LOVE. SEX. MAGIC.

Before her 20th birthday, Gabriella was pretty much clueless about all three. In love with her best guy friend since the age of 14 and too crass and intimidating for most of the male population of Colorado Springs, love and good sex were virtually a myth.

And then there’s magic. Freakin’ magic. There’s no way that legend could have a place in her less than exciting life. So why after twenty years of utter obscurity do her adopted parents hit her with the ton of bricks that is her true identity? And how the heck is she supposed to accept all this and become what she was truly created to be?

Lucky for Gabs, sexy as sin Dorian is more than equipped to help her embrace these new revelations. And while everything about him feels oh so good, she soon learns that there’s more behind his crystal blue eyes, chiseled body and exotic beauty. Something dark, menacing and downright unnatural. Yet Gabs is in way too deep to even try to turn away from him now.

Dark Light, Book 1 of the Dark Light Series, is the raw, emotional story of a young woman’s journey of self-discovery in a world that was not meant for her. And her scorching hot, lip-biting addiction for the man she can’t deny, no matter the cost.

 

My Review

I COULDN’T FINISH THIS BOOK. I really couldn’t. My first DNF. It’s been on my shelf for a long time (yay I’m sticking to my TBR list for once) and it’s one of the few New Adult books on there, so I was looking forward to reading it. I was expecting it to be so much better. I mean, how long should I give a book before I give up, all the while resisting the urge to throw my Kindle against the wall? Because I gave it a whole 50% and I got absolutely nothing. I couldn’t read anymore. What a waste of my time. The characters, the story, the… Oh jeez, everything was bad.

HELLOOOOOOOO I’M FINALLY BACK! 🙄

I’m finally back and ready to get blogging again! 😀 The end of my semester was so busy and since then I’ve just been enjoying summer and hardly had any time to read anything, let alone write about it. I’m Fighting Destinyworking on a few things to post at the moment and I have to get back to everyones messages and comments, it’ll be great to see what I’ve missed in the past months! 🙂

Naturally, I’ve composed a new reading list for myself and I’m so excited to get into them!!! 😀 A couple of them have (shamefully) been on my TBR list for waaaay too long, but also I’ve found loads of new awesome books I want to read that I’d never heard of before! I’ve just finished reading “City of Heavenly Fire“, the sixth and final instalment in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare (review coming soon!), and I’ve started reading “Fighting Destiny” by Amelia Hutchins – looooving it. Think 50 Shades of Grey but with faeries and fantasy (a.k.a heaven).

I CAN’T WAIT TO READ EVERYTHING!!!

I'm so excited, I may vomit

I’ve started getting into much more adult genre books and am beginning of come out of YA, though I don’t mind NA! 😉 So the majority of these books are adult and are quite explicit so they may not be for younger readers ^^’,  and of course all the books are in the fantasy/paranormal and assassins (my latest obsession) genre! If you have any recommendations I’d love to know them! 😀
