I felt somewhat cheated when the author repeated whole chapters from the first book as a way of giving background for this one. Actually, this story is the very same story as the first book in the series. In both books a super-macho man meets an equally macho woman and they fall in love at first sight. They save the world together and take turns saving each others' lives while being totally preoccupied with their lust for each other. The main characters of the first book traded places with the s ...more

Disclaimer: Received this book from the author for the purposes of writing a review.

Creating a sequel to a brilliant book is tough, but Lyons far exceeded expectations with Lost in Shadows. The second Shadow Ops book is set only a month after the fast paced action of Chasing Shadows and picks up right where the first book left off. This fast paced novel grabs your attention from the first page and doesn’t let go.

I loved this book. It was full of action, adventure and romance. This was the story of Lucky and Vinnie but I enjoyed all the characters. The Preachers plot to cause death and destruction kept me rooting for the good guys. The cliff hanger ending had me wanting more. I'll admit it I'm hooked. I want more!

So enjoyed this book. It had humor, suspense and romance. The characters were believable and the writer kept you in suspense until the end. Ions of the main reasons I enjoy this authors books is she does not rely on foul and vulgar language and blasphemy to make her points. Her story and dialogue is Stong enough and such and enjoy,England to read.

Lost in Shadows review

Lost in Shadows is the second very exciting romantic suspense book in the Shadow Ops series written by w C. J. Lyons.
This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it. It is my first Cj Lyons book.After reading it I bought several more of her books. She is a highly talented author. This book is the second in the series of Shadow Ops, the first is Chasing Shadows. I wish I had read that one first, though it's not completely necessary as the book does give a brief review of what happened prior. Though I would recommend you read Chasing Shadows first so that you understand all about the organization and the other ...more
Simply love this book!!! I have read it now 3 or 4 times. It gets better with each read. This time i alternated the kindle book & Audiobook. It was nice listening to it this time. I picked up things this time around that I missed with previous reads. CJ Lyons is an awesome. novelist!!! I was sad to see this series end after book 3. This is an excellent romantic suspense with humor, action, adventure, blackop intrigue, & erotic sizzling sex scenes. It also has a very very BAD villain you ...more

Good second entry in the Lost in Shadows series. The unit is a shadow, dark-operating unit working in the US.

Lucky Cavanaugh is a unique ATF agent in that he went up against the shadowy militia leader called The Preacher and lived. His heart will never be the same due to the man's prowess with a reworked stun gun, but Lucky is alive. He is the only one around in the office late on evening and a fellow ATF agent wants backup for a buy and bust sting from the Crusade, Preacher's group. They are im

A great sequel to Chasing Shadows...plenty of action, suspense and another couple that just seems perfect for each other. Lucky and Vinnie had both closed off emotionally after devastating events. I loved the previous connection they shared on the bus with Lucky's mom. Vinnie and Lucky balanced each other well and I loved that Vinnie was just as strong willed as KC. I enjoyed reading the Shadow Ops books and only wish that Lyons had continued on with series since there were so many loose ends le ...more

Lucky is my Favorite Shadow Chaser!!!! I loved his character in the first book and I love him even more in this book. Vinnie is my favorite character in all 3 books. She is one tough lady and together they made a great team. This book was filled with action, pain, love, and downright evil characters. There is not a lot of hot sex, but there are some very interesting twists and turns. I loved trying to figure out what the bad guys were up to and how the good guys were going to stop them. I love i ...more

C J Lyons has an amazing talent for writing detailed, in-dept, riveting stories that hold on the reader from the first pages. I was unable to put this book down. The main characters of Lucky and Vinnie are well written and will draw the reader into their lives. Wonderfully tied to the first book, although there is enough overlap with the story that it is not necessary to have read the first book. Looking forward to reading the final of the trilogy.... Again, well done on a fantastic book, CJ Lyo ...more

omg this was an adventure and a half...

bomb makers, snow, mountains, skiing and poor lucky never stood a chance...lucky for him though he met someone who could get him off the mountain..thats if the preacher doesnt kill him first..

rather tense adventure this one...all the elements i love, skipped over the romance part always spoils a good movie that as well...but i would recommend this trilogy..

now onto the finale

I'm hooked

CJ Lyons' 2nd book in the Shadow Ops series has me more connected to the characters and their mission than I could've imagined.
This nonstop thriller adventure combines a great story with believable characters, though I do despise The Preacher!! Another awesome job CJ - you make me want to return to special ops !!!!

I love action and adventure and this had plenty of that. I think that the romance angle is just somewhat too obvious, but I do like happy endings. I've read the first two in the series and enjoyed them, but not sure I'll give in to the 3rd one.

To put Al Qaeda and PETA in one sentence and on the same level is quite something. I had to re-read this sentence because I could not believe it.
That was it for me. DNF.

This book was good but I didn't like how the first couple chapters were repeated from the 1st book.

Great followup to the first one. They seemed to fit really well together, and loved the connection from years before with his mom:)

This was another good book. All the way through the book you are waiting for the other shoe to drop. I am now reading the last book in the series.

Plot was quite confusing to me and half way through I had to skipped it to the end so that I could read the ending.
