REVIEW – LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness, #2) by Laura Kaye



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…

*****Patty’s Review*****

She was the light to Caden’s darkness and had been since they’d been trapped in that elevator. If anyone could take some of the weight off his shoulders, if anyone could make it easier for him to breathe, it would be her.


I read Hearts in Darkness over two years ago and hell if I didn’t think it was one of the hottest short stories I had ever read. I thought that the story had ended perfectly but to my utter surprise I found out that there was a second book about to be released. This is the continuation of Caden and Makenna’s story.

We pick up two months after their fateful and scorching HOTrendezvous in that broken down elevator. Caden and Makenna are still going strong. Their passion for each other is even more SIZZLING. I can tell you that there are no shortages of panty melting moments in this one. Also there is PLENTY of ANGST!!! Hello, just what the doctor ordered!

Caden and Makenna have developed deep feelings for each other in a short amount of time. However, Caden is afraid of what he is feeling and how much Makenna has grown to mean to him. Life has been pretty cruel and unfair to him. He still suffers from PTSD, a result from the deadly car accident he was in when he was young, where he lost his mother and younger brother. He’s afraid that things are too perfect and life will deal him another blow by taking Makenna away from him. He also seems to think he isn’t good enough for her.

Makenna is crazy in love with Caden and wants to make her feelings known to him but she knows about his condition and that it could make him spiral out of control. Circumstances arise and in the heat of the moment Makenna reveals her feelings. Caden lets his emotions take him back into a very dark place.

Will he be able to pull himself out of the darkness in time? Or will he let the darkness take over and lose the one true love he has ever known?

If you loved the first book, you definitely have to get your hands on this one.

Love in the Light is due out on January 12th.
