My only critique is that, once the romance picked up, which I didn't mind, I kind of missed the scenes about Sonja working on her business and going to class. How did the two of them negotiate dating while being instructor/student. I was especially curious about the fall out after they were discovered kissing by a student. I like to see female protagonists still have a fleshed out life outside of the romance.
While I gave it 4 stars, in reality it's more like 4.5 stars.
Overall, this is a solid non-cheesy romance novel. Harrison drops some nice gems that give me a sense of the city and the people in it without being heavy handed and piquing my interest. (Aside: I could definitely see Atlas' mom and the older gentleman having a relationship in the future). Lastly, as a Southern black woman, by birth, it was lovely to see the South and black people depicted this way. Love.
Do check it out.
The stunning cover of this book won me over. The fact that this was a book about people of color, an older woman who wants to open an apothecary and a young, successful man was icing on the cake.
I enjoyed the story of Sonja and Atlas getting to know each other, support each other’s dreams and navigate Sonja’s post divorce life. I did not enjoy the spelling and grammatical errors. Some sentences were hard to read because I wasn’t sure what the sentences meant.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed the story and hope we get other books about the sisters!
Sonja is recently divorced, has two teens, and thinking of starting her own business. Atlas is the instructor of the entrepreneur class she takes. The chemistry between them is instant and there are continuous sparks across the page. I adore these two together. I love how they grow individually and together. It's not just heat, they talk, they tease, they support.
Sonja has to figure out what she wants going forward, for her life, for her kids, for herself. That push-pull of a mom whose identity has been completely tied up in her husband and kids, that's real, with or without the divorce. It's really well done.
Then there's Atlas, who has his own baggage to contend with. There is less detail here but it's enough. He basically needs to decide, is it time to grow up and be responsible or not. His friend and business partner, Kairo, is the friend who helps you listen to your conscious and calls you on your shit. I love her. And she helps Atlas get there (and in turn, maybe figure out her own issues, too).
I love the Malone women component, Sonja's mom, sisters, and daughter. Those ties are real and it's great to see strong women on the page and their bonds. Family can be messy and complicated, but hopefully family is also the people you rely and depend and turn to, and that's what we have. I am interested in all the stories to come about Sonja's sisters.
Other side characters and friends add the right amount to make this a fully realized world and story.
And did I mention it's HOT?
I loved it, highly recommend. Every word of this book hit exactly the right spot.
way of life to change in spite of the divorce. She wanted to start her own business, enter the sexy Atlas to the rescue. There were some obstacles and insecurities they had to overcome, but love always find a way. There were a few grammatical errors but it didn't take away from the story. I've already purchased the next story .
I loved this second chance at love book. When you come out of a relationship and doubt yourself it's hard to move on. Atlas showed Sonja that was beautiful and desirable and that made her give him a chance. Atlas and Sonja had great chemistry and the love showed. This was my first book by this author and it didnt disappoint. I cant wait for the book at Birdie!!!
