Even At Your Darkestby AJ LoveAvailable Now on Sale this week onlyGoodreads
Life being Layton Parks isn’t easy. Everything she touches seems to just fall apart at her fingertips – the air conditioning, the coffee maker, her ability to say no. A push over at heart, Layton does what she’s told, when she’s told. With two jobs bleeding her dry, she barely has time to register the rut she seems to have fallen in. Despite this, she’s okay with her life. It’s simple and uncomplicated.
Until it isn’t. Kane Thatcher doesn’t need any help in being broken because he’s already a walking mass of shattered shards. Unlike Layton, Kane is no one’s Yes Man. After a split decision three years previous turned his world upside down, he’s finally living independent, with no one to worry about but himself.Until he isn’t. He’s curious about her, and determined to make her stand up for herself and be who she wants to be.She’s a little scared of him, yet knows there’s a softer side of him hiding behind all the hate. Will they bring out the best in each other, or will outside obstacles force out the worst? Will hate win over love, or will they be able to navigate their way through it together?
This is one of the things I love about being a blogger. Finding new reads, new authors. AJ Love is a new author to me and this book was a GREAT read to kick that off with. This definitely will not be the last book that I read by this author.
Even at Your Darkest is a great title for this book. Layton and Kane’s relate-ability makes this more than a book. It becomes like sitting with friends and listening to them talk about what’s been going on the last time y’all had caught up.
Layton’s growth was almost a physical thing within me as a reader. Like I slowly straightened my own back as Layton grew more and more confident (and powerful) within her ownself and overcoming her own struggles.
Kane’s growth was like watching the shell on an egg slowly crack to break away and reveal the real yumminess beneath. He started out all hard and almost close to being an @$$hole to that man that most women search for in their lives.
The rise and fall in this book kept you turning pages and allowed the believability to pull you deeper and deeper into these characters lives. This, again, was first book I’ve read by this author. However, it will definitely not be my last. Looking forward to reading more. Highly recommend this read!
