Shadow Warrior (Shadow Series) by Christine Feehan
Grace Murphy has always been drawn to Vittorio Ferraro — or at least to the billionaire’s public bad boy persona. Now that she’s under his protection and the sole focus of his intense caring, she can’t help wanting to get as close to him as possible. But Grace knows her presence is putting the entire Ferraro family in danger. Her monster of a brother will never let her go, but Vittorio has no intention of losing the woman whose shadow matches his own…
My Review …..
Vittorio is the largest of the brothers, he’s also the peacemaker, but Vittorio is also a volcano waiting to erupt, he thinks he will never find a woman of his own, he needs to be the center of her world, like she will be his, he will want to control her, but make her happy at the same time. We wants a wife and kids, he wants a home he can’t wait to return to.
Grace is an events planner, and a good one.
She’s also an independent, free thinking woman, but Grace is also scared, anyone she shows an interest in dies. So she makes no friends, she doesn’t smile at anyone, she doesn’t give her stalker the satisfaction of seeing someone she knows die (and they don’t die quick) she could turn to her brother, but as he’s her stalker it’s a little difficult. He’s not her real brother, but meeting him in a foster home, they soon became friends and allies, but little did Grace know he would take his protection of his “sister” too far!!!
So the book reminded me of a master and slave book, but without the “bondage” Vittorio likes to control all aspects of their lives, but as Grace is a submissive she’s ok with it, in fact she’s happy to hand over all decision making over to Vittorio.
The “brother” who took their sibling bond “too far” was really well written, very creepy (we don’t usually get too many bad guys who can blend and fool our hero too often) and there was no redeeming quality about him, he took Grace’s love for her brother and totally abused it.
It was great catching up with the rest of the family, the sister is definitely one I will want to read, her love for the “wrong man” has spanned a few years, and now she’s broken hearted, but not down. It will be good to see how that turns out.
I must admit, there is a fair amount of sex🙄and I did skip a few pages. But the action and story did make it worth the read.
