by Shakuita L Johnson




Mature audiences only 18+ (Second ed. almost 6K added)

Jennifer's family is scarier than any nightmare. But if she rebels against the family ways, they'll turn their viciousness on her next..

At just a century old, a family dinner gone wrong shows Jennifer Johnston exactly why humans believe Mystics are evil, and the events that follow leave her with more than just a few tortured memories.

Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham are a deadly species all their own as well, but even they fear the Mystics and their barbaric ways. Now, unforeseen circumstances bring them face to face with not one, but a few.

When the three meet, long-hidden secrets are brought to light. Secrets no one but Jennifer knew. But if they can't learn to work together, their apprehensions will destroy their lives.

Fierce women and their fierce men….This is not for the faint of heart. Very explicit scenes (sex, violence, and strong language). If you want cute and sweet, this is not for you. This is a new twist to our paranormal world. There are Mystics that are vampyra, shape shifting hybrids, Dylias that are shape shifting wolves, Hyjias are human-cat like hybrids, and Mooyers that are the humans who know about the paranormal world. We are introduced to Jenny, a badass mystic. In her past she had to do and endure terrible things with her family. She has since moved on and is trying to stay under the radar as Mystics are not known for their kindness. All she wants is to keep her daughter safe and to meet her Nyhiya, her one true love. Things start to go crazy when she and her daughter are both mated to different species other than Mystics. No one is happy, but eventually acceptance is reached. To add to the madness, her past comes back to haunt her. Her daughter, Krista, is kidnapped. Jenny, her mates, and Krista’s mates are going insane trying to save Krista. Everyone’s loyalty is put to the test to see just how far everyone is willing to go to save the ones they love. And now the Mooyers are lurking around…. I read this in one sitting. This is an amazing storyline that just doesn’t stop. The author does not keep you waiting to find out what’s around the next corner. This is an amazing start to a great new series.

The author gave this book to a few people, including myself, for free in exchange for an honest review - without spoilers. Now that the full disclosure has been given, off to the review. This book has literally NO FLUFF. It is straight, to the point, which in turn does not allow for full character development. It should be added, however that you should have some background knowledge into the mythological characters - ie. wolves, witches, vampires, etc. but you need to know that, for example, werewolves have a quick temper. There is a section at the end of the book that defines all of the characteristics of the characters and definitions of unfamiliar terms which was nice, though I still have some difficulty understanding the main character as her background story did not seem fully developed. This book also introduces some characters that don't get fully developed. I am a few chapters into the 2nd book and it does start to tie these characters in together. I would have liked a better flow for things. Some things were choppy, jumping back and forth between characters and also centuries (it is possible that my kindle did not correctly define a change of person/time) and some of the grammar was off, for example, 1600s verbal interactions was not full of swearing like today's culture, as well as slang. The background story was a neat plot which I did enjoy. As an avid reader of most major mythical adult series, I thought some things were just thrown in for the sake of having it in the book (ie swearing and sex scenes), but again, the plot was straight forward without twists, it just keeps moving, instead of stagnating with boring background. There is a thin line between too much and not enough. I would have definitely liked more development of the characters personalities especially when they become mated. I would rate this 3.5 stars

Could not put this book down! Read it all in one setting! Shakuita Johnson does not do your normal garden variety paranormal. She has a whole new selection for you to sink your teeth into! Jenny was trying to live her life as calmly and normally as she could. Her daughter Krista was amazing and comes over to visit, although she was a bit more aggressive as a Mystic then her mother, she balanced it well. Imagine Krista's surprise when she finds her mates or Nyhiya's are two different species. Then when she gets a frantic call from her mom, imagine Jenny's surprise when her mates turn out to be an already mated pair of wolf shifters. Jenny is in trouble and needs help. Can everyone set aside their differences long enough to help this Mystic in distress? When her past comes back to haunt her, everyone must race against time to get one of their own back from a sadistic madman! A must read!!!

This book is about Mystics, Dylias, and Hyjias. Dylias and Hyjias have been warned about Mystics their whole lives, that they are monsters that even the monsters fear. While Dylias and Hyjias may kill, Mystics did it just for fun. Jennifer and her daughter Krista are Mystics. Jennifer is unlike any other Mystic. She only takes sips from people when she has to, to survive. She has taught Krista that just because her kind kills doesn’t mean she has to be like them. So when Krista meets her Nyhiyas(soul mates) and one is a Dylia and one is a Hyjia they are confused at first. It isn’t normal to have more than one mate and even rarer for them to be of a different race. Krista’s Hyhijas lead to her mother finding her Hyhijas as well. Jennifer’s past is coming back to haunt her and now her daughter is endanger because of it. Their mates won’t allow anything to happen to them. Now they must all face Jennifer’s past that has come back and whatever that may bring. I really enjoyed this book. It was very well written and the characters were engaging. I really liked how different Jennifer was from the others from her kind. I also liked that even know Jennifer’s mates weren’t necessarily happy they had a Mystic for a mate at first they still wouldn’t allow anything to happen to her. The world that was created in this book is fantastic. There are so many types of paranormal creatures and they all come together to help each other. I am excited to read the second book in this series. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

****4.5 Stars*** I love the way Shakuita Johnson writes paranormal fantasy/romance. These are not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill characters. She pushes your comfort level, and I loved it. This book is not for everyone, but if you truly enjoy a fascinating spin on the paranormal world, then I highly recommend you read this book.  Jennifer Johnston, a powerful mystic, just wants to lead a quiet ordinary life with her daughter Krista. Not like her mother, Krista is fighting the beast within her. It is a fine line, and her mother is the only one who can keep the beast in its cage. Jennifer's past is coming back to haunt her. She had thought that all those years ago she had eliminated anyone trying to harm her.  There are many complex characters in this story, and their lives start to unravel and I want to see how they all tie together. I am fascinated by all of them and look forward to reading more about them in Monsters Unleashed.

3 ½ of 5 stars Jennifer Johnston is a Mystic, part of a deadly group of supernatural that are considered the boogie men to the other races.  Mates, Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham are the betas of their wolf pack.  Imagine their surprise when they discover they have an additional mate, of a species they were told to stay away from since childhood.  Strange things are happening, and Jennifer is being stalked.  Wondering whether her mates will accept and help her or leave her to fend for herself. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Dark Indiscretions after starting the book.  I’m glad I kept reading because it is an interesting story the further along you get.  I think I was just disturbed by Jennifer’s family in the beginning of the novel.  That being said, I feel the initial story is also very necessary for the rest of the book. Dark Indiscretions demonstrates valuable life lessons, like don’t always believe what you hear.  Additionally, individuals should be judged for themselves and not their race.  I really enjoyed that aspect of the novel. I would recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance.  It is a quick read that is exciting throughout. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Dark Indiscretions by Shakuita Johnson 4 Star An enthralling tale about Mystics (part vampire part shape-shifting witch), Dylia (werewolves), Hyjia (human cat-like hybrids), and oracles. When this combination of parnanormal species joins forces, nothing can stop them. Action and adventure at every turn. This book will keep you enthralled throughout.

Dark Indiscretions is a new twist on Paranormal. Dominating men and fierce women not to be messed with. This book is about a woman named Jenny who struggles to not be like her family. Jennifer is such a strong woman who has been hurt soo much by the people who are supposed to love her. She has a crazy past that you will not believe, a daughter who is barely controlled and men who aren't too happy to be bound with her. Or are they? *wink wink* She keeps her daughter krista safe and unknowing of her past. The truth will bite her in the ass. You have no idea how! Krista goes through some challenges one should never endure. You wont believe what happens! Ahh and the Men, ohhh the men! who doesn't love a love triangle between two men and a woman? Hotx10! Especially since Both Jenny and her daughter have men after their hearts! After you read this book you will be screaming for more! I love the way Shakuita has made a series that is different, but oooh soo good! I cannot wait for the next book to come out! This one kept me drooling and wanting more! If you want something different, this book is for you!

Ok, so truth be told I wasn't sure of this one at first. It was a little confusing at the beginning. You definitely have to be open to anything. Once the story really started to pick up and everyone met the others, it was really a great story. It was different, in a good way. Can't wait for the second one. :)
