Sexy, Suspensefull, Spellbinding, and a whole bunch of other 's' words!! 5 stars all the way! Full review featured on blog.
This is typical of what I have come to expect from Cynthia Eden, well written story, very relatable characters and HOT sex. This book had it all, a very good read.
If you loved her Deadly series you are going to love Killer Instinct series. Cynthia Eden has a way to twist and turn readers as she pulls the readers into the dark minds of serial killers. The author keeps readers on their edge of their seats even when they already know the outcome of the story she keep the readers hooked to ever single word. Cynthia Edens romantic suspense novels are always the hunter vs the hunted. The game of wits is what keeps mystery readers hook and romance reads love how the relationship between the leads with their combustible passion that consumes them while hunting down the killer(s) Even though you can tell who is the murders who are the hero's in this story you wonder if at some point it might twist the other way and the hero becomes the killer. The dark mind of serial killers vs the dark mind of the true blue FBI agents who hunt them. Eden paints are dark world that consumes the hero's but is able to pull the hero from dark to light in moments of passion, trust and enlightenment. I have read many books by Cynthia Eden and not one has ever been disappointing. I love her books that keep me surprise until the very end of the story. After The Dark doesn't keep anything a secret. It is all laid out in every single perfect scene. Advance Copy from Netgalley.
Samantha Dark was once one of the most respected and decorated profilers the FBI ever had, until the serial killer she was hunting turned out to be her own lover. Humiliated and disgraced, Samantha left the Bureau under a dark cloud and left D/C/ behind for small town Alabama. But now she’s been reluctantly been called back into the game when a familiar predator begins killing again. For Samantha to catch him, she’ll need the help of her former partner, Blake Gamble. Blake is only yo willing to help Samantha, he believes her dismissal from the Bureau was unfair and wants her back by his side as his partner….and more. Samantha, however, is understandably reluctant to trust any man again. This is a really exciting start to a new series, with a strong, conflicted female heroine
