#Review: Feel – Karen-Anne Stewart
From the moment she was born, Saige knew she was different. She experienced people’s feelings in such a way that sometimes left her feeling lonely and bereft. For her, feeling what everyone else feels has become the norm. To make matters worse, she can also deduce when someone’s end is near. Deep inside, she wants nothing more than to have a normal life. One where she won’t feel as many of the feelings she experiences each and every day.
Her world is soon turned topsy-turvy as it collides with that of a killer intent on hurting as many people as possible. Saige knows that she can’t allow what the killer wants to happen. There are too many lives at stake. Hers, included. Somehow, some way, she will thwart his plans, or die trying in the process.
As tensions rise, Saige soon comes face to face with the one person who made her life complete. Though they’ve spent years apart, there’s no denying that they still care for one another. The fact that the killer has brought them together isn’t lost on either of them. In order to make the world a better place, she and Jensen will have to unite in the hopes of stopping the madman. The question is, will they be able to forgive each others past indiscretions when the time comes?
A truly explosive story, Feel is both bittersweet and thrilling at the same time. We get to experience Saige’s ups and downs as she tries to assert herself in the world she lives in. It honestly sucks that she’s had to put up with so many disappointments, though. Jensen complements her uncertainty, however, and boosts her up whenever needed. I hope we get to see more of these two lovely characters. I somehow think their story isn’t quite finished yet. Definitely a good read!
Saige’s hand rests on the knob. Her fingernails are a bright blue. The color of the sky. Another thing that hasn’t changed about Saige, it looks like she’s still painting her nails happy colors. From the day I met her, she’s plastered bright, cheerful colors on her fingers and toes, trying to give herself a piece of happiness to feel each day. Seeing the same color on her nails today as the sky we used to look up at together for hours as we lay in the grass, is both comforting and fucking heartbreaking. It’s been several seconds and her hand is still on the doorknob. I can see her shoulders rising and falling with her shallow breathing, probably wondering if she should let me inside.
“I’ll tell you anything you want to know,” I promise.
Wordlessly, she slips inside and leans against the door. Her hand still has a death grip on the doorknob and I grin when I see her wrist.
“You’re still wearing the bracelet I gave you,” I whisper, brushing my thumb across the worn leather.
Saige pulls her wrist away. “Don’t get all emotional. I just happen to like the bracelet,” she mumbles, her eyes not quite meeting mine.
The grin never leaves my lips, not buying that excuse. Maybe there is still some hope left.
The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.
I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.
Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.
This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.
Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.
