Publisher's Summary

He's empty, inhuman, dishonest, and cruel. She's never wanted anyone more. Sydney has lived in fear for eight years after freelance assassin, Merc, failed to rescue her from a cult-like militia group. Left in the hands of a sadistic man, she did whatever it took to survive. But Merc's last words gave her hope. Hope he'd be back to finish the job. After Merc is betrayed by her father, Sydney becomes his target. He wields sex, drugs, lies, and love like weapons. Merc knows just what to do with a fearful girl like Sydney. He's in control. He's always in control. But Sydney Channing is not what she appears. And Merc's only redeeming act - the very one that made Sydney's life a living hell - might just be his worst mistake yet. Warning: Meet Me in the Dark is a standalone non-traditional dark captive romantic suspense. It is not intended for sensitive listeners.

5 Meet Me in the Dark Stars

Ok first…what did I just listen to?? It was so awesome and had me on the edge of my seat, I was like this guys is messed up…this chick needs something…help, love, a therapist?

I knew going in it was going to be different, because well it’s a JA Huss book. And that I was going to be one scratching my head and two enthralled to the very end and both were true.

The mind control stuff, just saying kind of freaks me out. I know it can happen and all that but I don’t know I might be one of those people who would like to believe it’s a myth or let me live on cloud 9.. Ok reality can suck sometime so of course I know it’s real but dang.. shudders..

Sydney this girl, I want to hug her. She has known nothing but hurt most of her life. I can’t even wrap my head around all she went through. But I think what I liked was she might have seemed *weak* she was far from it both in mind and body. Think about all she went through that would have broken a normal person. And she came out still standing.

Merc, ok this dude was scary, maybe even a little crazy too. I was like this guy needs love in his life, chill him out a little bit. Because he seriously was like SCARY.. But he too was conditioned, doing what he thought was right. And it took this girl, this woman to make him see things in a different way.

I think these two together will shock people sure but keep reading is what I say. It all unfolds in such a manor you will be like ahhh I get it now.

And the narration.. hot damn it was perfect they did a phenomenal job bring this book to life before my eyes seriously, I was like hubby you have to listen to this or check this out. I have never done that before.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

You’ll Need A Flashlight To Get Through This Dark

On the cover of this book, it says a dark suspense, and that's what it is and it's not an understatement! The story centers around Sydney and Merc, they first meet up when Sydney is seventeen, begging Merc to save her from bad guy boyfriend Garrett, but Merc is no hero and after roughing her up, he serves her up to Garrett on a silver platter, but he leaves an ominous message with her that he will be back, when she least expects it to finish her off.

Several years later, engaged to be married to a man named Brett, happiness is within her reach, but a feeling of dread overcomes her and she decides to run, unfortunately for her right into Merc’s clutches. Kidnapping her, Merc sets about breaking down Sydney and attempting to extract information from her about Garrett, who disappeared from her life without a trace years ago.

This book is a difficult listen and if you have triggers you’ll want to stay far away from this book, it’s a terrifying tale and there’s extreme violence, degradation, dubious consent, and explicit sexual content, this is more of a thriller/suspense novel but it does have romantic elements and an HEA, but you feel like you’ve been through war to get there!

The dual narration by Troy Duran and Anna Riordan was flawless, what they do really is acting and they both did a wonderful job. The audio production quality was first class and I look forward to listening to more from these narrators!
