I have honestly been sitting on this for several days. I finished the book and was in awe. I seriously considered heading to New Orleans to find this man’s ancestors.
Beverly Jenkins did an amazing job on this story. She slayed all the words. ALL OF THEM!
I am embarrassed to say this is the first book by her that I have read.
Trust me, it won’t be the last.
The love story was not at all predictable. Drake and Val kept me on my toes the entire ride. The historical content didn’t bother me either. I tend not to like too much on the negative side of things that happened to African American’s in history (or the present to be honest). This was just the right amount of reality.
If you like sweet and spicy love stories then you should definitely check this one out.
Drake LeVeq most certainly earned the Sexual Chocolate Award.
Thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for my digital copy. I will be adding this paperback to my shelf ASAP!
