Allegro changes that in a big way. So much so that I am willing, finally, to put my name to a review for a book from a genre that, in the main, seems bent on including as much gratuitous sex as posible on every page and makes you think that's the only reason or way people of different races would ever connect.
Allegro is a mature, well-written book about two mature, well-to-do professionals. Their differences in color and culture don't keep them from recognizing their attraction to each other nor from exploring that attraction. Surrounding characters are also well drawn and lend meaningful support to illuminating the background and personalities of the two main characters and to the overall storyline. Challenges of interracial relationships and less than positive attitudes about them are realistically woven into the story without detracting from the romantic tone set by the author or throwing the characters into over-extended bouts of doubt. Even the issues of reverse racism, equity, and affirmative action are handled well in the framework of the story arc.
The author handles the couple's love life with a deft hand - the maturity of the writing and character development leave room for neither tawdry euphemisms that leave you wondering what's happening nor, on the other hand, long drawn out explicit sex scenes that add little to nothing to the story.
I think this one moves to the very top of my favorites list as being the hands down all-around winner. (Others have elements I've liked but missed the mark in coming up with a balanced package.) I'm hopeful I'll come upon another IR book of the caliber of Allegro very soon.
The book describes very well the world of Advertising Agencies and the challenges successful women encounter in their personal and professional lives.
Being myself a European having lived in the US, I found it very interesting the cross-culture situations, certainly the author knows very well Italy.
I really hope we can enjoy soon a second book from Adora Bennett.
Yes, this is a Prince Charming, but Jada is a woman of substance before Luca!
