    Awful

    I was so disappointed with this book. I felt at times while reading this book that I was reading a teenage book. Brandi was so immature when it comes to issues with Tim. I felt they had love for one another, but the author left a lot of details out of this story. Also, this book was starting to drag for me and I agree with the other reviewer comment about Eric and Brandi part in the story. Brandi seemed like she wanted to be with Eric and I felt like she was leading him on. This book could had been much better for me and as of now I will not read any of the author's books again. I told myself that I wasn't going to read anymore interracial novel and I will stop because I am so disappointed with them.

    A Taste of Temptation

    Brandi has a delicious dilemma she¿s in love with her professor, but she doesn¿t know it yet. Tim Jacobs has a prickly problem he¿s in love with one of his students, but he doesn¿t know it yet. On a fateful day at the beginning of the semester, these two previous one-night-stand strangers meet, Brandi as the brainy scholarship student, and Tim as the studly English professor. This book boasted a cute story and engaging characters. While I like the two main characters, I must admit, I would have liked to have seen more of them. In the absence of a complex story line, the characters seemed to fade a bit into the background. I found Brandi¿s character slightly uneven, but on greater reflection, probably as realistic as life gets. She was a woman of accomplishment and a steady head, although she tolerated bad behavior from an ex-boyfriend longer than I would have liked, and seemed satisfied with Tim¿s overly-developed mysterious past. Tim, vacillated between mentor and lover, and while it is a difficult transition, I found his excruciating attention to detail sometimes at odds with his sporadic bursts of anger. Although the romance was interracial, I found the author did not dwell on it to a great extent. I do think that some issues were brushed over, and if the intent was to show some of the hurdles of IR dating, then I think the author could do a little more research. If however, she was trying to show two people who genuinely enjoyed each other, then I think she was right on the money. Overall, I found the book an enjoyable read. Reviewed by: Angela T.
