Title: Where Darkness Lies
Series: Criminals of the Ocean #2
Author: Bella Jewel
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Release Date: December 16, 2014
Anger and pain brought them together, but their passion might just set them free.
Dimitri wants only one thing: revenge. His stepfather, Hendrix, has caused him nothing but pain and heartache. At last Dimitri can take something—someone—important to Hendrix and make him pay: Jess.
Jess is feisty and strong headed. Her past haunts her and connects her to the dangerously dark Dimitri in an unexpected way. Dimitri keeps his secrets locked deep inside, and Jess is drawn to this broken man like no one before.
With little to cling to besides their haunting pasts, both could have been doomed to lives spent raging against the darkness that holds them prisoner. Instead, it seems that as their pain draws them closer together, it is their desire that will set them free.

I really love this series so far! It’s different…the sexy pirates and story I just find fascinating and outside the norm of what is out there currently! Bella’s writing gets better and better with each book…the character development, the story lines…she is one of my go to authors when I need something to get me out of a book funk! 4.5 stars
Enslaved by the Ocean left us with a cliffhanger that set up Dmitri and Jess’s story perfectly, things take off from there. Dmitri is seeking revenge on Hendrix; Dmitri blames Hendrix for his mother’s death and deserting him to be hurt as a teenager. Hendrix is Dmitri’s stepfather. Dmitri kidnaps Jess because he knows Hendrix will come for her, what Dmitri doesn’t expect is to start having feelings for Jess. Dmitri and Jess are both damaged souls, but yet they find a way to touch each other lives. The problem is they have outside forces working against them, Dmitri being consumed by revenge, and their past to overcome.
Loved this one, it was sexy, exciting, dark, and consuming! I definitely recommend you read Enslaved by the Ocean and Where Darkness Lies!
