Wolf Protector ( Federal Paranormal Unit 1)by Milly Taiden

Hello to all!

I've decided to start on an author for which i have a lot of book on my wishlist ( fewer in my pile) but one that i still hadn't started : Milly Taiden. I'm not sure why i postponed reading these, perhaps i was told it's super steamy ( it is!) and it made me hesitant, perhaps i had so big expectation i was fearing disappointment... i don't know.

In any case i started it and i've read book 1 in her Federal Paranormal Unit which was a good suprise despite some points bothering me but let's see that more in detail

Happy reading.

Description from goodreads :

 A woman with a secret…
The Federal Paranormal Unit is an elite squad of supernaturals dedicated to solving missing persons cases. Erica’s gift allows her a special connection with the crime, but it comes at a deep personal cost… Until now, she’s kept her gift a secret, even from the other members of the team. But this case will throw her together with Agent Trent Buchanan. He’s the object of her secret desires, but he’s also a cocky womanizer. She’d rather swim in shark-infested waters with a paper cut than admit she has feelings for him.

A man with one desire…
Wolf Shifter Trent wants Erica more than he’s ever wanted any woman. He’s spent years patiently waiting for her to admit that she wants him too. Working one-on-one in a race to find a serial killer, Trent’s patience and Erica’s resolve wear thin. When Trent discovers the truth about Erica, will he accept her for who she is? And can he protect her from the horrors that her gift brings?

A case that pushes them to the edge…

Erica will have to risk it all if she wants to stop the killer, and when she does, Trent may have to put his own life on the line to make sure his mate is protected…

My opinion:
          An enjoyable story, i loved the idea of a federal paranormal unit and the characters are excellent. However even if i did love this book there were some elements that bothered or annoyed me a little more.
For example, the fact that the members of the team ignore each other specificities sound strange to me, it's supposed to be done so that if one is captured he or she can't reveal anything....bof that case seems less possible than a member of the team needing help because of his or her specific talent. Also for me if you put your life in danger being protected by your partners is essential and that's not possible if there isn't a real trust.
However the story was written so that i could forget that point and focus on the investigation and story itself...which revealed others problems for me.  First, the culprit was too easy, it was really obvious so i was annoyed that professional like them didn't connect the dots sooner. The investigation was too slow in that domain, now if we take into account that Erica does feel what the victims feel i guess we can understand her mind being slower to realize things after that.

Nevertheless, Erica disappointed me...yes she had a difficult life and her " gift" isn't an easy one but for me it was even more reason to act differently. She is attracted to Trent, that's great, he is her mate , she doesn't know it etc etc all that  oki but jumping to bed with him when she doesn't trust him...a big NO for me. For me trust must come first and she doubt him and his reasons nearly until the end so just jumping to bed with him and not only once sounded wrong to me. The fact that Trent didn't hesitate to have adventures before fin ding is mate was also disturbing as i do prefer my wolf loyal and patient ( so yes i would have preferred he waited THE one, instead of enjoying his life until he did)

I know it seems to be a lot of negative point and in a sense it is but it's only about  personal preference. Put aside it's a good story and i had a good time reading it. It does have a lot of steamy parts if you love those , if you don't you can skip most of them and still enjoy the story a lot.
I do want to discover more about the team so i'm happy to have book 2 ready. Milly Taiden sure has a  great writing style and i do have several others of her book on my list so i will be happily jumping in another of her story sooner than later.

Score:  3,5/5
