Smoke and Shadows (Guardians, #3)

Smoke and Shadows (Guardians, #3) FINALLY Badass, Alpha Hotness Viktor and Classy Marissa I truly enjoyed this action packed thrilling love story I am sure I am not the only reader who wishes this series could be made into a movie, that would be epic I loved seeing the other couples from previous books SUPER FANTASTIC Keep them coming Miss Paige. I ve been slow in reviewing Smoke and Shadows That was a disservice to readers, because this book was great Unlike many other readers reviewers, this was my first book to read by Ms Paige For that reason, my review is different People who get to the third book in a series know the characters, have expectations, understand the voices in other characters mouths They make assumptions I could not I started with book three and was not spoon fed books one and two as a quick recap to catch me up with the action I was thrown into the deep end And I loved it The shocker at the end of chapter one may have meant less to me than someone immeshed in previous books characters, but it was still a surprise, still piqued my curiosity, and led me create questions around characters, relationships, and loyalties This is one example of why Ms Paige is not a one hit wonder but a very talented author Having the ability to continue a story line that is fresh to a current reader, but doesn t preclude a new reader is skill that should not be overlooked I now need to go back and read the previous books as well as her other writings I wantof these characters and this authors writing style I may change my rating up once I see the fabric of the three books and how they are woven For now, grab this series I have no wordsthat s how awesome this book is Viktor Baran is now the ultimate alpha man and makes these other dudes look like little boys playing alpha man Bravo Victoria this was the best of the series so far I can t wait for the next book. Wow This book is intense, action packed, fast paced, suspenseful, HOT And boy, was it filled with domineering ALPHAS who are made of steel but lose it when it comes to their women.Viktor Baran, the ultimate alpha, was jaw dropping awesome He would seem callous, cold, calculating unfeeling mainly because his job calls for it, his training, the decisions he has to make his history But he fell hard when Marissa came back into his life It was funny seeing him come to terms with his feelings At first, he seemed confused, stunned and then very persistent dominant in his claiming To say their chemistry was hot is an understatement It was sizzling I don t think I ve made myself clear enough So I m spelling it out for you He ignored her squinting eyes and continued What we have is not a temporary hook up You re my woman I take care of what s mine The roof over your head What you eat Hell, I ll buy you all your fancy clothes and soap I don t want you to have too many options, like a row house you can retreat to when you ve got something up your ass She sputtered at this, but he continued speaking over her When you re horny and need some fucking my tongue and my dick are your one and only option I want to be your one and final option for everything you need WOWZA Marissa was perfection for Viktor Any other woman would probably bore him to death She s feisty, stubborn very headstrong She s her own person can sure take care of herself Enough to keep Viktor in line It was fun watching them butt heads Woohoo to strong women The intensity of Viktor s love for Marissa was tried tested a few times And he certainly delivered I would damn the whole world for you And he really would I want permanence These past months with you, you gave me back my humanity I don t want to become a soulless bastard again, and I have a feeling without you in my life, I m going to revert back to it You re my weakness and my strength You believed in me, when I d lost faith in myself I need you to believe in me now enough that I could make you happy forever and make this permanent between us sigh Such a tough guy yet vulnerable Very endearing.Needless to say, I loved this book The story line s gripping my heart stopped a few beats a couple of times So thrilling I enjoyed seeing the other characters in the previous books whom I ve grown to love, too Hope Jack Maia will seehappier times after their loss hint hint A MUST read Enjoy This is not the type of book I generally read Government and covert operations are not something with which I am familiar I ll admit it, chaos and danger in a book make me exceedingly tense Romance, however is right up my alley This book reminded me of the action movie that is pleasing as a date night movie Lots of action that keeps you on the edge of your seat and romance so you can swoon along the way The constant twists and turns kept me reading to see what was to become of the characters The romance factor made me smile and satisfied my need for a love story amidst the chaos My knowledge of government activities is limited so there were areas where I was confused That was directly related to my own inexperience in this arena My only issue was Marissa s choices toward the end of the book Other than that, good read that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was privileged to beta read this book prior to publication in exchange for a fair and honest review Wow Just Wow I love this book It is a mind blowing romantic mystery filled with hot hot hot badass special ops guys and gals The intrigue is off the scale in suspense my heart was racing and my mind spinning trying to guess what was going to happen next The passion, oh my, the passion how these men love their women The women are not your normal, girl next door types they are seriously tough, feisty government secret agents or private sector secret agents who can kick booty as well as their male counterparts The villains in this book are vengeful sociopaths who will stop at nothing to achieve their evil goals Ms Paige has weaved a spellbinding story of intrigue, betrayal, and love that knows no bounds I highly recommend this book to all adults 18 years due to the mature theme containing sexual scenes and violence I have rated this book 5 stars and wish I could give itI will most definitely be readingbooks by this author.
