Title : BLACK HORSE
Author : Addison Kline
"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."
Black Horse Release Date will be May 28th.
After reading the synopsis, I couldn't wait to read this book. It sounded great. It was on okay read. It did leave me a little disappointed though. I really liked Averi, Colton, Tim, Randy, and Shelly.
Averi Ford and Colton McClain have been friends since they were in diapers. They moved from friends to lovers in high school. And have been together for over a decade. but his father, Tom "Black Horse" McClain murdered her parents and her oldest brother. He also murdered his wife, Colton's mom, and he caused the death of Colton's grandmother.
Black Horse has been in prison for 20 years, but he is getting release now.
On top of the Black Horse drama, Averi also has to deal with her brother, Randy, hating Colt. Randy thinks Colt will be like his father.
"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 only have to survive to tell the tale."
The reason for the 3.5 stars is that things just didn't add up. Shelly, and Tim, both say they like each other, then a few hours later they act like they've been together for awhile. Black Horse had warrants out for him in Oklahoma, but stood trial for them in Texas. Black Horse gets shot in the shin and shoulder, but no mention of the shin wound while the bullet is taken out of his shoulder. They tell Averi she'll get out of the hospital in about 72 hours, after just having a skin graft for burns on her legs. And the guys being injured, especially Colt's stomach injury, but an hour later, it doesn't affect him?
The last thing is Black Horse just won't die. (small spoiler warning). Even when he is burning inside a building that collapsed on him because of the fire.
I really enjoyed the book until about the half way mark, that's when things didn't start to add up. I really wanted to love this book, but it just wasn't for me. That's okay though. It does have a lot of 5 stars, so I am in the minority.
