Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, Abby 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 and 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 learn that love isn't always found in the light...

I have been blessed to live a pretty quiet life. I was sheltered from the darkest parts of what some people know as normal life. Abbey and Jake have been abused by the ones who should care for them. I was shocked several times. Every time I thought I had heard the worst of what they had been through, something else is revealed. I almost had an emotional breakdown. This books was gritty and dark . If you are a fan of Madeline Sheehan, you will probably like T.M. Frazier.

I liked it. It was well written. Good story. I dont even mind all the twisted abuse/killings. No doubt bad things happen by the hands of sick parents. My only complaint is the BS about foster care and the dead foster child used as a sex toy. This is where foster care gets bs rep. Bad things have definarely happened to kids in foster care but mainly from other kids that have also been abused. Rarely does it come from fosre parents but in those rare cases that horrible things have, this book has taken that and exaggerated it as far as anyone ever could. I couldn't believe someone would write that. I have been a social worker for many years and have heard crazy crazy things but have never heard of ANY cases where a foster family has ever been so sadistic, unrealistic and horrible to make people think this happens. Fiction or not, people try to imagine what they read is real. SMH I actually liked the book but I absoluetely HATED that FICTIONAL piece.

"We are all a little damaged, Bee. Some if us more than others." This was such a good read. Abby and Jake both have had to over come their childhood experiences. Both are so damaged. Neither can imagine being in a relationship, but the attraction is there and strong. "We were looking right into each other. Broken soul to broken soul..." Abby's story is very sad but she is a fighter and is strong. Unfortunately life just won't give her a break. Despite being strong and not giving up, she has much more to overcome. I won't spoil anything but there is a very tough scene to get through that completely broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. It was graphic but part of her story. As bad as it was, she held herself together and fought for her future. It was Jake that got through. "No good could come of who I was becoming. Jake had once told me that the most dangerous people are the ones with nothing left to lose. I'd already lost it all." Jake is a killer. He's a hit man for hire. He's twisted, and broken, and he's also got an eye for Abby. He shouldn't want her but he can't help it. He bares his soul to Abby and can only hope that she will accept him. But can he accept Abby in return. Their story is sad, tough, emotional, and just down right passionate. "I once wondered if two broken souls could heal one another. I hoped the answer was yes. We may not have been perfect, or even acceptable by anyone else's standards. But together, we were perfect. Together, we were just us. Battered and broken. Dark and difficult. Impulsive and scared." Over all I loved this book. Very emotional, and very well written. Lots of depth and great character development. I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys the darker side of love. "Sick and twisted Abby was in love with sick, twisted, beautiful Jake." "I loved all I him, the good and the bad, the light and the dark...."

Like a stick of dynamite this book was explosive. It started off with a bang and just got better. Truly loved the characters and the interesting twists that the author placed in the book. I am a ready that craves the dark side of romance novels and this book did not disappoint. The characters were youthful and it showed in the dialogue. But as they progressed in age you felt the age shift.

The only word to describe this book...amazing. It was heart breaking... raw... twisted... but utterly amazing! Up there with the best books of the year. Abby's story is truly heart breaking. I can't imagine the strength needed to survive her childhood. Jake has a troublesome story as well... losing basically his whole family. Two broken souls finding each other in a roller coaster of a story! Well written. Strong characters. Well edited... few mistakes. Definitely recommend thus book.

I read the book in one sitting and I didn't want to be disturbed while I reading it. Totally a book I will be keeping on my nook to read it again. I loved that Abby and Jake ended on a somewhat happy note, but I would love to have there daughter Georgia get a story of her own.

I received a copy of The Dark Light of Day for an honest review. The Dark Light of Day deserves like 50,000,000 golden stars or in my blogs case bats. Just wow! This book just blew my mind. I did not expect what happened in this book at all. Definitely one of the best books I’ve read this month. Abby’s life has gone taken a nose dive. On the day of her graduation she’s told her grandmother and only living relative has died in a tragic accident. Now alone and months away from being 18 Abby doesn’t know what to do. All she knows is that she’s not going back into the foster care system. When child services comes knocking on her door and then the Sheriff dumps her stuff onto the yard saying the house is going to be sold Abby is out of places to go. That’s when she meets Jack. Jack is definitely someone who Abby shouldn’t feel safe with, but she does and for the first time she feels safe. Jack takes her in, gets her a job, and finally gets her to open up about herself and her past. Within days he’s past the impenetrable barriers Abby has used for so long to keep herself safe. Jack has secrets too, a dark secret that makes him not only dangerous, but deadly. First, off The Dark Light of Day is not for the faint of heart. This story is dark, edgy, and full of horrors. Both Jack and Abby have dark pasts and honestly at some points I wanted to cry for them and take away their pain. They honestly are so perfect for each other and they get each other in ways other people wouldn’t. The main reason I loved this book so freaking much besides how realistic and the dual pov at times was all the character growth. I honestly love few things more in a story than character growth. Abby grew so much as a character from the girl afraid of touch to a strong independent woman who was taking care of the ones’ she loves. I honestly can’t express enough what an amazing character Abby is. Her strength is just amazing. She survives so much and honestly doesn’t see her own strength. She’s very innocent and yet not at the same time. I could go on and on, but I loved Abby’s character. Jack is hot stuff. Seriously. I know he has a dark past and a beast inside him that I’m sure he loves letting out, but he is also gentle and caring and sweet and perfect. I love him with Abby and while he is a huge jerk in one of the scenes he so makes up for it later. Jack and Abby are fantastic together. Even during their first encounters with their dark pasts you wouldn’t think this book or the characters would hold any humor at all but there were times in this book when I couldn’t help but laugh, sometimes at the insanity of it all. He smiled. “Yeah, I like it.  It works.” He held me tighter. “You’re under my skin, Bee. I don’t really care what’s under your clothes.” Jake thought for a moment. “Scratch that. I’d be pretty pissed if it turns out you have a dick.” “No, no dick,” I assure him. He sure knew how to break the tension of a serious conversation. I can’t say too much more because I don’t want to give too much away so I will say I loved this book and honestly T.M. Frazier has become one of my favorite authors. Cannot wait to read more of her work. Thank you so much T.M. Frazier for sending me a copy of The Dark Light of Day, this story and your amazing writing were life changing. Teaser: “This is where I buried my first body.” Swoon: Jack moaned into my neck. He pulled on my shoulder and positioned me onto my back. He lowered himself over me, holding my face in his hands. We were looking right into each other. Broken soul to broken soul.

 Wow...Blown-away by the intensity and the grip this book had on me from the very first page. Could not put it down no matter how hard some parts were to read. I felt every emotion the author conveyed. This is my first book by this author and it completely engulfed me from the beginning. Jake and Abby's love for one another is truly inspiring. Loved it.

I've read all kinds of romances, even dark and gritty. In fact one of my favorites is Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan. It is dark and takes me through a treachorous road, but I LOVE it. This one, however, is dark but too easy and ridiculous. Do not recommend it at all.

AN Amazing tear jerker

This book was over the top INTENSE! It took you places that were dark, painful and beyond reason. The emotions that you go through are extreme highs and lows and believe me there are no times when you breathe easy. You are so caught up in the story of these two lost souls that you cannot put this book down. There are so my OMG moments where you just sit there thinking did that really happen and what next. But through it all there is strength and hope so you keep reading. There is an intense HEA...THANK GOODNESS...because if there hadn't been a HEA I know I would have fallen apart. But then there is the epilogue...holy, cow what an epilogue! Like I said INTENSE!
