Publisher's Summary

The first book in the USA Today best-selling series.

Sasha has been different her whole life. She sees things in the shadows that no one else can see. But it isn't until a mishap on the wrong side of town that she meets him.

The Boss.

A powerful, primal being that enforces his own set of rules. Scorching hot and wickedly deadly, he takes what he wants. And he wants her.

As a new world unfolds around her, Sasha discovers that not all secrets stick to the shadows. The Boss has brought out a magic in her that is centuries lost, and greatly needed.

Her struggle isn't just to stay alive. It's also against her desire to flirt with danger.

Warning: 18+ for graphic sexual situations and darker themes. Read the reviews. This audiobook might not be for you. The "vampires" do not follow societal rules or have any love for humans. It shows. While that will be addressed and their culture changed in later audiobooks, be prepared for the ride.

Wonderful

I LOVED this novel and the narrator does a brilliant job. The only problem was that it was too short.

When Sasha Meets Stefan

I feel like this is what would happen if The Vampire Academy Series took a whole bottle of viagra. There is sex every single where.

Sasha is a college student who has always been a bit different. She’s always ignored what she saw in the shadows and wrote herself off as crazy. She finds out just how wrong she was.

Stefan is a broody boss who is too tall and too sexy to be up to anything good. His vampire like kind play with humans like toys (s€x toys) He is inexplicably drawn to Sasha and she to Stefan.

But let me tell you about the real star of the show. It is none other than sprint down the street nudical dudical, punchline to every joke Charles. When he gets a spin-off call me because I am in!

There is action both with and without clothes. There is a mysterious enemy that is swift and deadly. There is more to Sasha than anyone could imagine and Stefan has a big change looming over his head. It all keeps you needing to go to the next book.

This is honestly like you dubbed a porn with YA. But the immaturity makes sense because Charles describes himself as 16 in human years but 34 in his kind’s years. And when you are 16 a handjob is basically the meaning of life.

The narration was good. There were some points when it would switch between characters and it would take me a moment to catch up to who’s point of view I was in.

Overall this was a really fast easy listen that I got a real kick out of.

Be warned there are scenes with dubious consent

So good! 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

I loved this! The characters are quirky and well developed. Of course, it is yummy! 🤤 I love Charles - he is the perfect supporting character. I can’t wait for the next book!!! The narration was great but I do wish we had a male narrator as well.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

A Fun, Unique PNR with lots of Heat!

I absolutely loved this book. Sasha is definitely a quirky character and I loved how the storyline evolved for her. This book was insanely hot, too. There’s so much more to find out in the plot and I’m dying to learn more. The narrator suited the book well. Can’t wait to download the next book! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Fantastic story!

WOW! What a fabulous start of a great New series. Definitely a Sci-fi romance with a great amount of action, adventure, intrigue and mystery. I definitely can’t wait for the next book in this series.
It’s a very interesting and intriguing storyline that leaves me wondering what is going to happen next.
The characters are unique with a great sense of humor. There rapid fire of humor had me laughing out loud and getting strange looks from the people around me.

I was pleasantly surprised that the twist and turns kept me interested. I would have to say that this is a great supernatural storyline.

I always enjoy listening to Victoria Mei, she has a pleasant voice. She gives the right amount of inflection to set the mood of each character. She does amazing voices (both Male and Female). The narrator makes the characters come to life.

Into a great listen

I love K.F story. This is book one in a new series. Just like all her stories. K.F wrote A story with lots of action, love and humor and drama. both characters feel an extremely strong desire pull towards each other,. There is a disturbing scene that happened towards the boyfriend. Can’t say more you need to hear it to understand.

Victoria Mei voice is very smooth, clear and very strong. Her voice will draw you into the story till the end

What happened

I love K.F. Breene books except for this one, this series is horrible I guess I’m a prude but I’m not a fan that she has a boyfriend who isn’t the main character of the book and I didn’t like the scene with the vampires, this is a dark book and I’m just not a fan of those types of books I only purchased it because of the author worse mistake ever

Terrific!

I absolutely love that there are no slow parts to this audiobook. Always something going on. Plus the H/h are wicked cool and perfect together. Action, humor, mystery, paranormal and steamy scenes. PERFECTION! It doesn't hurt to have one of the best narrators around perform the audiobook either ;)

Lots of action

As I listened I forgot it was a book! There was so much well described action that I tuned out the world and was lost in my head. It ended on a cliffhanger so I need to hurry on to book 2! The narrator did a pretty good job with a good range of voices. #audiobookobsessionsreviewer

More, please!!

I listened to the older version of Into the Darkness a few years back, I was so excited to know it has been republished. The storyline is very steamy and engaging, taking a refreshing approach to the vampire lore. The characters are all we-developed and delightful. Honestly, I can't wait for the rest of the series to be published. K.F. Breene is a brilliant storyteller and a talented author; I absolutely love her. The narration by Victoria Mei is fabulous. She does an outstanding job with the characters' voices, emulating their emotions and moods. She is a gifted narrator with a smooth voice and a steady pace. I enjoyed this audiobook from the start to end, and I highly recommend it.

intriguing start to a very dark sexy PNR

First, just a warning for the series; if you don’t like books that contain sex scenes then this isn’t the series for you. This series is aptly named Darkness and does take the reader to some very dark places, so anyone with a sensitive disposition should probably not read it.

Now if that hasn't set you off, let me tell you this series is amazing. Yes a bit Dark, but that is part of the series name. I love the unique take on vampires, and how amazing Sasha is. Definitely a series that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.

Pretty good

Story is interesting, pace is good, characters are good. It’s a little predictable but still good.

The narrator has an annoying valley girl accent that is even more pronounced when conveying annoyance or anger in the character which just makes me laugh. Not my favourite but not the worst I’ve heard.

Great start!

This was an amazing start to the series. It hooked me! I loved Sasha and her quirkiness. She is sassy and very inquisitive. There is so much mystery behind the little snippet in the beginning. I keep waiting for more. The pull between her and Stefan is so intense, it's palpable. Stefan is mysterious and powerful in many ways. I wanted to read so much more about them. I already started on the next one and have the others in my library! That good! Chemistry is off the charts!

The narrator is really good. She has great inflection and does a wonderful job with changing up her voice for each character.

Good book!

This is a great paranormal book! The characters are interesting, the narration is spot in, and it’s just good!

Sasha has felt different her whole life, she sees things that others think she is crazy. She has a boyfriend who has been her life, but he doesn’t understand her either. She has other paranormals after her, wanting her to join them... but she doesn’t know why. She is drawn to Stefan...

Stefan is the boss. He leads a group of paranormals. He is drawn to Sasha, strongly. He is not sure about her, but knows there is something about her. She has power... he should stay away.

Victoria Mei does a great job with this story and all of the characters!

Into the darkness

Sasha has been different her whole life and she sees things that others don't so she keeps this to herself. Otherwise someone will have her locked in a psyche ward. She always feels like someone is watching her. As her boyfriend rushes her from what he feels like is danger, they wind up in a accident. Then Sasha starts to find out how different she really is. When The boss and his crew can't wipe her mind. Or make her forget for longer than a few hours. The narration is fantastic and so easy to listen to. Thanks Audiobook Obsession for the recommendation.

Darkness

Not for me. I was hoping for this one to get me out of my rut but that was not the case. I may have not given it a long enough try but I just couldn't continue to the end, only making it through a few chapters. Maybe it was the narrator and maybe ill give it a try in print later. But for now I have to pass.
I received a code to review and post my own opinions.

🎧 Review for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

I listened to this audible book back in 2015 with a different narrator. Victoria made this story more entertaining. She pulled you into the story, gave the characters life, made the drama, action and steamy scenes more compelling and engaging.

Somewhat YA, somewhat dark paranormal

Into the Darkness was my first experience with K.F. Breene's writing. The story and the writing was a bit too juvenile for my taste but I still liked the humour woven throghout. The paranormal concept seemed interesting but unfortunately there wasn't enough background on the paranormal world the author created for me to hold my interest and go on with the series.

Victoria Mei did a fabulous job with the narration. She definitely added more to the story. I liked her different voices for the characters. Her speech was well paced, clear and understandable. The sound quality was also great.
