About the Book:
Former FBI agent Brooke Fairfax is on the verge of starting a new, simpler life with Irish mogul Declan O’Roark. But when tragedy strikes the night of Brooke’s and Declan’s engagement party, Brooke has no choice but to track down Romeo, the serial killer stalking her for years. And Declan vows to help her put an end to the man who desires Brooke so completely, he’s willing to kill to possess her.
When a woman from Declan’s past emerges, promising nothing but grief for the already struggling couple, Declan is faced with a dilemma: take the time to get the troubled woman from his past the help she desperately needs or join the woman he loves in the struggle to stop Romeo before he makes Brooke his next victim. The problem? Declan’s love for Brooke might not be enough to stop Romeo from killing them all.
Author Heather Sunseri went out with a bang with her final novel in the In Darkness series. Desired in Darkness is an intense read that will keep the pages turning until the very end. Sunseri takes her readers on a suspenseful journey with her many twists and turns.
Romeo is even more dangerous and creepier than ever. We finally have our questions answered since the very first book. Who is responsible for the murder of her husband and what really happened the night that he was killed. We also find out why exactly Romeo has targeted Brooke.
This is a super quick read that can be read in sitting. I couldn’t put the book down. The way the book ended was not exactly how I pictured how the series would end. In fact, it’s almost left open for another coming. Maybe we’ll get a spin-off because I feel like there are still some questions that need answering. Who knows. Either way, you know it’s a great suspense series when the author keeps you needing more.
However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind with this book. There are some cursing and drinking. We also see drugs, but it’s never seen as okay. We do see characters having sex, but they are super quick and don’t go into detail. These can easily be skipped over.
Overall, highly recommended!
