  • Heroine: Rapunzel had more contact in her tower
  • Dude: Chris Hemsworth is a jaguar
  • Steaminess: 50 shades of shifter
  • Brutality: Death by mind overload

From Goodreads

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous – aching need…exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.
