    I give this book 3.75 stars...…. I couldn't wait to get my hands Fin and Daphne's story. I had been waiting since I read book three first. And I was not disappointed in the story itself. This book was an emotional read. Once I started I could not put it down. It had me on the edge of my seat. My only issue was there were many errors in this book not just with spelling but also with plot errors. I did really enjoy the book. And I look forward to watching C.E. Johnson's writing career grow.

    Intended for a mature audience 18+ (Mental illness and suicide) This is the second book of the In the Dark series. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this story. Finn and Daphne’s story is one that is filled with loss, love, and learning about forgiveness. I loved every single page. This book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, so sit back and make sure you are buckled in! I also had to have a few tissues at the ready. So glad that Finn and Daphne found each other.

    I'm going all over the place with these reads but hang in there with me because I have become a fast fan of this author.  I was very excited to see that this was Finn's story. I had my fingers crossed, but you never know. He was a super alpha character and Daphne was so fun. She had a great personality and felt with his alpha-ness very well. I loved that the author also didn't make him a tool. That sometimes happens with alpha characters, they are tools, but he was also caring and kind.

    3.5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 Just One is book two in the ‘In the Dark’ series, but it can be read as a standalone. It’s a steamy, suspenseful and emotional read. Daphne experienced great tragedy, but she did her best to be strong. Finn was there from the very beginning to support her, be her friend and care for her, even when she thought she’d be okay on her own. Although they have shared a couple intimate moments up to this point, they still only labelled themselves as friends and coworkers.

Daphne experienced great tragedy, but she did her best to be strong. Finn was there from the very beginning to support her, be her friend and care for her, even when she thought she’d be okay on her own. Although they have shared a couple intimate moments up to this point, they still only labelled themselves as friends and coworkers. But that isn’t the case for long. Both parties have been holding back real feeling that have developed and grown. Finn is willing to give Daphne time to come to terms with everything, but he lays it all out there- he wants to be with her, all-in. He was so protective of Daphne, gentle and loving. You just knew that he would do anything for her. The pacing of the story started dragging a bit for me around the halfway mark, but I pushed on and it picked up again about three quarters of the way through. There was a twist in there that I didn’t see coming, all signs were pointing me in another direction. That surprise element was great! Overall, a satisfying read. My favorite part of the story was Finn, he was simply sweet and amazing. If you’re in the mood for a romantic suspense, check it out.

    Five stars is not nearly enough for Just One by C.E. Johnson! This book is the second in the In The Dark series, but it can be read alone!

Johnson! This book is the second in the In The Dark series, but it can be read alone! I literally got goosebumps while reading the final paragraph! Daphne has lived her life around her brother Jarrod and his mental illness. After a life changing event occurs Daphne's entire life is turned upside down. From rock bottom Daphne realizes there's more to her manager Finn then meets the eye(both literally and figuratively speaking!) Finn reveals he has been in love with Daphne since the day she came into his Irish pub for a waitress job. Finn is amazing for Daphne because she's never felt loved by though who should've made her feel that way. Will the bond and love between Daphne and Finn be able to withstand all that life will throw at them? The story is amazing! I fell in love with Finn immediately. The twists are fantastic! I thought I knew what was happening the whole time.. But C.E. Johnson pulled the rug right under me. I'm pretty sure my mouth was open for a good five minutes when I found out one of the twist! It only takes one great book to hook you on an author and this book is definitely the one to do that!

    We met Finn in Benson and Sophie's story and I loved how protective he was towards Sophie. I just knew that when he found someone he cared about, he would be all in and give it everything he has. I was not wrong! Finn and Daphne's story is fast-paced but it doesn't feel rushed. They have known each other for quite awhile, but circumstances have kept them apart. Once their secrets become revealed, they realize they don't want to waste time and want to be with one another.

However, love isn't simple and they have numerous hurdles to get through. I loved how there were twists and turns throughout the book. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, CE Johnson threw a curve ball that I never saw coming. I loved how Benson and Sophie were a part of this book as well as some amazing other characters that I would love to see get their own books one day. I shed numerous tears in this book, swooned hard over Finn and the ending of this book melted my heart. Trust me, you need to read this book!! You don't want to miss out on Finn and Daphne's story!!!!

    When I read the description for this book I was ecstatic to find out that book two was Finn’s story. He was the character that I enjoyed the most. He’s patient and caring, but don’t think that makes him any less of an alpha male. He has his sights set on Daphne and he’s not going to let her fall, unless it’s in the form of falling for him. This story is a journey of love, loss, and this couple finding their center. I really enjoyed this read. I have said it once, and I’ll say it again… This auth When I read the description for this book I was ecstatic to find out that book two was Finn’s story.

    Exceptional Absolutely exceptional. Author tackles a brutally difficult subject with grace and acceptance. Some mystery, danger, heat and deep emotions make this book a must read. I’m really just amazed at the acceptance. Accepting that someone struggles so hard with mental illness and the fierce love they receive despite the difficult circumstances. True, unwavering love is the theme of this book. Well done. Proud of this author for showcasing mental health this with this love.

    This book is incredible! I already loved Done so when Just One hit my kindle I wasted no time starting that book. I was not disappointed! When a book can get me crying on one page then smiling and laughing on the next, I consider that an incredible read. This is a beautiful story and I absolutely loved Daphne and Finn's relationship. Speaking of Finn... YUM!!!! Great job. Any novel by C.E Johnson is an automatic 1-Click for me! This book is incredible!

    Absolutely loved Finn and Daphne and the relationship that builds. There were some twists and turns that kept you wanting to read more. This passage in the book says it all! ~Because one decision, one phone call, one word, can crumble your entire world, leaving you buried, heartbroken, and barely breathing. It just takes one person to pull you out of the rubble. Just one.

    It isn’t very often that a book leaves me with a hangover. This book did. Its twists had my head spinning. At one time I didn’t believe anyone and thought they all could be guilty of something. It’s a story that focuses on mental illness and suicide. It’s about love and loss. It’s about love and forgiving... all wrapped into a mind blowing story

    This book started out with sadness, but ended with happiness. Such a well written story that takes you on a journey of grief, betrayal, love and finding out who your friends are. I liked Finn 's loyalty and sweetness to Daphne. Poor Daphne how much more could her heart endure before it shattered. I was so happy to see Daphne get a Prince charming and as happy ever after.
