One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets of Chicago's shadowy underworld as #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to a series hot enough to burn...
The paparazzi can't get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni Ferraro. But unknown to them--and the women he beds--he's just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider can't hunt in the dark, he'll find his pleasure elsewhere...
Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub where she works, she's fair game--until one of the owners steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He's dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.
The devil at her heels may have finally met its match...
Shadow Keeper continues the story of the Shadow Riders. These men and women can literally meld into the shadows! They can detect lies by crossing shadows with people. Its really unique and I love the world that Feehan has created with this series!
Sasha left the farm in Wyoming in order to get the best care possible for her brother. She is working 2 jobs to pay for his care facility but she would do anything for Sandlin. When she meets Giovanni, sparks fly. However, she doesn’t have the best impression of the manwhore playboy. Giovanni isn’t going to let that stand in his way. I liked that Giovanni wasn’t really such a manwhore. It was a ruse created out of necessity and it was kind of brilliant in its simplicity. Before he can really get to know Sasha, they discover she has a super creepy stalker. This guy is deranged. It was ominous and really helped build the tension. However, the ending felt anticlimactic and a bit abrupt. All that lead up kind of fizzled.
I can’t believe I am going to say this, but my biggest problem was the sex. I love the fated mates thing. That wasn’t the problem. I struggle with how they went from strangers to kinky sex and how they had sex all the time. They didn’t really talk about what was going on, they just had kinky sex with a few random comments about current events. I skimmed so many sex scenes. So many.
I loved the supporting characters and am really excited to continue reading about the Ferraro family. Feehan’s Shadow Riders are fascinating and even with my issues in the book, I was totally caught up in this world of Shadow Keeper!
