Title: Night Shift
Series: Nightshade #2
Author: Carey Decevito
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance/Suspense
A past that haunts no matter how much the distance…
Which one will strike first?
Eighteen deaths over eight years has left Shane Peters itching to find his mark. The death that started it all ensured his obsession with the murderer who had turned his life into a living hell, leaving him to raise a newborn daughter on his own.
Starting over wasn’t the easiest thing, but Emberlyn Roth had managed by shear grit and the skin of her teeth. It’s too bad one can’t outrun their past.
A protector of the wronged, Shane is torn between his duty as a detective for the Jacksonville PD and a quest to find himself some peace. Red tape binds his capabilities and moonlighting as an investigator for Nightshade Securities has him feeling stretched thin. Late nights on the streets and his sense of duty keeps him from being the father he wants to be. Throw onto his already rickety house of cards, an attraction to the mysterious Emberlyn, the lead he’s got on the murderer he’s been hunting for nearly a decade, and threats his woman is receiving by an unsavory character from her past, and he’s seriously tempted to take Dalton Kipper’s offer to join his team in a permanent basis.
Rules have a place, but when you’re faced with losing the one that means most to you, lines can become blurred. With the fate of his family’s future hanging in the balance, he’s ready to risk it all.
4.5 of 5 Stars
4.5 stars for this page flipping, nail biting adventure with a side of sweet love and super cute 9 yr old. What more do I need to say. 😊
Shane is a hard working detective for the local PD who spends way to much time at work. He is determined to hunt down the serial killer that started with his wife. When he isn't at work he is home with his little girl Rosie who is growing well beyond her years. Guess that is expected with a cop for a dad. Shane has not either wanted nor had time to begin looking for a new life partner.
Rosie has taken to the beautiful neighbor as a friend. Ember enjoys her company and loves spending time with the sweet girl. Life has not been simple for Ember and she is determined to do things for herself and be the strongest version of her she can be. She has noticed the sexy dad across the street but he doesn't seem to see her the same way.
When they finally come up close and personal the sparks begin to fly. Suddenly Shane has a want for more. When Ember gets spooked that her Ex has likely found her, Shame swoops in to care and protect her. Will she be able to move past the fears of the past and let him in?
This is a well paced book that kept me up late with a need to know what happens next and be sure is everyone OK. As I made my way to the ending I felt like the author did a great job of giving me the whole story without gaps, as I finished I know I will miss the characters but I didn't need more.
