Desired in Darkness (In Darkness Book Five) by Heather Sunseri

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.

If I hadn't started reading all of Heather Sunseri's series at once, I would have just stayed devoted to this powerful female figure, Brooke Fairfax. So the 5 stars stays, otherwise I'd have to age the Mindspeak characters, change the genders of the rich character and villain and a lot of personality but certainly not story line would be similar.

Great story. Excellent characters. Surprising that all of the books in the series are a good as the first. Don’t often find that in series.

Nightmares Come True Kudos to the author by book Number 5 the author has managed to make sure the characters of Agent Fairfax and Declan are still appealing that I read this book in one setting. This is not to say the first four books were bad they were good but this book is better. The author has managed to keep the characters relevant and just as determined if not more so to solve the case. Sometimes when you reach a book level past the first three books the story becomes repetitive and boring but not in this case the story. Keeping track of the characters from book 1 namely Brooke, Declan, and Dimitri, Mari, Carlos, Michael and the director of the FBI Brooke's father the author has managed to keep these characters in the loop with active parts not just fitting them in were they just might work they actually play significant parts in the story line. I can't wait for the next installment in this series if there is one I just feel like their story still not over.

I hated every interruption that forced me to set this book aside and return to my normal daily activities. This world sucked me in and held me captive. I’ve watched Brooke’s abilities grow with each case she’s investigated. I’ve seen Declan open up more and more about his mysterious past with every detour that’s been thrown in their path. I’ve witnessed this pair fall deeper in love with each secret they’ve revealed to one another. And I have experienced with them each and every trap, misdirection, and ambush Romeo has laid out. Every time I thought I was about to out-think the plot in this story, I was shown just how very wrong I was. Nothing in this book was quite how I expected it to go, and that made it the most exquisite torture to read. More than once I had to stop myself from skipping forward, only to backtrack and reread something I hadn’t paid proper attention to the first time. I am beyond grateful to know that there is at least one more book in this series yet to come. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

Desired in Darkness by Heather Sunseri is the fifth book in the In Darkness series. Brooke Fairfax is engaged to Declan O’Roark, and she is looking forward to a wonderful future with him. The only thing standing in the way of their happily-ever-after is Romeo aka Woodford Clay Harrison. Romeo is proving to be elusive. Brooke’s parents are throwing the couple an engagement party at their home in Virginia. Romeo strikes during the party leaving a dead body and ruined wedding dresses behind. Brooke is determined to catch him while Romeo is set on having Brooke for himself. Declan’s attentions get diverted when his brother arrives along with a woman from Declan’s past who will cause nothing but more grief for the engaged couple. If he diverts his attention to take care of this problem, Declan will not be there to protect Brooke. What will it take to catch Romeo? Desired in Darkness is a fast-paced novel that will have you riveted to the edge of your seat. Readers finally gets answers to the questions we have had since the first book in the series. The revelations will amaze you. It was nice to get to know more about Declan and his past in this installment as well as a little more about Brooke’s relationship with her mother. Desired in Darkness is not a standalone. The books in the In Darkness series need to be read in order. The characters are well-developed, and they continue to evolve in each book. They are very real in this gritty story. I do wish the intimate scenes were not so descriptive and that there were fewer of them (just my personal feelings on the matter). At the end of the book I was left wondering what is going to happen next. I would love to say more, but I do not want to spoil it for you.

Desired in Darkness is another enthralling installment in the epic In Darkness series! I could not put it down. I literally did not stop reading from the moment I started until I reached the end. The insights into Romeo’s mind give just a hint as to how deep his obsession with Brooke goes. I love a story that keeps me guessing instead of knowing what will happen next. Sunseri is a complex and intriguing writer who knows how to keep readers interested and invested in her characters. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the publisher.

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!
