The two main characters of this book and their plights intrigued me throughout. Black himself is very cold, detached, and emotionless which I truly felt and even connected. His presence is consuming and while he has an air of danger surrounding him the promise of his protection wraps you in a net of safety. His warnings of the kind of man he is are as unheeded by the reader as they are to Rose. Rose is desperate, longing and in need of love and care which as the reader I also felt and connected with. Her life is not pretty, it's the most grotesque part of the book, in my opinion, yet without it we wouldn't feel as strongly about her. The meat of the plot, the complex history coupled with the present provides a great story-one in which you want to sit down and just absorb.
The problem for me is the execution of this complex plot and the style of writing. I often found myself very confused as to what was happening with the characters and how certain actions even come to fruition. A lack of clear transitions and underdeveloped tangents of plot were found throughout the story. Structurally the writing is quite different for me. At times where I think the story was supposed to be cloaked in mystery it came off as confusing. There are few spots where plot points were never finished or inconsistent with previous action.
Black overall was on OK read for me. I'm intrigued to the point that I want to know where the story will go and see how the characters find their way. It's for fans of darker subject matter.
There’s something about once in a while rooting for the ultimate bad boy – a REALLY REALLY bad boy – that’s so energizing. Black isn’t noble and he works for really bad people and does really bad things, but Black has a place in my “literary world” of would be hero’s and even if he’s irredeemable, I need to know him. I’m practically doing a full re-read to write this review. Our other lead character, Rose, has a heartbreaking story and is very near her end when the story hits the present time.
So I’ll just get it out there – if you like a dark romantic suspense read Black is a #MustRead. The writing is solid and the dialogue fits the characters so well. And OH the PLOT! Smith leads us down a few roads, leading us to make assumptions about the characters, how they got where they got and why. There’s a few flashback moments, one with Black when he still called himself Liam that explains a lot about the direction his life was going when they met. Black and Rose have a short but rocky history. As Liam he was her only friend in high-school. But 5 years later, he becomes her reluctant savior. Her entrance back into his life is unwelcome at best. And boy did my heart ache for Rose. How she ended up where she did makes for some tummy twisting moments. So much of the story is about her recovery and Black is essential to it – he’s her new, but welcome, addiction.
There’s a great group of secondary characters that both support and antagonize our hero and heroine. There aren’t too many surprises about who and what these characters are. The good ones stay good, and the bad stay bad.Read more ›
Rose and Black were everything to each other. He was the untouchable bad boy at school, she was from the popular crowd but in one night that all changed. Their friendship was fast becoming dependency, so when she is unexpectedly pulled away from his world a darkness surrounds him.
Moving forward ten years later, Black is standing face to face with half the woman Rose used to be. Now a drug addict, living her life surrounded by an MC and in danger, Rose will do anything for her next hit to forget the past she is running from. But she is yet to realize the man standing in front of her is someone from her past.
“The Scream was like black calling black loneliness calling loneliness. I didn’t understand it, but I needed to find the source of it.”
Helping her to clean up her act as quick as possible is what Black needs to do. He doesn't want Rose seeing what he has become or even remembering who he is. The ups and downs of inner turmoil that he faces are brutal and frustrating. His self worth is nothing, he can’t bare for her to see him like this. He is the lowest of low, the bottom of the ladder, he is a hit man.
Slowly Rose and Black work with each other to repair themselves both with their own demons from the past and present. With everything coming to light can they both reveal their true selves to one another and start living a better life? Or will their secrets keep knocking them down?
