From my blog

I love seeing the dynamics of counselor and patient and trying to figure out the why and how to assist them to heal or overcome their addictions. If I was to start my career again, I would study to be a sex counselor. Morgan Snow's newest patient is a powerful, influential man who is secretly addicted to watching porn online. We know he is not the murderer but all the evidence points to him, so who is the murderer. I love how this ended, great suspense with perfect answer to the end.

She's also working with a group of high schoolers, all is confidential if the teenagers come to the sessions and try to restrain from their obsession with real life sex fantasies online. One is keeping a huge secret which is unbelievable when it is revealed and so scary when thinking about the things teenagers think about and do to get noticed, scary.

There are women online who are fulfilling sex fantasies and then they start getting sick and dying in front of thousands of viewers. The police start to get phone calls from all over the states but in the end they end up being traced to a New York company and Dr. Snow has access to the answers without realising.

She now has to decide does she keep her patients secrets as part of the counselor patient confidentiality clause or does she relate the information to her lover who happens to be the one investigating the murders. This of course also adds personal tensions between the two.

These books are labeled Erotic Psychological Thrillers but I don't consider them to be erotica, it is sex related issues. I found this trilogy to be sexy, thrilling, addicting and all with great endings. Recommended, I give the full trilogy 4 stars. ( )

In this third Butterfield Institute psychological thriller, a serial killer is killing women who broadcast online sex shows through the use of poison in tools they use during their online shows. The killer's victims suffer a gruesome death while broadcasting their shows, and their deaths are watched by hundreds of horrified online viewers.

Dr Morgan Snow is hired to help a group of troubled teenagers at a high school with what the adults deem to be an unhealthy fascination with sex. There are secrets held by the teenagers she needs to uncover if she is to help them.

In the meantime, Dr Snow faces her own troubles at home. Her talented daughter is doing well in her first onstage performance and has been offered a part in a tv series but Dr Snow is plagued with memories of her own mother's rise and fall in the acting business. Her troubles are compounded when her ex-husband suggests they get back together again, just as she's starting to open herself to Detective Noah Jordain. Their relationship is strained when he arrests one of her patients for the web pornography murders, despite her conviction that he cannot be the serial killer.

I like the way the author brings out the seedier elements of society and then blends the multiple layers together into a solid thriller. ( )

Morgan Snow's newest patient is a powerful, influential man - secretly addicted to watching Internet Web cam pornography. He's not alone in his desires. She's also working with a group of high school teenagers equally and dangerously obsessed with these real-time fantasies.

Fantasies that are all too accessible. The the women start dying online, right in front of their eyes. Now it's all about murder.
