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…
We met Caden and Makenna in Hearts in Darkness and we were so happy that they stayed together after that fateful experience. I can say that I am not to fond of elevators and really do not want to experience getting stuck myself. But luckily Caden had the soothing ways of MaKenna to pull him through. When I ended H.I.D. I was patiently waiting to see what happened to these two and FINALLY Laura Kaye has graced us with this.
We see C & M very much together and falling for each other rapidly. It is really touching to read the care that they have for each other. But they are so nervous and scared to say those three little words. Its cute really.
We get to see Caden in his element while on the job to assist with people very close to Makenna. She has never been so thankful for meeting him. But Caden gets to far into his head when an ex-boyfriend rears his douche-canoe head. This causes Caden to go into a very dark place and even Makenna’s light cannot help him. He hits rock bottom and claws his way out and realizes who he wants. He goes to get his girl but the worst call of his career comes in and when he gets to the scene his world starts to crumble again.
Makenna is all in. She wants no one else, not even her ex after he professes his love. No, thanks dude, move it along! Makenna senses Caden retreating and she attempts to pour her light onto him but as she discovers a shock of her life, he is gone. One snowy evening on I-66 (let me tell you this road is evil in real life) and she is faced with a scary predicament.
I know what happens but you need to read for yourself. You will not be disappointed I assure you.
There is just so much love between these two and it is not so sugary that you get diabetes from. There is the right mixture of angst and drama and some steamy sex that you stay involved from the first word. The only thing that I did not like is that there was not more! There better be a third installment, you hear me Laura Kaye!
“So Caden said you two met in an elevator,” the tattoo artist said to Makenna, amusement plain in his voice.
“We really did. We were trapped in it for over four hours,” Makenna said, smiling. It was a little weird to talk to someone she couldn’t look at, but she couldn’t move while he was working. “In my office building. I rode it just today.”
“That’s quite a way to meet someone,” Heath said with a chuckle. “How come nothing like that ever happens to me?”
“Maybe you don’t ride enough elevators,” Makenna said.
The tattoo machine pulled away from her skin. Heath laughed. “I guess I don’t,” he finally said, leaning back in.
The needles hit a sensitive spot along her spine that had Makenna grimacing. Originally, she’d been thinking of putting the piece on her shoulder, but when she’d decided on the bigger size, she thought it would look better in the center. Heath had warned her that the central placement meant inking over bone, which could hurt more, and it sure did.
Caden braced his elbows on his knees so he could lean closer. “Want to play twenty questions?” he asked.
She smiled, knowing he was trying to distract her and appreciating the heck out of the gesture. “Are there still questions left we haven’t asked each other?”
“Probably,” he said. “For example, I don’t think I’ve ever asked you your favorite sex position.”
“No laughing,” Heath said, as Makenna tried to hold back her humor. Heat filled her cheeks. “Also, TMI. However, I like TMI, so feel free to answer, Makenna.”
Since the needle was away from her skin, she did laugh that time. “Okay, so maybe there are questions we haven’t asked.” She winked at Caden as Heath got back to work. “And, to answer the question, the second part of the night on my floor.”
Caden’s gaze went molten. He flicked at the spider bite piercings with his tongue. And that had parts of her going molten, because she knew how freaking talented that tongue was.
“Yours?” she asked, arching an eyebrow.
