About the Author
Like any good Southern belle, Kianna Alexander wears many hats: loving wife, doting mama, advice-dispensing sister, and gabbing girlfriend. She's a voracious reader, an amateur seamstress and occasional painter in oils. Chocolate, American history, sweet tea, and Idris Elba are a few of her favorite things. A native of the TarHeel state, Kianna still lives there with her husband, two kids, and a collection of well-loved vintage 80's Barbie dolls.

She broke up with Rashad because she thought he was withholding secrets from her. She’s entirely right but she’s made to feel as if she’s the one with problems because she doesn’t trust him. Well, one person does come forward to point out Rashad is indeed being secretive so he comes clean—far too late, of course.
In spite of her distrust of him, when Rashad turns up out of the blue, Lina gives in to him far too quickly to suit me. Do they talk out their problems? Does she press him again to come clean to her? Nope. She just loses her composure around his tight, hard body and over his skillful hands and tongue.
Thankfully, they don’t have sex on their very first date after their reunion. But Rashad isn’t above using his sensuous skills to manipulate her. It seems sexy in one way but borderline coercive in another. I’m sure if the tables were turned he wouldn’t appreciate her using her buttocks, breasts or mouth to make him late for work.
When Rashad’s secret is finally revealed, I rather wondered what all the fuss was. It doesn’t seem that cataclysmic or criminal to me (and certainly isn’t as bad as being a drug dealer, thief or a fence). So while the sex is scorching enough, the story and so-called contention (all this over a piano?) make for a bland storyline.
