***Romantic Times Top Pick***
Forever Afterby Bette Ford
Charles Randol, Vice President of Randol
Tormented by dark family secrets, lies and deception, the beautiful Diane Rivers had to struggle to make a life for herself. Though a successful career in teaching finally awarded her the long-fought-for independence she craved, it came at a price...a future with the man she loved the most, Charles Alexander Randol, III.
Charles Randol, Vice President of Randol Pharmaceuticals is shocked when he discovers that Diane's promiscuous reputation is utterly false...Diane is a virgin. When Diane finally gathers up the nerve to share her true feelings with Charles, he immediately whisks her away to the island of St. Thomas for a private wedding, luxurious honeymoon and the intended happily ever after...
But when they return to the States, Charles' whole world is rocked when he learns that Diane's virginity isn't the only secret she's kept from him. Faced with his wife's traumatic past, Charles finds himself torn between his deep love for her and the bitter betrayal he feels at being kept in the dark on her dangerous past...and Charles desperately hopes the love in his heart is tough enough to save his marriage...and to save his wife.

I loved the characters Charles and Diane. Charles, attractive, intelligent and wealthy. Diane, beautiful, intelligent, and success story in itself. So many of our African American little girls born into single homes are victims of their mother's lack of self. Here Diane against all odds rises above her pass and gets the love of her life.
At 262 pages, this book has so little character development, suspense and tension that I found myself skipping over pages about half way through the book. The romantic leading man was emontional stunted and irrationally jealous. The female lead was emotional unavailable and weak. They had no chemistry and by the end ofthe book I didn't care about either of them! There just wasn't enough of a "story" in this book.
