Review: A KISS IN THE DARK by Cat Clarke (SPOILERS WARNING)


SynopsisWhen Alex meets Kate the attraction is instant.

Alex is funny, good-looking, and a little shy - everything that Kate wants in a boyfriend.

Alex can't help falling for Kate, who is pretty, charming and maybe just a little naive...

But one of them is hiding a secret, and as their love blossoms, it threatens to ruin not just their relationship, but their lives.


Review: This one is really hard to review without giving the whole plot away but I've tried my best. If you don't want any SPOILERS I suggest you don't read this review.


I really couldn't put this one down. Staying up until 2am just to make sure I found out what happened! 

Right from the end of chapter one I was hooked. The cliffhanger is too much to not want to find out what on earth is going on. This is a lovely story about first love, how you think nothing can pull you apart and what happens when something threatens to do just that.

You can really love Alex and Kate, but that's just what makes it so much more frustrating when things go wrong for both these characters. I found that I kept flip flopping between being incredibly angry at the characters and really loving them. At points I must admit that it was the anger that was making me read on simply because I wanted them to stop being so stupid!

Throughout the first half of the book Alex is constantly saying things like 'I didn't think about it back then', so you know something awful is going to happen, it's just a matter of time. To top it off there are twists that you really don't see coming, you can't prepare yourself for it. After putting you through so many different emotions, the ending makes you feel all warm and fuzzy again. However, I did question if it was a realistic ending after everything that had happened.

I normally like it when a book doesn't leave a lot to question, but this time I was really happy that it left enough for the reader to decide. I don't think I could take it if anything else went wrong.

Overall this is a brilliant book. Touching on lots of different aspects that people go through every single day, some really awful and some really heart warming. I might even read it again...right now. *waves* See you when I'm done!
