Oh my goodness. Where do I even begin with this amazing book.
I devoured this book within 3 days and I was engrossed and invested in Reagan and Tarik's story the entire time. I just could not stop reading. Reagan and Tarik are such amazing beautiful broken babies that I just want to hug and hide away from all the pain. Their story really took me on a rollercoaster of emotions and despite my heart being torn out and put back in, the ride was am

“I am fierce. Fierce.”

What an absolutely perfect way to describe the main heroine in this book. Reagan is fierce, brave, kind and absolutely determined. She is the kind of character that you can get behind, that you feel protective of. When she is triumphant you are elated and when she cries you want to hurt those who have hurt her, but you don’t need to because she can handle herself.

“Destruction followed me wherever I went.”

And our hero the beautiful, damaged, brilliant Tarik. He is everything

Knowing this book is written by two authors, I was curious to see what it would feel like. Being familiar with Tyffany's writing, the question was whether or not I'd enjoy it seeing merged with someone else's. Conclusion? Didn't mind it one bit! The combination of fast-paced events, slower-paced moments and the flowing between the two was well done by both authors. I also really enjoyed the attention to detail when it came to descriptions and the outlining of acti

Okay, so this was really great. Obviously I went in with high expectations and CLEARLY those expectations were met. Dawn till Dusk is like the perfect urban fantasy. You've got a dark city, an evil ruler, a broody pissed-off hero and, of course, the snarky and capable heroine. And it's honestly just a lot of fun. The plot is fast-paced, rocketing its way toward a thrilling ending that had me picking my jaw up off the floor. Let's just say I'm READY for book two!

Here we have it!! A beautiful product of heartfelt love of two amazing authors.

I loved every second of this gorgeous novel filled with shifters and faes. I am a sucker for paranormal and when we put the star crossed lovers trope, mixed with forbidden love trope, sign me up, please, as I need every second of it.

Dawn till Dusk is just the first book in a SAGA, you guys!! SO SO much is going to happen and I don't know if my heart can take the pain that I am anticipating.

Tarik and Reagan! I fell in

I received an eARC by the authors for an honest review.

First of all, I tend to be really skeptical about co-authored books but this one felt really natural as I read it. These ladies nailed it. Their characters' voices fit together seamlessly and were such a joy to read. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. Or any book they're going to write together to be honest.

Now, about the story:

Dawn till Dusk is the perfect read for lovers of grumpy fae, sassy shifters and an entertaining romance filled with angst and dazzling banter.
Urban fantasy is a tricky genre for me. Despite being closer to what is “normal”, I have a hard time processing magic alongside cell phones and bikes. But with this book, I was immediately drawn into the world, and I quickly clicked with its characters. I found myself relating to Tarik’

Gripping and darkly beautiful, this
New Adult book is my favorite Urban Fantasy of the year.

Dawn till Dusk is a forbidden romance between an angry Fae, and a fiesty shifter. These two tortured souls clash together when Reagan, a shifter enforcer, helps Tarick, a Fae, who should be her enemy.

The worldbuilding in this book is on point. The main characters are fleshed out, beautiful and raw. The alternating point-of-views between the characters, and the authors, flow nicely. The romance is a slow

An urban fantasy with unique world building, nuanced characters, and a romance that I am 100% here for. There is some trigger warnings, and I admit that I skipped half a chapter because I'm very sensitive to child deaths in books (it's a mom thing), but that was only one small section. Can't wait to learn more about the mysteries of their world in book 2! ...more

In a tumultuous time like this, I cannot be more glad to have read this book! It's everything you want in an urban fantasy and then some.
The story follows Tarik (a Fae) and Reagan (a shifter) in a city that is run by shifters and where Fae are treated as lowly citizens; which honestly is a fresh change from all the fantasies where Fae are always potrayed as the elite ra

I’m really excited that more and more Fae type creatures are moving beyond the traditional fantasy genre and more and more shifters are branching out from just the typical werewolf-like monsters. It’s a new era of Urban Fantasy that I am totally here for! And if that sounds like something you’d be down for, then I totally recommend “Dawn till Dusk”! It’s the story of Tarik and Reagan, two characters who are on opposite sides of the conflict between shifters and Fae. In this world, the Fae are no ...more

I have read the debut series of both of the authors for this book and loved them, so I am not surprised at all to say that I also adored this. I first read DTD a year ago as a beta reader for an early draft and flew through it. This book is a quick-paced, enemies-to-lovers urban fantasy that is truly so fun. Even on my second read with the ARC I found myself falling in love with the characters all over again.

When the opportunity to participate in the cover reveal and read the eARC of this book presented itself, I could not refuse. Being a long-time follower of Tyffany Hackett and having read her other series, The Thanatos Trilogy, and having heard great things about Becky Moynihan’s The Elite Trials on Instagram, I was immediately excited. I’m happy to say that this book did not disappoint!

After reading Reactive by Becky Moynihan, I knew I needed this co-authored New Adult urban fantasy!

In Nathra City, the shifters rule with an iron fist. Mordecai the Great Dragon Shifter has conditioned Reagan to believe the Fae are inferior. As the city's Night Enforcer, it's her job to make sure the lines between shifter and Fae are intact. But Raegan has never quite believed the drivel about the Fae a

The politics of this world are so refreshing and intriguing! I rarely read books where the relationships between Fae and Shifter are how they were in this book. Shifters run the city

Okay. Where do I even start with this wonderful book? The writing? The story? The characters? The world?! Because it was all just.... AMAZING! I guess I'll start from the beginning. I picked up this book, expecting to read a few chapters before bed. That did not happen. A *few* chapters turned in to five. Which soon became a third of the book.

A fun start to what I think will be a great series! I'm a fan of the way Hackett and Moynihan write together. The characters are complex and endearing and the story is entertaining and exciting with great pacing. It's got a perfect balance between the story and the romance, they intertwine just right and keep the reader rooting for Reagan and Tarik. I'm looking forward to the next book/s in the series! ...more

I love fantasy novels to begin with, but Becky and Tyffany did an amazing job building two unique and heartrendingly damaged characters, while retaining strength of character and building a world that comes to life with every turn of the page. There are so many scenes that really grab on and pull you into the story. I found myself staying up way too late to finish another chap ...more

It's fate that brought this book to me, and I'm so grateful that it happened because Dawn Till Dusk turned out to be the kind of book I wanted to read: there are creatures with wings, the 'enemies to lovers' trope (and it was so well developed!!!! I really loved every single interaction between Tarik and Reagan, there are a lot of post-its to show it), an amazing female character that is strong and capable of defending herself (but also weak and frail when life tries to crush her) and just

OMG THIS BOOK! It’s amazing. AMAZING! I have not read a book so fast since I was a teenager. Tarik and Reagan are OTP. The characters, especially the MCs Reagan and Tarik, are so well carved and they go through a lot of development throughout the book. The world building is fantastical. The villains are so hateful you will want to crush them. And the pacing is addictive and totally binge worthy. 100% recommend this book, especially to romance readers who love a fantastical spin.

I am highly impressed that this book (and this series) is written by two different authors. By reading it, you couldn’t tell that each character was written by a different person as they blended so well together in their writing styles and I think that needs to be noted here. Very well ladies!
