Title: Dark Light
Series: Dark Light #1
Author: S.L. Jennings
Rating: 

Love. Sex. Magic.

Before her 20th birthday, Gabriella was pretty much clueless about all three. In love with her best guy friend since the age of 14 and too crass and intimidating for most of the male population of Colorado Springs, love and good sex were virtually a myth.

And then there’s magic. Freakin’ magic. There’s no way that legend could have a place in her less than exciting life. So why after twenty years of utter obscurity do her adopted parents hit her with the ton of bricks that is her true identity? And how the heck is she supposed to accept all this and become what she was truly created to be?

Lucky for Gabs, sexy as sin Dorian is more than equipped to help her embrace these new revelations. And while everything about him feels oh so good, she soon learns that there’s more behind his crystal blue eyes, chiseled body and exotic beauty. Something dark, menacing and downright unnatural. Yet Gabs is in way too deep to even try to turn away from him now.

Dark Light, Book 1 of the Dark Light Series, is the raw, emotional story of a young woman’s journey of self-discovery in a world that was not meant for her. And her scorching hot, lip-biting addiction for the man she can’t deny, no matter the cost.
*Contains strong adult content.

Dark light begins when Gabriella turns twenty. Her whole world just got changed around. Apparently she's got a whole slew of things she never would have dreamed of. And when she meets the mysterious Dorian it makes everything much more interesting. Now, consumed with lust for Dorian and trying to figure out what's going on in her world, she is also trying to hide from the people who are trying to kill her or use her. She's got a lot to learn if she's going to survive with her new powers. 

This book was okay. The main characters frustrated me beyond belief. She was so smart, and cool, yet so stupid at the same time. I don't really understand who she could have been both but she was. Then there is the fact that the book felt it was more about her and Dorian get hot and heavy then it was about her learning things about who she really is, and what she's suppose to be doing. And, of course, it ended with a cliffhanger. I did like the book, but these things frustrated me a lot. I'm not sure if I will read the next one, but I do hope it is better then this one.
