2.5 starsOMG! I am the first reviewer, no pressure at all right*eesh*"The visionary" is a paranormal m/m romance. The MCs are part of a special group of individuals who have powers to read and bend your mind and see things that normal people cannot. The story starts with a murder which brings the MCs together.The events of the story revolve around Alonzo and Colin’s investigation which requires their brand of special powers.

A Joyfully Jay review. 3.25 starsThe Visionary is a dark and complex novel that engaged me in parts, whilst others I struggled with. I particularly liked how the characters of Colin and Alonzo unite, so much so that I could not imagine them succeeding separately. The characters of both men develop effectively as The Visionary progresses and in a novel that has so many intricacies, Charli Coty is obviously aware of how to keep her story driven by the two men involved.Colin learns to embrace his p [...]
Such high hopes, and I'll give it 3.5 for those and for how C. wound up dealing with W. Overall, it was good, just not quite as good as I'd hoped. Another thing. I'm not sure if a sequel is in the works.
~ 2.5 Stars ~ Colin sees things others don’t—not only that, but he has other abilities that he hasn’t even scratched the surface of—yet. When he meets Alonzo, a private detective who lives in the same building, he knows there is something there between them, and it’s more than the dead body in the lobby. So begins a dark and twisted adventure that will lead Colin and Alonzo through a series of near death experiences, facing not one but three different adversaries. Using his powers to p [...]
Colin’s life has hardly been what you call normal. Even so, discovering one of his neighbors keeled over on the floor dead—and covered in a fine purple mist—is a new level of strange. And with another neighbor crouching over the dead man, you’d think that what happened was pretty clear. But Colin has long been able to see into the heart and intentions of people…and Alonzo Green is no killer. That’s about the only thing Colin is sure of though, because as the two investigate the murde [...]
DNF at 20%.

I was excited about this story for the sheer concept of a visionary. It was different from the normal casting of spells and magic folklore. Colin can see things that others can't. Emotions are colors and sometimes what should be a static object starts to move and interact with him. Alonzo "Al" Green is a PI out to right the wrongs he involuntarily committed. Together these two make quite the duo. You can see my full review on my YouTube Channel: youtu/iTqlQUxw8gk

I love stories that explore the paranormal, and what grabbed me with The Visionary by Charli Coty was its exploration of a very different kind of power. Colin not only sees what others don’t, but auras—different colours which reveal things about people they’d often prefer kept hidden. I enjoyed this idea, and the world building that went along with it. Power can be stolen, and with dangerous consequences. The author uses descriptive language really well, with some of the imagery sticking w [...]
I kept feeling like I was dropped in the middle of the story and I missed what happened or why a character did this or that. The unfinished ending didn't really help either.
