s capture and escape is wrapped up, we re left with a very open ending We seem to skip the vast majority of the consequences Josh has to face for his actions, which, in my opinion, leaves the ending a bit underwhelming That said, it does have me intrigued to know what comes next Monster is a short read I did like the story of the premise, but I thought the author could go deeper with character development and plot It ended abruptly, but it is still a fun story. interesting concept it s ok..way too short to build any momentum. I liked one of Joely Skye s other books, so I m going to give this one a chance despite the creepy gnarly weirdo lookin guy on the cover.
