Author : Addison Kline
Genre : Romantic Suspense

"What would you do if the only man you ever loved was the son of the man that murdered your parents?"
In Addison Kline's fiery romantic suspense novel, Averi Ford's future collides with her past with ferocious intensity. Averi Ford and Colt McClain have loved each other since they were children. They both come from a broken past. Colt's mother died when he was young, and Averi's parents were taken from her at the tender age of five. The same man is responsible for both of their broken childhoods: Tom "Black Horse" McClain. He also happens to be Colt's father. Now twenty years after the crimes that fractured both of their hearts, Black Horse is getting out of jail and he's coming after the girl who testified against him: Averi, herself. Colt wants to hide her, but Averi refuses to run.
"Our past does not own us, and we owe it to our hearts to show the world that love can arise from the darkest of places. We just have to survive Black Horse to tell the tale."


4.5 Stars

Forbidden love. Tragic Death. Torn between family and love. One night Tom "Black Horse" McClain changed the course of many lives. Back when Averi was 7 she awoke to rocks being thrown at her window. When she got out of bed she saw her father already dead in bed and her mother murdered. Her oldest brother Seth grabbed her and hid her in a closet. He also lost his life protecting her that night. The sole survivor from inside the house it was Averi's testimony that finally put Black Horse behind bars. Fifteen years later Black Horse is about to get out of jail. While Colton and Averi have been together for years they have already had to hide from her bothers Randy and Tim. Will Randy and Tim finally accept their relationship and help keep Averi safe? Or will Averi and Colton be in the corner by themselves?

It's like a modern day Romeo and Juliet with a bit of a twist and better. I was sucked into Black Horse from the first page. While I'm not a huge fan of jumping back to the past it made the story seeing the past and how the relationship with Colton and the Fords came about, evolved, and in some cases dissolved. You laugh, cry, smile, and hope throughout the book. Twists, turn, and tragedy encompasses these characters at every turn. Colton is an amazing, complex character who continues years later to be judged by his father's actions. He witnessed more then anyone, yet being so young was of not help in his father receiving justice. Averi is such a strong woman who has been scarred from all she saw at 7 years old. Colton has been the one to watch and protect her all the years since. I look forward to reading more in this series and visiting all these characters.

5 Stars

  This is most definitely a book I will read more than once. I could not put it down to save my life. Addison Kline does it again, she hooks you with the awesome storyline and wonderful characters. She knows exactly how to draw the reader in and keep them interested to the very last word. Colt and Averi made such a great couple, I love the fight the two of them have to love one another.
  Colton McClain and Averi Ford's lives are intertwined from a very early age. They grow up and fall in love, but due to a tragic event, their love is unexpectable. Averi's brothers hate Colton and want to protect their sister from what they believe is a despicable man like his father Black Horse, the man who killed there parents. There is so much emotion as the couple struggles to be together.
  I enjoyed all the character in this book I felt like I knew them personally, I think the author did a great job depicting each character in so much depth and detail.
In the end all of  your questions are answered but it leaves plenty of room for more of the different players in the book to get there own series. I can't wait to read the next in the series!!!!
