Synopsis (From Goodreads)
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
My thoughts on The Dark Light of Day
I have to say that I thought I have my favourite book by this author already in the bag but damn I was prooved wrong.
Honestly I don’t know how to describe my feelings about this book because it was so great that I was struck speachless, not only because of the way she wrote the story, but because the characters were so relatable in some ways that I just… was speachless.
Jake it’s a torture soul and I have to say that the man can do a lot of wrongs but he also can do a lot of rights. Actually, undestanding his reasons for doing the things he did for a living was not hard at all, at least for me, and that it’s saying something right there. He was the real deal, with the scars and blood to proove it, he was real, he was down to earth (even when he did dumb stupid shit) and I love the ever loving fuck out of that.
Abby had the hard life thown at her time and time again. Not only because of her parents, but because of what kept happening to her even after she was with her grandmother, but she survived it all and if she was a real person I would be so proud of her like you have no idea. She was strong even when she was not being strong, even after life beat her to an inch of what she could take, at the age she was, she was still strong inside and that is what I would call an amazing female.
This author’s writing style it’s not for the faints of heart, or people who can be triggered by strong bad situations (abuse, rape, suicide, etc.) because she doesn’t do anything else than tell it how it is, as ugly as it is, no matter what. She is honest. She does not suggar coat things in this book and I don’t have enough good things to say about that. It was refreshing for me to read such a thing even when the toppics are not nice in the least.
“Did you ever stop to think it might be whores like yo who put every nasty bit of their ugly shit out on display for the world to see that disgust me so much I feel the need to cover myself up so I don’t wind up single, with seven kids, barhopping every night when I’m well into my sixties?“
“I have no doubt that when I meet my end, I will descend into the hell that’s been saving me a spot in its torturous embrace since the day I was born. I also know that when I get there, I’m going to spend my time finding Owen and killing him over and over again“
