HmmmReid Hennigan fled his pack and his family when he learned of the death of his cruel leader uentin Lyons He would take his chances in the human world He would never be subservient to another cruel pack master Nope he would enjoy the world and all the human women Besides all he really wants is to satisfy his libido and although human women seemed far too high maintenance for him he could still use them to scratch his itch Yep just sex that's all He wanted to play the field never get serious and never take a mate Until he touched that blasted plate until her Why did he have to go in that restaurant? He just can't understand this inexplicable attraction to this woman this lightbearer this Carley He just wanted to have sex with her and get it out of his system Right?

You'll just have to read the book to find out No spoilers here but I will say this Handsome sexy shifters check Beautiful lightbearer chef check Wonderful cast of new and familiar characters check Danger drama adventure suspense and heinous enemies check Magic heated attraction fiery passion angst and sweet romance you bet I loved it I can hardly wait to see who's next in the series and just what mischief Tami will cook up for us next Get it? Cook up??? Another little bit of my horrible humor I have read all three books of the series and can guarantee that I will be reading all the others Although it would be helpful to read the first two I don't think it's absolutely necessary in order to enjoy this book but it certainly would enrich the reading experience Fabulous entertainment and an amazing read Light Beyond the Darkness Book Three Lightbearer series by Tami LundWhat a uniue concept Lightbearers are magical beings that replenish their magic from sunlight Without the rays of the sun a Lightbearer will eventually die They have been hidden away for over five hundred years never seen but the myths still survive They hid from the Fae who created them and the Shifters who want their magic Now that the Lightbearer Princess Olivia has mated with Tanner Lyons a wolf shifter a pack master’s son their peaceful life has been turned upside down Dawning of Light Book 2 in the Lightbearer series picks up where Into the Light ends Princess Olivia is carrying the heir to the Lightbearer throne and her cousin and best friend Cecilia Druthers keeps getting into trouble Tanner assigns Finnegan to keep Cecilia out of trouble but sparks fly between this “odd couple” In Light Beyond the Darkness the third book in the Lightbearer series Carley Santiago has left the coterie the hidden home of the Lightbearers to hide in the human world of Chicago When Carley meets Reid Hennigan a wolf shifter with no pack all the fears that drove her from her home find her again in Chicago Will Carley and Reid be able to overcome the scars that have damaged their abilities to love? What are the secrets that they both are hiding? Who is it that forced Carley to leave the only home she had ever known? Will Carley learn to feel the passion that Reid has tried to show her?I love this series so much I highly recommend that the series be read in the order written as much history is learned and people met that will play a part in books to follow Tami Lund has created a new supernatural creature with the Lightbearers Just when I thought I had the story all figured out the twists and turns of the plot kept me reading late into the night Tami’s characters obviously speak to her as she is able to show us their darkest fears and greatest expectations The story has adventure suspense incredible fightsviolence and HOT sexual situations This is a love story This is a story of two people learning to trust to love and to believe Tami Lund's dedication of Into the Light touched me For you because you want to believe too I believe I received an ARC for an honest review and the third book in this series is the perfect addition to this continuing story Lightbearer Carly has suffered from a lifetime of abuse Yet she’s a survivor and knows her own worth Enter one overbearing and sexually aggressive shifter named Reid A man who knows what he wants and is dedicated to pursuing it until he gets it Typically in other stories I’ve read the abused party ends up with an overly sensitive partner In this case the author was able to beautifully temper the alpha male lead with a masculine sensitivity and patience while still maintaining his intensity There’s a scene where he reaches for her and she flinches He instinctively realizes she’s been a victim of abuse from that moment It doesn’t change him but it does change his actions The author does a fabulous job of walking that thin line It just works in this story His confidence and intensity actually help to strengthen her own giving her room to make her own decisions and defend herself I’ve read the previous two books in this series and was happy to see the stories of Tanner and Olivia and Cecilia and Finn continue here as supporting characters I had to laugh when Cecilia turns to Carly and says “So what’s the plan?” Great follow up I recommend this series to those who enjoy paranormal romance or urban fantasy I was provided a free copy in return for an honest reviewThis story can be read as a stand alone but you will better understand the nuances having read the prior stories in this series Carley was down but not out She has pulled herself up from her bootstraps and has put together a life outside of the cortiere She is able to continue cooking which is her passion and if her life is lonely at least she makes the decision within her world Reid was unexpected and unwilling to take no It doesn't help that Carley for the first time in her life actually attracted to a male I loved how tender Reid is with Carley He is an Alpha and used to getting who and what he wants but he is different with Carley He has patience that surprises even him I love how Reid and Carley are together Ms Lund did a wonderful job of showing their courtship Carley is wounded and needs the time Reid is also wounded and surprised by how Carley helps in ways that surprise them both This story is well developed It is full of emotion love and laughter Ms Lund gave us twists that were unexpected but fit the story It is well worth taking the time to read the next installment in this series Lightbearer Carley stole my heart in book 2 of this series and captured it in this book She is so loving and only wants what she has been denied for so long She is an amazing chef and when Reid shows up in the restaurant she is working at she isn't sure what she should do Sparks start to fly between the 2 and slowly love begins to blossom but both have a secret they aren't willing to share Those secrets begin to come out slowly throughout this book but not by them They say love concurs all and I truly believe it concurred everything they had strived to keep from each other only to protect what they have This story is filled with so much heartache love and destruction it makes you feel as if there is nothing that can bring these 2 together but as I said love concurs all Tami Lund did an excellent job bringing these characters to life and pulling everyone togetherI was given this book for an honest review This series just continues to get better and better You have to lost souls both dealing with their own emotional baggage who happened to stumble upon one another Carley is determined to do anything and everything in her power to stay away from Reid but he can't seem to take no for an answer he determined to get to know Carly better even if that means showing up at her job every single day and also showing up at her house unannounced Reid doesn't know what it is about Carley that has him hooked all he knows is that her food is incredible and he can't seem to get enough of her Carley doesn't know what it is that Reid sees in her but little by little he breaks down the barriers that she's put around herself but she knows that this relationship can't go nowhere because she's mate Overall this was A excellent read it has everything that you look for in a great book liesdeceit psycho husband can't wait to see what's going to happen next in the series I received this book in exchange for an honest review Honestly I loved this book This is the third book in the Lightbearer series This books starts where the last one ended this really keeps the suspense going We know from the second book that Carley chef to the King was cruelly pushed down an icy flight of stairs presumably to her death We find that Carley fearing for her life has left the Coterie She is living and working at a restaurant in Chicago Reid Hennigan a lone shapeshifter wanders into a restaurant to find something irresistible Carley Both are damaged physically and mentally but together they start to heal each other Carley has a secret that could change everything This story has great likable characters good story line drama and humor I look forward to MANY in this series PS you get to also glimpse into the lives of the other characters as their relationships move forward
