Book Review | Our Shadowed Souls

Release Date: October 5th

Genre/Trope: Contemporary Romance/Age-Gap/Trauma/Healing/Forced Proximity/Survival Romance



A terrible man betrayed me, leaving me unable to feel anything but rage.

Angry. Cynical. Afraid to trust again.

Then, I met him.

Rugged, brooding, and full of mysteries. He makes me want to be reckless. I want to trust him. I want him to share his secrets with me.

But I’m broken. Anger and mistrust are all I know. Will I be willing to open my heart again?

For him?


An unfathomable event destroyed me. It left me wallowing in despair. I ran away only for tragedy to strike again.

And it’s all my fault.

I’ve returned home but I’m paralyzed with guilt. Afraid to trust myself.

Then, I met her.

Beautiful, fierce, and full of rage. She drives me crazy and I want her all the same.

But I don’t deserve her. Still, I can’t stay away from her.

So, I keep my secrets in order not to lose her. But the secrets threaten to destroy us.

Will I ever forgive myself for what I’ve done? Will I be worthy again?

For her?

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am simply blown away. I honestly can’t believe that this is only Alessandra’s second book. 

After I read Our Naked Souls, book one in this standalone series, I knew Mignon was going to be one of my favorite characters ever. She’s spunky, has a foul mouth and doesnt mind telling you where to go! Then we meet Foxx, and boy oh boy, did I fall in love with this man. He’s grumpy, stubborn, alpha, handsome and oh so rude. But all of those things about him also make him very attractive and he is now one of my FAVORITE book boyfriends. I mean right up there with Zeus Garro and Carter Cross, my two all time favorite book boyfriends. He is such a babe. When Mignon and Foxx come together? Their chemistry is palpable, steamy, and hot, hot, hot! This story was such an emotional rollercoaster. We dive into some serious topics in this book but reading them dealing with their grief, learning to heal and learning how to forgive themselves was something so special. Alessandra wrote such an amazing book that really captured my soul. I cannot wait to add them to my bookshelf.


PLEASE NOTE: Please read the trigger warning before reading this book!

About the Author:

Hey! I’m Alessandra.

I grew up with the elves and the faeries and I still look for dragons in every land I visit.

I love to write and can’t imagine life without pouring my heart and soul onto a page, physical or digital. I graduated with a degree in psychology, which I didn’t use for long but now helps me write emotionally fulfilling stories.

A few years ago, I met my parents’ neighbor, and within days knew he was the one. We now live in the mountains with our little girl, our dogs Rex and Feyre, and two adorable (albeit loud) cockatiels, Dylan and Rosie.

I love aerial dance, music, and baking. I’m obsessed with the British band Muse, which I force my family to listen to often (but it’s okay because I bake for them all the time). When not writing, I’m enjoying the beauty of our forty-acre wood, bingeing on fantasy movies and TV shows (I’ve watched Shadow and Bone three times!), curling up on the couch with a good book, talking with friends about books, and hanging out with family.
