Tess thought she would live out her life in Last Stop, Texas as a mortician caring for the bodies of locals and trying to keep her mother out of trouble. When Eve Winter buys out the funeral home Tess had hoped would one day be her own and employs some very buff and gorgeous men Tess gets more than she bargained for.
Deacon Tucker is the leader of an elite secret military team known as the Grave Diggers. They are just one part of an expansive team put together to weed out and stop terrorist attacks. Deacon thought his life would be spent alone, dead to the world until he met Tess Sherman. For years Deacon has had his eye on Tess but she was always just out of reach. A relationship seemed impossible until one day his boss ordered him to seduce and use Tess for her knowledge of Russian Mafiya. The order was just the excuse Deacon needed to pursue his own interest in Tess.
The Darkest Corner was my first read by Liliana Hart. I enjoyed the story of a mortician whose life is unknowingly invaded and turned upside down by a secret military operation. I love the mix of romance and action. I look forward to reading the rest of the series when they come out.
I give The Darkest Corner 4 stars and would pair it with a Blind Russian
