I really enjoyed this book and feel it is a great beginning of an intriguing series. Jem is a likable character who grabs your interest from the very beginning. She lives with a husband who is a self-absorbed abuser. It is all very subtle with isolating her from others to telling her what she should wear. She has dreams about werewolves that feed her imagination and help her escape the sameness of her structured life. She never expects her dreams to have an element of truth that will affect her waking world. This is a fun ride with good guys and bad guys and loads of action. There is also significant brutality and a complex set of characters with some wonderful world building. My only dissatisfaction is with some of Jem's compulsive behaviors, which made me angry and want to smack her and tell her to snap out of it, but in my opinion this is a real sign of a well written story; that I could become so emotionally invested. I also had some unanswered questions at the end of the book of what about so and so what happened to him/her? and hope the upcoming installments will resolve this. I would definitely recommend this book to adult readers. I purchased this book.

Darkness & Light is the first book in the Holloway Pack series. Although many characters are introduced, this book is mainly about Sean and Jem. When the story starts, Jem is married to a complete jerk named Peter. For eight years, she has basically been a submissive housewife catering to Peter's demands and abuse. He even picked out her clothing to wear.....way to controlling. Peter is a piece of work and all throughout the book, I was wishing that horrible things would happen to him.

Jem has been having dreams that she is a werewolf and making an appearance in her dream world is Sean. While she has no clue what the dreams mean or who Sean is, they definitely make her curious and provided some escape from her boring life. Little does she know, but the dreams are from real events that took place in her other life.

This is my favorite quote from the book and it really captures the theme of the story:

"Fate and destiny to hand in hand. It is impossible to change our destiny. Only the path upon which we walk to reach our destination alters. If we should stray from that path, fate will take control and guide us in the right direction."

Jem is quite the character. I was either loving her or hating her. Half the time, she isn't listening and heeding the advice that is given to her, and she is way to compulsive, which of course lands her in trouble throughout most of the book. I will say though that by the end, Jem did become the strong, independent woman that I had hoped she would become.

Sean came across as overbearing at times, but I really tried to understand the situation he was in, so I gave him a pass just hoping that he was not going to be a repeat of Peter. Sean is over the top good looking, sexy, strong and well, he's a werewolf.

I loved this story.

Honestly, I was a bit leary when I realized Jem was already married when she meets her soul mate. Being a happily married girl, I would have a hard time accepting the idea of her leaving her husband for another man, but Belfield does a great job of making Peter, the husband in question, horrible enough that merits Jem leaving him with or without Sean in her life.

Jem really grows and develops as the novel progresses. The Holloway pack loves and nurtures Jem, allowing her to discover her true self. Their support allows these changes, which do occur rather quickly, to seem natural.

There's a couple of times when I found myself thinking, "wouldn't it have made more sense if Jem just...." I can't really call these story flaws as there's many times when I actually do do something that doesn't make the most sense.

I loved Jem and how her pack cherishes her. I liked Sean, but his character felt slightly flat to me. I plan on reading "Fated Encounter" which reads from Sean's point of view. I think that will help me connect more with Sean.

Overall great story of which I can't wait to read more.

Darkness & Light starts off with Jem married to this a****** named Peter. Her husband didn't begin this story as a complete dummy but the speed at which he progressed from "there's something off about this guy" to full-out "run for your life!" was staggering. I found it weird that it took 8 years for Peter's crazy to surface in their marriage. Mind you, Jem seemed a little out there as well but in a wolf-like kind of way so I was ok with that. Her definition of what it means to be a wife was simple, instinctual almost in nature but in a human it still came across as a little odd. The werewolf fan in me understood that wife does equal food and sex provider in the wild but my feminist side had a hard time connecting with Jem because of her willingness to stay with and even defend her abusive husband.

I enjoyed the way that the chapters were divided into "Light" and "Dark"; the first being Jem's real life and the second being her werewolf dreams. The blurb gives you a pretty good idea of what this all means. Jem's dreaming about her past lives and eventually (as was bound to happen) they collide when she meets Sean. I also really liked Belfield's werewolf prophecy; it's complex, unique and I quickly found myself getting sucked in by her Holloway Pack universe. J.R's beautiful, descriptive writing style definitely played a huge role in my overall enjoyment of this novel as well. My only complaint is that more fat could have been trimmed from this story because it ran a little unnecessarily long.

Jem continued to rub me the wrong way right up until the very end, even after she'd accepted her new reality. Her naivety only seemed to escalate after all that unpleasantness with Peter.
