Darkness Within

The moment it happens, everything in me changes.

Imagine somebody was able to fit inside of your body. Their arms are the same length as yours. You’re both the same height. Everything is exactly the same. Now imagine that person not being a person at all. That thing inside of you is a shadow. Darkness. A silhouette of you, only living on the inside of your body. It doesn’t have a conscious. It doesn’t have a heart. Nothing within that darkness is remotely human. Its only goal is to take over your body. It fights against your muscles. It tries breaking through the skin. It wants to replace you. That’s what it feels like when the darkness that lives inside me starts trying to get out.
I feel it happening.

The pressure builds. My skin prickles. And the only thing that tames it, getting it back to resting peacefully inside me, is to unleash it. I have to let it wreak havoc, and I quite enjoy the mayhem.

Analeigh Price comes into my life and does the one thing I hate; question me about my past. She can pretend she wants to get to know me all she wants, but she’s not ready for the truth. I won’t become a better person for her, because I am who I am. My wounds are unfixable, so she can’t fix me.

You see, I’m not like everybody else. Oh, no. I’m different. My humanity was stripped from me long ago, and those who are responsible are about to be paid a visit. You’ve never heard a story like mine, because I’m unlike anyone you’ve ever met. I’m no hero. I’m the guy you don’t want to piss off, because once the darkness within me is unleashed, it’ll be too late to get away.

What’s my name? It’s Donovan. Donovan James. But the darkness is taking over, and it’s only good at one thing, so I must go.

WOW...Isabel...WOW!!! This is the first book that I have read by I ...
WOW...Isabel...WOW!!! This is the first book that I have read by Isabel Lucero and she did not disappoint in any way, shape or form. This story has everything that I was looking for to keep me wanting more. It had suspense, drama, a dark side but not to dark, and a hot male lead!! I want more of Donovan!! I really hope there is a second book in the future so we can see what happens to Donovan. Great job Isabel!! I would highly recommend this book to everyone!!

Man...Isabel NEVER disappoints and once again, she has nailed this story. I think what amazes me the most is she has proven she can write different kinds of romance. I highly recommend ANY books by her. With that said, onto the review of the book. This book is on the darker side but not so dark that you question yourself as a human because you are reading something so morbid and enjoying it. It was dark in the form that someone has been through so much pain and suffering that darkness is their only reality. Throughout this book I found myself thinking of all different scenarios and I thought I knew what was going on. Yes...Some things weren't a surprise and I don't think they were meant to be but hold onto your seat because she throws a wrench in there and I LOVED IT!!!!! Thank you Isabel for another FANTASTIC read!!! SLIGHT SPOILERS..... The most awful thing about reading this book is knowing that there are some foster parents out there that are like the ones mentioned in this book. Just knowing that no every child in this situation is having a better childhood than they would if they were with their actual parent(s) just breaks my heart. While reading this I knew Leigh was connected somehow but I just wasn't sure where and so many scenarios played out in my head. Let me tell you....I didn't see it coming. I also questioned Miguel and you will find out about him. This book is a must read. One thing is for sure, I never want to be on Donovan's bad side.
