Social justice blogger Regina Kent
She is usually cautious and savvy. Yet, unable to resist her attraction to the handsome Simon, she plunges into a torrid affair, knowing that she chances angering big brother and her less tolerant followers, many of whom will not accept that one of their most popular pro-Black bloggers is dating an Asian man.
Simon and Regina fall deeper in love. Making sure that things stay between them becomes progressively impossible, and neither knows how much longer they can keep Marcus in the dark and the world at bay.
What Reviewers Are Saying
”I loved this AMBW Drama. It's definitely a page turner - At midnight I found myself saying ‘just one more page... just one more...’ The author did an excellent jobs of depitcing multiple sides of the interracial romance dilemma by giving the reader a taste of: the judgement that black women receive for dating outside their race; the judgement that Asian men receive for dating outside their race; His parent's views, biases, and thought process; and also views from her side of the aisle; and the flack that AMBW couples get on the street. The conversations are deep and detailed. And the couple actions and reactions are real and heartfelt.” Book Lover, Amazon, 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
”This is an amazing story that has enough merit to be a real-life experience. The characters are relatable and realistic. The storyline flows well and the drama keeps you on the edge of your seat!” Yakita X, Amazon, 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
”I loved how the relationship between the two characters, despite their instant attraction, still moved rather slowly from that point. Both of them were reluctant to get in an actual relationship, and they each had their own reasons, which made a lot of sense for me. The cultural clash between Regina and Simon’s cultures was also very interesting and added additional challenges for their relationship.” Majanka, Amazon, 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
”I picked this read because I am a fan of AMBW romance stories. However, this book is so much more it is not the cookie-cutter book boy meets girl,a small bump in the road then happily ever after the end! Lyndell Williams has picked up the mantal that the late Toni Morrison dropped. This story shows the true life twist & turns of interracial love between two very successful people with past baggage that they bring in this relationship. While they attempt to love while not only fighting the hate from society saying their love is wrong but from those they love the most family. Reading this great book is like getting caught in an ocean's riptide. You think you have swam out after you finished reading it but it pulls you back. It causes you to look at yourself and see how truly open-minded and bigot free are you really?” Ms. Sista D., Amazon, 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What Reviewers Are Saying
”Oh, my gosh! I was so drawn with this story that there were some times I wanted to throw my ereader at television.” Rena, , Amazon, 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
”Relatively few romance titles that have come my way involve multiple racially diverse characters. It had not occurred to me how difficult it must be to write this with clarity, so I am very impressed with this author. This is the second book in a series, and, while it does stand alone, I recommend you read the first book first. In this book, the primary characters are Marcus and Toni, and the underlying theme is their strong, constant love for each other even during difficult times. I highly recommend this book.” Carole Lake, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
”I jumped into Book 2 and now I have to go back to Book 1. These characters are real. Their love is real. Their emotions are real. I had to put the book down at a couple of points because the struggles they navigate in their marriage were so truly written, I felt I was intruding on them. But then I had to pick the book back up again because I could not stop reading. I had to know what happened. The romance is deep and compelling, the steam is hot, and Marcus and Toni's love will hold you long after you finish reading it.” lls, Amazon, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
