Creeping Beautiful #4
Sometimes I wish it was just him and me.
Sometimes I wish there never was an Indie or a Donovan.
That McKay and I just ran away together when we were young.
Sailed around the world. Climbed mountains. Learned to parachute. Did whatever we wanted and never thought about this place, or the Company and our place in it, ever again.
Sometimes I wish we were broke, and uncomfortable, and stressed out about things like rent, and food, and bald tires.
I wish we had done it differently.
I wish I had listened to Gerald.
I wish I wasn’t thirty-seven years old, filled up to my neck and choking on regrets.
Lovely Darkness is about love, and regrets, and accepting the truth—even if it breaks you. It is the last book in the dark romantic thriller series, Creeping Beautiful, and must be read in order.
My ARC Review:
Trying to guess how Julie’s books are gonna go is an impossibility, you just have no clue, and if you think you do you’ll end up wrong, the woman is an evil genius!! We have come full circle in these books with our host of characters and the Company, but this one book puts the pieces in the puzzle and then makes an additional jigsaw you just didn’t know existed (if that makes sense). You have so many questions about what is going on and yes you get your answers, but you also get answers to questions that you didn’t know you needed to ask?!
Each of the chapters are told from a different viewpoint from a different character – what a brilliant way to add just bits of the puzzle as the whole thing is coming to an end and the slots are being filled, but then it shoots off in another direction that will leave your head spinning as you hang on to your seat for grim death as you’re reading along.
I’ve loved every minute of the Company with all the characters, it’s been an epic journey and I’m glad to have been a part of it.
