Book Description

It’s Thanksgiving, and single mom Ravon Taylor discovers the kitchen’s not the hottest room in the house when her son brings a friend home for the holiday. As soon as Douglas Jenkins, the young, handsome and hot graduate student, walks into her home he’s attracted to Ravon. Love is on the menu when her holiday houseguest makes a move on her, and leaves her breathless. Ravon wants to be with Douglas, but a part of her is worried about their age difference, and a secret she’s keeping could stand in the way of their happiness together.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Message But a Missed on the Romance January 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another short story that had the potential to be great. The message at the end was great and I did not see it coming. The author did a wonderful job keeping that hidden until the end. The love story itself was a miss for me. I did not feel any chemistry between Ravon and Douglas. In the opening of the book, I had the feeling Ravon was much older than what she was. Douglas came across as horny and got a good meal and satisfied before returning to school. I did like the message at the end of the book. It is never to late to learn.

Very weak and very predictable storyline. I am glad that it was free. Gibbs is a better write than this story would make you believe.

This was a nice short story of a mother finding love during the holidays. I liked it; but I wish that it could have been a little longer with more details.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Short Read November 4, 2012
By Lesley
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book based on a tweet from Black Book Releases. Before I ordered, it would have been nice to know it was a "very" short story.
I really want to give this short 4 stars out of 5. Because, I really did enjoy it. However, even with short stories there is a certain level of expectations that readers are expecting. Unfortunately, those expectations were not met. First, I couldn't see any of the characters, only Douglas. I gather he was truly "HOT". I would have love to have seen Evan, Ravan, and Barbara. Characters drive most stories, with a little more developement, background, mannerism, etc. This could have easily been 4 stars. Although it was a short story, there was plenty of word count available to develope the characters.
Overall, there was a plot/message and I got it.
