Dark Light Dark Light 1 S. Jennings March 23rd Oh, what a difference a year makes. A year ago, the only family I knew of was Chris and Donna, my adopted parents since the day I was born. A year ago, I was content with mediocrity and my love life was non-existent- exactly what I thought it should be. A year ago, I was human.

Hey, at least that would have been a real twist, unlike the one we got in the book. Someone else had to point it out to me. The urge to skim bit me in the butt this time.
It pains me to have to write another low-rated review this week, but no matter how much I tried to justify the good parts of Dark Light outweighing the bad, I Dorian Skotos Dori Between the cringe-worthy terms, the excessive amount of character description, the ditzy lead character who used her vag for a brain, and the random placement of all things pop music - this book read as extremely shallow and immature for the amount of sexual content present.
Is Dark Light adult or NA? Who the hell knows. The second half of the book had enough sex scenes to qualify as mild erotica, but the main character is age The bones of the story reminded me of the Caster Chronicles Beautiful Creatures concept.
One young woman has to choose whether to be claimed by the light or the dark. What I liked the short list : A couple of the sex scenes. The possibility of real conflict in book 2, given what we know now. So much emphasis was put on looks. There was a lot of repetitiveness going on. At first, I thought it would be a treat to read a book set in my city Woodmen Road was mentioned twice when describing the location of the Jamba Juice, then in case we needed to know where on Woodmen the JJ was, we were informed that it was in Woodmen Commons I used to live 6 blocks from that JJ and never knew the name of that shopping center.
Instead of being driven back to her car, she was driven back to her car on Woodmen Road Gaby was not the sharpest tool in the shed. Give me hot sex when the time comes for a sex scene.
The rest of the time, I need some substance. Physical attraction is supposed to be used to build sexual tension, not as a means for a character to forget how to function when not with another person.
Karen Marie Moning can get away with this type of writing Some of her comments were downright disturbing as she acknowledged his tendency to violence.
But hey Whatever weird voodoo magic Dorian has, keep me the hell away from it. I could never be that blind, that stupid. It dates a book and often comes across as trying too hard to be relevant. There was lots and lots of smirking.
Dorian also licked his lips and smacked his lips. The sexual terminology was cringe-worthy. Waterfall of her release? Our rivers unite into a deep, endless ocean? And open legs.
