REVIEW: T.M. Frazier – The Dark Light of Day
Warning: This is not your typical romance. The story of Abby & Jake contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, sex, rape, strong language, drug use, and all types of abuse.
Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable…barely.
To the outside world she’s just a loner with an attitude.
When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else.
Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that will rival her own.
Two broken souls that can’t be healed. They can’t be saved.
Abby & Jake must reveal to one another their most guarded secrets and discover if they can embrace the darkness those secrets hold-and the darkness within themselves.
If they can accept one another for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn’t always found in the light.
*stand alone novel, HEA in a twisted kind of way, no cliffhangers, no sequel
The Romance Vault’s Verdict – ♥♥♥♥ Hardcore gangster hearts!
Bloody hell I wasn’t expecting this to be as dark a read as it was! But I was drawn in immediately and kinda loved it in a bloodthirsty and shocked way. Even taking into account the oddities and typos and the fact the author seemed to love the time scale of four years. You’ll get that if you read the book. It’s a romance that is very dark and for the most part very disturbing but the connection is so readable and so real in your mind, you can easily place yourself in the yard, Nan’s house, the beach and even in the Church, it is a massively visual book, well I found it be like that.
But take heed the first line warns you to be cautious and heck that’s exactly what drew me in. I love books on the edge and boy is this book so on the edge of a mindshag (trying to say the F word ending here politely)! Don’t read this book if you cannot handle graphic bloodthirstyness, non-consensual sex, drug usage, murder and a man who thoroughly enjoys his murderous job. Parents that are shockers, friends that well, we won’t go there! But if you can handle being on the edge of a sinful vortex then you will (getting past the typos and oddities) really enjoy this book.
