My Rating:

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.
My person is MISTER BLACK.
I didn’t know him by that name when I first met him.
I didn’t know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.
He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.
I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.
Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other’s lives.

When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter,
stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.

Big thank you to the author for sharing a copy of Mister Black in exchange for an honest review.

With a dramatic introduction, Mister Black drew me in from the beginning. There was something about Talia that made me want to coddle her, and towards the end of the book I was grateful for the snippet into her past, that helped me understand what that something was.

It would be lying to say that this wasn't sexy. I like to think that I'm not the "alpha male" type, however, Mr. Black's domineering demeanor kept me wanting more of him. It was well into the hours of the morning when I finally finished this book because I couldn't put it down.

There were two things that bothered me, however. Firstly, the Fifty Shades of Grey formula that made me feel as though that was the book I was reading. Albeit, I'm talking smut scenes here, but Mr. Black and Mr. Grey's names could have been interchangeable. Secondly, the book stops just as the story's plot comes to head, leaving the reader with little actual story and needing to purchase the next installment to get a.) more character development, and b.) a resolution. Don't get me wrong; I love a good cliffhanger, but I would have been satisfied with a bit more plot.

Character wise, I more intrigued by the Blake family and Sebastian than Talia.

Mina Blake's roommate has committed suicide and Talia is out to figure out why. Mina does open up to Talia with the help of Mr. Black, and I'm curious to find out if Talia will keep true to her word and help Mina, or if things will go awry. Hopefully Mina's side of the story will continue, but if not, I do hope the author will consider giving Mina her own novella.

And Sebastian... If you're quiet enough you might hear panties dropping around the world. He's mysterious, intuitive, sexy, and from what I gather, a killing machine. Now I'm just curious to know how he came to be all of those things.

While smut laden, there are multiple stories within this book that I'll happily buy the second installment to get more of. I liked the authors voice and will be looking for more to read from her.
