Touched (Book 1) In the world of Isabelle de Grey, eyesight isn’t the only way to see. Her psychic ability gives her a second type of vision. When she touches objects and people, she looks into their past. But her gift is equal parts curse. She has yet to find the lover who can accept the brutal truth of what she sees. Isolated and rejected, she is ready to abandon her career when she meets FBI profiler Gavin “Mac” MacMillan. Thrown together when the daughter of a mutual friend is abducted, Isabelle discovers that Mac could be the man who won’t push her away. Despite his controlled exterior, she senses a fevered passion in him that boils just below the surface. But as she and Mac give in to their desires and race to save a young girl, Isabelle must learn yet again that every touch has its price. Torn (Book 2) Psychic Isabelle de Grey and FBI Special Agent Gavin “Mac” MacMillan are an improbable couple. But when her world of seeing into the past and his world of profiling criminals overlaps, an intense, sensual relationship quickly erupts. Despite bicoastal living arrangements, red-hot desire still consumes them both. Though Isabelle is thrilled that Mac is returning to L.A., her happiness is tempered by the grim reality they must face. The serial killer who escaped them has struck again and kidnapped another young woman. Though Isabelle and Mac work together, he keeps their relationship hidden in order to preserve his job. As the investigation falters and the strain of secrecy takes its toll, Isabelle and Mac struggle to find a way forward. Despite the heated passion that explodes between them, hard decisions lay in store for the couple as they discover that every choice has its cost. Taken (Book 3) Although psychic Isabelle de Grey and FBI Special Agent Gavin “Mac” MacMillan are most definitely a couple, they hadn’t counted on being together 24/7. But when a serial killer known as the Chameleon takes a special interest in Isabelle, Mac refuses to leave her side. Chosen (Book 4) The Green Earth Commune isn’t all that it seems. When psychic Isabelle de Grey arrives, only her ability to read the past reveals something is terribly amiss. Though her instincts tell her to run, Isabelle can’t say no to a former friend in desperate need of help. But the turmoil has just begun when FBI profiler Gavin “Mac” MacMillan arrives unexpectedly in Los Angeles. As the passion that has always claimed them heats to beyond boiling, Mac and Isabelle find themselves at a crossroads. Charmed (Book 5) When psychic Isabelle de Grey discovers her ex-boyfriend is alive, nothing can stop her from finding him. But it seems that all roads lead to the Green Earth Commune and Mac has forbidden her from going. After shots were fired at them, it doesn’t take an FBI agent to know the secluded settlement is dangerous. Changed (Book 6) Though Isabelle and Mac struggle to settle into a new life together, the world seems set against it. Events at the Green Earth Commune take stranger and stranger turns, until neither of them can turn away. Something dark waits in the heart of the small community, though neither of them suspects the deadly truth. If you love hunky alphas and gutsy heroines--and the ultra steamy side--the Second Sight box set is for you!
3 out of 5 (good)
Second Sight Boxed Set is the full collection of 6 books, regarding Isabelle and Mac. Isabelle is a psychic, whilst Mac is an FBI agent. These two are definitely a case of opposites attract. The 6 books cover two different crime situations - one is with a serial killer, and the other is a missing person. Now obviously, there is more to it than this, but those are the bare basics.
Whilst I am a fan of Hazel Hunter's work, this box set just didn't quite hit the mark for me. I actually enjoyed the crime/suspense part of it more than I did the relationship. That just didn't work for me as Isabelle and Mac didn't actually talk about anything, let alone try to deal with any problems. All they did was have sex... a LOT of sex. And all I will say is if I ever felt the way that they do during sex, I'd probably go see a doctor! I don't know. I know a lot of people will just say it was really hot, yada, yada, yada, but it didn't work for me.
I also found a few loose ends that you would think would be tied up after six books. For example, Ben's insistence that Isabelle was bad for Mac and his career, and by opposition, Yolanda's insistence that it would all end badly for them. A big deal was made of this, but nothing actually came of it.
Although these books are very well-written, I did feel like something was missing. I'm not sure what. There are parts that I loved, and parts that I didn't. Take a chance and see for yourself, that's what I recommend.
