ARC received from author for an honest review

Firstly, I love this cover -and I am not usually one to pay much attention to covers at all.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had not heard of Christina Kirby.  In the past 3 days I have read both books of her Survival of The Fittest series, and have added another author to my long list of series I need more of.

Whilst you could read A Light In The Dark as a stand alone, there is quite a bit you will miss about the main guy Bailey, as a lot played out in A Face In The Crowd - and besides, why would you want to miss any of it.

Carrying on a couple of years after A Face In The Crowd, Bailey's - and the rest of Survival Of The Fittest - life has changed so much.

I adored Bailey in book one, but boy did I just love him in A Light In The Dark.

I liked that this was not the usual rock star story.  It is a rock star "on a break" story, struggling to find what he really wants from life.

Enter Brie. I like her.  She has not time for distractions, has her life all planned down to the minutiae.

 They are so different, yet so perfect for each other and I couldn't help but hope for them to be something.

A Light in The Dark was an easy read. It made me laugh, it made me tear up, the characters frustrated me, but made me fall for them.

Beautiful story, wonderful characters, I read this book in one sitting, as I just couldn't put it down.

Now I am impatiently waiting for the next in this series.
