Excellent book.
Well written.
Relationship is wonderfully developed.
Plot unfolds in tightly contructed layers.
Great main and secondary support characters.
The characters' actions are logical and plausible.
Off the hook chemistry between the two romantic leads.
Seriously hot love scenes.

Big recommendation!
Was planning to give this a 3 star just for the potential this had but the unbelievable amount of back-and-forth verbal foot shuffling and forced drama that happens continuously in here ruined any enjoyment I initially had when I started this. I know I was supposed to empathize with the heroine given the traumatic childhood she had but I only wanted to throttle her. She is supposed to be this independent, strong, savvy business woman & perfect role model all around, but really she's this vul ...more
No Commitment Required was a sweet and romantic story with a nice dose of heat generated by Michael and Yvonne who have firecrackers of chemistry bursting all around them. This unexpectedly emotional story had me laughing and crying. The characters were well developed, revealing and working through their emotional baggage from tragic, yet believable pasts.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a heart-warming romance between two people who, despite their best efforts to keep thin

Very nice, readable romance novel. Engaging, realistic characters, and, unlike several books I've read recently, nothing that made me roll my eyes. And, something that I don't really notice until I find a book like this one that does it really well--the writing itself is very fluid and transparent, serving the story rather than getting in its way.

Recommends it for: interracial romance enthusiasts.
Oh man, I read this book, promptly forgot the plot, then bought it from Amazon and read it again, promptly forget that I've read it, and haven't reviewed it as yet. This must be remedied.

The plot is as follows: Yvonne is a busy young woman, busy, busy, busy. She wears a wedding ring to stop would be suitors in their tracks, and works hard enough on her line of lingerie shops. Michael is a guy who plays fast and loose with ladies hearts, never stopping, never a hitch in stride.

So, with no romanc

I guess it is kinda wrong for a thirteen year old to have this in her home library because it's not really for my age.... Yeah...

I give this book 3 stars for being origional but with a twist! Instead of it being the usually white person with white person(no offence, seriously, not trying to be rude or anything), it's with a one man and a african woman. YAY! I like this because the world needs more inter-racial babies. is that even how you spell inter-racial?
Anyways, I feel like the book should

An Enjoyable Read

'No Commitment Required' is a story filled with heartache, sorrow, guilt, envy, lust, desire, love and passion. From the start, the characters capture you and keep you turning the pages. The characters 'main and supporting' are believable as are the plot and pace of the story. The instant attraction and passion between Michael and Yvonne was HOT and the love scenes were very passionate! This novel was definitely a tear-jerker. Couldn't wait to find out if they would make it. Bot

This is on my keeper shelf. Yvonne is a strong, intelligent businesswoman who has a tragic past. Michael has also been scarred by love and thinks he and Yvonne are perfect for a no-strings fling.

Before long they both let their guards down and fall in love despite their best intentions. I've read this so many times and the journey never gets old.

I really loved this story as it was the beginning of my IR craze of reading. This will always be one of my favorite books.

When I first started reading this book I loved both the male and female lead. Then the last few chapters pissed me off and that's why I can't give this a 5.

This is the story of Yvonne an woman who has a thriving business but is hiding her past because she fears being left alone and Michael who works at a consulting firm and has never gotten over the hurt he endured from his 1st marriage. They meet and the sparks fly but neither wants a commitment. Of course they start to fall for each other but

I thought the book had so much more potential than what I read. Too many thoughts were in the book, too many tragedies that were back to back. Also, the thought processes didn't have smooth transitions. I had to read a few places twice maybe 3x's to see if I read it correctly and which character was saying it. This was my first full interracial novel and I was disappointed. I really wanted to love it, but it was just ok. I hope the next one is better than this one or it may be a while before I c ...more

There are scars and then there are wounds. Scars heal with time, but wounds if left unattended can cause you to have to constantly have to tend to them and you miss so much life while doing so. That's what I learned from this book. If you allow it lovw can heal all.

This book is romance at its best. I'll definitely be recommending this one to lovers of IRR.

I really didn't care for this book. The synopsis reads better than the book. While I did find the leading man sexy and intriquing, the leading lady came off as immature and uniteresting.

I rolled my eyes so many times while reading this book. I will say this for it though, it is unlike any romance novel I have read before. The main characters have REAL problems.
