The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart

 Liliana Hart
The Darkest Corner
Gravediggers, Book 1
May 23, 2017


New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart's first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.

The Gravediggers aren't exactly what they seem. They're the most elite of the world's fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they've been betrayed by the countries they've died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise...

Deacon Tucker is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he's alive, and he'll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God's sake, don't ever fall in love. That's a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can't be brought back from.

Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Deacon Tucker ended up in her funeral home, but she'll eat her hat if he's only a funeral home assistant. Deacon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.

Deacon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what's known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist's dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.

My Review

I'm somewhere between 4 and 5 stars on this. I want to say it felt a little slow at times, I'm not sure if that is accurate as there was always something relevant to the plot happening. I think it's more that some scenes seemed to be purely either about the developing relationship between Tess and Deacon or they were about the suspense/intrigue part of the plot. And whilst the story flowed smoothly the two parts didn't seem to be blended together. Perhaps it was that the The chemistry between Tess and Deacon was not only believable, but also extremely hot. They were both interesting and very likeable characters and felt very 'real' and I totally bought into their relationship. The author did a good job of providing their back stories without it feeling forced. I felt that perhaps there was a little too much about Tess's mother and the problems she caused. This detracted from the main story a little bit and probably is what made it feel a little slow at times. However I did really enjoy the book, the writing is excellent quality, the characters and plot have been very well thought through and whilst the suspense part was very well written it was the scenes between Tess and Deacon that really made the book. I definitely want to read the rest of this series and can't wait to find out what happens to the other Gravediggers.
