Kieran Quinn is a bit telepathic, a little psychokinetic, and very gay—three things that have gotten him through life perfectly well so far—but when self-styled prophet Wyatt Jackson arrives during Pride Week, things take a violent turn.
Kieran’s powers are somewhat underwhelming but do have a habit of refracting light into spectacular rainbows for him to hide behind. Even so, it’s not long before Kieran is struggling to maintain his own anonymity while battling wits with a handsome cop, getting some flirting in with a hunky leather man, saving some drag queens, and escaping the worst blind date in history. It’s enough to make a fledgling hero want to give up before he even begins.
One thing’s for sure: saving the day has never been so fabulous
Massage therapist Kieran Quinn has hidden his telepathic and psychokinetic gifts since he was ten years old, but when a madman begins threatening the safety of Ottawa’s Pride Week attendees, he puts his anonymity into jeopardy to help his fellow LGBT* brethren, at great cost to himself. Luckily though he gets to meet the love of his life along the way.
Funny, entertaining, with some interesting world building…I’m really glad I picked this up. I enjoyed the action moments, and the romance (even if the sexy times are fade to black – I didn’t mind, really), and the obvious love of Ottawa’s Pride Week. Sure, there are some niggling moments, mainly for me the resolution of the plot was handled in a really glaringly obvious way leaving me shaking my head at Kieran’s utter obtuseness. But on the whole I really thoroughly enjoyed the story and flipped through the pages quickly.
