description 3.5 Stars

I really liked the previous book in this series GHOSTED and Shadow and Zoe intrigued me a lot, so I was excited to dive into their story. Did I like it? Yes. As much as Ghosted...not quite. And I'll tell you why. (lol) My main intrigue about this couple came from things we learn in Ghosted. We don't get to that point in this book until 50%. Now I know the author had to lay the groundwork for the romance so when we got to that point things would make sense. But I found myself just pushi
Sociopathic Assassins finding love in all the wrong places

I love these books, the Hero’s are the toughest badass criminals you could ever find. They are damaged from being kidnapped as children and put into a brutal assassin program called The Pit, which got them addicted to a toxic drug that made them immoral senseless killers with no memory and a desire for blood and death. Now they are attempting to get off the drugs and out from under the thumbs down the men who run the program.

Nobody writes a dark and twisted romantic suspense like this author. Shadowed is a fast-paced novel that is full of intrigue, dark desires, plot twists, and action.

“Break her. Destroy her. Claim her.”
Shadow is an assassin who was abandoned as a child and has a traumatic past as he was forced into Team Zero - a group of people trained from a young age to kill while under the influence of the toxic drug, Omega - a drug that he struggling to detox from. Shadow is a dark and somewhat twisted hero w

Shadowed by Rina Kent
Zoe has vowed to avenge her mother’s death. By doing so, she has to infiltrate the underground and work at the famous La Salon. She needs to get close to those who can lead her in the right direction without blowing her cover. Unfortunately for her, she has attracted the attention of Shadow. While she can’t deny the instant attraction between them, she also can’t afford to lose focus on her true mission. Shadow is obsessed with Zoe and he knows what her deepest, darkest, de

Well, this one really hit me deep in the heartstrings! The author knows exactly how to grab a reader by the throat & heart & suck them down into an emotional whirlpool.
Shadow (anti-H) really resonated with me. Why? I truthfully am not sure. The other Team Omega stories were also filled with tragic pasts, horrible torturous training to survive & claw to the top & the periods of mindless slaughter they experienced when the Omega drug enflamed their minds & shed any trace of hum

5 stars!! This is my favorite book of the series thus far!!

This is book 3 in the “Team Zero” series. This can be read as a stand alone but these books roll with each other and I suggest reading them all. This book is Shadow’s story.

This is crazy but all these psycho’s grew on me. I knew they were a somewhat family before but this book made them more “real”. I fell for each of them even Mist in this book. And Shadow he really surprised me. I fell hard for him!!

Geez I just don’t know where to start! This book being the 4th in the Team Zero series bowled me over, I just could not stop reading this superb book.

A million thank yous to Rina Kent for writing Shadow’s story! Shadow pops in randomly in the previous Team Zero books and you will fall in love him. You will also be dying to know his story and who was the one that got away. When you find out, it will have you hollering because it is perfect! It is a small world.

Shadow and Zoe are just it for me. These two are my favorites of Team Zero. There are twists and turns and deceit that

I love that we find out Shadow is not hollow, is not Rubbish Boy but he is a man who loves deep and loves hard. The book is kind of split in 2 parts. The first 46% is mainly about Shadow and Zoe then the rest brings back characters that were in Lured and continues to develop and add more information and details about Ghost/Julian and Elle and other members of team Zero. The books in this series continue to get better and better as we find out about Team Zero and know although Omega turns them in ...more

This book is freaking insanely good. I have not read the other books in the series and I am not sure if I should tell you to read those first or not. I liked going into it blind, the author does a great job of getting you caught up to speed in what happened without going into over details.

Shadow is a member of Team Zero and let's just say that you don't really want to be a member of this team. This means that they were all forced into a live of mindless killing. He is a monster, but is there mor

Oh Shadow! With each Team Zero book, I think I cannot possibly like this one anymore that I liked the last book. So with that said, Ghosted had set the book bar pretty high for me going into Shadowed. Yet, Oh my holy hell!! 😍This book far surpassed ANYTHING I could have imagined. I’m so in love with Shadow and Zoe’s story. They are so beautifully and tragically damaged, yet absolute perfection together. They are so unbelievably hot. 🔥Shadow is the perfect blend of dominant, crazy jealous and sec ...more

At first I was confused because it's been a while since I read Ghosted, and really, I wished that Shadowed had been before Ghosted to be honest, but that didn't change that fact that I totally LOVED this story. Zoe is trying to get revenge on a man named President Joe, so she goes rogue & goes undercover in a place with another type of criminals who are dangerous as well. What she didn't count on was Shadow, who wants to make Zoe his, though he's worried if he does. Let me tell you, it's qui ...more

OMG - Rina Kent has hit it out of the ballpark again with Shadowed - Zoe and Shadow's story. Zoe's out to avenge her mum's death, and starts working as a waitress at LeSalon, where she meets Shadow. She's smitten with him at the same time that she hates him, and that hatred fuels his sick desires. He's Team Zero, trying to break his dependency on Omega but not always successful at it.

A fantastic book in the team zero series. This series is compelling reading, I could not put it down. I loved it.
I really liked the character of Shadow in Ghosted, and was intrigued by Elles friend Zoey. So I had been looking forward to Shadows and Zoey's storey. You certainly get to see a different side and gain a deeper understanding of Shadow in his book.
Although Shadowed can be read as standalone I would recommend reading the other books in the team zero first, particularly Ghosted, as they

Wow!! Every book in this series as it is released has outdone the prior one for sure! I absolutely love how they have all overlapped and it's not just a continuation of the last book. I adore Shadow's sinister personality but yet he absolutely adores his Nona. I couldn't get enough of Zoe's always diving in headfirst and without thinking way of doing things as well.

I love this series. This is Shadow and Zoe's story. We got a glimpse of then in Ghost and Elle's story. Shadow was abandoned and put in the foster system when he was a baby before he was kidnapped and forced to be a killer. Zoe also grew up in foster care. These two meet when Zoe goes undercover to seeking revenge for her mother. There is an instant attraction between these two and if you read Ghosted you know it scared Zoe and she fled. These two are intense when they get together. Secrets are ...more

Zoe childhood was filled with trauma and secrets from the most important person in her life, her mother. Her perspectives of her mother’s death was distorted and led her to revenge the only way she thought was possible. She would infiltrate the underground criminal world as a waitress of the Le Salon club. Her investigation was tedious and void until she crashed into the mysterious Shadow.

4.5* I am loving this dark series!!! Zoe is looking for answers and will do what it takes to get to her objective. She doesn't care what it takes for her to get what she wants. She wasn't expecting someone like Shadow though. He was not going to let this be easy for her.

Shadow saw her and wants her. Nothing will stand in his way. Not even Zoe herself. This book is action packed, loved meeting Nonna (sp?) and how Shadow was with her. Will Zoe and Nonna be the ones that finally make Shadow see re

Ms. Kent has done an amazing job with this series. In Zoe and Shadow's story we learn more about these two as the mains, while Ms. Kent keeps the other characters warm for us.

Shadowed is the first book that I have read by Rina Kent. I was not sure what to expect but the description looked interesting and her reviews from prior books looked pretty good so I figured I would give it a read. I was really happy that I did as this book does not disappoint. I know that this can be read as a stand-alone but it is recommended that you read the previous books in the Team Zero series and I wish I had had the time to do that. If
