#1    Rational Investment

Although, you won´t see me saying anything out loud when standing in front of a $25 book. I´d just wordlessly let a tear roll down my cheek and hope someone will have pity and buy me the damn book.

Book Review: His Wounded Light ( The Light In The Wound #2) – Christine Brae

synopsis book 2

The perfect life. 

The perfect marriage. 

The jilted lover. 

Their worlds collide.

Fate intervenes twelve years later and their paths intersect once again. All three will question whether the heart is truly capable of dividing and being divided; each will decide whether it matters who you loved first or who you love last. 

Together they will learn that in the end, there can always only be one.


My Thoughts 2

It´s truly a rare moment when you favor book #2 more than book #1. Maybe it´s because I read `His Wounded Light`( The Light In The Wound #2 ) by Christine Brae before I read `The Light In The Wound`? I´m not entirely sure but I will say this:his wounded light

I totally enjoyed this book. It was deep. It made me say “Oh shit.” more often than I thought it ever would. It´s one raw piece of romance that seeps into your bones and stays there.

This book confronted me with real life issues I didn´t necessarily want to be confronted with.

You know- Those situations where you have to make life changing decisions? The “What would happen if this and this or that would happen to you/to us…”

This book has those types of situations and it´s not pretty to read about. But even life´s ugly sides can turn an everyday romance into something great.

There was so much tension in this book. So much devastation and longing and fear. I´m telling you, it´s deeper than the first book by a long shot.

And that´s basically what I loved about this story. It has more of everything.

  1. The pacing was much better.
  2. The character development was great.
  3. The issues dealt with were brutally realistic
  4. The romance / romantic aspect was captivating

You felt the love between the main characters. You felt the nasties this couple went through because the author painted out a horrific picture of it all. She made me believe with the right words / the right emotions the characters felt. I know this because I personally have dealt with at least one of the included issues myself and have seen another of the included issues happen to close friends.

As much as I enjoyed this read there were two minor things that didn´t sit well with me.

  1. The third-party. I didn´t necessarily like seeing one of the love interests from book 1 in this book. He felt out of place. The story itself was strong enough without him.
  2. The rich people party. This is not really something to complain about because, in the end, this is just a story. But I would have loved it if the characters were more poor – middle class. Would have made the characters more relatable. Not all of us can just effortlessly buy a plane ticket and fly across the country to clear our minds.

As I´ve said- this is a minor issue. I just don´t like characters with money. I´d rather see them financially suffer, like the rest of us.  Lol.

All in all I truly enjoyed this read and do NOT regret having read book #2 before book #1. While I understand that this might not work for others… it worked really well for me ( because I don´t care )


Would I recommend this book? Yes and no. This book carries topics such as: miscarriage, depression, drug abuse, and cheating. I can see readers being triggered left and right. If you´re anything like me and can stomach any of these topics then I´d say- go for it! It´s a romance with a great ending.

Would I reread this book? Yes.


The Cover – 4 stars: An improvement compared to the book cover for the first book.

The Story – 4 stars: Call me a schmuck because I do love myself a angsty story that puts me in a miserable state.

The Characters – 4 stars: Again, an improvement! I even liked the Heroine a lot more in this one.

My emotional state after finishing this read: Happy I read this one first because after the first one I don´t think I would have continued with the story.

4 stars
