Every part of me yearns for Ryland and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that I don’t question if I made the right decision. Adjusting is something I should be used to by now but how can I do that when life has other plans?

I was beyond happy when I received my ARC of Grace in Darkness. I mean finally Ryland and Araya can have their well deserved HEA. And they do, but of course these stubborn kids don’t make anything easy and it’s a bit of a journey for these two to reconnect.
Both Araya and Ryland want one another. But of course, they feel like they would be holding the other back and think they are better off alone. WRONG. I loved how this book started. It picked up right where it left off in The Edge of Darkness. This was great for many ways, mostly because I didn’t have to go back and re-read the end of the last one to figure out where I left off, nope, that’s all done for us, with a bit of added detail.
Literally from page one, your back into the story like you never left. Araya is at school and crafting her talent, while Ryland is staying in the shadows not even allowing her to know he now knows her location. Araya is happy but not enough, not without Ryland. Eventually these two hash things out and though there are still many obstacles, including his father, standing in their way, their love is strong and able to surpass many obstacles.
I was happy Araya’s aunt was more of a thing of the past. I mean the poor girl has suffered enough at her hands and still is dealing with the aftermath left by the drama between Ryland’s father, sister and her aunt. Ryland finally pulls on his big boy pants and claims his girl. I wouldn’t say there’s a lot of action or even over-the-top drama in this book, but each page is exciting in its own right.
I’m sad to see this series end but I thoroughly enjoyed both these novels. Each was full of love, passion and a connection you don’t often see even in romance novels. I was pleasantly surprised with Ryland’s attitude and more importantly his behavior in regards to Araya. Sure she’s different, but not only does it take him forever to realize, he never once ridicules her or throws it in her face. He just loves her and as lame as it is, it’s a beautiful thing. Can’t wait to read more from this author…My Review for Edge of Darkness (#1)
His fingers wrapped around the back of my neck, pulling me hard against his
body. I knew what he was attempting to do, but his plan was backfiring.
My body sighed at the contact, and every curve molded against him;
desperate to feel all of him.
“If I feel you beneath me, I won’t
be able to stop Araya. I want you too damn much! I want you, all of you.
I want to be buried so deep inside of you, you won’t know where I end
and you begin.” His breath showered my lips with warmth.
“I won’t want you to stop Ryland. I need you, all of you, now and forever.”
“And the rest?”
eyes move over my face, flushing my skin with the intensity of his
gaze. The rhythm of my heart increased, because I know what he wants me
“Say it.” He growls against my lips.

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
I am the author of Flutter, The Discover Series! Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing.
Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado–but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother
& my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink and things that sparkle
(including vampires), I am a firm believer that chocolate cures ALL and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5) Okay, maybe I cheated a little with my list, shhhh.
