THE UNWANTED – 4 Stars

You can always count on Shiloh Walker to deliver a story full of suspense, damaged characters and how they make their way to each other.  Destin and Caleb are a perfect example of that.

As a fan of second chance love stories, I was rooting for Destin and Caleb from the start.  They ended their relationship years ago precisely because of their psychic gifts.  And the fact that they can work well together is what brings them together again.  More mature, more life experience.  They realize now what they had and maybe what they could again.

This is a novella and it was a quick read, but I also felt that Shiloh didn’t torture her characters as much in this present story.  I think they probably have been tortured enough prior to getting to this point.

I always love reading Shiloh letting you get in the mindset of a bad guy.  Through Destin we also experience some of the victims since this is who she can psychically connect to.  This story was perhaps a bit less gritty than some of the other stories in this series, but no less serious.  There’s a rapist that needs to be stopped and only a powerful team of psychics to get to him.

Although I would’ve loved to see more action, I think the romance and the rediscovery of the main characters carried this story very well.  THE UNWANTED is my favorite story so far in this series.

THE INNOCENT – 4 Stars

Another chilling installment in the FBI Psychics series.  This time, the supernatural element didn’t come into play until the very end.  Even though it was a underlying idea.

I actually loved that our hero and heroine had met online.  They’d carried on a virtual relationship for over a year, even got up to some Skype and phone sexy time.  The main reason why our heroine wasn’t jumping on the physical bandwagon and running to meet him?  Her psychic power.  She can’t touch others without risking hearing their thoughts and seeing other events unfold.  Which in the end leaves her drained, and is the reason why at her age she’s still a virgin.

But Jay makes the decision to visit Hell, Georgia and remedy this.  Only she comes to find Linc, the Sheriff (or ex-Sheriff) she’s been corresponding with in a ton of trouble that he won’t be able to dig out of on his own.  The town has had a series of mysterious disappearances, amongst which was his own teenage daughter.  And he won’t have time in his life for anything until he finds her.

Short but entertaining.  THE INNOCENT grabbed my attention from the very beginning!  I can’t wait to see what Ms. Walker has in store for us next in this series.

Lovers of paranormal romance and romantic suspense will find the FBI Psychics series to have everything they are looking for!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I’ve got a couple on my shelf from this series and your review reminds me to get busy and read them. I love her books.

Hurry hurry! I haven’t read the first two in the series actually, but I’ve enjoyed everything else since. The HOT IN HANDCUFFS anthology was my intro and after that I was hooked.
