Week 20 Review: Shadow Reaper

From Goodreads:
#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...

My Review:
Yeah, this book was just so great! This is only the 2nd book in the series, and it opened up to me, at least, the possibility of this book starring more than just the siblings of the Ferraro family and their significant others being the stars of future books!

It was mentioned Shadow Rider of Ricco's rope tying. I had to look it up, because I hadn't heard of it before these books. But that Ricco and Mariko together, as Rope Master and his subject, they both worked really well together!

They were both connected by an event that scared both of them, emotionally and physically, though she didn't actually remember, because she was a small child, while he was 14. And it's something that's dominated Ricco's life. So it was really great to open that wound up and let it heal properly in this book!

Who the bad guy was, well, guys, since there was more than one, was sad. I also wish it could've been a bit longer, because a great deal of time was spent focused on rescue, and identification as a means to the end, instead of the end itself. So we didn't really get to know the bad guys!

Really fantastic book, I enjoyed it so much, and I can't wait for more from this fantastic series!
