Watch Your Step (Look Behind You #2) by Jessica L. Jackson

Vie is tough, sexy and fiercely loyal. As an international P.I., she doesn’t take much from anyone. Her paranormal talent permits her to “look” back in time but using this skill makes her vulnerable. So she needs a guide—someone trustworthy and courageous, willing to protect her and keep up with her. What she isn’t expecting to find is a man capable of stirring her passionate nature.

Beckley is determined to change his career as a stodgy librarian. At the wackiest interview ever, he quickly discovers adventure awaits him if he joins Vie. “Watch your step with Violet Tine,” he’s warned. She chews up her guides and spits them out. However, Beckley is tougher than he appears and has a talent of his own—reading auras. When he views Vie’s, he knows there’s more to this hard-as-nails woman than others can see.

The second book in the Look Behind You series is an intriguing read that has readers shivering in suspense. As an international P.I., Vie’s paranormal talent permits her to “look” back in time. Stodgy librarian, Beckley is determined to change his career and he has a paranormal talent of his own – reading auras. Together the two will dive into a thrilling paranormal adventure that threatens everything they hold dear.

The steady paced plot keeps readers engaged with lots of mystery, a little action and romance. The author uses well written words and details to make the scenes and events come alive which makes the reader feel as if they are part of the story sending chills down their spine and their hair rising on the back of their necks. The strong compelling characters are easily understood and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

The attraction between Beckley and Vie radiates heat from the pages and the sex scenes are sensual, stimulating and steamy with the romance progressing at a believable rate throughout the book.  The characters themselves draw the reader deeper into the story with the vibrant intensity that the author portrays their personalities and their abilities. For added spice the couple exchanges a lot of witty banter on their cases and quotes from different sources, their personalities match so well that the reader just knows that this couple is meant to be together forever.

The suspense itself also draws the reader deeper into the story and tension builds as Vie and Beckley are stalked by a very unusual and intriguing enemy. “Curiosity killed the cat” is a saying that comes to my mind because the plot keeps inspiring curiosity and the reader just can’t stop reading until they know everything.  I found the story to be an enjoyable and sensual paranormal romance with a few unique elements and some very bewitching characters that capture the imagination. This book can be read as a stand alone, I have not read the first one yet, although I will be remedying that, but the story does reference the events of the previous book.
