Within The Mind by Alice Winters
Seneca is the complete package. He’s smart, sexy, and confident, much to Chevy’s annoyance. They’ve worked with each other for two years, and even though Chevy might secretly find his partner charming and attractive, playful harassment is all they have.
Chevy was born with a unique gift that allows him to go into the memories of others. As detective, he uses this ability to find peace for victims who have been hurt or attacked. He delves into their memories and can pick out minute details that will help them put the criminal behind bars.
But neither Chevy nor Seneca are prepared when they are asked to go into the mind of a serial killer in hopes of finding survivors. They are even more unprepared for the monsters they find inside the man’s mind. Drawn into a memory where it’s hard to figure out where the truth exists, they realize that there may be more to the serial killer than they originally thought. The dark world draws the two men together in a way they never dreamed.
It will take everything Chevy and Seneca can give to stop the darkness that could consume their minds. As the two are forced to face what is keeping them apart, together they realize that there’s more to the mind and heart than either of them know.
Within the Mind is a 90k word romantic suspense with lots of snark, an ominous gramophone, and finger cuddling, because we all know spooning isn’t as great as it sounds.

A thrilling read with the perfect balance of suspense and steam with an injection of Alice’s unique humour, this book is a sure-fire winner!!!
Again Alice keeps you on the edge of your seat!!
Everything Alice writes intrigues me and draws me in and this book is no exception! This book is set in a supernatural style contemporary world where there are people with unique gifts. This story follows gifted detectives Chevy and Seneca. Chevy is a ‘stick in the mud’ anti-social, introvert with the gift to go into peoples memories. His partner is overly friendly, flirty and hot, Seneca who has a smile and kind words for everyone. Seneca can mimic peoples gifts, so he can mimic Chevy’s gift and travel into peoples memories with Chevy to solve crimes and help victims. When they are faced with a psychopathic serial killer/talented artist, Chevy and Seneca are thrust into a dark game of cat and mouse where nothing is as it seems, and monsters in these memories are real and feed on their fears. This book kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the very end. A thrilling race and an altered perception kept me guessing.
As always Alice’s writing is thrilling, humorous and easy to read, a serious page turner! The romantic elements of this book are very much second to the race to catch the serial killer and is a very slow-burn, frienemies to love type situation. I felt there was more to Seneca than we were shown and the couple, sort of fell into instant love once they agreed to start dating, which was a bit weird. I loved Seneca’s lack of tact, flirting and how he is always pushing Chevy’s buttons. They are a simple case of opposites attract and I sincerely hope we will see more of Chevy and Seneca!!
A highly recommended author and story!! Loved it!
