Temptation in Shadows : Review

Temptation in Shadows
by Gena Showalter

Tall, lean, muscular—and definitely rough around the edges—Sean Walker is not your typical nightclub bodyguard. He’s a controller of shadows, able to wield darkness at will. But when a mysterious woman at the club turns out to have powers greater than his own, he has no choice but seduction…

My Review 
Gabby is hiding out and has a secret. She is a waitress at a night club and while her life is far from normal she thinks she is safe. A new bodyguard has her wanting more. Sean isn't your typical bodyguard he is really part of a secret organization and his job is to seduce Gabby and to keep her safe. Someone else is after them and they have to learn to open up to each other if they are going to live.

This is a short story but a good one. Gabby has really been on her own for a long time. She can break into computers or phones and they download into her brain. She has hid this from everyone. She isn't the type to fall for anyone as she can usually find their secrets out pretty quickly. Sean is dark and moody. He can control shadows. They both are great characters separate but when they work together they are amazing. They are in danger and they have to use their talents to stay safe. They aren't sure who to trust and while on the run really fall for each other. You don't realize it's a short story really as the whole thing gets told in the pages and it feels like a full length book. If you want a great short story that is amazing try this one.

4 out of 5 Stars

  1. I am such a HUGE Gena fan I can't wait to give this one a try. I don't get to read novellas much when they are released in anthologies, because I avoid those like the plague so I am so happy when they release them on their own.
