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…

I was a bit scared going into this one because I didn’t finish Shadow Reaper. I’m so glad I took a chance and requested this one! My mind was made up when I saw it was going to be about Giovanni. I was always interested in his story and Christine didn’t disappoint.
Giovanni was hurt and can’t ride in the shadows, so while he heals so he is to be a decoy in the media as a player while his brothers do the family work. Giovanni hates that he can’t ride in the shadows and is sick of partying every night. He ends up seeing Sasha and knowing that he found his other half when their shadows connect.
Let me get this off my chest, Giovanni is a damn angel and deserves nothing but good things in his life. He was nothing but pure and I fell for this character quicker than Sasha did. He was kind, giving (in more ways than one), and would do anything for Sasha. If you thought that Stefano was crazy over the top about Francesca, then let me welcome you to Giovanni. He thought the sun rose and set on Sasha and showed her every day. He also had a huge heart.
Sasha moved to Chigao to get her brother the best help she could afford. He was in a car accident and was hit by a drunk driver years ago. She worked two jobs to afford the health center where he was. What she didn’t know what that both of her jobs were in Ferraro territory. what I loved about her was that she didn’t take any shit! She wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself and wasn’t afraid to defend those she loves.
Remeber when I said that Shadow Rider had a ton of sex? Well, this book is dripping in it! The chemistry between these two was burning hot and was there from the first moment that they met. They couldn’t keep their hands off one another!
So the reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars was because of Sasha. I know she wasn’t used to the life of the Ferarros and was a little hesitant about falling in love Giovanni so soon, I get that! She stayed hesitant for a long time, but she was down to have wild and crazy sex with him. When Giovanni would tell her time and time again how he was crazy about her, she would turn it to sex. Although I did like her and thought she was a good character, at times I wanted to shake her like a rag doll.
All in all, I really enjoyed this one! I can’t wait to see who the next book will be about! I have my fingers crossed for Emannuelle!
