Two strangers in Paris ...
One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.
He was the artist upstairs
with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.
He was the devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.
He was desire and need.
When he touched me, my body sang.
My soul came alive.
But I belonged to another man,
and he didn't want to let me go.
I enjoyed the start of this book, and I thought to myself this is definitely going to be a 4-4.5 star juicy/complicated romance. I also LOVED this setting — Paris. Seriously, can you get anymore romantic? The last half though… well, I just didn’t love it as much as the beginning. I had trouble staying connected to the characters which has never been a problem with the author’s previous books. I never felt head or heels with Sebastian like I did with Arsen or Lawrence.
I wish the author would have spent more time with Valentina after she finally left William for good. I would have enjoyed seeing her getting to finally know herself without a man in her life. I adored the old man at the flower shop. I think that was a missed opportunity for those two to become close – maybe like a grandfather and granddaughter friendship. I guess I just wanted more relationships explored in depth.
Love Me in the Dark was super sexy as you would expect from Mia Asher. This book didn’t quite kick me in the gut with feels, however, I still liked it. When I compare how much I loved Arsen (5++++ stars) or the Virtue books (4 stars), LMITD is a 3-3.5 star read.
