TITLE: Darkness Matters
AUTHOR: Jay McLean
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: June 28th, 2017

It’s the same old story, really. 
Good versus evil. 
Heroes versus villains. 
Light versus dark. 
For two years, college freshman Noah Morgan lived his life somewhere in the middle, fighting darkness and light, always searching for answers to a single question:
Why, Noah, why?
The same three words keep him up at night, struggling for air while gripping a plastic cylinder containing white pills to match the white label with his name printed in ink as deep and dark as his memories—memories that turned him into a recluse. 
A shut-in. 
An introvert.
Luckily for him, that’s not how the girl next door sees him.

DARKNESS MATTERS is a new standalone novel by Jay Mclean. In this we meet Noah & Andromeda’s story and is spoken in triple perspectives. 

Andromeda (Galaxy) also known as Messier 31
Andromeda (Mythology) also known as The Woman Changed.

Andie had her whole life mapped out, where she wanted to go, what she wanted to be, until a gorgeous older boy moved in next door to her Grandparents house and she got so wrapped up in the lies and deception he wrapped her in, in an instant her life came tumbling down around her in a abrupt moment of stunning clarity. 

➼ “I’m a girl with an infinite amount of regrets. A girl who used to believe in chance and in fate but doesn’t anymore. I'm a girl who sees the world in black and white and different shades of grays, but never in colour.” 

Noah blames himself for one night that he'd wished with all his heart he'd answered his phone, one night that threw him into a cloak of darkness with his best friend Bradley always by his side he struggles to find some normalcy in the destruction left behind from that one fateful night that changed his life forever. 

➼ “I wasn't afraid of the dark. I was afraid of what happened when the light switched on.”

Noah has just moved into an apartment just off campus, adjoining his apartment is Miles a porn star who is barely at home and the other tenants are twin sisters Andromeda aka Andie and Milky. 

Noah knows what everyone thinks of him, he’s seen as a recluse, a shut-in, an introvert but what they don’t know is that Noah may be drop dead gorgeous but he’s also very shy, it takes him a lot to strike up a conversation, Andie seems to be the only one that sees beyond his walls, he's never tongue tied or shy around her, around her he becomes himself. 

Twenty-one year old Andromeda has just recently moved in with her twin sister Milky and presently stocks shelves at the local supermarket as found by the programme she attends whilst doing accountancy night classes. 

I was super excited to one click this book Jay McLean is one of those authors that know exactly how to zap you with the feels and she did exactly that with this book, reading Noah's story had me spiralling down an emotional rollercoaster and I will admit I even shed a tear or two. 

This is going to be one jumbled up mess, so I've just finished this, a crazy ride of epic confusion, like an unfinished puzzle piece where pieces are missing from the finished product. No where did this mention that it was BOOK#1 within a series, because it does feel like another book needs to come after this to tie up all those loose ends, or even an epilogue would've worked. So like many other readers before me, I'm also left in limbo hoping that there is another to come after this. This kind of left me deflated because of the unknown.
