Buy This Book:
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.
I always know when I'm reading a Christine Feehan novel, the characters always come from a traumatic past, they've been victims, they have serious complex issues, the men are mirror images of eachother and the women are always doubly emotional creatures dependent on the love from the men who are obsessed with them and its almost always instant love from the get go and the entire story revolves around them having sex while the rest of the plot simply takes place.
Shadow Reaper was fairly good and felt much like coming home with Feehan's typical formula so I kind of enjoyed it although as the second book in the shadow series it wasn't as good as the first one which kind of bummed me out considering how much I was looking forward to reading Mariko's story. I was hoping she would be just as strong willed as she was in the first book but she felt a little overly too sensitive and a little less independent this time around.
I do like the concept of how the riders use the shadows - I do wish we had spent a lot more time using them. I look forward to reading the next book in the series and hope our riders gain victory.
Until next time book lovers...
