”What would you do if the only man you ever loved was the son of the man that murdered your parents?”
In Addison Kline’s fiery romantic suspense novel, Averi Ford’s future collides with her past with ferocious intensity. Averi Ford and Colt McClain have loved each other since they were children. They both come from a broken past. Colt’s mother died when he was young, and Averi’s parents were taken from her at the tender age of five. The same man is responsible for both of their broken childhoods: Tom “Black Horse” McClain. He also happens to be Colt’s father. Now twenty years after the crimes that fractured both of their hearts, Black Horse is getting out of jail and he’s coming after the girl who testified against him: Averi, herself. Colt wants to hide her, but Averi refuses to run.
“Our past does not own us, and we owe it to our hearts to show the world that love can arise from the darkest of places. We just have to survive Black Horse to tell the tale.”
Wow the cover alone will make you start drooling before you even start this action packed read!
I could not put this book down. Such strong, compelling characters that will draw you into a world filled with anger, hurt, guilt, action, passion and love. Two people brought together by pain and tragedy trying to find something good worth holding on to.
You have Colton that has the pain and guilt on his shoulders by what his father has done. He is forever trying to come out of the shadow that his father has created, to be seen as his own man, and not as the son of a murderer “Black Horse”. The only light he has in his life is Averi. She is the only person he would do anything for. She has been his friend and love for most of his life. He couldn’t imagine a world without her and if something ever happened to her he doesn’t think that he would ever recover.
Averi has survived a lot in her life. After her parents and older brother were murdered before her eyes at the age of five you wouldn’t think anything or anyone could pull her out of the darkness that would come. The only thing that could was Colton. He has been there for her whole life and would go through anything to keep her safe. Their relationship has been a secret for years as she doesn’t feel her brothers would understand that she loves the man who murdered their parents. She loves them all and is trying to find the right time to let them know.
They have both lost those that they loved the most and both by the same man. They both want to avenge those murdered and the only way to be free is to kill the man responsible for their pain, Tom “Black Horse” McClain. Tom “Black Horse” is a character with so much hate he can’t see why anyone else should be happy when he isn’t and will go out of his way to make sure they are not.
I like how the author takes you back in time to show you how events played out in the past to get the characters to the stage they are at the beginning of the story. In this action packed read you are taken on a rollercoaster of events. From gun fights to burning buildings, just what will it take to take down Black Horse for good. Revenge and action go hand in hand with love and sex in this suspense driven read. There are so many twists and turns that you won’t see coming but will leave you hungry for more.
A smoking hot read that will leave you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. Would definitely recommend this book.
