Our Review

 “You are not a black rainbow. I see every one of your colors.”

Suits meets How to Get Away with Murder!  Yes please! You know that feeling when sometimes you just need a book to entertain you. You need fiction; not real life. You need to be swept up in a story that can be classed as an easy read. We love easy reads; it’s a positive term in our vocabulary. An easy read picks you up and sweeps you away into….fiction.

Black Rainbow was certainly entertaining as it had a little bit of everything. It was sexy, intriguing, thrilling and drama filled at times. We do love the writing style of JJ McAvoy and her heroes are incredibly arrogant, lovable and bloody hot and passionate. Levi…we’d wear him on our legs in a heartbeat…sigh….he stole our hearts as he commanded every scene he was in – the cocky arsehole. As for Thea, well she’s another strong level headed heroine who knows what she wants and seeks to get it no matter the obstacles. She was a lovable heroine, no questionable doubt! Theirs was a match made in the court room and we completely believed in their relationship.

“Good things come too rarely for either of us to question it.”

We’ve definitely noticed a trend in JJ McAvoy’s writing; no matter how arrogant and bad-arse her heroes are they are the ones who show the more vulnerable and loving side. Whereas her heroines are the ones that come across harder and more reluctant to love and show love in return. In some respects it’s almost an emotional role reversal. We’re not quite sure that we love that aspect of her heroines all that much as they come across almost cold and emotionless. Whilst we did end up loving Thea it’s harder to connect to this kind of heroine, in our opinion. On the flip side though, in some respects it’s quite refreshing for the hero to have this endearing vulnerability whilst being such a dominating figure.

‘This could be my first loss, I thought bitterly to myself, as I watched her walk away.’

Black Rainbow was quite a powerful story and we revelled in the court room dramatics and the fierceness of our characters. Even the secondary characters had such presence. Our only few niggles were a couple of inconsistencies and conveniences which was a real shame as this story could have been utterly brilliant. So many twists and turns; heightened emotions and the sensuality and raw emotional aspects of some scenes made this read more and more un-put-down-able as it went on.

As for Levi Black; we LOVE him – LUSH doesn’t even cover it! We felt a certain sense of satisfaction upon reaching the end and would definitely recommend this standalone novel from JJ McAvoy.

‘There are people who are moved by the world, and then there were people who moved the world. Levi Black was the latter of the two.’

*We read an ARC of Black Rainbow curtesy of Netgalley. We have to assume that this is a pre-edited copy as there were a high number of spelling and grammatical errors.*


A sweet and steamy New Adult Romance from Amazon bestselling author of the Ruthless People series, J.J. McAvoy…

After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he’s also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.

With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus.

But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best—and that’s Levi Black.

But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?
