- Seduced in the Dark (Book 2, The Dark Duet)
on Sep. 11, 2012
Ah-mazing is the first thing that comes to mind. I was not expecting such an emotional roller coaster. There were times I found myself hating Caleb and other times cheering in his corner.. I hated what he represented and what he did to Livvie but in the end I wanted him to have his HEA.. As crazy as that might sound.. I was totally blown away. I can't articulate enough how much I loved this book.

What a raw, gritty, and unfathomable journey between Eva and Deuce.. I literally had to give myself a breather towards the end because my stomach was in KNOTS. That's how raw and crazy this book is.. The depiction in this story is so realistic and raw that you instantaneously connect with Eva and Deuce.. This book is a MUST READ!! 5+ Stars!!! Wish we had more of Eva and Deuce :-(

I didn't think I could possibly love Dex anymore, but obviously this book just proved me wrong. I love Dex, even more than before. I was completely smitten by this new Dex, and wanted nothing more to become HIS Perry. Words cannot describe the pleasure I get from reading Karina Halle's EIT series. I always look forward to any/all her books. She is an amazing writer!

HOLY SHIZNIT!! Dex's POV was brilliant. Just when I thought I couldn't love Dex even more he pulls out all his charm and has me totally *swooning* How is it possible to have so much love for a fictional character? He seems so alive and vivid with each page. I become consumed by his words and actions, allowing me to be a part of his world..
How can you not love Dex when he says "It all fades away when I'm with you. Everything fades until its just you and it's just me. I'm Dex and your Perry and I love you. I won't stop loving you, even when you won't love me. I love you more than I can ever really tell you. I love you until the end." *SWOONING*
- Color of Loneliness

OHMYGOODNESS..Susie stole the show!!
The heroine's best friend Susie does an amazing job. Her witty sarcastic, horny ass comments had me dying with laughter.
"It's because he's an asshole. Asshole brains don't work the same as ours do. Too much brown sludge."
"You don't know what a PTA is? Susie asks, laughing. "It's the old Pussy, Tits, and Armpits bath; you know, where you scrub your PTA."
Susie is the ultimate wise cracking best friend that is constantly cheering up her best friend Myra. The story revolves around Myra's chaotic, overwhelming, and lonely life. Myra is trying to outrun her past and her problems, when she decides to move back to her hometown due to tragic circumstances surrounding her. Myra is lonely and feeling depressed due to having no family whatsoever. Everyone in her family has deceased, leaving her all alone to face her own battles.
And here enters Dylan.
Dylan is the typical hard ass, angry, HOT contractor who has been hired by Myra to restore her house. But as time progresses so does their relationship buy Dylan is hiding a secret that he wont confess to. This secret will ultimately break them or tie them together.
The Color of loneliness is a great book for in between reads when you are looking for something easy and traditional. I tend to like my reads dark and angsty. So if you fall into this category this book wouldn't be your cup of tea.
Overall, the book was stress free and even paced, with no drama, until the very end and that's when shit hits the fan. So obviously, I will be jumping on the bandwagon to see how things pan out between Myra & Dylan.
