I Do Love You Still is a great read. Sometimes when a story is told through alternating viewpoints, it can be somewhat confusing. However, the author handles this very well, and it is no problem to follow the story as told by Memphis, Tina-Love and Xena. I found myself getting a bit irritated with Xena for some of her actions, but no complaints here. I love to be invested in a story, and you will definitely find yourself taking sides in this one. That heart wants what the heart wants, and each of the main characters wants something different out of a relationship. Although there are a multitude of twists and turns found in this story, Morrison leads you through them easily enough. You will enjoy this read to the very end. Note: Some explicit sexual content is included. Many thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. #IDoLoveYouStill #NetGalley
I Do Love You Still is complicated multicultural fiction from Mary B. Morrison. Ms. Morrison is an author I’m familiar with, so I expected, and got, intense drama. Men’s clothing designer, Xena Trinity, is still in love with her ex, Memphis Brown, even though she’s in a new relationship. She’s on the brink of realizing her greatest desire, to show at New York Men’s Fashion Week, and wants to be sure she’s with the man best suited for helping her reach her personal and career goals. Xena is an eclectic melting pot, and her life is just as complicated as her genetic makeup. Memphis Brown is working hard to achieve his goal of qualifying for the Olympics in track and field. Six-feet-two-inches of blackberry skin with lean muscles, he’s a fine male specimen and knows it. He wants his ex, Xena Trinity, badly but can’t resist the appeal of his sexy blonde hair, blue-eyed new friend. He’s trying to juggle his complicated relationships and maintain his sanity while living by his mother’s daily inspirational mantra, “Stay ready”. Tina-Love Jones is Xena’s promiscuous best friend and Memphis’ #1 fan. She’s a multimillionaire supermodel who travels the world and controls men through sex. Tina-Love’s relationships with Xena and Memphis are becoming more complicated than she wants to deal with. She loves them both and will do anything she can to reconnect the two star-crossed lovers. I Do Love You Still is way beyond good. The story is told through the alternating viewpoints of Xena, Memphis and Tina-Love. Multiple viewpoints can get confusing, but the author handles this easily with appropriate chapter headers and vivid dialogue. Morrison’s characters are vibrant and interesting. The story is set in Savannah, GA and bits of the city’s historic sites and history are injected throughout the novel. I compliment the author for weaving a wonderfully complex plot without leaving the reader totally lost. The plot twists stole my breath. The ending still has my jaw dropped. I rate this novel 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it readers who enjoy multicultural fiction. The explicit sexual content may be offensive to some readers. My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
