Warning: This is not your typical romance. The story of Abby & Jake contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, sex, strong language, drug use, and all types of abuse.
Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable…barely.
To the outside world she's just a loner with an attitude.
When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else.
Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that will rival her own.
Two broken souls that can't be healed. They can't be saved.
Abby & Jake must reveal to one another their most guarded secrets and discover if they can embrace the darkness those secrets hold-and the darkness within themselves.
If they can accept one another for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn’t always found in the light
TDLoD is a wonderfully effed up dark romance! The story starts with one of the worst days of Abby's life, the day of her graduation. She finds out her grandma died, and not quite being 18 years old, she is forced to find a home or run from the foster system. Abby has had one of the worst childhoods imaginable, surely this couldn't be too bad.. right?
Then she meets Jake, his life definitely isn't sunshine either. With a father that wants to kill you and secrets that you'd kill to keep, he is not quite whole either. He takes Abby in and the two scarred souls try to soothe each other. But when the darkest day comes will they may not be able to find the light with each other.
This was a truly dark read at times, I felt sick and depressed for the things that happened in both of the characters lives. Just when it seems they could find happiness things totally goes to shit. This was such an angsty rollercoaster. There were some smexy scenes that were great. I think Frazier did a wonderful job writing this book, I couldn't stop reading it once I started. I think the cover could use some work, yet it very much pertains to the content of the book, but it's not something that would scream, "Read Me."
The ending.. it was awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better outcome, with the cards that had been dealt. I was glad that there was a good resolve with most of the major conflicts in the book. I liked Abby's character too, she was broken but a trooper. I honesty can't say that I would've had the courage to keep going, as she did. And Jake, I love a bad boy with a heart of gold, that's only for you. He had a hidden sweet side that definitely could make you swoon.
Overall, I would highly recommend it. In fact, it will probably make it on my re-read list, it was that good!
