The chemistry between Chase and Enzo is scorching. Chase is totally in love with Enzo but for a long time thinks that Enzo is straight so he does not realize that he has a chance. The sex scenes are blistering. Enzo does not give Chase enough credit in knowing his own mind.
Out of the Darkness is the second book in the Taken series by J. C. Ownes. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book very well written with interesting and realistic main and secondary characters. I read this book in one sitting. I loved it. Overall, this was a great book. I will be reading more by this author in the future.
