The light to My Darkness is book five in the Hunted series but read very well as a standalone book for me!

Penny and James are expecting their second child and they both think they know the gender of their baby. They have a fun back and forth with each other. Penny believes she is having a boy. James believes they are having a girl. They have a three-year-old daughter and on the surface, things seem to be going great for this family.

Penny has been turned down by several publishers and is feeling insecure about her chances for success. She wants to make a name for herself and to be a successful writer. She wants to do this on her own, even though her husband could help her in this arena. She is also dealing with a health issue which she is experiencing during her pregnancy.

The book did start off slowly for me as I got to know these characters and the people in their lives. Then as Penny began to experience more and more health issues/symptoms the book began to pick up. The couples concern and frustrations over her symptoms felt very real and understandable. The book is mostly Penny but then toward the later parts of the book, the reader is given James POV which I really enjoyed and appreciated.

Then *BAM* something happens in this book that left me with my mouth hanging open and there is a cliffhanger….I imagine readers of this series will need to have their tissues on hand. That ending…UGH! It will leave many gutted and wanting to know what happens next.

This is my second Ivy Smoak book and I love how she manages to turn the tables and leave me asking “what the hell just happened?” because I did not see THAT coming! There is a twist and as I mentioned a cliffhanger that leaves the reader wanting more.

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
