Jasmyn - bold, high-strung, brassy, wreckless, witty, shady, charming and foolishly careless. Kyle - Christian minded, weak-minded, gentleman, star student from a good socio-economic home and an all-around nice fellow. The two meet on the college campus of Marshall in Pennsylvania. Jasmyn spies Kyle on campus and radars on making him her man. Put the two together and the combination is downright disgraceful. Kyle, not too stable in being able to stick to his first mind impression, succumbs to Jasmyn's lusts and the rest is 'shameless'. When did Jasmyn's over zealous need for men begin... at the sudden tragic death of her father? Or girlfriend was just happy to be care-free in college knowing she had backup - cousins that would break a few arms and legs if she needed it done??? Maybe it was the thought of others knowing her mother was a mental basket case and big brother is on lock-down...whatever the case Jasmyn went 'buck' wild when it came to men...girlfriend was off the meter! Why was Kyle such a 'patsy'...was it daddy's image at home? An over baring moms? Just a bookworm and no common sense? Why didn't he just pursue Tianna instead of punking for the most part? The story is written in 1st person in the voices of Jasmyn and Kyle, with Jasmyn telling her side of the story first. It begins with Jasmyn in a confidential session with an HIV/AIDS victim. We have 2 yr. old, Jayda, also the mercy of this disease. Jayda's mom, Tianna is the childhood love of Kyle, engaged to be married. Tianna and Jasmyn are committed together in a manner you wouldn't suspect. The reader never finds out the culprit behind the sad demise of Jasmyn. Religion and Christian principles are tapped on, revealing the need for a stronger commitment to ones' self and God. The novel is well written and suggested for an eye opener to the beast of HIV/AIDS. This is one book that has a 'believable' story to share. Goodpeoples ARC BOOK CLUB Inc.
