If Dark Indiscretions was a movie, it would have been a prime contender to pair with an excellent Côtes de Bordeaux. It's bad. I mean, really bad. The only reason I'm not giving this a one star is because it's so bad it trips over into the 'so super-bad it's funny' category and since I'm the sort who enjoys staying awake to watch the cheesy late-night fantasy fair I actually got a kick out of this.
I cringed at the writing. The dialogue just about killed me. The plotting was a disaster. The editing was MIA. The character development was nonexistent. The sex was brutally blunt, brusque even. The POVs and tenses were erratic at best. But it was like a train wreck I just couldn't look away from. Not once did I consider putting it down and not finishing it. I was too busy being amused at it's horridness.
I highlighted a number of examples that I had intended to include here, but I think at this point it might just seem cruel. Instead, I'll just suggest looking up the notes and highlights. And despite my assertion that the book is a rolling disaster, I'd still recommend it to people like me who enjoy a good cheese-fest on occasion, maybe a little WTFery thrown in on the side. This is the book for you.
I liked the idea of this book but have to say that I had some problems with it in reality. The thing for me is that there is no build up, no impact, no time to process. It is all done quite matter-of-factly and almost unemotionally. And I'm saying that for parts of the story that really, really should have had more of an impact.
I will give one example which is not Jennifer's story but is to do with her. She has met her mates - Yey! One of them rejects her because she is a Mystic - Boo! But instead of this building up and finding out how it would affect the trio with one of them so against the idea, this is what happens. He has a temper tantrum, she goes upstairs. The second male gives the first one a dirty look and follows her upstairs. They then have sex (!), first male joins in, everything's fine, let's carry on with the story. Nothing was resolved, no questions answered, just let's have sex and that will sort it.
It's the same throughout the book, even the ending. Now I like a book that is fast paced and doesn't drag but I would still like to have had 'more'. I liked the concept but struggled with the reality.

** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE **
Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed this book. The concept of Mystics and all the other ‘creatures’ is a really interesting concept. I like that instead of using ‘werewolf’, ‘witches’ and other common terms, the author has decided to branch out a create new formulae for these creatures, giving them new histories, powers, personalities and names. I think it shows the author has taken a lot of time, and spent a lot of time on research putting this new ‘world’ together.
There are, however, a few things that you should be aware of. One, there should be a huge WARNING tag on this, because there is a truck load of swearing and explicit sex. The F-bomb drops about every sentence, so if you’re sensitive to that, be warned.
The story is clever and intriguing; it’s rather simply done, but it is easy to follow and kept my attention right the way from start to finish. I read this book in two nights; half one night and half the next.
Jenny, our MC, is a Mystic, which is sort of like a witch but with more interesting background. Mystics are known as brutal and violent and Jenny has her own dark past that no-one truly understands. Throughout the story, we are fed little snippets of her past, when it is relevant to the story, which really works for me. We’re introduced to her daughter, Krista, who has her own secrets.Read more ›
