Hannah Green wants her life back. In the past three years she’s gone from promising graduate student to patient in a mental hospital. Now, she’s being held prisoner by a terrifying group of men who believe she has a mysterious power. She wants to think they’re wrong, but something inside her has changed. If only she could use her power to set herself free.

Conner’s entire life, he’s played by the rules. He’s a soldier. A leader. He knows better than anyone that contact with the Shadows is forbidden. So when a midnight phone call demands he rescue one from a nest of demons, he has no intention of following through. Until he sets eyes on Hannah. Brave, beautiful and determined to survive. Conner can’t walk away.

When you’ve worked so hard to make the right choices, temptation can be a kind of torture. Conner knows he should turn Hannah over to the Shadows. Hannah wants to be grateful for her rescue and let Conner go. But when love and desire bind two strangers together, they have to choose between what they think is right and what they know they need.

My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Shadow's Awakening is a fast-paced, paranormal, romantic rush. From page one I was completely behind heroine Hannah, really there was no way not to be. This is one of those books where I couldn't seem to turn the pages fast enough to satisfy my curiosity. It causes me to read faster and faster until I have to go back because I'm skimming too fast.

During the first quarter of the book, I was so engrossed, I doubt I would have heard my phone ring or someone call my name. Fortunately that didn't happen. I think. Connor and Hannah are both strong characters, easy to root for, easy to love. Hannah's that sweet, yet fiesty woman, unaware of her powers and her appeal to the baddies. Connor is that caring alpha-male you just want to protect you... even if you don't need the protection.

The plot was interesting with the two rival factions battling demons. And then you have poor, clueless Hannah caught in the middle. The sexual tension between the main characters was so high, I thought they might snap before they finally gave in to desire. The pacing at the beginning and end was tight and exciting, though the middle slowed down a touch. A lot of that came from the immense amount of world building needed to explain everything,

If you're looking for a fast-paced, high-energy paranormal romance (that's heavy on the romance), be sure to add Shadow's Awakening to your TBR list.

About Molle McGregor

HeadshotRevised2-150x150Molle’s writing career started when she was seven and suffered terrible insomnia. Night after night she couldn’t sleep until long after mid-night, only to wake a few hours later. Frustrated with her inability to just go to bed, (and her penchant for sneaking a book and a flashlight under the covers) her grandmother said, “You like to read so much, why don’t you tell yourself a story until you fall asleep.” With this brilliant advice, Molle’s overactive brain was off and running. Now, years later, she’s finally taught herself to sleep, but she’s never stopped telling stories.
When she’s not reading, writing, or staring into space making things up, Molle is getting into trouble with her husband, two sons, two dogs and vicious attack cat in the mountains of North Carolina. She likes to hike, cook, listen to music way too loud, and hang out with her boys. She does not like dusting or emptying the dishwasher.
