Review: Black and Green by C.L. Stone

Sang Sorenson’s father abandoned her and her sister, leaving them to fend for themselves for months. He’s returned, and finds Sang is missing. He demands she return. Right now.

Will he call the police if she doesn’t?

Her Academy team doesn’t want to risk losing her ghost status and she doesn’t want to put them in danger, so she reluctantly returns home, but is comforted that she will still be monitored by them.

But the second she opens the door, she discovers her father has made changes that will affect her entire future. His decisions will make them a normal family.

Normal is no longer what Sang wants. It would kill her Academy career before it ever started. Not to mention it would end the special, new, and still-fragile relationships with the guys.

Sang struggles with her family, her identity, and where she truly belongs. Now that the entire team knows about their romantic relationships with her, tensions are mounting, tearing the team apart from the inside.

Only, Dr. Green isn’t going to lie down and roll over by playing by the rules. Not anymore. Not while Sang is at risk.

His heart can’t take leaving her in that house one more minute. He needs her. They all do.

Song For This Book: Could I Be Your Girl by Jan Arden
Why? All the love songs for Sang!

4.5/5

This review may contain spoilers from the previous books, but will not contain spoilers for Black and Green.

It seems liked we’ve been waiting a hundred and one years for this book, even though I know it hasn’t quite been that long. But it was still so exciting to dive back into this series and see what’s been going on with the crew while they’ve been gone.

At this book of the series, these books stress me out to no end. After everything that has happened, I just want Sang and all the guys to be happy and together. And that would be a boring book, I’ll admit, but it would be nice, wouldn’t it? However, the drama in this book was fun, and I really enjoyed it.

The Good Points of Black and Green:

I loved that it was also told from Dr. Green’s perspective. We’ve only really gotten to see Sang so far in these books, so it was great to have some other opinions and thoughts. And based on the Academy report we saw at the end, it looks like this might be a common thing moving forward.

I loved the change of drama in this book. While I still really want to see what’s going on at the school and with Volto and all that, this was a fresh, new situation, which was super fun to read about.

The ending of this book was so good. I won’t say too much about it, but the ending was so good, and I loved how they resolved the issue.

I really enjoyed how they’re all starting to deal with their relationship and the way the issues come up and get handled. It’s a complex, complicated thing they’re trying to do, and I love that it’s not being played off as this easy, fun little thing they’re doing. It makes it so much better to read about.

The Downsides of Black and Green:

While the editing is getting better as we go, I still want more of it. Some stuff still reads funny, and while there aren’t as many obvious mistakes as in previous books, it could still use more editing work than it gets.

While I liked a lot of the relationship drama in this book, I felt that the characters didn’t grow as much in this book, despite everything that had happened, compared to the previous books in the series. It was just the same thing the whole way through.

All in all, I did really enjoy this book, and I’m still in love with this series. I can’t wait until the next book comes out, whenever that happens to be. I’d love for this series to wrap up before I’m an old woman reading about teenagers, but at the same time, I want it to go on forever so I can stay addicted. If you love unique romance books, secret societies and hot guys, you should definitely check out this series.
