Editorial Reviews

cclap - Jason Pettus
I'm impressed with the amount of smoldering eroticism Hays surprisingly works into this book...
A great novel for all you NPR nerds to take a random chance on, if you're feeling burned out on your usual "miserable slackers" reading diet and feel like taking on something completely from left field, Cocoa Almond Darling quickly blew past my initial low expectations to become one of my more surprisingly great reads so far of this young year, and it comes recommended in that specific spirit.9/10
kathy reviews - Kathy Schneider
...I didn't put it down until I had finished it at three o'clock in the morning...
It is also the best story I have read about race issues in a long time. This story brings to light the differences between black and white, and what it is like when they fall in love. Even with racism not often an issue, this novel highlights the other issues that exist with this type of relationship.
The book is heartbreaking and wonderful and a must read for anyone interested in race-relationships. 4.5/5
suzy stewart dubot - Suzy Dubot
A captivating story that was told in an orginal style which made it all the more real. This is the second that I have read by this author which left me emotionally involved. 5/5
