Product Description

Emily McPhee is in the clutches of a monster…

Despite the protection of her boyfriend Seth Connors and his colleagues with the Orange Police Department, Emily is imprisoned in a basement by her psychopathic stalker Jimmy Lasko. His bizarre behavior adds to her terror, and a video link forces Seth to witness her captivity, leaving him feeling helpless as he, the OPD, and the FBI search for her.

Freedom isn’t free, and safety is just an illusion…

Though Emily escapes the basement, the threat is far from eliminated. In fact, things she learned while being held by Lasko lead her to believe he isn’t working alone. Lasko is still out there, determined to get her back, and crazier than ever. If he does have a partner, Emily has no idea where the threat might lie or who she can trust.

It’s impossible to live a normal life when family ties become tangled.

Emily is deeply hurt when Seth is reminded that their relationship might endanger her further and he pulls away again. She’s even more frustrated when her globe-trotting mother returns and is charming to everybody…except her own daughter.

When Emily meets Seth’s family, she loves his mom and little sister, isn’t sure what to make of his flirtatious brother—who is also a cop—and finds herself very uneasy around his father, who is a powerful attorney.

Sometimes things seem very clear…until you look more closely.

This is the second book of the darkness series and I was on the edge of my seat with my heart thumping all the way through the book. Darkness lurks ended with a cliffhanger and Darkness Follows picked up right where it left off. The story was driving me crazy with twists, tensions, anxiety, love, mystery, not knowing who to trust and it had my stomach in knots. I was full of emotions while reading including love, hate, anger, pain, sorrow, tears and happiness. I love Emily and Seth and you could feel the chemistry between them throughout the story.
Get to the end and it ends with a cliffhanger and I was like WTF, no way. I can't wait to get my hands on Darkness Falls and see how the story will unfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind just blown 25 January 2016

Holy Mother! What a shocking twist and the turns and omg! I'm just awed at how well this author spins this story! Trust me when you read this book you are gonna gasp in shock! It's just unbelievably twisted and so good!! Just goes to show you how sick and twisted some people really are and also the author touched on yet another real issue in this book mental illness. I'm telling you by putting things like this in her books she's making us all well aware of things like this that people ignore. More people need to pay attention and recognize the signs of mental illness and well psychopaths. There are several things that clue you in. But also the use of drugs and alcohol how alone or mixed together can change a person. There are all kinds of abuse out there that if people really cared to pay attention they could catch it early or just plain catch it to save not just one life but possibly multiple. Therapy is very important even when you think you don't need it. Trauma comes in many forms. Get educated. Save lives anyways I'm absolutely in love with this authors books! I can't wait to see what happens next!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another smash hit! Don't miss these books!!! 2 September 2015

Another hit from Jodi Drake! This is the second book of the Darkness series and let me tell you, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The first book in this trilogy ended with a heck of a cliff hanger and this picked right up there. Great detail and I totally felt the emotions of all the characters. Love Emily and Seth!!! Can't wait for the third and final book. I'm sure it will be awesome! If you haven't read these books, you need to! And her other series as well, Broken Trilogy! The end of this book had a small cliffy but more of a WTH moment!!!! She gives you an answer to the mystery but I was like WHAT?????? Great continuation!

Is it wrong to say I missed Lasko? He made the story so much more entertaining. Seth and Emily drove me nuts in this book! Hopefully, they can keep it together in the next one. I hated seeing Seth so conflicted with everything. I wanted to smack the crap out of Emily for going off on her own. Ahhhhh!!! My stomach is in knots right now!!! I wonder if I will end up back in the basement in the next book? It's about to go down!! I just know it!!

WOW. My mind is just blown away. This was such a heart racing, thrilling story. And OMG, I CAN'T believe how it ended. I'm so thankful I wait until an entire series is released before reading because there is no way I would be able to stop here & not know what happens next. Seth & Emily are so perfect for each other. I just want them to get their HEA. 5+++ STARS!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than the First in the Series; Dark and Suspenseful 9 September 2015
By Turtledog223 - Published on

After being disappointed with the first book in this series, I approached the second with hope and trepidation. This book was much better than the first, mainly because most of the book revolves around the abduction of the main character. When the author is writing about the perpetrator, that is when her writing is best, though very dark.

I was hoping that the characters would evolve and mature after the traumas but that didn't seem to happen that much. I still have a lot of trouble empathizing with Emily who acts as if there isn't a really dangerous psychopath after her or it's just not important enough to not go out and have a good time. Even her character realizes her behavior is immature and selfish but how many times does she have to be abducted and proven wrong to stop acting that way?

I was glad the book got deeper into Seth's family; that was enjoyable to read and help explain his character. I have tried hard to not keep comparing these books to the Broken trilogy as I believe this was written much earlier and it's not fair to do that. In its own right, this book is suspenseful and there is a web of corruption and psychopathy that slowly unfolds and is the best part of the series. Since this one was so much better than the first, I'm counting on the third book to be incredible.
