#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her scorching-hot series starring a Chicago crime family that has built its empire in the shadows…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood—but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own…

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her—a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She’s someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco’s embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them…

As per Goodreads’ it ought to have taken me 7 hours and 53 minutes to peruse Shadow Reaper. All things considered, it just took this critic 5 hours to finish up Shadow Reaper the second title in Christine Feehan new series Shadow Riders.

A Little piece of advice. Figure out how to put a book down, particularly on the off chance that you should work the next morning. All things considered, this advice might be for me more than all you the readers. In any case, on to my review.

Shadow Reaper is a tension, thriller, romantic suspense. (Attempt to state that three times genuinely quick.) 😊 Told in the third person. Nothing stunning up until this point… right! All things considered, the stunning part is I was reluctant on obtaining this book. Yes, K. Yearwood who never missed a Christine Feehan new release almost didn’t buy a title in light of mixed reviews of Shadow Reaper. Try not to misunderstand me I would have read the book regardless, however, as opposed to buying, I would have gone to my nearby library and obtained the title. I took a risk and it paid off.

Shadow Reaper was past extraordinary. Only I could give Shadow Reaper more than five stars!
I am so eager in the wake of reading Shadow Reaper that I will try not to give excessive spoilers.

This story is about one of the many siblings of Stefano Ferraro whom we had the delight of meeting in Shadow Rider.

Ricco Ferraro’s story starts with a terrible fender bender, with just his sister-in-law, Francesca Ferraro, spouse to Stefano, trusting that he didn’t do it deliberately. Afterward, it was discovered that a specific part was defective.

The huge mystery wasn’t….Why did the accident happen? It wasn’t even….Who, was behind it? Despite the fact, that it ought to have been. It was…When! That is right. Ricco had an enormous mystery that he was keeping from his family. Now 10 years after the fact, he is forced to reveal his secret in order to save their lives.

Shadow Reaper was quick paced and I couldn’t put the book down until the last page was turned. Yes, I surrendered four hours of rest. In any case, I don’t regret not one moment of it. I would have kicked myself on the off chance that I would have put off reading Shadow Reaper.

So, in case you’re uncertain if you ought to buy this title. Give me a chance to be the one to comfort your psyche. Purchase the book you, you will love it.

For those of you who are Christine Feehan’s fans. Which I do include myself among the ranks. Christine Feehan went hard and fast on making Shadow’s Reaper the best so far in her new series. IMOP

There it is. All finished. I didn’t give too much away… did I? 😊

Pick up your copy of Shadow Reaper to meet the baddest family in town!

Romantic Suspense BESTSELLER • Will his choice mean certain death to the woman he promised to protect? In Sheila Kell’s passionate novel of deception and desire, a smoking-hot enforcer and a determined reporter are destined to make choices that will change everything.

Every choice requires a decision, but some choices are determined by the heart.

Enforcer AJ Hamilton is no longer on the right side of the law. Tangled up with Baltimore’s largest crime boss, he has been tasked to threaten bothersome reporter, Megan Rogers. After a heated encounter, his attraction to her is as unexpected as it is unwanted. Failing to warn her off, AJ is forced to protect her from her stubborn self as well as his criminal boss.

Saving Megan from the clutches of certain death, AJ’s no longer sure which side he’s fighting for. With tensions high, their passion flares as they battle to stay one step ahead of the criminal mastermind The Magician. As their plan to expose him unfolds, AJ is forced to make a choice. But no matter the option he chooses, he may not be able to protect her or their hearts.

***

Before I get into review for those of you who chosen to avoid HIS Desire, I will give you a little back story on AJ Hamilton.

AJ Hamilton “FBI Special Agent” Brother to Jesse Hamilton and ex-partner to one Kate Ross – Hamilton. Who aided on the capture of the individual who was seeking revenge on his sibling Jesse by pursuing his partner Kate.
Toward the conclusion of HIS Desire AJ’s family discovered that he went covert and now their scrambling to figured out what happened to their missing brother. And hopes that he knows that wherever he is, Hamilton Investigation and Security (HIS) will soon find him and bring him safely home.

I am coming to love Sheila Kell universe of HIS. Every one of the characters from the principal book (HIS Desire) tagged along for the fun and experience of HIS Choice.

What a perfect name “HIS Choice”, I ought to state for the second title in Sheila Kell’s HIS. Since that is the thing that one AJ Hamilton has done and will do all through this book. Settling on decisions that will touch his life as well as Megan Rogers as well.

HIS Choice opens with Megan Rogers needing to comprehend what happed to her sibling who disappeared yet later was discovered dead. Being an Investigator Reporter will come in handy in solving the mystery.

Megan Rogers knows the outcome and that only one error on her part could lead her to either vanishing or winding up simply like her sibling. In any case, she won’t let that stop her. She should for her parents’ piece of mind, however, more so for herself, discover who the secret individual behind the Magic Shop for that was the situation her sibling was chipping away at before he disappeared.

AJ went covert to discover who’s the mastermind behind the Magic Shop and to bring the entire organization to justice. By going covert, he knew, it implied doing things that conflict with the grain of profound quality. Conflicting with everything that HIS stands for.

He knew to guarantee that he left this mission alive and have Megan remaining close to him, he should turn into that individual…an individual for which HIS doors will always stay open for business. In the meantime, he should ensure that he doesn’t lose his actual self en route.

HIS Choice was another astounding romantic suspense, which will have you shake your head in in awe about who the driving force behind the Magic Shop truly was.

I was coming to love the Hamilton family by the closure of HIS Desire. In any case, after perusing HIS Choice I can authoritatively say that I adore them. The way Sheila Kell composes these characters you can’t resist the urge to become hopelessly enamored. Indeed, even the auxiliary characters leave along enduring impression well after the story closes.

I am coming to see an example on how Sheila Kell will end every one of her books in this series. Yes, Sheila Kell has done it once more. In any case, with this cliffhanger and the following title in the series… HIS Return, I at long last will have my answers to my burning questions; What happen to their Foster sibling and What made him leave the way he did?

I gave HIS Desire four stars, not because I felt that the book lacked something. But to leave space for the following title to Wow me. And that it has done in a huge way. With all the curve and turns and that conclusion! HIS Choice merit the stars I gave and somewhat more.

On the off chance that you are going back and forth about perusing Sheila Kell’s HIS. Give this reviewer a chance to comfort you and take a risk on the HIS series and realize that you won’t have buyer remorse.

HIS CHOICE is the second book in the HIS romantic suspense series. If you like thrilling, edge of your seat reading with sizzling sex scenes, then you’ll love each installment of Sheila Kell’s best-selling series.

Romantic Suspense BESTSELLER • Will his stubbornness prevent him from trusting the woman he desires? In Sheila Kell’s provocative novel of suspicion and need, a handsome security specialist and a feisty FBI agent are tied by grief and attraction… and the fervor of the unknown.

He’s stubborn. She’s independent. Together, desire will determine their future.

Hamilton Investigation & Security leader, Jesse Hamilton, swears never to love again. The risk of losing his heart is too painful. Burying himself in work and caring for his daughter, he doesn’t expect strong-willed FBI Special Agent Kate Ross to break down his carefully constructed walls.

When Kate is injured, Jesse pulls the full force of HIS into action to protect her. He refuses to be the reason behind another senseless death. Making a decision that could cost Kate her life, Jesse must decide just how far he’s willing to go to save the woman his heart desires.

FBI Special Agent Kate Ross was attempting to keep her appreciation for her partner’s sibling a mystery. Jesse Hamilton promises to never love again after a corner store robbery left him bringing up his little baby girl alone. Be that as it may, he wasn’t expecting to be attracted to one Kate Ross.

Presently both their lives will come full circles. With one shot of a projectile from a drive-by shooter. The race is on to make sense of Why the individual needed both murdered.

HIS Desire was a speedy carefree enterprise, loaded with a lot of tension, a heap of chemistry between the two fundamental characters. In Sheila Kell first book in HIS Series. We discover that only an appearance or believing that a man or woman is appealing can be hazardous to the next individual wellbeing.

I was enchanted in reading His Desire. The plot was immersing and in the communication amongst Jesse and Kate was beguiling. I adored how Sheila Kell finished His Desire, it set up the story to her next title in HIS series “HIS Choice” the story about Jesse’s sibling, and Kate’s partner … AJ Hamilton.

HIS Desire is the first stand-alone book in the HIS Series with a happy ending for Jesse and Kate.

Beyond Reason (Texas Trilogy #1)

Beyond Reason (The Texas Trilogy) by [Martin, Kat]Beyond Reason by Kat Martin

My rating:

Publisher: Zebra

Sold By: Penguin Random House Publisher Services

Publication Date: May 30, 2017

Print Length: 400 pages


Five weeks ago Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats and the fear of failure, Carly has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.

Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.

But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.

Beyond Reason is a third persona story composed by Kat Martin. The setting was disheartening since the opening happens at a memorial service. One of Drake’s workers was murder and the truck commandeered. Do the police have a thought who the offenders were, or do they even truly mind. Thus, the obligation is dependent upon Carly to discover. With the assistance of a companion of her granddad. Carly and Linc go on a high-octane ride to discover who, and why of this riddle.

For a puzzle anticipation Beyond Reason was an alright read. I particularly appreciated the result of this story. I haven’t perused an excessive number of books by Kat Martin. Be that as it may, I may need to keep my eyes out for the second book in this new Texas Trilogy. Because I see with regards to mystery and suspense she knows how to catch a person attention.

First in a chilling new paranormal romantic suspense series from award-winning author Abbie Roads

He’s found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

I was totally shocked by this book. If this book wasn’t categorized as a romance I would have sworn I was reading a thriller and a dark one at that.

It was the cover that lured me in. But after reading this bone-chilling, paranormal suspense thriller. Yes, I said a paranormal suspense thriller. Abbie Roads has put together one energetic book that would start her new series Fatal Truth on a high note.

Cain Killion knew that he might be one step away from being a serial killer just like his father. His only saving grace is he uses his gift with blood to take the edge off. Until one crime scene became all too familiar. With a haunting symbol linking the crime to his past and only one person would know what it means.

Some say that a person could take a lot before they go mentally insane. And what Mercy Ledger went through…witnessing her family being murder by the hands of Cai’s father should have done it. But Mercy was a resilient person. But when Cain and Mercy past comes back to haunt them will it kill them or drive both over the deep end.

I’ve read only two other books by Abbie Road and those where her Fatal Dreams Series, I must say that Saving Mercy tops either one of those. The plotline flows flawlessly without missing a beat.

I would recommend this book, it certainly had it all. I wouldn’t recommend it as a light reading material before bed.

My Review: Normally I tell you what the books is about then tell you why I gave the rating that I did. For this review I am going to change it up a little.
Seal Brotherhood: Lucas is 5 stars all the way. It made you love the main characters Lucas and Marcy but at the same time made you hate one of the secondary characters, that would be Lucas soon to be ex-wife. I don’t know how or why Lucas would even want to have Connie back. Plus I hope Lucas gets smart and file for custody of their two kids Connie seems flighty to me. It was very steamy read with a bit of thriller suspense.
Lucas thought his leaving situation was temporary and that his wife would soon come to her senses and that he soon would be back home. The next morning he gets served with divorce papers. At the same time his soon to be ex-wife is on the mission to liquidate all their real estate holdings even the ones she doesn’t have any claim on by hiring Realtor Marcy Gelland.
Marcy Gelland tries to help Connie, but soon finds herself falling for Lucas. That is when the story takes off on all five cylinders. Once Lucas and Marcy gets together, Lucas has to go on a mission to stop a terrorist group from succeeding in their mission to take men from Seal Team 3 or Team 5 back with them. However, things start to go south when the terrorist group kidnaps women and one of them happens to be Marcy.
