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.

You know when you finish a book and your emotions are so over the place, you can’t even comprehend where to start when writing a review? Well that’s me at the moment; completely speechless and scatter-brained. I don’t know what to say that will give this book the justice and recognition it deserves.

Black left us heartbroken…

*ARC received from author as part of release blitz*

This book started by showing us what happened to Liam/Black that led to the cliffie ending from the first book. That was quite a cliffie, so it was nice to find out more what’s happened to him. After all, 5 years is a long time. During that time, Black inadvertently returned to the old life that he knew. But eventually, he found his way back to Rose/Red. And what happens after is them dealing with that. Black trying to grapple with the new thing

Rose and Black never had it easy and now that Black's memory is gone it seems as if they may never get their HEA. Raising three kids while pining away for a dead man has taken it's toll on Rose. She's lost everything except her friend Jake. When Black turns up alive but with no memory of Rose or anyone else things don't seem as if they are going to improve. This book have ups and downs and will have you questioning the love Rose thinks she has for Black.
While this is the conclusion to Rose and B

With T.L. Smith's new release Red ( Black #2), the craziness of Liam Black's life continues. Yes, you must read Black before you read Red. We were left with one heck of a cliffhanger at the end of Black and I couldn't wait to find out just how this twist would play out. This is turning into an interesting series and it feeds any fascination I might have with the dark side of humanity. Smith is a pro at leading the readers mind down a path and throwing surprises out to keep you guessing.

Another brilliant, on the edge read by T.L Smith

Black must be read first this is not a stand alone

We were left with one hell of a cliffhanger in Black, one that had you shouting Nooo and cursing the author. This dark edgy plot containing two people that hold a love for each other all consuming continues in RED and along with it the edginess and gripping plot we love.

5 Years later Black is no longer the man he was, yes he is still the dark dangerous man he always was but without a memory of his

I'm torn with this one. You have to have read Black in order to read this one.

So, we know Black's alive but has lost his memories. He's now Trace, serving a bikers' club, doing what he does best, surrender to darkness. They have filled him with lies and he can sense it but not enough to understand what is actually happening; all he knows is that he's good at killing and that blue eyes hunt him.

Soon he discovers the thruth, he has been manipulated and there's Rose waiting for him. He doesn

I was expecting for this book so eagerly, so desperately! I needed to know how Rose and Liam would find each others paths again and have the HEA! BUT…. and yes, but in caps! Because, Oh. My. God. This book had me so annoyed from the beginning, but the need to know how it would end kept me going, kept me hooked to the story despite all the things I didn’t like. Yes, there were so many things I didn’t like, and most of them are related to why I don’t like dark books. I don’t like torture, hard cor ...more

After the ending of Black is was gagging to read Red, as soon as it hit my kindle I started it and I haven't put it down all day I couldn't get enough of Liam Black.
Red is the continuation of Liam and Rose's story but is set five years on from Black. Liam woke up five years ago with no memories of his life before, his girlfriend Savannah is a constant by his side helping to fill in all the blanks he has about his life but something isn't right apart from the feel of his gun everything about his

For the love of almighty!!!
I have been waiting for “Red” to come out!!
Now that it's out! I was totally blown away by it.
Hell I was drawn in from the get go.
Yes it was painful at times. I was devastated the way Black ended!! So when I started to read Red it takes place 5 years later.
Aww my heart hurt so much!!! To see what Rose and Black had to go through. Would just about kill anyone!! Such an emotional read. Yet at the same time it was brill

Please read Black first , this book cannot be opened until you have read Black. I love the dual POV as i feel it makes us feel even more connected than we already are to the characters. This is a romance story that is gritty and hurts the characters and at times the reader. but it is all worth it as this book is brilliant. There is a lot of pent up emotions waiting to be released by these characters and the reconnection between them is tainted and beautiful all at the same time. You have to read ...more

5/5 - WOW!!! Just wow

This book picks up 5 years after the first book, Black. There’s a lot of really shitty assholes that are messing with Black. He has amnesia and can’t remember Rose. Can’t remember much.

So many freakin plot-twists! Loved them all.

Black and Rose’s love story is just as dark and screwed up as the first book. She’s trying to hold on and he’s trying to figure out what love is and if he can feel it ever.

Also, Jake.

Jake, Blacks BFF/ brother. He protected Rose and looked over he

Well, I certainly devoured that one quickly.

There was less awkwardness in the writing in this one. It starts five years after the first book, yeah, but it pretty much stays within months.

However, the push and pull of the characters became tiresome. She wanted him, yet he didn't want her. Then he remembers, and she pushes him away. Back and forth, this way and that... it was just frustrating.

I'm still not keen on the motorcycle-club mentality, either.

Then there's Rose. Ugh. How can she claim

5 ⭐'s for sureeeeee. After I finished Black I couldn't wait to get my hands on Red because of the cliff hanger at the end. Red definitely did not disappoint with all the twists and turns happening from the beginning. Yes there are many gruesome and violent situations but there is also a love so black that only those involved see it for the beauty it truly is. This is not a book for the soft hearts, it's dark, deep and twisted in so many ways some might not understand it! And for those that do un ...more

After I finished book one, I was left with my jaw hanging open and my head spinning. I could not believe that ending.
This book, book two, was just as good. The story unfolds and I couldn't get enough. I was pist and I wanted Black to unleash on everyone that ever did him wrong. This book was so good. I highly recommend. You wont be let down.

Nadia Debowska-Stephens (Obsessed by Books)
The highly anticipated follow up from Black and it does not disappoint. If I was clever and savvy my review would commence with a song; Amy Winehouse Back to Black, playing full blast as we learn how Liam has devolved back into Black. Five years of being lost in the present with no memories and surrounded by people he holds in contempt. Five years of finding joy only in the moments of utter black. The voice, the blue of her eyes haunting his dreams and making him aware there was something more b ...more

Oh....Em.....Gee...... No she did not end it that way!!! I think Im missing a few chapters, or a whole book...... Jake, poor Jake... where is book 3??? Someone get me a copy stat!!!

Red is the follow up to Black. And what a follow up it is. The Queen of twists and turns has yet again bent my mind into a million little pieces. Just when you think you have an idea of what is going on, out of left field comes a crazy curve ball that throws you off balance and leaves you scratching your head wonderin

I was dying for this book, so to say I devoured it would be an understatement. Gripping and tragic but a different feel than the first in the series and Black must be read first.

Here we are FIVE years later; we have one damaged soul and one broken. We start with Trace who doesn't know who he is only he found himself with a club and surrounded by people he doesn't recognize. He has a girlfriend he doesn't like but a job he feels is the right fit for him. Rose is surviving because she has to. With

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Once again Red is told from Dual perspectives and T.L Smith has nailed them both. I love that the reader has an insight into what both Characters are thinking and feeling and will take you on a journey that will make your head spin and leave you wanting.

I fell in love with Black and Rose in Black, and felt every bit of their Damaged souls. I was shattered throughout the book, until I got to the massive Cliffhanger at end and found myself yelling Nooo, It

WARNING: Black must be read before reading Red. If you have not read it yet, stop NOW!

Intense! If I had to sum it up in just one word that would be it. The cliffy that Black left off with had me pulling my hair out...

But Red gave back that intense passion that arose and Black shared, but he had to find his way back. Five years was a long time and without his memory, so much of the change that Rose helped with is gone. In Red, they both fight to

Red is book two in the Black series. It can not be read as a standalone, you must read Black first. I read Black and was excited to read Red. I read Black at the end of January and was a little confused when I first started reading Red. I had to do a quick skim of Black before restarting Red. Once I was reacquainted with the characters I was all set and ready to get sucked into the story.

The blurb doesn't give much a away so I'm a little scared that I might slip a give a spoiler away so I'm not

The characters were like robots reading from a terribly-written script with how detached they were. The story was so unrealistic. I honestly don’t see what’s so great about Black and why everybody wants him. This book made him out to be someone like Superman who’s invincible and powerful. Everything was just stupid IMO. DNF at 50%.

I Loved this book, the way book one ended was dying to find out what happens and it didn't disappoint me I got Mad, Sad, Annoyed....Loved how we get both POV...

But I have to say I love Liam and Jake, and I really can't wait for Jakes book after that ending!

Rose and Liam are becoming one of my fav Couples and i can't wait for more as their story isn't over :)

It's been five years since Rose lost the love of her life. Since then, she's been going through the motions of life because of her children and Jake, her best friend. He was Black's best friend first. He swore to protect her if anything happened to Black. And so, he was there for her, every moment of every day. For the past five years, Jake has been her rock. She knows he is no saint, but for her he's been her angel. Trace can feel something isn't right. From the moment he woke up five years ago ...more
