When I read the blurb I was intrigued, when I read the first chapter she released early, i was hooked, and when I finished the book I was in awe!!
This is definitely not your everyday romance novel if it is one at all. There is sex and maybe a small amount of emotion. It is dark, and it plays on everyone's secret desire for revenge on those that hurt us.
The way Isabel humanizes Donovan has you rooting for him through the entire story, regardless of what he has done. You can't help but want the best for him.
Even more awesome is the fact that this whole book is based out of my hometown! I would think Isabel has lived there she was so spot on with the locations, landmarks, and drive times!!
Love this book and I'm looking forward to it's sequel..
Donovan is a man who is seeking revenge on any and all who turned his life into darkness. Growing up in unfavorable foster homes where anything and everything bad that can happen, happened to him. Now as an adult, he is going after all who did him wrong.
Never feeling comfortable enough to have friends or a girl friend, Donovan has found friendship in a coworker Nick. The only friend he has had. One night while out drinking with Nick and other coworkers, Donovan meets Analeigh. She is trying to do the one thing that Donovan hates...she questions him about his past.
While there are some steamy scenes in this book, that is not the focus. The focus is on revenge and will Donovan get the revenge he so desperately needs to tame the darkness from coming out 24/7.
Isabel Lucero’s Darkness within was gritty and suspenseful with twists and turns you didn’t see coming.
The main character reminded me a lot of Jeff Lindsay’s well known character, Dexter. Like Dexter, Donovan had a traumatic childhood that changed him immensely, leaving him empty and without the ability to really care for another person. Each of them having to be two different people- the “normal” citizen that everyone else sees and the dark passenger within, the one screaming to come out, the side of them they must hide. There were a couple other similarities with another character, but I don’t want to say because I think it gives something away. Similarities aside, I still enjoyed the book.
If you like a dark and intense thriller, then I recommend Darkness Within! 3.5*stars
When I found out that Isabel was writing this type of book, I was so excited to see what she would do. Let me tell you, she did NOT disappoint! I haven't read a lot of dark books, but from the first chapter, I was hooked.
Donovan...oh my! He is so dark and twisted, yet sexy as hell at the same time :) We find out why he is the way he is and what causes that darkness within him. You do not want to get on his bad side, that's for sure. He meets Analeigh and we start to see something change in him. The two of them together were hot as f***.
There were times where I thought one thing and was totally blown away when it was something totally different. That's how you know you are reading a damn good book! The twists?! Isabel knocked it out of the park!!
This a must read that I highly recommend ;)
The twists and turns kept me hitting the next arrow as I devoured each written word and rooted Donovan on. His past haunts him, rides him to seek revenge on the ones who contributed to his broken soul. He accepts this part of himself, wholly. His ability to put his mask on and interact with people who try to manipulate him doesn't keep his dark mission in life at bay. If anything, it fuels his righteous fire.
The Jayden character, is amazing and the darkness both Jayden & Donovan harbor inside is seductive in it's own right. Can't wait to read their story. Now, I'm off to read more of Isabel Lucero's deliciously worded prose.
He's let's me live my life as Donovan James for many years, being ok with only coming to the surface from time to time however I enjoy the time he gets to play.
Darkness within is a dark read with twist and turns told in Donovan's pov, he's a serial killer with a purpose but his list keeps growing.
Donovan has an abused childhood, and a list he intends to complete.
Darkness Within has its hot moments but it's not a romance like I normally read it focuses more on Donovans task, it's a steady paced read and well written.
Unfortunately not enough relationship content for me but those who love more of a read with the crime and suspense dominating the plot will enjoy.
