Lust. Anger. Hate. Desire. Love. Happiness. Joy. iFeel.

What happens when an unknowing empath meets a pixie who wears leather, a snitch who is repulsive and a fiery angel who can literally set your soul on fire? A whole lot of emotional turmoil and one love story ignited.

Liv Christianni is isolated, alone, tortured and withdrawn, saddled with the torrential downpour of the world’s emotions. Accepting of her providence Liv has lost all hope, until one day fate steps in and spins the course of her life like a spiraling top. Hunted by a Spirit Stalker, Liv is forced to gain control of herself and her surroundings, threatened by the touch of her immortal love; she must find a way to survive both physically and emotionally.

Can she find the courage to accept her true self? Can she love unconditionally cognizant of the condemning consequences? Can she rise from the ashes to become the person she was always meant to be? Funny, witty, real, and poignant, iFeel rips into your soul, and sets your emotions on fire. If you are a fan of Charmed or Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries or The Secret Circle this series is for you!

Praise for iFeel

I love the paranormal genre and I especially love how Marissa has taken it in her own direction with iFeel. It's not your typical vampire romance or werewolf family. It takes paranormal in a whole new direction. Liv is an amazing character that you can't help but feel for the entire novel. It's almost eerie how much I can relate to this fictional character with supernatural powers. This novel held me captive from beginning to end and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

When I agreed to read and review this title I really didn't know what to expect, I didn't even know what genre it was. After reading this book I have to tell you, I still don't know exactly which genre it fits under. It's Supernatural meets Paranormal meets Romance. You may think there's nothing out of the ordinary about that, but you'd be mistaken. This book is like nothing I've ever read before. You won't find any pretty boy glam vampires here and if you're anything like me that is a plus.

This book was a wonderful read! Action packed from the inception and true to the title of the book, the reader embarks on a myriad of emotions. Going through each experience and life altering event with Liv, the books lead character. You feel as if you are walking beside the main character truly discovering the mysteries as they unfold page by page. And a surprising love story with a twist you'll never see coming.

No sparkly vampires here! This isn't your run of the mill supernatural story, it's in a divine category all of its own. With new "supes" mainstream books haven't even touched yet. Taking place at the Jersey shore, the author hits the nail on the head. Perfectly detailing a world laced with boardwalks and clubs acting as catalysts to persons looking to lose there inhibitions. It's an ideal location for those out of the ordinary to pray and camouflage themselves into mainstream society. This author finds a way to make this story relatable to the reader, suspending your disbelief and extracting your empathy for what the characters endure.

An absolute page turner. The character of Liv has been through so much in her short years. Her friends and family attribute her strange and overtly keen behavior as having a mental imbalance. Depressed and loaded on a colossal cocktail of mood stabilizers, her friends stage an intervention and drag her to one of the many clubs at the shore. Lost in a sea of bodies, music pounding, she dances with fate and comes face to face with her destiny. As if awaking from a hazy dream, Liv finds herself without her rose color classes. Now confronted with a sudden life and death situation, she must find a way to tap into her strength and new found power.
