The Darkest of Light was the second book in the King’s of Retribution MC series by Sandy Alvarez and Crystal Daniels. I loved the first book and have been not-so-patiently waiting for this one!

We met Gabriel and Alva in the first book. We knew it was a beauty and the beast attraction, we just didn’t know to what extent they had acted (or not acted) upon it. We finally get the full report!

Gabriel Martinez was a patched member of the MC. He was big, quiet, fully tattooed, loyal to family, totally
4 Gabriel and Alba Stars

This is the second book in the Kings of Retribution series and it centres on Gabriel , the Club's Enforcer and Alba. Alba is the younger sister of Bella from book one.

This story picks up exactly from where the previous one finished and then the book takes us back to how Gabriel and Alba connected initially. Gabriel is the moody, brooding Enforcer who puts the security of his Brothers before everything else. When he sets eyes on Alba , he falls hard but he doesn't want to

OMGoodness but Gabriel and Alba's story was fantastic! So much was going on in this one! Grumpy Gabriel was alpha times 2, but boy did he mess up... twice! Alba did a lot of growing up in "The Darkest of Light" and her big reveal/secret was due mainly to her not wanting to disappoint her sister, Bella. The angst in this story, this series left me at the edge of my seat!!!!!!!!!!!

The world of The Kings is engaging and a must read MC series!

Ending with a smile

Ending this book with a HUGE smile on my face! Loved this book so much! Gabriel was such a gentle giant but mess with his family and he won’t be so gentle. And Alba she was such a strong young woman with a good head on her shoulders. Loving this series more and more!!

The Darkest of Light is book 2 in The Kings of Retribution series. After not enjoying book 1 I did plan on reading book 2 at some point because I loved Gabriel and wanted to read his story. I'm so glad I did because Gabriel and Alba were awesome together and this book was so good I'm definitely reading more of this series. While some of Gabriel's decisions I understood, I didn't like how he handled them but just like Alba I forgave him quickly. Alba was sweet and loving, perfect for Gabriel. I'm ...more

WOW! The Darkest of Light picks up exactly where Undaunted left off, however this is Gabriel and Alba's story. We all know that Gabriel is a rough around the edges kind of guy and Alba always has her nose stuck in a book.

What can I say, this book was a very anticipated can't miss read!! As I was reading, my heart broke so many times for Alba & of course I thought Gabriel was an asshole but I completely understand why. I've only cried with two other authors books and before those two, I never cr

This is only book 2 of the series but let me tell you it’s definitely going to be a dandy and one I know I’ll be reading over and over in years to come. Just WOW! The authors have written a wonderful storyline and the characters are just perfect for it. The bikers are hot, tough, and nothing is more important to them than family; both their biker brotherhood and their women and blood families. The storyline has suspense, romance and bits of humor, all of which will have you hooked from chapter o ...more
After being kidnapped and rescued by Gabriel Martinez, Alba Jameson's only source for feeling truly safe and protected was Gabriel. They grew extremely close but Gabriel knew Alba was heading to college and did not want to stand in her way of achieving her dreams. Gabriel pushed Alba away and in doing so broke her heart and lost her trust. Now Alba is back and has a secret, not to mention a stalker who is determined to get to her. Gabriel knows he needs to regain Alba's trust and will do everyth ...more
Another winner! I'm enjoying the series quite a bit. There's still some unfortunate editing issues, but the story itself makes up for it. It was pretty easy to figure out who the bad guy was but I had fun going along for the ride anyhow.

This is the second book in the Kings of Retribution MC series by Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez. I don’t know why I waited so long to start this series but I could kick myself because I am loving it. When Undaunted ended I knew what the big surprise was gonna be and I was right. This book starts out seven months prior to where Undaunted left off. Alba’s graduation/birthday party has just ended. Gabriel Martinez is 25 years old and he’s the Enforcer for the Kings of Retribution MC. Ever since ...more

I received an ARC of this book for my honest opinion.

I don't even know where to start on this one. I had been so excited to read Alba and Gabriels story since undaunted. Sandy and Crystal did not disappoint at all. This book gave me all of the feels

I really like how the story started in the exact same place as undaunted ended. I really like how the story went back several months and then at the halfway point you end up getting to the same place as the prologue.

Fabulous follow up book. I just fall more in love with this series. This book is fantastically written. Gabriel Martinez has had a difficult life, being ripped away from his homeland and the subsequent murder of his father, Gabriel’s main focus becomes revenge. That is until he meets The Kings of Retribution MC and they take him in and become his family. As a patched member of the MC he has his “brothers” backs and they have his. All of that changes when he meets Alba Jameson. All Alba and her ...more

Gabriel knows misery but his brothers in the MC have given him some peace. Alba only knows peace when she is with Gabriel. One night with him and he ruins everything. She goes off to college but find shelter back home and under the protection of the club for reasons she cannot control. Gabriel has his work cut out for him with Alba.

I was simply swooned by the characters and the of The Darkest of Light, the second book of The Kings of Retribution MC. I had been waiting for this book for weeks, and I was not disappointed by the amazing writing of sisters Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez. It focuses on Alba and Gabriel's story, and it is full of angst, drama, steamy scenes and unexpected twists and turns.
The character development is phenomenal, giving lots of insight into the main characters, who we met in Undaunted. Alba i

So having fun with this series. This is truly a hidden gem as far as MC series are concerned. Truly, I cannot wait to see what is next. Do you yourself a favor and indulge yourself in this series!!

The story picks up right where 'Undaunted' left off. The authors have covered all of their bases, so far as far as continuity is concerned, that each book could be read as a stand alone. However, it's my true feeling that you would do yourself a great disservice because these stories are truly kick ass

I absolutely LOVED the fact that The Darkest of Light picked right back up where Undaunted left off, except it centered around Alba & Gabriel. And these two are as opposite as opposite could be; for example, Gabriel is the rough around the edges, Enforcer for The Kings of Retribution MC, while Alba is a very smart girl who always has her nose in a book. But for whatever reason, they just clicked, and spent the night together, then the next morning, Gabriel broke her heart. So, Alba goes on to co ...more

The Darkest of light was flipping amazing loved everything about it which wasn't shocking because Undaunted was really good . Even though this is book two in the Kings of retribution it can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest that you one click it along with this one . I loved how Sandy and Crystal wrote the story line the way they did and to put it in both point of views because it's always awesome to see from both perspectives . With the way the first book ended lets just say I needed ...more

Fantastic read and great follow-up to the first in this series. This book is extremely well written and full of angst, intrigue, drama, a bit of biker banter and some pretty steamy sex scenes. But it is the story of Gabriel and Alba that will have you turning page after page to see how their story plays out. If you read the first book in this series you know that Alba was rescued with her sister from human traffickers and Gabriel is the one who took Alba out of the building. Now, that they are b ...more

These authors blew me away with their debut, Undaunted which is the first book of this series, so to say I had high expectations for this book is putting it mildly. I expected something that would captivate me and make me lose myself in the story. I was not disappointed. The Darkest of Light surpassed all of that. These ladies wrote a story that more than wows you, they wrote a story that completely takes you over and doesn’t let you go until the very last page. I devoured this book in one after ...more

Ever since the ending of book 1 I couldn’t wait to read Alba and Gabriel story. It was sort of predictable what happened after that ending in Book 1 but I didn’t expect all the suspense and a little bit of heartbreak.

Book 2 starts with Gabriel breaking Alba’s heart but he had his reasons. The things he said to her made me gasp and kwashiorkor surprised he said those things. For the record, he’s more intense than ever than he was in Book 1, lol.

*Disclaimer: I received this book as an ARC from Enticing Journey Book Promotions. The following review is my own with no input, promises, nor compensations from Enticing Journey or the author*.

This book is everything you want in a MC Romance. Gabe is the type of guy that I am drawn to, with the gruff exterior, a hardness about him that unless you look closely enough you miss the soft sweet side. His love for Alba is so great he would rather send her away than taint her with his darkness. He fee

The darkest of light is the second book of The Kings Of Retribution MC series, it’s the follow up to the first book, Undaunted.
Although this is #2 in the series, I read this as a stand-alone.
This story is centred around two main characters Gabriel and Alba, and the push/pull relationship they have...there is no struggle, he simply does what he thinks is best for her and pushes her away.
But in saying this he has his reasons, and these are showcased within the first half of the story.

This is the 2nd book in this amazing series, and continues straight on from where Undaunted ended. This is Gabriel and Alba’s story. Gabriel is the enforcer in the MC, and has had a tough life growing up, and the club and his brothers mean everything to him. Alba is a book worm, who loves Gabriel and is left heartbroken when Gabriel rejects her in order for her to continue on with her life. This storyline is filled with angst, drama, intrigue, suspense, humour, romance, and is an emotional and h ...more

I wanted so much to give this book more stars. The story was really good and I loved Gabriel and Alba. Even with everything that she had gone through, Alba was strong. She had spirit and backbone. And even though Gabriel could be a real butt, he was still a good guy and you could tell how much he loved Alba.

Unfortunately there were so many mistakes I almost quit more times than I can count. The only reason I didn't was because I felt the characters deserved more. I doubt I will be reading more,
