Review: Wrapped in Shadows by Lisa Eugene

One night of shadows. One night of bliss. One night of evil.

Katherine Regina Vandercamp has everything. Wealth. Beauty. Social standing. She’s the heiress to the Vandercamp fortune and engaged to the man of her dreams. One night it all shatters…

Finding her fiancé with another woman, she is distraught and makes a reckless decision to go with a friend to a sex club. Needing total anonymity, she has sex with a stranger in a room of total darkness, a sensuous cocoon of silky shadows. She has no idea who this man is or what he looks like. But it is in the shadows she finds solace. In the shadows she finds bliss.

She can’t forget this stranger’s touch, his taste, his scent. He infiltrates her dreams and holds her thoughts and body captive. But had she made a false assumption about her fiancĂ©? Had he really been unfaithful? She regrets her hasty actions and is tormented by guilt. She is determined to marry the man she loves and forget her stranger.

Sinister events unfolded at the sex club. There was a gruesome murder and her stranger has been charged with the crime. Katie knows he’s innocent because she was with him at the time of the murder. She is shocked to find that he’s not a stranger after all. Will she reveal her horrible secret? Will she besmirch the Vandercamp name? Will she risk losing the man who has her heart to save the man who’s touched her soul?

Will coming forward put her in danger? Her life is in turmoil. All because of that one night.

A night that changed everything…

Katy is not your average spoiled rich kid. She abhors her parents and the way they think more about their social status then what is good for her. Katy runs the family's charity foundation, and she's good at it. She's hired women who were down on their luck and she enjoys going into work each day. Her only real stress, the wedding to her fiance Josh. Her mother is driving her crazy with the plans. When she decides to go over to Josh's apartment and finds him in a compromising situation with his ex she decides to cut her losses and end the relationship. 

Her best friend has an answer for her, a night of sex with a stranger. Katy's never been to a sex club before and some of the rooms she sees make her uneasy but the proprietress has the perfect room for her, and the perfect man. The room is dark and neither can see each other but the sex is the hottest she's ever had.  Weeks later she's still thinking about it, but Josh has convinced her that what she walked in on was harmless and with her mother pressuring her to go ahead with the wedding Katy reluctantly goes with Josh to a party for work. But one of the men Josh works with is the man from the room, his smell is ingrained in her memory. 

Luke Davenport lost his wife four years ago. She was murdered and he was left with Livie, his daughter. Livie is his world, that is until his friends buy him a night at a sex club. Kate rocked his world that night and he can't stop thinking about her. She is best friends with one of his employees, and she's engaged to another but neither of those things is going to stop him from trying to get to know her better.

Luke and Katy are drawn to each other, but the murder of the proprietress the night they were at the sex club throws another roadblock between them. Luke is accused of the murder and it looks like Josh is the one setting him up. Katy has to decide which man she can believe in. 

I enjoyed reading this book. Luke is a hot, Hot, HOT man and he's a wonderful father that just makes him more appealing. I love the relationship between Luke and Livie! Katy needs a head slap a few times but she is a sweet girl who does not deserve the asshole Josh! Luckily Luke comes into her life just in time! 

This is a solid 4 star read! 

Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn't get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.

When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance.
