Listened to audio narrated well by Lorelei King. Yes she did it again! Love listening to King, she brings the characters to life every time. Her narration makes listening effortless.

First off Ryes Alexander Farrow grew up in terrible conditions and was repeatedly abused by his 'father.' Some scenes will be difficult for sensitive readers, but it gives amazing insight to the things that have driven Reyes actions in this series.

'Brighter than the Sun' spans from before he was born and shows us Reyes life and driving forces up through 'First Grave on the Right' during his time in a coma. I can't believe Jones stopped there, I did NOT want this book to end, especially there!

I admit that some of Reyes life was hard to read, but I really appreciated being able to see what was going on behind the scenes from Reyes' perspective and finally understanding some of his actions.

I wish that I had been able to read this earlier in the series, even though it would have given away some big things about Charley. For spoiler reasons, reading it after the eight book is best but you may want to go back and re-read all the books after reading this one and if I had the time I would. I hope Jones will give us more books from Reyes point of view.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

I loved hearing Reye's story through his eyes. What a terrible life he has led. It explains why he is mesmerized by Charley's light. Anyone would be when they have been through so much darkness. ( )

Hmmm, well, it was nice to see from Reyes perspective how the story evolved. The abbreviated version, obviously. But, it ended before I was ready. If she was going to stop there, it wasn’t very well placed at 8.5...

Also, Switzerland is neutral, dear author. NOT Sweden. Still annoying me. :/ ( )

Brighter than the Sun
4 Stars

This book chronicles the life and times of Alexander Reyes Farrow, the sexy son of Satan, and his undying love for Charley Davidson, the woman whose light and laughter kept him sane during the most torturous moments of his past.

Series note:While this is a prequel, it should be read after book #8 as knowledge of the characters and events leading up to book #1 are crucial to truly appreciating the extent of Reyes's perceptions and feelings for Charley.

Told from Reyes's point of view, this novella provides the information and insights into his character that are only hinted at in the full length novels. Thankfully, Jones spares us much of the horrific details of the abuse he suffered at the hands of his abductor, Earl Walker, and focuses instead on his encounters with Charley throughout her lifetime.

While the specifics of Reyes and Charley's romance will be familiar to anyone who has read the series, this novella highlights the depth and breadth of Reyes's feelings for her and demonstrates the extent to which she not only saved his life, but also made him into the man he is - one with the empathy and sympathy as well as the ferocity needed to be her partner in all things.

All in all, an amazing read and a must for all lovers of anything Reyes. ( )

Nice to have Reyes' back story... but it is very disturbing in some parts. I would have liked more of his insight from the other books as well. This book is not for the faint at heart. ( )

I'm curled up in a corner of the basement, shivering like a little bitch and licking my wounds from the latest encounter, when I hear my sister crying at the door.
