THIS is the book in this series I was most looking forward to. And there is one reason for that. His name is Show. I was intrigued by this man from the start, but after book 2, seeing all that Show went through, I had to know that he would find his happy. I loved the way this turned out.

Show and Shannon meet, and their is chemistry between them from the start. But Show has some things he needs to work out with himself. The last year has been hell for the man. Shannon has a past

Having suffered loss in the war and taking the burden of blame for it, Robert “Showdown” Ryan has nothing left of himself. He is an empty husk of a man, drowning in grief and whiskey, seeking relief in numbness

This one was a little different from the first two. Not as violent, not as gritty. I found it a bit slow at times. But I guess that is the type of guy Show is and I suppose the pace of the story suited him.

Show had a fairly shitty life. His marriage broke up. His family fell apart. He

My sweet, broken Showdown. Gah. That man. I just wanted to wrap him up in love and sunshine, bless his heart, he deserves some happy. Into the Storm was a quiet reprieve from the intense action and brutality of Behold the Stars. This book focuses on Show, dealing with guilt, picking up the pieces and moving forward, with the help of a glamorous redhead with a few secrets of her own.

★★★★☆ 4.5 Weathering the Storm Stars!

Into the Storm is the third part of the Signal Bend series by Susan Fanetti and it tells the story of Robert "Showdown" Ryan and Shannon Bannerman. At first I was afraid Show and Shannon wouldn't be able to live up to the epicness of Isaac and Lilli, who were the centre of book 1 and 2, but they managed to change my mind pretty quickly. Shannon was once again a strong, feisty heroine and Show was a tortured broken hero with a rough exterior but a soft heart.

Oh man, this was a much appreciated breath of fresh air. After all that went down in the first two books I really needed something mellow. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love Show and Shannon and this town and all the people in it. Thank you Ms. Fanetti for making Into the Storm such a beautiful and yet at times heartbreaking experience. Besides me not being able to handle much more of the

re-read August 2017 - Show and Shannon's beautiful story reminds of the pure vulnerability and direct honesty of this series, this writing, and these characters. This story is quite emotional as Show and Shannon's coupling takes unexpected turns and rises from the ashes of their pasts. Loved every minute of it.

Words of wisdom from Gemma, who is the Ultimate Badass Biker Babe.


Into the Storm deals with a broken man who has lost some of the most important people in his life; his family. Sorrow and pain are at an all time high when his family feels they are better off without him. Along the way he has lost his smile and needs someone to help him find it.

This third installment is a more mellower biker book compare to the previous two installments. Move the Sun is a milder version of a hard core biker book
I love Show!

I'm really falling for this series as a whole! Susan Fanetti is absolutely awesome at writing characters, creating personalities and incredible plot. Didn't expect to find an MC series to love as much as Wylde's Reapers series. This one kept me hooked all the way, it was the kind of stay-up-all-night-to-finish kind of book.

Really, they all were incredible. Have nothing more to say. If you like hot alpha males and if you're looking for new book boyfriends, this is the series for you!

I’m in love with the Night Horde MC and Signal Bend. This third book in the series was a totally different feel and pace from the last two but, also fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed Show's POV and seeing Isaac and Lilli's through his lens.

I thought like the residents of Signal Bend, the more subdued tone of this book was needed to regroup, process and heal. Yet, it was still heart wrenching at times, as Show came to grips with the loss of his Daisy.

She was no Lilli...who is going to be one tough to beat heroine.

But...Show more than made up for where Shannon was lacking and this was another great addition to the series.

There wasn't a lot of angst and drama. Into the Storm was more about Signal Bend picking up the pieces of the Ellis fallout. Regrowing, rebuilding, starting over. And the same for Show. Show suffered a tremendous loss during the fallout.

This. This was love. This was forever. It hadn't been too late.


Show, VP of the Night Horde, is a man that lost everything. He now knows only despair, regret and guilt. Haunted and alone.

Shannon, the new manager of the Signal Bend's B&B, signifies the rise of the town. A beautiful woman seemingly perfect and cool but all is an elaborate facade carefully structured to keep everyone from getting too close. To her heart. Her secrets. Her demons and fears.

When I started reading the Signal Bend Series I knew right from the beginning that these books had a different feel to them. A different vibe than other MC book’s I have read. This still holds true.

Into the Storm is the story of Robert “Showdown” Ryan. We really got to know Show in book 2, Behold the Stars. Show’s life is empty. He has experienced loss like no other man should. Feeling this tremendous loss and carrying around guilt, Show lives a hollow life. That is until Shannon cross
"Into the Storm" is book #3 of the Signal Bend series. This installment is Robert "Showdown" Ryan's book, or better known as Show. He is the Vice President of the Night Horde MC, and this is a man who is a tortured one. In book two, Show was dealt some major heartache and trauma. When I say major, I mean far more than anyone should ever have to deal with in their lifetime. Seeing him be dealt so much emotional pain, I was looking forward to his book and him getting a HEA that he deserved. Instea ...more

This is the third book in this series and it took a timeout on action and corruption. It was a breather...a time to regroup and develop new ways and practices for Signal Bend.

With the resurgence of the town and the building of the B&B by Lilli as the backdrop; we focus on Showdown, Issac's VP in the club. He is broken, hollowed out and just functioning...barely...with good reason...

Thank goodness Susan Fanetti decided to take pity on her readers because I was an emotional wreck after Behold the Stars. This book might be more aptly named, "After the Storm," as it shows the town of Signal Bend enjoying a time of peace and revitalization after nearing destruction. Nobody deserves a happy ending more than Showdown Ryan.

This was much, much easier to swallow than book two, thank God! Even though Show has lost so much and is in a really bad spot mentally, this was definitely a book of healing, both for Show and for the town and the Horde. And if there was ever a man that needed healing, it would be Showdown!

I've loved Show from the beginning, when he proved to be the voice of reason for Isaac the hotheaded president of the MC.

Into The Storm didn't disappoint. I couldn't wait to read Robert Showdown's story because he'd experienced the most heartbreaking and horrific loss that had left him a broken man. I needed to know who was going to help him break him out of that shell of man he'd become. Shannon was an awesome character. Very independent and strong woman who took charge and acted on her crush on Show. It wasn't easy. Their back and forth banter and their slowly progress towards something more was wonderfully done ...more

I’ll keep it brief since there’s already loads of reviews.

Show is fabulous.
But honestly I wasn’t keen on Shannon. She knew about his past yet pushed for details while giving nothing of herself away. And then when it all came about OTT.

I wanted someone stronger for Show. Someone who deserved him.
But instead he got Shannon.

I had intended to finish the series but now I’m just not sure...

“You look at me like you see something.” He drew his thumbs over her cheekbones and felt the swell as she smiled.

“I do.”

“No. Nothing to see.”

She blinked and her eyes cleared and opened fully. “That’s not true, Show. I see kindness. Strength. And sorrow.” One hand slid from his neck, and she put her fingers over his mouth and through his beard. “When I look at you, I can feel you. I don’t know why.”

Is impossible for me not to like this book because I know Show intimately since Book 1 and after what happened to him in Book 2, this man desperately in need of his own HEA. For me, as long as the heroine is passably okay, I will definitely enjoy it. Surprisingly, Shannon turned out as quite a catch and I warm up to her even quicker compare to Lilli.

Even with Signal Bend currently experiencing some downtime with some peace and quiet, I never felt bore at all. In fact, I felt invested on

He has managed to roam the earth for two years drinking, sleeping, and working his days away. He is an empty shell of a man.

Into the Storm was the third book in Susan Fanetti’s Signal Bend series. It picked up a year from the last book, Behold the Stars, and elaborated on the aftermath. Those previous years were dark, troubling and disturbing.

I am so in love with this series! I want to jump into the pages and take up residence in Signal Bend. While it was Isaac and Lilli who got me hooked, I have to say that "Show" might possibly own a piece of my heart forever.

This is the continuation almost ten moths after Behold the Stars . Showdown has been living, or barely living, from the bottom of a bottle. He stays at the clubhouse, because he can't bare even think about his home after what happened to his family. Shannon has gotten into a grove of living in Signal Bend and running the B&B for Lilli and Isaac. She's got a huge crush on Showdown, and is finally seeing little inklings that he may be receptive to the vibes she's putting out.
