    I look forward to more novels by K. M. Thompson.

    'Me & Mrs. Jones' is a fresh voice in urban romance. Filled with attention-grabbing dialogue, descriptions, and characters, it traces the baffling search of Faith Jones, a young mother whose life has been risked through her jailed husband, for love and romance. Her care for her teenage son, Corey, is at odds with her attraction to her son's best friend, Darius. Her struggle to right herself in all ways after surviving a violent, drug-laced beginning is paralleled by her son's struggle to get through college and Darius' struggle to qualify for college by passing his MCAS. 'Me and Mrs. Jones' alternates viewpoints mostly between Darius and Faith, but instead of being confusing, this technique ends up enhancing the pace of the already action- packed narrative. It is a video-reminiscent technique, and very full of 'punch.' The erotic imagery and the drug use descriptions are gritty and solid. 'Me and Mrs. Jones' has subject matter that may not appeal to all readers, but once begun, readers will be unable to put it down. It is a novel about the struggle for stability in an urban setting, with genuine flashes of heroism. I look forward to more novels by K. M. Thompson.

    Isosceles triangle

    Suggestive of the times we're living in, it's not uncommon to find younger men (sometimes boys) with older women. In fact the trend has hit schools, the media, Hollywood and is now creeping into Boston. Faith Jones is estranged from her husband due to his incarceration. Just like every other woman, she is looking for a quality man with dreams and aspirations. Their son Corey is a genius waiting for his graduation to head off to Atlanta to attend Morehouse. Corey and Faith are more like best friends, playing video games, watching movies and talking noise. Though Faith tries to keep on him about his filthy mouth, weed habit and his daredevil tactics, she's still a supreme mom keeping him laced in the best gear. Darius Tate is more than a friend to Corey, they are like brothers. Darius and Corey have been down since grammar school. Already a father, Darius is still messing around with his sons' mom and trying to pass the MCAS and hopefully go off to someone's college. One sensual dance charges Darius and Faith into awkward positions, causing both to fantasize about the other. As the unlikely duo throw caution to the wind, they dive into the throes of passion. Are they careful enough to keep this romp anonymous? ME AND MRS. JONES starts leisurely and is a satisfactory enough read. Though honestly, I was expecting for once someone exploiting this title, to ROCKET readers with a very climatic explosion. Welcome to the literary game K.M. Thompson.

    BEST new novel out there

    I was given a chance to read the manuscript and fell in love with the book and the characters. Me and Mrs. Jones is an emotional rollercoaster ride that you won't want to end!
