Can she find her zen and unmask the real murderer? Or get used to a life of prison orange?
My review will be a little late. I'm currently in the process of reading it, but today is my birthday, so I might not put my review up until way later or tomorrow at some time. In the meantime you should read my reviews of the other books in the series. My review of Defcon Darcy is brand new!

It’s a typical day in Darcyville when a dead body lands in front of her. She and her friends are dancing away at Club Need when the wall deteriorates and a body falls right in front of Darcy and Dylan. This can only mean on thing, Darcy is going to find out how it happened and who did it. One of her contacts pleads with her to let this one go but she can’t. This leads her down a dangerous path and she might not make it back. Through her cunning and cleverness, she gets the girls name and a clue that she might have been trying to spy on an underground fight club.
Let the fight begin!
OMG A.J. does it again with another awesome book. I don’t know how she does it but they keep getting better and better. This is by far my favorite out of all the books…as of right now. I’ve yet to read Foolproof yet. This book had me from the start and didn’t let go. You’d think it was going to go one way but it didn’t. I like surprises. There was a little foreshadowing but my mind was like Nah let it go. Listen to your instincts people! LoL Darcy is a hoot like always and she always seems to find trouble. She can’t help it, she is a magnet. She also has become a magnet for guy, like whoa! Gorgeous guys galore!!!!! *drools* Clean up on aisle 5! So let’s get away from that topic for a minute and talk about some stuff that happened in the book. Underground fight clubs have always been interesting to me. I like it has to do with some movies that I watched. This particular underground fight club is not what I had in mind. That was some scary stuff and I cried multiple times. So dang heartbreaking and I found my self praying for Darcy and her companion. Darcy is one heck of a girl and I’m determined that she can withstand anything. She does crack a little but she has support. She always picks her self up though and is a better person because of it. There is some tension between Darcy and Dylan but their love for one another is a fiery passion that no one can smother. They are HAWT HAWT HAWT. There is one person in the book that has surpassed my love for Dylan *GASP* I know, I know. It was unexpected but I think Dylan will drag me back in the next books, but Ben has found a place in my heart. Oh my goodness. He is so strong and and and Words can not describe how I feel about him. The things he did in the book just made me cry for him and cheer for him at the same time. My goodness he is so freaking dream worthy. I wonder what will happen to him in the next book. I know Darcy will find herself in another mess but what kind I’m not sure. I just know that it will be a rollercoaster ride that I’ll love.
Overall: This book packs a huge Punch ;) It has an underground fight club, a dead body, a mystery, and of course, Darcy. What more could you want? This is the best book A.J. has written so far and I highly recommend you start this series. You will not be disappointed, ever!
P.s. This book made me ugly cry. *sniff*
