The book begins as Teddy Cannon is gambling in Vegas. She is in disguise as she has been banned from most casinos. She doesn’t count cards or cheat, but she does have an ability to “read” people. She knows what they are going to do and can make her moves accordingly. She owes a lot of money and needs to make it back so that she can pay off her debts and start over.
What Teddy sees as an “ability” is proof that she is “psychic”. She is approached at the casino and offered a chance to work on her skills and to learn more about her abilities. Where? At a school for psychics of course. There she meets others with various abilities and they all must pass the test to study at the school.
Teddy seems to digress a little in age for me. At the beginning of the book she comes off as older and more mature. Yes, she is playing a role at the casino, but still her thoughts and mannerisms make her appear older. When she gets to the school, she suddenly feels like a teenager who can’t decide what “hot” guy she wants to be with or what she is going to do.
She, and the other students do get to learn new skills and perfect the one skills they already possess to help their government. Plus, Teddy finds out some secrets about her past which also add to the intrigue and story-line. Also, this book has mystery, romance, the element of who can I trust, secrets, etc. Sounds like an interesting premise but it fell flat for me. Was this the case of “it’s not you – it’s me” I just had a hard time getting into this book. I think there are parts of this book that many will like but this just wasn’t really my cup of tea.
I received a copy of this book from Simon & Schuster and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
