Summary

Emily McPhee has struggled to overcome her father's death....

It's not easy, but Emily finally has the life she wants. She's an A student at Orange University and has a comfortable home and a great circle of friends. She's also in love with handsome Orange PD officer Seth Connors. He doesn't seem to return her feelings, though, so she tells herself his friendship is enough.

Jimmy Lasko is a psychopath, and Emily is his greatest obsession....

Lasko knows what he wants - what he deserves - and has the deadly skills and unending patience to get it. What he wants is Emily, and he is watching and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. That time is coming soon; he'll make sure of it.

A sense of unease settles on Emily, but is the danger real or imagined?

When Emily begins hearing noises and suspects someone has been in her house, Seth urges her to get a roommate. But after a search, she realizes a certain attractive cop would be the perfect choice, and Seth moves in.

Seth loves Emily, but fears his feelings might make it difficult to protect her.

In all areas of his life, Seth sees himself as a protector. He's determined to keep Emily safe, but he pushes the captivating blonde away in an attempt to stay objective. However, after her stalker makes a failed attempt to capture her, Seth can no longer deny his feelings.

With help from Seth's police colleagues, he and Emily set out to identify the person hunting her before it's too late. But is it worth the risk to bait the trap with what he wants most?

Books great, narration flat.

I want to start out saying that I am a big fan of J.L. Drake's books. I have read both series. Five stars for the books. They are well worth reading. I was looking forward to getting them on audio, but when I started listening to Darkness Lurks , I was very disappointed in the narrator. She lacks emotion. I could have turned on my Kindle's electronic reading and almost got as much emotion. Someone is stocking the heroine and you would have thought the narrator was telling you what she had for dinner. It had that much felling. I would have given the narrator a one star but I could not do that to the stories themselves, they are great.

CAPTIVATING STORY; PAINFUL NARRATION!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

A new narrator. This narrator is painfully monotone.

What did you like best about this story?

This is the third series by J. L. Drake, and it's just as captivating as the first two--Broken Series and Blackstone Series.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This is one of the most monotone narrations I have ever heard. These books deserve much better narration.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

overall good but narrator monotone

Good book but narrator was not the best. She has a very monotone voice. The girl should sound like a girl. I had to take a break from the book

Very Suspenseful and Creepy

This was an interesting book. I'm not much for suspense, but I was definitely intrigued. I do like reading about stalkers and it was great reading parts from the stalkers pov. It made this book that much creepier and his intentions very ominous.

I did like Tia Sorensen a lot. She made me feel as unsteady and freaked out as the main character. I definitely like her voice. It's well worth it listening to this book in audio.

Emily is a very dumb main character. I didn't like any of the decisions she made. I hate when the main character does dumb things when she's in danger. Like deliberately doing things that can get her kidnapped or killed. I was also a little annoyed with her relationship with her roommate Seth, who is a cop and has feelings for Emily. They both acted childish in this relationship, but Seth really cared about Emily and made it his mission to protect her.

I will probably continue with this series because I obviously need to know what will happen next. It is very suspenseful and has lots of creepy scenes.

Could not finish

At first, I checked to make sure I wasn't listening to the Text-to-Speech feature. I may read the book at a later date. But I will always avoid this narrator. No expression in her voice at all.

Wow so good

I’m a huge fan of the broken trilogy. I have read it over 10 times. It my favorite trilogy to date.

As I was listening to this book there were some similar things I noted to that trilogy and this story line is so good. I can’t wait to listen to the next two books.

I believe there are two characters tied in from the broken trilogy in this book. It took me a little while to make the connection. But I was excited when I figured it out.

The only thing I would change is the narrator. She is flat and dry and her voice doesn’t change. I am not sure I will listen to any other books if she the narrator after I listen to this series. It is painful at times but the story line is so good that I am pushing through.

On to the next one.......

Very Bad Narrated

I listened to whole Broken trilogy from J.L. Drake and absolutely loved. I decided to give a chance to this book and I can't tell I enjoy it. I finished it since I bought it but this book was so far the worse book I ever listened. The narration is very poor, she sounds tired and doesn't give the emotion that we expected from the narration in audio books.
The story also didn't caught me, the book is slow and predictable. I'm not listening to the next books because I have no interested in how this story continues.
