Publisher's 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?

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

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.

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

great beginning but narrator could be better

The narrator is sounds flat for the most part. Not the worse at least I can tell who is speaking.
The relationship is a but weird at first. Story doesn't end at all. The bad guy(s) have her. That's it! Who in the PD is helping?

Love hate

Love the story, HATE the narrator. So dry and dull and robotic. I’m curious who lied to her and said hey you can totally rock it as a narrator because she can’t. She reads it like a librarian during story time but with less will to live. I hope it’s just this story she failed and not all of them.

Storyline is good, but narration is very monotone

Storyline is good, but narration is very monotone. There is no getting into character mode for the narrator, so at times, one can get confused as to which character POV she is reading. No inflection in her voice at all...she is just reading the script.

Disappointed it's a total cliff hanger

Not a bad story but no indication it is a cliff hanger. I will probably never read the rest of the story as I dislike being forced to buy books to finish the story. Very disappointed.
