Review: Shadows (Bayou Magic #1) by Kristen Proby

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Kristen Proby, comes an all new paranormal romance set in the mystical city of New Orleans…

I am never alone. Not even when I am alone.
I see the unquiet dead, the souls that wander through the French Quarter.
They can’t move on, and I can’t stop seeing them.
I wear malachite for protection, and I control what I let in. It’s the only way to stay sane. Everything changes the day Cassian Winslow joins my ghost walking tour and knocks my world off its axis with green eyes the color of the stone around my neck.
An unspeakable evil is loose in New Orleans, taking young women and leaving a bloodbath in his wake. More shadows lurking for me. More unhappy dead. There might be a way to stop it.
Open myself up to Cassian.
If I do, it could spell his death.
But if I don’t, it’s mine.

MY REVIEW

“I’m drawn to you in ways I can’t explain.”

“This man doesn’t merely kiss and call it a day. No, he kisses like it’s his damn job. Like kissing me is the only thing in the world he can think about. As if he’s wanted to kiss me for decades.”

Shadows is a haunting and intriguing paranormal romance that will have leave you on the edge of your seat right until the very end…

Shadows is unlike anything I’ve read from author Kristen Proby before. From the moment I dove into Cash & Brielle’s story, I was hooked. I loved the New Orleans setting and all of the creepy elements the city alone adds to the story. Not only do you have the perfect setting, but when you add 3 unique sisters to the plot line, you are destined for a treat.

Now, I’m not going to go into a ton of details, because I want you to be just as surprised as I was. Shadows is a thrilling and creepy paranormal romance. You may think you know what you’re getting into when you pick this book up, but I promise you Kristen Proby has a lot surprises in store for you. The characters are complex, yet so easy to connect with. The paranormal story-line was intriguing and captivating. It was fresh and unique and kept me glued to the pages. The romance and chemistry between Brielle and Cash was intense and off the charts. Cash was the ultimate book boyfriend. He was supportive, protective and oh, so swoon worthy.

I loved everything about Shadows from beginning to end. This book is the perfect Halloween treat. It’s well written and consuming. It’s sexy and thrilling. It’s filled with mystery and suspense and things that go bump in the night. It will keep you on your toes and it will keep you guessing right until the very end.

Shadows is the first book in the Bayou Magic Series and I can not wait to see where this series is going to go next!!
