*Review* NIGHT SHIFTS BLACK by Alyson Santos

by Alyson Santos


His name is Luke. But nobody knows that. He was an iconic musician before he gave up music. But nobody knows that either. They also don’t know he’s twenty-seven, that he used to have an infectious laugh, and that he’s way too young to be widowed. They certainly don’t know the rest of his tragic story. All they know is that he comes into their café at the same time every morning and stares at the same chair at the same table. They know he’s strange. They know he interrupts their breakfast with a cold blast of air as he hovers in the doorway, mustering the courage to confront a piece of furniture. 

No one asks why. No one cares. He’s fine with that. He’s done with life. This isn’t even his story anymore. It’s actually Callie’s, the young writer who sat in his chair one day.


This book! I LOVED IT! I am seriously in love with this author and her writing! My bestie recommended this book to me, and I am super glad she did. The writing is outstanding, with well-developed characters that I absolutely adore! Callie, Luke, and Casey have found a place in my heart and I’m never letting them go. They’re charming, they’re passionate, and they’re oh so wonderful.

This book has all of those wonderful FEELS that I need & love! Filled with humor, love, & heart-break, this story had me laughing, smiling, and crying while gripping my Kindle tightly. 

Night Shifts Black is a story that contains very sensitive subject matter – and the author writes about it with style & grace. Definitely emotional – positively captivating. This will definitely be one of my top reads of 2016. I cannot wait to read more from this author!

5 Hearts!



I’m a writer, musician, and cat lover. I’m also an alternative music junkie. Seriously, totally addicted. 

I write what needs to come out, whether it’s pain, tears, or laughter. I write people and relationships, about the beauty and horror of what we do to ourselves and each other. I write Love. Vengeance. Compassion. Cruelty. Trust. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Darkness, and the incredible way humans destroy and heal each other.

I like to eradicate barriers, refusing to be confined by the laws of physics or limitations of reality. I will befriend a vast population of possibilities and introduce them in ways that might surprise you.
