Nanee's Review of The Family (Book 1 Men in the Shadows) by Rain Carrington
Blaine had an angelic face and a sheltered life. All he longed for was a love that could chase the loneliness and make him feel wanted. What he got was a beautiful man with a quick fist and lots of secrets.
Troy was beautiful and deadly. From the first he showed that he had violent tendencies, but the trusting Blaine thought he could overcome them and help Troy become a better man. When he realized there was no changing him, Blaine sought help.
Help came. Dante Carrillo was the brother of a mob boss, but under that was a man who had lost enough in his past to appreciate the angelic beauty. He swept in to save Blaine from the abusive Troy, but his family ties put Blaine in even more danger than Troy had been.
Can love save Blaine or will it make him the latest victim of The Family?
Warning: Contains scenes of BDSM, sexual situations between two consenting adult males, implied noncom tho none written, and physical abuse.
Wow! This book is intense (in the best possible way!). From page one I absolutely loved Blaine. He's sweet, shy and so damn cute. I wanted so badly for him to have a HEA throughout this story. Blaine's life hasn't been easy up to this point but now he's contented with his job at a lake resort and in awe of a new cabin owner who he watches run each day. Troy, he seems like a intense but genuinely nice guy in the beginning, he's sexy and total alpha male but holy hell do things change. I had goose bumps on my arms with the horror that Blaine went through with Troy and I wanted to yell and scream and hit something in parts but boy when Dante come's in the picture things turn around. Dante and Blaine are perfect for each other and I couldn't be happier with them meeting and damn the sexy turned even more sexy!!!! There are a ton of twists and turns in this story and what the hell just happened moments and there is a ton of sexy! This story kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more...So many things happening in this story and it all came together perfectly. WOW! I cannot say enough about the emotion in this story...the sexy and the twists and turns. Cannot wait to read Biker next! 5 Stars. (I so badly want to say more but you have to read it yourself to get the total wow of this story)
