I can see how a person is going to die.

I don't know when and I don't always know who but it's a curse I've had since childhood.

There are people who call what I see a gift but I disagree. After years of trying to ignore the visions that haunt me I'm being told I have to embrace this "gift".

If I refuse the punishment will be catastrophic.

Embracing the nightmares within my own mind is the only way I can save myself... and HIM.

The only man I've ever let close.

The only man I've ever loved.

Can I let go of the fear I've carried around my whole life in order to save him?

I just don't know.


Excerpt:

Jordan turned his face to nuzzle the spot between my breasts and placed a soft kiss before looking back up at me. “I love you so much, Taylor. You’re my world.”

I felt my cheeks growing hot at his intensity. “I love you, too.”

 He crept up my body until we were face to face and his forearms were resting on the counter on either side of my head. “I’m pretty sure I fell in love with you the first time you blushed for me, Crimson.”

          I need to start out by saying that I was blown away with this book. I received this as an ARC from the author and to be honest, I didn’t even read the synopsis or reviews. I just dove head first into this book. Nightmare from Within is not your typical romance. Yes, there is romance, but I felt it was more on the suspense side of the genres. Ok, let’s meet the characters.
        Taylor Carmichael is not your typical twenty-three year old girl, and she has struggled with that fact since she was seven.  Taylor has a special ‘gift’, yet until she realizes what it is that she is supposed to do with this gift, it is nothing more than a nuisance. She has always seen herself as an outcast. She even legally changed her name to keep herself distanced from her parents, as she has always been an “embarrassment”. She has never let anyone close to her, she is alone. That is until she meets HIM. 
          Detective Jordan Donovan.. hmm… what to say about this man… Jordan has that bad cop/good cop vibe all over him. When he lays eyes on Taylor while she is working at Benny’s Diner, he was blown away. When he made her smile, a real genuine smile, there was no denying he had to know this girl. Jordan is the detective on a mass murdering case. The media dubbed this crazed mass murderer “The Poet”.

          When Taylor meets Daniel , she thinks that she has completely lost her mind. He tells her that he is her 'Guide' and if she doesn't start to try to use her gift, she ultimately will die before her next birthday.  You can imagine how well she takes this news...

          As Taylor and Jordan's relationship progresses, she finds herself sharing more and more of her life with him. She feels so comfortable around him and can't explain why. That is until one night when Taylor rushes off with a migraine and she is forced to tell him about her visions. He is immediately caught off guard and does not handle this news well.
          Who would have thought that they’re lives were brought together by fate? Can Taylor accept her gift in order to save the lives of the only few people she has let into her heart?
This is definitely a book that I will be recommended to everyone. Jessica Prince did a fabulous job with these characters and I can't wait to see what she does next! 
Happy Reading!!!
I'm a wife, mother, wino, coffee addict and avid a lover of all types of books, but romances are my main favs. My husband likes to say reading is my obsession but I just say it's my passion... there's a difference. 

I've been writing since I was a little kid and I finally decided to take the leap and actually publish when Picking up the Pieces came to me. Now that I've been bitten by the writing bug I just can't seem to stop.
