Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insid

4.5 Stars. Sebastian and Talia meet again a few years after their special masquerade night and this time, the past is gunning for them both. The plot kept me interested and firmly on the hook even though there's a little more predictability in this one. Great pacing and just enough suspense to keep me guessing. The characters had the opportunity to grow as individuals and as a unit. Sebastian is quite the dirty talker and the way he and Talia come together almost singed my iPad. The secondary ch ...more

I enjoyed this book a lot.

However, there were a couple of things that bugged me:
1 - The end was too abrupt for my taste
2 - The heroine's reactions (view spoiler) were not believable. I had a hard time believing that someone in real life would have the same mind set and attitudes.

Other than that, it was a pretty nice and entertaining read.

Mister Black (In the Shadows #1) - 3 stars
Michelle ♥ The Romance Vault ♥
So if you paid attention in Mister Black you'll have found out some reasons behind some actions as they come to light in Scarlett Red. Bloody brilliantly linking and plot building is all I'll say!

Now P.T. threw me a loop with the start, WHAT THE HELL! Did not expect that start at all after the ending of Mister Black but hey ho two pages and I was completely immersed again. The reveals in this book are perfectly done, but you are totally still left on the edge of that cliff wanting to know more.

The first part of this second book was very slow and pissed me off for most of the time!!
But the second half was really great, all the things I wanted to happen to improve the story actually happened.
Finally the H and h opened up and began showing their feelings...and many questions were answered...and the sex was hot!!

This book picks up 3 year after book 1...but to me it seemed like 30 years has passed, because the way the writer had written the heroine and her activities for the first

I feel like this was a completely different story than book 1 was, I mean was.

There were parts that matched up but there were parts that really didn’t. I won’t be continuing the series.

It was ok but it just threw me off. The narration was ok again she does a great job with the characters I feel that was why I finished because I really wasn’t connecting with the characters at all.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

My Review:

My god! Scarlett Red was even better than the first book. I didn’t think it would be possible, but it happened. And, I must admit, I am in love with this series and the characters. P.T. Michelle has really created a H-O-T-T-T new series I just can’t get enough of.

I must say this one also took me a bit by surprise. I wasn’t expecting that twist, and I believe Michelle did a great job building up to that. Though I did figure a few things out in the story, there was one factor tha

Another hard review to write...

I'm disappointed, there I said it.

Why, why, oh why did the author go in the direction she did?!?!? At the end of the first book we are left with a cliffhanger. Not only that but we had the drug king pen issue. I was expecting the second book to pick up from there and delve deeper into those story lines.

This second book moves us forward in the future. We now have other suspenseful story lines to read about. Late in the book we do get some deets relating to the cli
Wont pursue the third book. Cant get any connection with these characters and I will probably end up dumping the next book so its time to know when to stop.

4 Sexy Stars.

I enjoyed this more than the first book, probably because we get a little of Sebastian's POV throughout the book. He is definitely one sexy domineering alpha and I love reading his thoughts. Talia's character has grown, I still don't understand her reluctance on sharing her real name for most of the book but whatever. There is a mystery to be solved throughout this story and a serial killer targeting Talia look a likes to be caught. And let's not forget some real steamy scenes Bash
After reading Mister Black, I couldn't wait to start part 2 Here- The chemistry Between Sebastian and Talia's totally hot! But it also freaks her out a bit, But They go waaaay back- He just wasn't getting All the dots connected until this story, with a little help from his sister he's figuring it all out. I just can't wait for them to get their sh¡# straight! Like Sebastian says :What we have,we have in Spades babe. Great story,Great characters and off the charts sex appeal-5 Stars
And so it goes! Whoa, Just when you think you got a handle on whats going on, another twist!!! I loved the 1st book story line! So far the perfect mix of Hot SEX, chemistry, emotion, intrigue,
And " Sebastian" He is so freakin HOT! Sigh...
A cliffy, but well worth the wait!!!
Yeah, it's ALL about the guy for me! Lol..
Hope the next one is (coming) soon!

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.

She’s done it again! If Mister Black left me dangling on a precipice, the follow up has had me sitting on the edge of my seat throughout this book which I guarantee you is beyond perfect! This isn't a standalone novel, so unless you’ve read the first book, don’t attempt to read this one because every small detail in this well thought out plot is of extreme importance from beginning to end.

This series is brilliant. I honestly didn’t expect to like it so much.

Sebastian and Talia met the night her life changed forever. Those few minutes with him give her some kind of purpose to fight and get over the tragedy.

When they meet again, 8 years later, none of them has any idea who the other is but it’s like they can’t stay away from each other.

One night of passion will leave an even bigger imprint on Talia than that brief meeting in the past, especially when she realizes who Mr.Black real

Book Review - Scarlett Red by P T Michelle - ***** the plot thickens stars

When you get a series of novellas/books that blow you away with the first part, you are always wary of the next bit not reaching the same potential, but don’t worry, because Scarlett Red is full of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat and glued to your kindle for hours.

More than a novella like it was originally intended to be, obviously because the characters had a lot to inform us of, Scarlett Red starts
Nov 19, 2014 rated it it was amazing

I loved this even more than the first one! I think it's because I love my mystery/suspenseful books mixed in with romance and this was one of those books for me.

Scarlett Red takes place three years later and it starts of with Sebastian's POV. Through his POV - which is a small flashback in the first half - we learn about what really happened to his mother. It doesn't completely fill in the blanks that were created from book one but it still gives me a picture of what Sebastian went thr

Hotness rating 4 out of 5

Let me start by saying when I read Mister Black, book #1, of the In the Shadows series by P.T. Michelle I was pretty sure any future books couldn't live up to the love I had for that book. Scarlett Red was every bit as good!

I have to admit Ms. Michelle had me reeling at the beginning of this book. I kind of liked Bash's cocky, carefree personality, but I think I struggled as much as Talia did with feelings of cheating whenever I would admit to myself that Bash was prett

" He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper"

Scarlett Red is a stunner of a book. I got weaved in an increasingly complicated plot with completely out of the blue twists and turns. When I said that the previous book, Mr. Black was sort of a prequel to this , I had no idea it contained so much needed to understand this one. To say it is filled with clues and hints is an understatement.

Good God almighty! It's a cold fall day here and I needed my damn air conditioner while reading this one. You thought the sex in Mister Black was HOT? I don't think there is a word for how hot the love scenes are in this book! Sexual chemistry, hot dialogue and innuendos up the wazoo.

We meet back up with Talia and Sebastian in Scarlett Red and get some questions answered. But stop right there, you must read the first book in order to follow this one. It's not a standalone. I loved PT Michelle's

I loved 'Mister Black' it was so much more than I expected and I couldn't wait for 'Scarlett Red' and while I loved this book, I really did hence the 4.5 stars and I'm eagerly awaiting 'Blackest Red' there were a couple of things I didn't really like about it but I can't mention them without spoiling the story it also seemed a little contrived in places but that's not to say it's not a brilliant read because it is.

Well this is definitely a pay attention to each novel. Black and Talia have a lot of dark issues they need to let go of together. There journey is rough because they have to learn to let go and trust. They don't know what they feel about each other, but they can't let go either. Tears your heart apart these two trying to make it right. Lots of darkness but hopefully their rainbow will come.

The first half of the book went by at a slow pace and the characters were irritating me. Finally the second half of the book something happened both character and story wise. But again it all felt flat with the ending.

The plot thickens, so many secrets. Angst and frustrating. Red wants forever and he won't commit. The sex is off the scale,

Are you in a hurry, Mister Black?” I tease as he lays me down on the bed. Reaching for the button on my shorts, he undoes it and the zipper in record time. “On the contrary, I’m just laying the table. Fine dining needs to be served with just the right accouterments.” He tugs my shorts off in one swift movement,

loving the suspense.

I love the characters. The passion is hawt. The mystery is a little unusual. Not to say a psychopath might have more than one reason to kill, but it was a little far fetched. Don't want to ruin it.
But I loved it. Glad I read it again.

Honestly I loved the characters but if I didn't I might rate it a little lower. It is a little over the top with coincidences.

After meeting Sebastian in Mister Black, I have been eager to get my hands on Scarlett Red and I can tell you it was definitely worth it!! Although 3 years have passed since the last time they saw one another, they still think about each other and hoping to cross paths again.

In Scarlett Red, I saw more about both Talia and Sebastian’s pasts and I loved getting to know each of them a bit better. They have demons that have haunted them that still affe
