I loved Dark Side of Dawn as much as Before I Wake. Kathryn Smith has a knack for making us believe these are real people, the characters come to life. She's building a world with this series that is very interesing and never ever boring just as the characters are enticing.
Christmas is not so merry for Kate and Leah. Kate's romantic winter holiday is destroyed by the sudden and uninvited presence of Dix's annoying ex-wife Eve or Pickles as she's referred to in the book, while Brandon's super-perfect family and a diamond ring send Leah running for the refuge of a girl's vacation in Sin City with Kate in tow. But Dix and Brandon both know what they want. In hot pursuit, the men show up in Vegas, ready to use every sensual trick they have to convince Kate and Leah to take a gamble on forever. Four days in Vegas. Two sexy and determined men. One penthouse suite . . . and no reservations.
The characters are believable and really entertaining. When things get hot, they really, really get hot. It's an entertaining, hot read.
I highly recommend.
