At twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents' death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.

Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life,

The minute Blue Skies noticed Clarinda James, he knew she was special. He had no idea she was blind or that even though she could hear his voice and was interested, she had no clue it was mutual. After a few disastrous meetings that still left their interest in one another in the air, Clary finds out her sister has been behind a series of mishaps and that her life was a lie. When Blue finds Clary under the protection of his MC club, he has no doubt she will one day be his. However Clary deserves ...more

This is easily my favourite book from this series! I loved that it featured a blind h with a possessive-almost-obsessive alpha h with me-Tarzan-you-jane mentality. The last couple of biker reads I had were pretty intense with the grit, action and damaged MCs so it was refreshing to read an MC book that toned down the crazy. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved the secondary characters, it was great to read cameos of MCs from the previous two books. I do wish that the H's

Four Stars for Blue and Clary

I'm not sure what it is about this series but it never fails me. It's a very light hearted MC Romance series but I love it all the same. The characters stick with you and the men love and respect their one true woman.
Blue has wanted that world ending kind of love for a long time. With dirty blonde hair and piercing blue eyes tons of women have wanted him but none of them have been worth keep until he meets Clary.

2.0 RATING- I know several of my GR loves this series. I do not. I'm not sure why in the world I bought and read this. The first book in the series was a DNF for me (the first book I ever returned to Amazon for a refund). Unfortunately, this author just doesn't work for me in a major way. I will definitely remember that in the future before my one-clicker gets a way from me.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐


Lila Rose has done a wonderful job describing the 'coming alive' of Clary, a young woman who was emotionally traumatized and physically injured by a tragic event at an impressionable age.

Clary lost her sight, her parents and her independence at an age where the world should have opened up for her, but instead it closed itself off. Dependent entirely on her sister she goes through life for the next five years trying hard not to be any more of a bu

I enjoyed this book, however what started off really good, turned into a bit of a ' oh come the hell on' for me until about 30%, then it sped up and the drama increased only to have the main suspense storyline to end surprisingly early on and in my opinion it was a bit of an anti-climax. Then it plodded along and suddenly it was all 'OMG!" and the drama picked again and it was rush, rush, rush till the end!

I like my MC heroes to be so OTT in lust

I loved this book!

The Hawks MC have gone straight, one by one the brothers are finding and fighting for love.  This story had Blue and Clary missing each other, over and over.  As soon as one of them gave up they would again meet and both felt that spark.

Clary was amazing.  Even when the hits kept coming she stood strong.  Helped that she found her "people" in the club, their women and Julien and Mattie.  Her honesty was incredible, and the passion she gave herself over t

So many plus plus stars... This book was awesome

When this book was released I savored it, cause I didn't want to read it yet. But then I just couldn't wait anymore.
And I was not disappointed. Lila Rose this series is AWESOME!!! From the first book till this one.

I loved Clary and Blue's story!
From the first page when she was listening for him in the café and sensing him (his scent) I was hooked.
Wanted to throat punch her sister though, seriously!!!
But this book had all my favorite characters, Julian, Deanna, Zara, Talon, Grizz and then

Out of all the books in this series this one is my favorite, Blue his thoughts are those of a man who's about to get whipped by his woman, "why did I have to lose my balls when feelings came into play? I swear Clary wore a new necklace with my hairy sack swinging around her neck." Clary that girl is a go-getter she has precision and oomph to get what she wants, "he was already hard, and I liked I'd done that to him. I managed one stroke in before his hand went over mine.

More 'family love' and 'girl time'...
Fans of this series are gonna be thrilled to get more Hell Mouth and Julian's dirty pet names, my fave in this book was 'dicksicle'. This crazy but loving group had me giggle-snorting at their misfire mishaps and fifty-shades pranks. This dirty-talkin' bunch of alpha bad-arsed-bikers have found a place in my heart and I can't get enough of them. This was my favorite book in the series so far. Clary is an awesome character. It was incredible to see her t

This was the best book in the series in my opinion. The third book is about Blue and Clary. The story is quite intense with lots of dramatic action and a good sub plot. All the gang are still in the story. Griz had been my favourite but OMG....Blue is THE man! He is alpha, badass, sweet, hot, loyal, protective and possessive in the best way. Clary is beautifully written, you see her character develop beautifully and she is thoroughly likeable from start to finish.

Wow. That's all there is to say about this. I know it seems that I say the same thing each time but Lila can do no wrong with her writing. I love her to death. If you haven't started any of her Hawk's MC series, you need to. Seriously. It's funny and tear jerking all at the same time. These men are hawt alphas with a heart of gold. I love them. Anyone who knows me knows that I am in love with Talon (Holding Out) but Blue just snuck up there and is now standing right next to him.
What happened?? I enjoyed the first two in the series but this one was so weak; both in character dynamics and storyline. The conflict(s) felt hastily thrown together. The romance was more sex based then anything and even the sex scenes were formulaic and unbelievably cheesy.It honestly felt like someone else wrote this with Rose because there were two different 'voices' and you could see when they changed.

Very disappointed over all.

Yass Blue has finally gotten what he wanted for a long time a woman he loves as much as his brothers love their women. I know one thing Clary, sister Amy was an evil bitch! For the way she treated her sister if it wasn’t for Blue Skies and his family, I think she wouldn’t have gotten her eyesight back. For five years she was BLIND which she didn’t have to be if she would’ve gotten the procedure done once she was out of the hospital, you know family can be wo

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING CHARACTERS :D Wow, so impressed - I read three of her books today, and I can't stop, someone help me haha.

Hands down, this was my favorite book of this series - Oh sweet Blue. I found him charming since he first came into the picture trying to get onto Talon's woman, not because of that of course, rather because his sense of humor, his fierceness and loyalty brought me to my knees.
The storyline was great, who would have thought her sister would be up to this - so

I highly recommend reading this series versus listening to the audiobook. The female narrator is awful!!!!! For a detailed explanation, read my review of prior installments.

3.5 Stars.

If you're looking for a enjoyable quick read, to put a smile on your face, this one here is for you.

I laughed a bit and smiled a lot while reading this book.
Blue was really sweet and I liked him a lot.
I find some female MC's really hard to like and rate a book low just because of them. However, Clary was smart and funny and I liked her.

Now, there was a thing which kinda pushed my buttons.

'My woman'

I'm sorry, I really am. After a hundredth time, I kinda got fed up with it.
And when I thought nothing will annoy me more than 'my woman', I came acros

4.5 "Beautiful Blue" Stars

Black Out was such a refreshing twist on the recently popular MC novels. I am still surprised by how much I enjoyed this book mostly because I found myself laughing and just enjoying the characters early on. It was an adventure and just plain fun to read, with some off the charts steamy moments. Perhaps Clary’s blindness makes her more endearing from the get go, at least for me, but her sweet naivety and vulnerability could win anyone over. It’s nreview*

I have been patiently waiting for Blue's story. I GOT IT!!! Woo hoo! I have loved Blue since Holding Out. Sorry, but I first wanted him w Zara *cringing* don't hate me! He is so sweet and sexy, what girl wouldn't root for him from the beginning? Ok enough about my crush on Blue...

This was actually really close to a 4 or 5 star read for me. I couldn't put the book down for about the fist 12 chapters then it just kind of stalled a little for me, unfortunately there was also way too much stupid crap from Zara and crew for me especially at the end. I didn't care for Zara about half way through her book because she was so dense, I mean everyone needs to go to a bar and get drunk putting people in danger while protecting you when a psycho is after you.

The Best Story Yet

I've read almost all books in the Hawks mc world. This story is the best by far. This isn't a love at first sight story but it's a love at first scent story. Charisma is partially blind and every Saturday at the coffee shop she comes across a scent that draws her. Blue has been going to the coffee shop every Saturday trying to catch the eye of a certain red head. Imagine his surprise when finds out that the woman that caught his eye is blind. That means he can't use his l

I've been reading a lot of MC books lately, yet Black Out has taken its place in my heart as one of my favorites because of its uniqueness.

Even though Clarinda's life changed in an instant she still found her inner strength to continue to live and has vowed to live to the fullest.

Blue's life hasn't been easy but since being in the Hawks MC he feels his life is going according to plan. That is, until he sees Clarinda in the café and from there he feels the need to make sure she's in his life.

And once again another awesome book for this series! Clarinda has been living with her sister since she lost her sight and her parents in a fire at 19. Five years later she lives a EXTREMELY sheltered life with no friends and minimal contact with the outside world.

I have to say, I'm a fan of this series. Loved Talon and Zara, my faves were and forever will be Deanna and Griz. But this one kinda sorta fell flat for me.

I was eager to start it. And I did. Then I read and read and read and... I kept looking at what % I was - I often do that - but then I was thinking, "oh, what now?" and I knew it was doomed when I put it down. I picked it up but couldn't finish.

Things seemed too... perfect. As crazy as it sounds. Everyone loved everyon
This is Blue and Clarinda's story.
Blue is a member of the Hawks MC club and meets Clarinda at a coffee shop they both frequent.
Clarinda is a young blind woman who lost her sight five years ago and has been living with her sister ever since.
I loved seeing Zara, Deanna, Ivy, and Julian again. The girls' sassy mouths are great for keeping one entertained.
I liked this book but didn't love it, and it is bugging me because I can't put my finger on why. That being said, it won't stop me f

OMFG what an absolutely beautiful, emotional story. Full of highs and lows and be warned you will need tissues when you read about Blue and Clarinda........
Absolutely loved it and lovedddddddd the connection between Clarinda and Julian as it really made my heart swell, as well as made me laugh at Julian's antics !! They say love can be blind and in this case it started out that way but family and money came in the way of Blue and Clarinda until Julian steps in to help Clarinda with her B**ch of
