Pitch Black: A Romantic Thriller (Blackwood Security Book 1) By Elise Noble (Reviewed by Rochelle)

About Book:

Even a Diamond can be shattered…

After the owner of a security company is murdered, his sharp-edged wife goes on the run. Forced to abandon everything she holds dear – her home, her friends, her job in special ops – she builds a new life for herself in England. As Ashlyn Hale, she meets Luke, a handsome local who makes her realise just how lonely she is.

Yet, even in the sleepy village of Lower Foxford, the dark side of life dogs Diamond’s trail when the unthinkable strikes. Forced out of hiding, she races against time to save those she cares about. But is it too little, too late?

If you want sweetness and light and all things bright,
Diamond’s not the girl for you.
She’s got sass, she’s got snark, and she’s moody and dark,
As she does what a girl’s got to do.

Diamond isn’t polite. She’s got a filthy mouth to go with her dirty mind, and she doesn’t hold back. If you like your books a little milder, you may prefer the clean version of Pitch Black (no on-the-page dirty bits and no swearing) available through my author page.

My Review:

Not sure where to start on this one, but it just wasn’t what I thought.  And here is my review of this book.

In deciding to read this book; I looked at the reviews from different site and seen that it had a lot of 5 star rating, but I have to admit that I didn’t really feel the same.  This was the second time that I had read it, thinking maybe after seeing the reviews I would get a different view of it; but, I didn’t and I feel that the five star reviews are a little bit overboard on this, I know we all have different opinions.  I found the book to start out in a confused muddled way and there is a mystery of a murdered man that just gets referred to as my husband. My questions was how and who had done it.   I just could not relate to the characters, found them to leave me with too many unanswered questions or trying to see where the plot was leading me.  I felt that it became long-winded and didn’t go anywhere for most of the book.  A few chapters at the end of the book it seemed to picked up but let the main character hanging and me wondering.  My rating on this is a 3.5.

Happy reading everyone.
