About the Author

Tracy L. Darity is a resident of St. Petersburg, Florida. She is the author of the "He Loves Me He Loves Me Not!" and is currently at work on her third novel.

More About the Author

Tracy Darity resides in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is the mother of three daughters, Morgan, Jasmin, and Shaunte, whose names she used to create the title of her company, Teganjaz Books Presents.... Tracy formerly worked in the benefits industry as a Relationship Manager but dreamed of becoming a published author early in her teenage years.

As a child she had a creative imagination and a love for reading. In her early teens she began writing short stories as a hobby. It was not until she attended the 1997 Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, that she decided she wanted to fulfill her dream of becoming a novelist. The words of Tavis Smiley inspired her. During his speech at one of the forums she jotted down this message, "We all have a God given talent but if you don't have the desire to define, develop, and deliver your talent, you will always be in the audience and never on stage."

Tracy returned home from the festival energized and began penning her first novel. Although the manuscript was completed in late 1998, she became discouraged after receiving rejection letter after rejection letter from the publishing industry. She shelved her manuscript but every now and then she would pull it out and do minor rewrites. The desire to have her work published still simmered deep inside. In 2004 the flame inside of her reignited and she made the decision to pursue self-publishing. As time passed she began to feel discouraged again but refused to give up. She did research, talked with other self-published authors, and continued to believe that her dream would one day become a reality. Today she has three published titles, "He Loves Me He Loves Me Not!" and "Love...Like Snow In Florida On A Hot Summer Day," and "The Red Bear Society."

LOVE...LIKE SNOW IN FLORIDA ON A HOT SUMMER DAY by Tracy L. Darity is the story
of married couple LaDamien & Kim Bryson. Their story is one that many people can
relate too: a one-sided marriage. LaDamien Bryson is unhappily married. He
married his wife, Kim, for all the wrong reasons. While at a party one night, he
approaches a woman by the name of Mya. From there a whirlwind romance ensues. To
LaDamien's credit he is upfront with Mya on his marital status. Unfortunately,
LaDamien forgets the carnal rule of Affairs 101: "never fall in love with the
affair."

From the outside looking in, Kim is happily married to LaDamien. Little do her
friends know she is miserable. She is sick of LaDamien and his constant
cheating. She has stuck by LaDamien through the thick and thin and loved him
throughout all the mess that he has put her through. She is tired of his
disrespect for her and their family. When LaDamien's latest affair is brought to
the surface, she realizes that this affair is not like the rest. Too ashamed to
confide in her family or friends she turns to the one person she should not.

LOVE...LIKE SNOW IN FLORIDA ON A HOT SUMMER DAY by Tracy L. Darity is a love
triangle told from the point-of-view of each character-LaDamien, Kim and Mya. It
is a story of love, lust, lies and betrayal. There are two things to keep in
mind before entering into an affair: 1. "...remember the grass isn't greener
across the way, sometimes it's just the time of the day and the position of the
sun." 2. "God ain't gonna bless you with another woman's husband. Not today,
tomorrow, not ever.

Format: Paperback
Very married, LaDamien Bryson gallops around town with different women without any regard to word getting back to Kim, his wife. Unhappy, miserable and stuck in a loveless marriage, LaDamien resents Kim for staying and wishes she would finally get enough gumption to put them both out of their misery.

While Kim is far from happy, LaDamien is the love of her life. Sure she knows about the countless other women, but once the novelty wears off, he's back home being the loving husband and doting father that she knows he wants to be. It's not really his fault; those women should just find a man of their own!
Mya Blake has admired him from afar for years. He's become a familiar face, yet the two have never actually met. He's everything she desires. However, she is uncertain if he's ever even noticed her. Once the introduction is made, a flame ignites ensuring that this time, this is all together different.

LOVE... LIKE SNOW IN FLORIDA ON A HOT SUMMER DAY written by Tracy L. Darity was a sufficient read. At 394 pages you meet basically all of the key players, but the magnitude of some of the desperate situations never really seem to make themselves known. While it overflows with desperation and drama, the story quickly becomes repetitive, at the same time begging you to ponder WHY. Desperation bleeds from the pages. While it isn't my intention to be a spoiler, I feel like not enough pertinent information went into explaining exactly why characters were portrayed in such a way. I'm unsure exactly how the title fits into the story and the editing is tainted as you'll find "me" is used instead of "my" and "her" instead of "here." I did like the way the bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 is used as the page break.

Love...Like Snow In Florida On A Hot Summer Day introduces readers to the main characters of the story: LaDamien,Kim and Mya.LaDamien is very unhappily married to Kim and doesn't have a care in the world about his cheating ways.

Kim isn't all that happy with her marriage although she loves LaDamien.She knows about LaDamien's infidelity yet she continues to stick by him despite it.

Mya is approached by LaDamien even though he tells her he's married.Despite his marriage they continue to let the chips fall where they may.LaDamien and Mya fall for each other while Kim is left tired of the constant disrespect for her and her family.Will Kim finally wise up and leave LaDamien? Will Mya back down or will her and LaDamien continue to try and have a relationship they both so desperately want with no obstacles in the way?

For the most part,the story held my attention although at times, the story moved at a slow pace.I found the story to be very repetitive.I kept feeling as if I've just read what was already told.There were some things that I found a bit unrealistic but that would mean spoiling it for those that havent read it so I wont go into it.The book could have easily been a hundred pages less than what it was but for the most part I thought it was a fair read.

This book was provided by the author for review purposes.

Tracy L Darity has done it again. Love....Like Snow In Florida On A Hot Summer Day takes you on a journey of love, intrigue, and suspense. It gave me a chance to get lost in the story and become the characters. This is Tracy's second book and she has not failed to deliver. Her charcaters are believeable and you find yourself having all sorts of emotions for each one. This book had me on the edge of my seat. I was unable to put it down trying to get to the next chapter and ultimately the end to see how it all turned out. If you are looking for a book that has true life situations with characters that touch you from beginning to end then this is the novel you should read. I am a huge fan and can't wait for the next book that Tracy writes. She is proving to be an amazing writer and should be listed among the great authors on the bestsellers list. I recommend each one of Tracy's books and I guarantee they will not disappoint!

Keep up the fabulous work and you will be on that bestsellers list before you know it.

A True Fan and Supporter,

Tamela Gray
