Let me begin with saying I love Carl Weber and respect him as a/an author. That being said I was disappointed with this novel. The idea of the plot put me in mind of the t.v. show "The Bachelor" The disappointment came because there were too many "loose ends" that weren't tied up, and a lot cliche' concepts. Perhaps I missed it, but what ever happened between Savanna and her father? Why didn't anything happen to Lisa Mae and Loretta for what they did to Marlene? Why didn't Deacon Black be held accountable for what he tried to do to Monique? It was almost as if he became tired of writing and was ready to wrap it up. The story had potential to be so much more than what it was. I did however laugh my a** off about Lisa Mae. She was out of control in so many ways. This has not turned me off so to speak from the rest of his writings, but I was disappointed.
I haven't read the book yet, but the fact that the preview for the book was her dedication page, is not a good sign.
The plot sounded interesting so I went ahead and purchased the book, but it kinda irritates me that the preview wasn't of the novel. I mean that's the WHOLE point right? I hope she's not trying to hide some of the narrators shortcomings by doing that, because that's just not right.
So we'll see, I'll be sure to give others a detailed review (without giving away the story of course) of the book just as soon as I've finished. (SMH)
I can always tell when I've truly enjoyed a novel because I'm heartbroken when it's concluded. I've become accustomed to Beverly Jenkins style of writing and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this new twist. This story added a mystery to solve in the mist of all of the lusty dialog. I believe I've fallen in love with Ryder myself :)
Her description of him was so precise I could see his chiseled features as well as his intense eyes. For a character as complicated as Ryder, possessing his heart also meant to possess his pain. Leah was an endearing enough character to pull it off.
The antagonists in this story were plenty and the shocking revelations did not disappoint. I recommend this novel. Good job Beverly. Keep it up!
I enjoyed this very much. A beautiful story about being steadfast in your love for another person. Acceptance, compassion and understanding, are all imperative elements for unconditional love. Not to mention one of the main characters; Porter had me laughing out loud. His logic really appealed to "my type" of humor. Good read... :)
You know, I can appreciate a good series, but for the story to just end abruptly like that makes me feel like I got jipped. I mean when you read the description for the story, you're waiting on Camille to snap, hell I feel she has more than enough reason. And if her sister was gonna snap, it should've been on that crazy ass man she was seeing. I'm disappointed and I wish I could refund this. Not happy with this book. Not happy at all...
All I can say is "wow" I'm more than sure that EJD bested Zane in this one (**fanning myself)
Eric Jerome Dickey is just as sexy as he can be lol. Well I enjoyed this book in totality. What touched me the most was how (and I'll try not to give anything away) both main characters had to revert back to child hood. It was so sweet. I never realize how much I enjoy one of his novels until I have time to reflect afterward. Great Read...I recommend this book...
