Dark Light #Review @MrsSLJ

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.
*Contains strong adult content.

Once again I am 50/50 about a book. I either liked it or I didn't. I am just not really sure lol. At times it just seemed like two different people were writing it. It drove me nuts at times. But on to the characters. Here we have Gab(nickname). She seems to be your typical 20 year old girl who thinks she may have herself figured out but it turns out she was way wrong. I liked her at times and at other times I wanted to shake her and tell her to get over herself. She just seemed so selfish and "me, me, me" at times that it got a little annoying. But maybe that can just be her age and all the stuff she was going through. I liked her better when she was so sure and confident and sassy. Now Dorian was truly an enigma. I could hardly figure him out, unless it came to sex. It seemed to be only then that you got to see who he really was. But then again the mystery seemed to draw you to him. I really do wish you got to know more about him. But of course back to the sex. It was just mouth wateringly hot. Ummm table for two please! Yummy is all I can really say and think lol. And oh how I just wanted to cuddle poor Jared, I loved him right from the start. Buck up buddy, your time will come. 

 As far as the writing and story goes. Well like I said, at times it just seemed like two different people were writing. Sometimes the writing would seem maybe immature and at other times it was awesome. It would push you away at times and then so quickly pull you back in. I may have a case of whiplash here. The parts that grabbed me though were great and they made me keep right on reading and had me asking what is going to happen next? I just have to know. So with what seems to be two different writers, interesting characters, hot sex and so much mystery, I just can't wait to read the next book.
