Publisher's Summary

One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets of Chicago's shadowy underworld as number one New York Times best-selling 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....

This Heroine was a breath of fresh air!

I’m a 50 year old woman, so I totally get how popular culture has affected women’s self image. However, the Heroines of the first two books were ridiculous. I really got sick of them questioning how their man could really desire them. I was so glad the author changed that theme, in this book. The Heroine did have some self doubt, but it was more at a human level, rather than , “an emotional abuse victim” level.
The plot followed the same path as the previous two books, except the villain wasn’t the obvious person for an obvious reason. Actually, I think the author was trying so hard to make this plot different from book one and two, that the conflict and resolution was pretty slim. If the descriptive violence in the two previous books was a bit too much for your taste, you’ll be happy to know that there is very little violence, in book three.
Some reviewers criticized the slow burn between the H/h in book two, this book is a complete opposite. This couple got hot and heavy quickly.

My biggest complaint about this series is the lack of continuity between the books. I know that this must be difficult for an author that’s writes as many books and series as CF. Therefore, I think she needs to reconsider her choice of Beta readers and editors. Here’s an example of what I mean. In book one, the Heroine, Francesca, decides to quit her job at the deli because she is in danger and does not want to bring that danger to the owners of the deli. She also doesn’t want the reporters that are dogging her heals, to disrupt the business of her friends’ deli. In book two, she is working at the deli again and statements are made that she didn’t allow her husband to pressure her into quitting her job. In book three, the story goes back to the book one version. There is a family discussion in which Francesca is referred to as a “push over” because she gave in and quit her job and did the volunteer work her husband preferred she do. Now it’s likely that most readers/listeners wouldn’t notice or even care about such inconsistencies. However, my type A, neurotic personality get extremely irritated about incorrect details.

Finally, as always, Jim Frangione’s narration was brilliant and I’ve always enjoyed his vocal interpretations.

A stupid game?!! Really?

As I have always enjoyed a Feehan novel, I hate to admit this was a bit of a letdown. This book was basically a long sexathon between Sasha and Giovanni with some exciting bits thrown in between. Where as I am not really knocking the sex scenes per say, I am a reader who is more about the story line and there wasn't much of one here. The only really good thing about this book was Stefano and Francesca's news.

its ok<br /><br />

i loved the 1st and 2nd books. this one was ok. felt like a filler. main female character had a couple of one liners, but over all the characters were flat. Thought Giovanni would have a better story, the other books made him seem like an interesting person, but he had no depth. the reader was great as always, but not even he could make it more than ok.

Same Plot as Others, Lackluster Story

I am tired of two people being destined for each other within the first chapter. It would be nice if they had to struggle first, before falling in-love.

To much sex not enough story

I really enjoyed the first few books but, this book seems to focus on sex instead of the story

Love those shadows

Another great installment of the Shadows series. As always, need to suspend your disbelief regarding how quickly folks meet and connect, but it was a good story. Liked the incorporation of the family and other characters from the prior books.

Series Fan

Love all of Christine Feehan's series -and I am a great fan . In saying that, for this book I was a little disappointed. I feel that some of the underlying story was lost by too much emphasis on the sex scenes. I love a great sex scene when it's part of the story but feel that something is missing when it dominates the storyline.
