Editorial Reviews


Praise for IN THE DARK:

"Monica Murphy's In the Dark captured the feeling of being young and how it felt to have a summer romance that was suddenly so much more. It was spectacular."-Jessica Libby

"Hop on this rollercoaster and although it moves at a lightening pace it is still enjoyable to go through the angsty emotional journey with Gabe and Lucy !!"-Amie

"Lucy and Gabe's story was so much fun to experience. The chemistry between them is vibrant and commanding." -Dirty Birdie Book Blog

"Solid Summer Fling to Love Story with great characters." -Bound by Books

"Laughter, sexiness, a few rough times to test the relationship...these all equaled a book that I had eagerly been anticipating and for good reason. I can't wait for the next book in this series...I'm expecting a rough yet fun ride." -FMR Book Grind

"The pull between the two of them is amazing. I could almost feel the heat through my e-reader and I was so glad I had a glass of cold water near by to help." -Confessions of a YA/NA Book Addict

"A bit of laughter, with a mix of a love connection (opposites tend to attract) with a side of secrets and drama make Gabe and Lucy's story refreshing." -Babbling Chatter Reads

The premise of this series is incredibly fun. Three wealthy, attractive playboys who are all best friends are going to have their feet knocked right out from beneath them by a little thing called love. The first book was awesome (I loved Shep!!) so I was desperately waiting for In the Dark - Gabe and Lucy's story. I was slightly worried that I would not like it as much as I did Fair Game. But I was wrong. I LOVED Gabe. He constantly surprised me and his romance with Lucy made me smile.

Every summer, Gabe is required to spend time with his family. He usually endures the time drinking and sleeping his way through the local female population - taking nothing seriously because his life is already planned for him. He will work in the family business. He will marry the appropriate woman and not only will she be 'perfect' but she will also bring some sort of beneficial social or business connection for the Walker family. The idea of it all makes he miserable.

So when Gabe starts spying on the hottie who lives in the house beside their vacation home, he just thinks it will be another fling. He has no clue that his heart has found his mate and there will be no other choice but to surrender to it.

Lucy is the girl next door and she is nothing like Gabe assumed she is. Funny and kind - you instantly like her. Plus she doesn't fall over herself to get Gabe's attention even though her heart pounds in her chest whenever he is near. As their romance blooms, you're quickly enchanted by the couple. You are quickly caught up in their sexual chemistry and passion. It is intense and exciting.

But both Gabe and Lucy have secrets hanging over their heads.

I fell in love w/ Monica's work from One Week Girlfriend and I've been a fan since. Not going to go into any synopsis over storyline, but I just wanted to say that Monica knows how to deliver a book so well written. What I love is when an author can grab your attention and keep you there. This is the perfect amount of everything. The sex is over the top sensual, but not page after page. There's a story to be told and it a very good story. Sit back in your comfy reading spot and enjoy an escape from everyday reality. Looking forward to Tristan's story. I know it's going to be good. FYI - I'm bad, but I read out of order. I couldn't put book 2 down to start w/ book 1 but it didn't ruin anything. Half way through w/ Fair Game and needless to say I'm not accomplishing anything around me house. That book too will get a 5 star once I'm done.

Yay and angsty , dual POV read !! One of my favorite kinds. I will admit I did not read Fair Game YET , but I definitely will now !! This book could almost be divided into 2 parts , the first almost 50% is the summer fling , the let loose we will never see each other again so we can lie and act out of character !! The next 50% is the oh crap is that really you , weeks later , same school , still harbouring feelings and what the heck do we do about it !! I have to say the first half moved a little slow for me. I enjoyed their interactions and getting their stories BUT I was kind of impatient for what came next. You already now that if or when they get together their families will cause some kind of issues. Gabe's family was the rich type , wanting more for him , the proper girl , the business merger. Lucy's mom was a tad overprotective assuming Lucy would never be with a guy because it was dangerous and so Lucy lived in fear of having sex. So we are set up to look forward to the angst and drama of Lucy's lies and Gabe's family drama !!

Gabe pervs on Lucy for quite some time that summer before he builds up the courage to go talk to her. I guess if you had known Gabe from Fair Game you would know this was totally unlike him. The one and done rule , the girls throwing themselves at him and his friends. He assumes Lucy is on summer vacation , coming from money like him yet that is not her story. We know her story and we watch her spin the web of lies to protect herself from a let down. After weeks of spending time and forming this amazing bond they decide to take things to another level , as kind of their goodbye. It was super hot yet super sad to know this was the end of the road for their magical summer.

I won't lie, I wasn't the biggest fan of this book. To be honest, I didn't even plan on finishing it at all. I put it down months ago because I just couldn't connect with it and found myself skimming through most of it. Then I picked up the third book in this series and loved it and it made me want to go back and finish this one. I will say that once the book got to the college setting (first part takes place during summer vacation) I started to like it more. I still wasn't able to connect with it like I did books 1 and 3 but I was able to finish.

I can say that even though I wasn't the biggest fan of this book it's not a bad book. The writing is on point and I do love the world that Monica Murphy has created. Just for some reason I'm not really connecting with Gabe or Lucy.
