Shadow Keeper by Christine Feehan ~ Review

One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets of Chicago's shadowy underworld as #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to a series hot enough to burn...

The paparazzi can't get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni Ferraro. But unknown to them--and the women he beds--he's just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider can't hunt in the dark, he'll find his pleasure elsewhere...

Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub where she works, she's fair game--until one of the owners steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He's dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.

The devil at her heels may have finally met its match...

Giovanni Ferraro is recovering from an accident that keeps him from his job as a shadow rider.  He prefers the shadows to playing the playboy all the time.  So when he meets Sasha, he has to dig himself out of the hole he's in....well he first digs deeper and then tries to get out of it.  Hehe.  Poor G.

I do love Giovanni.  He's just as protective and alpha male as his brothers.  He takes care of family.  He protects.  He brings justice.  But he's totally thrown for a loop by Sasha.  And she's not going to let him get away with the stupid game he's playing.  To be fair to G, the women around his family are hunting them but still G.  I loved Sasha for standing up to him.  

This story is endearing.  Sasha is from Wyoming and not used to the world that Giovanni Ferraro lives in.  It's a hard adjustment for her but she soon learns that Giovanni is more about protection. 

Their story follows a path I wasn't expecting.  And I can't really say why without it being spoilery so I'll just say that this aspect of things surprised me.  

I guess I should finally say something about the guys mother.  We met her in book 1 with Stefano and she's been around in each book.  I don't like her in AT ALL.  But in this story she pushed that line.  She seems to think that these incredible men are her doing...which is so far from the truth it is laughable.  She seems to think that she gets to tell them what do to and to look down on others they care about.  I absolutely hate her.  And you know when my emotions are that far involved the character development is excellent.  

I'm currently in a pacing campaign waiting and hoping there will be more in this series.  There needs to be more.  There are other brothers that have stories I want to read.  There's a sister who's story begs to be told.  I hope to read more.

Truly excellent paranormal romance with a side of intrigue, I highly recommend you check it out.
