Dark Indiscretions by Shakuita Johnson: Review

Book Blurb:
What happens when your whole family is scarier than any nightmare and you have no desire to be anything like them? Do you stay and go along with the family plans or do you rebel and have them possibly turn their viciousness on you?
Jennifer Johnston experiences first hand why whispers are spoken in the dark about her species’ being evil when she was just a century old. What should have been another family dinner spent arguing over why she didn’t want to keep the bloodlines “pure” by being married off to her older brother turned into a nightmare and left her with more than tortured memories.
Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham had been pack mates, best friends, and the other’s mate for as long as they could remember. They were a deadly species all their own but even they feared the Mystics and their overly cruel and barbaric ways, but unforeseen circumstances bring them face to face with not one but a few. Will there lives be in danger or is something great and unexpected awaiting them?
They also have to stay under the radar of the human society that is set out to destroy those they believe to be “Tarnished” and a danger to mankind.
When the three meet long ago secrets are brought to the light. Secrets no one but Jennifer knew. Not only do they have to learn to get along with each other because they are fated, someone is also stalking Jennifer and preforming sinister acts without her being any the wiser.
Jennifer must seek guidance from old acquaintances and form alliances with those she never thought she would. She is met with riddles and startling revelations that she never would have imagined possible.
Will they accept their fates and work together or will old fears destroy their lives? Will Jennifer be able to reclaim what was taken from her right from under her nose?

My Review:

Dark Indiscretions (Dark Indiscretions, #1)Dark Indiscretions by Shakuita Johnson
My rating: 3 ½ of 5 stars

Jennifer Johnston is a Mystic, part of a deadly group of supernatural that are considered the boogie men to the other races. Mates, Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham are the betas of their wolf pack. Imagine their surprise when they discover they have an additional mate, of a species they were told to stay away from since childhood. Strange things are happening, and Jennifer is being stalked. Wondering whether her mates will accept and help her or leave her to fend for herself.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Dark Indiscretions after starting the book. I’m glad I kept reading because it is an interesting story the further along you get. I think I was just disturbed by Jennifer’s family in the beginning of the novel. That being said, I feel the initial story is also very necessary for the rest of the book.

Dark Indiscretions demonstrates valuable life lessons, like don’t always believe what you hear. Additionally, individuals should be judged for themselves and not their race. I really enjoyed that aspect of the novel.

I would recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance. It is a quick read that is exciting throughout.
