Review: Enslaved In Shadows by Tigris Eden

Title: Enslaved In Shadows (Shadow Unit #1)
Author: Tigris Eden
Source: Received in exchange for review through blog tour


A man's Past leads to his Future......

Agent Stone of the Shadow Unit's job is simple, most days. Work in the Shadows, police his own Kind.

When an unwanted assignment turns out to be his darkest fantasy from the past, Draven can't help but be conflicted by the memories of the past and his responsibilities in the future. But his decision has been made.

The Heart of a woman is Tested........

Jes can't let the tall dark agent back into her life.
How can she trust any man after what she's endured. Years of abuse have broken her down and she doesn't have room for more. The man she turns to for help hasn't abused her physically but he's tormented her emotionally. A past betrayal left her scarred, but also brought her life.

Can she accept him into her heart and trust him again?

One will survive and adapt, the other will realize hearts can be mended even if it’s a bit too late.

The road to forgiveness sometimes only brings more pain. Unexpected events set their lives on two separate tracks leading to one outcome. Lives will be changed and an emotional battle to save their souls will leave them both trapped and enslaved in their need for one another.



Enslaved In Shadows is the first book in the Shadow Unit series by new author Tigris Eden. It's a paranormal romance with some very steamy sex scenes. First, I want to mention that I received this ebook as an advanced review copy – so the final version might be better. The version I had needed some major editing. There were many grammar errors, as well as odd sentence structures and awkward word choices.

I'm not big on one-night stands, so I was a little bit disappointed at the beginning. I like there to be love along with the sex. Draven, the hero in the book, was sort of an ass and just left Jes in the jungle after he got his fill. He wouldn't even tell her his name. A little bit later, the book fast-forwarded 5 years and I started enjoying the story a lot more. Jes and Draven meet back up when she turns to the Shadow Unit for help getting away from her abusive husband. She is unaware that Draven is an agent with this company.

Jes slowly lets Draven back into her life. For the most part, I ended up liking him but he acted pretty possessive. They had some good passion between them. The other characters in the book were pretty interesting. I liked Royce – he added some humor to the book.

I want to add that there are some graphic torture scenes that are pretty gory – not something for someone with a weak stomach. The ending was disappointing to me. I really didn't like where it was headed, though I think things would change in the next book. There was a pretty big cliffhanger, which is frustrating. The next book comes out in December – I'm curious how things will turn out.
