Source: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

"Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.
Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it."

My Thoughts:


Intangible is a quick and fun read that is perfect for fans of the paranormal. I say paranormal and not pararomance, because a romantic relationship is not the center or the driving force of the story. The driving force belongs to the relationship between twins Sera and Luke and all of the problems that follow them because of their powers. Intangible will give you characters that are easy to fall in love with and you will easily become invested in their story.


Unlike many books, Intangible switches character perspectives quite a bit. This enables the reader to see different aspects of the story and grasp what is going on at different points; as opposed to being stuck in the bubble of the main protagonist. It was nice to get inside of all the characters heads, even if it was a bit confusing in the beginning. Never fear, you will get used to the changing perspectives.

My favorite aspect of the book was the relationship between Luke and Sera. Not only are they siblings, but it is clear that they are also best friends. Their banter was the best part of the book and they really do come across as two halves of one whole. It was nice to see the focus of a book be on a relationship like this as opposed to a romantic one.

Meyers created a bunch of lovable characters, but I do not want to go into too much and ruin the book for everyone, so I am going to focus on my favorite and that is Marc. Now if you read the book that will probably surprise you, but please just bear with me. Marc is my favorite because of his flaws. He is far from perfect and therefore realistic. He is clearly trapped in a bad situation and he cannot see any way out. It is hard not to feel sorry for him, well at least it was for me. I would go from wanting to smack him one minute to wanting to hug him the next. He is not my favorite because he is the perfect, lovable, “OMG” character, but because he seemed the most human to me.

While I truly enjoyed Intangible, I do have some reservations. The ending felt a little bit dragged out to me. I would be reading, feel like the climax was on its way, and then it wasn’t. While it did build up the anticipation, it also frustrated me. I was able to guess some of the outcome and I just wanted it to happen already. I really don’t know if I just made any sense at all, but I hope I did.

Overall, Intangible is a great summer read. Grab the book and go spend the day at the beach with it. It is fun and enjoyable and I am really glad I read this book. I will definitely be reading the sequel; and now I wait.

  3. Thanks for the review. It really annoys me when I can predict what's going to happen in a book; it spoils everything for me. Nevertheless, it does still sound like a good book, so I shall be giving it a go. :)
