Release Blitz & Book Review- Dark Hearts by Micalea Smeltzer

Title: Dark Hearts
Series: Light in the Dark #3
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 24, 2017


I’ve learned that not everything is what it seems. If you start to look too close, you uncover things people don’t want you to see. It’s why I hide. It’s why no one knows the real me. But he sees me. He sees the darkness in my heart but he’s not afraid, because he’s like me. They say opposites attract, but we’re proof that like-and-like are a far more potent combination. 

Novalee Clarke is hiding from a past she wants to leave behind, and Jacen Kensington is running from his. 

The thing about hiding and running is eventually the thing you’re trying to escape catches up to you.

And when it does?

It changes everything.

Nova Clarke is a bit of a mystery. She hides from a past. She only lets her friends see what she wants them to see. Hiding behind her camera and her ever changing hair color. The exception is Jace, her best friend. He see's more than their other friends do. She lets him get close, but not to close. He may already see her more than she wants. But she has a deeper connection with him. They are similar. They each hold secrets, pain, heartbreak, and put up walls. But when they are together those walls slowly crumble. Lately Nova finds the feelings she holds for Jace growing stronger. But she fears if they act on the attraction between them it could ruin their friendship and that friendship means the world to her.

Jace Kensington ran from a life he hated. He distanced himself as much as possible. Bartending, writing music, smoking and covered in tattoo's, furthers himself even more from that past. And the muse of his music, Nova Clarke, his best friend, a girl who has his heart, but he doesn't know it yet. Jace does not believe in relationships, or getting to close. But with Nova, he finds himself thinking about, love, commitment. He see's something in Nova, just as she see's something in him. They are no two people more perfect for each other. But will their past, overshadow them being together before they can even really give it a chance?  

Two beautifully broken people who souls call to one another. Dark hearts is the kind of story that captures your attention from page one. It is a fantastic story of love, pain, second chances, and friends who are more like family. It is for sure my favorite in the series. 

Nova & Jace are everything. Together these two are explosive. Beautiful, and oh so sexy. Their banter, the sweet moments woven between the swoon-worthy sexy times, will give you butterfly's. 

Author Bio

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
