Publisher's Summary

Sometimes I wish it was just him and me.

Sometimes I wish there never was an Indie or a Donovan; that McKay and I just ran away together when we were young. Sailed around the world. Climbed mountains. Learned to parachute. Did whatever we wanted and never thought about this place, or the Company and our place in it, ever again.

Sometimes I wish we were broke, and uncomfortable, and stressed out about things like rent, and food, and bad tires. I wish we had done it differently. I wish I had listened to Gerald. I wish I wasn’t 37 years old, filled up to my neck and choking on regrets.

Lovely Darkness is about love, and regrets, and accepting the truth - even if it breaks you. It is the last book in the dark romantic thriller series Creeping Beautiful and must be listened to in order.

A UNIQUE • BRILLIANT • MIND-MELTING • GOODBYE

Ditto to the mind blown comments.. to the awesome world-building and web-weaving.. to the plot twists and revelations.. to the tying-up of loose ends.. to the full cast of twisted interesting characters and their perfect partnership to each A list narrator. And most importantly, to the pure genius that is JA Huss who, over these many many years, has delivered riveting awesome Company stories. I stand up in respect, I clap your performances one and all and I shout out in hope for a future Encore please.

Worth a credit? Yes yes and always yes. Read them in order you lucky lucky people who are just starting out on this incredible, unique, mind-melting journey.

mind blown!!!!!

Feels like the end to an amazing era. I thought I knew what was kind of going to happen in this book, but alas Julie just has a way of twisting her stories so you just can't stop reading until you know. I was definitely not disappointed, it was filled with such longing to reach the point of it's going to be ok now that I couldn't stop reading. No spoilers so just listen, listen them all. Thank you for another rollercoaster ride madam.

Fabulous!

The Company books have been a total mind blowing experience thanks to the devious and brilliant genius that is JA Huss. Her books are sexy, thrilling and full of oh-sh*t moments that keep me on my toes when my mind wasn’t exploding with the latest plot twist. I have grown to love these ruthless killers because underneath the corruption that is The Company they all just want to be accepted and loved and that is universal to humanity. If you love a multilayered story with dubious but fascinating characters and a super twisted alternate world of reality this series is for you! Prepare to have your mind blown on a regular basis. I absolutely loved the narration performances of all of the outstanding narrators involved in this project! They are all fabulous and did an excellent job bringing these characters to life.

Mind Blowing

What a mind blowing and twisted end to a fantastic series. I didn't quite expect Sasha Cherlin to do that. JA Huss is an amazing writer. Maybe some day she will be able to catch us up.on all the characters. I'm going to miss this series. Mind Blowing!!!

A-Freaking-mazing!

I’m never disappointed with a JAHuss book, but wow!! I almost didn’t want to read it because I hate endings, but I couldn’t help myself. I went back to the beginning and read all the books until I had no other choice but to read this one and see what happened. Holy shit! What a way to end things. Or is it really over? I’m just still in awe of Julie’s story telling abilities. I realize we are basically living the Company in real life but she adds so much to the timelines and characters that aren’t in real life. Julie you are a master. Never stop writing! This is definitely your calling.

Characters & Narrators were phenomenal..amazing.

Ending sucks. There was never going to be a good way to conclude this book. Too much stuff to reconcile. I loved listening to these books even though I knew the ending could not possibly match the series.

An end to the Company family or not?

This is the 4th and final book and maybe the final of the never ending tales of the company family that we have known through all the books by JA Huss. I have been hooked from the very beginning and this is a sweet, satisfied closure to all the characters I grew to like - Sasha, Indie, Adam, McKay, Nic, Wendy. Donavan, Merc…For those who have not read the previous books and spin offs…this will be very confusing - there is so much history to each of the characters and how they intertwine with each other….Overall, the narration as expected was done superbly . Make sure you listen to JA Huss EOBS - so much more to come and Julie tells more of these tales…

My head is spinning!

HOLY COW! I am sitting here just digesting everything I just read. I cannot believe how it ended! I mean wtf!? I am happy with the outcome, but am finding myself also a little disappointed but I can't say why. It's not that anyone really got shafted in their personal ending, honestly, I think it was the best possible outcome for all of them. I think maybe, it was hard to seethe parting of ways of certain individuals. There was a LOT going on in this final book, so many things to wrap up. It was nonstop information overload, and it was fantastic! I found myself wondering if I had everyone wrong, were they the people I thought they were? Truly sad its over, but it was worth the wait. Narration was on point by the fantastic cast of all stars.

It felt like the last puzzle piece slid into place.

I don’t want to write any spoilers, but I spent most of this book feeling like it should make sense, but it wasn’t, until the end that is, when is finally all made sense. Fantastic ending to the company. (The company so far)

Amazing end to the Company Journey

Wow….. So “The Company” series has come to an end (or has it)
Lets talk about this final book first. It was not only a great ending to this series but I found it a great ending to “The Company” series. Lots of questions were answered and lots of loose ends tired up, but a few were left dangling, just incase Julie decides to write some more. What I liked is Julie has left it open to the possibilities of more to come if she wants to, but she didnt cut it off and leave us wondering “what happened”
This last book didnt have huge twists like other books, dont get me wrong there were a couple and yes she still F$%ked with our minds a little! (I love that!)

I loved that this series had some old players back in the game, even if they didnt have a star role Julie still managed to mention them in passing (she is great like that and I find she does that with all her books)

For me I am a new fan to Julie's world but others have been here for ages, I would like to think they too would have enjoyed how Julie summed up this whole journey, hell it has been a long one for them. I was lucky enough to have been able to listen back to back, from start to finish with no gaps between books (which I suggest you do if you want to get deep into this world)

I dont have many authors or books, that I add to a re-listen to list, as I love discovering new worlds, new stories and new authors, but I have already re-listened to a couple of Julie's, so YES for sure I will be re-listening to these again.

Julie has this talent where she not only tells a good story, but she tells them all a little different to the others. As a reader (I listen) this keeps us interested and we dont get bored, and hell we crave more!

Julie from me to you, THANK YOU.
