Kiss the Reaper
The Reviews!

5 stars - I suggest and highly recommend you read Blak Rayne’s new inspiring book
By Michael T Jordan on June 12, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
If anyone wants a fast paced read that will keep you involved with the plot, the imagery and language so much you cannot put the book down until you read the last word, I suggest and highly recommend you read Blak Rayne’s new inspiring book, Kiss the Reaper. If you have ever lived under the dark side of life or have tendencies that way, like I did when I was young, you don’t want to miss out on Z’s infatuation with Brody. The author takes you on a rollercoaster ride of distinct imagery action so real to life you will think you know these characters personally. The author intertwines the dignity of life, no matter how deplorable a person lives, with the acceptance of death or murder for people deserving of that end. I felt a kinship for Z as the main character written from first person perspective. You will be swallowed emotionally in his love for Brody, the cold, aloof, dark character. Together from different worlds ruled by gangs and the government their relationship evolves into a passionate romance that will restore your faith in mankind. I would give this story a higher rating than 5-Stars if there were a higher value. But I will give Kiss the Reaper a solid 5-Stars, enthusiastically.

This was an exciting and well-written book. The pacing, tension and twists made it a fast read with me dying to know what was going to happen next! It's the first in a series and I look forward to the next book. Murder and mayhem! The things I love in a book :)

5 stars - Dark Hope
By T. Meerschaert on June 7, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
I was gifted a copy of this story in return for an honest review. The story is well-crafted and kept me engaged. I could not put it down until I finished the whole thing. It's a dark story of a young male prostitute who has a client like no other, and he eventually finds out why. I would recommend this book to lovers of dark erotica and M/M erotica. While the story is dark, there is an air of hope to it also. It was my first encounter with Blak Rayne, and sure not to be my last!

5 stars... I have to say thus far this book is fantastic. It's a good read and if you really...

5 stars - You Won't Breathe Until the End ~ It is THAT Gripping

I have long been an avid fan of Blak Rayne. Her work is unbelievably phenomenal and always draws us into the world between her artful pages, submerging us in carefully selected words crafting a world none of us could even imagine. And yet she can. In Kiss the Reaper, she has written a very dark yet hopeful world of retribution, redemption, love and hope. How the Hell are all those contrasts even possible in one piece?! I don't know; you'd have to ask her. But, she does it and like an artist with a bare canvas, oils and brushes, she transforms her images into fast-paced words that are so moving, they latch onto us by our fears and curiosity and don't let go until the last page is turned and we sigh...wanting more..
The story is compelling, gripping, dark...and yet not, The words are strung together like jewels: carefully, artistically, one enhancing the other and in need of the other’s brilliance. Her way with words is, I don’t really know…magical? I saw everything she described and felt the tension, the relief, the resignation, the determination—the love and hope--the pain. I felt the rain pelting, felt the concrete sidewalk rise up to meet the face of a falling Z, I heard the approaching footsteps while my own terror mounted. Brody's calm determination was a frozen wave that washed over me. I didn't breathe for 5 chapters so I couldn't put it down. I had to find out how it ended so I could breathe again.
If you don't read this book, you will do yourself a tantalizing disservice on this emotional roller coaster that is her imagination. This book will bring you to the core of the dark side of human nature. But, there is promise in retribution; there is hope in redemption. In short? I friggin' loved this book and cannot wait for the next one. 5 stars plus!

5 stars - Dark and Deep
By Jordan Stringfellow on May 22, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
This dark, suspenseful crossover defies single genre classifications. The multi-talented Blak Rayne brings us a novel with the emotional depth of a romance, yet the relationship between Z and Brody surpasses everything remotely expected of the romance genre. Grasping for relief and an escape from a life he can no longer endure, Z becomes enthralled by the dark and intelligent, albeit mysterious Brody.
It is Brody's mysterious quality that draws Z into a world he never imagined - even darker than his own. Filled with tension, thrills, twists, and smart dialogue, Rayne has made me a fan for life. Initially drawn by the cover, I was pleasantly surprised to find the story even more exciting. I could not put this one down for wanting to find out what would happen next - what Z would find, what Brody would do to him for infiltrating his world, encroaching on his dangerous secrets.

If you enjoy a mix of thrills, suspense, mystery, and a deep, yet unusual relationships, you will love "Kiss The Reaper." Exceptionally well-written with well-developed, multi-dimensional characters, this is a dark tale you won't want to miss. Five stars.

New release now available at Amazon!
As a prostitute, Z has no one trustworthy he can rely on in his life until he meets Brody, a kind and mysterious man who seems to be the answer to all his problems.

Kiss the Reaper
By Blak Rayne

‘Wherever depravity knocks, he will answer. Whenever Z knocks, he will kill.’

For Z, prostitution is a way of life, but it’s also become his prison. Desperate to forget his ugly existence, even if it’s only once a week, he confides in a john—a mysterious but kind man named Brody. Every Friday night they talk until the early morning hours. Brody is altruistic, giving him the attention he craves and, in time, they cultivate a unique bond.
For Brody, he’s found something special in Z—an innate charm and pure view of the world—qualities he can appreciate. He’s grown fond of Z and comfortable with their routine, but he knows it will soon come to an end.
Fueled by curiosity, Z follows Brody through the city to a dance club. He wants to learn all he can about his unusual client. However, he discovers more than he bargained for—a dark unsettling secret is hidden in a back room, a secret he can never share.

The elevator slid shut at the far end of the hallway and I caught a glimpse of Brody inside. I raced past it and down three levels of a concrete stairwell to catch him. Once on the street, he walked like he had a purpose, cutting straight through anyone in his path. I followed him for several blocks, where he entered an abandoned warehouse in an industrial park. I kept close to the walls and shadows, careful not to disturb anything.
On the fifth floor, in what had once been a spacious office, sat the basics in furniture—a liquor cabinet and kitchenette, bathroom, and a bed—it wasn’t how I expected him to live. A meticulous man, he seemed the type who would rent a West End condo.
Brody began to remove his clothes, and I ducked behind a rusted filing cabinet. He wasn’t huge or burly, but lean, an unbreakable man, and I felt an even stronger attraction to him. In certain respects we were one in the same—a pair of freakish oddballs—mutually needy. I wanted his attention and it seemed he wanted my approval. But what about love? And what about sex?
His cock was long and lean like him, his nakedness beautiful. My stomach fluttered and I bottled my breath, quickly looking away to stay calm. He deserved privacy and my respect. But my thoughts were far from respectful.
Water ran, and I waited, rubbing nervously at my sweaty upper lip. The bathroom door opened, and Brody emerged in a cloud of steam, waist wrapped in a towel. In minutes, he was dressed and adjusting his tie in front of the large window. Then he slid the holsters over his shoulders, buckled the chest strap, and put on his blazer.
Once again, he was on the move, myself in pursuit. But somehow within a block of the warehouse, his trail had gone cold.
“Shit,” I gasped, my breath misting in the air. Light from a neon sign nearby glistened on the damp pavement. No other business in the immediate area was open. I had a hunch and pulled on the blackened entrance door.
Loud music hit like a brick, rattling my chest. People drank, danced and made out—the club was a den of wickedness. And I soon became disoriented in the chaos, temporarily absorbed like water into a sponge by the hypnotic pulse of lights. I shoved against the suffocating mass of bodies and scanned the sea of bobbing heads. At the rear of the club, I noticed a hallway emitting a red glow and, for some inexplicable reason, I felt drawn to it and moved in that direction.
When I reached it, a man brushed past, bumping my arm. The unnatural light obscured his head and shoulders. I paused and glanced back, but he’d vanished. Our interaction was so brief, only his stature had registered. There were three doors to my left and the middle one stood partly open. I gave it a cautious push and it crept inwards. The red glow from the corridor gradually spread across the floor.
I gagged.
In the center of the room was a dead man, seated on a chair in front of a boarded window, his mouth gaping, a quarter-sized hole in his forehead. He stared with vacant eyes, those deprived of a soul. Blood trickled past the bridge of his nose and had spattered the plywood in the window, like someone had flicked paint from his or her fingertips.
For the first few seconds, I was too traumatized to be scared, but had enough sense to get out of there. Murder was still illegal. Turning on my heels, I blew from the room, heart hammering. I tried to act normal, but failed, wading at an urgent pace across the dance floor, propelling people out of my way. A yard ahead was the silhouette of a tall figure, a man engulfed in the epileptic beat of strobe lights. I don’t know why, but the back of his head and shoulders, and his sturdy purposeful gait seemed all too familiar. He had to be the man who’d passed me minutes before.
He exited the building and I did the same, dashing outside into the drizzly night. Gulping at the cold air, I looked in every direction. The street was desolate, not a human in sight—the man had, yet again, vanished into thin air. I turned east for home, an alley sandwiched between the club and neighboring building, and someone materialized from the shadows.
“W-who are you?” I demanded, limbs shaking.
