Darkness Matters


Darkness Matters was a good read with characters that you find yourself engaged with. The two main characters in this book have a past and we are not exactly sure what that is but you do have this feeling that it's not pretty and its full of heartache and pain. Noah, I wouldn't say he was shy but he definitely closed himself off from others. Andie's story I think we have an idea early on of what is happening or at least we think we do. These two clearly have an attraction to one another, their interactions are cute and they dance around each other like you would with a high school crush. Their pasts preventing them from acting upon their feelings. Jay McLean does such a good job with writing books that have angst and this one is no exception. While it's not an overwhelming angst it is one that definitely makes you feel the story, the emotions, the ups and downs and when things are revealed it hits you even harder because well I just didn't see some of the parts coming and they added to their story and gave me an understanding of the hesitation between them. I did find myself at the end however tapping my screen because I wanted more, I felt a bit that I needed more of an ending. I will say though that this was a great read. I continue to enjoy her books and will continue to read anything she puts out.

It’s the same old story, really.

Good versus evil.

Heroes versus villains.

Light versus dark.

For two years, college freshman Noah Morgan lived his life somewhere in the middle, fighting darkness and light, always searching for answers to a single question:

Why, Noah, why?

The same three words keep him up at night, struggling for air while gripping a plastic cylinder containing white pills to match the white label with his name printed in ink as deep and dark as his memories—memories that turned him into a recluse.

A shut-in.

An introvert.

Luckily for him, that’s not how the girl next door sees him.
