RED – BLACK #2
BY T.L SMITH
A wound to the heart, a hole so deep.
Can it be fixed?
Or simply replaced?
People lie. Those closest to me, tell the most lies.
Do they not know who I am? What I’m capable of?
Sometimes I wonder if they do. Because when I unravel their lies, they will be delivered to the hell I once visited. And it won’t be pleasant.
4 stars – Gritty, dark and left me wanting more yet again !!!
After finishing Black, I was left reeling and couldn’t wait for this book to find out what was next for Black and Rose. This book did not disappoint in anyway and has cemented TL Smith as an automatic one click author for me.
After the ending of Black, Red picks up five years later. Presumed dead, Black doesn’t remember a thing and with no memories any further back then when he awoke he only knows himself as Trace but there has always been doubt in his mind that something isn’t right, he doesn’t belong. He is haunted by a voice and dreams of a blond haired, blue eyed girl which only makes him feel more like there is more he needs to know, that he has been lied to. The only solace he gets is with a gun in his hand and when things go black, then everything makes sense.
Rose has loved Black since she was sixteen years old. He has always held her heart and this hasn’t changed despite what happened on that night and the loss of the man she loves. She has been through enough heartache to last a lifetime, Jake has been there to support her, help her keep the family together but she still feels broken, the scars only serving as a reminder of what she has lost. Needing a focus, she starts a charity “Red” and its at this point a ghost from her past returns and everything she believed comes crashing down. Where has he been? Why doesn’t he know her?
As his memory starts to return, reality comes crashing down around him and Black realises that the last 5 years have been a lie, he has been manipulated and deceived. Rose has lived without him for all these years, she has survived what happened but it was just that surviving not living as she should be doing. How is Black going to fit into the family? Will he even want to? and will he be able to do just normal family stuff? What we do know is that Black’s love for Rose is as intense as ever and he will do anything to protect her, even letting the black consume him.
This is another fast paced book from TL Smith, dark and gritty with plenty of twists and turns and yet again I have been left wanting more. I can’t wait to read Jake’s story and find out what TL has in store for us next.
