Zack pounces like the tiger he is, but Jazmin, a gorgeous woman and gifted artist, isn’t having it. And moreover, Zack’s best friend, Derek, forewarns Jazmine. But Zack is a man who’s used to getting what he wants and he goes after Jazmin with a vengeance. However, Jazmin, a strong Christian woman, holds firm. Doris sets up the chase beautifully, keeping you on the edge of your seat, wondering if Zack will win Jazmin’s heart. But this book is more than a chase story, it is written elegantly, it has depth and passion.
Unfortunately for Zack, he’s not able to shed his old ways and this leads to a devastating outcome on the surface, but in a surprising twist, Zack hits an emotional bottom and allows himself to get the help he desperately needs. The source of help is a huge surprise, and the final outcome will blow you away. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I want you to buy this book and experience the ride for yourself. It will change you forever. I thank the author for giving the world such an inspirational and heart lifting book. It shows true love off so good and it’s a great read for all, especially young women who want to wait for that special someone and for their wedding night. In one scene, Doris writes what should be an anthem to women everywhere who need to know their true value. It will move you to tears.
Bravo Mrs. Dancy!!!
I was totally satisfied when I thought the end of the book was Chapter 24....and another book was coming after that...but I loved this ending as well.
Having Summer come to the wedding was JUICY...and I loved it!!!
Mrs Doris, you have outdone yourself again, I can see the power of God working in your life!
God bless you and your family.
Charismatic, flirty and the life of the party, Zack is every woman’s desire. But dealing with him does not come without a host of consequences. His dysfunction touches the lives of everyone who dares to get close to him. Behind him is a long line of broken hearts, damaged souls and shattered pieces, but none of that affects him as he moves on to the next pretty face.
There is a saying that a woman cannot change a man, but there is a woman that every man meets who makes him want to change himself to become a better man. That woman for Zack is Jazmin Skylar Grant. A quiet, artsy, beautiful church girl who knows nothing of the life he is used to. With kindness, gentleness and total acceptance of who he is, she allows him into her world despite vehement warnings from others to stay away from him.
Between them is a love and a freedom neither has ever known. But the unfinished business and loose ends of his recent former life keep popping up and interfering with the love they are trying to build. Issues that are not dealt with don’t just go away, instead they spring up at the most inopportune times, hurting the one closest to him.
Jasmin has to decide if the love she has for him is enough to keep them together when his issues keep resurfacing threatening to tear them apart.
Doris H. Dancy has brilliantly written this story of love, loss, betrayal, brokenness, healing, forgiveness and growing up. Laced throughout this tender love story, is a depth that makes these characters leave the pages of the book and bury themselves inside the reader’s heart. Through her words, we feel every emotion they endure: their joys, triumphs, failures, heartbreak, and anguish. And we feel their love. Love is the strongest force that exists, yet it must be handled with great care to protect its fragility. She has masterfully shown love’s multi-dimensional nature and what happens when it is carelessly thrown away. This is a book I could read again and again.
