Sadly, for me, this book was not enjoyable. Instead of trying to make it last, I ended up skimming through pages to make it end. The characters were not well-developed and I didn't empathize with them. In fact, I found the main character annoying. She is supposed to have deep issues regarding the loss of her father but it's just barely mentioned, nothing enough to make me understand her or care about her. For me, it was too many pages of young adults drinking and not enough of the mystery or action.
At about 70% into the book, it got a little better and the last chapter was the best. with the most action and suspense. I will read the next book and hope the level of action continues to rise and that I will better come to care about the characters. I still anxiously await the next books in the Broken series. I hate to break the perfect 5 star streak but reviews need to be honest to help other readers.
“I’m so scared he’s going to take you from me.”
Anyone with a brain could tell Seth and Emily were both in love with each other, but since Seth always kept Emily at arm’s length, Emily had given up on the hope of having something more with him. Mind you, Seth had his reasons. You see, Emily was being stalked and it seemed like her stalker, a creepy man named Lasko, was always one step ahead of everyone. It’s as if he knew their next preventive move. Anything and everything Seth and the rest of the guys tried to keep Emily safe, did not work. Lasko was always there. Did I mention he was creepy?
Seth tried to not give into his feelings for Emily. He did. He tried. Really. But he also failed, and boy was I happy to see that happen! It only made their relationship that much better. The fear he felt for Emily was beautifully written. There was NO doubt how much he LOVED Emily.
Emily had already gone through SO much in her life. Losing her dad whom she was very close with and then, having to live with her snotty mom (who could NOT care less about Emily), all to have a dangerous man following her every move. Sheesh!! She needed some good in her life. She needed Seth.
“…don’t want to lose you.”
There are a lot of page-turning events in this book that will keep you hooked. At least, they did me. Suffice it to say that this book is a MUST read and one of my favorites for this year. Seriously. I was fully engrossed from beginning to end and had no problem at all envisioning the scenes as they unfolded. J.L. Drake did a wonderful job writing this book. The amount of detail was perfect – enough to allow the reader to see clearly everything unfold, and yet not too much to make me want to skim. Now, okay….you will need to have book 2: Darkness Follows handy because this one ends in quite the cliffhanger… Don’t let the ending stop you. TRUST ME. FIVE STARS!!!
Darkness Lurks focuses on a young woman, Emily, who is finishing college and trying to be independent. She lives in a large house on the beach that her father left her, and her mother is always gone with Doctors Without Borders.
However, Emily is surrounded by friends who really care about her. Especially Seth, who's trying to fight his attraction to her because of his career. In addition to her best friend Erin is always there for her.
The only problem, there's a psycho on the loose stalking her every move. And he's determined to have her for his own.
Emily has no idea who this man is, but he knows everything about her. The only thing holding him back is a mysterious person on the other end of the phone who keeps telling him he'll know when it's time.
Darkness Lurks was a decent read. The story Itself felt very simplistic in its execution of writing, and moved rather slowly. I think J.L. Drake has potential to make the story even more in the rest of the series.
Warning: this ends in a major cliffhanger
