There’s a new drug on the streets called Kick. The side effects are so brutal, most folks only try it once…unless they’re psychic. Then they do it until it kills them.
Psychic medium Victor Bayne is well acquainted with pharmaceuticals, but he’s managed to steer clear of street drugs…so far.
Jacob Marks has a medicine cabinet filled with every over-the-counter remedy known to man, but none of them are doing much for his mood—and his long, fruitless days of combing through records at The Clinic are taking a heavy toll.
But their lackluster investigation does have one silver lining: a front-row seat at The Clinic when the first Kick overdose comes in. And as scary as the drug might be, if it truly does augment psychic ability, the appeal is not lost on Vic.
Because the very first hit never killed anyone.

When Kyle Wolffe walks his hot @ss into the math course I teach at the University of Michigan, I think I might die of temptation. There are so many reasons I should keep my hands off him, no matter how handsome the younger Leo DiCaprio look-alike is. He’s not only a student at the school, but he’s also my Teaching Assistant for this year.
Not to mention that I’m currently a professor on probation, due to a BS allegation made up against me by a female student who was upset I wouldn’t be with her. The reason I wouldn’t be even remotely interested in her-or any woman-is because I’m gay, but I’m closeted. Coming out would help me beat the charge but I didn’t ever picture being forced to do it this way.
Yet when Kyle runs into his own trouble due to anti-gay bullies, it’s time to decide what kind of life I want to live. Will I be able to stop myself from bending him over my desk and taking what we both want? And if so, will it cause more problems for both of us? Or will love give me the strength to testify honestly in Kyle’s case, as well as my own?
They say love conquers all and I sure hope that’s true. Because both of us are in a heap of trouble and right now it seems that being together could just make it worse.

I can’t bring him out of the closet, but I won’t meet him in it, either.
