“Black culture is not my culture, Mr. Vega,” I shared with him. “My family is from Trinidad. That is very different from black culture. We’re black but not black Americans.”
I am at exactly this point in the book and will not be reading this book any further. I actually won't be buying any more books from this author. I thought this might be my new replacement author for Theodora Taylor buy I was wrong. People live be to make money off of Black Americans but are quick to point out th differences between us and other cultures in any offensive way that they feel like spewing out. If Black culture is not the heroines culture then I don't want to read about her nor do I want to read books from the author. There is enough nonsense in the real world, it was incredibly unnecessary to add this tone deaf, self hating, offending line in a HEA romance novel. Written like other Black people are better than Black Americans. Gross.
As for what I read up until that statement, I had total misgivings about what I was reading. Faith is a naive woman dealing with a complex matter. She is getting emotionally sucked into a manipulative vortex that she can't see her way out of. Mr. Vega is coming across as a predator taking advantage of the situation. It's weird. Plus his mood swings and anger going so far to insult Black Americans (who by the way are probably your primary source of readers) was extremely uncouth. Makes me question what type of person the author is? Doesn't matter now this author isn't on my do not buy list. I will keep my Black American dollars.
I’m married to a man that is black, he looks anything but at times and has been confused for Arabic and Hispanic. He goes with it and doesn’t make snarky comments like this.
Some IR writers irk me because they can write with a level of self hate and that is shameful. I have read this author before but there the diss of black American’s wasn’t cool. The reality is your black skin is always seen first by most people, even other cultures with black skin.
That black skin is fine when diversity is needed and helps them with - getting a job, getting accepted into schools as an exchange student, and more. It’s also cool to have black skin when celebrating black music, black style, black language and more.
So this was a no for me. I love or differences but this book wasn’t for me. The female may have been black in color and had a different culture than black Americans but the manner in which it was written was offensive to me.
Mr. Vega is a simply beautifully told story with well developed storyline and characters.
What I didn't know at the time was that their were characters making surprise appearances from her previous works of which I had not read yet.
Yes, in my opinion Mr. Vega is one of the best IR books that I have had the pleasure of reading. A perfect mixed of tragedy, light comedy and romance- I repeat I'll be reading it again and again.
Having read Trent, Duncan, Carter and Declan, I was always familiar with Xyla Turner, but didn't pay attention to the previous books she released like I should have-my mistake. A mistake easily rectified because all have been purchased now💚
I was pleased when Faith stood up for her independence and personal growth but used this to bring value to her relationship with both Logan and Casey. They eventually became a wonderful tribe.
Good story; most enjoyable.
