Happy Monday Everyone!
So, I have some news, I know I wasn’t around last week, but I used that time to finish my teaching training, and got my certificate, so that I can now start teaching, once I find a job! I have to admit I am beyond excited and can’t wait to see where this new path leads me. Today I bring you my review of Shadow Flight by Christine Feehan, which will grab your attention and keep you hooked until the very end.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“Chicago’s Ferraro crime family will do anything to protect one of their own in this thrilling entry in the Shadow Riders series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.
Nicoletta Gomez was a terrified teenager when Taviano Ferraro and his brother saved her life. Ever since, she’s been trying to rise above what was done to her, molding herself into a survivor under the protective eyes of the Ferraro family. All the while, she’s been falling hopelessly in love with the man who knows her darkest secrets.…
With one look, Taviano knew that Nicoletta was his, just as he felt their shadows connect. But no matter how much he wanted to claim her, he knew she needed time to become her own woman. When Nicoletta once again finds herself in the sights of dangerous men, a split-second decision has Taviano breaking all of the Ferraro family’s rules to keep her safe. And as far as he’s concerned, the reward is more than worth the risk.”
This book is told from several POVs, mainly Taviano’s and Nicoletta’s, but some of the other characters have a couple of chapters when something happens, but you will have to read the book to find out what that is. I fell in love with the character of Taviano, and loved how strong the character of Nicoletta was. I feel like a lot of authors try to create strong female characters, but sometimes even those characters have to rely on a man to save them, but with Nicoletta she is strong in her own right. The way Taviano shows her support, builds up her strength, and supports her is a thing I wish I could find in a man.
Christina Feehan creates a story that you as the reader will be drawn into and will hold you under her stories spell until the very end. I will warn you that this book does deal with sexual assault, which can be a trigger, but it is done in a way that you shouldn’t let it stop you from reading this amazing story. But I always like to warn people just in case they do get triggered by something, so you aren’t taken by surprise. Although, this is part of a series, you can read it as a standalone, because each character’s stories are so well explained and their own story that you won’t get confused. If you are looking for a romantic story that will hold your attention, make your heart race, make you cry, and make you laugh, then this book is the one for you.
