There is no Light in Darkness by Claire Contreras
I just read There is no light in darkness by Claire Contreras. I really enjoyed this book. Even though it ends with a wicked cliffhanger I can deal with it for 2 reasons: 1. the next book Darkness Before Dawn is coming out very soon. 2. The author wrote a letter to her readers at the end and puts your mind at rest by saying she understands your pain with cliffhangers and how "it makes you want to strangle the author" LOL her words not mine. OK, so Cole and Blake (love those names) are meant for each other. There is no denying that. It seems as long as either of them can remember they belonged together. However, there is some shady business going on. Their lives as youngsters is turned upside down and their lives change forever. We still do not know why but I'm sure we will learn the details in the next book. I'm not going to give this story away too much. It is a good read. Cole is definitely on the book boyfriend list. Yes, he has had some what of a bad boy streak but we never forget who or what he really wants. One of my favorite quotes from this book is: "Find a man that will watch over you. Don't settle for men who only have one thing in mind. If he doesn't like to eat, something is wrong with him. He needs to put you before himself-always. He needs to love you more than you love him. If it weren't for love, the suffering we experience wouldn't be worth it." Overall, it is an enjoyable read. Just a warning, there are a fewspaceissues throughout the book... (yes, I did that on purpose). You still get the gist of what is written. Just an FYI.
