  Samantha Bevans is having the best sex of her life, but not with her husband. As an empath who senses other people's emotions, isn't her affair all in her mind? Her connection to the man with the the chiselled face and haunting eyes seems so real. But there's no time for fantasies when a serial killer loose in Pittsburgh begins targeting dancers at a strip club where Samantha used to tend bar, back when drugs were the only cure for the torment brought on by her abilities. Now a member of a special task force, Samantha uses her talents to help with the investigation by sensing the victims' final thoughts. Just when she thought the case was complex enough, she discovers one of the victims was thinking about her fantasy man when she died. Readers will yearn for more in this spine-tingling ride through death, blood, murder, mystery, and passion, as Samantha questions who she can trust when she can’t trust her own mind. After all, an empath feels the emotional environment around her . . . and Samantha is surrounded by death.

  Books like this feed an addiction I sometimes forget I have.  This is an adult erotic/romance/suspense novel and I was loving every single minute of it.  Dyllin has a way with words and crafts her characters in a way like no other.  Feeling Death was a sexually charged mystery that had me gripping the pages and sent my mind reeling, trying to work out all of the little signs that screamed that there was more to the story than what sat at the surface.

  The plot with this one was so much different than I had expected.  I basically went into this with expectations of the characters based on the short synopsis... DO not do what I did because you will be wrong and you will feel sorry for yourself for having been so naive.  To say that everything was simple would be a lie but Dyllin also did not over complicate things.  She kept my interest easily but never gives away more than needed at that moment.  There is a certain amount of intrigue that I felt consistently throughout and not that I didn't figure certain things out but even with that, it seemed there was always a little piece missing,  This made it not only addictive but a quick read because I was pulled right through to the end... No stopping.

  Sam was a character that I can't say I related to but I did want to know her story.  She seemed reasonable enough but she did not take everything at face value, but who could blame her with all the crap going on.  She seemed to be living a happy life but what her dreams and feelings are telling her contradict that.  With her being an empath, that is huge and sent all kinds of questions trough my mind.  This is when I realized that she was not so much as having an affair with the guy in her dreams but maybe seeing something more that she was supposed to.  Thankfully being with an ability seems to have made Sam perceptive and seeing she wasn't a push over, she wasn't going to just take everyone's word about everything.  I ended up really on her side and wanting to kick some ass for/with her because of all of the lies that she had to decode and deal with.

  Now for the romance part of this.  I have realized that Dyllin does not really do triangles.  There may be a second guy but it is only ever one that is ever the clear choice.  It is never annoying or makes me want to punch something, even if I do not like one or the other.  These are the triangles that people don't mind and I mean that with all seriousness.  Heck one of these guys only seems to be in Sam's dreams only... no matter how hot those dreams may be.  Where I said that I normally don't like one guy or the other, because of the mystery I was unsure who I liked.  Well I knew I liked Austin but Nixon put me on edge despite how sweet he seemed... mostly.  I think more people will like Austin the dream man but hey you never know.

  When it comes to new adult and adult novels that have a paranormal element, D.T. Dyllin has the most original ideas.  When I first started reading this talented woman's writing I was blown away with not only my first new adult read but a paranormal one at that.  Picking up Feeling Death I knew I was in for an addictive read but I was not sure if it would live up to my love of her previous series.  However, I was proven wrong and though I will always love the P.J. Stone trilogy above all, The Death trilogy is easily catching up.  If you love paranormal but want something with some heat to it, Feeling Death is not to be ignored!

18+ (Adult)

And for my treachery, I was rewarded with a mind-blowing orgasm; my mind was blown because in order to get off while having sex with my husband, I just had to picture someone else.  And not just for help like a normal fantasy, no.  I was as if I were wishing Nixon would actually become Austin.

"Yes, I told you about my imagined affair, remember?  That's an example of why I'm not good enough for Nixon, not really.  I'm sure he doesn't go around imagining I'm someone else when we're... being intimate."

  One of the many problems of being an empath was that now I knew he was aroused, I couldn't let him comfort me, it was just too weird.  I shifted in his arms uncomfortably; a sudden arousal of my own washing over me.  Crap.
