Bitten by a mutant scorpion in a motorcycle club initiation gone wrong, former rich kid Damon awakens with the power to read minds.
“Reading Steele” is a 14,000 word, 54 page novella about two eighteen-year-olds from different worlds who find out they have more in common than they ever suspected. This bad boy male/male romance includes strong language and some sexual situations. It’s a complete Happy For Now story with no cliffhangers and no cheating.
I really liked the way the book begin. It had something fun about the way the Damon thinks about the Motorcycle Club guys, I really love how mocking he was about the way they conduct themselves, it was very entertaining. The pace was ok for most of the book, but I felt like the ending was a little rushed and it finished leaving a lot of questions in the air.
It had an interesting concept, but after a while of Damon’s ability to listening into people’s thoughts it became a little predictable, and I was expecting it to go away and that the story would only concentrate in the relationship between Damon and Steele, which sort of did, but I wanted that particular feature of Damon to disappear. It also made me feel angry at him because it is a really mean thing to do, to know what people think, and not tell them. I think that made him a little unlikable for me.
Steele was ok, but I don’t think really got to know him, only some of his thoughts. What I knew of him was nice, he was very unsecure guy behind a hard cover. I can’t help to think Damon take advantage of him, I really feel bad for him.
The plot was nice, but I think it would be just fine without the mind reading stuff. I wasn’t too sure about the bad guys, they didn’t convinced me too much, they were a little soft for what they were portraying.
Overall it was a nice book to read, I enjoy most of it and even with the issues I had, it was fun to read.
I Received copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
