    My Review:I'll be honest. Horror is NOT my thing, but supporting authors is, so I had bought this book simply to support the author. I honestly figured I'd never read it and that's okay. I have over a thousand books in my TBR pile. I have plenty to read. But today I was reading a book that was the exact OPPOSITE of this one (erotic romance) and that book is good, but I have to sometimes take those in smaller doses, so I needed a break. I knew this was short, so decided to give it a try. It was the PERFECT solution for my reading break from my other book, because this book was really, really good. The book takes place on Sarah's roof and immediately I felt empathy for her. Wow, I could not imagine that situation as she's watching the flood waters flow around her two story house...almost to the roofline. But this is a horror book, so you know something else is going on, right? There were two twists to this story. One I saw coming. The other...I had no clue and I literally gasped when it revealed (which totally freaked out my 7 yo reading her book beside me...LOL.)This is a short novel, but it's extremely well written and riveting. If you like your horror with a bit of a spookier ambience and a serious level of anticipation, I recommend it. For me, it was the perfect levels of creepy vs. I just really NEEDed to know what exactly happened in those hours leading up to the flood.

    Just got my first real Kindle, and this was the first thing I read on it. Wow -- what a way to indoctrinate my Kindle!! This is a fantastic short that you can feel with all senses and is disturbing on a multitude of levels. For every "Ah-ha!" moment I had there was another surprise, and the climax knocked my socks off. There's horror within horror, and I hope there is a sequel or full-length novel that comes out of this, because I want more!

    This is the second book I've read by this author, and they were each very different in tone and genre. I think he has an amazing voice and reach.This story is very short, a sit down read that takes about an hour.But, it focuses on the fears and guilt that humans have to face when they've reached their breaking point.Sarah is a mother, trapped in a life she never wanted. A life, exactly like the one her mother before her had.In the wake of a terrible flood, she takes the opportunity to revenge herself and escape her life, as it stands.What she does, and what happens to her when reality hits, is intense and dramatic.Meeting the creature named, Jasmine, will change her forever.This book is set up for a sequel, so I say to Kevin, "Bring it on!"

    Dark Water: Beaming Smile by Kevin James BreauxThis is a short horror story that is especially good. It runs about 30 pages so it‘s a quick read. Dark Water takes place during a flood and Sarah is a wife and mother that wants out of her life. She meets Jasmine who used to be a baby sitter for her several years ago and they have a heart to heart on the roof of Sarah’s home while waiting for rescue.I have also read 2 other full length books by Kevin Breaux and loved them also very much, Soul Born & Blood Divided – both fantasy. If only Kevin could write as fast as I read, because everything he has done leaves me wanting more.

    I'm not a big horror fan, but after a conversation with the author, he had assured me that this was not a full-out horror fest. I gave it a read and ended up being pleasantly surprised. I kept expecting something terrifyingly freaky (what with all that thumping in the night), but Kevin James Breaux managed to keep the scare-level just right. It's a story about human nature, of a person filled with thoughts of 'what-ifs' and life choices made. There is despair and regret, moments of joy, however fleeting, fear and guilt. It's also about plain and simple retribution - no matter the circumstances.

    Totally freaky, solid horror that's done with plot-driving intent, rather than with the intent to disgust the reader. Well done!
