I liked the characters in this, Grace was interesting but I found her a bit annoying as a heroine. I wasn't quite sure what to make of David. The downside being there was so many characters to keep track of that the concept of the story was a bit lost in it.
The idea of the mind waves was good, I like it. But the story itself was a bit difficult to follow.

If you could read thoughts, and alter them to your liking, would you abuse that kind of power or make sure to respect boundaries?

David Jenkins is a Mind Hacker. He can read minds, erase or change memories and thoughts, and generally hack into someone’s head as he pleases. But he’s not doing it for fun. A Government Operative, David uses his ability to ensure the safety of common civilians from criminals. However, lately, there has been a certain criminal who seems to have the same skillset as him – and Grace Woznisky, a woman David is strongly attracted to, has become said criminal’s sick new obsession. Will David be able to protect her, all the while keeping his identity hidden? And how is he going to do that, if he’s on the verge of breaking the one rule he always followed: never get too close to a civilian?

Well this book sure had some interesting plot twists and sidestories to offer. Apart from the X-men kind of feeling – courtesy of the Jenkins family – it was also fast-paced and full of intrigue and action. The main villain kept twisting around and it was nearly impossible to fgiure him out, not until he decided to explain himself – which was rather late in the story, so bonus points to keeping the suspence that way!

The romance was definitely a nice touch, as it was given room to bloom and develop even with the insta-attraction factor giving it a headstart. The only thing that may have brought me down a little was how much everyone – especially Geneva – was hellbent on interfering with David’s decisions when it came to Grace. I mean, sheesh, guys, he’s the strongest member of the team, and he’s damn good and in love, leave the man be!

I’m looking forward to reading more of this series, Geneva’s story in particular – I have a feeling she’ll get a book of her own, that kind of tension I sensed just can’t be ignored!

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily giving an honest review.

David is a Mind Hacker and works for a secretive branch of the government. It is very important for him to stay focused and unemotional, for it could cost him his life and the lives of the team he works with. He is one of the strongest with his ability but someone wants to eliminate him.....

Grace is a freelance artist and meets David when she puts a bid in on a project. She doesn't know David has seen her before. David is quite impressed with Grace and is also very attracted to her. He has never felt quite the attraction he does and it bothers him. This is the beginning of danger for both of them.

Grace has been chatting with a man online and this man wants to get to know her better. They have only chatted and don't even know each others real name, that's what Grace believes to be true. This man has a different agenda.

I am on the fence about this book. I liked David and Grace's story but the "mind waves" part confused me a bit. It is very intense which it should be because every "mission" could end in the death of the person traveling into that mind. This is a very different type of paranormal for me so I do expect an adjustment period to get everything down pat.

The whole issue of being able to read ones mind is frightening as is being able to erase memories. I think I would like to read more of this type of book before I say I don't like it.
