She hopes that coming back to Chicago will bring back those memories and give her the answers she's been searching for all these years. While out with her friends one night though a sexy stranger catches her eye. He oozes sex appeal and the chemistry they share is off the charts. She knows he's the type of man that can ruin her so she wants to stay far away from him. She knows that she needs to find answers and he would only distract from what she need to do.
Rex Ambrosi is trying to lead is own life, not the life his father's expects him to be. Being an Ambrosi means certain things are expected of you. Being the son of the head of a crime family has your life already mapped out. He runs his own business in hopes of staying clear of the family business. When Shea enters his club, he knows there's something different about her. She's the total opposite of his usual types but there is just something about her that he must know about. He thought one night would be enough but when fate brings them together neither can deny the feelings they have.

Shae returned to Chicago for answers and she's about to get what she's looking for and it's not what she expected! This was a total edge of your seat thriller that I could not get enough of!! This was a HUGE 5 STAR READ and one I highly recommend!! GO ONE CLICK THIS NOW!!
Shae, I felt for this girl. Lost but searching. Guarded yet hopeful. On a new mission to find the missing pieces of her past- horrific as they may be. Which leads me to Rex. The mystery man she meets on the street. The man who knows her best friends. The man who can't stop thinking about her. The man who piece by piece breaks down Shae's walls. The man who accepts her for all that she is and all that she isn't. The man who has his own demons.
Rex and Shae together was something else. They were intense but also tender and sweet. AND SEXY! So, so sexy. One night turns into two and two turns into something neither of them could deny. As the relationship neither of them wanted turns serious, more and more of Shae's past starts coming back to her.
This book consumed me. Every sweet kiss, every plot twist, every layer of Rex and Shae that was revealed just pulled me further and further into the madness. And the last third of the book- holy wow! It was downright explosive. Everything moved so fast that my head was spinning and I was reading furiously to see what would happen next. And exhale....Let the record show that I want me some Rex and that I absolutely can not wait to see what happens with Dante!
KL Grayson didn’t pull any punches with Black. It was gritty and intense, included a touch of the taboo, and was altogether wonderful. It was also nothing I expected from KL Grayson. Her other books tended more toward the softer, sweeter side of romance, while this one toed the darker side. I loved it. From the very start of the book, I knew I was going to be in for quite a ride and I was not wrong.
It’s difficult to surprise me, so I was able to guess the direction the story was going, but it did not take away from the story at all. All of the secrets and lies and cover-ups made this story so much fun to read. I’m a sucker for a good romantic suspense and Black fit that bill well. I hope that KL Grayson continues to write books within this genre, as her signature sweet romance gave a lovely nuance to a genre that can sometimes venture into the unbelievable.
I particularly loved the characters in this book. Each of them was developed enough to feel complete, but there is still enough to learn about all of them, including Rex and Shae, the main characters, to leave plenty of things to learn throughout the rest of the series. I found myself especially curious about Shae’s roommates and hope to eventually learn more about who they are in addition to the character whose book was teased at the end of Black.
After devouring all of KL Grayson’s published works some months ago I found myself anticipating each of her releases since with great longing. Her works always find a way to tug at my heartstrings and it was no different with Black. I dare say that this book may be her best to date. Though I only finished this book a mere hour ago, I am already antsy to get my hands on the next one.
