Mind Tamer (Network One #1) by Moriah Densley

Meet Lyssa Logan: Red-head, violinist extraordinaire, deli sandwich addict. Her undergraduate music theory students call her “Sarge.” She hears you thinking she’s a “7” on the 1-10 hotness scale, and she likes to solve crimes before they happen. That’s not normal, but it gets worse. She suspects she’s not aging, and lately she suffers from horrible headaches, spasms of debilitating power she can’t control, and she’s losing her grip on reality.

Enter Kyros Vassalos: Molecular physicist by day and racquetball champion by night, and yes, those are leather pants he’s wearing. NASA, Interpol, and the Pentagon all have him on speed dial, but after a near-miss with an assassin, Kyros transfers to Northern California University to lay low for a while, until someone notices he’s not aging, either.

The moment Kyros sees Lyssa, he knows she’s of his kind. No hocus-pocus, no voodoo, they are simply among the very few “extra-sentient,” with the extraordinary ability to unlock the full potential of the mind. Kyros is desperate to teach her to control her power before it overwhelms and destroys her. Lyssa fears Kyros is more trouble than she bargained for, but once she steps into his world, there is no going back.

My review:

I love, love, loved this book!  Moriah Densley is a “new to me” author but I can tell you I will be checking out her backlist and looking forward to new installments of The Network.  Mind Tamer is the first in an exciting new series featuring extra-sentients. Extra-sentients are folks with extra gifts above and beyond genius or savant levels.  Kyros Vassalos is a smoking hot extra-sentient who has been around for over 300 years.  He is the good guy doing what he can to make the world a better place. He is super smart but even he isn’t prepared for Lyssa Logan.  She is an extraordinary violinist who moonlights as a crime stopper and is just coming into her gifts.  They chemistry between the two is flammable and although she fights it Lyssa finds she needs Kyros for more than just his help in training her gifts.  Although this book is billed as a paranormal romance it is more urban fantasy.  There isn’t a whole lot of sex but rather a slow burn.  Bottom line this is a well written, fast paced action packed read that I really enjoyed.
