Blog Tour: Darkness Series by K.F. Breene

Novella (191 pages)
New Adult (18 +) Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
Released January 2014

I’d always been different. I saw objects in the night where others saw emptiness. Large, human shaped shadows, fierce yet beautiful, melting into the darkness. I collected secrets like other women collected bells; afraid to fully trust lest my oddities be exposed.

Until I saw him. He’d been gliding down the street, unshakable confidence in every step. It wasn’t just that he was breathtakingly handsome with perfect features. Something about him drew me. Sucked my focus to him and then tugged at my body. As his eyes met mine, I was entrapped.

No one had noticed him. He’d been right there, just beyond the light, but only I had perceived.

I had to know if he was real. Or maybe I really was crazy. And even when my secret box was blasted wide open, dangers hurled at me like throwing knives, I couldn’t stop until I unraveled his true identity.

I just had to know.

“She was fated to live.”
“Then why must you save her?”
“Often Fate is struck down by dumb luck.”

New Adult (18 +) due to sexual content and not for the faint of heart.


The Way I see It
Hold on to your seats y'all this was a wild thrilling ride!! My eyes are bugging out of my head and my chin hurts from all the times my jaw dropped to the floor! This was a super sexy steamy and disturbing read!! Definitely 18+ there were a couple of m/m scenes that seriously shocked my shoes right off! Seriously my shoes came off I was like where did my shoes go? Lol my usual concern with novella length books is connecting with the characters well let me tell you. Sasha is larger than life and her spirit shines through the pages. Breen’s writing is captivating definitely on the brazen side but a delightful read none the less.

From the very first page the action and mystery takes off. Recently I've read books that have left me hanging in the end and that's been a bit disappointing. Into the Darkness did the exact same thing BUT I’m not disappointed AT ALL! In fact I’m pretty dang giddy! Yep, I said it! Giddy!! As the reader we are given some answers and see some foreshadowing just enough to whet our pallets. Sasha is different but quite normal at the same time. She isn't overly anything, she finds herself in situations where she is not in full control of her body and she is drawn to “the Boss” Stefen in a way she cannot describe. There is a magic locked inside of her that will reveal itself but the origin of her power is unknown. I have some speculations but I've yet to see if they are founded. This is action packed from the first page to the last.

The characters were perfect Sasha and Stefen exude chemistry even though their contact was minimal. Stefen pushes to keep Sasha at arms length but just the way she has a pull towards him he feels that same pull towards her. Sasha is strong and brave in a very human way. Stefen is a leader among his people so he has to act a certain way. Sasha has a boyfriend whom she cares for dearly and though I thought their relationship was nice I felt like he was holding her back. Stefen can have his pick of the litter but his mind keeps veering back to a very stubborn and very beautiful human girl. Charles…at first I didn't know what to think of him but then he grew on me the banter he shares with Sasha is classic! I see a true friendship forming like I said I’m hooked and invested in this series I can’t wait to see what happens. 

My Rating

4.0 Car Wreck, Park Shadow, First Kiss, First Love, Pheromones, Alley Rendezvous, Mind Wipe, Letter Opener, Black Smoke, Gold Cage, Marked Lover, Heart Break, Resignation Challenging filled stars!!! If your into paranormal and super sexy scenes then ABSOLUTELY pick this up!!!

Darkness #2
Novella (190 pages)
New Adult (18 +) Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
Released March 21, 2014

Sasha has always known she was different, but now she also knows that the shadow men she’s seen all her life, are real. 
With a life goal of fitting in, Sasha hopes her strange abilities will finally make true friendship a possibility. Unfortunately, her magic doesn’t function like everyone else’s. What she thought would make her belong, sets her apart now more than ever.

Stefan, all but promised to a different woman, has tried to keep his mind on his duties instead of the irresistible and free-spirited human. But when she is threatened, he can’t keep his distance anymore. He realizes he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe, and more importantly, make her his. 

Just when one thing clicks into place, another spirals out of control. Stefan’s clan isn’t the only group that would benefit from an extremely rare type of magic. And their enemies will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Braving the Elements is the second novella in K.F.Breene’s long awaited Darkness series. Sasha’s story is one of discovery, awareness, and understanding, and is jam packed with action, humor, sexual tension, and an overwhelming desire for final acceptance.

The Way I See It 
Yep this is one super addictive series. Sasha has been through quite the ordeal Jared the person she loved is gone she knows its for the best but her heart still aches with his absence. This second installment was more addicting than the first. I had great expectations and it met every single one. I seriously read through the night because this was un-put-a-down-able. Each page had me moving right along and falling more and more in love with all of these wonderful characters. 

B-usy, If Sasha keeps her mind focused on the tasks presented to her she does not feel the pain of her heart so deeply.
R-estricted, Stefen tucks Sasha away and no one is allowed to know her location.
A-spire, going back to classes isn't something Charles wants to do but he knows Sasha has plans and he will stick by her side.
V-icious, Darla wants Stefen to herself she feels threatened for the first time, she is determined to make those around her pay.
I-ntrigue, Stefen was weak he continues to punish himself, he knows what must be done but staying away from Sasha gets harder and harder.
N-emesis, Sasha finds one everywhere she turns. She is tired of running she refuses to be anyone's kicking stone.
G-rowth, Sasha knows she is different and everyone around her knows she is powerful it is time she began embracing it.

T-ouch, Sasha feels the pull towards Stefen but she will blanket the connection she has to find a way to distance herself. 
H-elp, kind and handsome Sasha allows herself to lend her trust and small parts of her heart to an unlikely candidate
E-mbrace, accepting this new world is too hard but it seems Sasha has no choice she has always been alone.

E-nlightened, Sasha is a hands on type of person now that she has discovered how to tap into her magic she will improve dramatically. 
L-earning, an evening full of sadness will introduce Sasha to a new world of possibilities. A confession is made that should infuriate her but all she can feel is whats right in front of her.  
E-ngaging, Stefen knows he will be forced into a decision he does not want to make. His feelings are changing and complicating his life. 
M-esmerizing, the connection Stefen started has been completely solidified. Nothing can severe this bond, a moment of pure bliss will further complicate his life.
E-nsconced, a power unlike anything imaginable will unite and ignite, changing not only them but everything they've ever known. 
N-etting, Charles will sacrifice and fight, nothing can stop what is about to take place. 
T-orment, everyone knows his stance, his rage absolute anything in his way will crumble. Stefen will not be bested.
S-urvival, together Stefen and Sasha complete the impossible. White magic is no longer the most powerful. Black has come to party and what a party it is!!

The emotions are off the charts in this one! Seriously. Breene has something special going on here. There isn't anything disturbing in this installment but the steam is steamy. Breene writes one of the best sexy scenes I've ever read, and I've read a lot of them. *winky face* I definitely recommend this series its a great adventure full of allure. I can see this making the golden screen and people lining up.

About the Author

A wine country native, she moved to San Francisco for college just shy of a decade ago to pursue a lifelong interest in film. As she settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while she thought making films was great fun, she lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, her career path quickly changed direction. Her next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the dining room table while filling out a form. For some reason, her young self wanted to be an accountant. Thinking on it now, she wonders how she had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction she finally took.

While she could wrangle numbers with the best of 'em, and even though she wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, her mind got as stuffy as her daily routine. It was here that she dusted off her creative hat and began writing. Now she makes movies in her head, and then writes them down. Way easier than dealing with actors--she should know, she’s been one!
