Book Review: Love in the Light by Laura Kaye

Love in the Light 
(Hearts in Darkness Series,  #2)
by Laura Kaye

Blurb: 
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…

Viviana's Review: 

The highly anticipated, the OMG I can’t believe it’s finally here” continuation of the “Hearts in Darkness” series.  Readers love the first novella in the series “Hearts in Darkness” for not only the brilliant writing but the depth of emotions it made the reader feel.  Each character had their own unique strength and vulnerability and NO ONE ever looked at an elevator the same again.  Thank you Laura Kaye!

I will admit to being a tad bit worried about “Love in the Light”.  Let’s be honest, many times we have extremely high expectations or believe they should be a certain way with characters we love.  Authors are unique creatures who love what they do and many love to please their fans and write that additional scene or give us a glimpse of what’s going on with the characters in another book, and it’s great.  It works.  Sometimes authors force it, and the results are not so great.  I’m extremely happy that “Love in the Light” was one of those instances that it was a great read.  Though readers have been asking for this for years  - Laura took her time for various reasons, and the result is a story that is true to the characters and one that readers still enjoy.

Wouldn’t necessarily say this could be read as a standalone, but I think if you happen to pick this up first you definitely will want to read book 1.

Makenna and Caden are still going strong 2 months after meeting and falling for each other.  Like with any relationship next steps come into play and when your past is still haunting you  - doubt isn’t your friend.

“Love in the Light” was a great read and one that illustrates Laura’s talent for storytelling.  Readers will not be disappointed - in fact I am sure they will be requesting the third installment (hint hint) LOL.
