Deadly Shadows – The Kinncaid Brothers #1 by Jaycee Clark

Review (updated 27/04/18)

This is the first in the Kinncaid Brothers series and it is a great start. I really enjoy series like this where we meet secondary characters who become main characters in later books but also continue to follow the original characters. The Kinncaids are not your archetypal heroes, well maybe with one exception that you will find out about in a later book, but they do follow their family motto – “This I’ll defend” and when the women they love are in danger watch out bad guys because the Kinncaids fight as a family.

Aiden and Jesslyn are great characters who clash from the outset but when they get together sparks fly. Be warned this is an over 18’s series and there are some very hot sex scenes. Mix that in with the danger, the romance, and the family Kinncaid, and you’ve got yourself a series that you will want to re-read again and again.

Having read this series several times I thought I would try it on Audio.  Loved it.  Johanna Parker, who narrates the series does a great job and the characters come to life through her talent. The suspense of the book is captured through the voices and on a couple of occasions the emotions portrayed brought tears to my eyes.  I will definitely be getting the rest of this series on audio as well.


A small, friendly Colorado town, nestled in the breathtaking Rockies, cloaks a malevolence, an evil that stalks women.

Jesslyn Black, a writer, is content living her now-single, childless life. If she keeps to herself, she can’t get hurt. Haunted by the past, Jesslyn never again wants to experience the soul-shredding pain of losing loved ones.

But a murder changes that.

Aiden Kinncaid is running from his own secret loss. As the CEO of Kinncaid Enterprises, he travels to this remote Colorado resort town to oversee the opening of the new Highland Hotel. Though he’s not interested in any kind of relationship, he finds himself drawn to this temperamental, brown-eyed beauty. And her rough-edged attitude is a challenge to him.

But whether or not either sought a relationship—they’ve found one. Aiden wants to protect Jesslyn even if she claims she can take care of herself, and she finds she can’t stop thinking about Aiden, even when he annoys her. Will they get their second chance at love and life before the killer eliminates one problem he doesn’t need?
