So intense! Jace and Nova's chemistry is undeniable. The mystery behind their characters as well helped build my interest while reading. I wanted to know the secret so bad and the build up to the reveal was good.
I also love the family values factor in the end. I, surprisingly, cried for Jace's father and Nova's ending. Who doesn't love a good 'ole HEA?
Why 4 stars: I felt that I expected more. I wanted more drama and more crying. I wanted to feel more gutted.
All in all, Dark Hearts is a great story of second chance, love and happily endings. A book that I know I will not be ashamed to recommend!

"I’ve never been kissed like this before. I know it sounds cliché, but it’s true. He kisses me like I’m everything he’s ever wanted and hoped for. It’s a different kind of kiss. One full of fear, and longing, and regret, and passion. I never want it to end."
I love an angsty twisted romance that has well developed characters!
The storyline continues with Xander and Thea's wedding. Both Jacen and Novalee are dark, broody and secretive so it's not a big surprise that they live together, but are hiding that from their friends who are known to be noisy. The duo clicked it off from the first time they met in Rae of Sunshine. There was always chemistry between them, but more than that there was a mutual understanding that gave birth to this amazing friendship that's stronger than their individual friendships (Nova's with Rae and Thea, Jace's with Xander and Cade) and so the chemistry was put aside. But, you can only surpass some feelings for so long before they overflow you and that's exactly what happens.
I could tell you so much more about this story, but I'm not going to do it because I could spoil it for you.
It was amazing to watch those two people, who are so anti-love actually fall in love. With each other!
"No-it's just that love makes you weak. Look at them. They are willingly handed their hearts to the other person, giving them permission to break it at any time." - Jace ...
"I believed that once, but in my experience, it's not true. Love doesn't conquer everything,
it destroys you instead." - Nova
What I loved the best about the story is friendship, love and caring those two share for each other. The understanding. The passion. I loved how Jace can be possessive (not overly so) and how Nova doesn't let him be a jerk towards her.
"Dance with me?"
"You dance?" I eye him...
"I have sex. Dancing is practically the same thing. Just with your clothes on.
(With those two it is, lol)
I loved and found really heartbreaking their pasts. Especially Nova's. I could actually feel her pain and yearning.
"Night," he muses, a slight smile tugging at his lips, "the dark and misunderstood beast. People are afraid of the dark, but not the light - but it's the light they should fear. The light is where the real monsters are."
He's right. The real monsters are right in front of us, and we never even notice it. They slip by unnoticed, masquerading as normal people, but they can't mask their true colors for long.
Yep, Jace, Nova, and Dark Hearts are definitely my favorite! Can't wait for Broken Hearts to come out to see what will happen with them later!
They say they don't know us.
But they don't understand.
No one understands.
But I've figured it out.
We've got dark hearts, dark hearts,
and our demons won't let us go.
Just tell me how I get out of this suffering.
Just tell me how I forget this pain and be happy.
And the pain is pulling me under,
maybe I should give them names.
can my dark hearts ever go away?
This book is part of the Light in the Dark series and I love all the books (3 in total) of this series. I love the way the author, Micalea Smeltzer, writes as I have read mostly every book she has published.
Jace and Nova had intrigued since the moment I met them on "Rae of Sunshine." Their broody personality in that book make me so anxious in wanting to already read their story and I just couldn't wait anymore. The beginning of the book with Jace and Nova is so bada** with the first line "I f****** hate weddings." I didn't expect Nova's past to be what it was and to have both Jace and Nova's demons come together was mind blowing for me.
I recommend reading his book and all the books from this series because they are totally worth the time. (Come on, they're just three books. READ THEM!!!!)
