Talon’s deadly abilities are spiraling out of control. Desperate to keep Finn safe, Talon struggles to protect the man he loves with all his heart, and not become the greatest risk to Finn’s life.

Finn has no choice but to offer himself as bait for the evil forces kidnapping enhanced children, facing danger he is untrained and unprepared for, and he is having to do it alone.

Does Talon have one last fight in him? Will he slay everyone who wants to destroy Finn and the team, or will he finally discover that to defeat their enemy and the ultimate threat, the biggest battle he has to face is one with himself?

The Enhanced series keeps kicking it up a notch and is definitely getting better with each installment, but man, oh, man, do I love Nick J. Russo narrating these.

Told again from a dual POV, in Who We Truly Are the action is pretty non-stop, with lots of sexy times in between the next crisis that Talon or Finn face.

This time around it’s all about trying to find out what’s happening to the missing enhanced teens and Finn goes undercover, much to Talon’s disapproval. Finn, predictably, keeps getting hurt (I just wish some of Talon’s powers could somehow transfer to Finn…) but it’s because he keeps doing what is right, but unfortunately it also means Talon and the team keep having to save him. Meanwhile, Talon is going through his own life-altering changes, which could ultimately mean trouble for the team.

I love how this series is progressing, but mostly I love how Nick J. Russo brings these characters to life. His character voices are great and consistent, his tone and pitch are good, and his pacing is terrific.

Look no further for a sexy as hell, good time, entertaining, paranormal romance with plenty of action and awesome narration.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
