Dark Indiscretions Monster Unleashed By Shakuita Johnson


Blurb



full_size

What would you do if the one fate chose for you vanished into thin air? What would you give up? Who would you become to stay with that person?


Krista Bell finally knows what it’s like to be free. The torture she endured at the hands of her psychotic father have unleashed the monster her mother tried so hard to help her suppress. The only thing she wants to do is be the shadow in the night that everyone is afraid of.


Taser is barely holding it together. He lost Kris once to her father and now he’s losing her to the monster she is becoming. He’s also barely containing his own monster since Krista decided she didn’t need her mates anymore. Nathan is still near but he may not be enough.


Nathan is on the verge of losing not one but both of his mates. One vanished without a trace. The other is avoiding him. He has run out of patience with them both.


But when the monster that Krista has become comes to them with a proposal will they take her up on it and possibly lose themselves or will they try to talk her down and get the beast to put back on her chain?

Excerpt


1625


It had been two months. Two months since she killed her whole family. Two months since she ran and never looked back. Two months of looking over her shoulder. Something was wrong with her. Jennifer Johnston just knew it. She was craving things she had never wanted before, never ever had needed. It was getting harder and harder to resist the silent call, the cravings that started to crawl up her throat to the point of choking her with their mounting intensity. She didn’t know how much longer she could run, how much longer she could say no to these sudden scary and violent urges.


She needed to find someone to talk to, another Mystic perhaps, but she didn’t know who she could trust. She had done something no other Mystic had done before. She wasn’t like the rest of them. She was different. Some may even say defective. She didn’t want to become an inbred freak like the rest of them, but she feared it had been done. The things her uncle had succeeded in doing before she could get away from him, before she had the strength to kill him, may be coming back to haunt her.


She needed to rest for just a little while. That old barn looked like as good a place as any. She would only rest for a second more. As she quickly and quietly made her way to her destination, she heard noises in the distance. What sounded like a tiny cavalry was coming up fast behind her. She tried to duck before she was spotted, but it seemed her luck was still running thin. She braced herself for a possible fight.


“Halt! What business do you have on this land?” a male voice called out.


“I’m just a bit lost. Could you point me in the direction of an inn?” Jenny asked, trying to appear disoriented.


“Lying Mystic scum! We can smell your trickery and deceit from here. Where are the rest of you? What trap is this?” the male demanded.


Shit. Humans she could have easily dealt with, other paranormals not so much. This would be tricky. She counted eight soldiers. They should have brought more.


“I don’t want any trouble. Leave me be and I’ll be on my way,” Jenny tried to reason with the creatures.


“Grab her!” the male demanded.


Awesome! They were going to play try to capture the Mystic. Jenny did something she had never done before. She used her Mystic powers. She called upon all the energy she could muster, which was a whole hell of a lot, and let loose. Damn, something was defiantly changing with her right now, but she didn’t have time to explore it. She heard screams from all eight men. She had overloaded their nervous systems. She could see blood start to seep from any and everywhere possible. It was disgusting.


Not wanting them to suffer more than they were already, Jenny sent a final blast and everything stopped. Not a single heart beat anymore. She had killed them, every last one of them. She didn’t have time to feel bad for the lives she had taken. They left her no choice. The worst part of it all, she thought to herself, was that she should have drained at least one of them dry. She was so fucking hungry! She performed a quick spell to turn the bodies to ash and continued on her way to that damn barn.

ISALOVESBOOKS REVIEW OF DARK INDISCRETIONS 
MY RATING: 4****
GENRE: PARANORMAL/URBAN/ FANTASY
ADULT THEMES.

A copy of this book was gifted by the Author in exchange of an honest review.

This story completely took me by surprise, is not your every day paranormal read, it will sit very well with urban story lovers, it had so much content I really appreciate the author for writing with such fluidity and efficacy. 
I really enjoyed the way the characters were portrayed and how the author from the very first page went straight to the point, right from the start it was action packed. 
Dark Indiscretions was an entertaining story, it was a different style to your usual paranormal read, in this story we see that the human race and the paranormal co-excist, but Jennifer our heroine (a Vampyra Shapeshifting Witch), is not typical of her race, they are normally behaving in a sadistic way, even other species regard them as dangerous,  but she is different from the rest of her race and  she seems to be conscious of her actions and therefore is a constant battle trying to fight her instincts, apart from fighting her inner desires she also has to constantly fight the wishes of her family and this sets the precedent for the events that will follow. There are some sensitive subjects including rape, incest, strong sexual content and some m/m scenes, however, the author in my opinion carried them out very well and they were delivered in an appropriate manner and in line with the story line. As with some sequels, sometimes you tend to feel the ending feels a bit rushed, you can see there are so many pages left and you are not going to get some of the issues resolved, so I am patiently waiting for the sequel.
