Shadow’s Pleasure – Molle McGregor

Shadow's Pleasure

I received an ARC of this book in exchange of my honest opinion. All thoughts are 100% my own. I was not compensated in any way. You can find my reviews for the prequel here and book 1 here.

Blurb

Shadow’s Pleasure is Book Two in the Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Romance Series : The Shadow Warders

Brought together by circumstance. Bound together by chance. Despite the danger, passions ignite…

Sequestered for over ten years and manipulated by those that were supposed to love and protect her, Sorcha wants nothing more than her freedom. When her childhood friend and two other Shadows are kidnapped and held by a sadistic Director hell-bent on changing the very nature of their existence, Sorcha knows it’s past time to escape. With the help of the sinfully sexy Kiernan Black, she finally gains her independence, but the depths of her passion for the Warder may be more dangerous than the mission to save her friends.

As a Warder, Kiernan Black has never turned his back on an innocent. So when one of his own is working with a demon to brutalize innocent Shadows, he knows he must save them. With the beautiful, brave, and infuriatingly stubborn Sorcha Davis as his partner, he embarks on what might be the most dangerous mission of his life. But if he can find a way to make the fiery Shadow his along the way, the rewards could outweigh the risks.

My Thoughts

We don’t see Zach in this book. Though he’s mentioned, he doesn’t make an appearance. But like in the last book, Gabe from the first book is mentioned. Conner and Hannah are also mentioned, but they don’t play a role in this book. We were introduced to Kiernan in the Shadow’s Awakening, and we were made aware that he was the counter to Conner’s good soldier boy. We meet Sorcha as well. The Shadow Sanctuary isn’t the haven for everyone that one assumes at first. But she’s on a mission to find her friends, and since they were last held in Charlotte, Kiernan offers to help her into the Warden occupied town. These two are combustible together. Their relationship is far from smooth and no less deep than the others in this series. I absolutely love Kiernan. He’s the bad boy that everyone loves, and wonderfully enough he found a woman who can keep up with him. I really can’t talk much about this story because it gives too much information up about the over arching storyline. But needless to say, we are introduced to Aiden and Caerwyn. Though there’s nothing said about a story between them, I’m not so certain that there won’t be one in the future.

Molle McGregor’s momentum has yet to waiver. This main story that carries over these books is really interesting and now I’m dying to know just how Druj plans on accomplishing all that he’s planning on accomplishing. On top of that, Shadows, Warders, and Vorati aren’t the only ones out there that humans don’t know. We were just introduced into the Delectavi. Now, I’m DYING to know how they factor into all this. This second book in the series definitely isn’t answering any questions, just bringing the players into play. I’m excited to read more in this series, as if you couldn’t tell. Again, like the others, if you’re looking for a sweet romance, this isn’t the book for you. There are sex scenes and they are graphic, though I’d not call them erotica, as sex isn’t a driving point. But again, adults who are ok with that sort of thing.

About the Author

Molle’s writing career started when she was seven and suffered terrible insomnia. Night after night she couldn’t sleep until long after mid-night, only to wake a few hours later. Frustrated with her inability to just go to bed, (and her penchant for sneaking a book and a flashlight under the covers) her grandmother said, “You like to read so much, why don’t you tell yourself a story until you fall asleep.” With this brilliant advice, Molle’s overactive brain was off and running. Now, years later, she’s finally taught herself to sleep, but she’s never stopped telling stories. Join Molle McGregor’s New Release List and find out about new books and exclusive discounts first!
