Book Description:
It’s not always easy to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys, especially when a trained killer may be falling in love with her evil hunter…

Emma Hayes, a former military Special Forces Operative turned mercenary-for-hire, finds her tightly controlled world turned upside down when she becomes the target of attacks by powerful supernatural creatures.

Emma must use every skill in her arsenal to stay alive as she tries to solve the mystery of why she has been targeted. Her list of enemies keeps growing - from Zane Shayde, an evil Mage, to a secret branch of the US government - and she doesn't know if there is anyone left she can trust. 

To complicate matters further, Emma is inexplicably drawn to Zane in a way she does not quite understand, even knowing her life is forfeit if captured. Who is he and why does he have this affect on her? How can she fight someone who calls to her, body and soul?

Emma is left haunted by questions, doubts and fears as to why she has been targeted, when they will come for her next, and how she will possibly survive against an enemy she doesn't understand.

Have you ever gone on a reading binge....where you only read certain types of books? Like for a  month only reading ROMCOM and then get into a book slump because they all blend together? This happens to me all of the time and the only way to get out of the book slump is to switch up what I'm reading. That brings me to Unhidden. I haven't read a PNR (Paranormal Romance) in a while and thought it sounded interesting. And it was. It starts out with a bang and really never stops. It checks all of the PNR boxes. Faries, shifters, vampires, and Mage's. Definitely something for everyone. Emma is bad ass and isn't afraid of the hard decisions and loves to dole out ass kickings! I loved her! That being said, the story did not blow me away. I enjoyed the world building and some of the characters really were a lot of fun....but I didn't feel much of a connection between Emma and anyone else. Maybe this was on purpose? There are underlying things going on in the story that might be revealed in the next book that could explain the disconnect...or it could just be me. Either way, if you enjoy PNR I would suggest you give this book a read.
