The Hero: Captain Ryland Miller – he was in the special forces, he and his men volunteered for a special project that centered around research and developing psychic abilities in a group of elite soldiers. They were called ghost walkers because they can get in and out of situations without making a sound. They used telepathy to talk to each other on missions. However, something went wrong and their psychic abilities have become too strong and has caused severe headaches and killed two of his team.

The heroine: Lily Whitney – daughter of billionaire doctor Peter Whitney, Lily is also a doctor in her own right. Lily has her own psychic abilities and has since she was very young, so has learned how to handle them and dampen them by blocking out all the voices and white noise when she is around other people.

The Story: Doctor Peter Whitney and Colonel Higgens have been in charge of the program to create psychic super soldiers. When things with the program start to get out of hand and two of the soldiers die, they separate the rest of the group and lock them up because they became too powerful and dangerous. Peter brings Lily in on the research where she meets Ryland and there is an immediate connection between the two of them.

The book is told in dual points of view via solo narration by Tom Stechschulte. He isn’t the best narrator, but isn’t the worst either. His voice is nice and deep which I like, but he sounds a bit old for the special forces soldiers. Also he wasn’t that great at doing different voices for the different men. I liked the story though, and he wasn’t bad so there is that.

The story centers around the death of Lily’s father and the secrets he kept about the project and about Lily herself. There was plenty of action, since the soldiers escape from where they were being held and there was a lot of mystery about who killed her father and what exactly they were doing to the soldiers. The romance was good, but the story took precedence over over the romance. There were some steamy scenes, of course and there was plenty of chemistry between the two main characters.
