Anna Lynn Blog Tour - Book Review

book cover art for Pulled by Darkness by Anna Lynn Title: Pulled by Darkness
Series: Finding Light Series Book 1
Author: Anna Lynn
Genres: Romance, Drama, Fiction

      After the loss of her husband and two children to a drunk driver, twenty nine year old widow Eva Hernandez sales her home and business. Then to only add salt to her wounds she attacks the drunk driver, lashing out in court, mourning her loss she is given the choice or jail or therapy.

      With her grief pulling her into the darkness and her anger surrounding her constantly, Eva begins to wonder if these court ordered therapy sessions will ever help her regain who she once was.

      Michael Williams, a professional licensed therapist has been assigned Eva’s case and instantly he sees more to her than the anger and grief that has consumed her soul. Soon he finds himself showing interest and Eva begins to open up.

      Never to have been one to break the rules, Michael suddenly finds himself getting involved and attracted to the foul mouthed Eva, who he believes that she just could be the girl worth throwing the rules away for.

      Determined to show Eva that she is allowed to have a happy life and love again, Michael will do everything he can to help her through her pain, adjust moving forward, and pull her from the darkness that has embraced her for so long. 

My Review:

     Eva is damaged. Being court ordered to anger management sessions does nothing to control her anger issues. Grief counseling barely makes a dent in her loss after the accident which ripped her husband, son, and unborn daughter from her life. The only thing that helps her want to heal is the love of a good man.

     Very emotional story especially for those who can relate to the idea of being damaged and fighting the healing process. While the novel could use another pass through by an editor the over all quality of the plot surpasses the number of errors.

I give it 4 star review graphic 4 stars!

Title: Shadowed Heart
Series: Finding Light Series Book 2
Author :Anna Lynn
Genres: Romance, Drama, Fiction

      Alexander Parker, the successful business owner of Alex’s Bar, has always felt as if he’s been missing something. With a past haunting him, his greatest fear is that he will end up going down the road of abuse and addiction, following in his parents’ footsteps.

      Melissa Lopez is a dreamer, with a passion for music and a voice of an angel, she collides with Alexander. Stepping into his bar and his life, Melissa finds herself drawn to him and wanting to mix business with pleasure.

      Alexander never believing he is worthy of love, Melissa must fight through his past demons, showing him that even a shadowed heart and tormented soul is worth fighting for, that he is worth fighting for and having the love he has always dreamed of. 

My Review:

     Alex was abused as a child and horribly afraid that he will invariably turn into his parents. He is so damaged that even the hope of a life with Melissa isn't strong enough to make him find his way to believe in his own goodness. It is his extreme love for her that keeps him in fear of the possibility of hurting her.

     Another excellent story by author Anna Lynn. This series can bring hope to anyone within her reading audience that damage can be repaired and pain can be healed. I highly recommend it to anyone with a proclivity to enjoy romance novels, damaged or not.

I give it 4 star review graphic 4 stars!
