Plot
(by Goodreads)

What happens when your whole family is scarier than any nightmare and you have no desire to be anything like them? Do you stay and go along with the family plans or do you rebel and have them possibly turn their viciousness on you?

Jennifer Johnston experiences first hand why whispers are spoken in the dark about her species being evil when she was just a century old. What should have been another family dinner spent arguing over why she didn’t want to keep the bloodlines “pure” by being married off to her older brother turned into a nightmare and left her with more than tortured memories.

Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham had been pack mates, best friends, and the other’s mate for as long as they could remember. They were a deadly species all their own but even they feared the Mystics and their overly cruel and barbaric ways, but unforeseen circumstances bring them face to face with not one but a few. Will there lives be in danger or is something great and unexpected awaiting them?

They also have to stay under the radar of the human society that is set out to destroy those they believe to be “Tarnished” and a danger to mankind.

When the three meet long ago secrets are brought to the light. Secrets no one but Jennifer knew. Not only do they have to learn to get along with each other because they are fated, someone is also stalking Jennifer and preforming sinister acts without her being any the wiser.

Jennifer must seek guidance from old acquaintances and form alliances with those she never thought she would. She is met with riddles and startling revelations that she never would have imagined possible.

Will they accept their fates and work together or will old fears destroy their lives? Will Jennifer be able to reclaim what was taken from her right from under her nose?

My Opinion

The book immediately introduces you to its protagonist, Jennifer Johnston. Past and present as well as different events are presented alternately and cleverly. This combination of important and believable characters with all their virtues and flaws and the overall course of events support this fast read. It is a fast read and – you feel the urge to continue reading, to find out what is going to happen next. It is an adult fantasy – comprising a little violence and lust as well as adventure. It is a clever combination, making you want to read the next volume as soon as possible. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads and Amazon plot descriptions. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With this first volume of the Dark Indiscretions series, Shakuita Johnson provides us with a promising start of an erotic fantasy series for adults. A good read for all readers who enjoy fantasy series with an erotic touch as well as with twists and turns in an everyday and sometimes even completely different environment.

This is a book to read again.

I am now looking forward to reading the second book in Shakuita Jonhnson’s Dark Indiscretion series:  Monster Unleashed (Dark Indiscretions, #2)

My questions for you bibliophiles:
What about you?  What did you think about Dark Indiscretions?  Or – if you did not yet read Dark Indiscretions – are you now interested in reading it yourself?

My question for you cinephiles:
If Dark Indiscretions was filmed – who should direct it, who could you imagine as actors?
