    This is a romance novel If you re unfamiliar with the romance formula then I m about to spoil every single romance novel ever They all end on a deliriously happy note with an abundance of perfection.So whilst I won t discuss the actual end to this book, I don t think I really will be spoiling everything if I discuss the TYPE of end this book has and why it means that I just wasn t really meant for the romance genre.There was a lot to enjoy about this book For starters, considering it is billed as a romance novel, its world building was rather impressive The Psys people with specialized psychic mental abilities , Changelings shifters of various animal varieties and humans all live together with Psys generally occupying the higher echelons of society.The Psys are supposed to be completely unemotional and rational Which generally means they live long and prosper While Changelings are moving up the social ladder leaving the humans in the gutter where presumably they belong I m not sure they don t feature much in this novel and I must say, as a human, I find this pretty offensive The sole token human in the novel barely has a part Okay so emotions are forbidden which makes things kind of awkward for resident Psy, Sascha Duncan and Alpha Changeling hunk, Lucas Hunter.Luckily, it s a romance novel so they naturally work through it Or elseMy issue is that I just obviously wasn t really meant for the romance genre because I was perfectly fine with this book up until the last couple of chapters I don t want a super happy ending Not if it doesn t make any bloody sense and just comes out of nowhere Also, I have issues with paranormal romance and that is because most of them have a mate for life policy in which the paranormal creatures actually CAN T mate with anyone else even if their spouse dies.Look, this isn t even true in nature First of all, not all wolves mate for life in the wild usually only an alpha pair And you know what if one of that pair dies, the other one will probably find another mate It s kind of a sick thing to romantizice over too, when you think about it He loves me so much, that if I died, he d rather abandon our children and the world to come join me I don t think that s romantic at all In fact, I think it qualifies as a very unhealthy relationship There were definite dominance and control issues in this story that annoyed me as well Because, you know, the man is always right and a woman can t choose to make a sacrifice for something she believes in That s just not right She should listen to her man She needs permission to do these things.What is it with that in today s literature Do we still want a man that s going to knock us unconscious just to retain control Okay, story time with Kat I m pregnant and am therefor clinically insane Mr Kennedy arrived home from work a few weeks ago to find me in the backyard tilling the soil What the hell are you doing he exclaimed angrily.I glanced up from my hard labour, puffing but excited Look, honey I m making a veggie patch Now we ll have nice fresh veggies to eat Mr Kennedy looked at me with a special kind of horror as he began to mentally tabulate exactly how many weeks this madness was likely to go on for You hate gardening Why would you want a veggie patch Why, Honey Why I laughed at his silliness Everyone needs a veggie patch Silly, silly man Oh It ll be fun I ll just finish tilling this soil and then we can go out right away and buy some seedlings We ll have nice fresh veggies by the time the baby comes Mr Kennedy now has a Pavlovian upchuck reflex to any sentence that ends in, by the time the baby comes There is a certain manic way pregnant women say that, which instantly informs the rest of the world that reason and logic no longer hold any value.I then began furiously churning up the soil with one of those pick axe like things that you use to do this kind of work I don t know really, I found it in the shed and it looked like it d do the job I think I ve seen someone use it in a movie Will you stop that You re pregnant Don t be silly, I ll be done soon, darling Mr Kennedy groaned before stripping off his work shirt, snatching the pick axe from me and saying, Fine, I ll do it You just go sit down over there It was at this point that I could KIND of understand why my female ancestors traded some of their freedom and rights if it meant getting to watch a man like him work in the field every day Because frankly, he looks a lot like this And he was very, very impressive with that pick axeBut I m crazy, and pregnant and hormones are what they are.The fact is though, that as crazy and pregnant and hormonal as I am, I still don t want a caveman who thinks he can threaten, control, dominate and bully me Though I have consistently made sure I m doing heavy work around the time Mr Kennedy gets home so that I can watch him do it instead, no man is hot enough to be ordering me around and stomping all over my free will, damn it Thus the three stars Because I can t enjoy a story where the final lines go something like this, And so I learned that my husband was right all along Seriously, people I m married My husband hasn t been right since he signed those papers It s a fact of life.Married men are never right.The end.

    5HUGEGIGANTICIMMENSESTARS WOW WOW WOW I honestly don t know what to say about this book that hasn t already been said numerous times other than it s easily become my FAVORITE paranormal romance thus far There wasn t a single thing about this story that I didn t absolutely and completely love I won t go into detail about the plot, the characters, or the writing there are plenty of fantastic reviews already written that fully express my feelings, thoughts, and sentiments about this fantastic book series I will say, though, that Slave to Sensation had the perfect mixture of world building, character development, story depth, intrigue, action, eroticism, and romance Not once did I become frustrate or annoyed with the plot or the characters Nope I spent the whole book captivated, fascinated, and enthralled I was unable to put it down In fact, much to my family s dismay, I was so absorbed in the story that I read it in one sitting I m not sure why I waited so long to start this series because I knew it would be right up my alley Now I understand why so many of my friends consider the Psy Changeling series one of their favorite paranormal reads If the rest of the books are anything like this one, there s no doubt this series will become my favorite in the paranormal genre.

    4 Feels for the first time stars Slave to Sensation is my first book by Nalini Singh and I really enjoyed it I know I have had this baby on my kindle for a few years now and I sit here and wonder why I waited so long to start this series I loved the whole world set up The Psy being all mind with great psychic powers, and no feelings , the Changelings being shifters that feel greatly, and of course the boring humans I do wish there would have been a bit paranormal world development as I would have liked to known things like. how long do the para live, how do they know when they found their mates How do go about mating All these things were touched on in a glossed over kind of way Lucas was sexy as hell and full of life and passion, which made Sascha seem like a lump by comparison I did end up warming up to Sascha as the book went on but at first she was so flat it was hard to connect to her I loved Lucas and Sascha together Although I did wish Lucas would have figured out she was his mate a little bit sooner I also really liked the others in Lucas pack and I liked Hawke and I really hope he gets a book I sure he will since this series is so long Slave to Sensation was a great start to the series It got me hooked on the world and the secondary characters I can t wait to start book two

    This book goes to one of the best pnr s I ve ever read The writing is phenomenal, so great that I knew just with the first book that I ll be reading all the others I first heard of this series a few months ago, and my reaction was like this O.o Psychic people devoid of emotions and shape shifters as couples I decided I definitely wasn t going to read something like that.I was VERY, very, very, very stupid The story very much remindes me of the movie Equilibrium , in which the hero lives in a society where all humans are without emotions, he is a member of the highest authority, and he deals with extinguishing everything that might trigger an emotional response great movie btw, one of my favorites, Christian Bale is awsome Here the heroine is part of the Psy society, they are genetically modified humans with some amazing psychic abilities, but no notion of emotion She was born different, and forced to hide her nature from everyone Lucas is a changeling, a species of shifters, able to turn into animals at will He is wild by nature and ruled by emotion, and he finds her irresistible Being able to sense she s not the usuall Psy, he sets on seducing her for information Their chemistry was off the fu king charts I mean, wow Sascha was constantly trying to keep her facade of calm and emotionless, and Lucas was constantly trying to break it The touching, caressing, the dreams simply HOT I wanted to pet him myself the fact that he s a shifter didn t really bother me, in some books that part has an icky feel to it, but here it was perfectly ok And so I have to say, this book is a beginning of an obsession, I can already tell I love the style of writing, the world the author created has me in it s grip and I don t think it will let go untill I reach the final book.BTW, Hawk was in this one, the alpha of the wolf pack, I sooo want to read him

    Sascha Duncan Psy and Lucas Hunter Changeling This was about murder and the greatest lie that had ever been perpetuated by a race upon its own kind This book is an impressive start to a series that I have a feeling that it will become one of my favourite PNR series.Psy world is an interesting different new world I haven t read anything similar before to be honest The Psy have great psychic powers, but not feelings or desires.They basically live in two worlds 1 The real world which also includes Changelings shifters and humans.2 The PsyNet which is like Internet, except it s made up of minds, not computers I would also compare it with the movie Matrix It is actually a place where Psy meet and socialize.Shifters are the normal shifters that we meet in most PNR books They can transform into animals and they live in packs We learn about two packs 1 The DarkRiver leopard pack2 The SnowDancers wolf packThese two packs coexist in neighbourhood grounds.In terms of mating, there can be only one lifemate for each Changeling.Lucas Hunter is the Alpha of DarkRiver pack and he is a black panther He will meet Psy Sascha Duncan , while he tries to find the Psy killer who keeps butchering Changeling females When another girl is taken, Lucas runs out of time.Sascha lately is not well She is scared to death and she tries to hide it before she is locked away in a rehabilitation facility Her main problem is that she has started having feelings, emotions, physical reactions in these emotions This is not normal for a Psy She is defective The fact that she needs to work so closely to Changelings that they are overflowed with feelings and they are so close to their animal side, does not help.Gradually we will learn that Psy have secrets Their own lack of emotions is a deception imposed to them in order to make them less dangerous.I enjoyed the writing style and the way the story and the world building is exploited The mystery with the serial killer has a obvious solution, but I really did not mind this I wad satisfied with everything else view spoiler 2010 I think I will start this series I heard it is good.2012 Maybe this year, I will start it It has shifters 2013 Damn I think I will try it next year I have already started two new series.2016 This is the year I will start this series This January After I finish this trilogy And the new Black Dagger Legacy book And maybe a couple of books I started last December.2017 Why haven t I started this series yet Why Why Why 2018, January I am definitely starting this series next month Oh, look new books by Larissa Ione Oh God 2018, June I am officially declaring Psy Changeling series my challenge for this summer hide spoiler

    I m not usually a fan of romance and I m pretty new to PNR so I didn t really know what to expect from this book I ve had the whole series on my Kindle for some time but wasn t planning on reading it until Sarah and Angela ganged up on me Ah, good old peer pressure never fails So I decided to give the series a try despite the cheesy titles and ridiculous book covers Well, I have to say, thank you so much ladies because this was fun I expected silly romance but what did I get Complex, well thought out, refreshingly original world building I ve always been a shifter fan what can I say I can t resist domineering possessive Alphas who need taming and the idea of mixing them up with the Psy a race with psychic abilities was just pure brilliance Cold, analytical Psy vs emotional, tactile, unpredictable Changelings This is one world with huge potential I can t wait to see what Singh comes up with in the next instalments There are so many possibilities here that I can t see how this series could ever get boring crosses fingers If I wasn t feeling so lazy I d give details about the world but I am so if you want to know about just go read the book p Trust me when I say that this is good Really good.I think the main weakness of the book is the plot Hold on, no that s not right It s not the plot, it s the resolution No, that s not right either The plot is fast paced and pretty good but its resolution is disappointing because of the culprit s identity I guessed who it was very early on I kept hoping there would be a twist and it would turn out to be someone else but it didn t happen This is part of the reason I didn t give this book a 4 It was still a very entertaining story though Singh s writing flows effortlessly despite the changes in POV They can ruin a book when badly handled but here they only add to the story dynamics.The characters Sascha is great I just love how complex her character is, the way she constantly fights with herself and struggles with her arising emotions She s very straightforward, strong willed and isn t easily pushed around That s my kind of girl Lucas is the designated possessive stubborn sexy Alpha I have to admit that he s a bit on the light side as Alphas go and not as aggravating or overbearing as I expected It doesn t mean I didn t like him though and I wouldn t mind having this particular cat to tame o As I said before I m not very big on romance but I have to say this one was handled fairly well by Singh as it wasn t too overwhelming It s insta lust than insta love which fits the story perfectly The relationship between Sascha Lucas slowly evolves throughout the book and although you know from the start where it s heading Singh manages to keep things interesting until the end Okay, so it takes a while to get to the steamy sex scenes but the dream trick adds just enough lust and sexual tension to make it worth the wait And yes, the sex scenes are pretty hot Now the ending of the book is a bit too HEA for my taste but I guess it s pretty much a requirement in this genre so I ll try to get over it.A surprisingly good read which leaves me wanting Next please

    La novela empez requete bien Me ten a atrapada el universo que cre la autora, con estas razas que conviven con los humanos y me gust como las introdujo, ya que a las pocas p ginas era muy f cil entender las caracter sticas e intereses de cada uno, y c mo lo anterior se transformaba en juegos de poder Tambi n me ten a muy interesada y expectante la relaci n que comenzaba a desarrollarse con la pareja que protagoniza la historia.Peeero, avanzando un poco m s, la narraci n se vuelve bastante repetitiva me qued muy claro que Sascha ten a que rearmar sus protecciones mentales a cada rato y que Lucas le deb a lealtad al clan estas ideas se repiten por lo menos dos veces por p gina Pasada la mitad del libro, lo anterior se vuelve realmente cansador.Argumento Bueno, original, pero se cae estrepitosamente en un final que se resuelve en forma muy precipitada y sin ninguna vuelta de tuerca llamativa.Romance paranormal mehh, hay libros much simo mejores en este plano No conect con la relaci n view spoiler Creo que lo que me chirri fue que sus primeros encuentros fueron de sexo desenfrenado en un plano on rico, por lo que me falt el juego de seducci n y tira y afloja inicial hide spoiler
