My hopes, my dreams, and most of all me…we will finally be, set free. 

Questions, questions, and more questions . . . they consume Jocelyn Timmons’ life—both of them. Questions that never seem to have an answer. They haunt her, eat at her, and dreams of a normal senior year of high school have finally floated away into nothingness. 

Inheriting the gift of EVE (Essence Voyager Era) has become both a gift and a curse. One that Jocelyn doesn’t know if she wants or can accept. The world she once knew and thrived in has all but disappeared in the last two months. And now she wonders if she can ever find her way home again. 

Her fiancé, Jackson Chandler, and his family seem to be the only ones who understand what she’s going through besides her uncles, both of which she’s grown very close to. But even they do not fully grasp how turbulent the situation at home has become. Will Jocelyn survive the torments from her mother and brother? Or will she find a hidden key to finally unlock her golden cage? 

Find out in Perception, the griping third installment in the EVE series.


Perception starts where the last Eve novel left off. The barrier is still lingering, but Jocelyn is coming to terms with her new life on two different planes. She is still struggling with getting along with her brother and Mom. They both seem to think she is nuts for wanting to marry someone at 18 years old (can you blame them?) but Jocelyn still won’t tell them why she’s doing it. The reader desperately wants to tell her “JUST TELL THEM ALREADY!” since dealing with them thinking she is crazy is happening anyway. She finds out some new info about her long lost Uncle Nicholas and also that her sister Sidney may be gifted with Eve as well. Both Jackson and Jocelyn are struggling to find a place to live before their wedding in the past, until a surprise catches them off guard. In present time, the pair heads off to Boston and secretly betray Jocelyn’s father. I won’t give away any more, but dang this girl is really a rebel!

I really like this series so far, but I like I said before, I keep wanting Jocelyn to just spill it to her family already. We know her parents and friends are going to find her crazy and the drama between her and Jenna is just nuts. However, this book got a little bit juicier than the others, so that kept my interest. This series is great for a reader who likes a chit lit book with a little bit of historical fiction as well.
