Mix together some romance, a paranormal element, dangerous situations, and fast paced action and you have Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl. Grace Woznisky is pitching a mosaic artwork to a new client, where she briefly meets David Gallant. When she does not get the job, David offers her one at his beach house. What she does not realize is that David is a mind hacker, someone who can enter the minds of others to read thoughts and change memories. The attraction between David and Grace is instant and soon they are an item. However, this places Grace as a pawn between David and an unknown mind hacker, intent on destroying David's mind forever. A race against time and death begin in a deadly cat and mouse game between David and the dangerous hacker. Who will survive?

A delightful, fast paced story, with all the elements necessary for a great read. The paranormal abilities explored in this book make for a fascinating and thought provoking topic which will keep you on the edge of your seat. Mind Waves has plenty of action, romance and danger, creating a captivating read from Amanda Uhl. The characters are fascinating and realistic, and the plot is carefully constructed so as to keep you guessing. This story will stay with you long after you have finished the last page. It's probably a good idea to pick up the other books in the series before you start. This is a journey you will want to continue! I loved the book and the topic it covered, and look forward to reading more in this series.

Readers, I am happy to introduce you to Amanda Uhl and her debut novel, Mind Waves. In this exciting fantasy and suspense romance, we are introduced to our heroine, Grace, a lost Midwestern gal from Cleveland. Saying goodbye to a corporate job and a husband in the same year had been difficult, but Grace is trying to move on. She lives alone with a witty parrot, and in addition to her own life, she must deal with a clingy, wilder sister who is about to be married, and a typical Mom who wants her daughters to be happy.

Grace decides to parlay her love of beach glass into an artistic business. As we all know, when you finally decide on a course of action, life can erupt. Soon, Grace is confronted by two handsome men and a government secret. The government has a Mind Control Unit, with “mind hackers” who can explore a person’s thoughts and rearrange or even erase them.

Being around two mind hackers leads to some amusing moments for Grace, “No fair, this is my daydream. Stay out.” “She would show mister mind control that he wasn’t the boss of her.”

But mind hacking can be deadly, especially when evil must be confronted.
“It’s Grace. A good portion of her mind has been wiped by our hacker.”

Can good prevail? Can the memories that link her to her lover be recovered?

Goodreads Reader: Author Uhl gives us a well-written story with an exciting, smoothly paced plot and twists. The second half of the book is especially gripping and it was hard to put the book down. The usual mix of romance characters are enjoyable and paired with the art of mind hacking, Ms. Uhl has created an enthralling read. This is the first book in the Mind Hacker series and I know we will all look forward to the next book from this talented author.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I have also pre-ordered this book.

This was a unique book, one that really intrigued me from the beginning. It's paranormal, but the author wrote it in such a way that it doesn't seem so farfetched. I enjoyed reading about the underground society of mind readers and their partners, and the ways they assist the government and private companies.

Grace Woznisky is an artist, who has been trying to get new commissions for her work. When she shows up to make a proposal to a potential buyer, she is immediately shut down by a visiting consultant, David Jenkins. She meets him later in a coffee shop, and he starts to show up more often in her life. They begin to fall in love, when David's ability attracts the attention of a dangerous rogue mind reader,who is determined to have Grace for himself. Together, Grace and David must battle their enemy, without losing the love they have for each other.

I loved the developing relationship between Grace and David! It wasn't too fast or too slow, and because this is a clean romance, I had no trouble feeling their connection to each other. The focus was more on them in love as opposed to in lust. It did become a little frustrating in the second half of the book, when David changed how he treated Grace. However, given the circumstances, I suppose he can be forgiven. Grace's family was a bit odd, especially her flirtatious, runaway bride sister, Claire. But who doesn't have relatives like that somewhere in the family tree?

I look forward to reading more books by this author! The concept is intriguing, and I loved how she incorporated it into the modern world. Great book!
