♕ KAT'S REVIEW ♕ (ARC) ♕ Black by K.L. Grayson

 Black by K.L. Grayson 
TITLE: Black
AUTHOR: K.L. Grayson 
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: June 29th, 2017
Family.
Everyone has one.
Some are close.
Some are dysfunctional.
Some are simply gone.

Nine-year-old Shae Black entered the Witness Protection Program after the murder of her father, mob boss Luca DiMarco. New name. New identity. And a ready-made family that had no idea who she really was. 

Fourteen years later, a letter from a ghost thrusts Shae back into the life she was forced to leave behind. As secrets unravel, revealing unexpected truths, Shae sees an opportunity to avenge her father’s death by destroying patriarch Sal Ambrosi, the man responsible for her father’s murder. Getting to the heart of the family will be difficult, but nothing and no one is going to stop her—not even the heirs to the Ambrosi family empire. 

She’s prepared for the two brothers, Dante and Rex, to put up a fight, but she isn’t at all prepared for the danger they will bring to her life and her heart. 

One will love her.
One will hate her.
One will vow to protect her.
One will vow to kill her.

All in the name of family.

K.L. Grayson resides in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO.  She is entertained daily by her extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes in a man.  Her entire life rests in the palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away furiously on her computer.  She has a love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy endings…and not particularly in that order.

♛ MY THOUGHTS: ♛ 
Black was very well written, you can tell this author is a seasoned writer in the way she delivers the story. The plot was intricate, and the pace moved at a steady rate. The only qualms I had about this book with it surrounding the mafia lifestyle I expected more angst, more bloodshed, but I enjoyed the dynamics between the two brothers and the fast burn romance between the heroine and the hero, their chemistry flew off the pages. I’d recommend this to readers wanting a breathtaking romance that would be somewhat called taboo as they come from two separate mafia families, their love oozed off the pages and made for an enjoyable read.
