Everyone enjoys peace and tranquility, and Victor Bayne is no exception. He goes to great lengths to maintain a harmonious home with his partner, Jacob. Although the cannery is huge, it's grown difficult to avoid the elephant in the room...the elephant with the letters FPMP scrawled on its hide. Once Jacob surrendered his PsyCop badge, he infiltrated the Federal Psychic Monitoring Program. In his typical restrained fashion, he hasn't been sharing much about what he actually does behind its vigilantly guarded doors. And true to form, Vic hasn't asked. In fact, he would prefer not to think about the FPMP at all, since he's owed Director Dreyfuss an exorcism since their private flight to PsyTrain. While Vic has successfully avoided FPMP entanglement for several months, now his debt has finally come due.… (lisätietoja)

5 star for the audio
2 stars for the story


It's me and not the book!! Will just be over here soaking in shame!




Oi! This was such a letdown. Honestly if it wasn't for Gomez’s narration, this would have been a dnf.



I found this book 60% of this book very boring. The writing was amazing , but this one had too much information.

What I Liked

-Vic as usual and him being his sarcastic charming self.

-Vic and Jacob as a couple, they have an amazing chemistry and are hot together.

-The writing was good too.

What I didn’t Like

-LISA!! Ugh! She is the most annoying, infuriating character ever. And her dating Dreyfus?? That was so far-fetched and unbelievable. What was with her camping in Vic’s living? Agrrrhhh! I want her to disappear.



-The mystery, Oh! lord! it was a mystery within a mystery within a mystery, at some point I got lost.

-The story is no longer paranormal, it has ventured into Sci-Fi territory.

My Major Dislike

MINI RANT!

-This book is about Vic and Jacob, and these two were not given page time. There is only one sex scene, one freaking sex scene!!!! I wanted to scream at this !! I mean Lisa and Dreyfus spent more time together than Vic and Jacob. I was ok with book 6 having one sex scene because at least we had Vic and Jacob spending precious moments together.

Overall I will give this 2.5 stars rounded up. It was one hell of a disappointment. I need a book with very hot sex scenes next. ( )

Can't say much about this book. It felt like the end, in a way. Vic's career at the Fifth Precinct is officially over. And this book very much felt like a bridge. This chapter of Vic's life is over. Detective Bayne is no more, lets all welcome Agent Bayne.
And I think deep down Vic knew he was just dodging the inevitable. He was stalling.
The ending was a bit OTT with the fire. We don't even know what happened to Zig. I hope he gets partnered with Carolyn.
Lisa's situation is weird. I didn't mind her dating Con, but I think they went too damn fast and it was not believable.
So this installment wasn't as exciting for me. But as always, I liked spending time with characters I come to love.

This was a re-read for me in one of my absolutely favorite series (PsyCop). In this entry Victor pays in his favor to the FPMP, and gets to check out Jacob's new job in the process. However, the act of exorcising a few repeaters in Con Dreyfuss' office becomes complicated when a sentient ghost with a grudge and a predatory interest in Vic returns.

It is fun re-reading these stories. It gives me a chance (no pun intended LOL) to see how the events here really do affect what I now know goes on in the future stories. Although this series kind of starts off as a erotic m/m romance series, it certainly grows into its own as a bonafide paranormal ghost story series as it goes along. As much as I love the romance between Vic and Jacob, I really enjoy the storyline as well. It is a ghost story without being too gross or scary for me to enjoy. I so very highly recommend this series!! ( )

I think I've finally figured out why I love these books so much. I am a terrible, terrible romance reader. They annoy me, in large part because they whittle these people down to no more than their relationships and then implode said relationships over absolutely nothing. At the end of the day I'm a giant softy and I just want everyone to be happy-ish. Or at least happy in one tiny part of their lives, and then the rest of their life can suck because they're dealing with ghosts, or werewolves, or megalomaniacs, or something along those lines. Not because their relationships are awkward and pear shaped to the extent that I wish they'd just move on.

I never have this issue with the PsyCop series. Jacob and Vic aren't perfect and they don't have a perfect relationship (that would be boring) but they try and they're happy. Is there real insecurity on the part of certain characters? Sure. But they manage this adult thing called communication. I find the ability to talk things out very sexy.

Spook Squad brings a small change to the PsyCop series. Jacob has switched jobs and joined the MIB essentially. Or at least the Feds (apparently there are Men in Blacker-Black who outdo even Jacob's new boss). Vic is of course not too fond of the group and worried for his boyfriend/partner but he has bigger issues. He owes the Feds an exorcism himself, there's still that pesky GhostTV, and he has a not too friendly entity floating around pointing fingers at the Feds his BF is working with. Not disturbing at all.

There is a formula to the PsyCop series that I can't quite put my thumb on. It's gently predictable (but I find most media predictable so I use that word carefully.), but the book is also so enjoyable that I'm always glad to go along for the ride even when I want to shake the MC's for not noticing what's so obvious to me. I think my enjoyment boils down to the fact that Vic is problematic as a narrator in the most human ways possible and you stay to root for him. Price nails his PTSD and anxiety, as well as carefully balanced drug use and that makes it all the more interesting. It's Vic's strength in the face of all sorts of past, present, and future adversity that makes me so glad the author recognized throwing in a problematic bad boy boyfriend would have been just too over the top.

So, I desperately need more of this series, as usual. ( )
