Darkest Perception by Shari J. Ryan


Release Date: May 17, 2018

Cover Design: MadHat Books


I was young, innocent, and looking to start my career in psychology. However, it turned out I was in the wrong class, with the wrong professor, at the wrong time. One decision to become an apprentice changed my entire life.

After being left with nothing, including my true identity, money, family, and friends, I was evicted from my apartment. I knew I’d have to run and hide while struggling with starvation, but then a shady job offer became an appealing option in the midst of my desperation.

I was fully aware of the risks involved, but I’m well versed in reading people and assuming their intentions. Therefore, I was confident I wouldn’t end up being that woman who ran into a trap that was decorated with luxurious accommodations and high-class amenities. I also wasn’t the type to reach for bait disguised as a gorgeous man with lust pooling in his eyes.

As it turns out, though … I was wrong about everything—almost everything.

I fell into the rabbit hole where nothing was as it seemed from the outside, and I had no clue I was the puppeteer of it all.

Darkest Perception
Shari J. Ryan

This is the newest release from an author that I’ve been a huge fan of for quite some time now and is an automatic one-click author for me. Some of her past works have been somewhat on the dark side, which is what appeals to me about her writing style the most. This one was dark and suspenseful with a bit of romance on the side, which is just the way I like it!

I loved every second of reading this and given the fact that my career is in the field of psychology, this story appealed to me on a much more personal level than all of this author’s other works, which I loved! Harley/Isabelle is a strong female lead character that I have mad respect for and found myself rooting for from the very beginning and I loved the fact that she was off the charts intelligent and didn’t take any crap from all of the strong alpha males she was surrounded by. Speaking of which, Axel and Everett are both insanely intense and I loved all of the mystery surrounding their situation.

To be honest, I would’ve liked to have a bit more of their back story and maybe even a bit more of the story from their perspective. Don’t get me wrong, there was some perspective provided from Axel’s perspective specifically, but I felt myself wanting so much more. It’s probably just because I quickly became addicted to him and couldn’t get enough, which shows that this author did a great job creating an amazingly complex character that leaves you wanting more! I was blown away by the ending on this one and can honestly say that I did not see that one coming at all! I love when an author is unpredictable and able to spring a surprise like that on me and that made this book that much more enjoyable overall.

I am a huge fan of this author and highly recommend this book to anyone to read. I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next and I plan to read everything she writes!
