Breena Cassidy
Cursed with what could be one of the worst supernatural abilities imaginable, Breena has never had the luxury of falling in love. Hell, she’s never even held a guy’s hand. At only twenty-two years old, she’s just about given up on the whole love thing. After all, when you can see twelve hours of someone’s future by a simple touch, and they, in turn, can see w

Hawk and Breena were adorbs. They were the sweetest and cutest couple that I have read in quiet some time!

Breena has a supernatural power that prevents her from touching others. When she does, she sees their future. She is 21 and a virgin to everything. She has never kissed, held hands or hugged anyone else. She plays a gypsie at college parties where they think it's a hoax but she really sees the future. She uses a crystal ball for a prop. I absolutely adored this girl!!

2.5 stars. I was totally lured in by the hot guy on the cover, all those sexy curls. *sigh* The excellent reviews hooked me too, so maybe this is case of "it's not you, it's me" but this just didn't do it for me.

It's not a terrible book, the blurb sounds amazing. But everything about it just felt...flat. The writing, the characters, the plot. I got no chemistry from the MCs, even the parts that should have bee

I love this book. Just when I thought I had met all the sexy men from the Sectorium, Ms. Griscom introduces us to Hawk. Oh is he yummy. He has charm,a bit of cockiness and a distinct physical trait that seperates him from all the other hotties, one grey eye and one green. Add to that a muscular physique from playing hockey most of his life and you have the perfect male specimen.

Breena reads tarot cards at many of the sorority parties at her college as a way to make extra money, but what her cli

First off I think this is one of the must reads of 2015! I loved this book.
The writting is just incredible. I was immediately immersed in the plot. AGK is a spin-off of her phenomenal Whisper Cape series, but not needed to enjoy this story. These characters are brilliantly written. Breena is a shy but intelligent girl. The author did such a great job at making her unique not weak. Hawk was strong and lovable. The chemistry between them reminds me of soul mates. Fated for one another. The plot w

DNF 60 percent.

Review: A Gypsy's Kiss by Susan Griscom After my last disappointing read, I chose this book with the hope that it would prove to be a better choice. I was not disappointed. A GYPSY'S KISS is an entertaining story of first love that is filled with sufficient mystery and drama to keep you turning the pages. I found myself glued to my Kindle, which I had a hard time putting down. The author wove a captivating tale that plunges the reader into a world of hockey, college life, and supernatural capabi ...more

A Gypsy’s Kiss is without a doubt both tantalizingly captivating and breathtakingly beautiful in its dark shroud of mystery, life-changing journey of love, and unwavering devotion to family. What an amazing gift to enjoy such an incredible adventure that highlights and focuses on the most important things that make life worth living! No one is ever truly unloved, and everyone touches the lives of those around them no matter how insignificant they think they are. Don’t ever discount your place an ...more

Looking for your next new book boyfriend? Hawk may just be it. He's one of the 'good guys' with a cocky edge that just make you melt.

A Gypsy's Kiss is the first book in Susan's Sectorium series, a spin-off of her incredible Whisper Cape trilogy, but no worries... it stands perfectly well on its own. Just enough backstory is given to make you aware of who and what the Sectorium is and how Breena f

A Gypsy's Kiss WOW!! WHAT A GREAT STORY!!! This is a spin off series of The Whisper Cape series by Susan Griscom but I tell you that you don't have to read that series to know what AGK is about. Susan describes what you need to know about the Sectorium and peoples ablilities so you can understand them. She also mentions some of the characters in the Whisper Cape series cause they do relate to Breena and you wouldn't be lost.

Hawk a hockey player and Breena a student both have ablities. They meet

Really enjoyed this novel. It's the first in a new spin off series featuring members of the Sectory which we learned about in the Whisper Cape trilogy. You don't have to have read the Whisper Cape series to understand it though.

I loved the main Characters. Breena was only a kid in Whisper Cape, in this book she's all grown up and nearing graduation at college. Hawk was a great character and the catalyst for events in the story as he approaches Breena for help as he thinks he's being stalked.

I loved this! Breena and Hawk both have powers that they have to keep hidden from those around them. Hawk seeks out Breena when he hears about her powers because he thinks she can help him. She can't, because he's the only person whose future she can't see. Although, that makes it possible to touch him. She's never had a relationship because of her powers. He thinks he can't have a relationship because he is always traveling for hockey. I liked the romance and the characters, but there are also ...more

Whisper Cape fans are in for a treat with A Gypsy's Kiss. From the start, I was hooked. One of my favorite parts of the book is the dream. Even after I finished reading this incredible story, I can still picture that scene over and over again. Susan did such an incredible job at creating interesting characters and a story that twists and comes at you like BAM!! The story itself is never dull and kept a good pace. I was able to finish it in one sitting and looking for more. I am curious how this ...more

When Brenna went to do a side job at a sorority house she never dreamed she would meet the man of her dreams. She does on the form of hockey player Hawk, never dreaming that he would be like her with his own special powers. These two embark on quite the adventure looking for a mysterious person and it takes both their powers put together to fight this person.

I was lucky enough to snag an ARC. I usually prefer books with really meaty stories and just a little romance, but this book is enough to change my mind. The romance develops beautifully with the mystery constantly haunting the young couple. I loved the characters. The psychologist in me found their actions and reactions so consistant I felt as though they were real. A wonderful balance of action, romance, mystery, dialog and description. I hated to have to put it down to sleep, and ended up wit ...more

This was a great story.
A college gal trying to make extra money telling fortunes. A college hockey player, center and captain of the team.
What do they in common.
They both have powers that have to be kept secret.
Hawk seeks out Breena to help him with a problem that he can't quite see. Falling in love was never in the cards.

This was a well written story and I was laughing, crying, and falling in love.
Definitely a must read.

Hawk has a way with words, “you have such a beautiful **s,” he breathed in between kisses. “I want to kiss it. Will you let me kiss it, Gypsy?” Hawk is a gentleman he takes his woman's suitcase for her, "he shook his head, grabbed the handle of the bag and then grabbed my hand. “Only you, Gypsy. How am I supposed look macho pulling a purple suitcase?” I loved this book it had my two favorite things paranormal and a sexy hunk of a man.

Great story

I loved this story. I haven't read the previous Sectorian trilogy, but you really don't need to. The book stated that Breena was related to characters from them but they weren't involved in the story.
Breena can't touch anyone without seeing and showing them the next twelve hours of their lives. She does fortune telling for money because she can get a glimpse of their future from touching something they just touched, like money.
She meets Hawks during one of these fortune tellings but h

I am loving this new series! Breena has always kept to herself due to her supernatural ability, which practically makes her untouchable. Hawk is the bigshot hockey player with abilities of his own. He has a dark feeling that something is following him so he seeks out Breena, the campus gypsy, to see if she can help. Upon their first meeting for a tarot card reading, both are startled due to the immediate pull they have to each other. This is

Breena feels she is cursed. Whenever she touches someone she sees their future and they immediately see what she sees. That is until Hawk walks into the room where she was doing fortune-telling. When she touched him she saw nothing. Soon she realizes that he is like her and has abilities. Hawk came to see Breena to see if she could help him with who he thinks is following him. When she can’t help him she thinks she won’t see him again even though they have serious sparks. Breena is wrong there. ...more

Interesting college romance between two people with special abilities.

Breena has led a sheltered life due to her ability to see the next 12 hours of the future of anybody she touches. Not only does she see it, the person she touches does also. As a result, she is a loner who covers as much skin as possible with clothing to avoid touching anyone. She makes money reading tarot cards at campus parties.

Hawk also has special abilities, but he uses them in his hockey. He is sure that something is tra

I've wrestled with this review for a while. While the story was unique and well written, I couldn't personally connect with any character in the story. Even though I was interested enough to read through the book, it wasn't for me. Three glittery stars.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this

This was a great read and I enjoyed reading about Breena and Hawk and how they came together.

Breena, a young woman with a gift that keeps her apart from other people and is stronger and more resilient than even she knows. Hawk is a young man who uses the image of a shallow hockey player to hide his own gifts ands pain.

What happens when circumstances toss these two together? Do yourself a favour and find out!

I absolutely loved this book. I loved Breena as a little girl in the Whisper Cape series. She was such a cute kid. Now she is all grown up and on her own journey. When she meets Hawk she experiences things she have never experienced before with her powers. She then goes on a search to help Hawk discover what he feels and finds out that he too has powers of his own. Along this journey they discover so much about each other and Breena helps a hunky hockey player find answers! I absolutely loved th ...more

This is the first book I've read by Susan Griscom, but it will definitely not be the last. I loved the characters, the storyline, the suspense, and the romance. Breena and Hawk are two gifted people that meet on Halloween night. Breena can't believe that she can actually touch Hawk without seeing into his future. She doesn't understand why, but she is so thankful. Can you imagine being 22 and never had a hug or anything from a HOT guy? If you want to read an unbelievable book, I highly recommend ...more

Good story. Well written with strong, likable characters. I enjoyed reading about Breena and Hawks path to each other and a future together. I liked how they each had their own special uniqueness and how they reacted to each other. I had wished that there would have been a little more written about their gifts. I feel it would have brought more to the story. But never the less I really enjoyed reading this book.

The ideas behind this book series is one I enjoy. Unfortunately the interest ended there. Between the deluge of information and the awkward writing I did my best to slog through.

With hope the author will find her stride and continue creating.
