Angelica Turner’s life is in danger. If she wants to survive, she’ll have to turn to a man with violence in his eyes and death in his soul. A man she desires, yet desperately needs to resist if she doesn’t want her heart shattered again.
Hardened mercenary Colton Duchaine has wanted Angie since he first laid eyes on her, but he knows he’s the wrong kind of man for an innocent woman like her. His life is too dangerous, too unpredictable. He can never settle down.
But when someone wants Angie silenced, Colt will do whatever it takes to keep her alive. And when she’s safe, he’ll get out of her life for good.
Turns out that walking away is easier said than done. Angie is his—and Colt will stop at nothing to claim her for his own.

Black's Bandits #3
Review copy provided by publisher
I've come to love the Black's Bandits series every bit as much as the Hostile Operations Team series and the SEAL Team series of books from Lynn Raye Harris. I've wanted Colt and Angie to get together since we first met them and can only say it was totally worth the wait!
I loved Black Out from start to finish. I literally hated to put this book down as I was reading and really wished I could have read non-stop until I was finished. There has always been chemistry between Colt and Angie, and the fact their best friends Jace and Maddy are in a relationship, and keep throwing them together made me laugh out loud. I honestly loved the growth of Angie's character so much over this series. She really didn't seem that strong when we first met her in in Black List. I felt like she slowly was progressing to a strong woman, and she absolutely blew me away with her strength by the end of Black Out.
I have loved Colt from the first. Seriously the strong and yummy men Ian Black has working for him are just too Alpha for words...but in a really good way. Colt has the protective instinct I feel like all the men in these books have, and he wants to protect Angie from day one. I kinda loved the butted heads a bit in the beginning, but also loved Angie was stronger each passing day she spent with Colt. The chemistry between Colt and Angie built from the moment they met, and only got stronger after they made love for the first. Seriously all the happy sighs for this couple.
The suspense element was very strong in this story, and had a different feel from some of the other books in the series. It started from the very first page and I was pretty much on the edge of my seat trying to piece all the puzzle pieces together. I love when a book keeps me guessing, and Black Out did in spades. I also have to say I loved the time we got to spend with Ian Black. Seriously I'm counting down the minutes until we get his book! It's like I'm waiting for Mendez's book all over again (which was more than worth the wait)!!!
Black Out was definitely another winner from Lynn Raye Harris. Honestly, it is one of my favorite books I've ever read from her. I highly recommend this book and series to all fans of romantic suspense. I promise you won't be disappointed!
