THere is very little to interest anyone in this book. Boring. Not worth the time it take to read it.

The characters in this book were so well developed. I truly enjoyed the development pyschologically and emotionally. Switching between his and her veiwpoints let me know how each one was growing and changing. While it was erotic ( and very well done), that wasn't the main point or focus. I loved the entire story. Yes, there were some unusual words used. It sort of seemed that helped me grow along with the main characters. The rest of the other reviews? Well, I disagree with them so much that I wonder if we were reading the same book.

The title makes no sense, the story seemed to be a first draft and it was inconsistent. It was not terrible but it is going into the archives. I didnt care for the sexuality of it or the constant talk of skin color. Skin color simply doesnt matter, it is all about who you are as a person.

I didnt like it. I had to use dictionary too many times that interrupted my flow, but i learned some new words. 2. The story line just didnt seem to pull me in too much narrirating alot was useless. It just didnt make sense to me. I get it he Adrian likes white women & they have a bond stronger than skin color but it coulve been some fireworks in the story, it was more like snappers.
