McClouds & Friends is a romance series by Shannon Mckenna with the Behind Closed Doors novel coming first. The books don’t need to be read in order, and each can be read as a standalone’s—this is a perfect series for readers who are not fond of reading books in order.

Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors is the first novel in McClouds &Friends series. The story begins with Seth Mackey, the hero, spying on Raine Cameron because he thinks she is Victor Lazar’s latest mistress. He’s been on the watch for several weeks now and has made it her daily routine. Seth also believes victor, his boss is behind the murder of his half-brother and now lives for revenge.

Raine has always been scared of her shadow since childhood. She has tested a life on the run with her mother, Alix, and she had no support or mentors to look up to. When she was 11 years old, her father’s involvement in her uncle’s business dealings caused his death, and life immediately changed as her mother introduced them into hiding life.

Her mother considered Raine’s beauty as a problem and not something to be proud of. Raine retreats into downplaying her talents with the hope that her mother realizes she’s not a threat and all she wants is love and attention. However, things didn’t work out that way, and she ended up growing scared, lonely, and powerless.

Now she starts to avenge her father’s death, regain her powers, and get herself in-game with her dangerous and powerful uncle. On the other hand, Seth is so deep in the espionage activities of Raine’s murderous uncle. He has his mission after losing his only family member due to his uncle’s unfriendly lifestyle.
In pursuit of her mission, Raine was hired by her uncle and given the house which belonged to his mistress. On the other side, Seth spends most of his time watching and listening to Raine on a spy camera, and he can’t believe it as she gets fascinated by this young lady.

She looks so gorgeous in high-buttoned suits, but Seth has never been the type that loses focus because of a pretty face and curvy body; however, it interferes with his mission this time.

Victor Lazar is keen to notice his distraction with Raine and makes some arrangements for them to meet. The two start developing feelings for each other, and later it comes clear that they’ve got the same goal of bringing Lazar down. They must learn to accept and trust as they play the game of cat and mouse with the villains.

Behind Closed Doors is such a tight and suspenseful book, and McCkenna’s skill in building sexual tension was on another level. The love scenes were so engaging to capture the reader’s attention.

Standing in the Shadows
Standing in The shadows is the second installment in the McClouds & Friends series. The book features Erin and Connor where Erin is the daughter of Ed Riggs, a man who set Connor to die. He still remembers the stay so well when Ed planned him up to be killed at the hands of his friend. He testified against him and got into an accident that left him wounded and took him to a coma for more than a year.

Connor had feelings for Erin since the day he set his eyes on her. He is an ex-FBI and is tough compared to his brothers; he is the voice of reason, the calm voice of the family, and a patient man. Although Erin was seventeen years of age at that time, nothing stopped him, and he vowed to wait for her. Erin’s father was Connors commander, and he was not a man anyone could mess with.

Now he works for his brother’s investigative firm until one day he hears that Erin is in great danger as Novak, the villain in the previous book, is back to get revenge.

Everything changed when Connor beat a man to near death right in front of her and made her dad go to prison. Erin’s life is now full of chaos, and Connor comes back into her life with the bad news that the man who was hunting them is back and seems to stop at nothing until she becomes one of his victims.
Erin has been taking care of herself for some time; she also looks after her depressed mother as her sister is stripping and doing weird things.

Everyone doubts his words and even question his sanity when he breaks the bad news. However, he doesn’t care about them, and the only person he cares for is Erin and is ready to do everything it takes to make her believe. When their enemy Novak has come back, Connor is ready to do everything to keep his lover safe from the murderer with a heart of a predator and very little patience.

Erin has also fallen for Connor since their first meeting, and now having him back into her life is both a good feeling and a distraction. She had been holding secret fantasies about Connor for so long and couldn’t wait to be with him.

She is in the course of getting her family back on track, and her obsession with Connor is threatening her plans. Erin has been applying for jobs and was already hired by a man she knows little about and has never met. She needs a job because of the pilling bills that keep coming day by day. So many things are happening, and all she needs to be is cautious and vigilant. They later fulfill the passion they’ve been having for ten years, but the psychopath who is watching their steps comes up with a different plan.

Their friends turn into enemies, and enemies turn into friends, but now that they understand each other better, all they want is to survive and build a future together. The story is full of action, suspense and will leave the reader craving for more.
The chemistry between Connor and Erin was terrific, and both having a crush on each other, the tension between them kept rising. When Erin finally gets the courage to show what she really wants, Connor shows his passionate way of expressing his desire towards her.
