Title: Reddest Black
Series: In the Shadows #7
Author: P.T. Michelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2017
Passion, betrayal, and heartache collide in an emotionally charged and dangerous chain of events that could unravel everything Sebastian and Talia have worked to overcome.
While looking forward to a bright future with the upcoming birth of their child, and navigating the often humorous and overbearingly protective aspects of approaching parenthood, Mister Black and Little Red manage to strengthen their passionate connection.
But connections can be severed in the most insidious ways, and the power couple must learn to trust each other’s instincts if they hope to uncover the threat determined to destroy their family.
Author’s Note: REDDEST BLACK can be read as a standalone story, but for the richest reading experience you can always start with the first book, MISTER BLACK, to see how Sebastian and Talia’s epic love story began.
I first read In the Shadows Series when I binge read the first 3 books last year. I was SO HAPPY that P.T. Michelle decided to continue Sebastian and Talia’s story in Black Platinum and Reddest Black! I freaking LOVE Sebastian and Talia’s story. It’s hot, sexy, intense, and suspenseful and Reddest Black is no different! (Minor spoilers ahead for the first 6 books in the series).
Reddest Black picks up a few months after Black Platinum ends. This is very much a romantic suspense series so this book had me on the edge of my seat the majority of the book. Someone out there is targeting Talia and it hits closer to home than expected. The twist in this book was perfect and it was one that I did not see coming. This is a very well written story and it was amazing how elements of previous books were brought back for this one. The side characters also played a huge role in this story, which I always appreciate.
Talia. Talia is a strong, independent heroine who doesn’t give in without a fight. She is a heroine that investigates until all the pieces finally fit together the way they should, despite the danger that comes with that. She is compassionate and thoughtful toward people, especially her husband, Sebastian. Talia is definitely one of my favorite heroines.
Sebastian. This man. I freaking love this sweet yet controlling alpha male. He will do anything to protect those he loves, especially when the one he loves most is carrying his child. I love that he wants to protect Talia, yet he doesn’t want to smother her. He really takes her skills and feelings into account when it comes down to it. He truly trusts his partner to take care of herself, even though he will do his damndest to always be the one to care for her. My heart broke with the personal struggle Sebastian deals with everyday, but I was also so proud of him when he truly accepted it as the gift it can be. Sebastian will forever hold a piece of my heart.
The Relationship. These two together are what dreams are made of. They give each other strength and they lift each other up. They are definitely hot in the bedroom. More so in previous books, but this book still has its steamy scenes too. They trust each other’s instincts and rely on each other. They are beautiful together. They always know what the other needs most.
I will always hope to get one more book with these two because I adore them so. I highly recommend this book to those who love: romantic suspense, forever kind of love stories, kickass pregnant heroines, and strong heroes.
