In 12 Hours of Daylight: A Jason Jules Novella by Tameka Mullins, readers take a short peek into the life of Jason Jules, titular main character and porn star with a heart of gold. As someone who seems to have it all, at least in the erotic department, Jason still feels an absence in his heart after the loss of Vickie, the love of his life, who died after giving birth to twins. Aware that his job is very unconventional, he sees it as the most lucrative way to provide for his children, but as they grow he begins to wonder if that life is the only option for him. Until he meets Amira, a sexy brown woman with whom he can share his deepest thoughts and intimacies. She doesn't know of his night life and soon his two worlds will collide in a way he never thought possible.
I really enjoyed 12 Hours of Daylight: A Jason Jules Novella by Tameka Mullins. She gives readers a peek into the backstage of a job of which most only have a voyeuristic view. Jason could have been the typical alpha male that proliferates the genre. Instead, Mullins gives him a deeper, softer personality as we delve into his painful back story as well as his hopes and dreams for the future.
While I really enjoyed 12 Hours of Daylight by Tameka Mullins, it did feel less like a novella and more of a slice of life. There wasn't much of a traditional story arc and the dialog at time feels a little wooden. Still, I found myself drawn to Jason's story and thinking about him and his family long after the book was over. Tameka Mullins' 12 Hours of Daylight is a refreshing change to the genre and is sure to pique the interest of fans of hot and loving romance.

12 Hours offers readers a main character that we can relate to and empathize with in Jason Jules- a single father doing the best he can to get over heartbreak and raise his children the best way he knows how. Then to add an interesting twist to the plot, we learn that Jason is a porn star. Another fresh new element to this story was the fact that it was told from Jason's male POV. I loved seeing his side of things, and the reasons for his actions.
Now I am ready to learn more about Jason Jules and what becomes of him and his family. I'd also like to learn more about his love interest as well. I want to see all the layers of these characters to further get to know them, now that I'm invested in the story. I hope there's a sequel in the works!
If you are a reader who likes to go beyond the ordinary plot and story line and dive deeper into an unlikely steamy series of events from time to time, definitely check this book out. You will not be disappointed!

Yes, the erotica was sexy and stimulating but I loved the way he revealed his heart and love for his twins as he realized how destructive keeping secrets was becoming to his sense of self worth. Thanks for a great read!
