Twenty-eight year-old Evangeline and her professor Cole, fall for each other, and that’s far from the end of the story. Between kinky sex, mysterious masks, and a car crash - her past catches up with her quickly, bringing along her former boyfriend Carter and the rest of the skeletons in her closet. This full length story has ample plot depth with strong writing – you can clearly see everything: the clothes, facial expressions and body language. Skillfully executed, the tone and cadence of the conversations take an extra level of expertise that Lauren Runow pulls off impressively. Much of this expertise shows itself through the witty and realistic conversations throughout the novel. The adorable banter between a sick child and Carter is particularly touching and entertaining. With all of the kink, romance, and playfulness at the heart of Falling Into The Black, one might expect a liberal-minded ending, but that’s not the case. Falling Into The Black has a traditional Cinderella finish – a young woman with emotional baggage gets swept off her feet by a handsome guy with a big heart and great job who is also relentlessly head-over-heels in love with her. This story has marriage, babies, and matching tattoos, not necessarily in that order! Evangeline, Cole, and Carter enjoy each other as a sensual threesome, but insecurity, stinginess, and competitiveness keep them from remaining that way until the end. The ruthless angst that abuses the hearts and minds of each main character may come off as too strong. The men trade blows and stalk Evangeline possessively; waiting anxiously for her outside of their anonymous sex club or showing up uninvited and depressed on her door step. Regardless of its arguably conservative ending, there’s a surprise twist and other nuances that make Falling Into The Black special. With an extra layer of plot which seamlessly intertwines the past with the present while adding an emotionally touching depth, the three main characters develop naturally at a pace that makes sense. This story is perfect for readers who enjoy playful and passionate sexy romances with some threesome action without any homoerotic tendencies. Falling Into The Black is the second book in the Club Bridge Series. Lauren Runow is the author of multiple Adult Contemporary Romance novels.

Falling into the Black by Lauren Runow is an intense second chance romance mixed into a love triangle that blows your mind. It is the first book I have read by this writer and I am a believer, I will definitely check out some of her other books. On top of being a romance, it is also a delicious mix of erotica, chemistry, romance and … angst … with a sex club thrown in as well … So, Falling into the Black is the story of Evangeline “Angie”, Cole and Carter. They meet at the above mentioned sex club and there is instant connection there and BOTH of the guys are attracted to Evangeline. I have it really hard to choose between Cole and Carter as they are in some ways similar but in some ways different but both of them have staying power and it is first time in for ever that Evangeline feels she is ready to explore a relationship … I love the emotional rollercoaster that the writer is taking us on, the angst that all of the characters feel, their interactions and banter and of course, the history that is there, laying below it all … There are many twists and turns in the story and some might be predictable, still, I found it difficult to put the book down. It is a great read that you will not regret picking up!

Falling Into the Black by Lauren Runow is a story about second chances with a twist of a triangle This story will take you on a roller coaster ride of various emotions that will keep you engaged until the end. You will enjoy how this author has written this story in the point of view of all three characters. It is great when the author shows you three different perceptions of what is happening. These characters are true to life and connectable. They will pull you into their world from the first chapter on. You will enjoy the twists and turns that all three of these characters take you on. Find out what happens with this triangle. Ten years ago they said good-bye, it was painful, it just broke her. She decides she is going to start her life over. So she moves away from the lies, the pain. She just wants to start her life over which is what she was doing until her friend asked for a favor one night. She agrees to manage her friends club while she has her baby. The business is liberating, the company intoxicating, she was fascinated by what is happening at the club. Then she meets two masked men. They are her euphoria. One of them was the quiet director, his stares and whispers set her on fire. The other was a deep game player, a teacher of intimacy and figuratively The quiet one's secrecy excites her. She thought it was a game but little does she know, he knows who she is. Will she figure out his true identity before she falls for his best friend? The three of their relationships is hot, steamy and out of control when they are together. There are secrets that make it mysterious because she was left out. She has her own past and when that past comes back to stare her in the face what will she do? She has done her best to hide from her past, him, will he find her? His feelings have not changed for her but when she finds out who he really is behind the mask will she run? They make her feel so good, alive but will she fall for the wrong one? She is sassy and is not afraid to tell them what she wants. I enjoyed her character but not so much the other two. I know that there is always characters you don't care for in every story but I think that these two top it. It was like I wanted to yell at them to grow up, they play grow up games then they should act that way. Her character in my opinion grows throughout the story and it was great to see her at the end. The story surrounds the club business and it really did bring these characters together and made the story flow. You will need to read this story to get the full picture of what it is really about. I know that you won't want to miss reading it! I have read a few of Lauren Runow's books and but I think this is my favorite so far yet. I can't wait to see what she has for us readers next. Lauren lives in Northern California with her husband and two children. When she is not writing you can find her listening to music, reading or spending time with her children. You will enjoy this fast paced steamy story. It will pull you into their world and keep you wanting to find out what happens. You won't want to miss what happens in this triangle. I highly recommend this story as I know you won't want to miss this one.

Lauren Runow has done it again! She's written a unique story full of passion, angst, and love. I was definitely emotionally involved in this story and with these characters. It was impossible NOT to be. I honestly had no idea what this story was going to be about going in. Yes, I read the blurb, but it really doesn't even touch on all this story actually is. It's about second chances, and new beginnings. It's about no-strings attached sex, and first loves. It has everything that I could've hoped for within its pages. It drew me in and refused to let me go. This is my fifth book by this unbelievably talented author and I am still a huge fan. I look forward to reading her work long into the future.
