(Shadows is a military romance, and can be read as a standalone.)
All my life when I have been told I couldn’t do something; I have fought to prove them wrong.
When I have been told I have to comply, mold, kneel to authority, it has been a struggle.
Men like me don’t kneel to anyone, it is not in us to submit and if we give off the false pretense that we are, you can bet your ass it’s for our betterment or something bigger than us as an individual.
Sweet, sexy, Mary Ward, my Little Lamb, has been deemed off limits to me.
For months, I have caged my desire and fought back the need to capture my prey. I have watched her fight her own desire, mask her confusion, and listen to the words she says yet doesn’t mean trying to keep me away.
I have studied her. I know who she is and what she is running from.
I know what makes her the way she is, and I will show her how to leave behind the false protection of the flock she surrounds herself with and surrender to the wolf waiting patiently in the Shadows.
The time to hunt, and play is over.
I will dominate her and break her down. I will to slaughter the lamb and she will never submit to anyone, but me.
(Sweeter than Honey)
“I don’t want you fucking weak, Mary. I want your strength. I couldn’t keep her safe, and it fucking kills me, but it doesn’t consume me anymore. The darkness, you can hide.” I half-laugh. “I live the life I do because I can’t and won’t hide it. As far as picking someone who thinks I can fix them to spend my life with, fuck that. People don’t fix other people; they fix themselves. You and I, Mary, we are survivors. I don’t want someone who isn’t going to eventually become strong enough to be my partner.”
“Eventually become? So you view me as weak.” She crosses her arms in front of her.
“Weaker than me? Fuck yes, I do. Once you survive the slaughter—”
“That’s sick, you know!” she yells at me.
My control has officially dissipated.
“Goddammit!” I storm toward her, grab her, pull her against me, and put my mouth on her ear. “Once you have given up your delusions of being safe behind your bullshit walls—which, I will point out, Little Lamb, leaves you vulnerable, aka, the slaughter—you rebuild yourself, knowing you’re safe. Knowing you’re desired. Knowing the only man you put up a fight against is the one you need to cave to.
“No one. No. One. Will feed your desires, let you fall apart, and stand back and watch you rebuild yourself, drawing from your own unbelievable strength in the safety you’ll find here and the knowledge that, when I get home—when I come home to you—we will be fucking good, so fucking good together.”
I pull back and look in her eyes. “I see you, Mary. I showed you me. Now let’s find us together.”
Shadows is part of the Norfolk series that started with Irons and Frankie. You don't need to have read those books first and the author has done a great job bringing unfamiliar readers up to speed, but why not start at the beginning??
We have had sneak peeks of both Shadows and Mary in the previous stories. Through this story, we find out about their troubled past and what has brought them to where they are today.
When Mary finally gives in to Shadows' pursuit and calls him Jeb---yeah, just want to melt right there. It's as if no one in her life up until him has given her permission to just be her. He sees her and through persistence gets her to see him. Once he breaks down her walls, she is all in.
As always, MJ gives us more than what we bargained for. The wolf/lamb imagery really helps the reader identify with these two characters. Perfect analogy! Overall, this story is about acceptance and belonging. The many layers of Shadows just blew me away. Tough military guy. Great, loyal friend. Sensitive companion. Dominant and giving lover. Really enjoyed getting to know him better.
And then there is the steam factor. If you EVER though bathroom s3x was getting routine in the books you have been reading---you NEED to hang out with Jeb and Mary! Holy Hotness!!! Well done MJ!
Wait....one more broody military guy to find out about....PLEASE bring us Titan's book sooner rather than later ;)
