Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first. – Goodreads

I feel a bit bad giving this book such a low rating because it is not a bad book nor is it badly written. It is just didn’t manage to hold my attention.

I think the problem might be that I have read some really great books lately, with either intense romance, original story lines or just great plots and this book, sadly had neither.

To be totally honest it all felt like I had read it before or like maybe the author had found a step by step formula to writing Young Adult Paranormal and wasn’t straying from it by an inch. To the point where I could guess almost exactly what the next plot point was going to be.

As I said I wasn’t a bad book it was just a Blah book. I read quite a lot of this genre and it is all starting to get very boring and one dimensional. I am really hoping that the authors out there will start stretching themselves.
