REVIEW: 3.5 Stars for In His Shadow by Tiffany Snow

Posted December 6, 2014 by FMA in 3 Star - It left me craving for more!

In His Shadow (The Tangled Ivy Trilogy #1)In His Shadow by Tiffany Snow
Ivy Mason is hiding—from her past, from herself, and from anyone who could love her. The only kind of love she’s ever known hurts, leaving scars on her body and soul. Now, her world may be boring and predictable, but that’s exactly what she wants. Until Devon Clay walks into her life.

A lonely man in a deadly profession, Devon works as an agent for an underground British agency known only as the Shadow. Nothing about him is safe or ordinary. The danger that consumes his life turns into an addiction Ivy can’t resist…even if it proves fatal.

As Ivy’s past begins to catch up with her, she wonders if love really is the twisted thing she’s always thought it was. Maybe it could be more with this man, who’s shown her that she doesn’t need to protect herself from everyone. Is what she feels for Devon worth the risk? He may save her heart or break it, if she manages to stay alive.


My Review

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

I had never read a Tiffany Snow book before so I didn’t know what to expect when this became available for review. What I did know is I love romantic suspense novels – which this book is, and Ms. Snow has a huge following. Those two factors alone had me intrigued and wanting to read this book.

We’re all products of our past,” Devon said. “What we choose to do with it is our decision, no one else’s. You can choose to be manged, fragile. Or you can choose to be more than the broken elements of your psyche. Fire tempers steel. Pain tempers character.”

This was certainly a book mixed with suspense and erotic moments about a “damaged” young woman who falls for a “deadly” young man. The suspense comes in trying to figure out who he is and what his purpose in her life is. The relationship that develops between them comes hot and fast.

While I had some difficulty relating to the story line and the characters because of the “unbelievablility” factor, I did like the writing and can certainly see what the author has the following she does.
