"...a tense, emotion packed story..."

Book 5 Bay City Paranormal Investigation

Sam Raintree and Bo Broussard have finally settled into life as a couple but it is far from a peaceful life. Turmoil comes in the form of Bo's bitter ex-wife Janine as Sam is caught in the middle of the two loving parents' disputes over their children. Janine lets her feelings over Bo and Sam's relationship rule as she fights over the custody of the kids. The situation comes to a head when Bo's oldest son begins to show signs of the same psychic ability as Sam. Choosing to believe Bo and Sam are filling the boys head with delusions, a sceptical Janine ignores the danger facing her family and refuses to let the couple help. Bo and Sam are left with a terrible dilemma and either way, Bo may lose his children forever.

An Inner Darkness is a tense, emotion packed story driven by the strength of the feelings of all the main characters. You can't help but be swept up in events as both sides fight for what they believe is right while the sinister evil that stalks the Bay City Paranormal team threatens, once again, all they hold dear. While it did seem like a big coincidence that Bo's son begin to show signs of having the same abilities as Sam (perhaps it would have been more believable had he been Sam's son?) I was more than happy to suspend my disbelief. This is fiction after all and anything is possible as long as you stay true to your world. And in author Ally Blue's world strong psychic abilities are fairly common and monsters lurk in the shadows. With each book in this series my love for these characters grows. The action shows no sign of slowing and once again I am left wanting more.

All hell�s about to break loose. Literally.

Bay City Paranormal Investigations Book 5

After more than a year as a couple�and plenty of bumps along the road�Sam Raintree and Dr. Bo Broussard are finally settling into life together. Bo has come to terms with his sexuality, their business is thriving, and Sam has begun to accept his role as a step-parent of sorts to Bo�s sons, Sean and Adrian. The only real dark spot is Bo�s ex-wife, Janine.

When eleven-year-old Adrian begins exhibiting signs of psychokinesis�the same ability which allows Sam to manipulate interdimensional portals�the friction between Sam, Bo and Janine escalates. Sam and Bo have reason to believe Adrian�s raw, uncontrolled talent poses a danger to him and those around him. Janine, however, believes Sam and Bo are encouraging dangerous delusions on Adrian�s part. Common ground is nonexistent, anger and hard words ever-present.

Caught in the middle of the conflict and burdened with an ability he can�t yet control, Adrian is soon pushed beyond his limits. With Adrian�s mind�and the lives of everyone around him�hanging in the balance, Sam and Bo race against time to save both boys and keep an otherworldly horror from breaking free.
