My 4 star review for Epiphany by Christina Jean Michaels

For all the times I'd witnessed the murders of other women in my dreams, I'd failed to see my own.

For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher's Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn't prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she's been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They've turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media's headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.

Approximately 87,000 words. Epiphany is a new adult, romantic suspense novel with light paranormal undertones. ***Mature content warning for sexy adult situations, language, and disturbing subject matter.***

My 4 Star Review:

I enjoyed the sixth sense aspect to this story.

Mackenzie is a 23 year old woman just trying to get through the day, trying to be normal. Seriously, who wants to be friends with someone who dreams about other women’s murders? Leaving her life behind, she moves to Watcher’s Point for a fresh start. She has made a pretty good friend, Six and has a job she mostly enjoys. The last thing she expected was Aidan to waltz into her life. Did I mention that he is the guy she has been dreaming about? Yep, you heard me.. He walks into her life.. Gorgeous, mysterious, smart and closed off.. *insert caution and EXPLOSIVE chemistry here*

Aidan is on a mission. He is in Watcher’s Point for one reason only and that is to end the mocking he left back home. His past locked tightly away along with his misery and secrets. What he wasn’t planning on was Mac. How this mysterious beauty was able to break down his walls is beyond him. The one thing he knows is that he will do anything to protect.

Together Mac and Adian learn to trust. Learn to move forward by being able to face the past and accept it to welcome the future they deserve.

To make things even more crazy how about we enter *crazy family secrets here* I am talking a DOOZY of one, one that will tear relationships apart.

Risking being together could be a killer for their new found relationship.
All I have to say is that Christina did a FANTASTIC job. The characters were very well written. I loved how I was able to connect with each of them in one way or another.

The twists and turns kept me guessing throughout the story. Then you have the jaw dropping moments when some family secrets surface. This book has it all..the unexplained, mystery, suspense, drama, heartache and romance.

I cannot wait for to see what is in store for Mac and Aidan in Awakening.


About the Author:

 Christina Jean Michaels was born in Paradise, California, but she has found the true home of her heart in Eugene, Oregon where she finds plenty of inspiration for storytelling.

When she was young, her mother said she hated words. Now she can't imagine not writing. She became an avid reader when she was thirteen and discovered the world of Sweet Valley High. About a year later she realized she could play God and write about her own characters. She has been writing in some form ever since.

She's also written erotica under the pseudonym of Gemma James and loves to explore the darker side of sex in her fiction. She's morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy and enjoys exploring the deviant side of human nature. Her stories have been described as being "not for the faint of heart."

Christina lives with her husband and their four children—three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
