I officially have a new book boyfriend and his name is Lazarus!   I purchased this book when it first came out but didn’t get to it right away, then I decided to buy the audiobook.  Which is quickly becoming my favorite way to enjoy books.  I am ready to listen again, I loved it that much!  Max Bellmore was superb.   The Darkest Promise is EVERYTHING!  Funny, exciting, passionate, and I didn’t want it to stop.  Gena’s wit is unsurpassed! “Her pain was so strong, so shrill she could almost understand a man’s suffering when he had a cold.” Yep, that’s in chapter one and I spit coffee when I heard that.  This novel made me laugh so much.  I didn’t think that was possible, especially considering the story revolved around Cameo, the keeper of sorrow.  But laugh I did.  I loved every minute of the story and Lazarus is the dream hero, Arrogant, possessive, protective and loyal, and let's not forget alpha to his very core.  I LOVED him.  He and Cameo were perfect together.   What I can’t wait for now is Viola’s story, I really hope we get that next.  Because she is awesome. I am rating The Darkest Promise 5 Huge Boundless stars, I absolutely loved it.

Gena Showalter’s THE DARKEST PROMISE is an excellent addition to the Lords of the Underworld series. Immortal, Cameo, is possessed by the demon of Misery. Any time she acquires a joyful memory the demon steals it away. Everyone who is around her feels dread, except for, Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual. Lazarus wants Misery, but if she allows herself to be happy, she’ll end up forgetting. This contemporary PNR is suitable for adult audiences. Gena Showalter continues to do a fabulous job with her character development. I’ve always felt bad for Misery. I feel that her and Torin has two of the worst demons. Not that being possessed by any demon would be pleasant. I like that Lazarus is persistent and unaffected by Cameo’s demon. His gift for reading minds is a plus. I like that Misery’s godchildren, Urban and Ever, were in this story. I also, appreciate Viola, keeper of Narcissism, presence. She is good for a laugh. The plot was clever and well executed. There was a lot of action and interesting twists. The Lords of the Underworld series continues to be thrilling and feel original. After thirteen books, I still can’t get enough of this series and look forward to continuing following it. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Review: THE DARKEST PROMISE (Lords of the Underworld) by Gena Showalter Publication Date: June 13, 2017 Genre: Paranormal Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated: 5 Stars I absolutely loved everything about this book! THE DARKEST PROMISE is the thirteenth book in Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series and features Cameo, the keeper of Misery and Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual. I recommend reading the series in order to fully enjoy the series storyline. I wasn't super excited for Cameo's book because I really didn't know much about her from the previous books other than she was the only female LORD. I absolutely LOVED her though! She's everything you want a heroine to be because she's strong, passionate, emotional, and she fights for her man. Lazarus was just perfect for her! I loved their banter and I loved that he was the one to make her smile and laugh. Their chemistry and the romance burned up the pages. Viola, Rathorne and the twins, Ever and Urban added fun to the book and I want more of them! This was definitely a girl power book with all the strong female characters. Viola was there as Cameo's friend and the villains were powerful women as well. This would be a fun book to read with your girlfriends and discuss with some wine one night. THE DARKEST PROMISE is one of my favorite books in the Lords of the Underworld series! I couldn't put it down and I just loved everything about it! I highly recommend this series for paranormal romance lovers. Gena Showalter is one of the Queens of paranormal romance and she always delivers a great love story. *Review copy provided by Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.

Gena did it again :-) If you liked the other Lords of the Underworld books, than you'll of course love the newest book in the series. It's just as dark/funny/and well written as the others. There are a few surprising twists and turns as well. Enjoy.
