Love in Darkness
Castles on the Sand
Love in Darkness is a great emotional read. The subject matter is not one that's mainstream. I like that the characters deal with mental health and other physical and psychological issues. And that it gives you hope. Though I couldn't really relate to the MC's plight, I did enjoy the angsty relationship he had with Madison. Though this is could be read as a stand-alone, I would have like to have read Castles on the Sand first to fee the full dynamics of their relationship. The other thing that I didn't care for was the book seemed somewhat religious, which isn't a bad thing, just not my prefered reading material.
The book was kind of dark, and it was definitely an emotion packed read. Though, it didn't pull me in as much as I would've liked, I would definitely recommend it!
