Perceived Love

by

Viki Lyn

When psychic Nate Coleman dreams of a murder, he knows it’s a premonition. He can’t forget the image of his ex-lover with a bullet hole through his chest. Nate has no choice but to confront Will and face the skeptical scientist’s ridicule.

Dr. William Ryner doesn’t believe in what he can’t prove. When Nate comes back into his life, it’s not to rekindle their love, but to bring up more of that mumbo jumbo that split them apart.

Despite Will’s refusal to listen, Nate can’t ignore the premonition. And, Will can’t ignore Nate. Before the gunman strikes, Will must either trust in Nate’s ability or rely only on the facts, but if he does the latter, pride could be the death of him.

NOTE: This story is a do-over, and has almost tripled in size! This book was previously published but has been revised and edited in this edition.

Dr. Will Ryner Character Interview 

What did you want to be when you were a kid?

A cowboy. I loved the idea of living on the range.

What do you value the most in your friends?

Loyalty

What is your favorite song?

The song of the moment, you mean. I change my favorite song constantly. Right now I’m listening to Roxy Music’s True to Life.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I tend to see things in black and white. Nate is always teasing me how I can’t make a decision without a spreadsheet. I’m learning to be more open to things to possibilities and things that can’t be quantified or explained in a laboratory. It’s fun.

What word or phrase do you overuse?

Fuck yeah.

Excerpt

Nate woke with a start, his heart pounding. He reached for the water glass on the nightstand and almost dropped it. Rarely did he dream of death, but when he did, he took notice. That it was Will he’d seen in his nightmare made it more complicated.

No matter. Nate had a responsibility to explore the possibility that this was a precognitive dream. Beyond that, he didn’t want to think about the consequences of taking action.

Nate grabbed his sketchbook from his nightstand. He picked up a charcoal pencil and sketched the dream images before they vanished from his mind—the gunman had worn an orange baseball cap and dark hoodie. Nate recognized the oval-shaped plaza with its pruned elm trees and classical bandstand. Will and Nate used to jog the trails throughout Golden Gate Park, and Spreckels Temple of Music had been one of their favorite places to see a concert.

There would be no reason for Will to be on a stage, especially a bandstand in San Francisco. He had moved after their breakup and now lived in London. Yet Nate couldn’t shake off the sense of dread. Maybe he had substituted Spreckels for a place in London? Sometimes his dreams were hard to interpret. Images were often metaphors.

But this nightmare… Shit. The man with the gun could be a metaphor for himself. He did own an orange baseball cap stuffed away in the back of his closet.

No. No way was Nate the shadowy figure. Sure, at first he’d wanted retribution, for Will to suffer as much as Nate had. The hurt and anger burned for months. Then one summer morning, he had awakened with a feeling of peace. The ache in his chest had lessened. From that day forward, he’d wiped Will from his memory and gotten on with his life.

Nate finished his drawings and tossed the sketchbook and pencil on the floor.

Next to him, Lulu napped on a pillow. Nate snuggled the furry body to his chest. The cat’s warmth eased his anxiety.

Lulu meowed at being disturbed as she sprawled into Nate’s arms. He’d taken in the ginger kitten when he found her on his stoop. A bowl of milk a day had convinced her to become his constant companion.

He scratched the underside of Lulu’s chin. “What should I do? He doesn’t live here. And even if I did find his number, he’d laugh me off the phone.”

Lulu tilted her heart-shaped head and blinked those expressive green eyes as if to say Nate was crazy to even consider calling his ex-boyfriend.

“Yeah, yeah, you’re right. I’d be insane to open myself to his ridicule.”

Will, a scientist through and through, would never listen to Nate’s warning. Will only believed in what he could prove in a laboratory.

Review: There is something about paranormals that always call to me. I have read so many that when I find a new one that has a different twist to them I am usually one of the first ones to grab it. This one has the psychic touch to it that just pulls you in. Then you add in two gorgeous men that have a past then I am caught.

Nate has been dreaming about his ex-boyfriend’s murder. He hasn’t seen Will in quite a while but feels that he needs to tell him. The problem is Will broke up with him, because of his gifts. He can’t help but wonder what is going to happen. Whereas Will was freaked out by what Nate does, and couldn’t stay with him. Now he is the one in danger, and Will has to decide to trust or ignore him. If he doesn’t then he could be killed, but can they fix what has happened between them.

I enjoyed this book and would definitely hope that this will be turned into a series. I want to hear more about these two men. There is just a hint of humor but mostly it is told in a serious tone. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to then end. It also gave me almost everything I could want in a story.

I loved it and would definitely recommend this book.
