Garrett (Dark Water Security #2)
By Madison Quinn
Rated 4 stars

This is an good story. For the second in the series it can be read as a stand alone. The writing was nice but seemed too focused the relationship. Meaning I really wish there was more Interaction between a few of the characters(from Dark waters or even Abby) instead of the day to day of the two MC. I was hoping for some bonding between the girls (Emily and Hope). Or even from the guys at the Security firm.

Hope has had a struggle the last few years. After a lovely night she disappears on Garrett. Garrett seems like a super sweet guy and has some great qualities. He’s looking to recover that lost love. Once he sees Hope he wonders if they can make it work. This is a second chance story.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a second chance story that has a few twists and turns that keep the story engaging. Garrett and Hope met one night only to meet once again a few years later. What will happen when they come face to face again? I enjoyed both characters and the suspense and the lurking danger they bring to the story. Their chemistry is great and strong. I found myself hoping that they make through together at the end. I highly recommend this book, I can’t wait for the next one in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has it all. Romance, drama…you name it. This second book in the series doesn’t disappoint AT ALL. I really love the author’s voice and writing style. The characters are real, gritty, relatable. This book hooked me on the first page and didn’t let go. I enjoy books that immediately transport me into their world and I feel as though I am walking alongside the characters – this book absolutely did that for me. Well written.

They deserve happiness and I was rooting for them to find it. The story has steamy and romantic moments. It also enjoyed reading about many of the secondary characters that are introduced. This is an amazing second book in the Dark Water Security series. Highly recommended reading.

Two and a half years ago at a buddy’s wedding, I found the perfect woman. The one who actually made me want to try for something more than a one night stand. But before I had the chance to even find out her last name, she was gone.

With my time in the Marines behind me, I’m starting a new position providing live-in security to some rich tech guy who has been receiving threats. I’m not certain I’m going to accept the position until I learn the mysterious woman who disappeared on me happens to be my new roommate. There’s no way I can turn down this position.

What’s even more surprising than her walking into the room to serve us dinner, is that she refuses to talk about the night we spent together! What makes the color leave her face, her hands start to shake and look like she’s on the verge of a panic attack at the mere mention of that night?

When the threats against our new boss start escalating, I vow to protect the both of them even if she continues to hide something from me. I don’t know what it is about her, but she hasn’t been far from my thoughts for the last two years and I’m not about to let her go just because my new boss pissed off a few people.


Madison is a mom to three energetic boys, a wife to a wonderful husband, a full time manager in the human services field and in her spare time an avid reader.
She began writing “stories” in high school, but stopped when life became too busy. A couple years ago she started writing again but only recently (since September) began sharing her books with readers. She loves the idea of escaping reality for a little while and getting lost in a good love story.

Luke (Dark Water Security #1) by Madison Quinn – Review by Ashleigh Whitwell

Luke (Dark Water Security #1)Luke by Madison Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Luke is the first instalment of the Dark Water Security series. A contemporary romance that deals with some dark and disturbing issues, it had me hooked from the very first chapter. While it’s a lot darker than I normally go for, I absolutely loved this story and the characters we meet. Luke and Emily have a connection so strong that it’s believable, despite this being a short and intense read. If you like your romances with added danger, this is a must read for you.

The book opens in a dark place, with Luke held prisoner at the hands of a violent and unrelenting monster. Forced to fit for his life, Luke has all but given up hope of ever escaping. So when his rebellion causes an innocent, fifteen-year old girl to join him in captivity, he puts every last ounce of strength in finding a way to free them both. Ten years later and Luke has made a life himself. A distinguished army service and now running a private security firm, the last thing he needs is to be thrown into the past. Seeing him work with Emily again is so addictive. I was hooked on reading their scenes together and seeing the chemistry fly. Emily is a very different person to the one he remembers, and seeing her so strong was empowering after everything she has been through.

If fear and danger is what you’re looking for, this book ticks all of the boxes. It starts and ends with Emily in hot water, so be prepared for a rollercoaster read. The story deals with some difficult themes, so expect some hard to read moments, especially at the start of the book. The author writes these really well, being respectful but realistic at the same time. Like I said, this is darker than I normally read but I absolutely loved it and will definitely be recommending it to others.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Luke was an amazing read! When I first read the blurb I will admit I wasn’t quite sure but the author really has written a brilliant story. There was a lot going on in the story which meant that I couldn’t wait to turn the pages to see what was going to happen.
I adore Luke! I actually wanted to be able to give him the biggest hug! I can’t imagine everything that he had been through and I could feel the guilt that he felt also. I loved reading about the connection between him and Emily – there was just something there between them that felt so genuine and sincere. I think they had something that would tie them together forever; they understood each other and everything that they had been through. I desperately wanted them both to find their happily ever after. It’s been a while since two characters have found their way into my heart like these two have done.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was very impressed with her writing, it was engaging and captivating. The plot was good and the pace and flow of the story brilliant. I highly recommend this 5 star book!

Luke (Dark Water Security Series Book 1) by Madison Quinn – Review by Liz Vrchota

Luke (Dark Water Security #1)Luke by Madison Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was quite the introduction to a new author for me. I love a good dark romance. Often if it will hint at it in the blurb I won’t even read the whole synopsis I will just dive in and find out how it was later. I just have a thing for a tragic story with a glimmer of love shining through. Now, Luke was a bit of a different array. I will say it had a lot of the things that I would want and do look for in a dark and twisty read, it just so very often they fell short. The thing is the storyline was catchy and unique, it had you on the edge of your seat having to know what was going to happen regardless of how non climatic it got. Thus I found myself needing to finish the book and would be back to find out what will come next in the series. I do think there is room to grow in the writing as well so I look forward to seeing if that is present as well.

The catch that had me is this was like reading an episode of 20/20. Luke was abducted and tortured as young boy. What fans of this genre here want are merely teased I believe which is where this book fell short, but then he is later in life met again with the girl he was was held captive with comes into his life as and adult again. Things are of course set for some intense drama and storylines. Like I said I look forward to seeing what will come in the next book that should be out here shortly actually, March of 2019. I think I will even go give this one a re-read and see if I missed a thing or two before then!

Luke (Dark Water Security Series Book 1) by Madison Quinn – Review by Maura Harper

Luke (Dark Water Security #1)Luke by Madison Quinn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

LUKE is the first book I’ve read by this author. This is one of those books that almost seemed like two different, really good, yet different books, were written and for some reason put together in the same binding.

The story starts out really strong. It’s a dark drama involving the two main characters set in the past when they are both teenagers. Then rather abruptly, we are in present time and it seems as if there is a story that we have entered the middle of involving alpha men who run a security company. Both stories have huge potential, but the way they are put together seems disjointed and going in two different directions. I really want to like it but it’s just so scattered that it felt unfinished.

I always appreciate when an author puts their thoughts on paper and even though this particular story wasn’t my cup of tea, I am invested enough to find out what happened to one of the secondary characters to continue with the story.

Luke (Dark Water Security Series Book 1) by Madison Quinn

5 Stars

This is my first book by this author and I loved the storyline and the writing. The beginning of this story was really hard and set the stage for the rest of the book, and I loved how the experiences that started in the beginning followed through and the way it shaped our characters.

I loved the suspense of wondering …. Is she or isn’t she? And really didn’t know until the truth finally came out.

This was a quick read and I read it in one sitting and before I knew it I was done and already want more, and can not wait for this series to continue.

I love finding new to me authors and will be looking for more while I wait for the next in this story.

Awesome and highly recommend.
