I’ve been waiting on Shade for a loooong time - pretty much since he first turned down a sweet butt in Trip’s book. What biker does that?! I knew there must be a whopper of a story there and boy, did we get it. Such a brutal, heart-wrenching story. I cried for young Shade. His back story is the stuff of nightmares. What should have turned him into a psychotic monster actually turns him into a heroic vigilante. I loved him- one of my favorite JSTJ heros ever. Chelle is amazing and perfect for him ...more
I must start by saying...I will slay anyone and everyone who touched my Shade. (Note the book does have a trigger warning, so I am not giving away any spoilers) As a survivor, I can totally put myself in maybe one-one millionth of his horror. But he came out stronger than ever, more determined than ever, and more faithful than ever for his FAMILY!!!

If you haven't read books 1-5 and the Manning books...I don't know why not and I cannot excuse it. Go to those, one click the heck out of Jeanne St.

Jeanne St. James never ceases to amaze me with her ability to write about a subject matter that is very haunting yet very real and one that we tend to overlook. Shade has been a member of the Blood Fury for two years, but what do we really know about him His childhood was not a good one. He finally found a brotherhood when he joined the Blood Fury. He was a broken soul, suffering from nightmares, and was afraid that he would never have a love like his brothers and their old ladies. He was biding ...more

Oh my goodness!!! I probably said that before, but those stories written by Ms. James are getting better and better with each book, and with every character, we meet in this series we get something else, something more to the story. This time we concentrate on Shade, he was a character that had me intrigued from the very first book he appeared in!
Shade is the person that always keeps to himself, he wants to keep in the shadows - you know the type, he wants to stay out of the radar. This is his M

I have read a lot of books, and never has a book captured my heart and soul like Shade’s story. This book had everything - every emotion and then some. Not sure that I can adequately describe the intensity of this story without spoiling anything. Jeanne St James is a master storyteller, she has the ability to capture your mind and make you live the stories through the characters. This book is by far one of the best books I have ever read. She not only captured my undivided attention, but she cap ...more

Shade had so many sides to him and every experience made him the person he was. He has always kept his secrets to himself and did not want anyone to uncover them. You will be hooked on Shade as soon as you start reading his story. What can I say about Chelle; she was an absolute gem. She had her own set of secrets and Shade was determined to find out what they were.
My excitement and anticipation was at an all time high waiting for Shade's story and his story did not disappoint-you will love thi

Shade is a man who quietly does without anyone knowing.  He also quietly suffers.
As a single mother Chelle holds family above all else. When she meets Shade, there is something about him that calls to her very soul.
But can Shade overcome his dark past by letting Chelle's bright soul into his corner? And once she finds out about his past, will she still want a man so damaged?
The delicate balance that Jeanne St. James writes is pure poetry. She gets the story across of these rough and tough bike

I may have said this before but this series just keeps getting better! Each book is a little different than the last but each are amazing. I thought the prologue to Cage’s book tore me up but this one almost had me in tears. Shade is always on the sidelines, quietly watching and now I know why and it breaks my heart. Chelle is perfect for the quiet man. She’s funny and sweet and compassionate and she doesn’t back down or give up. There’s a void in each of their lives and together they fill those ...more

This amazing book made me have to catch my breath many times. What an incredible story! I love Shade so much. His story shattered my heart, I can barely begin to express my love for Shade. I am both grateful to Chelle for loving him and helping him heal and jealous of her because- DAMM...Shade is just AMAZING and I would love to trade places with Chelle! This book hit every emotion there, anger, hate, need, joy, sorrow and more. Jeanne St. James continues to create the most incredible ...more

Oh, my poor, poor heart. Nothing I can say will ever adequately prepare you for Shade's history, not one single thing. However, I will say this book is going to have an impact, a lasting impact on you. In the end this story is as beautiful as it is horrifying, so keep that in mind before deciding to read it. A tale like this is not an easy read, and honestly it shouldn't be. This book will gut you and rip your heart from your chest. You can expect tears and tornado of emotions. That Shade is the ...more

My emotions are all over the place at the moment. I just finished reading Shade and I am so grateful for being able to read this book. So many things happened to Shade before he found his family, his brotherhood. None of them know to what extent his life changed. They only know he is the most trusted man that he can be. A chance meeting due to a family tragedy brings him to the woman who can make him whole again. His woman couldn’t be more perfect for him. She is kind, loving, understanding and ...more

Usually the more tears, the more stars. This book would rate ten stars on a one to five scale. It is hard to review a book that tells one man's story of being a sex slave since age four before being set free at seventeen, totally unprepared for life. Few make it, but he did, eventually finding a place for himself in an MC club. In this family, loyalty to the brotherhood goes a long way and they all have secrets to be respected. The author amazes me with her ability to describe this man's experie ...more

Shade has overcome a horrific past that would have destroyed most people and he has emerged from the ashes stronger and more resilient. He is always there for everyone he cares about but he guards the secret that he believes defines him with everything he has. He believed that the life he was living was all he could have until Chelle and her children come into his life and give him hope for the future.

Chelle is exactly who Shade needs in her life as she is not only patient and compassionate but

Jeanne St James is one of those rare authors that you know is going to twist you all up inside and possibly break your heart in the process, but because she is just that good - you keep going back time & again not caring how you end up once you reach the ending.
Shade's book just about broke me - but alas I know I will be back for more when the next book releases in this magnificent series.

It is very hard to get close to people when you are trying to hide the awful things that have happened to you when you were very young, but the moment Shade meets Chelle it is as if something shifts and he has finally found someone. Being a widow and a mother of two teenage girls the last thing Chelle ever thought she would be was attracted to a younger man - an a motorcycle club member to boot, but through lots of time, honesty and trust the unlikely duo come together for an emotional and heart ...more

For me, my favorite heroes are the broken ones. More than a few authors have written damaged heroes that have stolen my heart and I have returned to those books numerous times. They will always be the ones that steal my heart. Shade is another hero, another battered soul that I couldn't help but love. His woman, she is a jewel, so sweet and kind. She doesn't hesitate to show him how she feels. Full of tears, genuine affection, love and family, Shade's book is complete and utter perfection. I'm s ...more

I really enjoyed Shade and Chelle. When these two meet the chemistry and attraction is at the forefront like bam in your face. Shade has secrets that he keeps close to the chest and he’s finding that having Chelle and her girls around just might help him heal. Chelle has had her own battle wounds and has prevailed and sees the kind of man Shade is and wants to be there for him in every way. You will be sucked in and not able to put this down. You get all the feels with his story and it will tug ...more

I knew as soon as we were intro’d to Shade I was going to need to survive his story.

This was a tough one to navigate all that darkness could not obstruct the searing cleansing light that Chelle brings to Shade’s world.

Shade has all the makings of man that has not had the best of anything, the darkness of his past drowns him, yet he has such sweetness.

Chelle is strong and witty and her determination is such an inspiring trait.

I loved their immediate attraction and their intense chemistry, and

Shade doesn't speak unless he has something to say, he keeps to himself and does his duty to his Brothers. He doesn't want to be touched and no one knows the painful secrets he carries deep inside....and they never will. Chelle has lived her life raising her daughters the best she can and working at the school. When Shade meets Chelle for the first time he wants someone to touch him, he wants to be in their presence. Chelle is weary at first...he is in a motorcycle gang and well younger than her ...more

What do you get when you combine an emotionally scarred badass biker and a sweet librarian? A roller coaster ride type of love of epic proportions!! Jeanne St. James truly floored me with the newest Blood Fury MC book! I was pulled in from the moment it started as I wanted to know more about Shade. He is so much more than you see on the surface. He is haunted but wants a love of his own. Chelle is the perfect person to soften and heal him and I didn’t want this book to end! This book tugs at you ...more

I say this for every new Jeanne St. James book but she out did herself with Shade. Shade is AMAZING. A very hard/sad read that ends up with a HEA. Chelle is the best match for Shade. She is wise & had some rough life experiences but she handles Shade and his background with grace & everything I felt like Shade needed in a partner. I loved the unexpected twist towards the end. 5 stars isn’t enough for how Ms. St James handled some pretty hard stuff to read. Can’t wait for the next book in this se ...more

Shade has adapted to the trauma of his past to ut is still haunted nightly while holding tight to the need to take care if those around him who is now his family of brothers and their ties and he is selfless. By chance and sad circumstances he meets Chelle and her daughters.

As Shade fights his demons, himself and the need to right the past, he finds more than he was ever hoping for when he realizes he has a family of his own.

Yet another book by Jeanne that surpasses my every expectation! Shade’s backstory is explicit, painful and horrendous. How he’s been able to function - is thanks to this MC family. The love story of Chelle and Shade is intense, passionate, and Chelle is the perfect ‘Ol Lady for Shade. Jeanne - you outdid yourself with this storyline. It’s complex. It’s thought provoking. It made me cry and ultimately, the story ended on a perfect HEA for them (with a surprise too).

What can I say about Shade’s book?? Um let’s see it was SPECTACULAR, A MUST READ book!!! This book really hooks you from the get go and makes you think about your life and what may be going on around you. I know it’s changed me. Shade is a man who hardly speaks but when he does you listen. Who happened to get the attention of the local librarian! You think it won’t work but hope it does. Another must read by Jeanne St James

This story line tugs at your heart strings as well as makes you mad at unrepairable circumstances. The characters are strong, determined and have great connections. I found this to be an amazing read; I cried, I laughed, my heart broke at times. Fantastic addition to the Blood and Bones series. You do not want to miss this one.

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

Each new book that JSJ writes in this series is fantastic. But this book, it’s on another level. Shade broke my heart. No human being should suffer what this man has been through in his life. Finding the club and his brothers has gone a long way to helping him but when he meets Chelle something shifts. Yes this story will break your heart but JSJ slowly puts it back together again in the best ways.
This is a slow burn romance.

Jeanne St James is the queen of MC romance. No one does it better. This story is intensely emotional story that will capture your heart and soul. It's also sexily sensual and satisfying. Shade and Chelle will give you life. It's a journey of a broken soul and redemption of a alpha male and his alpha female. It's told in different points of view, no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a hea. I highly recommend this book. ...more
