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…

Excerpt 18+:

Makenna unbuttoned her jeans, pushed them down, and took them off altogether, leaving her standing there in an oversized, faded red and blue Penn sweatshirt that was just long enough to cover her panties. “You should get undressed, too,” she said, coming to Caden and starting on the buttons of his shirt. 

Press and release, press and release. Until she was pulling his shirt from his dress pants and exposing his skin. 

She gave a little moan and kissed the center of his chest. “Just like unwrapping a present.” She trailed a line of kisses and licks from one nipple to the other. 

“Fuck, Makenna,” he whispered. “What are you doing?” 

“Tasting you,” she said. 

The words were like a blowtorch to his blood. He was hard in an instant. “We can’t,” he said, though his hands went to the back of her head, encouraging her, guiding her as she continued to kiss and tease and drive him wild with her mouth. 

“We can if we’re quiet.” Slowly, she dropped to her knees and bared him to mid-thigh. She took his cock in hand and gripped him firmly, tearing a soft grunt from his throat. “I’ve been wanting you all day,” she whispered, her lips teasing his head with soft kisses. “Wanting to touch you and kiss you and hold you. I can’t hold back anymore.” She licked him from root to tip. Once, twice, three times. And then she sucked him into her mouth. 

It felt so fucking good that Caden’s hands flew to her hair, digging in, grabbing hold. She moaned at the contact and pushed herself deeper, burying his cock in the back of her throat. The intensity of it nearly took his knees out from underneath of him. 

Makenna pulled off his length. “Lay down on the floor.” 

He was too far gone to debate the wisdom of having sex in her father’s house. He needed this. He needed her. He needed the connection and the coming together of the act. Caden locked the door, took the rest of his clothes off, and spread himself out on the beige carpet. 

She undressed, too, all that beautiful red hair spilling around the bare porcelain of her shoulders and making him think of peaches and cream. And, fuck, he was starving. 

Caden grasped his length. “Take me back in your mouth.” 

He didn’t have to ask twice. Makenna settled herself between his legs and wrapped her lips around his cock. She sucked him deep and slow, than fast and shallow, her baby blues flashing up at him so fucking sexy. He needed to see her eyes, so he fisted her hair into a ponytail to keep it out of her face. He used his grip to urge her harder, faster, deeper. He needed it. God, he needed it. And she took it. She took everything he gave her and so much more. 

“Fuck, Red, I’m gonna come if you don’t stop,” he whispered. 

She pulled off him, her lips shiny and swollen. “I want you inside me first,” she said, already crawling up his body.

   Love in the Light - Teaser 2


There is one book that always delivers all the feels no matter how many times I read it. That book is Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye. This is the book that made me discover Laura Kaye's wonderful stories. Whenever I'm in a book funk or just want to read something quick that will put a smile on my face I always turn to HiD.  

When I learned that Laura Kaye was going to continue Makenna and Caden's story, I was in bookworm heaven! I always wonder what happens to my favorite couples once I read the last page of their story. LitL takes place about two months after HiD. Makenna and Caden's first encounter was quite unique and unforgettable. They got stuck in an elevator together. Since that moment, they have been inseparable. In this book, we get to see the ups and downs of their relationship. Caden's tragic starts to play catch up when things get serious with Makenna. Will he be able to let go of the past and take a step towards a HEA with Makenna? 

I can't even begin to tell you how much this book made me happy!!! When I finished reading HiD, I was happy with the way it ended. I'm an obsessed bookworm so when I love a couple to pieces I always want to read more about them. LitL exceeded all of my expectations! I knew that there was going to be difficult times ahead for Makenna and Caden. Each relationship is a roller coaster ride of emotions and Makenna and Caden's relationship is no different. I loved how we see them grow as a couple in this book. Each of their sexy, romantic, emotional and tender moments stole my heart. I had butterflies in my stomach just like the first time I met them.  

If you have not read these books you are seriously missing out! I highly recommend them! Unforgettable characters, amazing story and a reading escape that will deliver all the feels! 


I give, Love in the Light, by Laura Kaye, 4.5 sexy, heart-melting, captivating, wonderful, romantic stars!
