Shadows of Pain by Ashley Dawn

Revenge is sweet….unless you are on the receiving end of it.

“Do you know of anyone who would want…you dead?”

Officer Daniel Jenkins was no stranger to the dangers his job posed but usually he knew who was trying to kill him. Being stalked was a completely different ball game, and he wasn’t sure there were any rules…

“…I need you.”

Terrified didn’t even begin to describe how Kami felt with the stalker targeting her. As an FBI agent you were trained to handle stressful situations, but being the victim put the whole process in a different light.

As the killer gets closer, so do Kami and Daniel, but will they live long enough to see their love bloom?

Only God can save them from this unknown killer…

My Thoughts:
HOLD IT! You NEED to get on-line and find this book! It is an EXCELLENT read!

Daniel is such a personable fellow! You can totally relate to him as he fumes and tries to justify what he's done/is doing. He is so easy to fall in love with as you see him hurt and recovering. Kami gives Daniel that extra push to help straighten out his thinking and help him. When she becomes a target as well, Daniel has to put his selfish thoughts aside to focus on helping to bring the perpetrator to justice. Neither Daniel or Kami make very good 'helpless victims'.

It was encouraging to see how Ashley Dawn wove Daniel's struggle with his faith and how he came to terms with God into the relationship he and Kami were developing. It seemed true and accurate to how many people would feel or act in today's society. Kami's support for her friend came through strong. It was fun to watch how their relationship bloomed from friendship to romance.

Ashley Dawn is one of my all-time favorite authors. She does a fantastic job of combining suspense in a family oriented setting with a great plot, and well defined characters. I enjoy reading the series and seeing how she pulls a few new characters into the mix along with giving us so much more information on characters that made an appearance in previous books. While each of the books easily stands on its own, it is so much fun to read them in a series and watch the characters grow and learn. I give her book a 5/5. You definitely need to get this book for your keeper shelf!

I want to thank Ashley Dawn for providing this book to review. I was given the book in return for an honest review and the above opinions are 100% mine.
