"My name or me? Your choice."

A masquerade party-crasher with secrets.

A billionaire host determined to uncover them.

What happens when one night together changes everything?

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.

My person is Mister Black.

I didn't know him by that name when I first met him.

I didn't know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.

He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.

I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.

Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other's lives.

When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter, stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.

I read all my books on my nook. When I started reading the Alpha box set and came upon the Billianaire SEAL story I read the whole story in one setting I just couldn't put it down. Waiting for the part 2 hurry I really need a new fix. Loved both charatures. Keep them coming....

I got the first one, Mister Black because it is free. A quick read leaving you desperate for more. I read the first 3 books in this series in two days. I love the characters and can't wait for the next book to come out.

Well then. I see what all the fuss is about. I don't like young, virginal heroines because they're often portrayed in a very immature, childish way, and their dialogues just make them worse. The exact opposite was the case here. The way she spoke, the way she carried herself; she wasn't a timid, flaky female, and I loved that about her. Yes, she had baggage, but her character didn't use it at every opportunity to shy away from everyone. She kept a mysteriousness about her without coming off as pathetic. And wow, Sebastian. He made a big, good first impression in the foreword. For a then seventeen year old, he seemed mature beyond his years. If he was cute then, he was devastating as an adult – all raw passion, intense and mysterious. It took a while for the SEAL part to come to the fore, and I'm quite pleased that there was a little more emphasis on the fact he was military instead of some pampered billionaire who thinks money can buy everything and everyone. There were times I thought he recognized Talia, and then he'd say or do something that said he didn't. That push and pull is just a part of the magic between this pairing. Throw in a bit of BDSM-lite and the sex fizzled my Kindle. I'm not going to lie, I'm a bit peeved that this story ended, unlike the others, without a HEA. This is part of a serial, and now the wait begins. This was a very well-written, beautiful story, and I can't wait to read the sequel. **I read this as a part of the Hot Alpha SEALs Military Romance Megaset**

Found the story lacking in character development. Very short story with double spacing -- obviously there are two other books that continue this story. All three books should have been included as one. I was disappointed as this could have been written with more excitement, character development, and a strong romantic undercurrent to hold the story together.

I really enjoyed this book, it was just simply too short!

5 stars! Such a sexy read!! I'm so happy I got the opportunity to read this book. I'm a big fan of P.T. Michelle and so far everything I've read by her I just end up loving! Mister Black was no exception. I enjoyed this book so much! It was such a sexy read and I can't wait for the next book! I can already tell that I will definitely enjoy Talia's character, though she makes some frustrating choices. She seems like a strong heroine, and I do love strong female characters. And don't even get me started on Sebastian! That is one very sexy man. Hell, he eludes sexiness. And I love his controlled and domineering personality. Yet, I can tell he is a very kind and sweet man. The chemistry between them is so very palpable, thick and heavy. I loved every second of it. It really seeped off the pages and even though they really barely know each other the chemistry, the attractiveness, between them is really brimming under the surface. And of course I loved every sexy scene between them! Especially how they reunite, that was so romantic and just so wonderful.  I am also very intrigued by who Sebastian and Talia are. I can't wait to learn more about them and watch them grow separate as well as together. I can't wait to see how their relationship will bloom, because I can tell it’s going to be one hell of a ride -- intense, sexy, and so enjoyable. I am quite intrigued about their pasts and I can't wait to learn more about them, because I can tell a lot has happened since the first time they met to now, eight years later.  Mister Black is busting with intense sexiness—and I loved that! This is going to be a series (I’ve actually never read a serial before) I’m going to have to read! I’m hooked! The pacing was wonderful, as was the buildup of the plot and story, and I was pulled in the moment I started it.  The book flowed so well, built at such a nice pace, and didn’t feel rushed at all; though it is a bit of a fast paced read. The characters really drew me in as well as their stories. And of course that sexual energy was right on! I thoroughly enjoyed the chemistry and carnal atmosphere. I highly recommend this one to New Adult readers, it's a fun, short, and sexy read! And it was quite addicting, in my opinion.

romance plus the suspense, great, wish it didn't have the cliff hanger

## JUST OK. I liked it but just barely. It wasn't really interesting enough for me to spend eight dollars (four per book) for the 2nd and 3rd books. I read the reviews for book 2+3 and didn't really like the way time jumps so much. The hero seems to come in and out of her life years apart. The other thing that bothered me was how arrogant the hero was... You'll be begging me for it; do as I say; you'll come when I say you can; and my favorite: you have no willpower when it comes to me. Bleh. If a guy said those things to me during our first time, I would've hightailed it out of there just to prove a point. Sorry, can't recommend. Apprx. 86 pages.

Nice short (80) read. Nice hot, partial read. Characters partially developed.

I liked the book. Good story but can all authors stop with the "Billionaire" everything already.

Disappointed!!!!!!! Too much like fifty shades!!! A virgin, sex with being tied up with a tie!!!!!! No real story!!!!!!

This had potential in all respects. Far too short at 91 pages to be considered a worthy novel of any depth. It's basically some adolescent sex fantasy with the potential to actually develop characters depth and descriptive plot. I wont bother with the rest of the series. Happy this book was free.

Not 154 pages as indicated on first page of book. It does warn about decision content so if that bothers you then don't read it. If I think about it as an 84 page free sample it doesn't about me as much as an incomplete novel does. Quit with the cliff hangers and write a complete book! That said, I am off to purchase the next one...?
