Want, need, pain, and joy were emotions Shade had never known existed before Lily. He knew the first time he saw her face that she was going to change his life forever. The thing he hadn’t expected was how hard it would be to hide who and what he was from her. Each step he took out of the shadows revealed more of himself, until only one secret remained. Shade arrogantly be ...more

Omfgkkdkemfjeodm!!! I'm about to effing die!
Holly shades! I totally did not expect to get another SHADE book!!!


Okay.. I'm pissed! But let me start this by saying- Shade and Lily's love story is EPIC!. I have no other word to describe it. Basically in this book is a re-run (to put it in words) of the previous Last Rider Series but in SHADE's perspective. I'm not a fan of re-reading events from different pov's but I just couldn't skip this one and glad I didn't! Gotta say, SHADE put all

Jamie Begley's Shade (Last Riders 06); 3 By Comparison Stars


In matters of the heart, Shade out-thought, out-plotted, and out-pursued the other Last Riders. He didn't fall in love easily, but when he did, Lily owned him heart and soul. Though surrounded by a bevy of readily available & accommodating women, none could satisfy his hunger for Lily, so he pursued her with a single-minded determination that bordered on obsession. Once she was his, he an

You know those stories you wanted to love, couldn’t wait to read? Well, this is that story for me.

I have been a fan of The Last Riders Series since I first met Beth and Rizer. Since then I have followed the series anxiously awaiting each book. However, one story in particular I was dying to read: Lily and Shade. When I finally got to read their story I was disappointed that we didn’t get more of Shade’s POV. So when I heard about this book I was dying to jump in.

I HATE SHADE - degenerative arsehole who screws anything in a skirt for years while stalking the ever stupid Lily!

Embarrassed by Lily - weak pathetic twat who hangs out with all the women her husband screwed while she was in the picture.

Oh and this is Shade "missing" Lily/Pining for her:

"Shade nudged his cock slowly into her greedy cunt, feeling her silky flesh glide over his hard dick. He loved the feeling of first entering a tight pussy, gradually loosening it until they could take the force o

I am crying... I just finished this book and I am crying the ending was beautifully done, think of the movie The Notebook that's how beautiful it was, I'm not sure I liked it though I don't want to be crying when I finish a book. This book was spectacular it starts at the very beginning and goes to the very last moment, it tells us about Shade and Lily from the first sight and it shows us those things that we never got to see in all the other books not just between Shade and Lily but betw

Warning: This book contains scenes of ménage, bondage and very hot and steamy if any of this are not your thing then pick up this book at your own risk!

That being said...this boookkkkkk was sooooooooo loooooonnnnngggg...

It has 99 chapters (including the epilogs) and around 1000 pages. I think it's probably the longest romance book I have ever read.


But it was totally worth it because I love the Last Rider boys and, because I'm such a biker bitch, I just can't get enough of them. So of co

If you didn't already love will truly fall for him HARD after reading SHADE!

There is a side of him that we never got to see, and I don't just mean the crazy sex God... cause some of those scenes are CRAZYYYYYYY (OMG), but he is just a great guy who watches out for the members (just wanting them to be happy), and he is quite sneaky about it...Gotta love his manipulative ways.

Oh my gosh! I swear if shade cheat's I will cry.
And if it's with bliss, I might have to slap a bitch. Not that I hate her but who forms friendships with the men's women but if given a chance would still have sex with their men. She's sly and I don't like that. Her and her oasis vagina can bugger off

I really liked reading but I confess that I still hate the bitches (whores) at the Club.
They are disgusting! And to me they're still not moving from mere holes for men to satisfy their needs.
I loved Shade and his behavior after his involvement with Lily was wonderful.
He continues to be my favorite character.
The writer surprised me and I'm going to continue reading this author.
And to top it off I keep hating Bliss. Just saying...

I just want to clarify before I begin telling you my thoughts on this book by stating that anything I say past this statement will never do this book justice, I truly believe there aren't any words in any language to accurately state how magnificent this book was.

In my review for Shade’s Fall, I mentioned that Shade and Lily’s story was not the epic love story I thought it was going to be and after reading Shade, I still feel the same way. I wanted to love this story but Good Golly Miss Molly, I could not. Her Mary-Sue and his Marty Stus character just got on my nerves. The book was too darn long and mostly a re-hash of books 1-5 from Shade’s POV. Cutesy epilogues but not worth reading a long drawn out story to get to it. Meh and double Meh! I’m giving i ...more
Bumped a star.

Shade is a fascinating and heartbreaking peek into the mind of a besotted psychopath, and in my re-read I fell for his and Lily's romance even more than the first time as that was what drew me back.

Under most circumstances I would hate this book with a millions negative stars, but Begley does that rare thing an author can do: either redeem a horrible character or unveil the layers that show why his actions are comprehensible. Shade is what most would consider is a horrible p

In the end it was perfect.

I'm changing my rating for this book from 4 stars to 5 and I'm going to explain why but I'm leaving my original review since, well it doesn't seem right to change it, initially I was disappointed that it was so similar to all the previous ones, Shades POV in most cases didn't seem to add a great deal but that's where I was wrong Shades POV added a great deal to it which if I'm being totally honest I didn't fully appreciate till I'd finished the book.

The story line was nothing short of perfection, I belly laughed so many times , but oh my god , I cried so hard , I could not get it out of my head for a long time . If you don't do anything else order this series you will not be disappointed. Well done Jamie BRILLIANTLY WROTE .

The sixth book in The Last Riders series covers the previous five books and then gives more. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this one, I had the notion that a rehash of what's gone before would not be worth the read. I've read all the previous books, some I've loved others not quite so much. The same could be said for the characters. But what I hadn't bargained for was how very quickly I became engrossed, yes there are lots from the previous stories, but there are plent

Love it! I seriously love this book. It is Shade POV during the entire series, and how he fell in love with Lily. So beautiful and you just feel this big love.

I cried like a baby last few lines of reading...
"Where you go, I will go,” Shade said, holding his wife closer. “I love you, Lily. Always.”

I think that this book can be read as a standalone. But certainly, the previous reading can be a better vision of the other characters. But this book takes beautifully together previous books.

This book was intense. You know how you hate to read the same book form a different POV sometimes? Maybe because you feel like it’s exactly the same book or maybe because you don’t like the characters as much, or you feel like the hero/heroine is annoying you.  Well, this is nothing like that.
Jamie Begley has given us Shade’s POV. It recounts his love for Lily from the moment he meets her and recognizes that she is the only person who has made him feel something more than loyalty.

Shit. I can't even.

This book gave me such a big bad hangover. The epilogue. CHILLS. It just gave me goosebumps because it was just so. damn. good.

Ugh. I still can't even.. after a month of reading it.. that epilogue stuck in my head.

The story was good. I LOVE the characters. Bah. One of my favorites.

The epilogue though.. makes everything bittersweet because it's one hell of an ending.. TO THE WHOLE SERIES. So I didn't understand that. Kind of gives away everything when the series isn't done yet.

I liked getting Shade's POV thru the previous stories that led up to his book but I wasn't wowed. Some of the scenes that should have been drawn out, weren't and the scenes that drug out, shouldn't have. *shrugs shoulders*

I will say that I did shed tears in the last epilogue(there are three of em). So I need to read something smutty to get my mind off of it.

I read this book straight after Shade’s Fall. It’s a retelling of Shade & Lily’s book but from his POV. I am so glad I did. It’s so much more than that. We get an insight into Shade’s complex character but also so much more of the others through his observations. It’s packed with emotion & I cried on & off for most of the story. Absolutely loved it. ...more

Those epilogues though...they killed me, I'm a mess. I love Shade and Lily, they are my favourite couple and even though this one had a lot of scenes from other books it was well worth the read. Probably my favourite in the series so far.

This wasn't a 5 star read as much as it was a 5 hankies read. Jamie Begley, how could you?

The latest in the Last Riders series will be enjoyed the most by die-hard fans. 80% of it is simply condensing the previous books from Shade's POV. While it was interesting to get inside Shade's enigmatic mind, I have to be honest that re-reading entire passages taken word by word from previous books kind of tried my patience. I wanted to get to the good part!

Annoyed! I love all of Jamies' books. BUT I hate a POV book. That's what this is, but the blurb does not tell us that. I would not have even bothered.
As far as I'm concerned, if the author did their job right to begin with, I don't need a POV book. I already understood the characters the first time around.
If I wanted to read the same story again, I would have just re-read "Shade's Fall".
The only purpose a POV book serves is to make the author more money.

After all the build up, I could not wait to get my hands on Shade. After reading Shades Fall and experiencing Shade and Lily's intense, loving relationship, I am now wondering if Shade was in love with the idea of Lily. I never had that feeling in Shades Fall; however, with the book #6, Shade exposing his inner thoughts, feelings and actions, the only noticeable change in his behaviour is his commitment to refrain from sleeping with other women. Likewise, he is still around to watch his past sex ...more

Holy crap, that ending *phew*. I really enjoyed it, as much as I enjoyed the previous books in the series. This book is much longer and it takes you back to events that took place in previous books. We solely get Shade's POV, so even though I knew what was going to happen for most of the story, it somehow sounded different seeing it from inside Shade's head. I can also see why some people might find it too repetitive. And Shade is not an easy character to love. However, despite his flaws and alt ...more
