The sensual trilogy of Eva and Clive concludes in the hotly anticipated follow-up to Loving Eva...

It started as a crush. Then a kiss. Then fifteen years of separation, and the agony of not knowing where or how to find Eva, the only girl he’s ever loved.

And when she returns to him it’s like a dream come true. He’ll never let her go.

She’s his beginning. She’s his end. She’s his now, and his forever. Then how did he let it come to this? How did he lose Eva?

He’s got to find her. He’s got to bring Eva back… or go where she’s gone.

Purchase this Book:


4 stars  Killing Eva  is the third and final book in Camillia Hart’s In The Shadows  trilogy.  We finally learn who is the informant and why he/she wants Eva out of S.F. Designs. This is a story of romance, trust, facing your fears, and suspense.  

I enjoyed watching Eva’s and Clive’s relationship become even more cemented.  They continue to have great chemistry and some of those scenes are steamy.  Clive is still very protective and supportive of Eva and occasionally blames himself for things that happen.   He encourages Eva to face her biggest fear.  Eva is still that strong heroine who wants to continue her father’s legacy and not give in to the informant. The author did a good job of addressing how one feels when experiencing a crippling fear and how it remains scary while working through it.  Some of my favorite secondary characters are a little more prominent in this book, which I really liked.  I would love for some of them to get their own books, especially Izzy, Carter, and Ryan.

All of the loose ends are tied up in this book.  The mystery continues throughout Killing Eva until the last 15%.  I will say that I was able to figure out the culprit pretty quickly, but I still enjoyed the book - wanting see what lengths this person would go to, seeing how the everyone figured it out, and learning about why this person was after Eva.  Like Loving Eva, the book is predominantly told from Clive’s and Eva’s POV, but there are some chapters interspersed throughout the that are told from the informant’s POV.  I think that this was wise on the author’s part.  This book didn’t end abruptly as the other two and it was tied up nicely with an epilogue. 

I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
