SHADOWS OF PAIN by Ashley Dawn

Special Agent Kami Reynolds has never really felt like part of a loving family. Her partner Jordan Reiley and his wife Aurora and the whole Reiley clan have changed that. Daniel Jenkins and his partner Jd not only work with Aurora but are like brothers to her. When a past enemy rears his ugly head, Kami becomes his ultimate focus. Daniel Jenkins has strong feelings for Kami but thinks he doesn't stand a chance because of her Christian beliefs and ones he doesn't hold. Daniel was disillusioned by someone he looked up to who claimed to be a believer but committed the ultimate betrayal. When Daniel has a close call with his motorcycle and Kami is almost killed it begs him to reconsider how he feels about spiritual things. Just when they think things are improving the unthinkable happens. As the family converges to help stop the killer they will need every ounce of faith and skill to see them through.

Another great installment to the Shadow Series. I have grown so fond of the Reiley family and love how they operate. It is SO fun to watch. I love all the interaction and verbal play that goes on between them. They love and look out for each other just as a family should! I also like how the author continues to keep all the family members active in the story. To me that's what makes it not only good but also endearing. I like that the story had a satisfying conclusion but also left the door wide open for further stories. Which I am personally looking forward to. There is a such a good mix of action, suspense, and romance that it makes you want to keep turning pages. If you like a good romantic suspense you'll like Shadows of Pain. You could read this as a stand alone but I highly recommend you read them in order. (Shadows from the Past, Shadows of Suspicion then Shadows of Pain) It really helps in understanding the family dynamics. A thank you goes to the author for this complimentary copy for my review.
