First off, I want to say that The Steele Security series has been one of my all time favorite series. Whenever anyone asks me for a book recommendation this is the series that always pops first in my mind, ALWAYS!! I have both been impatiently waiting and dreading this book. Impatiently waiting I know you get, but why did I dread it? Well, because it is the last book in this series and I wasn't and if I'm truthful am still not ready for it to end. I have told Ms. Justice explicitly that this ser ...more

I really didn't think that this series could get any better but the author proved me very wrong. I loved every book but this one is definitely my favorite of the series. A very suspenseful, exciting and sexy story. I experienced so many emotions while read....I laughed, I cried, I screamed and swore. I was so sad when I got to the end because I didn't want it to be over. Loved getting Shadow and Elle's story from beginning to end.

I have been waiting for this book since we were first introduced to Steele Security wondering what the illusive Shadow was like and A.D. Justice did not disappoint.

This was the best in the series. Shadow was always quiet and unassuming. He stayed in the shadows while his brothers lived life to the fullest and found their soul mates. His story was fast past and heart stopping at times. You cannot put this book down, it is amazing. Elle and Devon have known each other their whole lives and there was always a spark. Age was always a factor for him. They finally give in and let the sparks fly. Life gets in the way and you need to buckle and enjoy their ride. I ...more

Oh My! As I stated, I received an advanced reader copy of this book, but had not read any of the previous stories in the series. Not needed, but boy do I want to, if they were anything like this one! I truly loved Elle and Devon's story, although there were times I wanted to shake Elle and say "Really, girl! Open your eyes and figure it out!"This author writes in such a way that you experience the character's journey with them - you get so in

I loved this book. I think Shadow's has to be my favorite so far. I know this says it can be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend that you read the previous 4 to actually understand all they players. I am now really invested in the story and really, really hope that Silas's story will be next in line. If you want a great hawt guy series this is a great place to look. The men of Steele Security deliver th goods.

I cannot put into words how amazing Wicked Shadows was, not only is it an epic romance but it's also an action packed adventure. I was hooked from page one, right up until the last page.
I laughed, I bawled, I cussed AD Justice, I smiled; you name the emotion it will be felt reading this book.
Shadow aka Devon has always been a mystery throughout the series and his story is full of adventure and romance; who knew Mr Secretive was ohh so, wow

I adore Steele Security so very much and I have eagerly awaited Devon’s story. Whenever reading a Steele Security story, it is wicked and hot, passionate and suspenseful.
This is Devon and Elle's love story. When the story starts, we get a look at how their story starts which is Elle fell in love with Devon at age 7 yrs old. Devon is friend’s with Elle’s brother. He was her first hero, now he's the only man she's ever wanted. Devon grows up to work special ops and is a deep cover CIA agent worki

"I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own."

This is the first book by AD Justice that I have read, however I have already uploaded the entire Steele Security series, so I have plans to read many more. Even with the small exposure to the rest of the security firm, I know I want more. Wicked Shadows was a fun read. It was sexy, suspenseful, well-paced, and well-written.

This is Devon and Elle's love story. Elle has been in love with her older brother's

Ok so this is my favorite and also my least favorite in the Steele Security Series. It's my least favorite because it's the last and I don't want this series to end!!!! And it's my favorite because A.D. has saved the best for last and I didn’t think I would say that!! I thought Reaper’s book would be my favorite but Shadow’s book has stolen my heart!!! Although at some points in this book I thought about hunting A.D. down to beat her down for breaking my heart and having me screaming NO!!!!! I l ...more

#WickedShadows-I totally enjoyed this story. I first started this series with Wicked Games, Brianna and Noah's story and that story was amazing, so I knew that Ms. Justice does not disappoint her readers. This was the fabulous story of Devon "Shadow" Kane and his best friend's sister,Elle Moore. She became Elle Sinclair, her stage name, when she began modeling and acting but her heart has always belonged to Devon, since the young age of seven. Devon and

I LOVE my Steele Security men! All of the books in this series are AMAZING! A.D. Justice is such a phenomenal writer. Her books always flow well, and the stories are always so good. I never feel cheated at the end of her books.

Another great addition to the Steele Security series. Devon has known Elle since she was a little girl. Elle has always seen Devon as her protector/prince. Over her adult years while she was modeling and in the limelight, Devon assumed the moniker of Shadow and lived in the darkness. When they started a relationship, Elle had to be kept in the dark about what Devon did for a living. When she goes missing , Elle's family calls Devon for his expertise. Can Shadow save her? Can he save himself?

I wish this wasn't the last book in the Steele Security series. This is Shadow's story. And what a story!! I loved it! Couldn't put it down until I was done. Have your tissues handy!
Elle has a crush on her older brother's best friend, Devon. Devon always liked little Elle, until she grew into a woman. Their chemistry is off the charts hot.
Wicked Shadows is full of suspense, laughter, and love.
The writing is fantastic and it's told in multiple POV'S. It can be read as a standalone, but I HIGHLY

Absolutely love this series, every book gets better and better. I couldn't wait to read Shadow's story and it was everything I thought it would be. My emotions were all over the place, you can't help to get sucked in to the story and the characters. Shadow & Elle's love is undeniable and you can feel how much they love each other as you read their story. Another amazing story that I will never forget.

This series had me hooked from the beginning. So many twists and turns. Each character has his own book but each book concentrates more on one character at a time. This is Shadows book, highly anticipated. Without giving spoilers away. Wow ..what a journey it takes. Keeps you on the edge of your seat at times. If you loved the earlier books you won't want to miss this one.

This book was stunningly written with just the right amount of passion and intrigue that keeps you on your toes and begging for more!
Shadow for me, was always a tortured soul. Enter Elle, who has always been in his life.. but is the game changer. I love these two together and I love having the other players i

Wicked Shadows is an Amazing end to a phenomenal series! The Steele Security series is one of my top favorites, but Shadow's book! So so good! He is definitely my new favorite! Who would have guessed he was hiding such a great story throughout the first four books?

Keeping with the flow of the series A.D. Justice delivers a romantic suspense that will keep you up all night turning pages, unable to put the book down! I can't even express how I felt reading this book, there are twists I never in a

I definitely need a sixth star on this book! Omg! The non stop action was riveting. Shadow has always been a favorite of mine from the series, but he has just took front row property. Elle was a perfect match for him which made the relationship and the passion chart topping. This book may be part of a series, but could be a standalone, although I do recommend reading them in order so you can fall in love and appreciate the characters as they were intended. My emotions were all over the place, an ...more

Great read!. I stayed up til 3 am. until I finished the book. Devon and Elle had great chemistry if somewhat on again then gone relationship due to the fact that he works for CIA and undercover while Elle is in movies. So actresses start getting kidnapped for trafficking and Devon goes undercover to save Elle. Loved this book so much went and got the other books from this author. Definitely would recommend this.

Wow. What an amazing story. Loved all the twists and turns in the book. Shadow is one complicated alpha male. Elle is one strong willed woman. They have one long strong complicated connection. Could not put this book down. The whole Steele security family is one loving loyal bunch. They would do anything for each other. A must read. Amazing love story.

Oh how I've missed my Steele Security men!! No worries, they are still super hot, super alpha and Bad $$$!!!

Elle's brother Jeff was best friends with Devon growing up. Elle, as a child, was always spying on the two because she liked Devon a lot. They tried the dating thing and with what his job entailed being in the CIA he couldn't let her into his life. But, now he works for Steele Security....will that make a difference?

Elle is now a superstar and has disappeared and Jeff has enlisted Devon's,

So a good book is one that keeps me wanting more. One where I can become invested. I became invested with these characters in the first book of the series. Getting to know some of the characters even further in each additional book has been a blessing. Getting to Shadow and his story was great.
Elle is so cute from the first time we see her playing spy. Many things hide in the shadows and most of them are not nice. This story kept me wanting more! #WickedShadows

This was given as an arc. I was so glad to see Shadow's book. This series is so good!! You can read stand alone but why when you get to know them all. This book definitely kept me on my toes. One hell of a ride. Another hot security guy with lots of secrets. Devon and Elle are so great, you really need to grab this and get to know them, you won't be sorry.
