Review ~ Into the Shadows (The Associates #3) by Carolyn Crane

Into the Shadows (The Associates, #3)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: July 16th 2014

He’s working undercover for the good guys. That doesn’t mean he’s one of them. 

Thorne McKelvey knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer just kinky enough to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her was the hardest thing he ever did, but his undercover mission could blow up at any second. No way will he drag Nadia down with him.

Maybe it was foolish to fall in love with her late father’s deadliest henchman, but Nadia Volkov’s not sorry; without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful little boy. There’s nothing she won’t do to protect Benny, which means she must hide his identity—especially from his father.

Now Thorne has burst back into her home, searching for clues to a gangland mystery…and stirring a hunger Nadia hasn’t felt in two years. But Benny’s identity isn’t the only secret she’s keeping, and things are turning deadly. Can Thorne and Nadia trust each other long enough to stay alive and have a chance at happiness?

My Opinion

I really thought I would like this book. It held the prospects of everything I love in the blurb but unfortunately it isn't holding my interest--and I hate to say that. I'm not sure why, but the story isn't making me want to continue and for the last 10% I have been trying my hardest not to skim. The start caught my attention and I thought this would be a gritty, dangerous, action-packed romance but the romance is taking too long to develop and it's not as dangerous as I would have liked. 

I'm not sure if this is because it's the third book in the series (even if it stated it could be read as a standalone) but something just isn't connecting so I'm going to stop at 47%. I may come back to it one day ...
