Decoding Darkness (Dark Codes #3)

My rating: ❤❤of 5!

Decoding Darkness


After reading the first two books I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next bad boy, and whilst it was alright, I didn’t love it as much as the first one. Unfortunately, I still think that Darcy is to blame. I really adored her in the first book, but now she seems a bit too immature and stubborn for my liking. There’s nothing wrong with a headstrong FMC, however, a downright dumb and emotional one is another story!

I’ve allowed myself to be kidnapped by the person I hate most in the world…

I find myself in the clutches of the monster who murdered my father. He wants something from me—something I have no intention of ever giving him. But there are men with him who I fear more, men who will take whatever they want from a woman, whether or not she agrees.

Locked in a dark cell, with threats coming at me from every direction, only one thing keeps me going—that the five guys who burst into my life so unapologetically will now come to rescue me.

The memory of their passionate touches and kisses warm me in my darkest moments. But I’m no damsel in distress. I might need them to get me out of here, but I have plans of my own. I’ll retrieve the device they’ve been hunting for, and I’ll fight until it’s back in rightful hands.

I think I have a complex when it comes to female leads, and maybe they have too much to live up to in my imagination. However, for me Darcy just keeps hitting an all-time new low time and time again. She is too emotional, selfish and has a serious inferior complex. I mean seriously, that chip on her shoulder that makes her keep saying “you won’t hold me back just because I’m a woman” just isn’t attractive – especially not considering that she isn’t trained like the guys and she keeps proving she is ruled by her emotions. So whilst trying to shy away from the ugly stereo types she proves them right over and over again.

With the above being said I do think my biggest let down in this book is after Darcy realises that the bad FBI agent is going to use drugs (truth serum) to get the code from her, which had never occurred to her, and yet one of her most used arguments is: “my dad was an FBI agent I know xxxxx” – which clearly she doesn’t. On top of that I can’t take it serious when she sits there and says she can stop herself from spilling the beans regardless of what torture she’s going to be subjected to, like seriously????????
