Recommends it for: AA women who have issues with IR.

Bailey Gentry is an African American woman who should have it all: she's a family lawyer, overcame a not so perfect childhood to achieve her dreams and has a best friend. Gentry only has one problem: she wants to settle down, have kids... but only with a black man. Of course, this is better said than done, since most of the 'brothas' that she's come across in her quest are well... trifling. They tend not to be gainfully employed, or live with their mothers, or just out of jail, or doing drugs.

Lackluster Debut

"A Box of White Chocolate", is the debut novel by Mr. Daamon Speller, and I purchased this novel because of the catchy title and the intriguing synopsis, unfortunately, it didn’t meet my expectations. It is just an okay read. I thought the storyline had great potential, and the main character definitely had some deep issues, but I don’t think the author pulled it together effectively. Bailey Gentry’s witty dialogue and sometimes hilarious antics although, entertaining just wasn’

Two words: Don't Bother.

It took me a long time to finish this work--six days is long for such a short work for me. However, I refused to put it down because I must finish everything I pick up to read.

I am not going to say I hated it because that's just not right. I am going to say wow, kudos to Mr. Speller for even getting published in the first place. I am not a hater and I will say that with this novel, the author is one up on me. Still, I am amazed.

It wasn't my cup of tea. Of course, I am on

Wow! Enjoyed this book. The lead character Bailey reminds me of other women who want a man but has what Rex calls "got-to-be-itis". Sometimes what we are looking for is right in front of us but because the package may be different we miss it. This is definately a keeper for my shelf.

this was a good book about interacial romance and the hang up that alot of people face no matter what. i learned that u should never miss your chance to love no matter what the outside package looks like. think with your heart and not your eyes.
