Shadows of Light, By TC Collins

**This book contains Male Male Relations**

Matthew Rose is a reclusive psychic on the run from a mad psychologist. Held captive and exploited as a child because of his ability to connect minds with serial killers, all Matt wants now is to be free of his visions. His desire for peace is shattered when he sees the woman from his most recent vision lying in a pool of blood.

Adam Rivers, the homicide detective assigned to the murdered woman’s case, quickly realizes Matt is more than a witness. Adam fights his attraction to Matt because he doesn’t see himself as gay.

As the murders mount, Matt and Adam work together to defeat the killer—unaware that the mad psychologist from Matt’s past has returned and is determined to reclaim his prize. Can Adam keep Matt safe from the danger that surrounds him or will he lose the man he is just now realizing he loves? 

This book has one of those beginnings that brings so many questions to your mind that leaves you wanting to know what exactly is going on, and what is going to happen next. Doing that is a risky thing I believe for the author. Because what if you set it up that way, but then when it comes to the rest of the book, the story seems to lack a lot. In the case of this book, I was pleasently surprised with how the story ended up working out.

We are slammed with a lot of information right away and that lead me to having a spinning head. Once again though, that ended up working out throughout the course of the book. I was unsure of that fact from the beginning because there was so much that needed to be explained, I wasn't sure how TC was going to be able to write it all out. I was completely surprised!

The fear that Matthew was feeling during the course of the book was described so well, it was almost freaky! Everything that he had been through, and even was going through, would be enough to make a sane person go crazy. He was able to show his strength and still be pushing forward with his life, the only way he knew how. Watching as he came to his own and broke out of his shell was an amazing journey to watch and follow.

Adam seemed to have that sense of calm about him throughout the whole book. No matter what was going on, he was the calm one. I think that ended up working out very well seeing as how Matthew was bouncing through everything at the time. His personality seemed to compliment Matthew's completely. It was fun to watch as Adam tried to resist his desires when it came to Matthew, and even more fun when he finally gave into them.

This book completely surpassed my expectations of it and I was extremely glad that I had the chance to read it! I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a book that has the male male romances with a side dish of sci-fy.
