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.

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!

Where do I begin?

I teetered on whether or not to purchase this book for way longer than is necessary to give up a credit, but ultimately it now part of my library. The reviews intrigued and scared me at the same time, but the book itself messed with me far more. The theme of mind control and helplessness had me searching within myself for ways to press on. These characters are, pardon my language, fucked in the head...all of them. Each and every single one, whether they're prominent or background figures, they're fucked. But I say that with a smile because that's how we all are, hopefully not to their extremes. Just when you think you've completed the overall puzzle in the story, you realize that every event and every person is a piece that you never thought to put together. This review may only be somewhat helpful to you if you're as hesitant as I was, so I'll hush (wink wink) and state it plainly. Click the button, spend the credit, make the purchase. JA Huss always delivers, and she served the hell out of this one.
