DescriptionAt 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 realizes 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.


I received an ARC of this book as a beta reader.

This is the third book in the Hawks MC Series and my favorite one so far. It has more substance to it than the last book did. Clary is blind, lives with an evil sister, witnessed her parents’ death, and her only lifeline is meeting Julian and Deanna (a couple members of the girls club which mostly consists of the bikers’ women) at the library.

The characters are all unique and you can’t help but love ’em. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside. They would do anything for their women and anything to keep them safe. They take Clary under their wings to keep her safe even before she and Blue get together. Once they are together, he makes it clear that she will always be safe with him and that she will always be his.

I love Lila Rose’s sense of humor! I giggled a lot, laughed out loud (at work) once, and laughed until I cried once.

I recommend Black Out as long as you don’t mind swearing and there are some explicit sex scenes. 


About the Author:

Lila author picI 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 wroteSenseless 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.
