Publisher's Summary

Mila Ali's fiance Warren is killed in a corporate plane crash. Grief wraps around her heart and soul - cushioning her to the outside world and the reality that is now her life. Warren had been many things to her: friend, lover, and even a part-time savior. After spending too many years working too many hours for a large corporation, Mila was able to let go and love Warren, even at the expense of losing her traditional Somalian father's favor.

Nothing could have prepared her for such a devastating loss, yet the fragile bubble she has built around her heart is shattered when Mila comes face to face with Blake Baldwin - billionaire, womanizer, Warren's boss...and the owner of that fateful airplane.

Blake Baldwin is too handsome for words, with a body that could melt hearts and a piercing stare that cut through Mila's every defense. The encounter seems to ignite a fascination in the enigmatic billionaire, one that sends him to the beautiful Somalian's door again and again....

Mila is not looking for love - been there, done that, but Blake will not rest until Mila Ali is his. He thrusts her into a frenzy of confusion, deception, and passion. Blake just may be the bandage Mila's wounded heart and neglected body needs, or he could be the biggest heartbreak of all.

Contains mature themes.

Morals say No but Romance Called

He is in an unfaithful relationship. Having asked for and not been given a divorce he proceeds to date. She felt a pull to him as well although she fought it. Her fiance died and she felt the comfort of another would help. Her final realization is shocking. The twists that surround her fiance's death is the source of moren investigation from her new love interest. As all of this goes on the family disfunction that exists with her father who disowned her for not accepting an arranged marriage, judgement from the sister that does, and drama from her sister in an unconventional relationship provide all the drama you will need.

Had some issues but still enjoyed

This is my second book by this author. She’s a good writer, sometimes she throws hurdles that make it difficult to love every character.

I liked that the heroine was East African and dark skinned because there isn’t a lot of color or ethnicity diversity with black women in romance.

I just didn’t connect to the hero(he slept with many outside of the heroine which made their intimate times less special, had even slept with her sister at one point) sometimes there was slut shamey language I didn’t love, and whether it was intentional or not, very cishet anti-lesbian/ff rhetoric(probably wasn’t aware her comments were such).

I liked it but not enough to give it a five.

Too much sexual profanity.

It's ok, but I'm not fond of too much sex and not enough storyline. I winched a lot at the language.

IT KEPT GETTING BETTER!!!!

A new favorite. As this book reveals itself you discover your first impression is not quite what you think. Love the dynamics of "Blake" and when I almost hated him I fell hard for his character. You will love the ride😃.
