“He is the most beautiful man you will ever see. His soul will capture you, but don’t be fooled, Mi Corazon. He will use all his powers to draw you in when there is nothing left to do but take the one thing you’ve been holding on to.”
What began as an affair seven years earlier has since become a tragic love story, a tale of two souls fighting to be together with only their love to guide them. But as people make mistakes, they find themselves once again reliving the past, asking the questions that have remained unanswered. Until now.
Charlie Mason fought hard to rebuild her life and find love again. When the ever-so-perfect Julian Baker proposes marriage, she leaves the past behind her to plan a future with him. Then, in a cruel twist of fate, her past and future collide. Broken and scarred, Charlie is forced to face him once again, the dark angel who took the one thing she had been holding on to—her fragile heart.
Lex Edwards has other ideas. He wants her back and will stop at nothing, even when he realizes the Charlie he knew in high school has changed. She is a game player, and forgiveness is not on her agenda. A dark past threatens their future and the only way to overcome it is to relive the memories. Lex must take her back into the darkness.
Into the Darkness is Book 1 of the Dark Angel Series. This book was a necessary length to explain the past and the present. It explained the events of what led up to the present and how things got to where they are currently. I love how the story is being told from both Lex Edwards & Charlotte “Charlie” Mason.
The Dark Angel: “He is the most beautiful man you will ever see. His soul will capture you, but don’t be fooled, Mi Corazon. He will use all his powers to draw you in when there is nothing left to do but take the one thing you’ve been holding on to.”
An affair that started with young love became a horrific love story between two people who tried to let love guide their way. Mistakes were made in the past and will rearise.
Charlie Mason has gotten stronger and finally let someone love her again. Julian Baker proposes and she decides to start a life with him. Is this the change she needs to overcome her past? A twist of fate, allows that chance encounter to bring her past falling head first into her future. The Dark Angel has returned who stole her broken heart.
Lex Edwards will not stop until he gets what he wants. The one thing he hasn’t had all along these past 7 years. Will history repeat itself and Charlie fall for Lex again or will she stay with Julian?
This book was really great. I definitely recommend having Book #2 Into the Light, readily available. Once you survive book one, there is no going back. You have to know what’s to come. Every time I thought I figured out what was to come or what I expected to happen, I was left guessing. Will I get that HEA after all? Once finishing Into the Dark, I wanted to throw my kindle across the room. It was a cliffy! Stay tuned for Book #2 to see what is to come…
Into the Light (The Dark Angel Series)
by Kat T. Masen
Publication: August 23, 2014
He was the Dark Angel. He came and stole what she had desperately tried to hold onto: her heart. Charlie Mason thought she knew better until her insecurities overruled and she again believed he broke her.
In a bid to finally find their happily ever after, Lex and Charlie find themselves on a journey of learning how to love again. They began a new future to move forward from a broken past, but life is never so easy. When you finally have the one thing you’ve always wanted, what do you do when that place of darkness finds its way back, shattering everything you fought so hard to have?
This is the final story of Lex and Charlie, two souls that were brought back together in a twist of fate. An eternal love that has been through every storm, dragged into the dark abyss without a chance of climbing out, but through all the battles they find themselves in a place they call home, away from the darkness and away from the fear. With a glimmer of hope, they look directly into the light.
You must read Into the Darkness before attempting to read Into the Light. I say attempt because this book was awesome. I have never been so happy, sad, and from one extreme to the other. I had 3 emotional meltdowns in this book. It took me longer to read than probably necessary because I had to put it down when it got to me too much that I literally had to walk away and come back. The second time I put it down; I didn’t think I could handle anymore. I messaged Author Kat T. Masen on Facebook and said “but now i'm about half way through into the light and i'm balling. im scared its going to get worse again. but i keep telling myself i want to get through it, any words of encouragement?” She said “Oh hunny it does get better! They will have a happy ending I promise you that !! But you know how stubborn they can be so strap yourself in and enjoy the ride!” So thank you very much for your words of encouragement. I finished it and I loved it. Like I said, I had 3 crying spells before completion.
What was it about seeing Lex Edwards again 7 years later? Why could Charlie not trust her heart with Lex again? What hidden truths were there that were the truth to her physical and emotional scars?
Charlie & Alex are on the path of rekindling their love. Can you get two steps forward without going 3 steps back? Will having your dreams come true have the hurt of the past come crashing back down to destroy what they have recreated?
Into the Light is the final story of Lex & Charlie. They have been through hell and back. They have both been into the darkness. But who and what will help them find their light? The people of their story have not only been special to them, but the people who helped influenced their decisions influenced me as well. I will share this story with all my fellow reader buddies. I know they will hate me for putting them through the emotional rollercoaster, but they will love me for sharing this incredible story with them.
