 Those born Reflective are the only beings with the ability to jump between worlds. With The Cause firmly entrenched by years of highly stylized military-type training in combat of every kind, they use their natural born ability for inter-dimensional travel to police worlds where wrongdoing has overtaken civility.

As an elite Reflective, Jeb Merrick finds himself partnered with a rare female Reflective. Merrick is convinced that she can do nothing but slow him down. Beth Jasper is small, in both stature and mindset. When they are thrust together as partners, Merrick vows that she will receive the same neutral treatment as a male. Merrick cannot allow the unlikely union of Beth Jasper to get in the way of finding his prophesied soulmate. .

Beth discovers she is partnered with the cockiest of all pureblood Reflectives and struggles to maintain her composure with a hostile partner whose loyalty she doesn't possess.

Can the Reflectives uphold The Cause, reach a point of compromise and find their chosen soulmates?

The Reflective by Tamara Rose Blodgett (Reflection, #1)

The Reflective (Reflection, #1)Only the elite few are born “Reflective,” in this alternate world created in the fertile mind of Tamara Rose Blodgett. Able to use their natural talent to cross dimensions into other worlds, The Reflective are trained warriors charged with keeping populations safe from evil. Beth is the rarest of the rare, a female Reflective and fierce warrior who’s only negative is her diminutive size, making her a target in battle. When Jeb is forced to partner with her, he finds there is more to Beth than meets the eye and his heart is determined to keep her safe while his battle sense says she is nothing but trouble. Can she hold her own in battle? What if it involves the heart? Jeb wants to find his soulmate, but Beth is a threat to both his heart and soul. Battle after battle, this unlikely pair are becoming a fighting machine to be reckoned with, but Beth is making more enemies among her own as the facts of her birth cause fear and prejudice to rear their ugly heads.

A good author leaves their mark on their work, a great author brands their work into our minds as we re-live the highpoints, carry on a mental debate over some parts and feel like we have been on this journey alongside the characters. The lines of fact and fiction blur as the pages disappear and this tale comes alive. Are there characters from other series receiving cameo acknowledgment? Are these worlds entwined in a huge collage of dimensions?

With her ability to spark humor, danger and attitude, Ms. Blodgett has created another breathtaking fantasy filled with action, and characters that come alive, page after page with their snarky dialogue that screams signature Blodgett!

I received a review copy of The Reflective from Tamara Rose Blodgett in exchange for my honest review.
