Book Review: Empath by Becca Campbell @beccajcampbell
Now, I’m nowhere near as bad as Jade, but I’m highly attuned to other people’s personalities and emotions. I’m a mimic. I know how Jade feels. My personality shifts and changes depending on the people I’m around, even to the point where I do things I actively hate in others when I’m around one person or another. I’ve been disgusted with myself before when I do something like that. So I get picking people you associate with carefully. I try to associate with people like me, people I’m closest to myself around, or people I enjoy who I am around them. It’s one of the reasons I like being alone. Alone, I know I am just me. No one else. No outside influences. Jade finds herself battling the same battles, a balance between a desire to be alone and wholly herself, and with others but absorbing who they are.

Empath (Flawed Book One)
Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.
Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.
When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.
Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.
