Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable…barely.
To the outside world she is just a loner with an attitude.
When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else.
Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that rival her own.
Two broken souls that can't be healed. They can't be saved.
Abby & Jake have to decide if they can accept the darkness not only within one another, but within themselves.
If they can accept each other for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn’t always found in the light.
Caution: This is not your typical romance. The story of Abby & Jake contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, sex, strong language, drug use, and all types of abuse.
The Dark Light of Day (A KING series prequel)
By T.M. Frazier
Not for the feint of heart.
The Dark Light of Day was grizzly, violent and dark…and I really enjoyed it. T.M. Frazier has an amazing ability to take me out of my comfort zone and show me a side to life that I never want for myself. She makes me happy to sit in my comfortable home, with my amazing husband and beautiful children knowing that the darkness she writes about, isn’t part of my world. I’ll take a peek-a-boo into that dark world, I just don’t want to live it.
I found it really interesting to read about Jake. I met him in the King series and I was a wee bit intimidated by him. There is no way you would or could expect that the violent, unemotional man could be the same man who is in love and devoted to Abby, the main character of this story. His patience and understanding of Abby’s emotional and physical scars were so sweet to read. Ok, sweet is probably not the right word when it comes to these two. See Abby is the perfect match for Jake. She sees things in a very similar way to Jake and knows that retribution and revenge sometimes need to be handled in a better way than calling the cops. It was scary how well suited they were to each other.
Now, this book is not for the feint of heart. Nearly every trigger warning you can think of needs to be attached to The Dark Light of Day. I find that I handle it a lot better knowing that before going in. My eyes are wide open to what I’ll face and I can compartmentalise better the “triggers” that I’m confronted with.
In regards to the audio version…I had no problems with it at all. I was a little disappointed that the male narrator didn’t have a bigger part, to be honest. His voice sent shivers up my spine…in a good way. The female narrator was really good though so I shouldn’t really complain. It was easy to follow along, understand and I had no problems telling when a character changed.
I really enjoyed listening to The Dark Light of Day and would have no hesitations in listening to another story with these narrators.
