What it’s about:

Someone wants Skye Hunter’s son, Tyler, and they’re willing to kill to get him. On the run for her life, Skye turns to the only person she believes can help her—a complete stranger with a shared past.

David Bishop thinks Skye is crazy. But when he realizes she has the same strange phenomenon inside her body that he does—the ability to move objects with her mind, David is forced to question his life, his childhood and his father’s motives. Can these two lost souls uncover the mystery of their telekinetic powers and save Tyler and themselves in the process?

Guest reviewer Jennie’s Thoughts:

In Identity, heroine Skye Hunter has a secret past that’s got her on the run with her young son. Skye seeks out magician David Bishop, who she believes has more than the usual tricks up his sleeves. Together they fight a growing attraction while trying to solve the question of their special gifts. Can these two lost souls uncover the mystery of their telekinetic powers?
Identity is a romance/thriller/mystery with telekinesis thrown in for good measure. Any one of those genres would have worked, because the story line is interesting. But I was left with the impression that the author couldn’t make up their mind what they wanted to write so everything went into the soup pot. It was an ambitious attempt.
The characters are quite predictably attractive, sexy, and smart. And also, of course, attracted to each other despite needing to be independent. This naturally created a sexual tension which ultimately needed resolution. Meanwhile, all that tension just slowed the story down. Fine, they’re attracted to each other? Ok, (flips pages of inner monologue about firm arms and dark hair and good skin and soft curves) -now let’s get back to the “secret past” part of the story. And the telekinesis! More of that would have been great!!
I also found myself distracted by the writing style. This author is highly descriptive, which to me comes across as clunky, but I know many readers find it immersive.
Overall, a quick and easy read.
