Enslaved in Shadows wasn’t really a book I was looking to read. I am so glad that I decided to read it.
Jesminda Zealand is out with her friend Bell. She is out to just have a little fun. She really wasn’t expecting to run into Draven Stone. But fate had other ideas and they ended up having a steamy one night stand in the jungle. Neither knew each others names and didn’t really expect to see each other again.
Five years later Stone is put in charge of watching a woman and her five year old daughter. Just because she’s the ex of the guy whose selling vampire blood illegally. She comes to the Shadow Unit for help.
Little do they know that they knew each other five years ago. Jen wanted to get help because her ex was very abusive and she wanted to keep her daughter Faith safe.
I started reading Enslaved in Shadows and didn’t want to put it down. I loved the way the author kept me in suspense. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen you are taking on another adventure. Nothing and no one are as they seem. They’re are so many secrets and you never know who to trust. Just when you start finding something out about one of the characters you are shocked to find out that there’s even more you didn’t know.
I was kept guessing through the whole book. I was just so spell bound. Really great sex scenes and such a wonderful adventure.
I thought I would find out more as I got to the end but it had to end and now I’ve got to wait for the next book to find out what comes next. I can’t wait for book 2 in the series.
Thanks Tigris for opening my eyes to another author and letting me read such a wonderful story. I loved all the characters. I got to experience all different kinds of beings that I never knew existed.

This book is a great romantic/erotic paranormal thriller. The storyline, while not new, is told in an interesting way with surprising twists and turns that will keep the reader hooked. The story follows Jesminda and Draven, two people as different as night and day. Tigris effortlessly has the story bounce between the pov’s of Jes and Draven. There’s no confusion as to who’s scene is being read. The story ends on a mild cliffhanger, that leads flawlessly into the sequel.
There are a number of errors in this book though. I would suggest Tigris sit down with whoever did the editing and the two go over the book. The errors, while quite noticeable, will not hinder the reader too much since they consist of the correct sounding word, just in the wrong one for the sentence (ex. we’re instead of were). A few errors are words missing a letter (her instead of here). Most errors are found in the scenes of high tension (sex scenes, fight scenes etc). Even with the errors, the story still flows very well which is a testament to Tigris’ writing abilities. Tigris is obviously a natural born writer and even with errors, the story will grasp the reader.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves their paranormal romance with a lot of spice, and some action. I look forward to reading Burned in Shadows since I must know what happens next.
Because of the amount of errors in the work, I’m unable to give this book the rating it deserves.
With a heavy heart, I give this book 3 of 5 paws

The only time I paused in my reading of this book was when annoying little things, like having to cook supper, interrupted me. Well written, the story grabs hold and doesn't let go. Anxiously awaiting the next!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Wow, a lot of different feelings about this book.
Overall, I did enjoy the story. The characters were amazing and how they intertwined in the end. I adored little Faith, even though there wasn’t a lot of her in this book, I just wanted everything to work out for her. All the varying types of paranormal characters were interesting, vampires, shifters, zombies, and others. Their interaction with each other and the humans was exciting. I also enjoyed the battles. I wish there would have been just a few more or a little longer. I also liked the connection between House Phoenix and Solon.
What I didn’t care for was the foul language. I don’t mind the use of certain language when warranted, but I felt this book overused the foul language in many areas. Second, I didn’t anticipate this book to be erotic romance and I’m not sure so much as it’s erotic as it just isn’t romance, but pure sex. The approach didn’t work for me. Also, the scene with Marcus and the pencil and pain just threw me completely off. A little bizarre.
The synopsis of the book makes it sound as if it’s such a great story, and it was, but I think it was buried a little underneath the language, sex, and bizarre.

If you like your books steamy and thrilling then look no further than Enslaved in Shadows! This hot Paranormal Romantic Thriller is a keep you on the edge of your seat kind of book. I love shifter romance and this one has a great plot and fascinating characters.
Jez and Draven is a very turbulent and steamy couple. They have a one night stand that creates a child that Draven doesn’t know about. Five years past and so much has changed for them. Jez is married to an abusive man while Draven is in a relationship with a female shifter. They are thrown back together when Jez needs the help of the Shadow Unit to protect her daughter and herself.
Be prepare – this book has a huge cliff hanger ending!
