GOLD SHIMMER is book one in the BLACK SHADOWS duet

I never thought that my plan to crash a masked party to exact a bit of revenge would fall apart so easily. It was a foolproof plan. The absolute best scenario. Moon-and-stars-aligned worthy. No one would suspect I was anyone other than the wealthy, self-absorbed girl I pretended to be. The one who would wreak havoc that night.

Then again, I also didn’t plan on running into a wall of sharp wit and steely determination named Calder. The captivating Navy SEAL might’ve called me by Celeste’s name, but he refused to let me hide my true self from him. His special brand of honest, seductive charm was impossible to resist. He was confident and demanding…and everything I wanted. But the deeper I fell, the higher the stakes rose while playing a role. So I held onto our intense connection for as long as I could, knowing that he would never know me as Cass.

When an unexpected turn of events gives me a second chance to see Calder again, of course the opportunity comes with strings attached. I had no idea how dangerously tangled and deeply knotted those strings would become, but for the one man who gave me the courage to live my life for me again, I’d do just about anything.

Even become someone else.

After finishing Talia and Sebastian’s books in the In the Shadows series, I was so excited to see more from this world, with Cass and Calder getting their own story. I devoured the first book in only a few hours and was left gasping, wanting more! It was sexy, intense and I was left in suspense!

The first chapter takes us back to the masquerade party where Talia crossed paths with Sebastian, but now we see what happened to Cass while Talia was chasing her lead. Cass parties it up, while pretending to be Celeste; a rich girl that she has grown up with, who looks remarkably similar. She dances with a few guys before being swept off her feet by Calder. They have an instant attraction, and he pushes past some of Cass’s boundaries and they explore some of their passion. I liked seeing these scenes to know what happened, and there were a few other moments that were added to give more detail about Cass’s past. She is a good person, that cares for her family, but losing a loved one and a going through a bad experience has made her feel a little broken.

I love Calder! He’s a charming guy, very forward and was confident with his claim on Cass’s body. The moment on the stone bench where Calder worshipped Cass’s body with kisses and caresses was sizzling hot! * fans self * This whole scene played out while Calder was fully clothed too… definitely my favourite scene! I could still see the connection between Cass and Calder was still strong when they meet again four years later. The lust and passion for one another hasn’t faded, and they find it hard to keep their hands off one another.

There was just one thing that I didn’t believe 100% and that was Cass pulling off the second party. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I don’t get how people would believe that, especially family. But I was able to look past it and enjoy the rest of the story.

P.T. Michelle has an easy writing style that I enjoy. Gold Shimmer was told from three perspectives – Cass and Calder, as well as a mystery person – and each one gave more depth to the story and in some cases added more suspense! I have my theories, but I will have to wait and see in the next book! If you enjoyed the first books in the series, you will love Gold Shimmer!
