Blog Tour Review 
(Luminous #2)

Erin Noelle

Cover Design: HangLe
Editing: Kayla Robichaux
Release Date: October 15, 2015
~ Synopsis ~
Her elusive past didn't worry me,
Her heartbreaking scars never made me cringe,
And her haunting demons only made me a stronger man.
But the day Blake Martin was stolen from me,
I was scared to death.
Prepared to do anything necessary to get her back,
Little did I know it just might cost me my life.
My name is Madden Decker, and this is my story.

~ Excerpt ~
His turbulent blue gaze cuts around the room until they land on where I’m curled up in a ball in the corner of the room, and when I don’t jump up right away, he begins to stalk in my direction.
“Did you hear me, girl? I said we have to leave. Right no—” He stops in his tracks once he takes notice of the spaghetti dinner the housekeeper, or at least that’s who I assume she was, delivered a short time ago, now splattered against the wall above where the plate it was served on lies in fragmented pieces on the floor. I tighten my grip on one of the porcelain shards entangled in my trembling fingers. The sharpest one I could find.
“What in the fuck did you do? Are you fucking crazy?” Boring a hole in me with an incredulous stare, he closes the distance between us and squats down to my level.
I keep my eyes trained on him, but say nothing. I’ve got a split-second to make the decision on whether to attempt an escape now with my makeshift weapon, or to wait until a better opportunity presents itself. All day, I’ve been trying to listen to the different muffled voices through the walls as I watched the cars come and go out the window, compiling as much information as possible about my whereabouts and the people in the house. I haven’t learned much except that Raze has been here with me the whole time.
After Anatoli informed me last night of my purpose here with the Russians, Raze escorted me back to the room—this room—where I was permitted to shower and given a bowl of chicken and rice to eat. The rest of the night I lay awake in the darkness, the sound of crickets in the trees, and my conflicting thoughts. Thoughts that ranged from planning my getaway, to wondering how sweet the revenge would be if I actually killed Vincent Ricci.

~ Review ~ seemed like forever since I was left sitting with my mouth hanging open thinking only the worst of things was about to happen to Blake as I stared at my kindle when finishing Translucent.

Well the wait is over and it was soooooo worth it!  I loved Translucent so this book was a tall order to fill for me.  Erin Noelle did a wonderful job of tying up loose ends and bringing a resolution to Blake's past.

She also made me fall for one of the supposed "bad guys".  Raze stole a piece of my heart with his need to right some wrongs and the way he looked after Blake even under the worst of circumstances.  Tears....she made me cry for him.

We are of course visited in Blake's memories by Ish.....ugh I don't honestly think I have ever disliked a character so much. He still torments her from the grave giving her nightmares that are chased away by Raze.

Madden, wow talk about getting the rug pulled out from under you. But even upon learning of Blake's past his loyalty and love for her is unwavering and he puts himself in harms way to get his girl back.

This series is not for the faint of heart.  It is a dark series with some graphic scenes and should be taken under advisement.  I truly loved this series however others may not.  This is not your every day love story but a story of crawling from the wreckage and rising above the destruction to find happiness.

See where it all began……
~ Synopsis ~
Sometimes you reach a point where you just can’t take any more – a breaking point some call it. The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break, it exploded like a magazine firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47. Literally. I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave. Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira and that was my story.

Translucent is one woman's story of breaking free, starting over, and learning to trust again through willful submission.
