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.
I only read her books when I borrow them. I will not pay money for them anymore. (less)

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 ...more
So I have been addicted to this latest series that Christine Feehan has been writing, and I know there have been quite a few mixed reviews on these books and granted they might not be for everyone, however I would like to point out that they TOTALLY work for me in every which ...more
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 ...more
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 ...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 ...more
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…
I was a bit scared going into this one because I didn’t finish Shadow Reaper. I’m so glad I took a chance and requested this one! My mind was made up when I saw it was going to be about Giovanni. I was always interested in his story and Christine didn’t disappoint.
Giovanni was hurt and can’t ride in the shadows, so while he heals so he is to be a decoy in the media as a player while his brothers do the family work. Giovanni hates ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I was so excited going into Shadow Keeper. When I began this series I was a little apprehensive about the powers the Ferrarro family had. Fortunately over the course of the series I've come to better understand it and the way that the family lives.
As seems to be a normal trend, at least in the books I'm reading, the men seem to know the heroine is

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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Rated 4.5 Stars
I loved this installment in the Shadow Rider series. The threat against Sasha was a complete mystery with twists and turns until the end. That made for a pulse-pumping read. I also liked that Sasha didn’t spend most of the book fighting the strong attraction to Giovanni. Although he came across as domineering and ...more

The book wasn't bad. However, the erotic parts were just a bit too much.
But that's just me since the book falls in the erotica genre.
The best thing I love about Christine Feehan's writing is the deep emotions :)
That quibble aside, it was a solidly enjoyable read. Good romance and suspense.
