Gray's Shadow (Kings of Hell MC #4) by K.A. Merikan 5*
BLURB: --- There can be no shadow without the man to cast it. ---
Gray. Lost his twin. Will never be complete. Works alone.
Shadow. Monster? Human? Exists to be Gray’s one true companion.
After losing his twin brother, Gray has devoted his life to the Kings of Hell MC. He will do anything to protect his family and that means anything.
Even sell his own shadow to the devil.
Following a fire that left him without one arm, Gray feels pushed to the sidelines. In order to prove to his club that he is still capable of completing dangerous tasks, he will have to team up with the strange creature from the Other Side. Tall, inhumanly strong, and menacing despite the handsome exterior, Shadow is just the tool Gray needs.
The moment Shadow lays his eyes on Gray, he wants to crawl under Gray’s skin and make the human his.
Gray on the other hand isn’t willing to get attached to a monster destined to do the devil’s bidding and disappear once his time is up. Rejected, Shadow has to do everything in his power to convince his human that they belong together.
But as the clock ticks away precious minutes of Shadow’s existence, Gray will have to choose between his loyalty to the Kings of Hell MC and responsibility for the creature he brought into this world.
My Review: I loved the previous books in this series so much that I actually bought it as soon after it's release as I could. Then I almost ended up staying up until the wee hours of the morning to keep reading. I really enjoyed catching up with all the old characters from the previous books and finding out how they were coping in their battle against the bad guy. I do recommend reading the previous three books first though, as this one does not stand alone and needs the background to be found in those books to understand what is going on.
I really felt sorry for the main characters as they dealt with their new reality but, by the end of the book, I was totally behind the decisions they make to continue with said reality. I especially liked the character of Shadow, as he reminded me of a love starved puppy constantly begging for attention from it's owner. Overall this had all the stuff I liked about the first three. It was creepy, scary (but not in a gory way or I wouldn't be reading it), and yet it was also romantic and sweet. I can't wait to find out what happens next and hope it won't be a long wait for book 5 *There will be a book 5 won't there K.A,?*
