IN THE DARK (Book 2) August 25, 2015
Stuck spending the summer with his screwed up family, Gabriel Walker is bored out of his mind and looking for an adventure. And he seems to find it with the hot girl who lives next door. The attraction between them is instant. Electric. Soon they’re spending every stolen minute together. Talk about the perfect summer fling…
Lucy isn’t what she seems. She doesn’t live next door—she’s the girl who’s been hired to house sit for the summer while the family goes on a worldwide vacation. If Gabe wants to believe she’s a spoiled rich girl looking for some fun, she can go along with that. After the summer, she’ll never see him again.
They don’t count on running into each other at college. Now Lucy must keep up the pretense of being a rich girl—and it’s exhausting. She knows she’s falling in love with Gabe and she’s scared he feels the same. Will he still care about her when he discovers the truth?
Review:

I absolutely love The Rules Series!! I thought that I couldn’t love a story more than Fair Game, but I like I do. Ms. Murphy has written a story that grabbed my attention from the very first page (I love books like that). I like that book can be read as a stand-alone and we get to see our favorite characters in each book.

Gabe or Mr. GQ was such a great character; he is definitely book boyfriend material! I love how he let Lucy know what he wanted and didn’t play games with her. Of course sometimes she didn’t like what he said, but at least he didn’t keep anything from her. Then there’s Lucy I think she was also extremely likable. She has sassy and realistic. Although, the whole time I wanted her to tell Gabe that she was just house sitting. Lucy also fit in with Gabe’s friends very well.

This story was told in a duel POV and I love when that is done. I like knowing what both the hero and the heroine are thinking.

I can’t not wait to read Tristan’s story next! I know it’s going to be an interesting one since he’s having a hard time letting go of “the rules”. Lets see what kind of girl grabs his attention!!!

Meet the crew!
