Sam repos cars at night to keep a roof over her and her four-year-old son Tyler’s heads. Finding a beaten and nearly dead man in the trunk of a car turns their lives upside down. Daniel Panterro thought he was dead for sure, until a beautiful woman appears out of nowhere and saves him. But the danger isn’t over, and now Sam and Tyler are mixed up in it with him. The drug runners after them will stop at nothing to get what they want. And they want Danny, and now Sam and Tyler, dead.
Sam is a likeable character. She’s a strong, independent woman who will do anything to protect her son. Tyler is an adorable little boy, but his character is much older than his age would imply. He sounds and acts way older than a four year old would. Danny is stuck between a rock and hard place. Everyone thinks he’s a bad guy, and he’s falling for a girl he can’t be with. I liked him. He’s sexy and tough, and he does right by Sam and Tyler. In the beginning of the book, though, he mentions having a hot girlfriend but then she’s never mentioned again. I chalked it up to an editing issue instead of a character flaw. Shiver is an excellent story. It’s exciting, action-packed, suspenseful, and the romance is passionate.
