Synopsis from Goodreads:
Shadow isn't a man to take orders from anyone, especially from lovely Fei—except that the daily friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of all-consuming passion. Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself: of the life they could have if only Fei could see past the lure of independence. If only bounty hunters weren't closing in on him. If only he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended .
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
The lead couple in this novel were perfect for each other. They complemented each others strengths and weaknesses while still remaining true to themselves and calling each other out when necessary. As for the female lead? She was priceless. After a while I found myself both cringing and laughing every time I heard ‘stay here, don’t get in trouble’ because you knew trouble was about to find her. The supporting cast, although not overly large, was also fairly well developed and each person served a purpose within the story. It was really nice to see a cast with a purpose. There wasn’t anyone who was there to simply increase the number of people mentioned.
This was definitely a unique story. I loved it and can’t wait to read more by this author.
