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 just too different—and he’s far too damaged—after all…
LOVE IN THE LIGHT takes place two months after the elevator scene in HEARTS IN DARKNESS. Makenna and Caden are practically living together and despite some insecurities on his part, they’re both very happy. But it’s that happiness that Caden fears most, because everyone he’s ever loved has either died or abandoned him, so when he starts to develop strong feelings for Makenna, he has a hard time trusting it. Makenna is a very strong, loving and patient woman, which is exactly what Caden needs. She knows about his past and the nightmares that haunt him, and she does everything she can to ease them. But he’s kept from her how bad his depression can get, so when it starts to hit him again, he does what he thinks is best: he leaves. Sadly, it’s at a time when Makenna needs him the most.
LOVE IN THE LIGHT is told in dual POVs and is a novella, so it’s a fairly quick read. It’s part of a duet, so you need to read HEARTS IN DARKNESS first as it’s the story about how Caden and Makenna meet. This was an enjoyable read and I really liked getting to know more about them as individuals and as a couple, but this is not what I would call a light read. You will shed some tears, and following Caden’s downward spiral into depression may be hard for some people to take.
