From New York Times best-selling author Cassia Leo comes an epic love story about rewriting destiny.
Over the course of five years, Mikki and Crush cross paths on three separate occasions. Their first encounter changes Mikki's life forever, but their second meeting leaves them both buried beneath the emotional wreckage of a violent attack. Mikki is left with more questions and grief than she can handle, while Crush is forced to forget the girl who saved his life.
Now 19 years old, Mikki Gladstone has decided she's tired of the mind-numbing meds. She books a flight to Los Angeles to end her life far away from her loving, though often distant, family.
Twenty-one-year-old Crush has always channeled his blackest thoughts into his music, but he's never had great aspirations. He decides to fly to Los Angeles to record a demo of the only song he's never performed in public; a song he wrote for a girl he doesn't even know: Black Box. He has no expectations of fame, and he's never felt like his life had any purpose...until he meets Mikki in Terminal B.
When Mikki and Crush cross paths for the third time in Terminal B, neither has any idea who the other person is; until they slowly piece together their history and realize that fate has more in store for them than just another love story.

Loved this story! Black Box has suspense, romance, danger, excitement, love & trust in it.
Black Box is about a young girl who was brutally raped and left for dead and then rescued by the man she will marry years down the road. Their paths keep crossing yet they never knew it. Read along with Mikki and Crush as their worlds collide and they both find a reason to go on.
This is my first read by author Cassia Leo. Cassia did a great job on this story. The plot got my attention and held it thru the entire book. The plane crash was super exciting - I was on the edge of my seat! The narrators, Jeffrey Kafer and Christa Lewis did a superb job delivering this story flawlessly! With all their multiple voices and accents, I found this book very believable and entertaining! Good job all!
True to life
Cassia Leo writes stories about REAL real life. They are not your typical boy meets girl and they fall in love stories. They are not your typical HEA's. They will break you down, tear your heart apart, and eventually if you are lucky they will mend it all back together better than new but be prepared because Cassia breaks all the rules and tells it like it is. She does not write for the faint of heart. She write for readers who know loss, who have been broken and need to know that there are others out there that understand their issues, real issues, from real life not the standard book stuff but the stuff that really reaches in to the deep recesses of your heart where the shadows lie. If you are ready to feel then don't miss out on this amazing love story!!!
I had previously only heard one trilogy work by this author but enjoyed that story so much that I wanted to hear more. Did not realize what this story dealt with until into it. Despite the difficulty in continuing to listen I was glad I persevered because I was so touched at the author's gentle telling of this story. I appreciated, because of personal experience, the profound beauty that came through in this touching love story proving to me that I want to read more from this gifted author.
Oh! My! God! Black Box is so unbelievably good! I absolutely love love love this book! This has to be one of my favorite reads of 2015 if not ever!! These characters... Their stories..... You have to read it!!!! 💞
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
I almost DNF this one, because I was so confused that I was like uhh.. okay, but once I reached the airplane scene it was smooth sailing. It was a very depressing book, I can tell you that but..... it ended with a happy ending.
Two broken lost souls reunite not after 2 but the 3rd time fate brought them together. This book reminded me a little of Final Destination where both were skipping there ultimate ending. Except this time around two young adults learn what death could really mean.
Mikki and Crush meet again, after a plane delay leaving them together not by choice but by destiny, both seek each other's trust, and discover that even thou death was there ultimate goal, love defeated their odds. Both Mikki and Crush had two things in common- death and the black box. I'm still confused little about the Black Box, but over all it ended well.
Narrators in this story were great, they made you feel like Mikki and Crush's world were going to end, done in duel narration.
