Hello Reader! Tessa Belladonna is out this week, so I get the opportunity to show off and recommend the first African-American romance I ever read! Theresa Hodge is a prolific author with quite a few serials under her belt and I have to say, I am glad I got a start with her!
This contemporary African-American romance will take you on a whirlwind of emotions and surprises. The brisk narrative will keep you on your toes and the cliff-hanger end will make you want to read the next one. While the editing needed some work, the story was engaging and the characters were sympathetic. This is a second-chance romance that made me want to throw it at the wall for the ending. But if you like fast-pace second chance romance, this one is a must-read!
It took twelve long years for Alyssa Darden to come home. A place she promised to never revisit again. The loss of a dear friend sent her back to a place of old hurts that she must confront before she can truly live again.
Drake Peterson knows he was the cause of so much pain to the only woman he ever truly loved. He wants to set things right and he’s not going to lose the one opportunity to prove that a love like theirs will never die.
Alyssa has moved on with her life. She has a man who loves her, a career and friends in a new city that she calls home. She must fight Drake’s charismatic sway to try again…to open up her heart to the possibility of loving him again.
Will fate drive two hearts to open up to love again? Can past hurts and betrayal be healed through loving again? Or, will forgiveness open the door to second chances?
