He’s empty, inhuman, dishonest, and cruel.

She’s never wanted anyone more.

Sydney has lived in fear for eight years after freelance assassin, Merc, failed to rescue her from a

REVIEW:
How to even begin to tell you how deep my love runs for this book? It was beyond anything I have read in the psychological aspect. It messed with my head completely. I knew Merc was dangerous, deadly; a man you don't want to 'Meet in the Dark'...typically. He has always been an intriguing character for me with the small glimpses we have gotten. Maybe it was his darkness. That mystique of the unknown. Whatever the Case, pun intended, I fell straight down the rabbit hole. Up was down, down was up...Merc and Sydney have to be two of the most complex characters in JA's library to date. They were the perfect match up to go head to head.

I don't want to go into details or recap the book synopsis really. This is a book you MUST go in blind. Just know that it will push your boundaries both emotionally and mentally. It isn't a typical love story BUT it is indeed a story of love, sacrifice and redemption. Of salvation through forgiveness. By and far my favorite book this year! Phenomenal!



  EXCERPT: I think this is it for me. “What?” Case is next to me. I’m in bed with him. I can feel his bare chest up against my feverish back. His arms tighten around me as he repositions. I want to open my eyes and see if we’re in the crow’s nest room or some other room, but I can’t quite do that yet. “Sydney?” I hope we’re in the crow’s nest. And it’s daylight still, so maybe I only lost a few hours? I really like it up here. It feels good to be tall, looking down on things, instead of small, always looking up. It feels like a watchtower. A place where you can see the bad shit coming from a distance and prepare. “Syd,” he says, a little softer now. “I didn’t want to drug you again, but you were hysterical. It was the only way I could calm you down. I won’t do it again, but I need you to help me out here. OK? Can you do that?” Help him out. I bet. I tuck my head into the soft pillow and will myself not to cry. “Just be someone else, you say?” I croak out the words. My mouth feels like it’s filled with cotton. How many times have I been drugged since he’s had me? “But all I’ve ever done is be someone else. I don’t even live in the real world anymore. I can’t imagine any more versions of myself, Case. I have tried so many times. I have lived in my head for days on end. I have refused to see the truth in hopes those memories would just fade away. I have been the good girl, the bad girl, the defiant girl, the sexy girl, the compliant girl. And it gets me nowhere.” I turn my body so I can see his face when I open my eyes. We are in the crow’s nest, and that just makes me sad. Because no matter how nice this place is, he’s still the guy who left me to die. And I don’t know what he’s doing right now. Or why he’s being nice. Or why I’m even still alive. But I know none of that is because he sees me. He doesn’t see me. He says I need to change into someone else. And that’s all they’ve ever told me. Change into someone else. Split me in half, that’s what they’ve done. But maybe it’s not just half. Maybe I’ve been quartered, like an elk when we hunt it down and kill it and then have to carry it back to camp in pieces. “I am not the rabbit.”

Meet Me In The Dark Reveal #GIVEAWAY



Meet Me In The Dark (A Dark Suspense) by J.A. Huss
Publication date: April 15th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Suspense




Synopsis:
Eight years ago, Merric Case—AKA Merc, freelance assassin—was sent to rescue a sixteen year old girl from a Wyoming-based militia group on Christmas Eve. A new life, new friends, and a whole lot of new money came out of that job. But a choice had to be made that night, and the girl he should’ve saved was left behind.

Sydney Channing was collateral damage in more ways than one when the rescue she expected turned into an eight-year nightmare filled with lies, sexual servitude, and mind manipulation. Case’s last threat gave her hope that one day he’d be back—even if it was just to kill her.

And now Merc is back. But he’s not here to save Sydney. His job is to pick through her damaged psyche and find the truth using whatever means necessary. Sex, drugs, lies, and love. Those are his weapons of choice. And when Merric Case takes aim—he never misses the target.

Meet Me In The Dark is a full-length dark suspense novel due to be published on April 15, 2015.

Anchored by Rachael Wade ~ REVIEW











Anchored by Rachael Wade
   
My rating: 5 of 5 stars





anchored1

Anchored was a perfect Hot and Powerful followup to Docked. Tanner had me under his spell the entire time. When you can connect so completely with the domineering lead male, you know you are a goner! His situation was not an easy one, but he tread the dark dangerous waters with confidence and a heart full of love for one feisty woman brave enough to capture it. Anya was broken by the aftermath of his betrayal in Docked. I think that one left all of us in a state of shock. My heart broke right along with hers.

But as the story plays out we learn his motives and the hands forcing him. Forcing him to choose between carrying on the family legacy or his only chance at true happiness. It's a rough, rocky battle for Tanner and Anya. Tanner knows he can't give up what he found in Anya. Anya has to choose to stay and fight, take a chance with her already bruised heart or walk away from everything. Anchored will leave you guessing right up to the end...and it was exactly the way it should be.

Loved this one! Another solid 5 for Rachael!
