M.J. Kane

Best Price $4.76 on Kindle

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take "no" for an answer—to accept the challenge. 

When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust. 

“This was one of the best books I've read in a while. The author had the ability to draw me in from the very first page. The focus on race was a bit much for my liking however, I think for this particular book it actually was necessary. Brian was... perfect. He was persistent, kind, sexy, and just so lovable. I love how accepting his family was of his and Ebony's relationship. I understood where Ebony was coming from and somehow, I also understood her insecurities. Her sense of independence and not wanting to rely on anyone was very real and the consequences of it was real also. What happened in the book definitely had me in tears and not because of what happended in my own personal life but because, the rawness and the pain were so believable. I liked Yasmine and I even like Kaitlyn. The author didn't put too many secondary people in the book that would have made my focus go everywhere except on the main characters instead, the secondary characters added some humor and even some depth to the story. When I finished I was smiling, so happy that their love was so strong to endure what happened. The story was cute, romantic, sexy, humorous, sad and most of all... I can't stop saying how real it was. When I finished, I said exactly what my subject line says... 'Wow'. Can't wait for Yasmine's story. ”

“This book is everything I would've hoped for and more! To get the technical stuff out of the way, this book was an easy read, excellently formatted, perfectly edited and the storyline and characters were very well developed. Based on that alone I couldn't rate this book anything less than 5 stars! But let's get to the good stuff. I didn't quite know what to expect because as love stories go you sometimes feel, you read one, you've read them all. Absolutely not the case with this book! I am in love with the characters and Brian would make any woman want to date outside their race. Whew! The spice and the essence of true love in the way the author brought this story to life made me feel as though I was sitting in the movie theater with a big bucket of popcorn watching my favorite love story unfold. It drew me in personally and the raised great societal questions as well as answered them. I was emotional in good and bad ways and I appreciated the attention to every detail. Truly the author left nothing to chance and didn't forget different elements as the story went along. It's been a long time since I have enjoyed a book outside of a thriller or street lit genre (which obviously leaves you on the edge of your seat) to this extent. I literally could not put this book down and I wanted to keep reading and reading about Brian and Ebony. Excellent, excellent job! ”

“This book was amazing and beautifully written. I love that it was an interracial book that actually dealt with the emotions and thoughts of people in such a relationship. The love between Brian and Ebony was so realistic and fun and honest that it kept me smiling. Then there was that twist that twisted my heart. Again the thoughts, actions, and reactions were so real that I could honestly feel the characters' pain. The ending was quite dramatic and I couldn't have been happier with the way the story unfolded. Thank you so very much for writing such a wonderful story.”
