This is a hard review for me to write. The Broken Trilogy was one of the BEST book series I've ever read. I kept putting it down so I wouldn't finish it so fast. I even read some chapters twice. I loved the writing, the characters, everything. So I was so excited to start another series by this author and seeing that all the reviews were 5 stars reinforced that. But as I read the book, I couldn't believe it had been written by the same author. I kept thinking it would get better and then speculated that perhaps this book was written a long time ago, before the author wrote the Broken novels.

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.

The cover and blurb drew me in but sadly, the story missed the mark. The characters fell flat, the plot was repetitive and the heroine swung from being annoyingly helpless to stupidly brave. If that wasn't bad enough, it seemed everyone she met was instantly obsessed with her. And I mean everyone--the hero, the hero's best friend, the gay friend, the ranch hand, the classmate, the neighbor, the professor, the random passersby, the entire police force and of course, the phsyco killer! Why, you might ask? She is beautiful, which we are told at nauseum! It all got so bad that in the end I found myself rooting for the killer! I did finish the book and while the plot picked up some, it wasn't enough.

I fell in love with J.L. Drake after reading her Broken Trilogy( if you haven’t read it then I highly suggest you do) So I was super excited to read this. I bothered her everyday to see how the writing was going lol. I was not disappointed! I wasn’t able to read the first version but I still loved it.
This book hand me on the edge of my seat, I couldn’t put it down. I was reading anywhere I could. I adored Emily, I felt for her and my heart broke for her. Dealing with her fathers death and the blame she had on her self. Add a stalker to the mix, not fun. I had a girl crush on her bestie, Erin, I need a best friend like her!!
OMG and Seth!! He was everything after he got his s*** together and went after the girl. I loved it, I love him, I love them together! Oh and don’t forget Seth’s sexy partner Garrett and the rest of the Orange PD (except for the snake, I WILL FIND YOU!!)
What I liked most was that you never knew what was going to happen. I was having serious trust issues , I didn’t know who to trust. The more I read the more I started freaking out!! Jodi why do you keep playing with my emotions!! Just when I thought I hand it figured out, BAM!!! Cliffhanger!
If your looking for a suspense romance with sexy cops then one-click this now! And if you don’t then we cant be friends, sorry !!

Happy Reading (and Avery is mine xoxo)

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I never even read the synopsis. I pre ordered it because I loved JL Drake's Broken trilogy. This book was nothing short of fantastic! It sent me right down a thrilling, suspenseful spiral! I kept finding myself with goosebumps, chills down my spine, and that eerie feeling that had me looking over my shoulders even though I was only lying on my bed. The romance in between was enough to send me into shock! Her antagonists are pure perfection. Emily, the heroine, is super brave so I definitely adore her. So many amazing and creepy feels! This story was more than 5 star worthy just as I knew it would be! Book two needs to be here like yesterday!

Romantic Suspense is my top favorite genre, and let me tell you: J.L. Drake NAILED IT with this series. There’s passionate romance, action, suspense, mystery…everything necessary to keep me GLUED to my Kindle, turning the pages in dire need of more. If you’ve yet to read this genre, trust me, J.L. Drake is the author you want to start with. Darkness Lurks is a fantastic and enthralling novel you need to pick up!

“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.
