Blending of cultures can be difficult and the last thing one would expect is family adding turmoil.
Mahad Basari is a man who knows what he wants and that is to reside in America despite how his father feels. He’s never been one to follow tradition to appease others, which is how he’s able to fall head over heels for Sadia, a young, feisty, African American woman. Instead of hiding the truth from his father regarding the woman who has captured his heart, he braces for the onslaught which left him holding the telephone with no dial tone.
Sadia is hosting a book signing when she feels someone’s eyes piercing her back; turning around, she’s staring at the man who will sweep her off her feet. From their introduction, Sadia is fully aware of Mahad’s intentions where she’s concerned. And that’s making Sadia Lemont his woman!
Readers, you will fall in love with Mahad’s character; he’s direct, assertive and flirtatious. The chemistry between the two had Sadia’s father amused, especially when he noticed crumbs on her lips. I thought Cyrus, Sadia’s father, was going to offer him a glass of water to drown the heat penetrating.
Mahad and Sadia both have a parent who refuses to entertain the thought of their child dating outside their race, until Mahad introduced himself to Sadia’s mom which left her breathless. Unfortunately the odds are stacked against Mahad; he will be disowned by his father if he enters into a relationship with an American woman.
This was a great story; too short for my liking only because I want to know more: what happened between Mahad and his father and will there be a proposal. I truly hope this is the first novel in a new series.
Love’s Culture is a must read, especially if you have never read an Angelia Vernon Menchan novel.
