I really enjoyed the other title I’d read from A.S. Fenichel, so this was an opportunity to see what she did with a genre other than historic. And I was impressed: Joshua’s Mistake is clever and tight with plenty of action and solid characters that help to move the story forward, even when they take breaks to explore their more sensual feelings.
Fenichel does a good job in establishing her world, and leaving the reader with few questions, even when the action is all twisty. Tessa was lovely and so totally THE poster child for wrong place at the wrong time, that you couldn’t help but worry for her almost from the start. What made her unique is her unwillingness to be everyone else’s doormat, and refuses to just be the one who is saved. She has skills and talents, and she wants to use them.
Joshua is completely enmeshed with Tessa from the start – their psychic auras and connections fit like hands in gloves, and this is apparently rare. He also doesn’t want to be used for what he can do, and while he is protecting Tessa from a particularly abhorrent villain, his own moral code and desire to protect those who can’t protect themselves shines through.
And we have their connection that works to fuel their own physical connection: this enhanced their bond and Joshua’s ability to reach Tessa when things were looking bleak. Additionally, their particular bond and abilities also had them fueling one another’s physical and sexual pleasure responses, since they are able to interpret their partner’s reactions by actually feeling them. It makes for one VERY hot read!
So many things to like, and if you want a well-crafted paranormal story with some unusual elements – this is certainly a choice!

Accused of treason and the murder of her Psychic Special Forces team, Tessa is in the custody of the FBI. She’s shocked and terrified when the most powerful Psi Agent in the world shows up to probe her mind and discover her guilt or innocence.
Joshua never expected to find a victim of one of his probes attractive, but he can’t seem to leave her behind when all hell breaks loose. Saving the stunning blonde means being drawn into a psychic war that will definitely end his career—and likely both of their lives.
The rhythm of their psychic auras hums to perfection and neither can fight the bond, but it’s all ripped away by a madman with a grudge. Tessa falls into a coma, and Joshua will have to risk his heart and soul to pull her back from the brink.
