A love story. It follows the simple format. Woman meets man, they fight their attraction, have some rough patches, then get together. I <3 Francis Ray. If I can't get the fairytale in real life might as well get it in a book.

Ms. Ray sure knows how to build a plot. The entire time I was reading I was dying to know what the big secret was. This book was realistic in it's emotions. The impossible situation and the journey from anger to love was heart wrenching for both Madison and me. I must be honest... I don't know if I could have done it. The ease in which this story is told created the perfect flow and made it very hard for me to put down. I only removed one star because the end seemed a bit rushed. People went out ...more

To the outsider looking in, Madison and Wes Reed appear to be the perfect couple. They are what most deem as a match made in heaven. They are successful and appear to be living the good life. However, these two are far from what people think they are. Behind closed doors they are sleeping in separate bedrooms, rarely speak to each other. Madison and Wes suffered a terrible lost losing their only child. This lost has driven the couple in different directions. Madison is driven by her career and h

Wonderful story of love and redemption. Madison an Wes Reed seemed to be a picture perfect power couple. They both were well known television journalist but they had a huge secret - their marriage was a failure. Then the unbelievable happened, Wes was fatally injured in a car accident. The next few weeks were a blur for Madison and she never saw the extreme changes coming.

Ray has out done herself with this work..."trust your heart...it always knows the way." Madison had to work through betrayal

This was my first time reading a book from this author, Francis Ray. I really enjoyed reading it because the storyline was very different and it grabbed my attention. It was well written and the characters were believable. I hope to read many more books from Francis Ray in the future. 4 stars for this great read!

I love Francis Ray, her books always make me feel so giddy and happy. I don't know if I could be the kind woman that would take of my husband's love child produced by an affair but Melinda did it and with grace. Days later I am still thinking about this story. Off to finish the trilogy.

This was a good romance with a few unusual twists. Madison's husband is killed in a car accident leaving her with his child by his girlfriend to raise. How Madison heals from his betrayal and learned to both trust and love again was hard to put down.
Lisa
A very charming book. I loved the relationships that developed with all the characters in the book. I felt the secret that Zacary held on to, could have and should have been brought out sooner. But even with that said a very sweet plot.

Not sure I would have handled the situation the same. I give Madison credit for forgiving Zachary, his lies were major. I even enjoyed Camille and Gordon's story. A good read you won't be disappointed.

This is by far the best romance novel I've read for African Americans. I love how it has so many twists and turns, but still portrays what real love is and how it's all one needs to overcome anything.
