This is the first book in the Shattering the Darkness Series. The story is about Harper Reagan, a beautiful woman attempting to travel on the path of a new life, leaving behind her horrid past. Losing her parents to a horrible murder as a child, being put into a broken foster care system and being abused by a foster father sets her on a road of no return. Living a life a prostitute, accepting this is her life with no way out, or so she thought until her savior comes to rescue her. Nikko Scott, a family friend helps Harper get out of her horrible life and helps her start a future , helping to keep her past hidden. Just when Harper is getting comfortable in her new life, she meets a handsome Adonis, Breccan Caldwell. He is gorgeous and wants Harper in his life, but will she let him into her past or will she walk away in order to protect him.
This book was filled with suspense in wondering what the main character will do. Filled with hot scenes of passion between Breccan and Harper. There were times when Harper’s indecisiveness to keep her past hidden from Breccan seem to drag out too long, but in the end, the author will make the read worth while, with a little cliffhanger into the second book.
This is Jessica Spoon’s debut novel and she is great writer. I enjoyed reading this book.
Book 2 of the Shattering the Darkness Series
This is the 2nd book in the Shattering the Darkness Series. Ascending Darkness, picks up from the first book Darkness Deserved. Harper and Breccan struggle to have a future together, but Harper’s fear of Breccan learning everything in her past keeps her from fully opening up to him. She is afraid to love again for fear all of her happiness will be taken away by someone from her past. Things start to happen to those she cares about, leaving her and Nikko to wonder if the one person she feared is back and knows where she is. As her relationship with Breccan deepens, Harper is starting to realized no matter what her past is, Breccan is never going to leave her and that love she has always thought she could never have is no within reach.
This 2nd book I have to say, was my favorite. Although the first book really set the tone to become familiar with all the characters, this book really gets the reader invested in the characters making you not want to put it down. Jessica’s description of certain scenes really makes your hair stand up and yet her love scenes are much more delicate, describing the love between the main characters, Breccan and Harper. In the end, I was pleased with where Jessica left the characters.
