About the Author
Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.

Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

Growing up the outcast in an infamous family of psychics, Nate Black never learned how to control his empath abilities. Then after five years without contact, his estranged twin turns up dead in New York City. The claim of suicide doesn’t ring true, especially when a mysterious vision tells Nate it was murder. Now his long-hated gift is his only tool to investigate. 

Hitching from his tiny Texas town, Nate is picked up by Trent, a gorgeous engineer who thrives on sarcasm and skepticism. The heat that sparks between them is instant and intense, and Nate ends up trusting Trent with his secrets—something he’s never done before. But once they arrive in the city, the secrets multiply when Nate discovers an underground supernatural community, more missing psychics, and frightening information about his own talent.

Nate is left questioning his connection with Trent. Are their feelings real, or are they being propelled by abilities Nate didn’t realize he had? His fear of his power grows, but Nate must overcome it to find his brother’s killer and trust himself with Trent’s heart.

Strong written and very intriquing

Insight by Santino Hassell 5 BIG stars

Nate has a 'gift' and he doesn't know to scream or be happy with it...
So far it disrupt his whole being....so screaming is a good option...
 
At his miserable job at the liquor shop he meets Trent who helps him with the most irritating man from his youth who has even beaten him into the hospital.
Trent has good vibes, he radiates calmness and kindness... and that's an experience Nate rarely meets.
 
After a strange body experience he finds out his twin brother Theo is dead..... police report says suicide... Nate feels it's not suicide and knows he has to find out. Leaving his pathetic 'gifted' family is easy....only all those questions in his head...
On his way to New York he's picked up by Trent...
 
In NY he finds out that Theo was in 'the Community' with other 'gifted' persons.
Very confusing for Nate to discover all sorts of gifts.
Bit by bit he's unfolding a complicated case. Close attention is necessary!! So not reading while tired! To see inside the Community was like being located in a vespiary. So much going around in the psychic world.....So many questions....
 
Nate has many different physical manifestations, nausea, stomach pain, gagging are a few of them. I felt sorry for him...he has it hard in al the darkness. 
His light at the end of the tunnel is Trent... He can distract him of all the grey noise. Trent is his rock, his home, in no time they can't live without each other.
 
Fast forwarding read, strong written and unbelievable good entertaining. When you're in you're in.
You will like it or not... I think...
The power was sparkling off all the sentences... very intriguing with an unexpected plot.  
It was tensive and very anxious. Sitting on the edge of the sofa....damn...
All the dialogues were explicit and evident. The whole story was sort of overwhelming and I read this book was a monster to create.....well.....it was a monster to read....it took me days....
But I'm glad I did read this one and followed my gut to do so because it was a good choice!!
