Very good story filled with passion, suspense, and love between two people from two totally different worlds.

This book had its good points. I am just discovering this genre written for bw/wm relationships and most have been interesting. I wish there were a larger variety of stories written in this genre. Ebony Angel is one of the better IR books. The conflict between Richard and his family seemed over the top, how his mother disowned her son because she didn't want to admit to her Black Italian heritage because she had been bullied about it as a young woman. Richard may have also had hang ups about bei ...more

This book had its good points. This is a genre I am just discovering and, more often than not, the books are interesting. This one had a lot against it. Ebony seemed too innocent for a young woman living in the 'hood' and falling for a man who was too nice, favoring the opinions of a young man who is known to be a drug dealer. The situation between Ebony, her mother and an individual named Dan was kind of confusing. Tae, the drug dealer, had far too much influence over Ebony, even tried to kill ...more
I really enjoyed this book I liked how Richard and Ebony met and fell in love . I liked the Ebony's cousin Skeet, and could not stand Trae. This was book that was hard to put down it kept me interested until the end. I got so mad at Trae and Ebony I was talking to the book , I could not understand why she did not walk away from him and why she never saw him for what he truly was evil. I felt bad for Richard he went through so much growing up and even as an adult with his family. This is a good b ...more

First, I have to say that I did not enjoy this as much as Beauty and the Beast. Ebony's ex and friends are just a bunch of ghetto thugs. I spent most of the book wondering why she and her daughter didn't just distance themselves from these people. The ex was one manipulative SOB, but I have a say the ex's best friend was lovable. Yes, he was a thug and a drug dealer, but I could see some goodness in him.
Overall, not my cup of tea because I'm not into the whole urban scene.

I injoyed that the book took place in Chicago!!! Big thumbs up on that aspect,
But why was the white guy made to look week?☹
Also Ebony kind of bugged me,
Why did she have to come off as not a strong woman?
I felt that the book did not rap up nicely.
So I guess it was an okay read

One to many twists and turns.....

The story started out promising... but as the plot thickened... the twists and turns with the secrecy repeating itself was a bit much. Over all it still was a good story.

The characters in the book did not catch my imagination at all.

I really hated Ebony. She was a little too ghetto for my tastes.

When Deatri was six years old, her mother was told that because of Deatri's dyslexia, she'd probably never learn how to read. At that time, it was recommended Deatri partake in a specialized reading curriculum. Unbeknownst to Deatri's parents, this additional help their daughter would need, from a teacher, was actually Deatri being taken out of reading class to sit in the hallway with a tape recor ...more
