What happens when nothing is as it seems?
Lexi Dare is on a one-woman mission to stay alive. Both at home and at work. Because how did she end up with a ring on her finger and an abuser in bed as she readies to hit the high point in her career? Everything should be perfect. Amazing job. Handsome fiancé. It’s all a disaster.
Parker Black is the brains behind Titan Group, an elite security firm. In his world, everything is ordered and controlled, except what he feels for his buddy’s girl. Something in her eye screams for help, but he has no idea what.
When Lexi disappears, Parker realizes what he should have known. The lines blur between friendships and work, and they must find each other to survive a terror attack that only Lexi can stop.
Nerds absolutely rule! That’s the first thing that came to mind when I finished reading BLACK DAWN! I have read all the preceding books in the Titan series but this blows the rest of them out of the water!
Parker Black is a former marine, but his true skills lay in the magic he performs with his computers. As the tech guy for the Titan Group, he is the best of the best and he’s also a force to reckon with in the underground hacker scene. As a computer geek, he sees life in black and white, which is why he has never gone after the woman he’s loved since he first met her.
Lexi Dare should be over the moon about her life. Engaged, with a great job as an elite hacker and about to sell her highly sought-after program, everything is perfect. Or is it? In reality, the only thing great about her life is that she has an amazing job and is about to sell her program. Everything else is a crapshoot because Lexi is stuck in an abusive relationship that gets steadily worse, but she can’t break away because he’s the only person offering her what she has always wanted – a sense of belonging, a family.
Unfortunately for Lexi, this is just the beginning. Lexi’s professional and personal lives are about fall apart spectacularly. Hunted by a terrorist organization for her revolutionary program and her exceptional skills and faced with an increasingly abusive fiance, Lexi has only one person she can turn to for help, her fiance’s friend Parker Black.
Parker is completely out of his element when it comes to his feelings for Lexi but one thing he knows is that he will move mountains to protect Lexi and when he discovers that the hacker he’s collaborated with for a very long time and Lexi are one and the same? All bets are off!
“I will kill to protect you. I will hunt what follows you … I will seek out anything that has its sights on you, and I will destroy it. I’m not a muscle hound with a hard-on for electronics. I’m a mercenary for the good guys, an analyst of life-and-death situations, and I will, I swear to Christ, maim, harm, and kill anything that wants what I care about.”
What’s not to love about BLACK DAWN? Parker is the perfect combo: brains and brawn, fiercely protective of Lexi and I swear I was swooning as they spoke geek stuff, even though I had no idea what they were talking about. Now, I loved Lexi and her skills, but I can’t help wondering how someone with so much confidence in her skills could stay in an abusive relationship for so long. In the end, after being shuffled around in the foster care system she wanted what everyone wants and found it in Parker and by extension, the rest of the Titan team and their families.
BLACK DAWN may not have all the action of the rest of the series but it’s easily my favorite.
