    I was given this beta in exchange for my honest opinion. Not gonna lie, I was a bit concerned when I heard this was a PNR. I am a huge KAS fan, but I'm always leery of authors jumping genres. Curiosity made me read this. And I lost a ton of sleep, lol. I literally read the parts the minute the emails came through. I was pleasantly surprised. For who knows what reason I had it in my head that aliens would be involved. Seriously, I don't know where I come up with this shit. So needless to say I was thrilled to learn they were gifted, not aliens. Jenson, Jenson, Jenson, when will you learn?That's it Jenson, now you're getting it. And the are all around.Well done, KAS.I love the cover. It's the perfect meadow. =)

    So the story starts off a little confusing for me. Getting comfortable with the characters and their backstory is key. I’m left a little hanging at the moment wondering exactly what is going on. I think that that’s just the nature of a paranormal, though. It just doesn’t jump right in with details, and it just keeps the reader guessing as to what is real and what is fantasy. But, as the story progresses, I’m getting deeper and deeper into the heroine’s, Saige’s, problems and emotional baggage when it comes to her family and past love, or should I just say people in general. One has to “feel” sorry for her. It’s not her fault. And, when her past heartbreak, Jensen, comes back into her life, she doesn’t exactly embrace him with open arms. Trust has to be regained if they’re ever going to have any chance of once again being a couple.This is Ms. Stewart’s first attempt at writing paranormal, and I would say that she hit it out of the ballpark. ACTION. INTENSITY. SUPERNATURAL.LOYALTY. FRIENDSHIP. And, LOVE, just make this book totally ENTERTAINING and EXCITING. When finishing one chapter, I had to immediately move onto the next one to see what was going to happen next. The story is narrated with dual POV’s from both Saige and Jensen. But, it’s Jensen’s voice that actually kept the story going for me. He’s CARING and CONFIDENT. He’s all MALE, and just listening to his words was pure fascination. He had a pull that just kept me captivated from the time he was first introduced until the very end. And, of course, he was sexy as hell with those green eyes and locks of blonde hair. Rippling muscles and gorgeous tattoos are just another attraction to get the reader’s blood pumping. Now Saige is a totally different character. She’s not annoying or nasty. She’s just written uniquely. She’s her own person. She seemed quiet at times, but then she could get quite rebellious. My heart really broke for her. She has no friends. Her parents were despicable. And, unfortunately she lives a life full of difficulty and pain by no choice of her own. She’s complicated, but yet invincible. Sad, but yet hopeful. Just being a total survivor is her truth. When both Jensen and Saige are together, it’s hypnotizing. The pair are just meant to be as one and it shows in the desire and love they have for each other.“Everything I’ve done has been with you being first in my mind. Where I lived could never be home if I thought that you couldn’t be completely who you are. Even though you weren’t actually there, you were still a part of me. I wanted you to have a good life, but I always held onto the hope that meant I would be involved in making it good again someday." ~ Jensen (Chap. 7)An amazing thing about Jensen and me is how words aren’t needed all the time. This is one of them. I can tell he knows just how much I love him and appreciate who he is with me. How he is with me. What he just said meant everything, and he knows that, too. I can feel it – not with special powers or psychic voodoo – but with his gentleness, respect, and the love in his touch as he wipes my tears away. ~ Saige (Chap. 7)With several storylines running around inside this novel and supporting characters that catch the reader’s attention, the author creates questions as to what will be the final outcome when the last page is turned. A few were predictable, but others were examined more extensively, which just solidifies the fact that Ms. Stewart is an excellent storyteller.Oh, and did I mention the HOT and STEAMY sexual encounters between Jensen and Saige? INCREDIBLE! And, just to further strengthen my opinion of just what kind of gentlemen Jensen really is, he in no way shape or form takes advantage of Saige and their past relationship to jump in bed with her immediately. He waits until she’s ready, which of course just further intensifies the sexual tension between the two. When they finally do come together it’s so much more believable and passionate.Another EXCELLENT book by Karen-Anne Stewart! Other than a somewhat confusing start, which could just be totally me, I’m glad that I stuck with it to the very end! 4.5 MAGNIFICENT STARS that just keep me looking forward to another one of her enjoyable creations!!**THANKS to the author for providing me a copy of her book for an honest review**

    It is no secret I LOVE Karen-Anne Stewart!! She writes characters like no other! I fall in love with her men instantly=) Can you say BOOK BOYFRIEND!! Jensen is another example of me falling fast and hard! He is the perfect male. This story was unique and different from KAS previous books (you should DEF check those out too!) and she proved that she can do different with Feel. I am a forever fan=)One of the things I love about how KAS writes is the way she can describe something with so much detail and can do it in a different way than anyone else! This example of a lip bite (how many times has someone wrote about a girl biting her lip?!?) just proves it. To me this is perfect!!"Her bottom lip starts to tremble before it’s quickly sent back to its persecutor and bit so hard, I flinch for her and quickly rub my thumb against the punished flesh, freeing the tender skin before it begins to bleed."Read this!!!!

    Feel by Karen-Anne Stewart is the story of Saige, who, thanks to her supernatural ability, can feel the emotions of those around her. Kind of like an empath. But that’s not all she can do. She can also sense death. And more often than not, this ability gets her into real trouble.Jenson Rider, Saige’s childhood love, deserted her when he shouldn’t have and his one decision led to a series of events that have forever embedded themselves into Saige’s mind.I think the most important part of this book is to properly understand the backstories of the characters. I was a bit confused—okay, a lot confused—at the beginning of the book, owing to the fact that not everything was clear and I had little to no knowledge of what was happening. But as I moved along the story, the individual events started making sense and I was addicted to the book, unable to put it down.A series of parallel stories continue to run alongside the main story itself but once you get past the first 20%, pieces of the dual narration seem to fit together seamlessly. One other thing I absolutely loved about this book? The side characters. They were so, so involved and not at all phony so I know that the author has done a fantastic job creating a good background for them too.If I were to talk about Saige alone, then I’d say I had a little difficulty understanding her. The entire first part of the book, she was both jittery and scared. Quite understandable, of course, because as shunned from society as she was, she didn’t quite seem to be comfortable in her own skin too. It took me quite a few chapters to understand exactly how her ability worked and just how much she despised her “gift.”But the quiet, shy girl seemed to dissolve right in front of my eyes as soon as Jenson entered. She became a sassy, punch-throwing, swearing super-chick. That seemed to be quite a bit of a stretch for me, considering the reason for which Jenson left her and how she should have hated him, childhood love notwithstanding. Saige’s character showed a lot of bipolarity when it came to her emotions throughout the book; Whether that was because of the fact that she was an empath or that was just her personality remains unknown.Jenson, on the other hand, I really didn’t like. He’s all inked and wannabe-badass and romantic and all, but he seems to be defined by his love for Saige. Their kind of love kind of rules him, breaks him, hell, his love for Saige is what makes him. Now, while I don’t think this is a necessarily bad thing, but it’s just something that doesn’t work for me. It seems too…I dunno, obsessive?*shrugs*Inspite of all my qualms about these two main characters, I still loved the story, especially the dark, creepy-as-fuck parts. There were struggles and bombings and kidnappings and of course, some schmexy times! Like I said, I’d love to read more about the side-characters, especially Andy and Sam. Andy was the best :P*I was provided a free ecopy of this book in exchange of an honest review. This did not in any way, however, influence the content of this review.*

    Jensen was her savior, he appeared when Saige was overwhelmed by her “gift” of being a sensitive, he became her everything, her mentor, her protector and when he left, he took her heart with him, without looking back, even once. Stronger now, less innocent and hardened, Saige has made her own way in the world, doing well, mostly for several years, and then Jensen returned. Feel is a maelstrom of emotional twisters, intense heat and fierce bonds that tie people together from the depths of their very souls.Imagine being bombarded with others’ emotions, for Saige has caused her life to be a living nightmare, dark and abusive, tormenting. It was Jensen who saved her, and it was Jensen who broke her, but will Jensen be able to put her back together again? Does he have the strength? Can he pierce the wall of stubbornness and breach Saige’s survival instincts? Two hearts, one love, a world filled with darkness and souls that need to be bared.Karen-Anne Stewart has dipped into her magic inkwell again and made her mark in the paranormal romance genre with Feel. With her signature remarkable world and character building, Ms. Stewart has concocted a heart-wrenching tale that even the most hardened heart with melt to. Sharing POVs with both Jensen and Saige enhances that feeling of being right with them, in turn wanting to shake them and hug them, tough as they may think they are. The touch of the paranormal is well-placed, well-depicted and well, awesome! The romance? Let’s just say sometimes love hurts more than it should and Karen-Anne Stewart is “write” there to bring it to life.I received an ARC edition from Karen-Anne Stewart in exchange for my honest review.

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review4.5 EMOTIONALLY CONSUMING STARS!“No woman has ever made me feel anything. Only Saige. She makes me feel everything.” - JensenFirst off, I have to say I adore Ms. Srewart! She has a very unique and beautiful way with words in her writing. She easily creates a practically flawless picture perfect story, bringing you right into the characters world without the reader even realizing it! I became addicted to her books after reading a few of her other works (The Rain Trilogy series & Ash to Steele.) I highly recommend that you read her stories! When I was contacted by the author to read FEEL I was so thrilled at the opportunity, but somewhat nervous all at the same time simply because “paranormal romance” isn’t my cup of tea. When I started to read FEEL, I was thinking in my head that this story will likely revolve around ghosts, hauntings, afterlife situations or something related to that extent. To my surprise, the paranormal premise revolved around gifted talents, which to me isn’t too farfetched of an idea and it worked well.This book starts off with Saige and Jensen as young children meeting each other for the very first time. From that point on, the story progresses very smoothly in the present time, 13 years later. I just could not put this book away! There is something special between Jensen and Saige that just draws the reader in. I fell 100% in love with both characters. Jensen and Saige share a love that everyone longs to find with another person in their own life.“Hell I’d kill and die for this girl without the slightest hesitation. Seeing her hurting fucking kills me.” – JensenThis story switches POV’s each chapter, so the reader gets a clear picture on both sides of their lives and feelings. Ms. Stewart makes the story line very easy to follow and everything flows at a perfect pace. If you are a lover of LOVE, then you MUST give FEEL a chance! FEEL will bring out emotions that make for a phenomenal story and I promise that you’ll not want this story to end once you start it! Most of all, you will FEEL! I give FEEL, 4.5 EMOTIONALLY CONSUMING STARS!XOXOJamie, The Book Enthusiast

    So, this was a bit of a change in genre for this author but paranormal is right up my alley so I had to jump in and give this a go... :) This is one that will appeal very strongly to the New Adult audience... lots of shmexy time and angst mixed with suspense and action. Saige has a gift... she can feel the emotions of those around her. Everyone except for Jensen... he was always her source of safety and comfort. Having met as children, Jensen has always stepped in to be her Savior/Superman and protect her from the world as much as possible. Until one day he was forced to send her away in order to protect her gifts from being discovered. They come back together again several years later by a twist of fate as they are both trying to hunt down a dangerous bomber. Jensen is now traveling along with his friend Andy. And, the three of them end up going on the hunt together. As they work together, Saige and Jensen slowly re-discover each other and the heat is turned up a notch! I thought this was a very interesting premise for a story... one that I would recommend for fans of romantic suspense mixed with a dash of paranormal! ARC was provided for the upcoming blog tour!

    December 13-2014I haven't read a 5-star book in a while. A few 4.5's but not a 5. Reading the description, I was imagining this book as a sweet romance where the love of her life helps her cope with an ability or a gift. What you get with this is SO much more. You totally have that but the reason for their reunion and the continuing storyline of that throughout the book is sooooo GOOOD. there is so much angst in this book that I couldn't sit still. I'm sure others have already given some things away in their reviews but I don't want to outline the storyline in any detail because I think that gives away some of the excitement in this book. Honestly there were times that I was just sitting there like WHAT IN THE HELL IS HAPPENING? I just HAD to find out. This is definitely the best type of story to me: likeable female, totttaaallly likeable male, some laugh out loud moments (thank you Andy), awesome side characters and such angst that NO LIE had my heart pounding in my chest. Karen-Anne Stewart knows how to write some of the best male leads and knows how to grab your attention. This is the best book I have read in a while and is definitely going to my favourites list. I strongly recommend reading this book!!Thank you so so much K-Anne for gifting me a copy of your book for an honest review. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!--------------------------------------------August 18th, 2015Read this book for a second time and it's just as friggen amazing as the first! Karen-Anne is such an amazing writer!!

    Feel by Karen-Anne Stewart is a book written in one of my favorite genres. One I tend to get lost in and never want to leave. Saige and Jensen’s story sucked me in from the very first page. I instantly fell in love with this couple and this book. This was a thrilling story filled with plenty of action and adventure, and my favorite of them all true unconditional love. Saige has a gift where she can feel emotions. Her gift has plagued her life with sorrow and regret. She meets Jensen as a child the one person who she can’t read. Saige and Jensen quickly become friends and grow up together. He shows her how to control her gift and becomes the one person she can trust. When he suddenly removes himself from her life, she is devastated. Fast forward a few years and Saige is away at college. She suddenly starts having disturbing dreams of the near future. She’s had visions like these before and knows it’s a matter of time before they become a reality. She decides she needs to resolve her vision and seeks out the individual haunting them. A very dangerous and sadistic man. She is suddenly thrown in a van and reunited with the one person she truly has cared about. She is angry and relieved to see Jensen. She doesn’t trust Jensen, but her feelings for him are undeniable. He cares for her yet the secrets he holds can break them both. One thing they know is that they will need to work together to stop the event she dreamed of. Maybe creating a few more dreams of their own. Jensen and Saige had such an emotional story. He saved her in so many ways as a child and as an adult. The bullying she experienced was heartbreaking. These two were both thrown into a life they had to figure out all by themselves. They had a unique connection that only they could understand. This couple were a force to be reckoned with, both strong and unwavering. These two possibly could change the world for the better. Mystery, suspense, and love this book had it all. This was one book that certainly will fall in love with. Mary

    From the moment she was born, Saige knew she was different. She experienced people's feelings in such a way that sometimes left her feeling lonely and bereft. For her, feeling what everyone else feels has become the norm. To make matters worse, she can also deduce when someone's end is near. Deep inside, she wants nothing more than to have a normal life. One where she won't feel as many of the feelings she experiences each and every day.Her world is soon turned topsy-turvy as it collides with that of a killer intent on hurting as many people as possible. Saige knows that she can't allow what the killer wants to happen. There are too many lives at stake. Hers, included. Somehow, some way, she will thwart his plans, or die trying in the process.As tensions rise, Saige soon comes face to face with the one person who made her life complete. Though they've spent years apart, there's no denying that they still care for one another. The fact that the killer has brought them together isn't lost on either of them. In order to make the world a better place, she and Jensen will have to unite in the hopes of stopping the madman. The question is, will they be able to forgive each others past indiscretions when the time comes?A truly explosive story, Feel is both bittersweet and thrilling at the same time. We get to experience Saige's ups and downs as she tries to assert herself in the world she lives in. It honestly sucks that she's had to put up with so many disappointments, though. Jensen complements her uncertainty, however, and boosts her up whenever needed. I hope we get to see more of these two lovely characters. I somehow think their story isn't quite finished yet. Definitely a good read!

    I was honoured to review this book by Karen-Anne her work just keeps on getting better and better and not afraid to tackle any subject! I'm a big Fan, Always written with sensitivity and a great understanding that she passes on in her writing skills to the reader. The paranormal topic in this case wasn't just the heroin but a whole gang with an ability of their own.I've read a select few that I've enjoy regardless of the paranormal element and Feel was one of those MUST READ.A second-chance romance written in alternative points of view. Full of drama, twists written beautiful and an amazing insight into the characters lives. And some VERY HOT scenes.Saige: A kickass-determined -thrill-junkie that can ride a motor bike and not forgetting is an Empath. Jensen: Is just dreamy HOT-TATTOOED-TALENTED runs a motorbike shop and hunts down psychopaths, (yeah damn hot lady's)For some reason Saige Can't Feel him but that's an ability all by its self, she can read his expressions like a book though. I had some watery eye moments and laugh out loud ones, with the banter between Saige and Andy. The emotions through this book you can not help but feel them. I'm hoping the other characters get a chance to tell their story, I feel like I know them already! Hope it's not the end for this gang.5/5 story line5/5 for the cover5/5 attention to detail5/5 flow of the book5/5 secondary character5/5 main CharactersMusic to put to this book: One Republic - NaiveFeel Again track sums up Sagie and Jensen's love and a lot more! Loved it! Well recommend. <3 A big thank you to Karen-Anne <3

    This review was first published at M's Bookshelf - http://mssbookshelf.blogspot.beKaren-Anne has done it again. Yet again she had me completely captivated and a little (book) hungover. Her characters are yet again so detailed, so complex, yet so easy to love. I have a soft spot for her female characters: beautiful, independent and impressively strong woman with a soft side that wants and needs to be protected. Meet Saige. And then there's Jensen... I mean, what can I say? He's a strong, stubborn, protective piece of man candy, not too proud to admit he's completely and utterly owned by the woman he loves. Sigh.It took me a quite a few chapters to really get into the story, but all of a sudden, from one page to the next, I was hooked. I could not stop reading and I forgot all about my surroundings - completely captivated by these character's journey. Feel takes you on an emotional roller coaster and will leave you breathless.[I do find the book cover a bit misleading. Somehow it doesn't portray the "feel" (haha) of the book.]There's just something so beautiful about the unconditional, passionate love against such an ugly backdrop of abuse and violence in Karen-Anne's novels. She's not afraid to show the ugly, which makes these characters and their love and friendship all the more beautiful and intense.

    I was super excited when KAS asked me to read and review her new book, every book I have read by KAS so far I have loved. She totally draws you in to the story and its all you can think about... Feel was no different...I loved Jensen and Saige from the start, I could tell how much they had been through together even before I was a quarter of the way through the book! Being told from both Jensen and Saige's POV's, being able to get inside both their heads made it that much more emotional to read...the good times and the bad times. I felt connected to them throughout. Andy was a great character, he certainly made me laugh with his wicked sense of humour.The story was intense, I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect of it...It was different to all the other books I have read by KAS. It was alot of elements all put together which made for a fantastic read...Love story, Edge of your seat action, paranormal abilities, and laughs thrown in too with the brilliant banter between characters! Hats off to you KAS, you have done it again, another five star read :-)I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review, Thank you.

    I think this book is really engaging from the beginning. You feel for the character in the first few chapters. I know how it feels to lose people close to you. Saige can FFEL things better than other people and that gets her into trouble when she tries to help people, as you can imagine it would. This is great book and takes you on a journey with Saige and Jensen. The love story in this book is also very heartwarming and great to be sucked into their story with them. I enjoyed this book very much. *I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review* thank you Karen-Anne Stewart for such a great book!

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."Feel" was the first book I've read written by Karen Anne Stewart and what a phenomenal treat it was.Jensen has been Saige's savior since he came to her rescue on the school playground. Saige is different to her peers; and hence an easy target for bullies, but Jensen doesn't see what the others do and he accepts Saige for her who she is, quirks and all. From that day forward they're inseparable...Saige is a beautiful person, and I'm attracted to her character right from the start. Her love of the violin warms my heart, having played it myself for many years. I feel and understand her passion for it.As a child, my heart aches for her. Not only does she suffer at the hands of her peers, but her parents are cruel and an total waste of oxygen! Saige has a gift, she's a sensitive, meaning she feels/absorbs the emotions of those around her and she also can sense death, usually premonitions of death come to her in her sleep. It's this very gift that will put her in harms way of a "gifted" bomber!Jensen was the love of her life and they seemed so happy, always together, but it ends tragically one day when Jensen sends her away. She doesn't realize it was to protect her, and she holds a lot of resentment and hurt in her heart. She also experienced atrocities at the hands of so called doctors when she was institutionalized, and she also holds Jensen responsible for this. She feels he deserted her. This girl carries a lot of hurt in her heart, but I'm sure Jensen will be her healing balm at the end of the day.Jensen, my latest book boyfriend! I fell in love with him the moment he came to Saige's rescue! From the very start he's protective of her, and he accepts her as she is and helps her "control" her gift, use it to her advantage if you like. Like Saige, the relationship with his family is strained but at least they're not cruel like hers. When Jensen sent Saige away all those years ago it was to protect her, but it was the hardest thing he's ever had to do and he's yearned for her ever since!Andy is Jensen's best friend and "co-worker", and like Saige and other members of the group he's gifted. He had the task of bringing Saige in, and their relationship is a love/hate one. They had me giggling on more than one occasion. Andy is a character with a big ego, but his heart is even bigger.Jensen and his team are trying to track a bomber who happens to be a gifted one as well, which makes him even more dangerous. They need to find him and end his reign of terror. Saige can feel him, and she has dreams of her roommates death, and a bombing at the college. Sadly she can't save her, and with the threat being so close, she ends up staying with Jensen.Jensen suffers a tragic loss at the hand of the bomber, and then the plot twist comes when we see how he connects with Saige!There were a few occasions that my nerves were shattered and I held my breath with great fear and anxiety, but there were also times where I was brought to my knees and crying into my trusted Kleenex.When Saige picks up the violin and plays again, I hit out in goose bumps and was overwhelmed with emotion.I loved every page of "Feel", and from what I can see this isn't her normal genre, but she rocked it for sure!Karen Anne Stewart has a gift to make you feel, no pun intended!This was one of my favorite reads for 2014!A hell yeah 5 bomb read!Reviewed by Heidi

    This is a exciting and lovely book. the writing is able to portray to the reader the feelings that Saige was feeling and how Andy did his talent but we also saw how Jensen was a good guy flawed but good. Even when actions that he meant to be to protect Saige and they turned out to be dangerous you knew his intentions were good.4 years earlier he let Saige go and that was the hardest thing for him but he was trying to protect her. Protect her from those who would use her powers for selfish reasons. You feel sad and want to see Saige be happy after you hear her past.Now 4 yrs later and they are together. Together because of a bomber. A bomber with a agenda. An agenda that started with a purpose and changed to revenge. Saige had some scary and nail biting moments when the bomber with his mad crazy scary skilz was able to get under Saige’s skin. Ms. Stewart was able to through her descriptions have us feel each nervewracking moments. Each nail Saige wanted to bite you did. A great way to keep the reader rivoted is done through those moments.Now Jensen, Saige, Andy and Jensen’s friends were chasing a bomber and that bomber is on a revenge mission. And what revenge he gets. At one point you just want to cry for Jensen. Everything is almost taken from him. He hangs on by a thread and it is Saige that pulls him back.Saige and Jensen are so sweet together. You can see that they are meant to be. Saige at first due to the past resists but as she sees Jensen for who he is she relents. Jensen really is a tender caring guy who does everything with Saige in mind. these two are so tender and fun together. The relationship that is a hoot to read the interactions of are Saige and Andy. The way they rib each other is great.Each character is unique and has their own personality that shines through. You see how that this group is a family and that they stick together no matter what. The one you fall for of Jensen’s friends is Andy. When you read what he did for Jensen your heart is stolen.A book about rekindling love and forgiveness. About revenge and seeking retribution and also finding acceptance. Acceptance of your uniqueness, acceptance of who you are and being loved for you and not your skill set. This is a fast paced thrilling book with romance tossed in as we watch Saige and Jensen find each other again while chasing and trying to stop a bomber.

    I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.This story is written from the first perspective but it also switches POV at relevant points so you get the view from both Saige and Jensen. The back stories for both of these main characters is done gently so you are not inundated at one go. From the get go though I was wondering just why Jensen had left her when it was so obvious that they belonged together. When I learnt of where he thought she'd gone as opposed to where she ended up, it was awful and I had to remind myself that I was reading a story!This is an incredibly in-depth tale with lots of characters for you to learn about and love or hate as in Griffin's case. I love the good guys, I really do and the different ones in Jensen's 'other' family are just brilliant. I want Andy as my big brother please! However, Griffin is so incredibly well-written he will make your skin crawl whenever he is mentioned. To make a character so evil and to get across with the written word is simply amazing and I loved/hated reading about him! Trust me, he has no redeeming qualities. These characters are all amazing though and I would to read more about them (hint hint!).The re-making of the relationship between Saige and Jensen is tender, heartbreaking, funny and sassy at the same time. This may come out sounding wrong but I love Saige's mouth! She is not prepared to just sit back and take the easy option and will give as good as she gets, both physically and verbally. I will admit to cheering out loud when she punched Amira!!This is Paranormal Romantic Suspense at it's best. The romance was beautifully written with them taking their time to rebuild trust. The suspense of not knowing when and where will keep you turning the pages to continue your love/hate relationship with Griffin. There are parts of this story that will bring a tear to your eye - trust me, you'll know which parts I'm talking about when you get to them. This book simply has it all and I highly recommend it for all fans of PNR and Suspense.

    >Review - Feel>I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock. I am an independent reviewer. This is a standalone book that ends in an HEA.>Saige is a college age woman with paranormal abilities. She can sense when death will occur, has dreams that portend the future and absorbs the feelings of those around her. Ridiculed and abused from her earliest childhood for being different, she is saved by Jensen. Jensen protects and fights for Saige until he tries to set her free, to live her own life. Little does Jensen know that Saige spent the 4 years away from him forced and tortured in an institution. Her parents ashamed of her. She escapes and enrolls in college, trying be "normal".>A chance feeling of unspeakable evil on her college campus, reunites Saige and Jensen. Jensen realizes he never should have left Saige and begins his attempt at a reconciliation. Jensen's friend, Andy, is the comic relief of the story. His banter with Saige is hysterical. Together, Andy, Saige and Jensen track this evil madman and try to stop him. I loved meeting the rest of Jensen's buddies and seeing them all interact. The backstory of Saige and Jensen, explaining why Jensen left her, what happened at the institution and the tie between the evil and Jensen's dad, is very well done. I hate going back in time so much, the reader forgets what's going on in the story, but this author went back just enough to explain things. Very well done.>The relationship between Saige and Jensen progresses so sweetly. The only thing I didn't buy was Jensen saying he turned into a man whore, trying to forget Saige. It just wasn't in his make up. The romance was hot, but Jensen constantly thinking about how much he loves Saige, got old. All in all, the story was nonstop action, very romantic and one wild ride.> This book is for an adult audience due to violence and sexual situations.

    *sigh* And I’m done with another great Karen-Anne Stewart book.Karen-Anne is one of those authors who when a new book is released, I don’t even need to see it. I know I want to read it. Feel was no exception. I jumped on this one as soon as I heard about it.From the start my heart hurt for Saige as a child. The things she went through … you know there are kids daily, in real life, going through what Saige went through and that breaks my heart. She was such a beautifully written character right from the first page. I really liked her. She was passionate while she was reserved with people because of the way she was treated. She also now knows how to defend herself and quick to use it when she is in danger. She isn’t one to shirk back when she needs to stand up for herself as an adult.When Jensen showed back up I couldn’t wait to get to why he sent her away, what happened between them that ended things. I ended up loving him too and hoping these two would make it to the end of the book. I was really hoping most of the characters would make it to the end. This was an exciting journey, from one moment to the next you were holding your breath that everyone would make it through.The chemistry between Jensen and Saige is so strong, it makes you wonder how they have spent 4 years apart from each other period. Like I said earlier, I couldn’t wait to find out what the reason was, it had to have been huge to tear these two from each other. When I got to that part, I completely understood why Saige was not jumping up and down in excitement over Jensen’s return. She went through hell.I loved it. Feel is the perfect title for this book, from the characters and what they do, to how we readers are so emotionally involved when reading it. Great book!Thank you so much for my copy of Feel! I can’t wait to see what Karen-Anne Stewart is releasing next!

    This book has EVERYTHING a fantastic book should be. Karen-Anne did a phenomenal job. Feel made me FEEL, it was a rollercoaster ride which had me laughing, crying and sitting at the edge of my seat from page to page. Feel is a paranormal romance with mystery and drama, this book could quite easily be the first book in a series. The characters are very relatable and likeable. I love the way K-Stew takes you into their minds so you get to experience everything they are feeling. She portrayed the most vile scenes poetically and beautifully descriptive. There were twists and turns that I did not see coming but enjoyed very much. Don't even get me started on the *ah hem* intimate scenes. If you don't like sex in your novels then skip through it. The scenes would make even Bon Jovi blush.There were so many classic lines in the book that I had to tweet about it, I have no idea how she does it, but they are simply beautiful. The romance is touching, the mystery is gripping, the writing is truly a work of art. Feel is a book that I would read again and again.Move over book boyfriends Jensen Rider is my new first love. Saige is a strong female character, definitely the type of woman that doesn't need rescuing. She punched out at least 2 characters in the book and it made me laugh out loud. Saige has a gift that she sees as a curse, because of it she is ridiculed and feel like an outsider. Who among us hasn't felt that way at some point? Like I said the characters are very relatable. Hats off to Karen-Anne for taking her writing to another level. I can't wait to read more work from her. I finished this book about 12am this morning and couldn't fall asleep till after 2am I was so jazzed.

    Anything Karen-Anne Stewart writes, I'm in! She has a talent that you won't want to miss out on!I am not the biggest fan of PNR (or so I thought?) having only read a couple but surprisingly liked them! I am telling you, this one is worth it….again, Karen-Anne Stewart! Need I say more?! I got so lost in this story that I really didn't consider it anything but…amazing!Starting out, you may find yourself a slightly confused just what it is, the main character Saige, is about. As you continue on (and I highly suggest that you do) you will see just how KAS sucks you in. The more I read, the harder it was to put the book down. Saige, growing up knowing she was different form most kids, having the ability to feel what others are feeling. She just wants to be normal, but can't turn this 'gift' off. Jensen, having come to Saige's rescue when they are young, can't help but want to protect her from harm, even if it means sending her away and giving her up to keep her away from those with ill intentions. Four years later, they cross paths…..Saige, Jensen, Andy and other secondary characters are on a mission and I found myself absorbed in their plight to save others from harm. Andy turned out to be my favorite! He brought some humor into a story that will bring you angst, love, suspense, humor and pretty much every other emotion one is capable of having. I love how KAS brings to life, everyone in the book. You can't help but 'Feel' the connection.*Although this is a stand-alone (Thank you!!) there is definitely room to make this into a series; so many great characters!!Thanks so much to Karen-Anne Stewart for allowing me to read and review her book.

    ** 3.5 Stars **Saige can feel the emotions of others; love, fear, anger, passion, etc. She has felt alone her entire life, like no one can ever truly understand her. She also has visions of future local dangers, and she has always tried to keep them to herself for fear of people thinking she was out of her mind. In the few instances where she’s warned people, they’ve all looked at her the same–like she’s batshit crazy. She met Jensen on the playground as a young girl when he saved her from some bullies, and it started a great friendship that later became something more. But before it could really become anything, she was sent away. By him.Jensen hasn’t had the best life. His father, who became disappointed and then non-complacent in him when he realized he had no special powers, was not a good guy. Jensen had dreams of growing up with Saige, being her everything, but when he learns his father’s plans, he has to send her away. But it broke his heart to do so. Especially when Saige didn’t have many people to rely on.Saige was at times immature, and she had a tough time figuring out Jensen when he was the only one she couldn’t feel. For someone who seeks out certain people by their actions (i.e. couples holding hands) for an uplift in her mood, she couldn’t see the guilt and love written all over Jensen. She was strong for what she suffered through, both in the past and in the present, but also very “blind” to her own abilities, what she could handle. I had a tough time connecting to either of the characters, but was still able to follow the story without it. It was a good story overall, although the dialogue was a bit young-sounding, but a refreshing paranormal story.**Received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review**

    *****I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*****Saige and Jensen. Jensen and Saige. There's no denying that they are meant for each other. But as much as I loved them there were some things that really bugged the hell out of me.**Spoilers ahead**Things that bugged me: -> Overuse of the words "damn" and "fucking". Seriously. There was one of these words in every page! I get that these words are used quite frequently by some people but there has to be a limit before it starts getting on your nerves.-> I felt the story had a few holes and certain things could have been explained better. Like: *Jensen's father: Did he himself have any special abilities? Why was he so hugely misunderstood? *Jensen's mother: What was her ability that forced her to do that to herself? A little more detail about her would have been nice. *The night Jensen sent Saige away: I thought this scene would be described in great detail. Instead it only got a few sentences.->Jensen loves Saige and Saige loves Jensen. Whenever one's in pain the other feels like ripping their heart out......How many times is this going to be said? I get it already!!!!!! The first few chapters were awesome: they were fighting and then they made up. The love story is very cute really but it got so repetitive I got bored. If not for the bomb action I would have been really frustrated.Things that I liked: ->The banter between Andy and Saige. ->The action->The fact that Saige drives a bike :P->Jensen's tattoos->His proposal to Saige in their field->The crewI really like love stories and Jensen and Saige were both crazily in love with each other. But this just didn't work for me.

    Feel is one of those books that hook you in right from the beginning, but also keeps you in its grips right until the end.I’ve read Ash to Steele, another book written by Karen-Anne Stewart so I already knew she was a good writer and I liked her style. However, Feel is different because it’s a paranormal romance mixed in with suspense. Paranormal is my first love so I absolutely loved it! I hope my friends can forgive me because I was ignoring them while reading this awesome book.But it just wasn’t the story that kept me enthralled. I loved the characters. Saige is one of those people you want to have as a friend, a friend you want to protect from a lousy life. I could not have imagined being her. Jensen, is just Jensen. Even after thirteen years apart he still loves Saige and all he wants to do is protect her.But there were also so many other characters to love. Andy made me laugh so many times. The other members of Jensen’s crew were also very likeable, each one contributed something special to make this special ‘family’. There were characters I definitely didn’t like. Is hate too strong a word to use? But these characters made a very good book even better. They had an impact on others’ lives and Griffin, in particular, had a very important part. The prologue sets up this book perfectly. It establishes the connection between Saige and Jensen but it still leaves room for the development of a romance between these soul mates. The epilogue is the icing on the cake and left me with a big smile on my face.I gave Feel 5 stars and I look forward to reading more books by this talented author.Written by Karen from A Thousand Lives Book Blog

    There is something to be said about a book that has a supernatural element to it but you forget that it is a supernatural story while reading it. The way the author put that supernatural side in it in such a way that made you forget about it was amazing. I loved reading the book knowing the characters have abilities and yet that not be the main focus of the book. And speaking of characters! Oh my god I loved them all. But Andy was my all time favorite. Saige got on my nerves a little bit. She always seemed to have some type of drama going on and I know that with her ability she isn’t comfortable around others but the whole bitchyness thing got old. Jensen was great. Loyal to a fault but also kind of self absorbed in ways.The plot was amazing. I kept thinking I had the book figured out, but then the author would just throw a curve ball in at me and leave me feeling gutless. The amount of shit this group of friends go through is astounding, and for them all to come out ok in the end is unheard of, but I LOVED it! I couldn’t stand the thought of the author killing any of the characters off! The action of this book keeps you on the edge of your seat! Trust me! You don’t want to miss this one!

    I do not read much paranormal anymore, never mind new adult paranormal romance, but there was something about this book that just drew me in. The synopsis is so intriguing, but then reading the book i was captivated. Jensen and Saige are drawn together and then pulled apart, I loved Jensen he was adorable but in a really manly way not all wimpy by the way. Saige is a strong character who deals with a lot through this story, I can understand her cautiousness with Jensen returning, and i felt for her how much she 'feels' everything. The book moves around slightly telling the back story and i got a bit confused slightly that may be just me, but it did not distract one bit from the story. By the way some steamy scenes between Jensen and Saige make up for the confusion i had at one point, i was like wow in those scenes so well written.There was well rounded supporting characters through the story which added to its depth and enjoyment. I will be looking into more Karen-Ann Stewart books in the future as this is the first book of hers i have read and i feel i have been missing out, but i am glad i have found her work now.
