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.
