    5 Star Night

    As a bodyguard, Jock Bosh has only one job, keep Fiona Madden safe from the bastard responsible for ruining her life. Having spent the past decade on the run, Fiona’s greatest weapon against the men out to destroy her is her survival, but when Jock puts himself in the line of fire, Fiona realizes that there is more at stake than just her life. Darkest Night is full of strong, compelling characters and Fiona and Jock grab reader’s attention and keep them glued to the book as their story unfolds. The romance between these two is a bit unorthodox because of their issues which adds depth to the characters and ensures that readers want to know how everything works out for them as they cheer them on. There is lots of burning chemistry and emotional turbulence throughout and both of these characters capture reader’s hearts from the very beginning. The enemies that face the characters in the second book of the Wired & Dangerous series were introduced in the first book, but if readers haven’t read it, that’s okay because they will be eagerly anticipating their demise in no time. Darkest Night is fast paced and smoothly flows through the pages with lots of thrilling suspense, dangerous enemies and excitement as Jock and his crew get closer to taking out those bad guys and discovering just who that mastermind is. I love the characters of the Wired & Dangerous series as they are part geek and part sexy tough guys that project a vulnerability that can’t be ignored as it makes me feel that they are people I could really get to know. I was completely caught up in Darkest Night from beginning to end and I have to say that I found Amy to be a survivor to be admired and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this thrilling series.

    Pulse Pounding Goodness

    Give me a moment for my pulse to stop racing. Yeesh. I don't know why I didn't expect this going in. I think I felt a little bit nervous because I couldn't exactly remember how the first book in this series unfolded, and I was afraid I might not connect with the second book. That was just silly. Where there is a surly, damaged hero - there you will find my heart. And my heart wrapped its sappy self tightly around Jock and Fiona - no hesitation. I loved this story of two broken people finding safe harbor in each other. There was so much sweetness there. But also? So much suspense, action, drama. And I felt like it was balanced pretty perfectly. There were moments where I felt my mind wander. There was a time where I was pretty sure I had figured out exactly the way this was going to go. Then came twists and turns I didn't see coming and my pulse started racing and my heart seized and holy moly, y'all, that was awesome! I don't know that I would recommend this as a standalone. I suppose that technically it works, but it's going to mean a lot more to you if you read the first book. For instance, I loved catching up with the whole crew, and the introduction of new secondary characters who I hope to see a lot more of (I never could resist a mysterious ginger). In all, Darkest Night was so good! It kept me on my toes, and it made my heart happy. This is a completely solid second book in the series, and I absolutely cannot wait for more!

    Some very heavy topics

    I enjoyed Darkest Night more than the previous book in the series but I would still recommend reading Zero Hour first to have the best experience. Megan Erickson gives some quick summaries of past events to make sure the reader is caught up and those were fine, but when it comes to Jock’s hacker crew you really get a better feel by reading the first book. Though each member of the crew is briefly introduced, there’s a lot of characterization and soul missing from these side characters. That being said, you might not realize what you’re missing if you only read this book. A lot of heavy topics are covered so this isn’t a book for the faint of heart but I felt that Erickson handles them well and gives them the respect they deserve. Fiona was a very strong heroine even though she’s been living in fear for a long time and has pretty much isolated herself in her apartment. She works from home, hardly ever leaves, doesn’t date, and her only companion is her dog. After everything Fiona went through she deserved every bit of peace she can find. My only complaint about Fiona was that when writing her, Erickson often used “she screamed” as a form of dialogue anytime Fiona was upset. The overuse of that made her come across a little screechy in some scenes and didn’t seem to fit with the rest of Fiona’s personality. Considering Fiona’s tragic past, she really needs a hero who can take care of her, make her feel safe, and is willing to do anything to protect her. This makes Jock the perfect match for Fiona and while I never really warmed to his character I felt like he was good for Fiona. Jock is the epitome of the closed off, emotionless, monosyllabic hero; he does grow a bit as he falls for Fiona but overall he was too much a brick wall for me to really connect with. We (and Fiona) don’t really get any backstory on Jock until the very, very end (like last chapters). There are hints here and there but I would have liked some of that to be revealed throughout to help humanize Jock along the way and give me time to understand his motives. Instead it happened so late in the story that I had already settled into how I felt about him. Not every romance hero can be charming or talkative or friendly so I appreciate the variety but it just didn’t work for me. My personal feelings about Jock aside, he and Fiona had great chemistry together and it was when they were interacting that I most liked Jock. He truly feels for Fiona and he’s very aware of making sure he never pushes too hard with her. He knows her past from the beginning and all he wants is to show her what it means to be cared for. Fiona might have overcome her fears a little fast but this is a romance so I don’t expect complete realism. With this stronger addition to the series I look forward to getting Erick’s book next.
