Synopsis: An angel, a demon and a vampire walk into a bar. Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it's just another day in the life of Kyle McKinley.
Kyle was born with the ability to erase memories, and the inability to keep her opinions to herself. She and her teammates – a vampire who looks like a sexy pirate with fangs, and a Shamat demon with a penchant for Italian pastries – provide supernatural damage control when humans see too much. Today’s problem? A sword-wielding angel and a demon had a supernatural smackdown during happy hour in a Cleveland bar, leaving behind a headless vampire and a dozen human witnesses.
This latest supernatural slip-up is attracting all kinds of attention. So much attention that the police step in, and Kyle has to deal with Joe Dalton, a know-it-all human with the sexiest turquoise eyes she has ever seen. Kyle has no room in her life for yet another human who will treat her like a freak. However, Dalton definitely makes her naughty parts sit up and take notice, and it’s more than mutual. But before they can act on their attraction, they must join forces to solve a dangerous puzzle. And when they uncover the truth, the apocalyptic ripple effect forces Kyle to make a choice. Learn to trust again, or risk losing everyone she cares about, including Dalton.
Series: Mind Sweepers
Review: Kyle McKinley is a woman who has the ability to erase or reinvent memories. Jean-Luc (a vampire) and Misha (a Shamat demon), along with Kyle help keep the paranormal/supernatural world from affecting the human world. Due to recent events, they’re forced to work with a liaison to the human police, Joe Dalton, who interests Kyle in a surprising way. An angel and demon fight over a vampire in a local Cleveland bar without shielding themselves from the humans is anything but an ordinary case for this team. As the mystery unfolds, it becomes even stranger than they ever expected. MIND SWEEPER burst out on the pages with a fully developed world and great characters. The character interactions during the story were my favorite part. Kyle, Jean-Luc, and Misha are like family and it shows by how they treat each other. I liked Kyle a lot, she has a big mouth and isn’t afraid of hard work. With the introduction of Joe Dalton, a very calm, collected, and cool man, who ends up integrating into the team very well, the dynamic was complete. The mystery is good; there is great dialogue and humor throughout the story, plus a side order of romance. MIND SWEEPER is the first book in a series I know I’ll keep reading.
