A serial killer…
A past that haunts no matter how much the distance…
Which one will strike first?
Eighteen deaths over eight years has left Shane Peters itching to find his mark. The death that started it all ensured his obsession with the murderer who had turned his life into a living hell, leaving him to raise a newborn daughter on his own.
Starting over wasn’t the easiest thing, but Emberlyn Roth had managed by shear grit and the skin of her teeth. It’s too bad one can’t outrun their past.
A protector of the wronged, Shane is torn between his duty as a detective for the Jacksonville PD and a quest to find himself some peace. Red tape binds his capabilities and moonlighting as an investigator for Nightshade Securities has him feeling stretched thin. Late nights on the streets and his sense of duty keeps him from being the father he wants to be. Throw onto his already rickety house of cards, an attraction to the mysterious Emberlyn, the lead he’s got on the murderer he’s been hunting for nearly a decade, and threats his woman is receiving by an unsavory character from her past, and he’s seriously tempted to take Dalton Kipper’s offer to join his team in a permanent basis.
Rules have a place, but when you’re faced with losing the one that means most to you, lines can become blurred. With the fate of his family’s future hanging in the balance, he’s ready to risk it all.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Right OMG!!! this book I really can not say enough good things about it.
So my expectations were not very high when I started this, first I don’t read much romantic suspense and second, this author is an unknown for me.
Well, let me tell you Carey Decevito has blown me away with “Night Shift” I couldn’t put this down, Simply stunning.
So on to my review, So this was my first book by the talented Carey Decevito and I would classify Night Shift as belonging to the romantic suspense genre.
The basic gist here is that Shane Peters a cop is on the hunt for a serial killer.
A killer that eight years ago murdered his wife leaving him a grieving widower with a baby daughter.
Ever since the killer has been murdering two women a year lookalikes to Shanes dead wife.
Shane knows its personal and is determined to apprehend the sadistic monster that stole his life.
Over the street to Shane lives Emberlyn a gorgeous sassy blonde with secrets and haunted eyes.
With Shane’s little girl an avid fan of his neighbour, he himself starts to take a keen interest and it’s not long before the two begin to fall, but with both their pasts gunning for them it’s not long before they start to convene into one big clusterfuck.
So that’s the condensed version of this enthralling story.
The story itself has no big twists in regards to plotlines but that really doesn’t matter as this story and the emotion it conveys grab you by the throat instantly.
The main characters themselves are extremely likeable and the love story that slowly emerges is just beautiful in its simplicity.
I don’t usually like dead perfect wife tropes, but it really didn’t bother me with Night Shift maybe because the author manages to convey the intimacy and sentiments between Shane, Emberlyn and the little girl Rosie so perfectly.
I am just in love with this adorable little family.
I’m not really going to delve into the actual plot much as you can read that for yourself.
But I will just say, give this a go, I’m highly confident you won’t be bored.
This story flowed brilliantly with plenty of action and had all the ingredients to keep its reader hooked to the very end.
I was provided with an ARC of Night Shift (Nightshade Book 2) by Carey Decevitoof which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
