Book Review: Light in the Shadows by A. Meredith Walters

Light in the Shadows (Find You in the Dark, #2)

(Find you in the Dark, Book 2)

How do you keep going when you feel like your life is over?

Maggie never thought she’d see Clay again. So, she attempts to put her life back together after her heart has been shattered to pieces. Moving on and moving forward, just as Clay wanted her to.

Clay never stopped thinking of Maggie. Even after ripping their lives apart and leaving her behind to get the help he so desperately needed. He is healing...slowly. But his heart still belongs to the girl who tried to save him.

When a sudden tragedy brings Maggie and Clay face to face again, nothing is the same. Yet some things never change. Can the darkness that threatened to consume them be transformed into something else and finally give them what they always wanted? And can two people who fought so hard to be together, finally find their happiness? Or will their demons and fear drive them apart for good?

The thing about love, is even when it destroys you, it has a way of mending what is broken. And in the shadows, you can still see the light.


"The thing about the shadows is that they're not all darkness. You need to have light to have shadows. So just look for it"

What an incredible sequel! Phenomenal!!

This book starts right where "Find You in the Dark" ends. What I absolutely love about "Light int the Shadows" is the fact that it's all written in both points of views, Maggie's and Clay's.. so you get to know first hand everything they both go through. You feel their pain, their heartache, their passion, their love, their fears... You just connect with the characters completely

"Just when I thought I had things under control, the reality of who I was smacked me squarely in the face. Being nuts was no fun let me tell you... my kind of nuts was scary and consuming... I was a far cry from being the man I wanted to be. But I was getting there."

"My love for this beautifully broken, yet slowly healing boy, made me strong.... My soul belonged with him, was so entangled in him that I was no longer a single being." 

"I love you, Maggie May Young. Always and forever." And then my mouth touched hers and I felt my future begin.

This book is mainly about Clay's road to recovery and Maggie's too in a way. How they little by little find a way to deal with the harsh reality of their relationship. They are both so strong and have a truly passionate connection.

"You are everything good in my life. Even when I thought all I had was the darkness, you were there. And you gave me something to live for. I couldn't let you go. No matter how hard I tried. I know now that's because to lose you would be losing the very best part of myself."

I absolutely fell in love with this book!! It was beautifully written!! And these characters??

They're just amazing! I really did NOT want this book to end, yet I couldn't put down my Kindle and stop reading! 

"It was just two people who loved each other, trying to make some sense in a world where there was none."

The Epilogue was one of my favorite parts in this book. What a phenomenal ending!!!!!!! It was very realistic and just perfect for Clay and Maggie!! Love.It.

I HIGHLY recommend both these books! There aren't enough words or enough positive reviews that can express just how incredible they really are!!

"For those searching for the light... Never stop."

Find You in the Dark (Find You in the Dark, #1)

(Find you in the Dark, Book 1)

Maggie Young had the market on normal. Normal friends, normal parents, normal grades...normal life. 
Until him.
Clayton Reed was running from his past and an army of personal demons that threatened to take him down. He never thought he had a chance at happiness.
Until her.
Maggie thought their love could overcome anything. Clay thought she was all he needed to fix his messy life. 
That together, they could face the world.
But the darkness is always waiting. 
Sometimes the greatest obstacle to true love is within yourself.
