It's just tiring when it goes on and on. There is very little going on that doesn't include having sex, thinking about sex, or planning sex. Frankly, I'm bored to tears with it all.

Amy: I'm with you there. I remember when characters got to know each other before jumping in bed. Then it was LOVE scenes, not sex scenes and there is a difference. And they didn't take up half the book.

These references will affect your understanding of events or references made in this 3rd book. Additionally, the family dynamics and interactions are an integral part of each book and continues to build. Therefore, in my opinion, this book should not be read as a stand-alone.

Giovanni is living the high life, fast cars and woman but little does everyone know that he is just trying to deflect eyes from the family business of Shadow Riding. Many would love to be in Giovanni’s shoes, but in Giovanni’s case, he hates the role he must personify. When he finally meets his perfect match, Sasha, all she sees is the playboy and not the man beneath. Its his job to convince her that she is his forever.

Sasha is from a ranch in Wyoming, coming to the city after her parents are ki

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

SHADOW KEEPER is an extreme disappointment after I enjoyed the previous books in the Shadow series. I'll admit that I found the other heroes in the Shadow series to be slightly over the top. But in an enjoyable way! Unfortunately, in SHADOW KEEPER, Giovanni was a very problematic character for me.

My biggest annoyance happened in the first few pages of the book - so you can check it out in the excerpt link above. The short version is: when Giovanni and

I'm reading these books completely out of order but that is ok because I feel like you can with this series. I've read book 5, then 1 and now 3. I've really enjoyed all three couples. I will say this couple in book 3 seem a bit more turbulent to me. There is a lot going on but it also really keeps your attention. I'm crazy about how these guys are completely 100% into their women. That's the biggest draw for me in a book. This heroine was also one I like. She stood up for herself. I wish there w ...more
I enjoyed it. It doesn't interest me like the Dark series, but it keeps me listening.

The "gangster" Ferraro family is back. This time Giovanni takes the lead when he falls for the waitress, Sasha, who is unknowingly a potential Shadow Rider. Sasha is a pretty likable heroine. She is tough and no-nonsense, but not an ass-kicker.

Giovanni was shot in the last book and currently has metal in his leg, preventing him from riding the shadows. Most of the drama centers around someone stalking the hero
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Giovanni Ferraro is the star of Shadow Keeper and is a lethal combination of power, danger and sensuality. Giovanni is playing the playboy role since he’s been sidelined with injuries and is unable to ride the shadows. Doing his part for family he’s hanging out at their night club and when he spots a certain waitress, his heart unlocks by the right woman for him. Sasha Provis needs the work and waitressing on the top tier with the high rollers can give her the tips to help take care of her broth

Outstanding! Shadow Keeper is the third book in the Shadow Rider series and with each successive book the Ferraro story just gets better, more exciting, and action-packed. This is the story of Giovanni Ferraro and Sasha Provis. Sasha has moved from her family ranch in Wyoming to Chicago in order to find the best care for a loved one. Giovanni and Sasha paths cross, of all places, in one of the Ferraro’s nightclub where she is working as a waitress trying to support her brother, Sandlin, who is i ...more
I am a huge fan of the Shadow Rider’s series! There is something about the Ferraro family that I just love. Probably that they are misunderstood anti-heroes of sorts. I just love how the family deeply cares about each other and that they use their supernatural powers to bring a vigilante justice to those that have escaped consequences for their crimes. In Shadow Keeper, Giovanni Ferraro finds himself in a position where he needs to be the one in the limelight in order to keep the attention off o ...more

Oooh lawd. Christine Feehan has me over here fantasizing about shadows! Did that one just move? The Shadow series and the uber yummy Ferraro Brothers, will have you looking a little harder the next time you see a shadow move across your field of vision. Shadow Keeper is the third installment of the Shadow series, and I would encourage you to read them in order. While each story has its own arc, it will benefit you to have some of the back story from earlier books. Plus, the whole series has been

Can’t get enough of the Ferraro’s….

I can’t! The Ferraro siblings and their stories are my new addiction and I don’t want a cure… There are elements that tie these stories together - honor, strength, love (romantic, family, friends) – all the things that make life good. Really good. Yet each romance is unique and offers something new with each outing. Giovanni and Sasha may have had a bumpy first impression but I starting falling for them right away… Well, honestly, Giovanni had a head start…

Quickie Review:

Christine Feehan continues her winning streak with Shadow Keeper. I think both Giovanni and Sasha are my favorite characters of the Shadow series so far. I adored them as a couple and as individuals--once we got to really know them, that is. Because our hero definitely had some moments at the beginning of the novel where you could see how the tension of having to live his public persona vs being his true self wore on Giovanni. But I loved the way Sasha took him to task for his act

This is the third book in the Shadow Riders series, with Giovanni Ferraro and Sasha Provis, as the main characters. A twisted plot line keeps this an exciting story. The author produces more character building of the Ferraro family during their interactions throughout the book.

Quotes I liked from this book: “Sasha Provis is a shadow rider. At least, she’s capable of being one,” Giovanni announced to his family. “She’s definitely mine. I was attracted to her before our shadows ever connected. In

I like this new series by Feehan but this one was a little hard to get through. It took me time to really get into the story. In fact, I really didn't start enjoying it until about 75%. It just felt slow at times. And as always, the love scenes with Feehan were long and I basically just skimmed them.

This was a case of total insta-luv. I honestly didn't care for the hero or the heroine. He acted like an idiot (see my updates) and she made a boneheaded decision too. Plus she was super forward and

Shadow Keeper by Christine Feehan is the 3rd book in her fantastic Shadow series. I love this series, as the premise though paranormal, it is different and fantastic. Refresher: Shadow riders have the ability to blend themselves to the shadows wherever they are, making themselves invisible to anyone. They have been in existence for centuries, with all members of their families trained to use those abilities.

It’s one of the premiere facilities for the type of brain injury her brother has so it is expensive. This drives Sasha to become a waitress at one of the night clubs owned by the Ferraro family.

Perception – fostering an image that prevents other from seeing the real person. The Ferraro family has given the outside world a perception of rich playboys, while concealing their true lifestyle. In book 3 of the Shadow series “Shadow Keeper”, we get family, passion, vulnerability, Giovanni’s story.

Having survived an attempt on his family’s lives, Giovanni is forced to be on the sidelines unable to work and having to provide cover for others. He’s bored, tired, and frustrated until he hears a
Sasha you rock! Strength, class, family, passion. You checked all the boxes for me. In my mind you even raised Giovanni's status . Okay people don't hate me, Giovanni apparently made an impression on a lot of people in book 1 and 2. This series continues to evolve, each book is about one of the brothers and family. As they leave their own brand of justice in the world it raises some thoughts on right, wrong, does the end justify the means, but that is all on the individual reader. The story itse ...more

I enjoyed the suspense aspect of this storyline - I wasn't quite sure who was targeting Sasha initially or why. And then I couldn't quite figure out who the intended target actually was, whether it was Sasha or Giovanni. I love a good storyline that has enough twists that it keeps the reader guessing and it isn't too obvious what is going on.

Sasha was a good match for Giovanni - she wasn't a pushover, she was strong-minded, very stubborn, and they definitely suited each other sexually. For once

The overall story is still riveting but there are some big glitches with characters acting WAY out of character (ei: the car sex scene the very first day Giovannie and Sasha see each other outside work AND immediately following her declaration she does not want anything to do with him personally... huh????) And some unbelievable situations that make no sense.

I'm going to be the buzz kill that points out how stupid and irresponsible it was for them to be engaging in sexual activities while driving down highways, especially in light of the heroine's family having been decimated by a car accident in the past.

That quibble aside, it was a solidly enjoyable read. Good romance and suspense.
