Bleak Nights by Jenna Van Burke

This is a gripping and thrilling story. Antti is home looking for his brother after being apart for 9 years when he meets Brooke. Brooke is in Finland looking to get herself pregnant by a man she'll never see again, and won't know about the baby. I spent the first half of the book very confused, I did not read the first two books. But that made it more intriguing. Antti and Brooke end up falling in love and rethinking the future, but both have secrets that could destroy their future. There is also a killer on the hunt for revenge. I couldn't put this down, both parts of the storyline were fascinating.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
