Who's Your Daddy?!?!

Chante Chambers is sexy, bright, quick-witted and impatient. What Chante wants, Chante gets, courtesy of Daddy. Daddy is Chante's ex fiancé and boss, Jason McGee. Despite their failed relationship, Chante is Queen Bee and HBIC at Jason's World Productions. Many of men have crossed Chante's path, but none of them can hold a candle to Jason. That is until she meets Mr. Tall, Caramel and Handsome - Keith Simmons. Keith is everything that Jason is not - faithful. Just as a relationship is starting to blossom between Chante and Keith, Jason finally decides he is ready to be the man that Chante has always wanted him to be. Torn between two lovers, the past and the future, which will Chante choose?

In her debut novel, Donneil D. Jackson does a wonderful job of capturing the intensity of an on again/off again relationship. CHANTE'S SONG has something for everyone. There is plenty of drama, flavored with sex and a dollop of romance, to balance this novel. It was difficult to hold back the laughs. The writing, vivid and comical, is the hook. However, this novel falls short with its editing. It was riddled with errors. This flaw is relatively minor compared to the great storyline, but it's because of the errors that it misses the mark of a 5-star rating. Overall, CHANTE'S SONG is an engaging and highly amusing story. Donneil D. Jackson is a refreshing new voice and I look forward to her future endeavors.
