About the book

Reading minds can be dangerous.

Parsley Walker can hear people’s thoughts and it’s made her a target. As a natural born telepath who’s also telekinetic—two things that can be disturbingly lucrative in the wrong person’s hands—she’s learned to hide who she is. To be always moving and never at ease. To run from that inevitable moment of discovery. She’s a nomad in a waitress’s uniform. This is how she survives.

Until him.

Jesse Linwood is a vampire with a problem. An automaton with sharp teeth, he was sent to evaluate and ultimately abduct her. What he doesn’t expect is the way her blue eyes turn him inside out. Stalking her wasn’t supposed to make him feel anything. She was supposed be like all the others. He begins to unravel and, in the end, makes the choice to pick a fight he knows he cannot win in order to save her life.

This is the first book in a planned series and DOES end in a cliffhanger. It also includes erotic scenes and graphic violence.

Fan of swoony vampires that glow in the sun - well First Fruits is NOT that. What it is , is a normally bad guy ordered by an even worst guy to kidnap this special coveted girl. Like all good stories life always have a tendency to be complicated - that is where the drama comes in.

Parsley “Par” Walker if she was to ever past you on the streets one would completely ignore her. She’s quiet , homely looking and working as a waitress i a small town diner. Her main goal in life is to stay ahead of her past and remain unnoticed. Par’s plan seemed to work until this mysterious customer walks in and takes notice of her.

Jesse Linwood is not a good guy or even a bad guy. He follows orders set by his “father” Patrick. His current mission to obtain a certain woman that possess desired powers for him. This is certainly not the first time Jesse was sent to kidnap someone, but there is definitely something different about Parsley that may make his task much more difficult. Whenever he’s near her his mind is clear and he has free will.

First Fruits reads like a tv shows with multiple characters and sides stories, if you’re one that likes to skim books you may find yourself lost. The writing keeps you intrigued from beginning to end. I have a have an appreciations for characters good or bad that draw emotions or any reaction for that matter. Amanda did not disappoint with the cast that she created, even the secondary characters made the plot more realistic.

With any good book it has to come to an end and it brought as a cliffhanger, which makes me crazy in an exceptional way. I can’t wait to see what happens next especially since it left my heart racing.
