Book Review ๐Ÿ“–

Shadow Reaper (Shadow Series) by Christine Feehan

Back Cover…..

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood โ€” 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 โ€” 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…..

Ricco likes fast women and fast cars, well actually he likes the fast cars, but heโ€™s bored with the playboy lifestyle. He wants what his brother Stefano has, but he knows he wonโ€™t find that special woman. He has particular tastes, but heโ€™s beginning to take silly risks, and after a nearly fatal accident, Ricco knows he has to do something…..

Mariko is a woman on a mission, she has to kill Ricco within 2 weeks, or her beloved brother will die (heโ€™s been kidnapped, and Mariko doesnโ€™t know where he is) 

Ricco has the same sensation his brother Stefano has upon meeting Francesca, an unlocking sensation in the region of his heart. This model that he interviews is the woman heโ€™s been waiting for. 

Together they find a common ground, shibari (a form of rope tying) he likes to tie people up, and photograph them, and Mariko has found the art form beautiful, she wants to experience it for herself, her mother was a rope model, but Ricco frightens her, sheโ€™s worried that he will consume her, but as the trust grows, she wants to be his, she wants to walk by his side, forever …… 

The second book in the series has us meeting the second oldest brother Ricco, he is an adrenaline junkie, but a near accident almost ends his life. Heโ€™s rope tying keeps him grounded, so he looks for a model, no one really interests him until his shadow โ€œconnectsโ€ with Mariko. 
But Mariko is hiding a secret, and one that could change their relationship. 

We also find out about both Marikoโ€™s and Riccoโ€™s past. Both have had it rough, so together they can heal each other.
