Title: Black Out
Author: Lila Rose

Genre: Fiction/Humorous/Romance/Erotica
Cover Designer: Louisa at LM Creations  
Release Date: December 15, 2014

At twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents' death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.  Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life, she realises it’s possible to experience the joy of warmth. In her darkness, Blue will become her beacon, her guide. Little does she know that she’ll need to count on Blue more than she thought she would.

She has to…if she wants to stay alive.

Blue Skies is on the lookout for a woman. Always there to support his brothers, Talon and Griz, he’s not a stranger to the craziness of love or life. Nor is he a stranger to making it clear that comments surrounding his name are out of bounds. Despite the often effed-up situations his brothers find themselves in as a result of their women, he’s more than happy to settle down when he finds his missing piece.

After three weeks of seeing a gorgeous redhead in a café, he refuses to let the opportunity pass him by. Building a tentative relationship with Clary is no easy task; she’s damaged. It’s not until he discovers the truth behind her darkness that he willing lays claim to her. He is determined to protect her, no matter the cost. She is irrefutably his.

Overall I found Black Out  to be an okay read. The story kept my attention, and I read it in my sitting however it left me underwhelmed and wanting more.  Lila Rose does a great job combining sarcasm, humor, drama, and betrayal giving us a story with an inevitable HEA.

Clarinda is blind and depends on her older sister Amy to care for her. When Amy has to work Clary is left at a coffee shop or the library during the day.  It is in the coffee shop where she meets Blue Skies, and they form a friendship of sorts.  On the days that Clary visit the library is under the care of Deanna, Matty, and Julian. I will say her trips to the library are some of my favorite scenes. But eventually the gang recognizes that Clary is being mistreated, so they take a special liking to her.

I love this character. Julian is positively my favorite. He antagonizes the members with his endearing nicknames but will be a fierce mama bear if you mess with his family.  His protective side showed in this book, and that was a pleasant surprise. Blue’s and Clary relationship came across as a little instant love, and I am not a fan of that.

I would recommend this book but with some reservations. If you like MC novels with humor and mild violence and mild sex, then this book is for you. I will continue to read the remaining books because there is something else going on that peeked my interest.

I was born in Brisbane, Australia. My step-dad was in the Army, which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age. Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wrote Senseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon I was back to the Hawks series with number two Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance, which is out now.
