Review Copy Source:

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 LOVED SHADOW RIDER and I had a hard time getting into SHADOW REAPER, so I was very hesitant to read SHADOW KEEPER.

I will admit that Giovanni doesn't start out SHADOW KEEPER on the right foot. In fact, he was a total douche. The author tries to rationalize his behaviour, but really there isn't an excuse for it and I think this scene could have easily not been included and it would have made the book better. Looking past that Giovanni did grow on me. I liked Sasha from the moment she was introduced. She had her moments of irrational stubbornness that got herself and others in trouble, but I really enjoyed learning about her.

I absolutely love the Farraro family. I love their interactions and I love the way they support everyone. They are always such an integral part of each Shadows book and you can't help but root for each of them even when they aren't the main focus.

The stalker storyline of SHADOW KEEPER was both suspenseful and horrible at the same time. I couldn't imagine having to go through what the characters did in this book. The horror of knowing someone has been in your space and touched your things and is waiting for the perfect moment to do horrible things to you and those you love. Just horrible.

SHADOW KEEPER was a hit for me. I am once again excited to read what comes next. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
