Darkest Night is the first book in the Romantic Suspense Sons of Broad series. There were a couple of things I liked and a couple of things I didn't. It started great and I was looking forward to seeing how the two main characters Keaton and Tilly would reconnect and develop their relationship. Both of them were likable characters and had great personalities. However after being out of touch for eight years, they kind of rushed back into things pretty quickly. I would've wanted them to take it a bit slower and to reconnect more. Because of this it was harder for me to connect with them. I did love how they treated each other, there was a great mutual respect and open communication. They didn't try to 'protect' one another by withholding information.

I also had some issued with the suspense part. It was a bit of a chaos, and I got confused at times. Also there were a couple of loose ends, which left me unsatisfied. Those will probably be resolved in the upcoming books in the series. I did like Keaton's older brothers Knox and Kipling, and the author gave some insight into who their love interest will be in the next books. I think Darkest Night was an okay start to a new series. I am looking forward to the next books in the series because I want to know what will happen next. Also the writing was very pleasant and easy to read.
