      DNF @ 21 PercentJolene escapes from being held captive and used for sex for 10 brutal years. She flees to Amelia Island, Florida and scores a beach house to rent.On her first day hiding out:1. She breaks and tells people her real name because she trusts these new people after 24 hours.2. Makes a bff and spills all her dark secrets.3. Falls in love with a guy named Cam and visce versa.The instant love was preposterous and thus I stopped because this story wasn't for me.

      ARC provided by authors in exchange of honest review☆☆☆☆☆ 5 “Tomorrow” Stars ☆☆☆☆☆The Beautiful Mess Series by T.K. Leigh will always hold a special place in my heart. This was the first time I was introduced to this talented author and of course I cannot forget Mr. B and his Olivia. But I must say T.K. Leigh has truly outdone herself once again in her newest novel, Heart of Light. Heart of Light absolutely 100% stole my heart. In this touching, breathtaking, and heartfel [...]

      This is pretty much what I kept saying to myself over and over as I read this book: "umwhat?" There are contradictions on almost every page, it made my head spin. Jolene is broken and fearful, yet feisty and strong. She afraid to be touched, until she turns into a seductress. Huh?The story started out good, Jolene escapes her life as a prostitute after 10 years and takes a bus from Chicago to SC to find a new life. She dyes her hair, is watchful, and finds a place to rent. Then it all goes downh [...]

      No just no. Spoiler involved. I have never read any of this author's work before, and sadly I probably won't read any more. I wanted to DNF so badly, but I didn't. I think everyone of my book friends did so I said I would take one for the team to star it. The main event in this book is the instant love factor. Here we have a girl who has been held captive and sold as a sex slave since her eighteenth birthday, however she has found a way out. She jumps on a bus and immediately heads to a beach is [...]

      Did I read the same story? This story was all over the god damn place. I am going to rant and probably give away spoilers. Consider yourself warned. It isn't going to be pretty. (view spoiler)[The heroine. HA! NO heroine. Geesh. The female lead, Jolene, was recovering from a broken heart that we got to see in The Beautiful Mess series (OMG, another disaster!!!!!!!!). a yoyo would have been more interesting.She was 28 years old when she finally escaped from a vicious VICIOUS sadistic man. I allot [...]

      First off I will say that I am a huge fan of the Beautiful Mess series and Cam was my favorite character when it was all said and done. He was such an nice and understanding guy, you just wanted to see him get a HEA of his own. In the Heart of Light Cam is still in Florida, still feeling the loss of Olivia even after a couple of years. In his heart he knows she belonged with Alexander, however that doesn't mean it was easy to let her go. Cam has a great job, is good looking and wants to share hi [...]

    • Kimberly says:

      This amazing author has done it again. She's written another awesome suspense story with romance wrapped all around it. Cam is a fantastically sweet surfer man (not boy) who loves with his whole being. Which is why I loved him so much in the Beautiful Mess series. I love his character. #GirlBoner. Does that say it all or what! Jolene. Wow. Where do I even start. To think what has happened to her in this book actually goes on in this world of ours in unreal and will draw you in and keep you there [...]

    • Spoiler Whore of Pettysburg says:

      I got bored, skimmed, didn't hold my interest whatsoever so it's a DNF @ 18%.Again, all my DNF gets one stars.

      “Yes, I need it. To be free from the darkness. Please, Cam. Be my light.”If that isn’t a quote that breaks your heart, then don’t fret, Heart of Light has a million more to choose from that are sure to twist you and your soul up into tiny little pieces. This book was a turbulent wave of emotion for me. I cried, I laughed, I had my heart broken more times than I can count, but most of all - I felt hope. Hope for the beauty of love, for the power of a strong spirit, and hope that good real [...]

      So many problems So little timeWritingI'm immediately not a fan of the narration here being in third person omniscient, meaning that I've already had the thoughts and feelings of Jolene, the MC; the housekeeper, Rosa; and a random guard; Rosa's husband, Patrick; a Senator; a gas clerk; and a guy renting out a house by just 5% in the book. It's just too much.Believability[image error]s3azonaws/citybuzz/2015 width="250" height="300" alt="description"/> Setting is Chicago. That's a problem! I'm [...]

    • Stacy Hahn says:

      This book was beyond amazing! TK Leigh is a master story teller. I didn't think she could top the Beautiful Mess books, but boy was I wrong!We got to meet and fall in a love/hate relationship with Cam in A Tragic Wreck. I wanted to love him but my love for all things Alexander and Olivia kept me on team Alex. In the Heart of Light you will be 100% team Cam.The Heart of Light is a stand alone novel. You do not need to read the Beautiful Mess series to read this book.It's been 2 years since his he [...]

      5 intensely bright starsWow just wow!! Talk about a book hangover! Not sure what I just read, but wow!! This was an intense mind blowing type of book. This will be a book that sticks with me for quite awhile. I will definitely be needing a recovery book after this one.Now after all of that being said I think the only negative I found was some repetitive phrases, and though it got a bit much for me (ie: "show me you love me" "show me how much you love me"), but it wasn't enough to make me stop re [...]

      Favorite Quotes:“He made a mental note to stop giving Elsie so much crap for saying that he only went for the troubled girls. She was spot on, and it took him running on the beach past midnight after a girl wearing wet underwear to make him fully realize what she had been saying for years.” “I’d rather suffer from blue balls because of you than be with anyone else. I have a feeling you’ll be worth the wait.”My Review:This is my virgin voyage with T.K. Leigh, although I have been hear [...]

    • Raj says:

      3 starsIs it weird that I like the senator and Anthony for Jolene? The senator was obsessed with her and Anthony calls her Jo-Jo Bear, which is quite endearing.The story's kind of dark, but not dark enough. I breezed through some parts coz It was just too serious, borderline boring. Usually, the dark novels that I've read, they're serious but there's excitement, this one, not so much.

    • J says:

      There are a lot of high ratings for this book, but a lot of DNF's also. So I thought I would see for myself. I read it (admittedly skimming along many times) and have to totally agree the DNF's have got it right. I didn't care for it at all.

      This was an amazing tale of a beautiful young woman who has suffered unspeakable horrors but has managed to reclaim her life and find true love.Human trafficking is one of the most horrific tragedies that plague our world today. Jolene is a victim of this, having been deceived as a young teenager. When she turns 18 the horrors of her future unfold before her. After suffering the most horrible of abuses for 10 years she manages to escape with the help of some wonderful people. She lands on a smal [...]

    • Kitten says:

      *3 Stars* This story was different to the usual captive books which I normally love to read wherein the captive falls in love with the captor however Heart of Light is not one of those books. It has a different tone than one I used to so naturally I was excited to explore it and watch Jolene's story unfold and take a refreshing turn. Heart of Light explores captivity in its dark depth. The author did an amazing job at bringing out the raw emotions within the story and held onto the brutal truth [...]

    • Bethany says:

      This can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you read A Beautiful Mess, A Tragic Wreck, and Gorgeous Chaos first. It is an incredible story and will help you see a bit more in to Cam and what a beautiful person he is. Though he was not in the whole series, he was a stand out character when he was present and I am so glad he got his own story.Well, T.K. Leigh has done it again. She delivered a story full of suspense, action and emotion. She did a fabulous job of giving you an inside g [...]

    • Melissa says:

      I'm probably going to be the only person to admit this but I fell in love with Cam in A Tragic Wreck. If you haven't read The Beautiful Mess series, #1 you don't know what you're missing and #2 it's not necessary to have read that series in order to follow Heart of Light. Two years after having his heart broken by Olivia Adler, Cameron Bowen is still a broken man. Jolene Bergio has just escaped from a nightmare life and finds herself renting Cam's beach house. She slowly allows him to break down [...]

      2.5 stars DNF :( Never thought I'd be saying this, but this book just did not do it for me. Which comes as a shock bcas i was a HUGE fan of T.K Leigh's A Beautiful Mess series. I mean, I rated that book as one of my all-time-fav series, thats how much I loved it.The things that bugged me about this book:1. Was it just me, or did it not feel like this was the same Cam from a beautiful mess? He was still the same sweet guy, who tries to fix something or someone should I say that's brokenbut I just [...]

    • Victoria Stolte says:

      What can I say. I fell in love with Cam in The Beautiful Mess Series. He was such a sweet guy who always seemed to be trying to help others, even if it meant sacrificing his own happiness. In this book he is no different. We start off with a girl escaping a hotel where she has been being held against her will for quite some time. With the help of a loving staff member from the hotels staff she manages to flee. But to what? Getting as far away as she can she ends up on a beach Where she meets the [...]

    • ExplicitEscapes says:

      I don't even know where to start. T.K. captured me with her first series, A Beautiful Mess. After reading those, I could not wait for Cam's story. And wow, she delivered. T.K. writes with so much passion that it jumps off the pages to you, ropes you, and drags you into the book so deep that you feel as if you were living the story with the characters. She took a chance writing about human trafficking, and I am glad that she did. You can tell she really did her homework on this. It's heartbreakin [...]

    • Lauren says:

      I bought a signed copy of this book from the authors store on etsy. I was looking for a serious read, a book that made you think. This is not it. We start off with Jolene the daughter of Angelina, all I could think about was Angelina Jolie. Then we get the kidnapping/forced romance, which is the point of the book. But then the author shows her escaping and falling in love with a man in one day. I find it highly impossible for a woman who has been beaten and raped by every man she has ever dealt [...]

    • Heike says:

      3,5 Stars! I loved the Beautiful Mess Series and was really looking forward to Cameron's story. And wow, the topic of this book was really tough. The idea of being held captive for over ten years and being auctioned off to men every night is just horrible. I really liked that Jolene didn't loose her spirit during that time. But that also brings me to my issue with this book. I didn't really feel her processing and coping with everything that she endured. I can't believe that anybody can move on [...]

    • Chrissy says:

      T.k. Leigh's best work yet! We met Cam in the beautiful mess series and most of us didn't like him so much, but then we see him in this tragic and beautiful story and fall in love with him.This book is not for the faint of heart, it deals with some very heavy subject matter and is pretty dark in some places, but Jolene's story (even if fictional) is one that needed to be told.This book had me ugly crying, yelling, and falling in love. You will be all over the place with your emotions and not be [...]

    • 1-Click Addict Support Group says:

      Cam stole my heart in TK Leigh's Beautiful Mess series, after reading Heart of Light he's permanently imprinted as one of my favorite book boyfriends! Move over Mr. B, you've got some serious competition with this hero. This story is a nightmare of epic proportions that plagues our world today, though Leigh has written it in the fictional sense, human trafficking is very real. I love the way she has educated readers as to what happens right under our noses yet not many people know about. Nail bi [...]

    • Sylvia says:

      TK Leigh has outdone herself! Heart of Light was amazing.We meet Cam who was left with a broken heart two years prior and Jolene who walks into his life when she rents his home in Amelia Island. Jolene is broken and running from the terrible life she has endured the last ten years. Even though Cam is not to fond of Jolene at first sight, he eventually has a change of attitude/heart and Cam becomes everything you would want in a man. You will be swooned by his love, and attentiveness for Jolene.T [...]

    • Big Joe says:

      Hmmmm, OK what I like the plot and concept. interesting with subplots but no twist that you couldn't easily guess. what I DIDN'T like the dialogue, beyond bad! no real people talk like this! Secondly, the psychology of abuse victims I'm sorry but forced sex slaves aren't walking in broad daylight the day after escaping, they are not telling their real names two days after escaping. No way are they looking to make love a day after being raped. There are many other ways examples. What saves this b [...]

    • Noelle says:

      I can't express how much I loved the hero, Cam, and how amazing he was much. The way he was there for Jolene made me smile. He really cared about her and made her feel safe the way no one else could. I love the sweet and protective alpha guys.Jolene went through so much and is one of the strongest women. What happened to her was disgusting. How she went through it and survived for 10 long years is amazing. I was glad that she met Cam and they had their happy ever after. He is every girls dream.
