USA Today bestselling author Claire Kent continues her emotionally charged story of longing, betrayal, and insatiable desire as two lovers find themselves in a deadly standoff of seduction.
Kelly Watson got involved with mogul Caleb Marshall for all the wrong reasons: namely, to prove that he murdered her father twenty years ago. But Caleb is hotter than hell, the sex is mind-blowing, and Kelly’s afraid that she’s falling for him despite her chilling suspicions. Now, the more time she spends in his arms, the more she risks betraying her identity and losing her heart. The only way out is to discover the truth before Caleb figures out who she really is.
Caleb’s feelings for Kelly are taking him into uncharted territory, replacing his weakness for call girls and one-night stands with a hunger for something real. Still, the ruthless businessman in him can’t resist looking into Kelly’s background. When his investigation suggests that he’s not the only one with something to hide, Caleb is forced to decide if he can trust someone who’s been telling him lies. For the first time, Caleb understands how intimacy can be so tempting—and, in the wrong hands, so dangerous.
After the intriguing start to the Revenge Saga series by Claire Kent, one of my favorite authors, I was quite curious to see what would happen next for Kelly and Caleb and if they would get to the bottom of what really happened. At the start of the book, they're still where they left off--both of them wondering what's going on with the other and Kelly is continuing the charade of really caring for Caleb. Everyone is diving into the discovery of the truth--the REAL truth--of what happened to her father. Kelly is getting closer to an answer, but unfortunately Caleb is looking into who she really is. When the lies come to the surface along with the facts, there's nowhere for either of them to hide anymore. What will happen when they come out the other side?
Darker the Release was a mixture of emotion and intrigue. The first book definitely had the kick start that the series needed, but the second one was more focused on their hanging by a thread love story and sex life. I was hoping for more of a one-two punch to complete the series, and while it wasn't as exciting, it was still relatively satisfying. We got the answers we needed and the story wrapped up in a decent fashion.
