When Emma moves to Astoria, Oregon, she is given two rules: #1 Dont cross to their side of the street.#2 Dont mess with the elites, especially Lexen Darken, top elite and resident bad boy. While she finds this both weird and insulting, Emma has no actual intention of breaking these rules - until her guardians go missing. Now all bets are off. Only a single line separates her side of the street from the elites', and she's crossing it.Captured and held by Lexen and his brothers, she learns the rules are in place for a very good reason. There's a secret world hidden in this small town which goes far beyond the one she knows and understands. A world not for humans....

House of Darken (Secret Keepers #1) Reviews
Amazing start of this series!!!... I'm already a fan of Jaymin, so it's not a surprise I loved this new book... It's so well written, good pace and fluent... I like the story line a lot, the mystery around "the elites" is so good, you don't expect what they really are once you find out... Emma is a strong, intelligent, really good person, who values every single person despite their origin... The elites are so arrogant and offensive to them, but she is so drawn into their world, that ends in her ...more
Sweet and a natural progression of a relationship instead of insta-bonding stuff. The story was inventive enough with the supernatural world (don't want to spoil what they actually turn out being for those who haven't read it, it takes a bit to reveal). Looks like the second book goes with someone new from the existing group with a new girl, as each find their match. All ties into an overlying plot that's decently creative on tying the four girls together with the four males. Snarky humor and a ...more
I had no idea what to expect going into this book but I really loved it.
1) There’s a Roswell (TV show) feel to it. And I loved Roswell.
2) One word: dragons.
3) Gruff, alpha, protective and sweet hero.
4) Spunky, brave, and funny heroine.
5) Great secondary cast of characters.
6) A fantastic storyline with a good pace, thrilling scenes, humor and feels.
Man, oh man! I cannot wait to read the next book!
I am a hard core Jaymin fan .. If she writes it i will read it... This book is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC.. Just like all of Jaymin's books she takes you to brand new places and draws you in you don't want to stop reading .. This book was everything and more.. Jaymin doesn't disappoint you when you travel to any of her worlds .. I loved it from start to finish and can't wait for the next book ..
House of Darken is a paranormal, urban fantasy with mystical beings and a go-getter protagonist. We see some of our favorite Jaymin Eve tropes like a host of protective males + one female, an unraveling mystery, love, and possibly true mates.
It's a fun story, and I liked the base storyline concept. Thrown into a new society where Emma is a bottom feeder, she has to navigate a new neighborhood as well as a new school, both with politics and class issues. I felt this book had elements of Twilight ...more
This one misses the mark for me....
Usually I like the authors work but something here just was off. The MC never heard of Snapchat but was in regular high school a year ago?
Her guardians were missing how long before she was ready to call the cops?
Few other things that just didn’t make sense.
I just didn’t get the relationship at all. What drew Lex in? All her crying?
Gave a star for the interesting world and plot, another for editing.
I love Jaymin Eve and all the creative ways she brings her characters to life. If you have read her Walker Saga series, this has a very similar base to it and OMG IT'S AMAZING! Thanks in character Emma is strong willed, spunky and hilarious and the guy is drool worthy and is a great companion for Emma. I'm telling you, this book and I'm not being presumptuous in saying, this series is AMAZING. So worth the buy and I'm going into a book coma waiting on the next one.
Thank you Jaymin for thi ...more
A fun fantastical sci-fi thriller and romance!
This first installment in what appears to be a trilogy is set in Astoria, Oregon.
Here, the social status is determined by the four houses, in this case House of Darken where three gorgeous brothers and their beautiful sister live and dominate the local private school.
Enter Emma, who has moved to Astoria with her foster parents after both her parents are killed in a fire.
She’s no damsel in distress and I love her snarky humor and self deprecating mum ...more
