She doesn’t want him. He doesn’t need her. Like hell…

Destin Mortin’s psychic gift comes with an ugly twist—she excels at tracking down violent rapists. But it’s rough on relationships. Once, her partner Caleb was her everything: filter, shield, rescuer, lover. The only man who didn’t think her a freak. Then he walked away.

Destin turned her back on the FBI to work for a private agency, but now a particularly horrendous case has come up, and her boss wants her paired with only the best.

For Caleb Durand, leaving Destin was an act of self-preservation. Every time she flung herself headlong into dangerous situations, every time he nursed her through soul-crushing visions, he’d died a little more inside.

Now they are forced to work together one last time. Tragedy has changed them both, but Caleb knows if he lowers his shields for an instant, he won’t have an icicle’s chance in hell of resisting the temptation to lose himself in her wild power.

But to catch the rapist, it’s exactly what he’ll have to do.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

This was my first foray into the world of Shiloh's FBI psychics, and I now wonder what has taken me so long.

The concept is fabulous, one that I've enjoyed from other series in the past, psychics working to solve crime, and the characters truly make the story come alive. Destin is a an ex-FBI psychic now working for a private firm. Her ability is unique, she can get into the heads of sex offenders and work with victims to see their suppressed and blocked memories to catch the bad guys, After 5 years of unrest, she is confronted once again by the love of her life and forced to work with him to catch a serial rapist.

Caleb is an FBI psychic, his ability being able to filter. He is also almost preternaturally observant - a great trait for an agent, not always so great for a boyfriend. Five years ago he was forced to leave Destin because their connection was so strong it was literally hurting him and he was afraid that it would ruin him, her, and anyone they were charged to protect. He never stopped loving her though, and this strange job he was called in to consult on could be the start of something new for them - if he can just get her to listen.

Action packed, sexy, emotionally charged and thrilling, The Unwanted was an incredible read and spurned my purchase and preorder of the rest of the books in the series. Highly recommended.
