Series: The Blackness Series book 2 
Rating: 5 Stars 




Official Blurb:

As he enters the room looking like death personified, lifeless and haunting, she knows…blackness awaits.

Aaron Kavanagh is not to be trifled with. He’s powerful, commanding, fierce and currently homicidal. The only thing that matters in Kavanagh’s world is Shannon Kelly. She’s the beat of his heart (yes he has one) and the peace to the fury that constantly simmers within him. Without her, his life is empty and barren. Someone took what is his and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

Dylan Kellerman is lost. The love of his life has been ripped from him, leaving a tattered tortured shell of a man. On the brink of murderous insanity he must battle to find Shannon, even if she hates him. Dylan has betrayed her and he knows she won’t forgive his indiscretions. None of that matters now. All that matters is finding her. As long as she’s safe Dylan can continue to live a sad wasted existence without her by his side. Shannon brought Dylan back to life, without her in the world he’ll cease to exist.

Shannon Kelly is gone. Stolen from her home and loved ones, she must now fight. Fighting has never been an issue for her, but this is a new opponent that she isn’t prepared for…her past. When every reality she thought she knew is called into question, Shannon learns her life isn’t what she thought it was. With the promise of a future with Dylan stolen from her before her world implodes, Shannon must rely on the family that has protected her for the last thirteen years to come for her. She won’t win this fight on her own…Shannon is going to lose.

This novel is the continuation of Blackness Takes Over and cannot be read as a standalone.


Just when I thought I couldn’t love these characters anymore, this book blew my out of the water. The first book ended with such a cliffhanger I had to immediately go into book two. There were so many unanswered questions and things I needed to know. This book was amazing and I am giving it 5 stars.

So when the first book ends, tons of things were left unanswered. Who took Shannon? Did Kel really cheat on her? Why did Taylor play the victim card? Why did the guys not question Kel or Taylor? I literally wanted to scream multiple times in this book. The guys over reacted to a situation leaving an opening for Shannon AKA Kid to get taken from her home.

The first book was told by Kid alone but this book was told by Kid, Kavy, and Kel. So we got to see what was happening on all sides. How Kid was reacting to being taken and how the guys were doing everything they could to get to her. The love and bond that these characters have for each other is amazing. I loved how they all connect on different level but always have each other’s back no matter what.


This book is filled with so much that happens and I hate to give spoilers away. Let me just say READ THIS NOW!!! If you read the first one then you have to read this one. There is so much that happens and so many things revealed. Sometimes your mouth will be hanging open and other times you will be crying then you will be sitting on the edge of your seat. Every emotion possible is in this book and it couldn’t have turned out any better. I look forward to continuing this series!!
