Out of darkness and danger

You can't hide your secrets from Lathan Montgomery—he can read your darkest memories. And while his special abilities are invaluable in the FBI's hunt for a serial killer, he has no way to avoid the pain that brings him. Until he is drawn to courageous, down-on-her-luck Evanee Brown and finds himself able to offer her something he's never offered another human being: himself.

Dawns a unique and powerful love

Nightmares are nothing new to Evanee Brown. But once she meets Lathan, they plummet into the realm of the macabre. Murder victims are reaching from beyond the grave to give Evanee evidence that could help Lathan bring a terrifying killer to justice. Together, they could forge an indomitable partnership to thwart violence, abuse, and death—if they survive the forces that seek to tear them apart.

My rating:

DNF @ 11%

Because it's the same as the previous book in this series...Boy is screwed up because of his unusual ability, boy finds girl who makes the unusual ability bearable, boy saves girl from abuse/torture/take-your-pick, insta-attraction blooms, girl dreams of murder...

The only difference is the obvious "tactile" proof resulting from Evanee's dreams, Lathan's ability being different from Xander's, and Lathan lacking Xander's snarkiness.

Otherwise, this one was following the template set by the first one. Didn't grab my attention, didn't keep my attention, so I moved on.
