I’ve learned that not everything is what it seems. If you start to look too close, you uncover things people don’t want you to see. It’s why I hide. It’s why no one knows the real me. But he sees me. He sees the darkness in my heart but he’s not afraid, because he’s like me. They say opposites attract, but we’re proof that like-and-like are a far more potent combination.
Novalee Clarke is hiding from a past she wants to leave behind, and Jacen Kensington is running from his.
The thing about hiding and running is eventually the thing you’re trying to escape catches up to you.
And when it does?
It changes everything.
Dark Hears by Micalea Smeltzer is the third book in the Light in the Dark Series and this one may just be my favorite so far. Jace has been a character in the previous books that has intrigued me but that the reader doesn't know much about which makes him all the more mysterious and sexy. I was excited to see that this book was his story with Nova.
Jace and Nova have a friendship that the rest of the group is well aware of but they don't know how close these two actually are, and that fact is something that Nova and Jace keep hidden. Jace is your typical playboy, not wanting commitment, thinking that he isn't capable of it. Nova has been hurt in the past and she doesn't want to look for love.
Nova with her crazy ever changing hair color and Jace with his books and nerd glasses are not the people that they portray to the outside world, and as the reader dives into this book, you find out just how deep these characters are and what makes them truly tick.
This book was a fantastic read that intrigued me from the very beginning to the last page, causing me to laugh out loud on more than one occasion. I would definitely recommend one-clicking it. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

When the Stars Collide by Micalea Smeltzer is the second book in the Light in the Dark Series but can definitely be read as a standalone. Micalea Smeltzer is one of my favorite authors every since I devoured the Trace & Olivia Series and this book was no different.

You know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you are Thea and Xander and you bring your budding relationship home in the form of two hidden wedding rings.
This couple and their friends will make you giggle, laugh out loud and shake your head while you follow their lives and their antics to see if the secrets that Thea and Xander keep will help their relationship to make it or will it end before it really begins?

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
