Ivy Mason is hiding—from her past, from herself, and from anyone who could love her. The only kind of love she’s ever known hurts, leaving scars on her body and soul. Now, her world may be boring and predictable, but that’s exactly what she wants. Until Devon Clay walks into her life.
A lonely man in a deadly profession, Devon works as an agent for an underground British agency known only as the Shadow. Nothing about him is safe or ordinary. The danger that consumes his life turns into an addiction Ivy can’t resist...even if it proves fatal.
As Ivy’s past begins to catch up with her, she wonders if love really is the twisted thing she’s always thought it was. Maybe it could be more with this man, who’s shown her that she doesn’t need to protect herself from everyone. Is what she feels for Devon worth the risk? He may save her heart or break it, if she manages to stay alive.
There’s a lot to be said about In His Shadow. It’s all about sex and suspense. More sex leads to more suspense. At first, Ivy Mason is put off by one of her bank customers named Devon Clay. Then, she sees him kill someone and everything changes. Nothing is what it seems. She is drawn into a web of lies and espionage that all revolves around the pursuit of a biological weapon. As much as she should keep away from Devon, Ivy is drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Their sexual chemistry is several shades of grey and their own personal demons make you hope that they have a happily ever after.
Since In His Shadow is a romantic suspense, there is so much to know and so little that I can tell you. I was sucked in from the very beginning and read the book at lightning speed. I never had an idea as to what would happen with anyone no matter how many times I tried to guess. That says a lot because I can usually figure these things out fairly quickly. Ivy had been afraid of most men due to the tragic events of her childhood. However, she puts herself in imminent danger every time she is with Devon. Devon is part of a super secret British intelligence agency called “Shadow”. He has been connected to the deaths of a lot of people according to the FBI. He doesn’t show remorse, nor does he let his emotions get in the way of doing his job. I would say more but...This is one of the best romantic suspense books that I have read in while. I have read several Tiffany Snow books and had lost interest in her storytelling up until now. If this is a sign of things to come, she has earned a new fan.
