All I can say is, BRAVO! Kane hit it out the park with her first release. (Is this really her first novel?!) The story is told in first person from the POV of the heroine and the hero.
I loved everything about this book, so pardon me while I gush. I had the misfortune of starting it while on vacation, and I almost didn’t want to go on my sight-seeing tour so I could finish. It’s that good!
You’ll get to see Ebony and Brian’s relationship progress from the beginning, and I enjoyed taking the journey with them. Ebony, who’d never dated outside of her race before, and Brian, who’d dated black women before. He was persistent, and I like how he talked to her. For example, when they met in the club and Ebony suggested she wasn’t his type and he should consider a brunette at the bar, he laid this one on her: “If I wanted her, I wouldn’t be talking to you.” IKR
And he was such a good guy, showing her in many ways how he genuinely cared about her. He brought her to meet his family; he brought her to his jam session (the first woman he’d ever allowed to come).
And oh, the loves scenes! They were sensual, and I could feel the love between them. I almost felt like a voyeur, they were so well written and did a good job of depicting the depth of feelings between the two characters.
These two were perfect for each other. And as if I didn’t love Brian enough, when something really bad happened to Ebony, he handled it. He. Beat. His. Azz. Yesss! Nothing like a man defending his woman to push me over the edge into obsession. Lol.
I thought about Ebony and Brian after the book ended. I hope I get to see how they’re doing in future books in the series.
This was truly one of the best books I’ve read all year. If you don’t read it, you’re missing out! A++
