I received The Darkest Corner in return for an honest review from the publisher.
Tess had returned to her hometown as a mortician with the anticipation of taking over the local practice but Even Winters sweeps in buying it out from under her. However, she does want to keep her on but she revamped the property and has hired her employees. It's been two years and she now had 5 employees all men who are all well build attractive men, that work as her Gravediggers.
The men are more than just Gravediggers they work for an elite anti-terrorist group that even the president doesn't know about. While on a mission to pick up a new recruit they encounter a house robbery and being that they are good guys they have to step in and save the day but catch some attention from the local police. When they aren't home before Tess wakes up with her van she starts to question who they really are, getting pulled into a dark web of lies, sexy kisses and men willing to risk their lives to save the world.
I love Tess she's so adorable even though she spends her time talking to herself and with dead bodies. Her mother would make me crazy, but I'm glad that she has her best friend Miller when she needs her. I wasn't sure about the Gravediggers but the more we learned about Deacon you can't help loving his tragic back story. He's perfect for her even if she doesn't see it herself.
I've had this one on my wishlist and when it showed up at my door I couldn't wait to dive right in. I honestly didn't know what to expect going into The Darkest Corner so it was a pleasant surprise because I loved it. I think the concept for the Gravediggers is unique and exciting giving them a second chance at life after their prior lives ended. I love all the character and found it easy to connect with Tess she's just a breath of fresh air. I love the steamy sweet chemistry between her and Deacon they just work well together even if he may have been dead at one time. This is my first book by the author but I'm hooked on her beautiful writing style and captivating story telling. I can't wait to dive into the next book and see who's going to get a happy ever after next. Highly recommend The Darkest Corner it's one of the best books I've read this year. Love it!!!!
