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…
The PERFECT conclusion to Makenna and Caden’s epic and unique love story. Both heartbreaking and soul soothing, LOVE IN THE LIGHT took me to a place I never wanted to leave. A sexy, romantic, and emotional page-turner that had me smiling and crying at the same time.
Then it’s you and me, ’til the end. In the darkness and in the light.
Makenna and Caden no longer have the safety of being secluded in a dark elevator where the whole world is shut out and it’s only them. They have to share each other now, meet each other’s family and friends. And even though they are out in the world, one could only pray for the darkness once again.
A guest from Makenna’s past has the capacity to ruin everything, to question everything. Caden is a broken soul. He doesn’t want to mess this beautiful thing up with Makenna, but he knows he will. When it comes to her, he thinks of her as the light to his dark. She soothes his shattered soul, but doubts arise when he goes with Makenna to meet her family.
Makenna always knew when Caden was hanging on a thread. She is always there to guide him back into the light, but when things get a little too heavy and Caden’s grief becomes too much, that light threatens to shatter. The love they share is strong enough to overcome anything. They knew each other’s insides before their outsides. It’s that kind of love that will conquer the undeniable and unwavering grief from Caden’s past.
LOVE IN THE LIGHT took us on a beautiful and emotional journey about coming back to one another, making each other whole again, chasing away the demons that threaten every day. This is the happily every after they deserved.
[scroll-box]“So Caden said you two met in an elevator,” the tattoo artist said to Makenna, amusement plain in his voice.
“We really did. We were trapped in it for over four hours,” Makenna said, smiling. It was a little weird to talk to someone she couldn’t look at, but she couldn’t move while he was working. “In my office building. I rode it just today.”
“That’s quite a way to meet someone,” Heath said with a chuckle. “How come nothing like that ever happens to me?”
“Maybe you don’t ride enough elevators,” Makenna said.
The tattoo machine pulled away from her skin. Heath laughed. “I guess I don’t,” he finally said, leaning back in.
The needles hit a sensitive spot along her spine that had Makenna grimacing. Originally, she’d been thinking of putting the piece on her shoulder, but when she’d decided on the bigger size, she thought it would look better in the center. Heath had warned her that the central placement meant inking over bone, which could hurt more, and it sure did.
Caden braced his elbows on his knees so he could lean closer. “Want to play twenty questions?” he asked.
She smiled, knowing he was trying to distract her and appreciating the heck out of the gesture. “Are there still questions left we haven’t asked each other?”
“Probably,” he said. “For example, I don’t think I’ve ever asked you your favorite sex position.”
“No laughing,” Heath said, as Makenna tried to hold back her humor. Heat filled her cheeks. “Also, TMI. However, I like TMI, so feel free to answer, Makenna.”
Since the needle was away from her skin, she did laugh that time. “Okay, so maybe there are questions we haven’t asked.” She winked at Caden as Heath got back to work. “And, to answer the question, the second part of the night on my floor.”
Caden’s gaze went molten. He flicked at the spider bite piercings with his tongue. And that had parts of her going molten, because she knew how freaking talented that tongue was.
“Yours?” she asked, arching an eyebrow.[/scroll-box]
