She did it again
I love Elise she pulls you from the first page, got hooked on Emmy in Blackwood series and I just couldn't put it down. I plan to re-read Blackwood again. All I can say is I have never been disappointed with any of her books and I highly recommend. 👁👁
Your past is just that...
and it should not define, dictate or deter you from a destined future. Gideon and Roxy did exactly that with a little prod from Emmy & Sofia! Do you think it’s like a rollercoaster ride in Elise’s ”Marvelous Mind”, for her to have the ability to expound on and create new characters! Well, whatever it is...keep it up, and if you haven’t read her books do it!!
A rich, well developed plot, plenty of vivid and captivating characters and a lot of fun!

The language is elaborate, the wording carefully chosen to complement each scene, consistently adding touches of subtle humour and resulting in a pleasant and very entertaining style
Most characters from the extended Blackwood security team populate the story, giving life to a chorus of diverse and intriguing personalities, each of them binging their own unique touches to the narration.
Platinum focuses on the story of Gideon and Roxy, two returning characters.
Even if he’s not a member of Blackwood Security, Gideon’s profile is similar to the ones of many other members. Coming from a wealthy family, he was hit by tragedy in the past, finally finding his call in becoming a member of the Secret Services. On the other hand, Roxy has had a very tough childhood, as well as terrible circumstances in more recent times. Her strength, resiliency and unique mindset make her a captivating and engaging character.
Together with Emmy, Sofia, and the other women in the Blackwood family, they make an unstoppable and irresistible team.
Obviously, Emmy plays a key role in the whole story, always her dangerous, witty, mouthy, big hearted self, culminating in a spectacular finale that is not to be missed.
Overall, Platinum is simply a great book. The richness of the story, uniqueness of the writing style, and the lively and captivating characters make it easy to read, and impossible to put down, leaving the reader longing for many more instalments of the Blackwood Security stories
