The Business of Loveby Cheris Hodges
Jill Atkinson has it all: a successful business, good friends and the respect of the Atlanta corporate community. But when the lights go down at night, all she has is loneliness. Jill hasn't allowed a man to get close to her since her last relationship ended in betrayal. As the New Year dawns, Jill arrives home to find a fire ripping through her high rise. Grabbing her laptop and racing down the stairs, she runs right into the arms of firefighter Darren Alexander. Darren has had his fill of lying women. His ex-wife lied about her fidelity, but in spite of his distrust of women there is something about Jill that appeals to him. Jill wants to love Darren, but her past stands between them. When the truth comes out, she may lose everything they have built together.

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.
Wonderful!! Ms hodges is becoming one of my favorite authors
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.
