    The book was a good read, with a story to tell. However, Jill's

    The book was a good read, with a story to tell. However, Jill's story dragged on way to long. Once she realized that Darren was not after her money, she should have come completely clean about who she was and why she waited so long to tell him. She was being, in my opinion, rather immature about this thing. I'm glad that she was forgiven and everything turned out the way she wanted. I am so ready to read Cleveland's story.

    This book is good

    What more can I say about this book. It was really good. I call myself reading some interracial books last week such as 'Once in a Blue Moon' by Darianne Cole. I hated everyone that I read. I thought they were going to worth my money, but it wasn't. I was mad after I read the books, but after I read 'The business of Love' it gave me some joy. I wish Jill would have told Darren earlier in the story about being CEO. I really didn't care too much for the plot of this story bring David in the story wasn't really worth anything. I like how she gave us a look into Shari and Malik story. Also, I like how she didn't make Jill stuck up in the book because she ahd money.
