Great Read on a Difficult Subject Aug 31, 2008
Marissa Monteilh has done another wonderful job. This book was great to read. It opens your eyes and makes you realize no one is truly perfect. Everyone has some baggage and it's unfortunate that Marina took hers out on her husband, Mangus. I hope this bring more awareness to the issue of domestic abuse, no matter which sex is being abused.

An Issue In My Own Mind Jul 12, 2008
Marina Maxwell is a popular broadcast journalist whose on air personality is the total opposite of her off air psyche. She meets, dates and marries Mangus Baskerville, a police officer and son of an influential family. Mangus has no clue as to the fiery temper and insecurities that lie within Marina. On his wedding day he discovers her jealous rage and from there things spiral out of control. The author, Marissa Monteilh, flips the script and highlights female to male spousal abuse in SOMETHING HE CAN FEEL.
All Marina wants is for Mangus to admit his faults, such as lusting after other women. When he denies what she believes is inappropriate behavior for a husband, she flips and begins to beat him. Always the good son, Mangus tries to control the situation by calming Marina down anyway he can. What he doesn't know is the secret from her childhood is the catalyst for the rages. Knowing she needs help, Marina seeks a therapist who suggest she talk to her mother about her violent past. Upon hearing the details of her mother's childhood, Marina makes a drastic decision for her and Mangus. Mangus, on the other hand, has a childhood story to tell which explains his inability to seek help himself and his determination to stay in his marriage.
Marissa Monteilh utilizes a few secondary characters who aid in us understanding who Marina and Mangus really are. The story is moving, raw and rich. The sexual scenes are detailed and the imagery is vivid. Monteilh, does a wonderful job of showcasing the emotions of each character. Although I was disappointed with the ending [drama for drama sake], SOMETHING HE CAN FEEL is an interesting and heartfelt read.

Love means giving and taking . . . Jul 11, 2008
In "Something he can feel," Marissa Monteilh not only has addressed the issue of domestic violence from a different perspective, she has also created a cast of soap operatic characters that support her climatic ending--or is it the end--smile? Do I since a sequel? It was a great read.
