Three years ago legendary rocker and aging bad boy Jett Black stunned the world when it came out that he’d hooked up with the enigmatic, ethereal singer Goldie. Announcing their love, a joint album and a joint record label they headed from the East Coast to share a home in California, together.
No one thought it would last this long, though as far as the world is concerned everything still appears to be a bed of roses for Jett and Goldie. They don’t see that while Jett is out dealing with the movers and shakers for the label he’s missing Goldie, nor do they see how desperately lonely Goldie is behind the gilded gates of their mansion.
Into the forming cracks of their relationship an eighteen year old arrives off the bus from Jett’s home state of Kansas with a chip on his shoulder and blood in his eyes. Cole Adams watched as his mother fought a losing battle against cancer only to be told at the end by his mom that Jett Black is his biological father, not the dad who raised him. His dad then turned his back on Cole for being gay. Dealing with Cole’s contempt and searing inner pain must take center stage over a rock star and a golden voice, at least for the moment.
Emotions run the gamut in this three way character driven story of love. Struggling to make the relationship work Jett finally has to grow and Goldie has to let things get messy in the follow up to Black Gold – Double Black. Cole is a wonderful catalyst to what the couple feels but isn’t saying to each other. Everything ends neatly sewn up for the characters, watching their journey is the best part. Double Black pokes at the dynamics of love and blasts out a winner.
