Book Review: Love's Shadow

Love's Shadow
Goodreads Summary
Branwell D'Angelo . . .
Six years ago, I fell in love with Lucy--my brother's girlfriend. Stupid of me, I know, but sometimes the heart doesn't listen to reason.
Six years, I've lived on the sidelines. Seeing him love her, be with her, bask in her sunshine . . .
I watched her break his heart and then cleaned up the shattered pieces of him she left behind.
She's the one woman I can't have but still the only one my soul wants.
Now she's back in our lives and needs the unique help only us D'Angelos can give.
He's not emotionally strong enough to face her. So he's sending me instead . . .

For her part, when tragedy strikes Lucy Snow on a visit to Italy, she can't bring herself to call any of the D'Angelo brothers for help. There are consequences for falling in love with your ex-boyfriend's brother. But Lucy desperately needs Branwell's paranormal skills and his gift of Sight. And if seeing him will negate at least three years of therapy? Well, it's a price she is willing to pay.

Thrown together in a desperate bid to save an innocent life, Branwell and Lucy struggle against their shared past, only to realize that something even more dangerous is reaching through the weight of time to stalk their every move . . .

Though the second book in the Brothers Maledetti series, Love's Shadow is a full-length, standalone novel.

Oh this book! I absolutely adored the first one in this series, as you can see in my review here. This author, Nichole Van, is so, so talented! I could read her work forever! I went into this novel thinking it couldn't compare to the first one, but boy was I wrong! I might actually love Love's Shadow better than Gladly Beyond. It doesn't hurt that the heroine, Lucy, is a redhead with freckles, either ;). Branwell was a fantastic hero, and I loved reading from his perspective as well as Lucy's. They have complicated history, and I loved how things worked out for them. For your viewing pleasure, I have added a picture of who I think makes a great Branwell, man bun and all! And I may just be looking for excuses to post pictures of Aidan Turner, but that is neither here nor there.

I have yet to find a picture of someone who could be Lucy. Anyways, this second book in the series tells us some more about the Curse that the D'Angelo brothers share. I loved learning more about the brothers' relationship with each other. I don't want to spoil too much, but the ending was pretty perfect and I am excited to read more in the series! Also, I have a new love for green candy. As to the mystery of why, I'll let you read the book to find out! 

A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
