4.5 Stars rounded up because I really liked Nick finally. What a gratifying addition to this series! Nick was irredeemable in book one, barely redeemed in book two, but Heloise West made me feel for him so hard in this story. If you plan on reading this book, you really should read the first two before this one. Nick is really not living, only moving through his life, trying to stay numb, detached and connected to no one. Events bring him to the attention of Hank, a police officer and Nick is im ...more
Overall, I really like this series, but the one thing that makes it difficult to give a higher rating on this book is the lack of ease with which the reader can pick up where they left off. What does that mean exactly? To be clear, this is definitely not a standalone book; however, I’ve read the prior two books in the series and I still felt very disoriented about the continuity of the story. Maybe if I had recently read the prior book in the series it would have helped, but over a year later an ...more

Very suspensful, interesting story.

His Dark Reflection is the first book I've read by Heloise West. I knew this book was third in a series but after I finished reading it I found out that I should have read books one and two first. I honestly don't think it was a problem that I hadn't read the first two books. What I did have a problem with was the ending.

The story is complicated and very suspenseful; it pretty much kept me glued to me e-reader until finished it. I found the writing to be compel

This is the third book in a series and is best enjoyed when read in order.

Hank Axelrod is a homocide detective in a small New England town. He's struggling to keep his marriage together to his husband, Len, who had walked out to be with at least one other man in the past year. Len promises that he's not messing around, but Hank is rightfully suspicious. And, he's gone a lot. Now occupied with a John Doe case of extreme beating which seems to match a new homocide, a young father down on his luck

(Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews. Rated 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.)

I’m going to assume you know who this author is by now. After all, this is the third book I’ve personally reviewed by her, and I think someone at Love Bytes reviewed her other historical series as well. If you don’t know her books, you should definitely check them out.

For those of you who have followed along with me and the books I reviewed of hers previously, you might remember that there was a really bad FBI agent in them
Heloise West has created a world that I do not want to live in, but I want to make a tub of popcorn and watch continuously. Living in it would just stress me out too much unless I just played voyeur to Hank and Nick’s intimate scenes.

His Dark Reflection has layers and West just sucks you into them and before you know it your heart is beating way too fast. The mystery is complicated, messy, and deadly. West adds in an amazing set of secondary characters. Some of them you will crush on and others

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by Signal Boost Promotions for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.*

His Dark Reflection is Book 3 in Heloise West's Heart and Haven series. The author recommends not reading this book as a standalone. Personally, I don't know that it matters but I have read the previous three books, so I might have felt differently had I just read this one. One of the MC's is very involved in the first book, and slightly involved
Nick’s story

Nick is living in witness protection. There’s a hole in his heart for his sister that’s not getting any better. He’s dragged into a murder case by an eye patch wearing stripper, a dead neighbor he’s barely said hi to, and a (barely) married cop who it turns out is irresistible.

Hank is trying to hold on to his husband but knows it’s a losing battle. When too many coincidences bring him to Nick, he just wants to solve the case and keep Nick. Putting his own life on the line.

This story was so fucking confusing! Maybe if I had gotten a clear explanation about Nick's past, then I'd have cared about him and his present. As for Hank, I couldn't really sympathize with his relationship problem with Len. And his relationship with Nick was formed so quickly and not really clear, too.

This is not a standalone, but the third in the series--you really need to read Heart and Haven 1 and 2 before this one.
