I have had this sitting in my library for awhile. It was just sitting there, waiting for me to dive in and take a swim. I had been coming off a book HANGOVER like no other, and had attempted to read 3 books prior to this one. I guess it was the light from the cover that drew me in, that caused me to take the chance, whatever it was I am glad I did.

I didn't really know much about it. Because unless I know the reviewer will not give too much information about the book, I don't tend to read reviews before I read a book. I want to go into it blind. Without a book being recommended to me, all I go by when choosing a book is reviewer ratings and the blurb. So, while I didn't know it at the time, the blurb for this book proved to be one of the best I have seen. It was once I finished the book and I reread the blurb that it hit me. It was the perfect description. Here is part of it:

"Three fateful encounters...
Two heart-breaking tragedies...
One last chance to get it right."

This was another one of those books that makes you ponder after you have read it. It is not like any other I have read. And with the number of similar Romance novels out there, it is refreshing when something so different comes along. It is not a light, easy read. There are dark moments, and hard to read moments. The author did a great job dealing with the"emotional wreckage of a violent attack" as well as the attack itself. The heart wrenching pain Mikki and Crush feel is palpable. You can't help but root for them as individuals, but also as a couple.

"You can't choose the road you take; you can only hope to avoid the potholes."

I would recommend Black Box to anyone who wants to read a book about life's struggles; and how fate, luck, and love help to overcome, accept and live with them.

Oh man, where do I start with this review? I guess let me start of with saying wow, Cassia you have outdone yourself with this book. It is one of the most emotional and intense books that I have read in a long time. The characters in this book are just so broken and vulnerable. This book is so simple, yet so complex at the same time. It grabs your heart and just makes you feel so much for these two characters and for their struggles. I want to say THANK YOU to Cassia Leo for writing this book, for all the work she put into creating such an amazing and beautifully written book! A book that left me completely drained emotionally, I definitely shed many tears while reading this book.

The two main characters in this story are Crush and Mikki. Seems as if fate has a way of bringing these two together when they most need it, even when neither of them realizes it. There is so much to this plot and story that I wish I could write about but I feel as if it would give he whole story away, and you really need to discover this story yourself. Mikki, she's a young, broken girl dealing with her bipolar disorder and just trying to survive day to day. Crush himself is trying to find a way to just live day to day and trying to cope with his own demons from his own past. Join these two in discovering just how much they have in common, and how much they have helped each other without realizing it. Their journey and their stories will melt your heart, bring tears to your eyes and also break your heart. It is such an emotional and intense ride these two young people have had to deal with.

Fate has a funny way of bringing people into your life, sometimes you don't even know that they have helped you, or you may not even know that you did something to help someone.

Intricate and well-written. The writing about sexual assault and crafting music (both piano and guitar) felt authentic. However, what was not so authentic was Crush's (aka William Slayer) uber-wealthy background. Perhaps because I don't hail from that world and don't personally know anyone who comes from the background of a 1 percenter, Crush's ease with wealth and privilege seemed too over the top.

Another critique I have is the seemingly too quick "I love yous". Although Cassia Leo did lay some groundwork to present how Crush and Mikki could fall in love with each other, their relationship still went from zero to sixty in warp speed.

My final critique is the complete implausibility of Mikki and Crush meeting each other in random manners not once, not twice, but three times!!! With over a billion people on Earth, it was a little too convenient these two just happened to be there for each other twice over before they ever "met" each other, and then fate reuniting them one last time for all eternity. Sorry, this reader is not buying it.

Still, the world building is quite good, and as I previously stated, the prose is also quite good. It's just the overall plot I had a big problem with, and thus, "Black Box" loses some stars from this reader.

P.S. It's just a personal gripe, but I'm getting heartily sick of reading NA novels where the h is a virgin (or near enough to one) while the H is a complete man-whore. Authors, it's about balance. Too many NA novels lean too heavily in the virgin/manwhore direction that I am thisclose to cutting this genre out of my reading cycle.
