Don’t think I’ve read this many new authors in a span of few months and adding Tiffany Snow to that list of interesting discoveries with her “In His Shadow”, book one of Tangled Ivy Trilogy.

Ivy Mason has built a life far away from a past that had painful memories. Working in a bank, she hides behind a steady job, and a routine that brings stability and structure to her life. Sharing an apartment with her childhood friend Logan, and with her life revolving around her job and a handful of friends, she has no clue that bumping into Devon would throw her life into a fast and furious ride.


Devon works as an agent for an underground British agency called the ‘Shadow’, and true to that name he leads a life in the murky and dangers of evil walking the world. He is after a man believed to have a vaccine for a deadly virus that is being targeted to be unleashed into the population, and Devon is chasing down the terrorists to stop it. Ivy ends up in the crosshairs of this dangerous mission when a customer at her bank is murdered, and she unwittingly gets linked with life threatening events and Devon.

As Devon protects Ivy, she falls for him. As Ivy tries to fathom the mystery that Devon is, he wants Ivy with a desire that knows bounds; despite the threat his profession carries. Loyalties are tested, trust becomes a heavy price to pay, and passion is an addiction that cannot be cured. Ivy is courageous and brave enough to test the waters of the evil and sacrifice for her love. Devon would go to the ends of the earth to keep Ivy at his side…forever.

“In His Shadow”, takes you on a ride of adrenaline rush, with evil lurking in the shadows and international struggle for power and control. A couple of times I felt there was a break in the flow of the story, but then the pace picks up and takes you to the end…yet not the end. This really doesn’t leave you with a cliffhanger, but clearly leaves you with the feeling of more coming.

Devon and Ivy sure have some unfinished business!!!

A very good read that definitely holds interest and leaves you wanting more…
