She reads minds.
He controls minds.
Together, they might get out alive.
Sam thinks she's months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old.
Only Sam isn't normal. She reads minds. And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything.
Drake wasn't raised as a 'Rent-A-Kid.' He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam.
When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn't a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape.
To survive, they must work together.
But will their powers be enough to save them before it's too late?
This was a really awesome book! I enjoyed it so much, it was really entertaining and great, and I just didn't want it to end! Well, that it was a series meant that I was a bit OK with it ending, because we'd get more, and spend more time in this world, which is just great!
So the whole thing of the Rent-a-Kid, well, the idea seems to be gathering momentum, because I've been seeing it around. Adding in the paranormal aspect, just made everything like, 10 times better! Loved all that, and how the powers worked!
That was just awesome, those powers! And with Sam and Drake's complimenting powers over the mind, well, yeah, it was natural that they would form that connection. But the Rent-a-Kid organization is pretty bad, and devious then they thought!
Really enjoyed all the twists and turns, because there was secrets and lies piled on top of each other, and as they slowly discovered them, and made their plans, the bad guys were there, and manipulating the pair even as they were trying to escape!
Such a great, fantastic book, really enjoyed it, and now I want more!
