Review: Shadow Lovers

Shadow Lovers Shadow Lovers by Jenny Penn
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A fan of Ms. Penn's contemporary menage and more, this is a new experience... paranormal menage. The erotica is smoking hot as expected from Ms. Penn. This is the first in this series with two males fighting for the same woman. It is a fight three hundred years in the making. Perhaps this time around, Khal and Ryder will be able to keep their woman. If they do not make it right, who knows how long they will get another "redo".

For those who enjoy reincarnations, this one is for you. Readers who enjoy Tymber Dalton's Triple Trouble Series will also enjoy this one. Cookie is a hacker who disguises herself as a frumpy librarian. When her last heist crosses bath with two shocking gorgeous men, she quickly executes her exit strategy. What she doesn't know, is that she is the reincarnation of Khal and Ryder's lover. Her death caused a catastrophic event which plunged both Khal and Ryder's clans into darkness. It is up to the three of them to reverse the damage caused and create the happily ever after they wanted. This may be difficult as Khal and Ryder are at each others throats. Although one of them may be more heteroflexible than the other.

This story is fast pace and thoroughly enjoyable. Ms. Penn creates three stubborn and strong characters who do not want to bend. It is fun to watch the sparks fly. Their complicate relationship is exacerbated with sexual tension. This causes amusement to all bystanders witnessing Khal and Ryder trying competing for Cookie Nookie. This sexual journey is intense and panty moistening goodness. There are no plot twist. The story is straightforward even if the three characters stumble around each other in pigheaded blindness.

The world building is interesting and just a little taste. I hope the next book in the series fleshes this world more as I'm intrigued and want to learn more. The mythos is a mix of different paranormal pantheons as well as cultural mythologies. The story would be richer if there was a more cohesive world building and blending of the pantheons for a fresh twist. This paranormal romance is recommended to menage readers.
