In one glance, this book was like another cliche interracial romance book. But when you dived deep, you'll know that this deserved 5 stars, at least from me.

Loved how it engaged me from the very first page.

Good quick read

I like this book,it was a nice way to spend a Sunday evening. Johari & Rald where to different people from different worlds who ended up finding love with one another. It was a very unique story indeed. Rald needed an out to get away from his sociopathic wife w/o having to give her half of his family company,he put a plan in place to buy a struggling company owned by Johari and seduce her. His plan to use her to get away from his crazy wife goes up in smoke when he falls in lo

OMG THIS BOOK WAS SOOO GOOOD. I LOVED IT. I found the book on her website cheaper than on amazon. If you want a good book pick this book up and read it. This is the first book by this author that I have read, but I will read some more by hers in the future.

Right from the beginning this book was captivating. I love the way the main character though and spoke. I love how the female lead was not a wimp and did not automatically believe what someone told her about her man. This was just a great read altogether.

I must admit it, I got so excited when I discovered that fairly recent Shara Azod book. I was so elated in fact that I did not fully read the synopsis and that was my downfall lol
I do not and cannot tolerate adultery in any way shape or form in my romance books. That itself marred the story from the beginning and left a very bitter taste in my mouth as I was reading.

Johari the self made owner of a natural cosmetic brand. Unfortunately, being hard on her luck she has to resort to selling her comp

Great read!

Honestly I didn't know what to expect when I came upon this book, and I was pleasantly surprised as I kept reading. I enjoyed the plot twists and turns, and the story kept me in anticipation. The emotional aspect of Johari and Rald's relationship was very well written, and I liked how Shara Azod didn't excuse or glorify infidelity. They fell in love unintentionally for different yet similar reasons, which turned out to be very deep reasons. Love is powerful, our need for love is power

This was a very good book. Even though it was only 173 pages, the story was complete and full bodied. That's all a reader ever really asks for. A book doesn't have to be 1000 pages to get its message across and that it did. Real issues came up in this book: Racism, interracial relationships, power, mental illness, what matters most in life, you name it.

Rald Vollmer was dead inside until he met Johari. She gave him life. It was wonderful to see how she melted the coldness of his heart.

I felt sorry for the hero Raid. Here he was stuck in marriage he thought he couldn't walk away from without losing a chunk of his family's legacy. He went through extensive planning to get rid of his shallow racist wife only to find out thew legacy he was trying to protect was being run by his racist father. Unfortunately, to execute his plan he had to drag in an innocent, Johari, and destroy her dream in the process. What Raid had fail to plan for was the ex-husband trying to safe Johari, his ...more
