Slave to Sensation
Slave to Sensation | Nalini Singh
THE FIRST PSY/CHANGELING NOVEL from the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian...The book that Christine Feehan called "a must-read for all of my fans."In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…

I spent pretty much all of my sleep time last night reading this, so I guess I do still like this series. Onwards with the reread/catch up.

As a teen, I read big authors and loved them, like Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and JK Rowling. In my 20s, all three of them (at least to me) have tried to single handedly ruin their franchises. So, I've stayed away from big time authors in fear of heartbreak around book 15 or so. But I'm going back today. Here's hoping!!

HOTPock3tt The kiss quotient author Helen Hoang recommended this book in a podcast! ☺️ She said it was one of her faves growing up... so I was a bit curious. Might try this out too. 3w
theresidentromantic @HOTPock3tt And one of my new authors, Talia Halibert recommended both Helen Hoang and this series, lol! I have Hoang's books on hold lists with the library. 3w
HOTPock3tt @theresidentromantic “The kiss Quotient” is amazing!! Well written & sexy. I didn‘t like “The bride test” quite as much, but it was still really good. Both have characters you can‘t help but want to know more about. Hoang‘s books are definitely worth checking out 😎 (edited) 3w

theresidentromantic @HOTPock3tt That's good to know!! I really like out of the box characters, the summary for the kiss quotient reminded me a lot of the main herione for simple faith, a book from my favorite author. 3w
theresidentromantic @CoverToCoverGirl Have you read these? This book is on 🔥🔥🔥 I'm obsessed already and I've only been listening for half the work day. 3w
CoverToCoverGirl No I‘ve never listened to or read anything by this author... checking it out now though. 3w
CoverToCoverGirl It‘s read by the same person that did The MacKenzie series ❤️❤️❤️ adding it to my wants on audible, thanks for the recommendation! 😁. The whole premise sounds very good. 3w
CoverToCoverGirl Whoa.. 17 books in this series 😳😉 3w
theresidentromantic @CoverToCoverGirl and there are spin offs! It's what prompted my long, famous romance series rant. But I'm so hopeful. Angela Dawe does things to the word darling 😍😍 *dreamy sigh* 3w

This wasn't the most original story I've ever read, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I did't like the male main character at all, or at least not in context of the relationship of the protagonists. However, I think, especially people that are into erotic romance, will have a good time reading this book.
🌟🌟🌟 3/5

Thank you again @LittleBug for giving me this book! I think in future I won't completely avoid the romance section anymore.

Caroline2 Hmm, although I‘d like to take the credit I didn‘t give you that book I‘m afraid! 🤷‍♀️ 5mo

tina_b.ooks @LittleBug I really liked the Psy-Changeling world and their different society. I actually put "Visions of Heat" on my TBR-List, because I'm interested in learning more about the world. 5mo

Mehso-so

I mostly listened this one, and the narration was good, but this series just isn't for me. I love a fictional (emphasis on fictional) alpha male, but I never really got into the romance. I dug the serial killer subplot, but it's not well fleshed out and the ending to it is super abrupt and secondhand. It was a quick read, but I won't be continuing with the series.

LaurenReads Sorry it wasn‘t for you, this is one of my favorite series ever (but it‘s been a LONG time since I read this one) Have you tried her new contemporary romances? I liked those too. 6mo
Jas16 Good to know. I will continue to put starting this series off. 6mo
GlassAsDiamonds Accurate review I think, unfortunately! I found the latter books in the series *much* better. I‘m a fan of her Guildhunter series and somehow ended up with some of the novellas for this one by attrition. They‘re great but later in the timeline. These early books are *painful* for the changelings but the character development through the series is amazing. @Jas16 - ditto! Maybe start with the novellas? @LaurenReads - Singh FTW? 😊♥️😊 6mo

Finished my last book of the year!! And it was really good! Essentially a paranormal romance, with changelings (essentially were-leopards) and the Psy (people taught to delete their emotions). There‘s a serial killer afoot and they need to figure out who the killer is! Lucas and Sascha‘s story is fantastic!

Now off to celebrate the New Year! Happy New Year everyone! 🥳🥳

Aren‘t books in general underrated? 😉
However, if I have to choose, I‘d go with Nalini Singh‘s Psy-Changeling Series 💜💜

Did I mention that I really love these books?🙈🤣🙈

I was in the mood for a paranormal romance, so I checked out another book in this series from the library the other day, but there was too much backstory I was missing. Luckily, this first in the series was available on Libby. It started real rough, I almost bailed and I‘m so glad I didn‘t because I‘m completely sucked into the world. I went and put the rest of the series on hold already!! This was exactly what I was craving. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

LibrarianJen I love this series, but yes, it‘s best read in order because each book builds on the story. 1y

Here‘s to 2017! And the first audiobook of 2018... a reread from 2017, ha 😅. I realized after binging this series hard that I was getting confused by my memory of prequels not lining up with events later books said had happened. A good excuse to half listen to these again when doing data entry, amiright? #reread #2017inBooks

I had heard excellent things about this series and it was exactly what I needed to pull me out of a massive reading slump. I can't remember the last time I was so sucked into a world that I fell asleep reading because I refused to put down the book. I adored the characters and was intrigued by the politics. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next. I have the next four on order from Thriftbooks, so I have to (impatiently) wait to find out.

Done and only one day overdue! I loved it--paranormal romance isn't really my thing, I've not been jazzed about it since Twilight. I mean, I like paranormal, and I like romance, but I don't usually like them together. But I enjoyed the way the Psi and the changeling worlds are built and I've gone ahead and put book 2 on hold!

Having an impossible time concentrating in my post-vacation brain... So I binged this paranormal romance instead. I may enjoy it more than the archangels series by the same author, and I totally finished it in about one sitting. As much of a guilty pleasure as this flower thing made with our towels... And yes, my furtive reading-not-working was as big a source of amusement for the S.O. as my shedding of blossoms when I went to towel off.

I finished the Carol Burnett book and immediately started on another ebook. Needless to say I started it too late at night so I didn't get enough sleep, but I finished the book. This was a great recommendation from the Get Booked Podcast an adult paranormal romance. I certainly sunk my teeth into this one and had a purrrrfectly fun time. Warning this one is a bit steamy 🐯

LaurenReads The whole series is awesome! 3y
Dragon I was afraid of that @LaurenReads I'm probably going to have to read them all 💚 3y

I love Nalini Singh. The psy-changeling series has an overarching theme of the breakdown of a program known as silence, and the changing powers in a world currently ruled by the psy. However each book focuses on the relationship of a new couple, meaning they can be read as standalones.
Perfect read for fans of paranormal romance, shape shifters, and alpha males.

Paranormal romances are not generally my bag (for various reasons) so I'd never tried Nalini Singh (also not a fan of the title). But @Amanda pitched it on Get Booked and did a way better job than the blurb. This is good, the world is interesting, maybe too plotty since a Book 1 but I'll read more.
