Sleigh Tour Winter Book Review: Winter's Shadow by M.J. Hearle


Hey everyone!  It is my turn, Crystal, to host my favorite Winter read!  I read this book last year I think and well it has stayed with me ever since.  I hope you enjoy my review and make sure to stop by our Sleigh Tour page to see all the awesome Winter themed books this week at our awesome bloggie friends!

My Winter themed book is Winter's Shadow by M.J. Hearle
Winter's Shadow (Winter Saga, #1)
My Thoughts:
For those who follow our blog you all know by now that we love and I mean LOVE Aussie books and Aussie authors, this book is no exception.  Winter's Shadow is writing at it's finest and I am so in love with M.J. Hearle.

Winter's Shadow starts off with Winter's meeting with Blake our resident hottie/bad boy/mysterious guy.  He is everything that you want in your paranormal bad boy and when he saves Winter's life she quickly becomes entranced by him. Their chemistry is off the charts and I loved how the author dragged out their story.  And I say dragged out in the best way possible.  It felt like breathing, every sentence was in inhale and an exhale just so beyond brilliant.  Blake and Winter were amazing characters, they complimented each other very well and well I have a soft spot for guys who protect their ladies.  Blake is fierce and scary but you can't help but fall for him and his tormented ways.  Winter, and can I just say that I love that name, was not your typical heroine and I loved her for that.  The story has a very unique twist and I have to say it was amazing!   I can't say I have ever read a book like this before and it just goes to show you that Aussie's definitely have something in their water.

M.J. Hearle has crafted something that is so unique and different and I can't wait to read the sequel!!  If you are looking for a new and refreshing paranormal then you really need to grab this book!
