I review for Loves All Things Books and left this review with them on their page!

This is the first book I've read by Morgan Kearns. I wasn't sure how I was going to like it but I ended up thoroughly impressed. I felt like I was right there in the story experiencing everything. And the emotions, just...WOW! Tissues are a must when reading Fade to Black!

Kate has a great boyfriend and a wonderful new job as a news reporter. Rich is a miserable man in a horrible marriage. When the two are paired together on assignments, something happens. Rich finds a reason to smile again and Kate gets butterflies when Rich looks at her.

What a wonderful story about real life. Sometimes life just isn't fair but when you listen to your heart you open the door to many great and wonderful things.

Morgan Kearns is the Queen of Contemporary Romance!

Seriously! I cannot remember enjoying a contemporary romance as much as I did Fade to Black! I enjoyed Morgan's Paranormal romance Heart Ache and her two PNR shorts, but FtB blows them out of the water and it was her debut novel. After finishing the novel only a few hours ago, I feel like I'm having withdraws. Imagine the joy I felt learning that Rich, Kate, Nate, and Roxy are all back in book 2. I was elated.

As stated above, Fade to Black is Morgan's first novel. The story is set primarily in a news room. This aspect of the story is not only informing, it's fascinating. All of the things you learn while reading this book is genuine information. Morgan worked for 10 years as a journalist, and knows her stuff!

While that aspect of the story is great, the characters are even better!The character development is phenomenal Not only are Rich and Kate delightful characters, I found myself falling in love with Nate, Rich's best friend. Shea, Rich's wife/ex-wife, aka the bad guy, is a great villain. She's crazy, but somehow you still feel sorry for her in certain spots throughout the novel. The KHB crew is full of great characters.

Fade to black is romantic, suspenseful, and addictive. I didn't want to put it down. Despite being just under 500 pages, I devoured it in a very short time. It's entertaining and exciting. I laughed, wanted to choke characters, cry, and at one point felt like I was as depressed as Rich. If that's not the description of a good book, I don't know what is!

I don't know why I waited so long to read these, but you can bet I'll be starting book 2 ASAP! :)

Morgan Kearns thinks out of the box for this romance. This is not the standard "cookie cutter romance" novel.

Her story is thick with plot, and I truly did not know how it would all turn out. It kept me in suspense. The writing was fluid and the plot spellbinding. Once I started reading, it was hard to put down. The only reason I was able to put it down at night was because I was getting so tired, I was afraid I would miss something.

For whatever genre, you usually read, I recommend this book. The author has done an amazing job. I am looking forward to future books.

Fade to Black is a 'couldn't put the book down' read. This story grabbed me from the start. I loved the story line. It had mystery, romance, and humor. I found myself staying up late just to see what would happen next. This book is more than just a romance, it is also a thriller. I loved the thrilling aspect of this book. The story is fast paced and moves continually. I also loved the characters. They all bring something different to the table. Kate Callahan is the main character. She is a woman who knows what she wants most of the time. She is very likable and also relate-able. Kate has a dreamy boyfriend, Jesse, whom she loves but she is surprisingly drawn to her new co-worker, Rich Spensor. I had a hard time choosing who I thought Kate should be with. I loved Jesse and Rich. They both had flaws but who doesn't? Morgan Kearns wrote their characters in such a way any girl would have trouble choosing. I would definitely recommend this book to you. If you want to read a thrilling romance this book is it!

Fade to Black, the first book in Morgan Kearns series Deadlines and Diamonds, revolves around four main characters, Kate Callahan, her childhood sweetheart Jesse Vasquez, Rich Spencer, and his wife Shea. Kate and Jesse are planning to wed, eventually, but their plans are put on hold when Kate starts a new job at KHB TV. There she meets her cameraman, Rich Spencer, married to his highschool sweetheart who is not so sweet anymore. Kate and Rich are instantly attracted to each other but do not act on their feelings because Kate really does love Jesse and Rich believes marriage is sacred and should last forever. Problems arise for both couples when Jesse's and Shea's trust and jealousy issues take hold. As the story unfolds Kate and Rich come to rely on each other for friendship and support but continue to rein in their attraction to each other, while Shea feels forced into actions that will change all four of their lives forever.

This book intrigued me from the very beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I had finished it. Kate and Jesse's romance throughout the story has it's ups and downs but never really waivers, while Rich's life is filled with angst and sorrow and it's hard not to sneek a peek ahead to see if we will ever know what makes Shea tick.

Fade to Black would not be a Romance Novel without an HEA, but getting there was more enjoyable than I had ever anticipated and I am looking forward to reading more.
