Review: Seduce me in Shadow by Shayla Black

Seduce Me in Shadow
by Shayla Black
(Doomsday Brethren # 2)

The Doomsday Brethren have a war on their hands.  Picking up right where things were left off with Tempt Me with Darkness, we have one warrior without a mate who is going crazy from the loss of their mate bond, and a whole lot of crazy happening.  Matthias, having risen from the dead and gathering an army of undead soldiers, wants to take over the world and only the Doomsday Brethren are standing in his way.  The Council is oblivious to his comeback.

So Caden MacTavish is Lucan's brother.  Lucan's mate Anka was kidnapped by Matthias and their bond was cut so he is now reduced to basically an animal.  Caden, having lived his whole life as a human, now has to deal with the Brethren for his brother.  He will do anything to help them so they can all work together to find Anka and bring her back to Lucan.

His first assignment...Squash the supernatural stories being printed by an english sensationalist reporter who seems to have a bit too much inside knowledge of their last battle.   Sydney is a journalist with a supernatural source, and she's been printing stories that are threatening to expose them to humans.

I got a bit annoyed at both the hero and heroine at times in this book because he fights against his magic nature, doesn't want anything to do with magic, not even to learn how to use his even if it can help someone, because of his past experiences.  Sydney on the other hand can be a bit thick-headed but she came around when it was needed.

The two of them had a lot to deal with: Lucan's missing mate, the Doomsday Diary appearing, Caden coming into his magical powers and finding his mate.  They worked through most of it together and I think they worked well as a couple.  And ummmm they were very hot.  Caden is ex-military and extremely brooding alpha type.

Now for my favorite part of the book...of wait, I actually thought the plot was great as well as the developments in the series story arc and how it evolved in this book... but for my favorite part: Bram and Shock.  Yes, I'm a little in love with both of them.  Shock because you can't really tell if he's good or bad, I like him most of the time but in the back of my mind I suspect his every move.  And that makes him irresistible.  And Bram is awesome.  I love him, I'm so jealous of whoever ends up being this mate he's looking for.
