The Little Black Box
After the suspicious suicides of several student test subjects, Paula Crenshaw, research assistant and budding telekinetic in Paranormal Sciences at Blackridge University, suspects they may be connected to a little black box designed to read auras. Professor Jonas Pritchard, the head of the department, doesn't believe his precious experiment could be causing students to drop like flies.
But when her best friend almost dies after her encounter with the black box, Paula is certain there is a connection. She pulls her cute, but sloppy, office buddy, Will Littlejohn, into the mystery, and they get closer to the truth behind who might be financially backing the project and why. Haunted by memories of a childhood accident, which she believes she caused with her untamed psychic abilities, Paula finds herself lured to the black box and its mysteries.
|Reviewed by Jean for Fallen Angels Reviews 4 Angels!||"In my opinion, Lyons writes excellent short stories that are plotted tightly and yet are very emotionally evocative. This is one of them. This is a short story which deals with a family of psychics in a near-future in which the Supreme Court has made a decision that psychics are to be accorded the same rights and privileges as other citizens. The conflict in the story erupts from the traumas of the years before the decision, when psychics were apparently treated like sub-humans. The characters of Alex and Ginny are realistically and sympathetically drawn. This is a very explicit, erotic story, including light bondage, submission, and a sort of voyeurism. In spite of being very hard-hitting, the author very capably resolves the storyline by the end." LINK: Fallen Angel Reviews|
|Reviewed by Valerie for Love Romances 4 Hearts!||"This is a short story from Brenna Lyons" Renegade Series. It is a powerfully written tale about a man who needs to let go of his fears and the woman who unselfishly helps him. The characters are very well written, and although this reviewer has never read any of the Renegade series, there was no problem with connecting with the characters or the plot of the story. There is plenty of action, mostly the bedroom kind, which is very sensuous, sexy and romantic. Ms. Lyons knows how to write a very hot love scene, and she will have you reaching for the ice bucket! Although this is a short story, Ms. Lyons has packed a lot into it, and this reviewer found it a very satisfactory read." LINK: Love Romances|
|Reviewed by Julie Esparza for Just Erotic Romance Reviews 4 Stars!||"Ms. Lyons has written a "what now" book in her Renegade Series. Even though I hadn"t read the other books, I was still able to see how trapped Alex was in the paranoia of his experiences as a child. His character really hasn"t grown. Ginny however, with the help of her father, has been able to step past the horrors that lay behind them. You feel the desperation of Ginny, knowing she wants to help him break free because he has a piece of her heart. The sex is hot and steamy with some inventive uses of technology for a touch of bondage. The romance is as sweet as roses and this short story will make for a nice purchase even if you haven"t read the other books in the series."|
|Reviewed by Julia for The Romance Studio 4 Hearts||"Max Sec is about two people that have been scarred in the past, and are sometimes still struggling with that to live in the present. Ginny seems to have done better with her memories, but Alex seems to have issues even he isn't aware of. Both of them are very likable, and I really cared about whether or not they were able to overcome Alex's paranoia. The sex in the book is hot and passionate, with a lot of emotion running between the two. I haven't read anything in this series, but now that I have read Max Sec, I will be sure to be on the lookout for more."|
