Jordan
This story isn’t about love, like, lust, or a happily ever after. This story, my story, is about struggle, pain and suffering. Fighting to stay afloat while being pulled under by what feels like the murky and powerful undertow of the ocean. Fighting for strength I so desperately need when all I am feeling is desolate and weak. I’m a girl who exudes hatred when a norm

If you have read any of Tesha's previous work, please be prepared for her to take you on a totally different ride with this book. As the blurb states, this book is not about HEA's. It's not roses, unicorns, butterflies and rainbows. It's life of one woman who at one point had at all; then one harrowing night changes her entire world and being.

My opinions may be slightly biased because I did edit this book, and as an editor, I wouldn't allow my authors to put out a shit book. But I also thoroughl

Bring your tissues, when you start this book, because it is utterly and beautifully gut-wrenching. By the end, I was emotionally wrung out. It contains some very sensitive subject matter that may be difficult for some to read. This story was darkly suspenseful and kept me turning the pages at a furious rate to see what would happen next. Be prepared to stay up all night to finish this one. This is my first T.R. Cupak book, but it won't be my last.

Arc provided by author for honest review. When this author approached me to read her book. I was very intrigued when she sent me the blurb. Right away I wanted to jump right into this book. And omg from the beginning to end all I could saying was omg wow. Omg did that really happen and omg please no. I was transported in this book that's what this author does. She captures your attention and doesn't waver. This author is truly talented. Everyone I know needs to read Jordan's shadow.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars

WOW! There really aren’t the right words to do this novel justice. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I promise it won’t be the last. The way this story was told was powerful, heart-warming and heart-wrenching. There were a few moments of pure joy and then a few of pure sobbing.

I wish I could have finished it all in one sitting because it was that good, but I’m glad I dragged it out a little just because I was able to really delve deeper into the story. I

I don't even know where to begin....

I am seriously at a loss for words right now. This book has so many different emotions running through me, I am not sure how to explain it. I thought the last book by this author broke me but this book takes a piece of your soul as you read it. It is the most beautifully tragic book I have ever had the pleasure of reading and I can not recommend this book enough. So do yourself a favor, grab some wine, chocolate, a box (or two) of tissues , a comforting blanke

This book truly gutted me and gave me the biggest book hangover!. I do have to warn you, this book contains instances of rape and depression. If these are triggers or hard no’s for you, then this story is NOT for you. For everyone else I definitely recommend picking this bad boy up. Jordan is living with her past. Hunter wants to help her avenge her past. Together they are all sorts of messed-up, but together they work. Along with their friend Monte, they work to create a future for themselves b ...more

WOW! Just WOW!!
So, even though it says there isn't going to be a happily ever after, I am always optimistic that there will be.
This time I should have believed the blurb, there isn't a happily ever after but I can say that I am happy with the outcome of the ending of this book.
I could not put this book down but at the same time, with every page that I turned, my heart broke and swelled all at once. This is not a story for the faint of heart, if you are squeamish or have triggers of any kind t

Wow. I am utterly speechless, floored, pick-my-jaw-off-the-floor-I-have-no-words just...WOW!

T.R. Cupak you went above and beyond. Your writing was superb, dark, gut-wrenching and mind-blowing. Jordan & Hunter; I swear those two have stolen a piece of my heart, ripped it open, and now it’s slowly healing back to one. I went in without reading the blurb and was not expecting my mind to be blown and my heart ripped in two. This is by far your best book yet and I cross my fingers we get a Monte

You breathe I breathe.. this sentence broke me I felt jordans misery shame and love and I felt Hunter persistence protectiveness and love. This book brought tears to my eyes because the author words fell hard and fast on me I got a vivid picture of the events I felt them hurt I felt their love and I felt their hate I couldn't put it I wanted to see if she can do it or is she stronger than them but she did it and then life throws a wrench and he is back for a second and by then I was cursing up a ...more

Oh my freaking goodness!!! I haven't given a 5 star rating for a while. But this book is worth 10 stars. Ms Cupak you rocked with this story and not because of the bad things that happened to Jordan but because you brought such an awesome character like Hunter in her life. Not to mention Monte, he was just as awesome. Cannot wait to read more of your books. The ending was not what I thought it would be. This was a very very heartbreaking story.
WELL DONE

Okay, wait. What even just happened?! For a second, I thought he was dreaming and couldn't believe it. I had to reread the last couple chapters a couple times for it to sink in. Wow.
I'm a sucker for dark romance- I've been excited for this book since I read the prologue and I think first chapter earlier last year. I've been dying to get my hands on it since. If you're familiar with the Alexa series, then you already know just how heartbreaking T.R.'s writing can be. That shows in this one, but a

What a very tragic, heartbreaking yet beautiful story. The story of Jordan and Hunter was truly a unique and fantastic story, I enjoyed every minute and loved the journey. Very suspenseful and moments when you hold your breathe not knowing what’s coming next. T.R.’s writing is so unbelievably amazing, I could feel every emotion these characters were giving me. Truly a story that a lot of people can relate, if not directly then maybe someone they know. I could tell in T.R.’s writing she put her h ...more

HOLY F**K! This book destroyed me! I couldn't stop reading even tho with every turn of the page my heart broke a little more. The raw emotions put in to this book will have you balling by the end and if not then you're heartless with no soul!
I want a love like Jordan and The Shadow! the line that stands out for me the most is "You breathe, I breathe." T.R. Cupak has a way with words that I only wish to ever have! I waited a year for this book and damn it I was not disappointed! You will fall in

This book is not for the faint of heart. Its themes and action may be triggers for some.

It is raw and gritty, and it left me a sobbing mess.

It hooked me from the beginning, I had to keep reading to see what happened next. This was due to the wonderful characters, Jordan and Hunter. They are broken, but together they are a perfect couple. They are so well rounded, and described, you can almost picture them in your mind.

The plot moves swiftly from scene to scene, and each scene is germane to the u

Forever After, a love that can't be broken
I'm not sure where to start here, I'm not sure there are words for how I feel about Jordan's Shadow. I give it 5 stars because I loved it but I don't know how to verbalize that love. This story is so beautifully written and so full of emotion and passion you will be left drained and energized.

You will be overcome with the connection between Jordan and Hunter from the moment you see them together. Their relationship isn't "normal" nor is it expected. So

"No one in my life can tell me what to do, but Jordan, she can."

Having been a fan of Cupak's previous books, I was so excited to dive into Jordan's Shadow. Though I'm not a huge fan of dark romance, I couldn't wait to see what this story was going to be all about. I went into this book excited, but braced for impact, what I didn't expect was for my heart and soul to be crushed. This book is not for the faint of heart but I found myself not being able to stop turning the pages.

Fantastic

I love stories with alternative surprising HEA's! I read this book in less than 8 hours as Jordan and Hunter's story grabbed me and wouldn't let go! In the beginning I so hated Hunter and loved how strong Jordan was. By the end I liked Hunter more. His mental illness was more difficult to understand than her's. This is a definite just read!

I can’t stop thinking about this book. It totally sucked me in from the beginning. I’m so blown away by Jordan’s Shadow that my heart hurts; it hit every emotion.

This is so different for TR Cupak. She has poured her heart and soul into this book. It will have your adrenaline pumping. There will be times you want to scream. This story left me completely shattered and that doesn’t happen often.

Jordan and the Shadow (aka Hunter) have a very unconventional relationship, but it worked for them. Love

This was my response after finishing Jordan's Shadow!

"You are evil woman just evil. Yes, I just finished Jordan's Shadow. The ending gutted me. I could not put it down and finished it in one sitting."

It is a heartbreaking story. It is a story of survival with everything that Jordan has been through. She is strong willed, caring and determined. Hunter is the light in her darkness. Hunter is strong, loving and protective. The ending through me for a loop. I was sobbing mess but it was perfect endi

T. R. Cupak was born and raised in the California Bay Area. She now lives in a quiet town south of where she grew up with her husband and their Shih Tzu Harley. She is obsessed with cars, especially fast ones, and enjoys her music louder than anyone should. When she's not at work or busy writing, you can find her curled up, reading and enjoying a fabulous glass of wine or a good scotch.
