Synopsis


After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.

Instead of dwelling over her loss, she plays the hand she's been dealt without complaint. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life.

You don’t know true darkness until you've felt the light…
Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her dark existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to be alive for the first time.

At the edge of darkness, a ray of light, will dare them both to live.

Author Bio

 
 

Melissa started reading in high school when she found her mom's romance book collection and has been hooked on books every since. She became a complete book-a-holic, starting her own collection and improving her reading skills. Most of the time she could finish a book walking around the store, while her mom shopped.

She wrote her first short story in high school for a competition in her writing class. It was a child's book called 'Arnold' - it was about an ant who believed he could do anything. Oh by the way, she won!

She has written many stories since then, but this will be her first YA paranormal/fantasy and the first book she will have published.

She lived in Mesa, Arizona with her husband of six years, and her 3 beautiful daughters. They are her biggest fans and they inspire her everyday. She enjoys spending time with her family, weekend dates with her mom & taking vacations. Hawaii anyone??

Excerpt

 
I brushed my lips across her neck again and watched as the world around us, spun. Her fingers twisted in my shirt and she pulled my  body closer. I didnt expect you Araya.  I rasped against her ear and my fingers tangled in her hair, bringing her lips up to mine. Her breath was warm and sweet against my lips and I wanted to taste her so bad it hurt.
 

 REVIEW

 
 Wow.....I really loved this book!!! I honestly couldn't put it down. I was pleasantly surprised and I'm really glad that I got the opportunity to read it early.

The storyline is extremely intriguing and character interactions are perfect. I think Araya is such a strong person and I truly respect her. After her life crumbles around her, she still continues on without regret. Ryland is super dreamy. I'd love to have him in my life. They are super cute together and he really does love Araya.  The ending is super sweet ;)

I really love the way the chapters switch between characters. I'm a huge fan of getting into the character's minds as reading.  It gives the reader different perspectives while reading and I felt like I was there.  However, I'm not a fan of the same situation being repeated from both sides and that happened a couple of times, but nothing major and the story still progressed without stand stills.

Overall, I give this book a 5 out of 5 for a tough topic that was written very well and I really loved the characters personalities throughout.  Thank you so much Melissa for allowing me to take a look into Araya and Ryland's lives and I can't wait to see what is to come. Great job, you rock!!! :)
