I usually like K M Scott's books but I stopped at page 45 just couldn't do it anymore. BORING! I was just flipping pages to find a good part but there wasn't any to find. I also didn't care for the 3rd POV they used in the book. I am now angry with myself because I had pre-ordered/bought all 3 books and didn't like this one so I am scared to look at it. I just know I will not get burned again by being gun ho and purchasing the way I did. Learned my lesson.

I read this book in one day! It is suspenseful and romantic. The excitement starts on the very first page and it is fast paced through to the last page. The characters are amazing. There is no meek, little woman in this story. The hero is handsome, sexy, confident, brave, smart, sensitive and has a good heart. The heroine, like the hero, is brave, smart and has a good heart. Together they are an unbeatable team. The story is well told and held my interest for the entire book!

Persephone is kidnapped by a group of men that despises everything her dad is. The men aren’t friendly to her. Persephone’s dad will do anything to save his daughter. When the police gets stuck, her dad hires Nick. Nick was a FBI agent and he has done a lot of undercover work. Nick will save Persephone. Persephone is a great character! She is strong, determined, passionate, smart and hardworking. Persephone can’t believe what she’s happening to her and she hopes to be rescued soon. She isn’t sure what to think about Nick at the beginning and that’s understandable. She soon realizes that he’s different and she slowly trusts him. Nick is Persephone’s light in this dark time. Nick is also a great character! He’s strong, protective, smart and a little closed off. He’s also patient with Persephone and tries hard to earn her trust. He would do anything to save Persephone. Nick will become very supportive of Persephone’s dreams after saving her. I really liked Persephone and Nick together. It wasn’t rushed and it felt right. In The Darkness is a suspenseful romance. It was even a little dark sometimes. But I won’t have minded more suspense. It felt like the suspense was suddenly over and the focus was then on Project Artemis. I love the idea of Project Artemis and it’s a good name for this series. In The Darkness is an amazing start of this series. I can’t wait for the next (standalone) novel. It sounds great and I’m already intrigued by the main male characters who I’ve met in this novel.

After reading In The Darkness, I was left speechless and with a lot of thoughts running through my head. K.M. Scott is my go to author when I need something a little dark and a whole lot of sexy. When I say dark, I mean you come out of her book world a little bruised in the soul because of what the characters go through and the sacrifices they make. This is a co-written book by a new to me author Anina Collins. Together, these two authors bring a new series that I was sucked into right away. Persephone is one of the strongest heroines I have read in a long time. She is independent and completely down to earth. She has a nursing career and the instincts to help those in need regardless of her background. Before she knows it, the unexpected happens and she becomes a prisoner of a militia group that have nothing but hatred and anger. When Nick comes into the story, I knew he was the man Persephone needed to survive. His confidence and alpha attitude meant he was going to do what he had too. Then a heartbreaking event shatters me. Just like the characters, I was conflicted of it being horrible and trying to understand it was to free them at the same time. The ending was not expected after what these characters went through. Honestly, the way Nick came out of the rescue mission, you felt a piece of him died behind the walls of the captors. I was unsure of Persephone would be able to lead them both out of the dark. The idea Persephone brings is hopeful and bold. Project Artemis is here and ready to fight the bad and ugly out in the world. I was left a little wounded, but I stayed with the feeling that this book is a start to an amazing series!!!

"In The Darkness" is the first book in the Project Artemis series and all I can say is WOW, this series is starting off with a bang. This book grabbed me from the very first page and kept a hold on me until the last page was turned. The danger and suspense started off right there in chapter one, and had me squirming and holding my breath waiting to see what happened next. Persephone Gilmore the heroine in this book is far from a spoiled little rich girl, she is a nurse, strong, confident, determined and a fighter. She stands tall and proud for the people and the things that she believes in. Nick Hanson is the hero in this book, former FBI, confident, tough, alpha male and also determined. He will do whatever he has to do to protect Persephone, to get her out of danger and home safely. No matter what it takes he will protect her. If you love romance with a side of suspense, danger, drama and passion thrown in then you have to read this book. It is absolutely amazing, with all the feels, and I cannot wait for the next book in this series. Romantic suspense at it's best!!

The premise seems okay, but the execution left a lot to be desired. It felt like a first draft that hadn’t been edited completely.

I like that this story was suspenseful but it also continued the story until the characters had closure.

3.25 stars--IN THE DARKNESS is the first instalment in the contemporary, adult PROJECT ARTEMIS series co-authored by KM Scott and Anina Collins. This is heiress Persephone Gilmore, and mercenary for hire/ former FBI agent Nick Hanson’s story line. NOTE: Due to some of the story line content, there may be some triggers for more sensitive readers. Told from dual third person perspectives (Nick and Persephone) IN THE DARKNESS follows former FBI agent Nick Hanson as he is hired to search for kidnapped heiress Persephone Gilmore. When the FBI pulled back in the hunt for Persephone, our heroine’s father reached out to Nick in an effort to secure his daughter’s freedom from a group known as the National Equality Militia. Nick, having no problem infiltrating the wanna-be gang, sets into motion a plan to rescue Persephone but in doing so loses his heart to the woman with whom he would fall in love. To protect Persephone from her pissant captors, Nick must betray our heroine, destroying her trust in the man hired to bring her home. Nick Hanson’s rescue of Persephone Gilmore comes with the guilt of having to do anything to get the job done. Betraying the woman who had stolen his heart and his soul pushed Nick into a world of self-hatred and loathing for what had to be done. Persephone upon her rescue and return is determined to help women in similar situations by setting up Project Artemis, in the hopes of securing their rescue and freedom from the evil of the world. The relationship between Nick and Persephone is quick to develop as Nick immediately befriends a broken and battered Persephone in the hopes of gaining her trust. Nick’s attraction to Persephone is immediate, and to protect our heroine from her jailers Nick must stake a claim that will destroy her heart. The formation of Project Artemis will bring together eight friends with the ability, power and knowledge to protect and recover women in danger. We are introduced to Nick’s fellow mercenaries, all former members of law enforcement or with the ability to get the job done: Roman Gregory (Army Ranger), Hunter McKay (LA Detective), Gideon Roberts (Navy SEAL), Xavier Martin (IT guru), Julian Cain (Jack of all trades), Marius Grisham (former CIA black ops), and Dax Sturgis (FBI forensics). With only three books on the schedule I do not know if all members of the Team will have their story told. IN THE DARKNESS is a quick read that introduces the background and members of Project Artemis. The language and text are straightforward and uncomplicated; the communication and one-on-one interaction between characters is cut and dry such that I do not recognize it as KM Scott’s otherwise colorful style of writing but perhaps the approach and formulaic writing of Anina Collins. The conflict resolution is quick and easy. The world building leaves out too many details and background information thusly leaving this reader indifferent to an otherwise potentially interesting premise. I am apparently in the minority with my interpretation of the introductory story; perhaps future story lines will push the envelope of suspense, mystery, intrigue and romance with the inclusion of more colorful details and world building concepts.
