Title: Hybrid (The Healer Series, #2)
Author: B.N. Toler

My Aunt Lucy used to say, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.” She said many wise things I never heeded when she was alive. I want to be the woman that’s okay with hiding from what she fears and letting her big, strong man protect her. But that’s not me. I hate to be scared. I hate the feeling that there is an evil out there that could hurt me if it finds me. But mostly, I hate that so many before me lived in fear and died at the hands of evil. That is why I cannot find peace within. There is no peace for me while Healers suffer the atrocities of others.

I know Rhett would protect me at all costs. He loves me. And that is why I must leave him behind. It’s impossible to justify hurting someone you love—or many you love—to do what you truly believe is right. Lucy also used to say, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I get what she was trying to tell me now. Hindsight is twenty/twenty. Sometimes we choose a path we think will lead us toward a noble cause, full of ambition and altruism, only to look back and see we’ve run over and crushed the ones we love most along the way. I can only pray that one day those I love will forgive me.

I woke up and I left. I left Rhett, the man who saved me from myself. The man I love. I left my brothers—my best friends.

I left.
But leaving led me to more. I found answers. I found others like me—who want what I want.

But most importantly, I found myself.

My name is Aldo Lawson.

I’m awake.

And I’m a Hybrid.

I received an ARC of 'Hybrid' by B.N. Toler in exchange for an honest review, and here are my thoughts -

First off, let me just say that I LOVE this book, it's all kinds of wow. I was captivated, and didn't want to put it down until I was finished...and now I'm squirming in my seat as I wait for 'Savage' to be released!

The storyline is so unique and refreshing, I really, really love the way the author thinks and how she wrote this book. The abilities that her characters have, for example - dream walking, or being able to absorb a persons information from a touch, and then sorting through it in your subconscious, is just really cool. Also, most of the books that I've read in the past have been written in third-person, so for this one being in first-person – and very well written, I might add – it was a nice change of scenery.

There are so many things I'd love to gush about in this review, I finished the book about 4 days ago now, and I've been trying to figure out what to say, without exposing too much for the reader. I really enjoyed all of the twists and turns Ms. Toler took us on in 'Hybrid'. In the blurb for the book, at the end where Aldo states that she leaves Rhett, and, hold up, she LEAVES Rhett? Oh my GOD! I was even falling in love with this man!

“Aldo, I'm in love with you. Like it or not, I'm going to protect you. It's what a man does when he loves a woman...” Rhett to Aldo

Omg, I melted..

But, it's something Aldo has to do, and as it turns out, I'm glad that she did. This is a huge turning point in her life, and really, where her journey begins. She basically starts a whole new life, and as she ventures out on her own, she finds new friendships, answers to a lot of puzzling questions, acquires new abilities with her new bad-a$$ “Hybrid” self – I loved the scenes where she was taught how to utilize her new skills, especially when she was jumping off of buildings and “spelling” people. And then, her inner-self, that was an awesome add-in that I found hilarious! The steamy, hot, sex scenes, were very well written, and now thanks to this series, I now have 3 new book boyfriends! *grin*

Everything about the book was great. From start to finish, I was met with surprises that I didn't see coming. Hence, why I'm going to have to stop here, so I don't spoil the experience for you all!
Buy the book and read it, you won't regret it!
