Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

In a world of paranormal, Gena Showalter does it again with her newest anthology, Temptation in Shadows.  This story embodies Gena's flare on the supernatural world.   

Sean Walker, a superhuman with the ability to draw on the shadows and become almost invisible.  He has always been the person to do whatever he needed in order to help other supernaturals, as well as humans in need.  Working for Rose Briar, a classified independent firm who provided safety for those with extraordinary abilities; Sean is the "go to" agent and always gets his target.  However, when the target becomes more personal, he will risk everything to save this woman...Gabby.

Gabrielle Huit is a young woman who has been on the run for most of her life because of what a psycho doctor did to her.  She was turned into a technopath.  When her path crosses with one extremely hot body guard, she questions everything she's every thought.  Instant attraction, Gabby longs to stop running and grasp hold to the one man that makes her body sing...Sean.

I loved this book in every way!  I was kept on the edge and felt so much a part of the story.  I literally love how Gena portrays all her characters in such a compromising way that you feel like you know them or can relate in one way or the other.  The characters in this story made me hurt for them as well as rally for their success.  Of coarse the romance that she intertwined into the story, fueled my longing for this couple to triumph.  So if you want to read a story that will take you to the edge, send you spiraling out of control, only to bring you back to a place of peace, hope and love, this is the book to read!  Awesome job as always, Gena!  GrÄ“ta

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  Once again, Gena Showalter brings to life the supernatural and real life.  This book will lift you up and keep you there for a while.  I could so see this book being made into a series.  Hint, hint!! 

Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  Gena Showalter is one of my favorite paranormal romance author's of all time.  I love the way she creates her characters, even the most hated.  She has a way that makes her characters come to life and seem so real that even a guy who can bend the shadows seems so normal and everyday.
