⭐5.0 out of 5 Stars Loved it

Great praise to the author on a brilliant debut novel. I read this in one sitting as it was so good.

Shelby is a poet who works in an office. She comes across as insecure and doesn’t have much faith in herself. The one constant in her life is her best friend Roni who has been through everything with her. There is a lot of sexual tension between Shelby and Roni.

What happens if they take their friendship to a new level?

When Shelby meets Riley she needs to decide if she wants to be with Roni or Riley.

After reading this I realise I want to read more F/f stories as this was so good.
I’ve got to admit I’m not keen on poetry so wasn’t sure if I’d like this story. However I really liked the poetry in this story.

This was a well written story that pulled on my emotions. I loved it.
Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Four point Five Great Stars!

Four point Five Great Stars! This is Ms. Lee’s first novel and I think she does a fantastic job! Shelby is trying to discover who she is in work, life and sexually. Roni is Shelby’s best friend but she has strong feelings for her and one night they take things to the next level. Riley is also an artist who meets Shelby and they have a strong attraction toward one another. Now Shelby has a decision to make, which one will she choose and what will happen to the one left behind? The book has plenty of hot interactions, like F/F, and a ménage. Ms. Lee is quite talented writing a beautiful story as well as heartfelt poetry. The story kept my interest and had me wanting to see what happened next. I look forward to seeing where Ms. Lee goes next!

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club.

Wow very well written, I can’t wait to read more books by you Brooke. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. You had me laughing and crying and even on the “I hate you” kick. But I can’t wait for Roni’s next.

Astounding First for this new author
By Amazon Reader on April 2, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am so very thrilled for this new author. The first book is always the hardest, and Brooke did a beautiful job in telling this story. Beauty in the Darkness is a wonderful mix of erotica and poetry. It is the story of Shelby James’ quest to find herself, both sexually and professionally. Shelby’s soul mate is her best friend Roni, and they end up exploring the sensual side of their friendship. Enter Riley, and Shelby is not only confused, but alive. The story tells about Shelby’s struggles with putting herself out there with her art, and the struggles hit home. when you are first showing your soul to the world, you feel insecure, but she, like most of us, get through it with a little help from her friends.

The sex is hot, and the feelings are real. In the end, Shelby finds her Beauty in the Darkness.
