<— You GUYS!!! Guess what??!! THE CONTINUATION to the story… OH.EM. GEE!!!!!! Book #2 is (Love in the Light (Hearts in Darkness Duet Book 2) is releasing TOMORROWWWWW and I am TOTALLY reading it, and! Plus!! I have an excerpt for us to indulge in, right now. AND a giveaway! Did you guys know that this one is almost twice as long as book #1? YAY US!!! AND… it’s told in dual POV.
Why am I so excited? *gasp* ’Cause I totally fell head-over-heels in love with book #1 (Hearts in Darkness (Hearts in Darkness Duet Book 1) right?!! It’s a TOTALLY unique and fun and exciting and OMG super-steamy story about two strangers that get stuck in an elevator together. They are both in pitch black darkness, and didn’t actually “see” each other when they boarded the elevator, so they don’t know what the other looks like. And here’s the kicker. One of ‘em is claustrophobic so the other talks and eases them… AND!! They bond in the dark, becoming friends, and sharing secrets… but what happens when the lights come on? OMG what a BOOK!!!!!!!
Here’s my review and I remember every single thing about it and I read it YEARS ago, and I always wondered… whatever happened to that awesome duo of characters? Don’t even pay attention to the 4 star rating I gave it, ’cause if years later, I still think about the book, and remember the details and lost my heart HARD over the sweet potential love story, you know it’s really a 5-star. I probably only 4 starred it due to it’s shorter length, but trust me. Even thought it’s a short book, this one packs a punch, and has all of the needed detail to make us forget it’s not a full length novel.
MichelleF: I have to agree with Maryse, read Hearts In Darkness. It’s the first Laura Kaye book I read and it’s still one of my favorites!
JulieO: Maryse, you are right Hearts in Darkness is definitely a keeper for a short story. Would really like a sequel to it to see how things are going.
Anne: I read Hearts in Darkness and loved it!! I want more Caden! Can’t wait for the sequel to come out Dont know what to read next.
Tilly: LOVED Hearts in Darkness and am SOOO happy that there will be a sequel…
Jenny: I read Hearts in Darkness YEARS ago (like, 2012???) and can’t believe it took so long for a follow up! I have to re-read to get back into the story line.
Ready for that excerpt?
“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.
