BLOG TOUR: My POV of Open Heart by Emlyn Chand

Simmi Shergill's life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township's sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be helping.

At least she has Alex, the boyfriend who loves her so much he'd do anything for her. Last summer, he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her.

Just one problem: she's not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? Why can't she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction whenever Dax is around, while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter whom she'd hurt or what she'd risk.

Simmi's loyalty is on the line. Whom will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with "bad idea" written all over him? Emotions run high in the tension-packed book two of the Farsighted series.

Simmi has a lot of issues to overcome in this story. With her eating disorder, low self-esteem, self-doubt, true feelings, hidden feelings and relationships her life seems to be in a constant state of uncertainty. I both love and hate her in this story. I guess I shouldn’t say hate, maybe the perfect word is frustrated.

It seems Alex couldn’t catch a break in this book. A lot of things in this story didn’t go as he would have liked and I couldn’t help but shake my head at some of his solutions to certain issues. Plus Alex’s refusal to trust Dax of course complicates matters which brings tension and discord into his life and relationships. 

We get introduces to more gifted characters and not everyone seems to be on the up and up. Ronnie is one of them. She is new at school and is pretty much intolerable. Then we have Murray. I took a liken to him instantly and hope to read more about him. 

This was a well-paced, mostly *wink wink* pleasant read with a great set of characters. A ton of things were going on in this book and kept me on my toes. I look forward to reading more novels in this series and thank goodness the next one comes out soon!
