Review: Waking to Black by V.H. Luis



He shattered my defenses, and I was fragile to begin with…

The first time I saw Adam Black, I was between the arms of a criminal, a gun to my throat and even then, I knew I was staring at the most dangerous man in the room.

Maybe it was his confident, cerulean eyes, or the sex appeal radiating from his pores like heat waves on a scorching day, but by proximity alone he made my vision blur and my heart stammer.

The day I was nearly killed in a bank hold-up, I began to live—because of him.

Now, I’m praying for the first time in years, hoping the scars of my past, the secrets I keep, don’t interfere with my future…


A romance that is as erotic as it is emotional, Waking to Black is a power debut to a new series. Reminiscent of Megan Hart, it packs a punch with dynamic believable characters. Initially, the story may seem to be about a wealthy alpha male and the broken girl he takes an interest in. The story proves to be so much more than that.

The author is a talented writer, weaving a simple and yet intricate storyline around two equally as complex leads. Her descriptions are so well written the reader can feel their emotions as their own, whether it be frustration, anxiety, fear, of happiness. It is difficult not to be swept away by the beautiful chaos of it all.

Waking to Black is a phenomenal start from a fresh author. An emotional rollercoaster, it will rip at your heartstrings until you think you cannot take it anymore. Accompanied by a cast of secondary characters with issues of their own, this debut is the powerful new erotic novel you didn’t know you were looking for and is impossible to put down.

Be warned, however. The story ends in a cliffhanger to be continued in the next novel. If you have a hard time waiting, I recommend waiting til the second novel’s release.
