Genre: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.
I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.
Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.
This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.
***Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.
Saige can feel the emotions of others; love, fear, anger, passion, etc. She has felt alone her entire life, like no one can ever truly understand her. She also has visions of future local dangers, and she has always tried to keep them to herself for fear of people thinking she was out of her mind. In the few instances where she’s warned people, they’ve all looked at her the same–like she’s batshit crazy. She met Jensen on the playground as a young girl when he saved her from some bullies, and it started a great friendship that later became something more. But before it could really become anything, she was sent away. By him.
Jensen hasn’t had the best life. His father, who became disappointed and then non-complacent in him when he realized he had no special powers, was not a good guy. Jensen had dreams of growing up with Saige, being her everything, but when he learns his father’s plans, he has to send her away. But it broke his heart to do so. Especially when Saige didn’t have many people to rely on.
Saige was at times immature, and she had a tough time figuring out Jensen when he was the only one she couldn’t feel. For someone who seeks out certain people by their actions (i.e. couples holding hands) for an uplift in her mood, she couldn’t see the guilt and love written all over Jensen. She was strong for what she suffered through, both in the past and in the present, but also very “blind” to her own abilities, what she could handle. I had a tough time connecting to either of the characters, but was still able to follow the story without it. It was a good story overall, although the dialogue was a bit young-sounding, but a refreshing paranormal story.
