Fans of Gone with the Wind will appreciate this updated telling
Fans of Gone with the Wind will appreciate this updated telling of Rhett and Scarlett's story, not set in the deep South, but on the streets of Boston and the surrounding area. Roxanne Monet is a woman with a whole lot of problems: she's lost her job, she's broke, her ex-mother-in-law is convinced she's a murderer, and the one thing she is truly passionate about, her volunteer fundraising work for a children's hospital, is in jeopardy. Barry Dennis is a superstar basketball player for the Celtics who can think about only one thing: being the absolute best at what he does. There's no room in his life for anyone else, and that includes his daughter, Lindy. Roxanne and Barry's game of seduction will leave you frustrated and angry at times, yet begging for more. If you want cookie-cutter, quasi-perfect heroines, and noble heroes who do the right thing, this is not your book. Like Rhett and Scarlett, Barry and Roxy are flawed characters with real, serious obstacles to overcome on their personal journeys before they can be together in a meaningful way. The book is all the better because of this. The scenes at the Children's Hospital will move you to tears, I promise. There are twists and turns to keep you guessing right up until the end how these two can possibly resolve their personal problems and the conflict between them, and you'll be so relieved when they do! I can't recommend this book highly enough.
