Sexy fireman Chris Savoy has been closeted all his life. He’s a weretiger in Resurrection, and no shifters are more macho than that city’s. Due to a terrible tragedy in his past, Chris resigned himself to hiding what he is—a resolve that’s threatened the night he lays eyes on cute gay werecop Tony Lupone.
Tony might be a wolf, but he wakes longings Chris finds difficult to deny. When a threat to the city throws these heroes together, not giving in seems impossible. Following their hearts, however, means risking everything...
It's no secret that I am a fan of Emma Holly, I have professed my love for her books on this blog a few times, but seriously they are just that damn good! The world that she has created in the Hidden series has just enough mundane things in it to feel real but the otherworldly creatures are what give it it's originality.
To say that I have been waiting patiently for Tony's book would be a flat out lie! I have been hoping for the hottie cop to find his forever guy since I finished book one. I really thought after some things that happened in Hidden Crimes that we might be getting a Tony/Liam hook-up but that is not the way things played out. But that's OK, because that means that I still have Liam's book to look forward to.
Were-tiger Chris was grrrreat! He was so completely sexy and the first time that he and Tony hooked up I loved the way that he took care of Tony. I hated that he felt so afraid to come out and be his true self.
I liked that Tony was laid back and didn't seem to let it bother him when people made comments, but when push came to shove he stepped up in a big way. Every book that I have read in this series that Tony has been in, he has always seemed to be the heart of the team.
I think it's important when you have a series like this that you have a strong cast of secondary characters, some old and some new. Ms. Holly has a special gift of being able to blend these characters into the story line adding complexity in the simplest of ways. With each book that passes the characters become more real because of the addition of family and children, so we the reader feel like we are part of their lives and are watching them grow. For me, I know it adds to my anticipation for the next book and keeps me invested in the series as a whole.
I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the Hidden series and hope we get to spend some time under the sea, if not the the were-seals then with a new species. I also hope we get to spend more time with the dragons!
I highly recommend this book if you are a lover of great stories that have some HEAT!
