#MustRead: Black Dawn
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.
Black Dawn can be read as a standalone and does not have a cliffhanger.

Confession time: I LOVE when a book is a perfect mix of Boy Meets Girl and The Bourne Identity. The entire Titan Series is just that – edge of your seat adventure/ steamy romance/ suspense thriller. SO GOOD.
I have been a fan of the Titan series for a while now. In each installment, you get Alpha Males, black op assignments, really, really bad guys and a heroine who is every bit the badass as the hero. You do not need to read them in order, but I promise that once you read one, you will start one-clicking other titles like a champ. Black Dawn, Book 6 in the series, may be my favorite to date: computer hackers, secret identities and forbidden love abound!
Like the rest of the series, Black Dawn is a fast paced, thrilling, extremely well written good time. Its one of those books that play out like a movie – a Summer Blockbuster action movie – and like many fans, I did not want to put the book down. Sometimes in the Contemporary Romance genre, settings and characters can become predictable: egotistical CEOS (with the kind of baggage you should probably check), new to the city innocent (with a broken heart and stubborn streak) meet in a major metropolis populated by millions, yet continue to cross paths daily… I am not knocking these plots – I have many books locked and loaded on my Kindle that follow that formula.
But Cristin Harber’s Titan series is SO MUCH MORE than your garden variety romance. There are action sequences and narrow escapes and weapons and undercover ops… it is both wonderfully entertaining and refreshingly uncommon. Do yourself a favor and read each title! Ideally, you would begin with Book 1 so that when the day comes that you pick up Parker’s story, you will be more than ready!
Black Dawn is about two undercover nerds who try to save the world – and each other – despite miles of hacker code between them. Anyone who is a closet nerd (or loves one) will appreciate the hi-tech humor and shout outs to a life lived in ones and zeroes. Much of Lexi’s back story deals with domestic abuse, so if that is a trigger for you – heads up. This is such an incredible tale of real world friendship and cyber world teamwork – I sincerely loved everything about it.
