Review: Hidden Talents (Hidden #1) by Emma Holly

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Werewolf cop Adam Santini is sworn to protect and serve all the supes in Resurrection, NY - including unsuspecting human Talents who wander in from Outside.

Telekinetic Ari is hot on the trail of a mysterious crime boss who wants to exploit her gift for his own evil ends, a mission that puts her on a collision course with the hottest cop in the RPD. Adam wants Blackwater too, but mostly he wants Ari. She seems to be the mate he's been yearning for all his life, though getting a former street kid into bed with the Law could be his toughest case to date.
My Thoughts: *fans self* I'm going to go on record as saying that this book is hot enough that you might not want to read it in public. There's a distinct possibility that it made *me* blush a time or two. And that's saying a lot because I read sexy shifter books every chance I get. *fans self again*

First off, I have a definite love for that whole "mine" thing that shifters do. I just adore it. So when Adam catches Ari's scent and goes all growly, I might have swooned a bit. And then they get physical and... *swoons some more*. Seriously, there's an undeniable hotness factor here. She's twitchy, he's determined. They have sparks. Lots and lots of sparks.

Naturally, there's danger and mayhem and more danger that they have to work around before finding their happily ever after. Ari is in a situation with her former boss. Adam is a werewolf cop determined to keep his city safe. They team up. They kick some booty. They get to have more sweaty sex. I approve of all of those things.

Now, I'm going to freely admit that I picked this book up on a day when I wanted something sexy and a little dark and this book delivered that. I'd love to read more about Adam's team and see if they find their chosen ones in the future. In the meantime... delicious shifter sex. I approve.

    1. Yep. Also, this would have been the perfect time to say "#NakedWerewolves?" because my answer would have been HELL YES! #NAKEDWEREWOLVES EVERYWHERE!

    2. I am clearly off my game today.


    3. I was a little embarrassed to have to leave that last comment to you. You're usually so much better than this.
