“Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.” ~ Madeline L’Engle

Darkness has fallen upon the Sparrow world.
What seemed secure was breached, and what was assumed unattainable is possible.
In this dangerous underground world, we Sparrows took our power by force. As dusk gave way to dark, we Sparrows are once again determined to use any means nec

Twisty and mystifying, Dark, the second book in the Dangerous Web series, continued on with Reid and Lorna’s story. The unexpected twists and turns kept me on the edge of the seat the whole time. My heart ached for the Lorna and my heart broke when she bared the horrific experience that she had buried for so long without ever mentioning it to anyone. Reid was supportive and I loved him for that. More secrets surfaced as the story went on and the shocking cliff hanger left me wanting more. I cann

I love Dark. It's exciting, emotional, and filled with must turn pages to follow Reid and Lorna's journey. Aleatha brought her words to life in the way she told their story.

Dark is the second of the Dangerous Web series and it doesn't disappoint. I laughed, cried, and bonded with Lorna and Reid. Lorna is the magnet that brings their family together keeps made the Sparrow tower a home. I love Lorna and Reid.

My heart! Holy smokes this story is intense!

We learn so much more of Lorna and Mason’s past in this story, and oh man, it is deep and heart wrenching. This story is extremely emotional. My heart cried for Lorna and when Mason found out more about their childhood, I cried for him and his feelings of helplessness and protectiveness.

Reid is incredibly amazing. So compassionate and everything Lorna needs to cope with everything.

Everything is unfolding, the tension is palpable, and crap is about to

The second book of the trilogy was intense and emotional, full of avenge, justice, abuse, betrayal, secrets and lies.
And love❣️❣️❣️

The mission of the four Sparrow ‘brothers’ was to find out the people who kidnapped Aranae and Lorna.

Although both wives had returned home, Lorna was trying to heal and recover with the help of her amazing husband, Reid. The depth of his love for her was beautiful and he would do anything to protect her.

Nobody does it like Aleatha Romig, as the top Sparrow's men race to find out who has infiltrate and broken through an "unbreakable " breach in their system and take the women that keep them from the dark, even the King of Chicago has been brought to his knees Sterling Sparrow. I love how Sterling, Mason, Patrick & Reid work when under pressure.

Reid Murray tries to stay by his wife Lorna side to make her feel safe. The only way she can actual fall asleep after the kidnapping is in her husband arm

My heart completely broke with this book, it's a good thing Aleatha Romig knows how to put it together again.

What happens when you're held captive but you don't remember anything once your safely home again? Do you just go on like it didn't happen, or do you try to get answers no matter what they may reveal?

This review is a little hard for me to do because I don't want to give anything away but I wish I had been warned before going in that there was something that would not sit right with me, a

Dark is as gripping as Dusk from the opening to the end I was hooked! It was such an emotional read. The things Lorna went through while growing up keeps coming back to her. No matter how she tries to forget them and reading them for me was a challenge. However, it's a pivotal scene that will define Lorna as a woman of substance. The kind of woman whom Reid fell in love with and will always be at her side during these trying times. The plot thickens

Aleatha Romig keeps riddling me with anxiety but I loved every second of Dark!! This second book in the Dangerous Web trilogy was deep in dark emotion and of course the ending was an explosive cliff hanger. There was so much more to learn about Lorna in this book. The mystery of the present and the slow unveiling of the past makes for an intense and delicate time for Lorna and Reid. My heart broke at times but I was also proud to see her be strong and resilient.

Dark is the second book in the Dangerous Web series and the second book of Reid and Lorna’s story. This one picks up right where things left off in Dusk, so you must read that first before continuing with Dark.

This one was full of more twists and turns, more of Lorna’s emotional and heartbreaking past. Which her past can be a trigger for some as it features some sensitive subject matter. It completely broke my heart and the fact that she never mentioned it to a soul and has been hiding that for

“… giving in to the dark. I’m telling you it’s a shitty place. Once you give in, its fucking hard to come back.”

This tense mystery is just a percolating time bomb ready to explode. It coils tighter and tighter like a predator snake ready to spring at any moment. All while the Sparrows plot to unleash their wrath against an enemy that dared kidnap and harm Araneae and Lorna in a mistake that left the real target unscathed, and the Sparrow organization reeling fr

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This book continues where book 1 leaves off. For sure you'll want to read the first book. Reid and Lorna are struggling to figure out the mystery behind who took Lorna and where her memories have gone.

Oh Lorna. You sweet, sweet, wonderful woman.

I’ve admired Lorna fiercely through this series. She’s the glue that holds the Sparrow men together. After the trauma of Dusk, she’s home, back in the tower with the delicious Reid to help her recover.

Recovery is hard though and lovely Lorna has to through some tough memories. They were tough on her and very tough to read. Sparrows avenge.

There’s still so much to uncover and I really have no clue how the series will end. The initial conclusions I ha

4.5 stars---DARK is the second instalment in Aleatha Romig’s contemporary, adult DANGEROUS WEB erotic, romantic suspense trilogy set in the author’s Sparrow Webs world. This is Reid Murray and Lorna Pierce-Murray’s continuing story. DARK should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events and cliffhanger of book one DUSK. I recommend reading the other series in the Sparrow Webs World for back story and cohesion, as the current story line premise references things that ...more

I've been Aleatha'd AGAIN!!! What a twisted book! It lives up to the title. This series is everything, and I'm once again in the mood to check out all the books in this universe. Aleatha's writing is intriguing and addictive. She always gets me!

I can’t even with this book. The ending has me scared for what is next but also, I can’t wait to see what happens next. I’m telling you, if you haven’t been Aleatha’d yet you need to get one of her books and read it. Any one. It doesn’t really matter where you start because once you do you will read everything. I bow down to the queen and await my turn to read the final book of this series. I just know that no matter what happens, I will not be prepared but I will love it.
Be prepared for this one. It might seem long on what Lorna discovers what she went through as a child. Scenes will feel cringe worthy, and will have some triggers. I just loved Mason and Reid at the end though. Cliffy will be sure to bet you'll stick around for the last installment.

I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Absolutely brilliant... I really can’t get enough of these characters. The story is gripping and twisted. I have no idea where this story is going and who is responsible for all the events that have happened so far.

What truly comes through is how much each of these men put their woman first. Everything they do is for them. They continually strive to keep them safe and will avenge anyone that threatens them. The powerful relationship between Reid and Lorna is encompassing, is love to have a man l

4.5 Stars / 3.5 Steam Fans

It is hard to talk about this book without giving spoilers to make this brief. We really deep-dived into Lorna's history and childhood, which was very hard to read about. Content warnings for child sexual abuse (in detail), PTSD, survivor's guilt, and other dark, twisted themes.

Overall, my head is still spinning, and I cannot wait to find out how everything ends.

Dark by Aleatha Romig was a twisted web of drama, action, passion and love. This story was such a beautifully layered romantic supense experience. Reid and Lorna was everything.

Lorna has been rescued in bruised, battered and abused condition after the kidnapping. Her mind is fractured. The trauma and the drug has muddied her memory and the past is rearing its ugly head to torture her more. Reid cannot let it happen. As his friends fight to find out who is challenging the Sparrows, he has one who

This is book two in Lorna and Reid's story and it picks up where book one left off. As Lorna navigates her mind's eye and tries to remember the past few weeks, she is having flashes from the past she has forgotten. Some she wanted to forget others she made herself forget. And you wonder why, anyone who went through what she has and came out the other side as a strong, independent woman deserves a future with Reid.

This is the BEST type of romantic suspense! The plot thickens but so does the intensity of this phenomenal story! Just when you think you know - flashbacks to the past rounds it out. And omg the love of Lorna and Reid is perfect! I can’t wait til the last book!

More secrets are revealed and we learn more of Lorna’s horrible past. With what she dealt with I’m surprised she turned out as strong as she is. Reid and Mason find someone from her past and go after him, leading to another doozy of a cliffhanger. Can’t wait to read Dawn.

5 Star Review of Dark (Dangerous Web #2) by Aleatha Romig

Dark is the second book in the latest series Dangerous Web from Aleatha Romig and as the name implies it is darker, more twisted and absolutely captivating, it is the continuation of Reid Murray and Lorna Pierce's story

Reid is struggling with the guilt he feels at being unable to protect Lorna as she continues to struggle with her loss of memory and her recent trauma. I really liked both Reid and Lorna, both separately and especially toge

Shelves: loved-it
Reid and Lorna's story continues in Dark and it is dark and explosive. The Sparrow stories are always gripping and breath grasping to the last word.
Lorna is still reeling from her kidnapping and trying to come to terms with her absent memory. The Sparrow men and women circle her with support and love, trying to make her feel like she will be lifted up and taken care of when the memories soar back to her.
But that ending, I can't fathom a world without him.
