I have to say that I quite appreciate this series and its take on mutant human beings and the social ramifications of such. This is not a nice world where acceptance and harmony abound - it’s rife with prejudice, hate, and fear - along with the injustice done to a subset of humanity whose only crime is being different.

Tasked with trying to bring the Enhanced equal rights by positive exposure and a meaningful contribution to society, is the FBI team headed by Talon. They’re still working o

This series continues to be fun and thrilling. I love the plot and the world building, and I certainly adore all the main players involved in this innovative M/M alt-universe sci-fi series.

I loved the evolution of Finn and Talon’s relationship in this sequel. Although the idiots spent half the story not communicating properly, I forgave them because they’re still awesome, loveable characters. There were a few touch-and-go moments when they almost let their personal insecurities and fears

This series keeps its promise!!!

Imagine my fist bump when I discovered that Who We Truly Are picks up right where Five Minutes Longer left us. Not only plotwise, but also in being as amazing as the first book.


Okay, okay, it was more of an excited squee - umm, internally of course - than anything else, but who wants to quibble over details... ;-)

It was as good as I expected it to be !! Now first things first. You have to read book 1 before you read this one. Even I read them in order so that's saying something :P They are not stand alone books.

I absolutely love this awesome team of "enhanced" and one regular yet amazing human.

This story picks up shortly after the events in Five Minutes Longer. Young enhanced boys are going missing and it’s up to our heroes to find out why. Talon, still reeling from the effects of the manifestation of his new powers, is trying to come to terms with how he truly feels about Finn. It doesn’t help that their current mission puts Finn in danger. He’s terrified that Finn will be hurt, or worse, killed by whomever is behind the kids’ disappearances. Finn, however, is excited abou

So.Dam.Good.

This Book 2 storyline starts approximately 8 weeks after Book 1 finished. Talon is still reeling about what happened to Finn and to say that he’s not handling it well, is putting it mildly. But that’s not the only problem he has to contend with, enhanced children are disappearing and his own abilities seem to be evolving and he’s convinced it's not in a good way…….

The range of emotions that went through me when reading, left me an emotional wreck. Firstly my heart got shredded from t

A wonderful sequel to Five Minutes Longer! And just as good.

In this Finn and Talon have been together for a couple of months now when Finn is asked for an undercover mission to find out what’s been happening to some missing Enhanced kids.

Finn gets asked to pose as a 17 year old and go undercover at a group home. But Talon doesn’t want Finn to go since he could get hurt..

I loved how protective Talon was of Finn, despite him making an ass of himself and hurting Finn by telling him he sho

Part 2 of the “enhanced series” : it continues just where we were left in Five Minutes Longer.

So, let’s resume : the setting is in a world with some kids waking up one day with a scar on their cheeks, proof they’ve just acquired some superhuman capabilities. For decades, these enhanced humans are mostly feared and greatly prejudiced. Mentalities and laws are slowly changing and the new FBI unit called HERO, a team with enhanced humans lead by Talon and paired so far with Finn, a regular human, h

I liked the first book better even if I am going to rate them the same. My three stars will just not do it.

I am very intrigued by the paranormal part of this book maybe just because it is similiar to xmen. Not only the crazy gifts the people have but also the one enhanced who thinks they should run the world - who comes there in our minds *coughmagnetocough*.

The relationship between Talon and Finn is kind of hard to get for me to be honest, there is a little too much fighting against his own fe

I loved this book.

There’s already so many well written reviews that this book doesn’t need mine. What I will add is that I expected this book to belong to another member of the team. I figured each one would get their own book and while that would be good because I’m intrigued by them all. It does then run the risk becoming a little formulated.
So I was thrilled and surprised to discover this is yet again Talon and Finns book. I say that but we still get loads of the other guys.

This is the second book in the new M/M PNR series, Enhanced.

Another great installment in this artfully developed world. Who We Truly Are picks up where Five Minutes Longer left off. I don't recommend reading them out of order since book 1 sets up the world, the characters and the dynamics. Book 2 focuses on the same couple as the first book.

It was great to back with Talon and Finn as they try to come to terms with their abilities, their past and their present.

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 getti

Who We Truly Are is the second book in the Enhanced series by Victoria Sue and this story just gets better and better. I love the humor and fun in these books, and the hot and sexy dynamic between Finn and Talon is just icing on the cake. Seriously, if you’re looking for a great paranormal romance the Enhanced series is just what you need. Just make sure you read Five Minutes Longer first before jumping into this book. (In fact this review has some spoilers from the first book - so be warned.)

You know how sometimes pictures of fast food make it seem so good and tasty and then the real thing arrives and it’s not quite that attractive?
You start eating it anyway and the taste doesn’t seem too bad at first, but the more you eat the more you notice all that’s wrong with it, because you’re not starving anymore and you can actually taste it for what it is.

Ok, I'm not sure how much more I can rave about the talents of Nick J. Russo so I'm probably going to keep it short and sweet when I say "I love Nick J. Russo. He's totally one of my favorite narrators' and for me he's totally rocked this series and as long as he's the narrator this series for me without a doubt is an auto-buy."

OHMYGHOSH I loved this! I think I loved it maybe a bit more than the first book, because I LOVE books where we get to see the couple become more than just a newly-together, newly-in-love type of couple, I love reading about what comes next. I LOVE that we got more of Finn and Talon in this rather than going to a new couple right away. And I love that we got to see them work things out and realize that they are good enough for the other and deserving of that love.

I liked this one more than I did the first, as the second book has the story arc hitting a better, more comfortable stride, plus there's a more interesting case for the team to investigate. I liked the team dynamics and the character growth as well; wasn't sure how Finn could love someone that didn't seem to trust him, or have faith in him, that didn't treat him as an equal - the walking hotness that is Talon aside - and I'm glad he confronted that...in himself and with Talon.

This is the second book in the "enhanced" series by this author. I strongly suggest reading the first book, Five Minutes More, before taking on this book. I really liked the first book in the series -- this book not so much.

In the last book in the series, there is a short side plot concerning the kidnapping of kids who have enhanced abilities. Well, in this book, they are following up on that theme. Finn is designated to go into a boy's home for unwanted enhanced children. He supposedly is able

Review written for The Blogger Girls.

The story of the H.E.R.O. Team continues here with the guys facing some new challenges. You really should read the first book to see how it all came about, but Ms. Sue does a great job at filling in a new reader or refreshing a previous reader’s mind with the important details.

There are a few things going on at this point in the story. The team as a whole is trying to prove their worth which is still difficult with various people opposing them for one reason

This is a continuation of book one and is NOT a standalone.

While Talon and Finn had come together in book one, this story helps to more deeply cement their bond. It’s not quite “forever” until the end because Talon has so many fears about commitment. In this book we get to seem him work through all those emotions that we only glimpsed in book one. (And some super hot smexy times!)

We also get to really meet the team and learn more about their program and how life as an Enhanced really is. This is

Yeah, this was just ok, and barely that. I cringed so much reading this story. I simply do not understand how these men are still alive. They are so hopelessly dumb!!!!! How is it possible they can't think of things earlier, possible solutions, or possible problems to plans they make. I saw flaws left and right and still they manage to survive. My eyes hurt from all the rolling they did. I can't say I recommend this.

The basis for the series is good, but the execution, for me, was poorly done. F
