    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.




    This a short, but intriguing book. I liked it a lot. Dez Burke created a story that you can compare to the real life, but at the same time seeing from the point of view of someone else. Our main character, Kira goes throw a lot in her live. From suffering because of her history, from social problems because people are still racists, from social problems as well. Let’s just say, because Kira it’s a strong black independent women, life hasn't been easy for her. She has a boyfriend but something it’s kind of missing. 




    One day, at work, Kira sees her bosses son in a picture and she falls in love instantly. But what can she do? She has a boyfriend...But, after she meets face to face with Blake, the bosses son, there is nothing else they can do....instant love it’s a little thing to say. So, decide to separate from their current lovers to give a try. From there everything changes.




    I don’t want to give spoilers away. Just the read the book and you wont regret it. For me, this wont be the last time I will read a book written by Dez Burkes.

    Wow! Once again, Dez Burke has delivered a sizzling hot romance! Loved it! Probably tied as my favorite with her book "Gents 4 Ladies."

    I love this author but this is my not favorite.  I don't feel like the characters were really developed, it felt rushed.

    When Kira first lays eyes on a picture of her bosses son Blake she is instantly attracted but at the same time has a boyfriend and doesn't want the hassle of an inter-racial relationship. 




    Blake wants Kira from the moment he sees her across the room, even when he thinks she is his dads date. 




    Kira and Blake have a lot to overcome to get to the happy ever after at the end, will assumptions and misunderstandings ruin that chance?




    I liked the story this book had to tell, I loved the way that Blake and Kira overcome some pretty ingrained conditioning to make their love work. I thought that some parts of the story could have been filled out a bit more and found some of the imagery a bit wordy, however the story as a whole is good and it was a quick read. A lot is made in this book about the concerns of Kira about an interracial relationship and I loved that with Blake it was never even a thought that concerned him he fell for Kira not the color of her skin but the content of her soul. 




    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
