4 "I Sense You" Stars for the story and 4.5 Stars for the narration!
Having fallen in love with the Seven series, both from a writing and a narration point of view, I was delighted to hear that the dynamic duo who wrote and narrated that series (Dannika Dark and Nicole Poole) were releasing an audio version of a standalone novella from Dannika Dark's previous Mageri series. Needless to say I enjoyed the fabulous narration and was intrigued by the intricate world that Dannika Dark gives us a peek into in CLOSER.
In CLOSER, we get a glimpse at a secret society of immortals that include "sensors," like the hero of this romance, Kane. Sensors can feel the emotional energy of the people they touch, basically experiencing and capturing others' emotions. Kane, however, is hypersensitive and instead of this transference of emotional energy being a positive experience, it actually leads to pain, causing him to have to wear gloves before touching anyone. As you can imagine, this disability leads to Kane living a pretty lonely life.
Until he comes across Caroline, a sensor who has a different type of disability, and whose life hangs in the balance. When they meet in this tenuous situation, Kane is forced to make a decision between taking the safe path or exploring the unusual chemistry between them, even if in saving Caroline from imminent danger, he may cause his own demise.
As in the Seven series, Dannika Dark knows how to write romantic suspense into her PNR/UF stories. The immediacy of Kane's and Caroline's situation, and forced contemplative nature of their interactions, lead to a highly intense connection. Moreover, though I haven't read the Mageri series, this glimpse into the intricate PNR/UF world that forms a backdrop for this series has certainly piqued my curiosity. I can't wait to explore more of this series!
