I'm a huge fan of Robin Bielman's Secret Wishes contemporary romance series but everyone knows I'm a paranormal girl at heart so when I found out she was writing a PNR series I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of the first book Veiled Target. As you can imagine I had high hopes for this story but unfortunately I didn't love it as much a I expected to. There were a lot of things about the book that irritated me but it's really hard to explain why without giving some (fairly mild) spoilers so consider that a warning before you continue reading this review.

My biggest issue was with the main character Tess, she works as an Eliminator which basically means she's a human who is trained to hunt and kill Veilers (supernatural creatures) who cross the line and start to harm others. We are constantly told how kick-ass she is and that she is an expert at fighting but we never, ever see it in action. If you were to print a picture of someone next to the words "Too Stupid to Live" in the encyclopaedia it would have to be a portrait of Tess. She gets herself into one ridiculous situation after the other and I'm sure she only survives until the end of the book on pure luck and because of the sheer stupidity of her enemies. I can't for the life of me figure out how she has survived years as an Eliminator because she should have died numerous times in just this story and there were actually times I was wishing that would happen. Basically Tess is all talk and no action, she'll tell you constantly how much she loves danger and is an adrenaline junkie but when you look at the evidence she has no skill whatsoever.

Veiled Target was a mixed bag for me. I did like Hugh and Tess, but I didn’t get to know them well. I know Tess had a tough childhood, because I was told, I know Hugh had a loss in his past, because I was told. I didn’t feel the emotion of either of these things. It’s as though I read the surface of these characters only. I wanted to get to know them, to FEEL their emotion.

Their reaction to each other at first meeting was fabulous, that I got. The instant connection and attraction was great. The sexual tension was good in spots, but seemed to disappear in places. The same can be said for the angst, it was there and gone too much for me, the switch jarring in places. It seemed almost veiled for me as if I was reading the first and last page of a chapter but missing the heart of the story, things happened, but I got no insight into the characters.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When starting a new book, I can usually tell pretty early on whether I’m going to like it or not, and after reading the opening scene of VEILED TARGET, I knew that Robin Bielman’s brand of action was for me. Chapter one begins with Tess in a face-off against a vampire on an airplane, and ends with her kicking butt and sky diving to safety—I mean, talk about an intro! The main heroine is an adrenaline junkie, and the alpha male is hotter than the fires of Hades, so right off the bat you have all the makings of an excellent Paranormal series. The only thing that slowed this story down was the relationship building, but other than that this novel is a thrill seekers’ dream.

The plot weaves a gripping tale of multi-layered double crosses which makes each character’s motivations difficult to pinpoint. Tess and Hugh both have their own agenda, but so do the supporting sidekicks who really helped transform this book into a complicated game of ‘he said, she said.’ And, just when you think that you’ve got it all figured out, the ending comes out of nowhere and catches you completely by surprise. I love a good guessing game, and VEILED TARGET delivered a whopper on that front. As for the paranormal mythology, it was straight forward and easy enough to grasp. I wish the author would have expanded a bit more on the different qualities of her various supes, and the reasons behind the Night Runners vs. Wolf Seekers war, but I think I got the gist of it.

My first impression of Tess was a good one, and sparks were definitely flying during her initial meeting with Hugh, but after that her personality began to take-on a stalker-ish quality that had me second guessing my original opinion.

I will start by saying I loved this book. Robin Bielman has jumped feet first into a new genre and she does so with a great story.

I was hooked from the first page and loved every minute of it. You will fall head over heels for Hugh and Tess. I fully admit to having developed a bit of a girl crush on her. Oh and Hugh.........swoon worthy.

Rest assured dear reader. This is classic Robin Bielman writing.

Yes it's a paranormal story, but if you enjoy Robin's writing, then you will love this. I can't wait for more.

Like urban fantasy and paranormal romance? Well that’s what you get with this book. I happen to be a big fan of both so I thought it was the perfect read for me. In most ways it was, but had a few minor problems along the way.

Tess Damon is an assassin of what are known as Veilers, otherwise known as paranormal beings. Not just any Veilers, only the ones that are villainous/evil. She works for a secret agency known as P.I.E., and spends the rest of her time doing extreme sports of all kinds. The reader first meets her when she’s aboard a flight with a vampire that is getting ready to kill her. Tied up and ready to be thrown out the open door of the plane, she manages to save herself, but finds herself in trouble with her boss for botching the job. I had a bit of a problem with that because she didn’t really fail, so what did she do that was so wrong? Anyway, under threat of death if she messes up again, he gives her the next assignment. Her target? Wolfen, Hugh Langston, the Alpha of the local wolfen pack, in LA. Tess takes one look and killing him is not what she wants to do with him at all!

I found this book to be more of a paranormal romance with urban fantasy components, because the heart of the story for me was the romance. Tess is described as being pretty kick ass as far as heroines go. I found her to be not quite as kick ass as the author would have us believe. After meeting Hugh on a blind date(big coincidence, right?) she throws herself into his world when one of his wolfen goes missing, even though he tells her NO. Several times. I got a bit irritated with her for awhile after that. Hugh, of course, is the typical Alpha male but also a really nice guy. He ended up being my favorite of the two characters. So why does Tess need to kill him?
