About LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness Duet #2):
Two hearts in the darkness…
Makenna James and Caden Grayson have been inseparable since the day they were trapped in a pitch-black elevator and found acceptance and love in the arms of a stranger. Makenna hopes that night put them on the path to forever—which can’t happen until she introduces her tattooed, pierced, and scarred boyfriend to her father and three over-protective brothers.
Must fight for love in the light…
Haunted by a childhood tragedy and the loss of his family, Caden never thought he’d find the love he shares with Makenna. But the deeper he falls, the more he fears the devastation sure to come if he ever lost her, too. When meeting her family doesn’t go smoothly, Caden questions whether Makenna deserves someone better, stronger, and just more…normal. Maybe they’re too different—and he’s far too damaged—after all…

And don’t miss the first title, Hearts in Darkness, at 99 cents!
I bought Hearts in Darkness in 2012 and it instantly became one of my very favorite books. I’ve read it countless times since that first time and I’ve made all my friends read it, too. I marveled at how any author could get such a complete story in so few pages. I was amazed that a story that takes place in a 12 hour time span could be a believable love story that didn’t feel even a bit like insta-love. I adored two characters that fit so perfectly together and I wanted to know so badly what happened when they woke up the next morning. Three years and I never forgot these two. Turns out I wasn’t the only one….
It’s here….oh THANK GOD it’s finally here !!!
And guess what ????
It’s about 100% times better than I even hoped it could be.
I should have known!!!
If Laura Kaye can make a 112 page Novella feel like a 200 page book, packed with emotion, romance, humor and super sexy times….
then what she can do with 200 pages is damn extraordinary.
Love in the Light picks up a few weeks after Caden and McKenna get out of the infamous elevator. They are inseparable and forging ahead in a new relationship, trying to figure out how and if their lives fit together and if the connection they found in that dark elevator can survive in the light of day.
Two things put this book over the top for me. First, it’s the characters. McKenna and Caden are two of the best characters I’ve ever read, they are so real, so completely layered and down to earth. McKenna is smart, she’s fun, she’s intuitive when it comes to Caden and she’s all in. It’s refreshing to have a female character that is drama free, straight forward, open and honest and willing fight for the man she loves. Caden is amazing. He is the best good guy I’ve ever fallen in love with (in a book of course). He’s strong without being an alpha jerk, he’s vulnerable without being weak, sexy without being cocky, sweet without being sappy. He is the perfect man but he is still very much haunted by his past.
Which leads me to the second thing I loved about this book. I don’t want to give anything away, so I will simply say this. Laura Kaye tackles a topic that very VERY rarely gets addressed in the books I read and she does it to perfection, absolute perfection. I believed every single feeling, action and reaction. I empathized with both Caden and McKenna, I cried with them and for them. I understood where they were emotionally, why they ended up there and how hard it was on them both. I’ve have never been more moved or more impressed by an author’s ability to articulate emotions.
Laure Kaye has been on my Favorite Authors page since I started this blog. Books like this remind me why. The best advice I can give you…..read this series, then read every book Laura Kaye has ever written.
| So my awesome blog partner one day told me to read Hearts in Darkness as it was one of her favorite book. Seeing Love in the Light was about to be released I had to read them.
It did NOT disappoint.
Hearts in Darkness finishes at the end of the day, when they are finally out of this elevator. They bared their hearts, divulged secrets to each other.
Love in the Light starts right after this, they are now in a commited relationship.
I loved this book. I loved how perfect Mackenna and Caden are for each other. How they care for each other.
Thank you Kristy for being so enthusiatic about these books, I def would have missed a really really great love story!
