Rain Shadow Book 2 by Tess Oliver Review



Luke ‘Reno’ Barringer knows that the deeper he is sucked into Dreygon Sharpe’s world and the Bedlam MC, the harder it will be to get out alive. He has to go soon, but he won’t leave without Angel, the girl who has taken control of his heart. Luke unwittingly impresses Dreygon with his abilities, and he decides a feigned loyalty to the club is their best chance at freedom. But if the secret he keeps from Angel is discovered before they are free, it will bring everything to a shattering end.

Angel Sharpe knows Luke is keeping something from her, but she also knows that nothing could shake her love for him. She believes that Luke will eventually gain her grandfather’s trust and that she and Luke will leave the compound together. But as the layers of mystery peel away and the truth about Luke is revealed, Angel’s dream unravels and she fears she may lose him forever.


The story of Angel and Luke continues in this fast paced adventure that makes your skin tingle. As a reader, I just love the anticipation of what’s to come and Tess does such an amazing job at setting the stage so to speak. There is a lot of uproar and turmoil in this book, surrounding Dreygon, Angel’s grandfather and the rival MC. Dreygon is slowly losing his sanity and Angel is teetering on the brink of just forgetting everything and running away, her family be damned. Angel struggles with knowing what is right, what is wrong, what she wants out of life. She is a natural healer. She tries her hardest to repair things, not break them like her grandfather. She leans heavily on Luke for guidance, love and support. In fact, they both lean on each other. In their messed up worlds, they found each other and that is the one truth they cling to.

One word I’d use to describe both Angel and Luke is survivor. They both have experienced their own personal hell, yet they still wake up every day and manage to survive, even in the direst of situations. With these terrible circumstances surrounding the club, Angel takes it upon herself. She must survive, and to do that, she needs to be free from her monstrous grandfather. Even though they are certain they belong together, there is a moment when betrayal rears it’s ugly head. What do you do when the man you have put all your hopes and dreams in betrays you with deception? You still cling to the hope, the slight glimmer, because things were not supposed to go that way. Angel and Luke were meant to be together, to get away from the compound and to┬álean on each other.

One thing is for certain in this series, the undying love is addicting. Luke and Angel are one, they have to make it, they just have to!
