Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
Jus Accardo has done it again! I am a fan of her Denazen series, and all her characters. Darker Days is amazing and with her snarky characters. This book blew me away and I did devoured it! Now I need the next book!! The cover really is fantastic and Jessie looks strong and confident. The two colours on each side really represent the two sides in her world. I love reading Entangled books!! All the authors have swoon worthy characters and it has full of action and YA Paranormal!
Jessie is like Dez in her Touch series, she kicks butt and she is a very strong character. She is very loyal to her family and friends and wants to even help the mysterious Lukas. Her spunkiness side is what will leave the reader wanting more and throughout the entire book it was putting others first that really made me like this character. Lukas Scott is HOT. He is one of the most swoon-worthy characters, who is adorable and sweet. He is the perfect gentlemen and he does take charge through some of the novel. He sure is a mystery though and his story will make you crawl in the book. Lukas is caring, loving and you would always want him. The romance between these two is what makes me happy and it was a little fast but the urgency is understandable. These teens know the limits and to not cross it.
The side characters like Klaire and Kendra and even her dad make important characters and the interactions between all them are all made by special bonds. This is one of the things about Accardo's writing is that she know what friends and family mean to each other. Darker Days is amazing and the writing is strong. Definitely check out this book!!
