Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Shanora Williams comes a forbidden romance about a college woman who helplessly falls for her best friend's father.

Dear Mr. Black, 

I know you were hurting. I heard your cries for help. I wished over and over again that I could make it better, but as you stated, I was too inexperienced; too good for someone as bad as you. Perhaps you were right, but it didn't matter because what I did know was that I loved the way you felt - loved the way you smelled. I loved how hard you got for me, and when you called me your Little Knight. I had been madly in love with you ever since I was 12 years old, but I shouldn't have been. My best friend - your daughter - Isabelle would have hated it. I couldn't afford to lose her. Besides, you two had already lost enough. Losing Mrs. Black was the epitome. It's me, Chloe Knight. I wanted to be there for you no matter what, but Isabelle needed me, too, and she would have hated me if she ever found out I was sleeping with her father.

Dear Mr. Black was formerly titled the number one best seller, Tainted Black.

Masterful! please ignore some the biased reviews!

This was a realy great read. You just have to keep in mind, that its also a TABOO story!!!! so if you don't like that kind of thing, you can't just say its a bad book because your simply not into the dame style. If you don't like the fact that she's young dealing with an older man, just don't purchase it, and don't read it, It's just that simple. I like the way the author and the amazing voice actors did such a good job at making it sexy instead of cringe worthy. I'm also happy that the time frame is a bit longer than most, so the story is more gradual and believable, but strangely, I don't feel like there's too much fluff in between the plot lines. Shanora Williams makes some interesting story lines that don't bore me to tears and I'm diggin it. 5 stars!

I COULD HAVE REALLY ENJOYED BUT...

I typically like Honey and Cary but for this book not so much.. either the editing was really bad or they were dragging out there words and it annnoyed me. Could have been great but just ok

Don't waste your credit or your money

Struggle to finish. By the way I only made it halfway through. I found this difficult, not so much because of the subject matter. ( although that was challenging just because here he is a forty-year-old man who allegedly was going to show her ... the 20 year-old how a real man takes care of a woman and the two times that he has a sexual encounter with her he doesn't even attempt to make her first time enjoyable or comfortable. it's an immediate "insert here" experience. ) An older man watching a twelve-year-old girl grow into Womanhood. This was not Lolita by any means. That being said the female narrator "Honey Jones" was terrible I felt like she was reading the label on a can of soup. If I could this would get Negative Stars in all categories.

DNF

I normally don't review books, but if I can save anyone 12 hours of their life by writing this... I'll bite the bullet. This story was awful. This opinion has nothing to do with the age gap, I'm fine with taboo stories. This was garbage because there was absolutely no plot, no conflict, no character development, absolutely nothing of substance, and the completely bland narration gave absolutely no life to the story. I skipped multiple chapters then turned the reading speed up to 2.25x just to try to power through. I finally gave up at about 65%. The only good thing about this book is I didn't spend any money/credits to get it because it's included in Audible Escape. However, My advice, keep looking for your next read, avoid this if you value your time at all.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend it . I wish this book was a movie or TV show. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines.

Chole fell hard and quick for the two men in her young adult life. Issie should have chilled.She said she wanted her dad happy.

I knew the owner of the house would be Mr. Black or Issie. I thought Sterling was going to be the caretaker and Mr. Knight's love child.

Slow

Interesting Lolita premise and great promise initially but in the end the story moved too slowly. Could not finish.

The female narrator was not very good, monotone and using almost the same voice for each character. The male narrator was great.
