Welcome to Destiny Falls, New York, home of Bomb Squad—an ice hockey team full of rugged military heroes. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has the team captain packing his bags for greener pastures, but saying good-bye to the woman who’d captured his heart is easier said than done…

After being wounded in combat, Brandon Theroux lives every day like it’s his last. He never could have imagined that the sleek mechanics of his prosthetic leg would open so many doors, including minor celebrity status as a fitness model and a well-earned reputation as a rakish playboy. The only door it hasn’t opened is the one to Harper Johnson’s bedroom.

Harper has too much self-respect to join the ranks of Brandon’s “carpe diem” conquests, but when she needs someone to keep the peace in the tavern she owns, Brandon offers his help—as long as she agrees to a very tempting trade.

But when a family tragedy lures him back home, he finds his one true passion has been there all along. With Sybil, he can explore his greatest potential—and allow her to discover a whole new level of ecstasy. But will a long-buried secret threaten to tear them apart?

Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Have you ever experienced this? You read a book, but after you ended it you aren’t really sure if you think it’s good. You know it’s not bad, but is it actually good?

I have exactly that problem with Darker Than Desire. I’m not really sure if I liked it. It was nicely written and the characters were okay. Also the story was good, but pretty dark.

I have not one bad thing to say about this book. It’s just that… well, it didn’t made me want to read another one. I just wasn’t hooked to this book and characters.

And due to that problem I’m not really sure what to say in this review, so I will just say this: If you like contemporary (with a dark story), go for it. If you don’t, leave it be.
