A review for The Romance Reviews.

CANYON SHADOWS has a great mix of suspense, interesting characters, and intense sexual chemistry between the main characters.

Shari is a dog trainer in Oregon who's getting ready to meet up with rancher Maco Durant when she's shot at by an unknown assailant. Maco arrives just in time to help Shari and her faithful dog, Ona. Maco is only supposed to be getting two of Shari's trained security dogs, but the heat between them is undeniable.

Maco knows that he should k
As much as I hate to leave a book unfinished I've reached the point that I have so many fantastic books on my to read pile that I'm not going to force myself to carry on with something that I'm not enjoying.

I usually try to make it at least 100 pages before I give up on a story but in this case I only made it 9% of the way through before I had to put it down. It was just pushing too many buttons for me, you can see from my status updates exactly what was bugging me.

I don't think this is a bad bo

Not bad story but her writing style is very amaturish. It's also not cohesive; her descriptions of a scene aren't thorough leaving you distractedly trying to figure out room configurations and body positions. Decent overall story but lacking in any rel depth and you fell very little for the characters.

I couldn't get into this book at all. From the first moment that Shari and Maco meet all they thought about was having sex with each other. I'm good with sex in my books but I want to at least like the people I'm reading about. And that wasn't happening in this book.

It was a good read but lacked something I just could not really place the characters maybe could have been fleshed out a bit more
