Publisher's Summary

A past that defined a future....

Shade has a secret. 

One he’s hidden most of his life. 

Secrets created in his past. 

Of a broken family. A little boy lost. 

Of broken dreams. With only nightmares left in their wake. 

As a prospect, his MC nicknamed him Shady because he’s quiet and keeps to himself. 

As a patched member of the Blood Fury, he changed it to Shade, because that’s what he prefers...to stick to the shadows. 

To remain unseen. 

Then he sees her. A flicker of light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. 

The only problem is, he may never escape that darkness until he sheds the chains of his past that weigh him down. 

Subject matter may be sensitive to some listeners. Please refer to the content note at the beginning of the book before buying or listening. You can access that by using Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature or downloading the free sample. This info is also on my website. 

Note: Blood & Bones: Shade is the sixth book in the Blood Fury MC series and is an age-gap romance (younger man/older woman). As always, this book has no cheating and no cliff-hanger, and has an HEA. It’s recommended to listen to this series in order.

Keeps getting better and better!

I don't know how she does it, but Jeanne St James keeps writing original stories that not only have steam and action but will tug at your heart strings! This one, from the first line had me captivated and excited to keep going. Shade had a horrible childhood, things he never speaks of and keeps the secrets close to his heart. He keeps to himself, quiet and a man of few words. That is until the day he meets Chelle. A widow with two girls, she is a mess the day he meets her, but there is something about her that calls to him. She calms him and he feels comfortable. Chelle too feels the same pull, but the age difference is unsettling for her. Seeing the MC lifestyle is a bit unnerving as well, but Chelle sees Shade for who he is, and never gives in when times get tough. The question is, when she does find out the entire truth, will she still feel the same? This is a complex story that unfortunately is more relevant that I would like to think. It is thought provoking and at times disturbing, but most of all heart wrenching for Shade. You just want to grab him and hold him! Chelle is an incredibly compassionate and patient woman. I love how she sees him for the man he is, not who he sees as himself. And the girls are wonderful too. This has to be my favorite of this series, it's passion and understanding is first and foremost with a love story you can't beat.

Then to make the story even better, St James picks incredible narrators. Ava Lucas voices Chelle, giving her the "mom" tone which I think is hilarious as anyone who hears it responds! She gives her an understanding and passion that is perfectly matched for Chelle's personality and kept me falling in love. Jason Clarke, from 4 years old to 30, gives a performance that is so good, you can't help but have so many feelings. Your heart will ache, and then fill with love. These two make an incredible team and could not be better cast for this story.

Emotional Rollercoaster!!

I believe that I have a thing for Broken and Damaged Alpha men!!! As heart breaking as Blood and Bones: Shade was at times, it was also beautiful to see how far Shade grows in this book. (**pay attention to trigger warnings**) I love the Age gap trope and especially the older woman younger man. All of the questions that Chelle has are something any of us would have! And oh the humor, there are several scenes that had me laughing out loud hysterically!!! This has definitely become a favorite book for me. I love this couple!!! Not to mention Ava Lucas and Jason Clarke..... they're unbelievable!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤

Shade

I'm so glad you addressed this issue in one of your books. Although it is extremely difficult to hear such topics, more people need to be aware of all the horrors of Sex Trafficking. Evil exists in this world.

Amazing Series

This series follows the lives of a reborn MC. Each has a secret, but Shade may have the darkest to overcome. Because of a very brutal childhood this man is a survivor and loves deeply. I do not recommend this particular story for those who have human trafficking triggers. It is a very brutal story that has you cheering when happiness is found.

Excellent Story Excellent Narration.

Blood & Bones Shade by Jeanne St. James book 6 of her Blood Fury MC is a must have. I was completely hooked from beginning to the end I actually listened to it twice before I did this review because I loved it so much. Shade will take you on an emotional journey.This writer is gifted with her ability to pull you into her stories . This book is worth your time I wholeheartedly recommend this, you are going to love it . Ava Lucas and Jason Clarke did an incredible job of narrating this book and bringing life to the characters. I feel like I want to give you all the spoilers and tell you everything that happens but then it wouldn't be as much fun as you listening to it yourself.

Heart wrenching.

This was an awesome read. I couldn’t stop. The content is very sad in places and I cried frequently. The love that grows between Chelle and Shade is epic. Read this you’ll be glad you did

such an emotional story that was hard to read 😢

took the opportunity to read Shade again and using audible to create the journey. This one however was hard based on the story. Well done to the narrators as I was hit hard all my emotions of being sad, angry and just heartbroken from the story. so thankful it had a HEA.
