“Enslaved in Shadows” is Tigris Eden’s debut novel…and it’s an AMAZING debut novel to her series Shadow Unit. I had a hard time putting it down. Let’s say the first few chapters was a sexy, scorcher read. Wow! Jesminda has never done anything out of character until she’s on vacation and ends up coming across one sexy man who drives her wild. Draven is actually on an assignment while Jesminda is on vacation. He never expected a woman to pique his interest like Jesminda does. He shouldn’t be interested in her since she’s human and he’s not. The book then picks up five years later, and Jesminda and Draven end up running into each other again, but this time Draven, who is apart of the Shadow Unit must protect Jesminda from her ex-husband and his company. I could go into detail more about this book, but I will end up spoiling the book for someone who wants to read it. There was so much going on in the book, and the ending was a doozy. If you like happily ever after…..well…let’s say Tigris Eden throws you off at the ending. Sorry…not spoiling it for you. I loved the characters in this book. I’m actually in love with Royce. Oh yes…he’s very mysterious and just a smart ass and the way he’s described, doesn’t help either. He also has a twin brother…but he seems to be a little too mysterious for me. One part of the book grossed me out with him. I love Tigris Eden’s writing style and how different it is. I love the story she created for “Enslaved in Shadows,” and I loved the cliffhanger. I love Draven…oh…how I love Draven. *sigh* I also like Jesminda and how she was put through hell but was able to stand up against certain people in the book. Although, I did find myself re-reading parts of the book because I did not understand what was going on because it would go by pretty quickly. This is an excellent start to a series. I plan on reading the next book. I want to know what the hell is going to happen next since that cliffhanger pissed me off. (but in a good way) I recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal romance, loves characters that can have you laughing, and for readers who always enjoy a good cliffhanger.
