Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

This is quite the start to a promising series! R.L. Merrill has built an exciting and unique world within this book that really showcases the potential for greatness this series has. Definitely not your typical PNR, Healer explores a whole new creative take on the genre filled with self discovery, adventure, suspense and of course some fantastic romance.
Like most first books in a series there were moments that dragged a bit for me. Setting up an entire world takes quite a but of detail and sometimes those details slow things down. Outside of that small amount this book is quite close to perfect. Every character has something about them that make them their own brand of special and lovable.
The entire idea behind Haven and the unique people who run it along with their very special students is definitely something I found easy to love. Then there’s Delaney and Damien. These two are the definition of swoon. Their romance is packed with emotion, sweetness and the best dash of heat I’ve experienced in a while.
If you’re looking for something to really sweep you off your feet in a grand adventure this book is one I cannot recommend enough.

Author of Haunted and Teacher series, and winner of the Kathryn Hayes “When Sparks Fly” Best Contemporary award for Hurricane Reese.
