Title: Spook Squad (PsyCop #7)
Author Name: Jordan Castillo Price
Publication Date & Length: August 30, 2013 – 321 pgs
Everyone enjoys peace and tranquility, and Victor Bayne is no exception. He goes to great lengths to maintain a harmonious home with his partner, Jacob. Although the cannery is huge, it’s grown difficult to avoid the elephant in the room…the elephant with the letters FPMP scrawled on its hide.
Once Jacob surrendered his PsyCop badge, he infiltrated the Federal Psychic Monitoring Program. In his typical restrained fashion, he hasn’t been sharing much about what he actually does behind its vigilantly guarded doors. And true to form, Vic hasn’t asked. In fact, he would prefer not to think about the FPMP at all, since he’s owed Director Dreyfuss an exorcism since their private flight to PsyTrain.
While Vic has successfully avoided FPMP entanglement for several months, now his debt has finally come due.
This story helped me love the series again. While the previous book was less than my favorite, this one was great! I loved the new changes that the characters had to wade through, the mystery was ever present and with the new powers they all are facing, each will have to rely on people they normally would not rely on.
Dr. Chance’s presence was great! I loved what she gave to the story. It was with this aspect of the mystery that I was most taken by. Then you have the secrecy of Con – can he really be trusted or is he just using Vic?
Then you have the introduction of Con and his people – more so than in the previous story and I liked that new characters were introduced.
Finally, you have more in the way of seeing Crash’s perspective on life and his issues come more to light – Lisa is still a slight conundrum, as I don’t know if she’s really invested in her friendship with Vic or is that just within her comfort zone?
There were a lot of questions that came through for me during this story – but I can’t wait to see where everything shakes out.
This book was such a awesome addition to this series!
With this book we get more of Victor which I loved and of course his inner monologue which was at times so funny but also helped me learn more about him too.
Then there was Jacob which was good also, I have to admit I love his character too. He is in a different job now so while trying to work on a case he is also trying to protect Victor from those who would do him harm.
There was a lot of action in this book and some steam which was so very hot! I have to say I love the way this author writes the steamy scenes in this series. There always so very hot!
You see a lot of the characters from the previous books in this series too which was also very good.
There was just so much going on in this book between Victor trying to exercise a ghost that is evil and trying to figure out who around himself he could really trust. I have to say this has been one of my favorite M/M series! Every book in this series has been so good and has had me on the edge of my seat hoping for the best for these characters. Also Victor and Jacob can I just say how much I really love them together and how I love the way this author wrote these characters.
So I will leave this review with I really loved this book and I hope this is not the last we will see of Victor and Jacob! 🙂
I would 100% recommend this series!
Another awesome and twisted book by Jordan Castillo Price. There were a lot of unpredictable surprised that kept me flying through the pages of this book. More of my two favorite men doing their thing.
I really loved how we learned more about all the characters we’ve met in all of the previous books. It was a perfect conclusion to the series, even if I was sad to see it come.
All the previous question were so perfectly answered and closed the series in such a nice way that it left me wanting more.
I’ll still say this is absolutely my favorite series with my favorite characters.
4 Spooky Stars!
I feel like I want to say I am verklempt over this book. Siiigh.
When I have finished the previous books I am usually jubilant, not Sound of Music singing in the hills jubilant, more of the pervy jubilant. Like I got a glimpse into a sacred, intense relationship that made all my bits siiiiiing. This story, not so much. Not that I am disappointed but just kind of a bit, sort of… let down. I still love Jordan Castillo Price, don’t get me wrong. But I felt a lot of parts dragged and I felt a bit left out of Vic and Jacob’s relationship. I guess the first book kind of exploded my senses when it came to this relationship and I have pretty much gotten a good dose of their intensity (or the equivalency in word porn to satisfy my appetite for this sexy duo).
I still think Jordan Castillo Price possesses an imagination that is beyond impressive. The storyline that she enraptures us with is intricate and intriguing and continually growing. This paranormal world is envious and one you sometimes wish you were part of, and then other times you are very glad you aren’t in their world!!!! haha
I would read more in this series!!! I hope we get more in this series!!
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Inked Rainbow Reads.
