Four months have passed since Ellie’s heart was broken by her cheating boyfriend, Gerrid. Sick of mourning, she sets out in search of a man to make her forget. Madame Eve of 1Night Stand arranges for Ellie to meet just the man at Nocturnal Nightclub in Miami. Bryce is not only sexy as sin but full of mystery. He does things no man should be capable of. Ellie might question his fast speed, cold hands, and even the way he bites at her skin―if he wasn’t so determined to awaken the part of her that’s been buried by lies.
Days have passed since Bryce’s last feeding and his vampire hungers demand to be sated. But feeding is not his only intention. Ellie seeks to be a different woman, to gain power for herself, and Bryce plans to push her to discover it. To show her she can do things she never thought possible and force her to see the strength she yearns for already lives inside of her.
Ellie will have to choose, expose all of herself, or remain hidden in the dark shadows. But Bryce will have to make a choice of his own—let her go or keep Ellie forever?
*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Heartbroken and lonely, Ellie decides to put everything behind her and enlists the help of Madame Eve of 1NightStand, for a night of no-strings-attached fun. Afraid of who she’ll encounter at the Nocturnal Nightclub, she invites her friend Kenna to come along, but when she sees who Madame Eve has chosen for her, Ellie quickly loses her fear and apprehension. Bryce is the perfect male specimen, tall dark and handsome, with plenty of sex appeal and charm. Ellie senses something different about Bryce, but she won’t deny herself the pleasure she’s longed for. In one night of unspeakable passion, Bryce will satisfy Ellie’s hunger while sating his own, and when all is said and done, both find themselves wanting much more than just one sultry night together, maybe an eternity.
SHADOWED SOUL is a racy read entwined with passion, healing and romance. Ellie is delightful as heroine who has been scarred in love, but who unleashes her wild side in order to heal her heart. In Bryce she finds the adventure and lust she seeks and sees a wounded soul very much like her own. He not only takes her to new heights of ecstasy, he unleashes the powerful and fearless woman she once was with just his touch.
Bryce is to die for: sexy, mysterious and fanged, he had me swooning from the start, his mere presence dominates a scene. Like Ellie he’s a tortured hero in love as well, but this vampire knows how to seduce and worship a woman in the bedroom, his sexy ways will have you fanning yourself long after you put the book down! Stacey Kennedy has an eloquent way of writing a bold, erotic scene that naturally exudes both passion and romance, even when the characters are meeting for the first time. She has a gift of combining sensuality and substance in a novella, allowing the reader to become completely immersed in its characters and story as if they were reading a full length novel. If you’re looking for a an erotic tale to spice up your reading, look no further!
