Overview

Tamara Holifield would never guess a little favor would change her entire world. When her best friend's husband Ty asks her to come out to visit to cheer up the homebound pregnant woman, she readily agrees. The only problem with Ty's plan is Tamara's lack of a car. Luckily for her, he has a solution, in the form of his best friend and lawyer, Russell Crichton.

Russell would have never thought doing a favor for Ty would alter his perception of beauty or disrupt his entire life, but it does. Tired of a job filled with money hungry thankless drones, Russell decides to ditch it all and follow his childhood dream, running his own ranch. Starting up a new venture is going to take time and focus and the last thing he needs is the distraction of his sexy carpooler.

Russell never believed he would be attracted to a plus size woman, nor did city slicker Tamara think she would ever have anything in common with a cowboy, but time spent together soon changes both their minds. If they can look past their obvious differences they might just find out that the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice.

    A MUST READ!!!

    I Love this book!!! Its different, one of the reason I like it because the author does not dwell on the race issue. Its about loving that person for who they are. I have read this book 3 times, believe me you will enjoy.

    A Wonderful Ride...

    The Blacker the Berry¿ is definitely a HIGHLY erotic, yet emotionally charged romantic treat. Tamara and Russell are a PERFECT combination and their antics throughout kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. The witty dialogue and sexually charged banter makes the story lively and at times LOL funny. There was NEVER a dull moment. Looking forward to reading more of Mrs. Matthews work.

    This was my very first interracial romance story that I read! It

    This was my very first interracial romance story that I read! Its probably been about two years now but I still go back to this story multiple times throughout the month hahaha! It's THAT GOOD. It's very steamy and hot! And not to mention super hilarious! I just absolutely love Tamara and "Rusty" together. This romance novel will always be my number one! And its totally not because I've had a thing for cowboys since I could remember.

    Just OK

    Short book, only about 114 pages. Cheesy jokes, reluctant main female character, and not enough spark between the characters. Too much money for too little book!

    Hard to get through

    It it wasn't for the fact that I was so far into this book, and was drawn in by the sex scenes I would have stopped. I don't like the heroine in this book. She's doubts and talks about herself. That fact that she is plus sized is a big factor in this book, but leaves a bitter taste in the readers mouth. Like a big girl can't get with a fine somebody?? huh? Don't get me wrong, that's kinda the point of the book, but she talks a lot about how he can't handle her and how she's the ish. The opposing characteristics within this heroine just didn't sit well with me. You can have both characteristics so long they are well written and developed.
