Rating 4

Past vs. Future

Celeste Norfleet writes a story about an exciting family who goes to the limits to protect each other. However, love will put everyone to the test.

Joanna Butler has been given the task of ghostwriting a memoir for a powerful family. A family that goes the limits to keep their past where it is buried in the family’s home but what no one has realized was love had brought this story out so when Jacob Buchanan decides to let the story be told the family thought it was another one of his not so sane moments. That is when they send in their PR media specialist none other than Andre Buchanan the family front man. Andre will stop at nothing to protect his family but when everything he dishes out backfires on him and he finds himself opening up but not before everything, he has set in motion before his discovery returns and finds him with a decision of love or family.

Celeste takes us on an adventure of Alaska introducing us to things that make the reader want to go visit for their selves to see if it is actually there. I would love to hear more about the Buchanan family.

Heart’s Secret by Adrianne Byrd Rating 3

Heart’s Secret

Adrianne Byrd

Rating 3

Project Runway vs. Wall Street

When you start this novel, think Donald Trump but add a little chocolate and down the age some and then throw in Tyra Banks because in this story well Wall Street meets Top Model. Adrianne Byrd spins a story on the rich and famous dating services and how far families will go to keep a clean breed when it comes to expanding their families.

Jaxon Landon is tired of his grandparents nagging about him settling down so he decides to get them off of his back by devising the perfect plan of bringing a woman to them and presenting her as his finance but never once did he think that his plan could very well back fire in his face. He’s known to many as the Prince of Wall Street woman are dying to be with him and he can have his pick of woman by he can’t seem to get his grandparents to understand that so when he introduces Kitty a dancer from a night spot he favors he had never suspected that his grandmother had meddle. She has possibly with the help of her matchmaker granddaughter found his kinder soul. Zora Campbell had found herself alone yet successful but when her best friend who also doubles as a professional matchmaker comes to her asking for a favor Zora never knew that this favor could change her life and put her in a situation where happiness may very well cost her because of her little white lie that wasn’t really hers. Zora knew men wanted her because of her looks and what she had but she wanted a man who could meet her on her level and appreciate her for her so when she meets Jaxon at his grandparents anniversary she is struck by his beauty but upset with his fiancée. When she finds herself between two men who do not have a care for one another, she finds out how far everyone will go to get what they are destined for.

Adrianne Byrd has seemed to somehow or another brought woman’s fiction into romance over the past few books. I’ve recently seen I’ve found words that are almost never been mention in our black romances and at this point it makes me come to pick up a book with Adrianne Byrd’s name on it and look at it as a woman’s fiction instead of a romance. Truthfully, this book was good until you get to certain parts where you have to stop and wonder if you purchased an erotica or a Kimani Romance. While Mrs. Byrd has a great romance writing history, she is starting to lose me a reader of her romance novel. But overall the book was a great read without a few scenes that could have been without she touches on subjects that are real and in our world and she handles them with care and makes the story and stronger story.

Terrance is not willing to stop pursing her until he figures out why he has this desire to be with her.
