Like brother Felix, Mark is intelligent, powerful, respected in the field of finance and handsome. While Felix has settled into domestic bliss with his wife, Ebony, Mark is still single...and bored. The bachelor life is losing its appeal to Mark. He doesn't do long term relationships, and is quite upfront about it with any woman he gets involved with, and he can have any woman he wants...until he met Faith Brown.
Faith is intelligent, independent, aggressive and at the top of her game in the finance field. Her last relationship left her cold, which is fine with her. It leaves her totally free to concentrate on her career without any distractions.
Mark Essien becomes a distraction Faith cannot ignore. After much back and forth, they began a clandestine affair...played by Faith's rules. They cannot go out together in public, they cannot tell anyone they're seeing each other, and they cannot, under any circumstances discuss business when they're together. Mark is not happy with these rules, but he agrees because he's truly drawn to Faith and wants to spend time with her.
Every one of those rules come back to haunt the two lovers and lay waste to their relationship. I understood WHY Faith felt the need to have rules, but felt she was too inflexible, and it actually made it hard to empathize with her...or even like her. I liked Mark. Not once did he seem insincere or have a hidden agenda. Even when "the deal" went down, I didn't blame him. Faith COULD have known about it...had it not been for her rules. Her end run to prevent the deal from going through was more than commendable - she is a very smart woman - but, I can't help but feel it could have been avoided too if she had allowed her relationship with Mark to be more open.
It was good to see family and friends from "Keeping Secrets". Also glad to see some sort of peace between Faith and her father, but would have liked more of a confrontation between the two. It just seems that in the end, he got what he wanted...sorta...and with money. *LOL*
Kris Petersen rears his evil head again, determined to outwit the Essiens. Mark masterfully dismisses him - loved it! Why has no one decked this fool yet? I feel as though he'll slither his was into another story. And Wumi - lawd...her! Talk about a maneater! She should have been put in her place LONG ago, and she had no right to be upset with Faith over Mark. Bye, Wumi!
Mark made this a satisfying story for me because while he's definitely an alpha male, he actually was a nice guy simply falling in love with a woman who didn't have a good excuse to NOT love him back! They both carried way too much baggage from their childhoods. It was said baggage that powered their beliefs about marriage and family, and led to their differing beliefs on how to handle possible parenthood. Mark "seemed" to be past the bad part of his growing up and had a good relationship with Chief Essien. Sadly, it wasn't the same for Faith. It was almost painful watching Faith's interaction with her father...or lack of. I couldn't believe his wife's health wasn't even enough motivation to leave the past in the past. But when Faith was at her lowest, Mark dropped everything and flew to her side. More than once. They make a good couple.
Not to be outdone, at times, Africa nearly steals the story. The author's detailed descriptions of places, attire, ceremonies, and even food plants the reader firmly on the continent. I have to visit Africa.
Looking forward to book 3 and Tony's story (and did I hear something about Kola getting a story?) - and already dreading the end of this story, even though I know the author has something else in store for us. I like the Essiens and think EVERYONE should have a book...even the parents! LOL! Enjoy!
Kudos to Kiru Taye!
