✰ Book Review ✰ LIGHT IN DARKNESS by Brandy L Rivers


LIGHT IN DARKNESS
Author: Brandy L Rivers
Series: Others of Edenton: Book 6
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Sometimes light comes from the darkest shadows…

Lincoln, having been sheltered his whole life, is finally finding his path after losing his mother. Gaining confidence isn’t easy, but he can’t resist going after the woman he craves.

Victoria believes she is a monster. Her past is full of darkness and pain, horrors she would protect Lincoln from. Pushing him away proves harder than she imagined now that his heart is set on her.

A secret is revealed when a group of Other hunters come searching for Victoria, putting Lincoln in danger.

Will darkness consume Victoria? Or will Lincoln’s light show her the truth?

 

Brandy L Rivers is one of the few authors that I completely trust when writing books. Anything she publishes, I will buy. Anything. Her writing style is just so…captivating, intriguing, AMAZING. I can’t help but get lost in her stories!!! It truly is wonderful. She can write some SEXY scenes like no other and at the same time, she can give you some action-packed scenes that make you feel like you are not turning the pages fast enough!! Gah!! It really feels like an escape from reality when I’m reading one of her books. Light in Darkness was no different.

That prologue!! Gosh! It made my heart MELT and then ACHE. *Sigh!* Suffice it to say, right off the bat, I was hooked. I did not want to put down my book. Nope. I wanted to sit in bed all day and read Lincoln and Victoria’s story.

 “He’s pure light and I’m shadows and evil.”

It was SO refreshing to read a book where the hero was the good guy and the heroine, the “broken” one…sort of. Victoria considered herself to be evil and all kinds of BAD. Her internal battles were very much present. She was extremely hard on herself because of her past, but Lincoln didn’t care about any of that. He was this very sexy gentleman that WANTED Victoria. He loved her for her. He saw past everything.  He saw her.

Loving someone was a new feeling for Victoria and loving Lincoln was kind of tearing her up inside. She knew he was different. He was SPECIAL and she did not want to “ruin” him. She would not allow herself to be that selfish. Thing is, she was NOT a bad person…at all. She just didn’t give herself any credit. Victoria was actually VERY nice and selfless.

“You don’t want to know my darkest secrets, Lincoln. I don’t want you to hate me as much as I hate myself.”
“Then you don’t know me very well. I can’t imagine hating you.”

*Sigh…* When it comes to romance, Brandy L Rivers can sure make her readers swoon…and squirm. ;) But when it comes to drama, action, and suspense, she nails it very well too! In this installment, we saw the Others of Edenton face a new enemy – HARP. Talk about feeling like I was at the edge of my seat!!!!!! Boy oh boy!

This series honestly, keeps getting better and better. Just when I thought the last book I read was the best, Ms. Rivers publishes another masterpiece. If you haven’t yet, one-click this SERIES. While I’ve read them out of order and that has NOT diminished the AMAZINGNESS of each book, I would recommend reading them accordingly. It will make the experience even better. Every book in this series is a MUST read!!! FIVE WONDERFUL STARS.

She looked, then leaned into him with a happy sigh. 
“My Angel.”



~ BOOK EXCERPT ~
Dazed, Lincoln stood in front of Victoria, sure he was dead. All he could see was white light, and her beautiful dark eyes filling with tears as her mouth moved.

Then she shoved him, and the world started to come back into focus, darkness seeping into the white. “Lincoln, are you all right? Are you hurt?” she yelled.

Blinking, he rolled his shoulders and the cocoon of white flexed and unwrapped. The weight of his… Wings?

Wings!

Oh boy, they’re heavy.

His head jerked to the side as his wings stretched, white feathers shimmering in the moonlight. He couldn’t do much more than stare.

Letting go of Victoria, he stumbled back and started to fall, but on instinct his wings flapped and he found himself rising into the air.

His chest heaved in great pants that did nothing to slow his heart or calm him.

Victoria caught his hands and pulled him back to the ground with a peculiar awe-struck look on her face. “Are you hurt?” she asked softly.

“Don’t think so,” he answered lamely, afraid to move and start flying? Again. “I’m not sure what happened.” Reaching up, he felt behind him, finding where the big, powerful wings connected to him. Somehow, his shirt was fine and Lincoln wasn’t sure what to think. “How?”

“Shh,” she uttered, then reached into her car to grab her phone. “Let’s find out what the hell happened. I’ll call Slater.”
