Fade to Black is written with an intense and dramatic voice that is rife with mounting tensions, conflicting emotions, and has the reader feeling as if life itself is spinning out of control. Morgan Kearns takes a simple story of two coworkers struggling with their attraction and turns it into a mysterious romance that has you on a rollercoaster ride full of sensations. There are parts of the story that left me wanting to rant at how manipulative Kate came across, acting like she was a teenager instead of a grown adult. Rich is this man who fights daily against his wife’s verbal, mental, emotional, and physical abuse even as he continually tries to refute his love for Kate. This is a hard-edged novel that people will either love or hate with an ending that is stunningly beautiful and will leave the reader breathless.
