Overview

When Denise Rich shares her evidence book with John Archer, she makes her first in a long series of mis- takes that might lead to the destruction of her carefully created life. She doesn't want confusion or a relation- ship or her silly high school crush on John. All of those things are too complicated for a second year law stu- dent just trying to live a successful life free of the pain love brings. John isn't looking to fall in love, either. He's already got the girlfriend he's supposed to have and everybody wants him to have – everybody but him- self, that is. Both of them are living unfulfilled lives glossed over with a veneer of fake smiles and forced happiness. But once they realize they can no longer deny their attraction to each other, the smiles and hap- piness become sincere. Until John's vengeful now ex- girlfriend starts her campaign to ruin Denise's life.

I read this book in one sitting. I'm mad at myself because this was supposed to be a lunch break read, alas, it was not meant to be. I got into this story and fell in love with the chemistry between Denise and John, in the beginning. Their love was simple enough but outside forces were destined to tear them apart. Her "friends" weren't friends at all, in my opinion. I was annoyed with how easily she let her friends influences her in certain situations. I would have given Astoria the boot a long time ago. One thing I didn't like was the extreme measures some of the people took to break them up. I felt like that part was unrealistic. I had to ask myself "were they living in Virginia in 1862??" It just seemed like the faculty didn't care about the bigotry and hatred running amuck on campus. I'm in an interracial relationship myself and have never encountered anything close to that, and I live in Bumfuk, Arkansas. Anyway, I did very much enjoy this book and couldn't put it down until I got to the end.

I just finished this book and I found it to be amazing. I loved the storyline and character development. Also, the ending was not the typical cookie cutter ending some romance novels have. I found the book to be completely believable and would recommend it to anyone. I am the kind fo person that reads a lot, and this one definetly gets a high ranking in comparison to other romances I have read in the past.

It's just an OKAY read...the characters main and secondary are quite COLORFUL...and even though the storyline is REALISTIC...and the author gives some INTERESTING and probably EXTREMELY real insight into the world of interracial dating/relationships...both John and Denise come off as TOO NEEDY, wishy-washy and whiny throughout...and I couldn't for the life of me see how they could build a LASTING relationship with all the DRAMA constantly surrounding them...the few moments when John and Denise are in "sync" with one another the romance is definitely SWEET...but there's just too much NEGATIVITY from the couple, his family, their friends, and of course all their "enemies"...however, that being said, Ms. Green still keeps me turning the pages just to discover what would become of John and Denise's journey to love.

This book is written in the first person. You would think the that the author would make a likable narrator. She doesn't. Denise is supposed to be a twenty something law student who is at the top of her class. She actually comes off as an immature, insecrure, weak personality who gets run over my the situation and the people in her life. John, the love interest is not that great either. There is so much focus on the black white issue that the relationship gets lots in the fray. What left is weak story with no character growth. The reader is left uninvested, not really caring if these people make it in the end...

THANK GOD its a super slow day @ work! Started this book al little before 4 am and just finished it while at work (its the Friday before Easter and the place is like a GHOST TOWN!)... This is the most realistic portrayal of how SOME folks feel about, react and conduct themselves when it comes to interracial relationships (THANK GOD alot of folks have moved beyond race when it comes to relationships!). Loved the interaction between John and Denise. Stori and Suse were interesting and funny... The only this I DIDN'T like was that the ending left me wanting to know more about the couple. (I pray desperately that the author will write a sequel - its calling for it!)...

I really enjoyed this book because it opened my eyes to the way most people where I live at view interracial relationships. Even though I am attracted to white men, after reading this book I have a very different outlook on how it would actually work if one pursued me. All in all, a good, quick read. Very sweet and endearing!
