    I read this entire book in one sitting. No shame.

    It was wonderful to be able to see more into the hunter side of the BeMo world, and I may have squealed a little bit every time a character from Matthew’s story came into play. If you’ve read Captive, Sire, and Broken,

    Darius…I adore him. He’s so young and cute, such a huge difference from the put-together incubi we see in Captive, Sire, and Broken. It makes him all the more relatable to see his control snap, or his darling lack of experience in certain areas. He had me laughing in the second paragraph of his first chapter!

    I was a little worried about Kat and the potential she has to get lost in herself, but I’m so excited to see more of her (we will be seeing more of her, right Jex? :P ) and hopefully watch her develop as a hunter. It feels like that girl is destined for big things.

    We can’t forget about Tane. I love Tane. Or rather, I love to hate Tane. Any time he gets put in his place, which happens delightfully often, I can’t help but grin and laugh. You would think it would get to his ego eventually, but I supposed that would imply his ego has limits. Which I sincerely doubt it does.

    I love a book that can make me physically react, and it felt like I was constantly laughing at some shenanigan or another or holding my breath, worried about who might live or die. A fantastic addition to the BeMo universe, I'm excited to see what comes next!

    I binged of this book in one sitting on a work night and only went to bed because I knew I was working 12 hours and I needed the end of this book to be my reward for making it through the day. Totally had a book hangover all day and couldn’t wait to get home and finish the book that night. Thank you Jex for giving me a great reward system ☺ this book landed right beside Captive, Broken and Sire on my favorites shelf.

    I binged ¾ of this book in one sitting on a work night and only went to bed because I knew I was working 12 hours and I needed the end of this book to be my reward for making it through the day.

Thank you Jex for giving me a great reward system ☺ this book landed right beside Captive, Broken and Sire on my favorites shelf.

    Dark of Night is set in the same universe as Beautiful Monsters (BeMo) but focuses on a young Hunter named Kat and gives us a very different view of Ashwood and it’s hunter academy. This story is a true romance and we get our HEA or at the very least a HFN. Kat is a strong, fierce independent female hunter who catches the eye of Darius a social incubus. Both Kat and Darius have some communication issues and misunderstandings and it was immensely entertaining to watch their relationship growing pains. I laughed, I yelled and I was constantly on the edge of my seat.

    Characters from the BeMo series show up throughout the book. I love a good cross over where I get to see my favorite series characters play a role in the spin off. So of course I bounce in my seat and squeal with glee when Tarrick makes several appearances.

    Of course Tane makes several appearances as well and oh that incubus is one I love to hate. Tane and Kats interactions are some of my favorite parts of the book. You’ll have to read Dark of Night to find them for yourself.

    Overall, the world building, plot and character development is exceptional. Jex Lane pulls out all the stops to even provide reviewers with a well edited, ready to roll ARC. From this author you can expect a story that will suck you in, fulfill your romance happy feeling requirements and sustain your need for action and adventure. With Jex and her writing, there is never a dull moment.

While set in the same universe as Beautiful Monsters, Dark of Night is very different from the Beautiful Monsters series. This is a romance book through and through. If you have not read Jex Lane’s books before, this book and the Ashwood Red series will be a good starting point to ease yourself into the world Jex Lane has create. If you are reading this having already read the books in the Beautiful Monsters series, you’ll love seeing the different sides of characters we have met in Beautiful Monsters.

    This book is a lovely short read, that will both leave you satisfied with how the book ended and wanting more story from the characters. 

Definitely looking forward to the next book!

    So first of all, I didn’t know what to expect. I mean other than the fact that last month I slammed through the three Beautiful Monsters books and then sobbed and walked around in a daze wishing I could re-enter the world. Yeah apart from that.

    I heard another book was coming out but NOT the fourth in the other series. No worries. I pre-ordered and waited *patiently*.

    Guess what! I’m as satiated and happy as a well-fed incubus right now. This book has got all the darkness and exotic otherworldly

    Guess what! I’m as satiated and happy as a well-fed incubus right now. This book has got all the darkness and exotic otherworldly depth of Captive, Sire and Broken, but not so much heartache and severe pain. That’s fine by me. It’s still got all the tension and questioning I enjoy in a romance and the “pull you into the world” I’ve now come to expect from this author. Also not to mention a bad-ass heroine who appears to be human. “Appears” because anything could happen in this world and that’s what I love about it.

    This book is completely stand-alone from the author’s other series and of its own series. I’m excited that there’s more to come and whatever Jex Lane writes has now become a must-read for me.

    The dark of night is an M/f novel which is a part of (ashwood red series) 

    The main characters of the novel are kat and Darius. Kat is the character that had initially appeared in "sire of BeMO"(just one scene)

    The main characters of the novel are kat and Darius. Kat is the character that had initially appeared in "sire of BeMO"(just one scene)

    *Spoiler below*

    The Novel starts of with a bang! We see Kat's parents dying in front of her eyes as her father sucks the life out of her mother.

    We get to see a New side of vampire which is cruel and dark. The way the pale vampire robbed Kat's dad away from her. We get to see why most hunters hate vampires. I realised that its not just incubus who has the capacity to be cruel but also vampires.

    Kat unlike a normal teen of her age did not get scared of vampires once she got her memory back, instead she desired to get revenge against the vampire who killed her parents. She is fearless

    We get to see a new side of Lock the way he looks after wellbeng of kat and literally becomes her mentor/guardian. 

    Kat on other hand, unlike silva and other hunters is not disciplined there are many instances where she has been reckless and stubborn 

    Kat is a type if person who makes decisions on her impulse unlike other hunter cops like silva, Prescott or hiroto for ex: when kat was asked to stake a vampire and she had see her father caged and unconscious for the first time after that fateful night made her leave that place on impulse when she was overwhelmed with emotions 

    Darius and kat love story was cliche. I personally felt that the she fell in love too soon even after trying to control her lust at start. 

    Darius on the other hand is a social incubus who is 71 years old. He has insecurities at times and feels ashamed for not being a warrior vampire .

    In short kat is a reckless and impulsive hunter and can be un-disciplined yet she is fearless when faced with danger and stubborn 

    My fav character in this novel has been Darius

    I want to start of this review saying that I read m/f erotica. I do. And the ratings I'm giving this book is not because I have something against m/f.

    I want to start of this review saying that I read m/f erotica. I do. And the ratings I'm giving this book is not because I have something against m/f.

    The book is about a girl name Kat who witnessed her mother's death by the hands of her father, who she finds out is a vampire. She then dedicate her life to take down vampires until she is recruited to join the Hunters. There she meets Darius. Darius is a social incubus, who really, really wants to be a warrior. They fall in love almost instantly and argue about sex and who gets to have with who. Oh and she really wants to kill "The Pale Man."

    OK, so I really enjoyed the idea of Kat 's personality. What do I mean by that? Kat is "fearless" and "strong". This was basically said over and over and over and over again by countless characters. She was basically a Mary Sue....meaning that as soon as she showed up, most of the characters treated her like she was special. She got special treatment.....even though she didn't follow basic hunter rules! Seriously???? Her entire character was a trope that I'm tired of seeing in books.

    My other issue was on the dialogue. It felt rushed. There was a moment where Kat said maybe two things and the people that were talking to her were like...." wow...she challenges authority. " No. She is annoying and rude.

    Weird descriptions . Meandering and sauntering to describe walking into a room....

    Darius....his character was a step up above Kat. He had some interesting....possibly in-depth story potential . There's a lot to unpack with him. There things that he partook in that I thought was interesting and I wished it wasn't glossed over. His background is interesting. His relationship with Tarrick and Tane is fascinating. I really enjoyed the dynamics between them. I really hope we get more from him. I didn't care much about his relationship with Miss perfect, but he piqued my interest.

    The insta love between Darius and Kat was so cringe worthy and so unbelievable. I didn't buy it. Almost as I didn't buy that Kat was an 18 year old.

    Oh....did I mention that Kat's emotional reaction to things are weird? Because they are!

    Dawn!!!! I love her!!! She was delightful and the best friend I would love to have. I'm really curious about her story. And if you read BeMo...you know what she is.

    Can I just say that Tane was one of the best thing about this book. He's consistent with his personality that's for sure.

    It was fantastic to see Tarrick and how kind and loving her treats Darius warmed my heart.

    Ok...so the sex. "Wet folds" I cringe Every Time that was mentioned. But it was hot!

    All in all, I did not enjoy this as much as BeMo. I thought the writing was awkward at some parts, I thought one of main character was incredibly insufferable, I thought the romance happened far too quickly and thus not believable, I thought the Hunters were a disappointment, but I do think that there were parts in this book that is important to the series. We learned a lot. It was stil enjoyable. The fighting scenes were well written.

    This review was difficult for me to write because I see ton of good reviews. And I love Jex! I 'm a huge fan. And I don't want to be hated lol.

    I’m so sad I didn’t like this.

    The author’s other series,

    is one of my favourites so when I saw there was another series of books set not just in the same universe but around the same timeline I was really excited.

    So going in with that in mind I was pretty disappointed.

    I knew this book would be paranormal romance, which is a genre I like, but I was very underwhelmed by the romance part. I didn’t understand the instant attraction of the two main characters Kat and Darius – in

    The author’s other series,

    is one of my favourites so when I saw there was another series of books set not just in the same universe but around the same timeline I was really excited.

    So going in with that in mind I was pretty disappointed.

    I knew this book would be paranormal romance, which is a genre I like, but I was very underwhelmed by the romance part. I didn’t understand the instant attraction of the two main characters Kat and Darius – instant lust, fine, no question, but the way they latched onto each other didn’t feel like it had any buildup or reason, especially from Darius’s side.

    Aside from that the romance was entirely predictable, which I wouldn’t have minded except it didn’t feel unique at all. I felt like I had read all of the setups and basic gist of scenes before

    It lacked the personal spark that would have made these scenes feel new and fresh, the spark that I expected as it is very prominent in the author’s other books, but instead it just felt like a simple repetition of tropes and stereotypes.

    The characters in themselves were fine and would have appealed to me a lot had the focus been a little different. Darius and especially his role as not just being in charge of finances but also fashion of the household would have been super interesting but that was only mentioned in side sentences – instead the focus is on his unreasonable attraction to Kat and how he has troubles dealing with it.

    Kat was a good character, even though I was very surprised and a bit uncomfortable to find she was only 18. I liked her for the most part, especially how brave and assertive she is and how she questions incubi society and customs

    There were some weird little side sentences or paragraphs that seemed to not fit in with her personality at all, which threw me off

    Again, the focus was on her attraction to Darius and how she handles it with a side of her acclimatization to the world of incubi and being a hunter.

    Which brings me to another thing: for a book mostly told from the POV of someone who wants to kill the vampire responsible for the death of her parents…. There’s very little vampire hunting. Or preparing for vampire hunting. Sure, Kat gets training, but it feels more like a minor side plot, and it feels like nobody tells her anything about what’s going on. I really would have liked to read more about the day-to-day work and training of a hunter.

    I also expected the overall plot to be more revenge focused, or at least for the book to have a revenge arc that ties up the beginning and end, but it kind of…. simply didn’t.

    Ultimately it was very inconclusive.

    What I liked was the setting, all the different paranormal and mystical creatures and the new and refreshing and unique take on them which made me love the author’s other books so much. The world-building isn’t exaclty expanded in

    but I found the new small details and glances into different angles of seeing this world very interesting.

    I also liked many of the side characters, especially the members of Ashwood Red, the team of hunters Kat joins. They were all intriguing and I’ll definitely keep watching for their books!

    My review: well, I think this book is great. I think I'm a little bias though.

    Okay srsly, it'll be out Jan 29. It's my toe dip into m/f PNRs. If m/f isn't your thing (I know for a lot of my fans it's not) that's totally fine--you don't need to read this series to understand Matthew's story. However...a whooole lot of BeMo characters have cameos. This book takes place during Captive's timeline.
