Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was quite pleasantly surprised at the emotional connection in addition to the hot sexual tension in Ms. White's first book, Pearls of Passion. In Pearls of Wisdom, she honestly actually made me cry! The story, told in young Billy's point of view, is amazingly steamy, shockingly real (at least to me) in how a virgin male might think and feel and even more moving and emotionally tender than the first story. Billy is determined to at least propose to his dream love of three years on the eve of shipping off to war. What happens is not only a very erotic sexual journey for Billy, but also a tremendous emotional awakening, truly taking him that final step into adulthood. At this point, even if Ms. White's next book is her grocery list - I'm buying it, no questions asked.
