    3.5 starsChase Churchill feels nothing but relief when he hears his father is dead Years earlier he had left home to distance himself from the atrocities his father, a convicted serial killer, had perpetrated Now living in New York, he has built a new life for himself as a published author of graphic novels under the name C.A Hill But things start to unravel for Chase after a disturbing phone call from his younger brother Joel Suddenly the few people he has become close to are in danger and 3.5 starsChase Churchill feels nothing but relief when he hears his father is dead Years earlier he had left home to distance himself from the atrocities his father, a convicted serial killer, had perpetrated Now living in New York, he has built a new life for himself as a published author of graphic novels under the name C.A Hill But things start to unravel for Chase after a disturbing phone call from his younger brother Joel Suddenly the few people he has become close to are in danger and Chase has no choice but to accept the help of policeman Kayne Kennedy, his former lover.As Chase and Kayne try to deal with the danger from an unhinged person bent on revenge the men also deal with the love and desire neither has been able to forget As the danger grows Chase realizes he must do whatever it takes to protect Kayne from a crazy killer even if it means putting his own life on the line Shadows from the Past starts off strong with the revelation of Chase s family history but when the identity of the person targeting him and those close to him is revealed early on it leaves the rest of the story a bit flat There is still the suspense of who will be next on the list of victims and how and when the killer will be stopped but I missed the mystery element The story is told in both Chase and the killer s POV which was interesting in a way but after the first couple of times I could have done without being in the killer s mind.Chase and Kayne are both well drawn and likable men and their relationship is interesting if a bit sugary at times Kayne spends a good portion of the story trying to convince Chase that he loves him and that it s okay for Chase to love him back so there are a lot of I love you s said by Kayne during the book A lot Although it does take until the end for Chase to admit out loud his love for Kayne their chemistry is strong throughout and their sex scenes are well written and hot.Overall this was a good story but it does contain elements of violence throughout which may not be for everyone Solid writing and interesting characters kept me engaged and the book will no doubt appeal to fans of the author and those looking for a suspenseful plot along with their M M romance

    This story has a possibility to be really good, UNFORTUNATELY, it reminds me TOO MUCH of Ms Davis s other story, Loving Lucas From Chase s characters, to Kayne s abudant I love you even the 3rd point of view of the murderer It s too much of similarities to make it stand on its own Which is too bad I still think it s nice, but I givestars for Loving Lucas.

    I admit I was sucked into this book despite the often gruesome and harsh realities associated with the psychopathic killers that share page time with our main characters I struggle with violence of this type I don t really want to read about it It s too prevalent on the news as it is I use my romance erotica book reading time to escape that reality Had I known the secrets would be what they are I wouldn t have picked this book to read Chase spends a great deal of time in this book struggli I admit I was sucked into this book despite the often gruesome and harsh realities associated with the psychopathic killers that share page time with our main characters I struggle with violence of this type I don t really want to read about it It s too prevalent on the news as it is I use my romance erotica book reading time to escape that reality Had I known the secrets would be what they are I wouldn t have picked this book to read Chase spends a great deal of time in this book struggling with a few questions that I could totally understand him asking Taking into account what his father did and the newest turn of events his family puts him through, his actions seemed realistic I felt for him He was put in a terrible position that anyone would find untenable That he pulled himself through it and was able to reconnect with Kayne in ameaningful way was a miracle Additionally, the ending was not stereotypical in some ways Kayne does not rescue Chase Chase does not save himself Both tried and true clich s that are churned out in the last chapter of book after book like this I liked the ending however, again, it was too graphically violent for what I expect out of my romances So, on the one hand, a very well characterized tale of men falling in love under very difficult circumstances On the other hand, the violence too often overshadows much of the romance

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This one definitely did not thrill me as much as I hoped it might At the end of the first chapter, though they re not actually anything alike the fake Doverville Demon vs Son of Sam , just having the thought He s the Son of Sam uel Really just soured me to the point that I wasn t sure I wanted to continue But I did.Then I got to see just how tortured Chase is, to the point of thinking stupid things that he eventually acted on, and even though I know there are people who feel this This one definitely did not thrill me as much as I hoped it might At the end of the first chapter, though they re not actually anything alike the fake Doverville Demon vs Son of Sam , just having the thought He s the Son of Sam uel Really just soured me to the point that I wasn t sure I wanted to continue But I did.Then I got to see just how tortured Chase is, to the point of thinking stupid things that he eventually acted on, and even though I know there are people who feel this way IRL, it was just a train wreck waiting to happen, and I really didn t want to read it But I did.And I do my best to suspend my disbelief, but I cannot imagine any police force allowing a detective to continue working on his lover s case once they find out about the relationship And though I tried to enjoy it even knowing that was unrealistic, it just soured things further whenever I got to one of those unrealistic details.So yeah, it was HFN by the end, but the experience to get there just didn t do anything for me 2 stars

    I enjoyed this one Aside from the one TSTL moment that set up the not very neat in a good way climax and resolution, the story was well crafted with characters that mostly seemed genuine I found the shrink to be a bit much, but that s just me.

    In a word Maybe read the thing First things first this book is hella dark Chase s father was a serial killer and he s just committed suicide while on death row Chase has done his best to separate himself from that part of his past, but then his younger brother Joel completely loses the plot and starts targeting Chase and the people closest to him Chase s only refuge in this shitstorm is his lover Kayne, who Chase had initially pushed away because of his troubled past but who is now back in In a word Maybe read the thing First things first this book is hella dark Chase s father was a serial killer and he s just committed suicide while on death row Chase has done his best to separate himself from that part of his past, but then his younger brother Joel completely loses the plot and starts targeting Chase and the people closest to him Chase s only refuge in this shitstorm is his lover Kayne, who Chase had initially pushed away because of his troubled past but who is now back in Chase s life because the love is there Honestly, Chase and Kayne s relationship was probably my favourite part of the book because it was 1 almost disgustingly cute, and 2 made up probably the majority of the scenes that didn t frustrate me What becomes clear fairly quickly is that this story isn t a straightforward romance, it s a thriller that just happens to have a romance complete with sex scenes in it The story is told through both Chase and Joel s points of view, so a lot of the story s focus is on their shared past and Joel s current crimes One downside to this is that getting Joel s point of view means getting a lot of misogynistic rants and justifications for his, and by extension his father s, crimes It s quite disturbing and frustrating, especially when he s allowed to go on about all this woman hating bullshit and it s fairly unchecked because most of it is happening in his head Chase s sections tend to balance things out a bit with him vehemently disagreeing with everything Joel stands for The story isn t so much a mystery, as we know who the villain is in the first chapter it sa thriller with Chase and Kayne in hiding as they try to figure out where Joel will strike next Though I will say that I didn t find it overly suspenseful or anything, since a large part of the story was Chase and Kayne in the safe house with Chase blaming himself for everything that was happening, Kayne constantly reminding him that none of this is his fault and that he loves him, and Joel just seemingly running amok It was actually kind of boring a lot of the time, although it s pretty short so at least it was quick to read, even if the pacing came off as kind of sluggish read the full post at In A Word

    I was really not expeting this novel, or at least not the development it had Chase is the son of a serial killer and his father committed suicide in prison before the death sentence could do justice there is no doubt Chase s father was guilty even if, a bit, I was expecting some black point, some unclear clue that gave a little of hope to Chase that indeed his father was not a serial killer And instead no, Chase is the son of a monster and he has to live with this awareness Moreover, when hi I was really not expeting this novel, or at least not the development it had Chase is the son of a serial killer and his father committed suicide in prison before the death sentence could do justice there is no doubt Chase s father was guilty even if, a bit, I was expecting some black point, some unclear clue that gave a little of hope to Chase that indeed his father was not a serial killer And instead no, Chase is the son of a monster and he has to live with this awareness Moreover, when his father dies and Chase s brother, Joel, calls him, the reader me, romantic at heart reads that scene like a last chance for Chase to rebuild at least a relationship with his brother and mother, now that his father, the killer, is dead And again, instead no, Joel is maybe evencrazy than his father and almost immediately he becomes a killer himself There is no doubt to whom is the killer, there is no doubt that Chase is innocent, that he has no the same deviated gene his brother inherited by their father That is basically the main point of the novel Chase is flagellating himself with a sense of guilty that he has not reason to feel He is his father s son, that is true, but he has never once condoned his father s actions, let alone forgive him He completely changed his life, he detached himself not only from his past, but also from his future, not letting himself being loved by a good man, Kayne, that is a cop and comes from a steady and loving family Chase has not right, or merit, to have a man like Kayne by his side, Chase is guilty and he has to pay for his father s sins The problem is that no moral jury accused Chase, no one is pointing him like even a little responsible for his father s actions, not even when his brother starts to kill people around Chase to make him pay for a betrayal Joel feels he has committed towards him and their father, not even then Kayne and public opinion are accusing Chase And I don t think that, for Chase to be comfortable with his coscience, is enough he has the remission from someone Chase needs to condone himself, he needs to understand that he has not right to feel sorry, that he is not his father or brother, that he has no way to make things better on their stance Only then Chase will be ready to love and being loved back

    It was okay Not terribly believable, and the characterization was a bit lacking Chase seems to rather overdo the tortured why me routine, and Kayne seemed kind of flat as well , but short enough that it didn t drag on incessantly That said, the basic premise was a pretty interesting one, and I feel like the idea s got some real merit to it but the execution put it in solid two star territory for me.

    Really, really, really predictable And illogical Since when would any police department let the lover of the witness be his guard And how exactly were Samuel Joel able to have these in depth conversations about how Joel was to carry on the mission in prison Wouldn t those conversations have been monitored The sex scenes were rather ho hum, and Chase comes across as too weepy most of the time The best part of the book was how Joel met his end Really, really, really predictable And illogical Since when would any police department let the lover of the witness be his guard And how exactly were Samuel Joel able to have these in depth conversations about how Joel was to carry on the mission in prison Wouldn t those conversations have been monitored The sex scenes were rather ho hum, and Chase comes across as too weepy most of the time The best part of the book was how Joel met his end
