Shadowflesh

Shadowflesh

By: Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Goodreads

 

Torn from her home and fighting bouts of suicidal depression, seventeen-year-old Aileen McCormick lands in the small coastal town of Redcliff, North Carolina. Her first day of school promises to be the worst day of her life when a menacing group of boys targets the new girl. A stiff arm shoves Aileen into the arms of Addison Wake. When he catches her, Aileen knows she will never be the same. Addison’s otherworldly charm and drop-dead gorgeous face leave her breathless, but only for a moment. Grim and painful secrets lurk in his dark soul.

Addison Wake isn’t exactly like other boys. Far from it. He’s dead and has been for 300 years, locked in an ethereal prison by a lethal enchantress named Donelle. When she hungers, she blesses Addison’s tortured spirit with moments of freedom, allowing him to roam the mortal world as Shadowflesh. But that dark blessing comes at a price. He must deliver the souls of five unsuspecting humans to Donelle.

Knowing he’s here only for a short amount of time, Addison refuses to let himself fall in love and break Aileen’s already fractured heart. He pushes her into the arms of another, but destiny throws the two shadowy lovers back together. In the darkness of her room, Addison confesses his love and his deadly secret to Aileen.

When four dead bodies pop up in Redcliff, Aileen asks herself is her love for the mysterious boy unconditional? Is the love worth the risk? And will she be the next victim?

My Review:

This is a spooky, Gothic kind of romance that just might never end up as a happy ending. This is the beginning of a series that I think will do very very well! There’s just enough action, and romance, angst and danger to make it interesting. The flow to this book is fantastic also, its one of those… “I have to go to bed! But no you must read another chapter!!!”  Kind of books. The characters were very well developed and were full of personality, the conflict in this story was also very well developed and is an actual conflict, not one of those pretend ones that make you shake your head. And the romance of this book, it’s one of those forbidden romances. It’s quite breathtaking.  Over all I am quite looking forward to continuing this series to see where the story plays out! There is a whole world of potential with this series! So exciting!

ForgetMeNot 453x680Forget Me Not
by Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Good Reads

Ever since Addison came back to Aileen, her have been brighter and life is sweeter. Until a mysterious man slips a spellbinding cameo around her neck, a cameo that strangles memories. Aileen is left with not the faintest notion who Addison is.

Addison, a three hundred year old fugitive from the netherworld taking the form of Shadowflesh, recognizes the cameo and the curse cast upon his unsuspecting love. But he knows breaking the curse, which may bring back her memories, will cost Aileen her life. To love her means to let her go.

But Aileen can’t take her eyes off the stranger who keeps ignoring her. The stranger who pushes her into the arms of another.

Geoff, who has waited oh, so long for Aileen, tries to sweep her off her feet at the Christmas masquerade ball. But a serendipitous moment lands Aileen back together with Addison. One passionate kiss later, she knows beyond a shadow of doubt that she loves Addison, the icy stranger with smoky blue eyes.

Remembering comes at too high a price though. Aileen must run for her life with the curse only a breath away

 

My Review

 

I was given this book in exchange for an Honest review by the Author Shawn Martin and Bostick Communications.

First off I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this book. This is book 2 in the Shadowflesh series, and deals with the same characters only a different twist of events. What would you do if you forgot one thing?? Something so important to you that you would be willing to risk your life for it? I honestly don’t know what I would do to tell you the truth.  Now that being said, this book is fantastic! It mirrors the first novel to the extent of where the characters are the same spunky amazing characters that have so much personality that they are reeking of it. And there is conflict, oh is there a hell of a conflict. There is romance (it is pg romance though) and the descriptions in this book are amazing. The flow was really nice and smooth and I didn’t find any real hiccups in it at all. The only thing I’m wondering is why more people haven’t read this. It was released March 31 of this year and there are NO reviews on Goodreads for it yet!! Have no fear though, I will be more then happy to remedy that for him!

Once again, it was an absolute pleasure reading this book for this review!
