Publisher's Summary

For years, Brenda Banks was haunted by nightmares hinting at the true identity of her birth mother. That hunger for the truth inspired her to become a reporter, and Brenda refuses to back down when a serial killer targeting Slaughter Creek chooses her to publicize the gruesome crimes. It's a twisted game, one she's certain to lose without the help of FBI Special Agent Nick Blackwood, the man she's loved since high school - and whose tormented past holds the key to catching a killer.

Narrowly surviving childhood with a sadistic father, Nick Blackwood has devoted his life to chasing down criminals, but he's never forgotten the small-town beauty he once loved. But when a murder investigation brings him face-to-face with Brenda Banks, Nick cannot ignore the smoldering fire she rekindles in his troubled soul. Allowing Brenda into his heart means letting down his guard - and that's just what the killer is counting on…

    "Great Story! Kept me Guessing. Great Narration!"

    Wow this was was great story. I loved it. It was darker than the first book in the series, which made it even better. I liked Brenda and Nick they had some great chemistry and a couple of hot and steamy sex scenes.

    The story line and plot were great. This one is about a serial killer named Seven. It was awesome. She was just the right amount of crazy that you kind of liked her, and had empathy at the same time. This story had me guessing all they way through. With a bang of a conclusion. There was so much great dialogue, and the story flowed so nicely it was very easy to follow along. Great writing.

    As for the narration, it was fantastic. Tanya Eby is becoming a favorite of mine. The men sound like men, everyone has their own distinct voice and she reads with emotion. Makes the story even better.

    This was a free read free listen with my KU subscription, what a great deal!
    I totally recommend this series. I am off to the next book! I hope its as good as the first 2 have been.

    "Wow.."
    Any additional comments?

    This was pretty dark but I loved it. I loved Nick and Brenda and it was nice seeing Jake again. Ms. Herron made Arthur Blackwood sooo easy to absolutely hate. He truly was a monster. What he did to Nick and Seven was unbelivable. This was truly a page turner.
    I did feel sorry for Seven but she was just crazy.
    This had some really brutal sex in it but it also had some romantic sex. Seven had the brutal, Nick and Brenda had the romantic.
    So, I'm off to read the next book, Worth Dying For.

    As to the narrator: Fabulous! Ms. Eby is just great with her male and female voices. And her villains sounded evil without sounding silly.

    I got this book and audio free with my KindleUnlimited.

    Story
    ""Too Dark""
    Would you try another book from Rita Herron and/or Tanya Eby?

    I am on a Tanya Eby run of books so this author came up. One reviewer I follow also read it. However, this book did not inspire me to get Jake and Amelia's story #1 & #3 books.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I am not a core mystery listener, so unlike many mystery fans who have strong opinions, I could not put my finger on what this story needed. It had a good outline, and to me, the listen came off just like an outline. It lacked or had too much of certain elements that a good editor should have caught, expounded or eliminated.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    Ms Eby has really developed her deeper males voices now, hence the Eby run of books for me. Catch her on her Tatiana Sokolov reads, wonderful!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    This was NOT a core romance! It had brutal sex scenes for our villain which was part of the mystery, but the romance was just an outline and only for-filled in the last quarter of the book. Telling a reader how much each character longed for their intended does not equal a romance story.
