I adore each and everyone of K. L. ‘s books and while her books are typically real life romances (you know the ones I’m talking about. . . Where the love stories don’t ask you to suspend your disbelief and they may be perfectly imperfect together but they are absolutely perfect for each other in all ways they just fit.) But with Black she gives us a new level. It starts off a little on the gritty side and I was applauding her choice to just jump right in and not sugar coat it for us, there is a mystery going on here and it revolves around the supressed memories of Shae. This story grips you from the first couple pages, the drive to figure out this mystery and pervades the love story becomes the driving force. Shae is coming to Chicago for a quest for answers as to what happened to her father and sister when she was 9. and also meeting up with her best friends Erin and JJ for a new start.
Erin and JJ know a little of Shae’s back-story but not the whole thing. They are this great support system for her. She finds a fantastic new job so things are looking up! (Just wait though!) Erin takes them to this hot club for her bachelorette party and Shae sees someone she recognizes. . . Rex had met Shae when she had just gotten into town and felt that spark. . . They didn’t exchange info so imagine her surprise when Rex is the owner of the club where Erin is having her party. . . The coincidences don’t stop there though! The pacing of this story is amazing! It’s fast paced, but how K. L. parcels out all the reveals and secrets and really develops the connections between characters takes us to a whole new level of storytelling. Its MARVELOUS!
There are so many twists and shocking moments that you cannot put this book down. I found myself frantically flipping pages just trying to see what happens next and once I got to the end I was left breathless! Yes, its different from most K. L. Grayson stories but it is her best yet! Shae and Rex are electric together and their chemistry crackles off the pages.
