    A sweet little read

    I truly believe that some writers and musicians only have one really good book or album in them. Usher's Confessions was great, Raymond v. Raymond not so much. Sean Paul's Dutty Rock was enough to make me spend a year flying back and forth to Jamaica trying to capture the essence of which he sang. Everything he's put out since then is just meh. Do you see where I'm going with this? So I was worried when I received Sweet Little Lies. What if it wasn't as good as the author's first book, Heard It All Before? I shouldn't have spent a minute worrying because Sweet Little Lies is just as good, if not better. Christina Brinsley has created the perfect world for herself. She has the career, the house, the car and the fiance'. Scratch that. She HAD the fiance, her third fiance' to be exact. When he dropped a bomb on her just days before their wedding, her world went into a spin. A week later she finds herself on the plane to New York for work, seated next to the same delivery guy who was a witness to her melt down at home just days ago. In honoring the phrase, "there's more to him than meets the eye," the handsome delivery guy who witnessed Christina's breakup with her fiance' is really a grad student flying back to New York to finish school after a summer in the Bay area. Sure Christina Brinsley is hot, but Steven Williams can already tell that she's a high maintenance bougie chick that may be more trouble than she's worth. So is it destiny or a bad twist of fate that lands him on her flight? In between pursuing their careers, Christina and Steven burn up the pages with an intense game of cat and mouse that takes them from coast to coast and challenges them both to learn to trust again. What did you like about this book? Christina is such a real character. Like a lot of people she's so busy trying to control situations and second guessing everyone else that she stands in the way of her own happiness. I kept wanting to scream out, "Get out of your way!" And Steven? If a man as perfect as this exists, I can only hope that Michele Grant has patented him and started producing his clone in mass quantities. What didn't you like about this book? I hate the cover. The woman on it is pretty enough, but she's not at all what I imagine Christina would look like. What could the author do to improve this book? Keep writing. I'm appreciative of books that feature grown characters and Grant does an excellent job of bringing both the grown and sexy.

    New favorite author!

    Ms. Grant is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors. I love her writing style and the way I can actually hear the conversations between the characters in my head

    Do Your Thang Girlfriend Do Your Thang

    This book was fabulous from the "rooter to the tooter". I absolutely adored this story. Steven and Christina are both fantastic characters. They are the epitome of "I may not be perfect, but I'm perfect for you." The author wove the tale so that the reader gained a great understanding of who the characters were and how they became that way. I loved their journey and growth as individuals and a couple. Please buy this book. You'll love it and won't want it to end.

    Very enjoyable read

    Pheeew....what a book this was. I was hooked just a couple of pages in and it didn't let me go until the end. It took me longer to read because I had to savour it.I definitely wasn't ready to let the book and the characters go just yet! I love the way this author writes her characters because they are so realistic. She also does a good job of using them to make one self-reflect which always a good thing. Christina is the beautiful, amazing, and complicated woman who must decide to put aside her past fears, learn to finally trust again and entrust her heart to a guy like Steven. As for Steven, oh where do I start? He certainly has his flaws, but if there are men like him walking around, I sure hope the women who land them or are with them are worthy of such goodness.

    Buy it, Read it, Love it!

    I was lucky to get an advance copy of this excellent novel. I picked it up to read on my lunch break and could not put it down. I finished it that same night. Great story about recognizing what (and who) is real in your life before it's too late. Former delivery driver (turned professor) Steven is 8 years younger but so much smarter than Christina who has lost at the game of love more times than she cares to admit. This career focused girl is chasing the big story, Steven is chasing her. So when the lines between work and home blur dangerously, what happens to the relationship?

    Grant is a talented writer. She weaves sizzling chemistry, snappy dialogue and seamless plot movement into her work. Her style is contemporary with a nod to works of old. My favorite line, "Of all the classrooms in the world... she had to walk into mine." It's smart, funny, poignant and moves fast.
