Review: Drawn to Darkness by Michelle Heard

Charming characters and adorable moments, which was weird for Mafia Romance

“Drawn to Darkness” by Michelle Heard promises a sweeter story than her usual fare, and it certainly delivers on that front. However, the sweetness may be a bit overwhelming for some readers. This book is a cute, short, and easy read, but it leans heavily on clichés and lacks a strong plot.

Dario, the mafia man with a heart of gold, is an endearing character. His sweetness and loving nature stand out, making him a highlight of the story. Eden, his love interest, is portrayed as strong and hardworking, adding depth to her character. Their insta-love relationship, while typical of previous books, is charming in its own way, with adorable moments that will make readers smile.

One of the delightful aspects of the book is Dario’s relationship with his dog, Bella, adding an extra layer of cuteness to the story.

However, “Drawn to Darkness” falls short of being memorable. The lack of a compelling plot and the reliance on clichés make it an okay read, but not one that stands out. Despite this, the book is enjoyable and fun, especially for those looking for a light, sweet romance.

Overall, “Drawn to Darkness” is a pleasant, if somewhat forgettable, read that offers heartwarming moments and charming characters. If you’re in the mood for a quick, cute romance, this might just be the book for you.
