Synopsis: We were like two stars orbiting each other—dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same.
Least of all, us.
Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you’re Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother’s best friend.
Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they’re married— the strongest bond you can have as a couple—and they’re not even a real couple…unless they want to be.
Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander’s waited too long to see her become his and he won’t let her go easily.
If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he’s the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he’ll sign the papers, but until then…
All is not fair in love and war.
I've read all this author's contemporary books and one of her paranormal series, and I'm a really big fan of hers, so when I heard that she was writing a second book in the Light in the Dark series, I was really excited! I loved Rae of Sunshine a lot, and I was hoping that the characters in this book would get their own book, so I'm really happy that the author made it happen! After reading, I can say that I freaking loved this book! There were times where it made me grin like an idiot and then there were times where it made me nearly cry lol! It was very emotional lol! The plot also developed at the perfect pace and it only took me a few sittings to read! I was reading a few more chapters every chance I had and I absolutely devoured it! The plot also had plenty of really, really hot scenes in it! I wasn't expecting them to be so hot, but I was really happy that they were! I loved the few twist and turns in the plot too, and I wasn't expecting the plot to go in the overall direction it did! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Thea was the main female character, and she was someone who was content and happy with her life until she did something completely unexpected and her life flipped upside down! I loved Thea in this book! I could understand her resistance at the beginning of this book, but I was really happy that she gave her love interest a chance to prove that they could be happy together! Thea was also a very funny character and she did make me laugh quite a few times! I also loved her personality and she was easy for me to connect with! I just loved her! Xander was the main male character, and he was seriously hot! I just completely adored Xander in this book! He was such a lovely guy and he knew how to treat Thea! He always made sure she was okay and it was easy to see how deep his feelings for her were! Xander was also very protective of Thea and he showed this several times in this book! Xander was also someone who didn't want to disappoint the people he loved, so he did hide a few secrets in this book! I could understand why he did, but I wish that he had been more open because he deserved to be happy and in the career he wanted! I loved that this book was written from both Thea and Xander's point of views! I was hoping it was going to be, so I'm really happy it was! It helped me connect more with both characters and allowed for more things to happen in the plot! It was also fun to have Cade and Rae, who were the main characters in Rae of Sunshine, be secondary characters this time lol! I'm also really excited that this author is going to give secondary characters in this series their own book too! I can't wait to read it and I'll definitely be on pins and needles waiting for it to release! The cover for this book is stunning! I love how well it suits the cover for the first book and the models on the front are the perfect Thea and Xander! I love it!
