BLACKOUTeBook (1) (1)


There is a gaping hole in the middle of Lonna’s memories of the worst night of her life. Her body told her how it ended, but the details leading up to her lying hurt and sobbing on the bathroom floor have been lost.

How do you move forward when you’re not sure what you have to move on from?

How do you get your life back on track when you don’t know what happened to send it off the rails?

She makes a connection in the unlikeliest of places. Their bond is immediate—their pain similar and, at the same time, vastly different. As they work independently to recover from invisible wounds they are not ready to share with each other, they find their path to healing may leave a fiery trail across the landscape of what used to be their lives.

Gavin let out a small laugh and kissed the tip of my nose. “That’s also possible. Come on, we better get going.”

“Do we have to?”

“Nope. We can leave right now.”

This time, it was my turn to laugh. “You’re not helping my instinct to flee at all.”

“Let’s go,” Gavin sighed. “Krista will be mad, and we wouldn’t want that. Plus, if we leave now, we won’t get to hear Ashley speak again. Now, that would be a shame.”

“Well, well, well, look at you bringing out the snark. This is new. I like it.” Every day, it seemed like I was discovering a new part, another hidden piece about Gavin, and each one pulled me in a little deeper.

“I like you,” he whispered, tugging on the bill of my hat. “Let’s go.”

With my hand wrapped in his, I let him lead me through the crowd, my heart fluttering with those feelings you got with a first crush. I wished things were as uncomplicated now as they had been then.

“Things are never just black and white, there’s always a gray area.” -Blackout

Blackout by Olivia Evans is a riveting and tragically beautiful story about finding hope though darkness. This story packs a whirlwind of emotion on every page immersing the readers into the life of Lonna on her journey to remember.

While her life is in a tailspin, consumed by the events from graduation night, she soon finds herself in a support group for victims of sexual assault. It’s in this support group that she meets Gavin, a young and handsome man with his own story to tell.

As always, Olivia continues to amaze me with her storytelling. Her writing is so good and her idea so vivid that’s it hard not to become completely consumed in her stories.

This story is gripping. It’s emotional and deep. The subject matter is at times difficult and should be taken into consider if you are sensitive to triggers. Olivia handles the subject matter with respect and tact.

This story is about more than just tragic event. It’s about healing. It’s about growing. It’s about living even through the darkest storms.



Olivia Evans is a writing obsessed, world traveling, thrill seeking, music junkie.  A true Gemini, she follows her heart blindly and lives life to the fullest. Wife. Mother. Oscar Wilde lover. ~To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
