"They’d met after spending a night trapped in a pitch-black elevator together, and their bond had been fast and deep— built on conversation that had revealed how much they had in common and a physical attraction that transcended appearances."
Love in the Light begins two months later. Caden and Makenna have been doing great, but they still haven't admitted out loud that they love each other. Caden has no family, and has always spent Thanksgiving working so the other paramedics could be with family. But this year he is going home with Makenna to meet her father and brothers.
This is where Caden's insecurities begin. He was so down on himself! He immediately thought they wouldn't like him because of how he looked, with tattoos and piercings. When they were nice and welcoming, he was surprised. And when a little competition shows up, instead of being an alpha man and proving he deserves Makenna, his doubts grow and he begins to think she deserves someone "better" than him.
"He shouldn’t burden her with all the doubts and fears and uncertainties that had been building up inside him lately, should he?...
She deserves better than you...
And he felt so amazingly privileged that Makenna James maybe wanted all that with him. But he also felt undeserving.Read more ›
The precursor to this book, Hearts in Darkness, is one of my favorite books ever. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that this is the book that I've gifted most in my lifetime because I love it so much. I keep a stock of paperback copies of it to give away. As a result, I was so excited to hear that Laura Kaye was writing a sequel to it. BUT that's a LOT of expectation to live up to. Luckily, the sequel was really good.
The reason book #1 was so good was simply because the setup of the book was so creative. Caden is a guy with issues. He's worked through a lot of those issues in a physical way with a transformation of his body with tattoos and piercings. Something that played huge into the first book. Caden is an intimidating looking guy, but Makenna never saw him before the lights went out. As a result, she got to know the man before she had the physical impression of him. They fell in love, fast and hard.
This book takes place two months after that fateful day. The thing is, although Caden has worked through so many of his issues during his lifetime, those issues are still there...lying dormant, but still there. His new relationship with Makenna terrifies Caden. He's lost everything in his life that meant something to him. He loves her and knows he won't be able to survive it if he loses her too and he's sure that he will lose her. That's simply the way his life goes...so he goes into a downward spiral.
This book was so good, but it was also so heartbreaking. Caden's story is horrific...for a 14 yo to go through what he went through. My heart hurts for him. And that's the thing...Makenna gets him like no other person has before, but even for her, she doesn't realize the depth of his emotional scars. I loved the way that the story played out.Read more ›
Love in the Light begins 2 months after Caden and Makenna got trapped in that darn elevator. They’ve been getting to know each other more and seem very happy together. Makenna takes Caden home with her during the holidays to meet her father and brothers, and things get a little overwhelming for Caden.
Poor Caden! In Hearts in Darkness we discovered that this sweet, tattooed, and scarred man lives with an anxiety disorder everyday. In Love in the Light, how he deals with anxiety and panic attacks is pushed to the limit. If you loved Caden before, then you will fall for him harder this time around. Both Caden and Makenna go through so much, but Caden has to finally make peace with the one thing holding him back from happiness forever after.
Once again Laura Kaye draws out deep emotions in her storytelling. If you or a loved one live with anxiety disorder, then you will understand the severity of Caden’s pain. Laura Kaye gets these feelings right in the story, and it all feels raw and real. Also, Caden is a paramedic, and she gives nod to emergency first responders in a positive light. I love that! The undeniable chemistry between Caden and Makenna continue to steam up the pages, too. There are plenty of heart-stopping scenes filled with warmth and tender love that you will need tissues on hand.
Love in the Light is a truly satisfying and worthy sequel! I will read this over and over again like I did with Hearts in Darkness. Thank you, Laura Kaye, for giving us MORE!
