I was SO excited to start on a new series by Shannon McKenna. I’ve been a HUGE fan of hers for a VERY long time. Right Through Me was a really good read for me, I definitely had a hard time putting this book down.
This book was filled with amazing paranor ...more
Genetically modified humans with special abilities. Very cool.
With a somewhat scientific twist to it. Even better.
With a kickarse heroine and an alpha male Hero to die for. Sign me up.
Unfortunately the book frustrated me to no end. There is good frustration when it comes to books but there is frustration that drives you up the wall and where you want to pull your hair out because the characters are just irritating as hell.
I fell into the latter category. This book ...more

I loved some of this author’s early books. But I have not liked her recent books - too much psi-drugs. I decided not to read any more in the McClouds & Friends Series if she continued using psi-drugs. I was pleased to see this book was the first in a new series (The Obsidian Files). But again it was like the psi-drug books. Humans were experimented upon and given enhanced physical powers and mental abilities. Some have robotic implants.
If you're a fan of Shannon McKenna's McCloud and Friends series, you will love this book too.
All the classic elements of a Shannon McKenna keeper are here: intense but gentle-with-heroine hero, vulnerable yet strong heroine, super bad villains who add to the tension. Of course, the love scenes are sooooo steamy, and not repetitive from her past stories either, actually, they feel even more intense with the hero's sup
Noah Gallagher is the head of a biotech firm and a super-soldier. The Obsidian Group had plucked him and other teenagers from the street and experimented on them. Obsidian experimented on them and enhanced them, giving them different unique abilities. After leading the rebellion against Obsidian Noah managed to escape with many others from the super-soldier program, including his sister.

To be honest, I always have a hard time with the first in a series when there's massive world-building. It didn't help that I was simply dropped into a world of modified supersoldiers and their supersonic skills with not one word of explanation.

As I previously stated I'm a huge fan of Shannon McKenna. I've reread her McCloud series atleast five times. I worship at her alter as a writer of thriller romances and to this day I struggle to find another author of the same genre I can enjoy half as much. Which is why it pains me to write this review.
What a mess!!! I'm going to have to brag a moment to get my point across. I read a lot and I read a pretty wide vari ...more
I first fell in love with Shannon McKenna with her McClouds & Friends; that very series is THE reason why I hate the library. I read the books, I loved the books...
And I had to give them back.
Oh, the horror.
I just love her brand of contemporary meets suspense meets a little out-worldly. It works, and it's believable (I do love me a well written werewolf though so...). Needless to say, I was pretty excited about this new series.
Like with those McClouds, Ms. McKenna's ability to write ...more
As always Shannon McKenna paints the most amazing vibrant picture with her words. I can truly see what she explains from No ...more
She always has the BEST covers as well!!
Besides the uniqueness of the plot it is also non-stop excitement, captivating and as always hot as hell!! It is so easy to get lost in the excitement and danger along with each character. Shannon has this amazing ability to develop new and extraordinary characters that you want to know and get lost in. This is what sets her apart from the rest...she is in a class all ...more
Not so long ago I won an e-book copy of this book in a giveaway. I guess I would have never picked something like this otherwise. I’m not a big fan of books with cyborgs, because they tend to be a bunch of nonsense sex and little story. Luckily, this one is the exception. Due to life, it has taken me ages to finish it; but it’s a really nice book. Much better than expected.
We met Noah, an enhanced soldier that several years ago escaped fro ...more
This is a very technically written book with AVP's, and in-head-scrolling data files, deep dives, and imbeds (whatever those are). And it was very hard to empathize with Noah and the other Midland mods, because the terminology was unlike anything I've read before. I did grasp the basics and could follow the suspenseful plot, but I feel exhausted here at the end. I had to put it down repeatedly just to take a break. Caro (Caroline) was a sweet, caring, givin ...more

Thus, because of all the techno-talks, jargons, abbreviations and acronyms (it seemed a bit presumptuous to expect a reader to grasp what's going on at the outset), I really struggled with the first quarter of the book and even considered throwing the to ...more

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
I started writing my first romance novel in secret. I was working a temp job in an insurance office in Manhattan at the time, and the office manager had made it clear that even if there was nothing to do, I still had to look busy-- never one of my big talents. I felt bad about the waste ...more
