Continuing with my backlog of reviews: Darkness of Heart (Painful Deliverance book 2) by Ann Pratley, read September 17-18, 2016.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5 stars  img_3626

As a follow up to Painful Deliverance, Ms. Pratley delivers. This story continued the journey of Alexis, Anthony and Lincoln while giving us a new perspective into the repercussions of Lincoln and Alexis’s relationship: from the POV of Lincoln’s wife Diana! I loved her addition to the story’s dynamic: that of a scorned, powerful woman struggling to come to terms with her husband’s betrayal and her own awakening to her sexual needs and wants.

The obsessive nature of Lincoln was evident through the majority of the book and kept the tension of the story just right, balancing the calm new life Alexis has been building and keeping the reader engaged. By the end of the story, things wrap up nicely with no cliffhangers, but certainly room for more should the author wish to bring us back at a later date.

As of 11/13/16, you can read it FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
