This book will not be for everyone. In fact, I was part way through it & debated stopping but wanted to see where the story went. Ultimately, I liked it. I felt that it provided a good story with well-thought out characters & a situation that we could see broadcast on any news program. I have read other books in the Black Light series that featured Cash & Samantha but hadn't caught up with their story, so I was glad to finally do so. At times I found it confronting & uncomfortable but the ultimate HEA made it all worthwhile.
After Livia Grant brought us joy with Jaxon, Chase and Emma here we continue to be introduce to more great characters in the new secret BDSM club Black Light/Runway, So this one is a little more darker. On opening night the band Crushing Stones are playing at Runway and Samantha Stone is going to say goodbye for the last time her old childhood friend Jonah Carter who became the bands lead singer Cash. Cash sees Samantha in the audience and after jumping into the crowd he asked his friend Jaxon to keep Sam from leaving the club as they have unfinished business, and so the secrets, lies and misunderstandings are slowly unravelled but not before some totally wrong actions are committed that are unpleasant to most, But the resulting punishment helps takes that edge of it but still not excusable. The torment that Sam puts herself through from the feeling of abandonment was sad and I’m happy that Jonah and her friend Emma help her through it all...helped me forgive Jonah that bit more for what he did. While this story is a little sad in parts as things that were done to either Jonah and Sam by the unsavoury actions of others come to light and how they come together at the end does brings tears of joy...love love love it.
