Dark Energy:

Return to Becker Circle

by Addison Brae


GENRE: Romantic Suspense/New Adult



I had just started over with a new career, boyfriend, and confidence after escaping a vicious murder investigation. When Pinkie’s arrest leaves me struggling to run his two bars, I vow not to let my mentor and friend go down for something he didn’t do. Now I’m forced to trust the cops, people who hurt me, and known criminals, but will it be enough to free Pinkie and save my life?



Check out Addison’s intriguing book trailer for “Dark Energy: Return to Becker Circle,” below:



Thinking about Pinkie reminds me of how Jon explains the Dark Energy lyrics. Jon says the song symbolizes me as the dark matter that draws people to one another. It’s similar to the way gravity pulls planets, stars, suns, and other matter together in the cosmos.

Pinkie is the dark matter in my world. He’s the one who connects ideas and creates bonds. He shapes the environment for the better. We both resist dark energy, the empty space that opposes dark matter and slips into the voids of our lives to disrupt. It’s like real dark energy lurks in the cosmos trying to destroy our universe.

The crew’s so on top of things I don’t need Pinkie to do actual work. And I’ve gotten so used to juggling both bars and making decisions I don’t need his validation like before. When he’s around, I’m happier and more confident. Pinkie’s kind spirit—his karma—makes wherever he is a better place. My dark matter.



From Excerpt Two:

Shadows always lurk into the voids.

The great destroyer follows me.

A powerful force

Rips apart my universe

As I want it to be.

Dreams they shatter across the sky

Like shooting stars flying by.

Give it up. Throw it away.

One less win. Another day.

In this dark energy.

Find someone else to conquer.

What does it mean this dark energy?

Dark energy won’t control my fate.

Why do I deserve this dark energy?

I create my own history.

Don’t push this, this on me.

Tipping the balance

Shed some light and set it free

This dark energy.

Find someone else to conquer.

What does it mean this dark energy?

Dark energy won’t control my fate.

I do not deserve this dark energy.

This book was an interesting, intriguing, and exciting read!

I really enjoyed the main characters.  They were realistic, likable, and relatable!  I loved Gillian!  She was strong, smart, dedicated, persistent, caring, compassionate, and at times a bit stubborn lol.  She was a great lead female character with wit, charm, and tenacity that you just couldn’t help but root for and hope her story works out.

I enjoyed the story line and felt engaged in the story structure and plot points.  The writing was steady and easily flowed.

Cybercrime is such an intriguing topic to me, so I was so excited and curious about this book and it did not disappoint!  Today’s world – especially now with COVID-19 revolves around computers.  We need to be able to trust them, but there are too many bad people and too many ways for them to become dangerous and vulnerable to attacks.

I really enjoyed and appreciated the author’s depth of research that was thoroughly highlighted in this book.  Her expertise of cybercrime and bar management was impressive.  She also kept the material educational, but not overwhelming as it was easily to grasp and follow.

This book was such a fun, quick, enjoyable read that I was able to finish in just a few sittings!

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book is Book Two in the Return to Becker Circle Book Series.  It can be read as a standalone.  I had not read the first book prior to reading this book, and I did not have any complications or get lost.  There clearly is story line and character overlap, and I think I would have enjoyed reading book one first to have gotten to know the characters better, but it’s not required to enjoy book two!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all romantic suspense fans and adult/new adult readers will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!
