Mind Sweeper by A.E. Jones: Review & Upcoming Release

finalrevised copy
Mind Sweeper
(Mind Sweeper, Book 1)
by A.E. Jones

Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Urban Fantasy
An angel, a demon and a vampire walk into a bar. Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it's just another day in the life of Kyle McKinley.

Kyle was born with the ability to erase memories, and the inability to keep her opinions to herself. She and her teammates – a vampire who looks like a sexy pirate with fangs, and a Shamat demon with a penchant for Italian pastries – provide supernatural damage control when humans see too much. Today’s problem? A sword-wielding angel and a demon had a supernatural smackdown during happy hour in a Cleveland bar, leaving behind a headless vampire and a dozen human witnesses.

This latest supernatural slip-up is attracting all kinds of attention. So much attention that the police step in, and Kyle has to deal with Joe Dalton, a know-it-all human with the sexiest turquoise eyes she has ever seen. Kyle has no room in her life for yet another human who will treat her like a freak. However, Dalton definitely makes her naughty parts sit up and take notice, and it’s more than mutual. But before they can act on their attraction, they must join forces to solve a dangerous puzzle. And when they uncover the truth, the apocalyptic ripple effect forces Kyle to make a choice. Learn to trust again, or risk losing everyone she cares about, including Dalton.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After spending her early years alone, Kyle has finally found a place to fit in. Working under cover for the Bureau of Supernatural Relations, her team is as close as family. Already challenged by a supernatural case of unexpected magnitude, Kyle isn't about to let the token human assigned to their unit change the dynamic of their team. But Joe Dalton doesn't seem to understand her message to quit while he's ahead, and a lot of that has to do with Kyle's own mixed signals!

Watching A.E. Jones post one teaser after another on her website had me excitedly waiting for this stories release. MIND SWEEPER looked to be an exciting romantic adventure filled with humor, and the reality of this story exceeded my expectations!

Setting the bar of excellence high, you would never guess that MIND SWEEPER is Jones' first publishing endeavor. Her characters are dynamic, with a perfect balance of emotional depth and engaging humor. Well written with a fast paced story line, the action, adventure, and suspense are interwoven with heart-wrenching dialog, laugh out loud humor and smoking hot chemistry.

I loved this story and would recommend it to anyone looking for a paranormal series that's fresh and engaging.

The Fledgling: A Novella
(Mind Sweeper, Book 2)
Publication Date: October 13th, 2014

A Mind Sweeper novella that peeks into Jean Luc Delacroix’s past. He has lived for centuries as a vampire, but the 1980’s may be his biggest challenge yet. How does a nearly four-hundred-year-old vampire survive a decade of shoulder pads, big hair, and music videos? Simple. Concentrate on his job.

Jean Luc and his demon partner, Misha, work for the Bureau of Supernatural Relations. Their task: keep humans from finding out about the supernatural. Not a simple thing to do when dead bodies keep turning up with their throats ripped out. So the team’s first priority is to stop a supernatural serial killer from striking again. The only problem is the beautiful bounty hunter who keeps interfering with the investigation.

Talia Walker is a bounty hunter who also happens to be a newly turned vampire. She deliberately avoids other supernaturals and knows nothing of what being a vampire truly means. Her job: find a murderer and bring him to justice. The problem is she has never dealt with a supernatural bounty before…or an overbearing, ridiculously sexy vampire.

When Jean Luc and Talia butt heads over the investigation, only Misha can see that their animosity has more to do with attraction than anger. And unless Jean Luc and Talia can set aside their troubled pasts and learn to trust each other, they may never have an opportunity to explore their true feelings. Especially when they come face to face with the killer.
Growing up a TV junkie, award winning author AE Jones oftentimes rewrote endings of episodes in her head when she didn’t like the outcome. She immersed herself in sci-fi and soap operas. But when Buffy hit the little screen she knew her true love was paranormal. Now she spends her nights weaving stories about all variation of supernatural—their angst and their humor. After all life is about both…whether you sport fangs or not.

AE lives in Ohio with her eclectic family and friends who in no way resembles any characters in her books. Honest. Now her two cats are another story altogether.
