Once upon a time if you told doctors you heard voices, they d diagnose you as schizophrenic, put you on heavy drugs, and lock you in a cozy state institution to keep you from hurting yourself or others.Nowadays they test you first to see if you re psychic.Finally This book has been rooting on my TBR pile for a little than a year before my impulsive hand saying, Oh, and what the hell finally decided to grab it, read it, love it and review it I didn t quite exactly love it, but it without a doubt [...]
4 ended my book funk stars Review completed January 3, 2014I opened my eyes again to keep myself with Marks, anchored in the present, among the living Stop it, Marks You re killing me He sat back on his heels, still fully clothed, and licked his lips Why don t you call me Jacob he suggested New partner lined up yet I wondered if partner was also supposed to be flirtatious, as in sexual partner But even my Auracel addled mind figured that d be a pretty far stretch.Victor Bayne is a psychic medium [...]
FREE today at US 1 29 18 4.5 stars I am very very excited about this series I love the character of Vic and the psycop world that Jordan Castillo Price created This review won t be very long because I only have generalized gushy, lovey stuff to say about this series thus far My main complaint is that I wish the book was longer I could have used another 100 pages I m going to keep reading each book in the series because this first book just left me wanting
Posted at Hearts on Fire Reviews Among the Living is told from the perspective of Victor Bayne, a cop in Chicago s Paranormal Investigation Unit He is a Class 5 medium, with the ability to communicate with the dead At the start of the story, Victor is attending a retirement party for his former partner, Maurice He nearly crashes head first into Detective Jacob Marks, who eventually becomes his lover, and gets called in to investigate a very unusual homicide Victor is assisted by his new partner, [...]
I m so mad at myself Why, WHY, did I wait this long to start this series If a book could tick off every checkbox of what I find entertaining in a read, Among the Living does just that.Cops CheckHot cops CheckHot cops with guns CheckQuirky anti hero MC CheckSomething scary CheckSomething funny CheckSomething sweet CheckMakes fun of itself Check.Great writing Check.Potential for series CheckI love, love, LOVE VICTOR BAYNE and I honestly have no idea why He hears dead people talking, and is sloppy [...]
Writing tidbit I was initially going to make Vic dramatically paranormal First idea was he could be a genie who wasn t allowed to do wishes for himself Then, a half demon But I found the normal I made him if you could call him that , the the story came alive.
You know that moment when you read the first book in a series, and you do a little happy dance because you just discovered something amazing I m so there right now The only thing better than reading this book was the realization that there is a whole series ready and waiting for me It was a stupid idea anyway, trying to scare off a demon by putting him in a bubble like Glenda the Good Witch What I needed was to a house to drop on him It is rare for a book to hook me as quickly as this one did Pe [...]
I mostly loved this My one complaint would be about how Vic and Jacob s relationship starts Between there being no build up to it and not having Jacob s pov, I had a hard time feeling the chemistry between these two Since both MCs are very likeable, I m hoping that will change as I continue with the series I m very much looking forward to crazy, spooky cases.
Well, hullo there, Mr Tall, Dark, and Occult.Compact Funny, clever, sexy Original, and accomplished Looking forward to More of my bony arsed Bayne.
Vic is my everything and Gomez Pugh the narrator is perfection.And I m upping this from 4 to 5 stars When you ve reread listened to a book 2, 3 or, perhaps, 10 times, it s a 5 star read, friends WARNING The following may be a bit of a spoiler if you ve never read the series or, you know, a romance Every time I read or listen to any book in this series I find something new to love In this one it occurred to me for the first time exactly why Vic allows himself to fall so in love with Jacob Vic may [...]
Re read 6 18 16 still just as good as the first time I read it Just one book into this series and I m hooked I love Vic s voice and I absolutely adore Jacob Off to read the next one
4.5 Stars Picked this up as a freebie thanks Line and it was really good I don t read a lot of paranormal but sometimes want something different Nice mix of romance and suspense I am really intrigued by Jacob and Vic Despite this one being short, there was some nice steam And good banter I m definitely intrigued and plan to continue on with the series.
Now that we pretty darn good I enjoyed the premise and the world building.Two drawbacks for me and my tastes 1 It s short A novella I d say I find it very difficult to really immerse myself in a short story.2 Both MCs seemed older 40 s, 50 s I m not sure since it wasn t really stated My preference is for younger characters.But, I don t know I really liked the world created here and I think I might try in this series.
Written November 29, 20143 1 2 Stars A great start I m convinced Book 1The first novella in the PsyCop paranormal crime series about Victor Bayne, the psychic half a PsyCop team a gay medium and the tough gorgeous quite sexy cop Jacob Marks I listened to the audiobooks this one 3 hrs narrated in a perfect way for me by Gomez Pugh I started these books on a vacation trip and finished this first one next to two weeks ago I or less listened to both of the first two in one go The second one was eve [...]
Excellent I think one of the pleasures of JCP s work is her sense of proportion These stories have an unerring balance between the logical and the paranormal, the humorous and the dramatic, the romantic and the hot and sexy I was going to try to save them up and read slowly, like Christmas chocolates Who am I kidding I always finish those by Boxing Day, and these stories are just as addictive I finished the second before even taking time off to review the first Highly recommended.
I m addicted And hell a bit in love too Among the Living by Jordan Castillo Price blends day to day hassles and routine with the creeps and chills of the paranormal A story and world that had me smiling one minute and shivering the next Nothingness had never been so scary Victor Bayne is a PsyCop with the ability to see and communicate with the dead whether he feels up for chatting or not The dead drop by his apartment, haunt his days nights and every move Hell he can even conjure up the spirit [...]
3.5 Stars I wonder if I would have loved it if I had read it instead of listening to the audioversionGordon Pugh s narration itself was a bit flat and monotone and I had to struggle not to be miles away, needless to say getting tired while driving is not the best idea ever What he did great, though, was giving Jacob a sexy as hell voice and that was to die for.The story was okay for me, albeit nothing to write home about This is the first in a series, so I guess the worldbuilding will develop o [...]
Wow, excellent start I really enjoyed Victor and am already in love with big softy Jacob and the whole idea of the Psychic Cops is incredibly fascinating One small issue with this book in particular is that the actual murder case they worked on didn t hold much interest for me But with so many books in this series, there are many, many to come, so I m not at all worried.I m moving on to the next book I plan to do a comprehensive review of the characters when I am finished with the series, unle [...]
It was scary, sexy, sweet and my favourite loved it on to the next I really hate threesomes when one of the participants is dead.
I loved this book Victor has one of the most fascinating voices I ve met.He is not bothered by his flaws and moderately interested in what happens around him if he s not involved Things and people almost happen to him He is absorbed in himself and at the same time he doesn t take himself too seriously His psychic powers are an annoyance and he would clearly get rid of them if he could Although he s been trained to use them, it s clear he didn t pay much attention during his classes and people ar [...]
I absolutely love the premise of this series psychic cops in an urban fantasy world with an m m romance arc Oh yes I m paying attention.Vick Bayne is the voice of this story a PsyCop who see s and speaks to dead people a handy talent for the homicide division But Vick has issues.Duh Of course he has issues, who wouldn t He sees dead people for goodness sake.Low self esteem, a drug addiction, an inferiority complex and a haunted past are what seems to shape our MC Oddly enough I m not irritated b [...]
Quick review First I am not one to read paranormal books I am a self proclaimed lazy reader and do not want to spend time on the world building That being said, HOLYMOTHERFUCKINGSHITBALLS I am in love with this story It was nothing like I expected I was so easy to settle into, inside Vic s head and what was going on both inside and out of it It was so veray easy for me to fall in love with Jacob How could I not That man turned me into a huge pile of goo than once but those last lines of the boo [...]
So, I completely loved this I ll write later because I m too busy right now starting the second one.OK taking a brief break to share the love An actual review First, I m lame I hate starting a series that is totally established and multiple books in before I jump on board I have literary OCD and once I start a series and I like it, I can t stop until I ve read them all, in order whether they need to be read in order or not.This book is why I totally loved it Now I m committed to the whole seri [...]
I won this book in a Boys in Our Books giveaway, and now I can t thank them and the author enough I love Victor Bayne and Jacob Marks They are hot and funny I love the plot and all the paranormal scenario It s intelligent and captivating, and now I want
What a great start to a series, I can t wait to read the next one Extremely well written, this is my first time reading this author and I really love her writing style.
Once upon a time if you told doctors you heard voice, they d diagnose you as schizophrenic, put you on heavy drugs, and lock you away in a cozy state institution to keep you from hurting others Nowadays they test you first to see if you re psychic Have you ever wanted a psychic power Communicating with others telepathically Making objects move Being able to speak with animals Well, I used to want to move objects with my mind Reading Firestarter by Stephen King when I was a kid made me imagine al [...]
3.25 starsSo, at the end of this just now I came up feelingt sure how to feel about this In some ways I really enjoyed it Especially the last third of the book, where it really picked up and got into the action Also, the three smut scenes we got between Vic and Jacob were really hot But in some ways, it left me with a meh feeling There was hardly any world building this is an alternate universe, one that readers don t know much about except that it s almost like ours except for a supernatural el [...]
4,5 PsyCop stars This was great Great world build and characters Intriguing and captivating And creepy and scary A continuation of the series is a definite D Status updates 8%I really hate threesomes when one of the participants is dead.Yeah, I draw the line at dead people too Threesomes are okay, dead people no Especially if they re standing around the bed staring LOL14%The victim was splayed buck naked on his red velvet bedspread like a piece of fucking performance art Shards of mirror surroun [...]
This is a second time reading this series, and I m loving it all over again.Even knowing the outcome I still found myself on the edge of my seat The suspense and paranormal of this book is brilliant I love all the different psychic aspects we get introduced to.As for Victor and Jacob, well they just work for me on every level They have a chemistry that just feels right to me Victor s voice throughout the book draws me in, I love his sense of humour sarcastic wit Jacob is the gentle giant, I lov [...]
So good I m starting the next book right away.
