Publisher's Summary

A telepath with a lethal twist.

My name is Neely, and I'm a telepath-spiker. Not only can I read a person's thoughts, I can also spike deadly power straight into their brain.

But don't worry, I have strict rules about that sort of thing.

I'm hiding again. This time in a California desert truck-stop town run by Lucas Blacke, a tiger shifter and alpha leader who's as handsome as Lucifer and twice as slippery. I've been running from alphas like him my whole life. They either want to own me or kill me - there is no middle ground.

Now a homicidal alpha from my past is threatening everything I care about, and I know I can't fight him alone. Lucas Blacke is dangerous, and his intentions are murky at best, but I've run out of options. If I want to live, I'm going to have to put my faith in a man I know I can't trust.

Not another one

The book was fine, I guess. I am very tired of male leads having to be alpha-holes to women, who seem to put up with it and then they get to know “the real man” and fall for him.

Great New Fantasy Romance

Although the general plot line of this series is similar to many in the genre, I enjoyed Spiked due to the characters and the new nuance of the "spiker" concept. I am on book 3 right now, and mostly just wanted to warn Audible listeners that only book one is available through Audible :-( I dislike it when this happens with a series, as I prefer to listen to my books when I work.

8 chapters in.

All I can think is what a stupid stupid girl. How did she survive this long. Waste of a damn credit.

It's ok.

For some reason this was a really hard read. I determinedly sloughed through it but it was tough. Hopefully if there's a second book it will be an easier read. The narrator did a good job, the book just felt like a chore to get through.

Adventure before romance

This is the kind of romance that I like where the story is actually a murder mystery and good guys against the bad guys. But in the meantime, while the two main characters battle evil together, are slowly developing a romance with the assumption of more in future stories. Ms. Garcia performed the narration very well with voice changes and dramatic expertise.

Why isn't this more popular!?

Finally, dear reader, I've found a book to praise! This book was way more intense than I expected, but in the best way possible (I laughed! I cried!). It was a pleasant surprise to have actual character development - and not just the main character! There was a whole community of supporting characters that you actually got to know who weren't just one-dimensional stereotypes. Despite the length, the story was fast paced and kept my attention. The romantic relationship was not the sole focus of the story, but I'm sure it will develop more in books to come. I'm going to be stalking audible until the next book is released.

Try it

This is one of my favorite new series. The characters are interesting and the narrator was excellent.
