Into the Shadows is about two broken people who are fighters and survivors. Thorne is part of the Associates and so deep undercover that until recently, others in the group didn’t even know he was an Associate. Most people think he’s one of the leaders in a criminal group called Hangman. Nadia’s deceased father was a gangster that Thorne used to work for (undercover) and she and Thorne had an intense, sexual relationship. No one in her life ever saw her, the real her, except Thorne. And it’s the same for him; Nadia saw through all his crap and they formed a relationship that worked. When he overhears something that’s a lie (Nadia only said because she couldn’t bear to lose him) he thinks that he means nothing to her so when her father died years before, and Thorne got what he needed for his undercover job, he just cut her out of his life because he assumed he meant nothing to her.
The story starts two years after their intense time together with Nadia’s gangster father dead and her a new mother. And her priorities have changed in a big way; she’s no longer the ‘Party Princess’. Not only that but she found out something she was never supposed to and it changed her reality. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but what she’s doing with her life is incredibly noble and her actions inadvertently make her life intersect with her ex, Thorne. When Thorne storms back into her life years later the chemistry between them is so potent it jumped off the pages. What he’s working toward is also noble and I loved that two broken people got a second chance.
There’s so much action and mystery in this book and it’s skillfully woven with intense sexual tension. I think my favorite thing about Crane’s characters is that they’re all incredibly flawed yet likeable. It makes getting to the ending that much better. Into the Shadows is an edgy, gritty romantic suspense with two main characters who will break your heart and have you laughing moments later. I highly recommend this romantic suspense to fans of the genre!
Each book in the series has focused on the unique skills of the Associate. Book One was mathematics, book two was linguistics and this book is chaos. Crane has done an amazing job in writing the stories in such a way that they have the feel and flow of each. This book was slower in building intensity and suspense than the first two. It is a reunion with a long continuation of the big misunderstanding. But when it breaks loose, it is impossible to put down. I grew to love Nadia and her mission. That she could see and cherish the real Thorne was another plus. And Thorne, just wow. There has never been a better good bad guy. This book and series get a solid five stars. Can't wait for the next one. And while the books can standalone, they are better when read in sequence. Book One, Against the Dark, is included in the Danger and Desire anthology, another five star book. Book Two, Off the Edge, is sold individually.
I wasn't sure I'd like Thorne in the beginning...his self hatred made me want to slap him and hug him all at the same time. Yummy as he might be his past should never define him. But he was yummy and his hard core warrior attitude won me over.
Nadia on the other hand...gurllll...I wanted to slap her several times...tell that boy the truth...tell him who he is to you...let him help you...GEESH!
But the story was awesome...the plot was not your typical romantic suspense and the ending had me cheering for all of the Associates and getting excited about the others books. Although I'm very excited to read Zelda's story...she and Dax have me so intrigued...
