Review: In The Dark

In The Dark In The Dark by Lila Rose
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In The Dark
by Lila Rose

In the Dark, by Lila Rose is her first book in the PNR, Fantasy genre. I like many others have been reading this genre for a decade or more.

Where to begin, Amazing unique cover!

In the beginning I was so excited to start, as the pages went by I was starting to see similarities I have read before over the years in PNR.

In the dark has a good story line, and strong characters tho I have to be honest they felt very close to home with some of my favorite series.

I know over the decade reading PNR that we all come across some similarities but this was like “Wow! I’ve read this before somewhere else” this same saying I kept saying over and over and over through the majority of the book.

It took me over more than 3 weeks to finish In the Dark, I was suffering from major DejaVu.

By the time I got into it, there was UN necessary drama/angst right in the middle, I wanted to throat punch Isaac (Grey) and slap Lelia. I really did like the characters, right up till then. They were good! Tho again did I like them because I found them to be like other characters I have previously read in books over the year?

At one stage I felt I was reading YA and then NA then in the last 30% I thought “Sh*t am I reading a Lora Leigh mating heat?” which by the way I LOVE the Breed Series… one of my favs!

I wish I could rate In the Dark higher than 3 but unfortunately I cannot.

Honestly I thought I was reading a little of twilight, bitten, Cat & Bones, and more. I did find myself laughing out loud and at times, I was really enjoying it in places.

I felt the last 20% was rushed and it ended quite quickly, maybe I am fussy I honestly don’t know.

If you know me well and follow the books I have read the majority have been PNR, I adore this genre. Hence the name PNR Book Lover Reviews.

3 Stars

A Good Story for a newbie in the genre, if you haven’t spent years reading everything in fantasy. (Well not everything) tho I have read a lot!

ARC Received for an honest review, please don’t let my review put you of by trying In the Dark.

Remember Book Lovers, I am the chick who loves what you don’t and Dislikes what you Love!

These are my own thoughts and Opinions on In the Dark.

Beau


Novella from The Forever Series


By Brooklyn Taylor


Blog Tour










Synopsis





I am Beau Evans,
God’s gift to women and I damn well know it. I am fearless. I would rather be
working as the homicide detective in Dallas, Texas than anywhere else. I’m the
crazy bastard they call in when no one else wants to go. I’ve seen things that
would cause others to commit themselves to mental hospitals.





I look damn
good; thanks to all the time I spend in the gym and the good genes I was
blessed with. I screw who I want, when I want, how I want. I call the shots and
wouldn’t have it any other way.  I live
for me and no one else. I am my own man and do not answer to anyone but myself.
I live by these rules and no one will change that.





That is what I
had convinced myself of anyway, until I met Piper Dylan. She drives me insane
in every way possible. Everything about her annoys me and turns me on at the
same time.  She has absolutely no
interest in me whatsoever. The more she pulls away and resists me the more I
want her.




My life starts
to become unrecognizable and is spinning out of control. I, Beau Evans am
becoming something I never wanted and always swore I would never become. I
begin fighting for something I am not sure I completely want. Do I walk away
for the second time in my life or decide maybe, just maybe, it’s not all about
me any longer?

Excerpt






Beau fucking Evans
was standing outside a crime scene, crying like a pussy. The other officers on
the scene were staring at me, trying to compute what was happening. Piper and I
were finally on the same page when I got the call on the radio on my way driving
home after my workout. I tried to get to the scene as fast as I could, not
knowing how I was going to deal with the situation I was about to face.  Fellow officers were outside the scene,
securing the block. I got out of my car and ran to the front of the scene to
see what else I could find out. This could not be happening. The only thing I
could think of was seeing her face.


Rodgers walked up to
me, shaking his head with a look of disappointment on his face.


Oh my God, what is he going to tell me?


How could he possibly
tell me she was dead? I get it… I get what Cooper and Kyle were saying now. I
get why McKoy tried to hold on to me like she did. She loved me then the way I
loved Piper now. I couldn’t picture my life without her.


When Rodgers reached me,
he put his hand on my shoulder and I froze. Here it goes… I hoped I could hold
myself together.


“Damn, Evans. This
shit sucks. I can’t believe this happened. We always try to make sure the scene
is cleared before our detectives go in. We thought we had…” He was choking up.
“The victim had already been removed from the scene and they were doing the
investigation. I was doing the normal, collecting as much evidence as I could
while letting them work.”



I swallowed hard,
trying to keep the lump in my throat under control. I was a grown-ass man about
to lose it.
