This is a sequel to Ms Garrisons's first book New Beginnings. I was pleased to see this follow up took place shortly after the original.

From the opening synopsis we introduced to the difficulties Shawn faced from her early years and how this reflected in her personal and emotional development. As each of the main six women were slowly introduced I felt the author done exceptionally well in making both their relationships with each other and their own individual personalities much clearer.

I received a copy of this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.
This book was a bit of a pleasant surprise for me. The improvement in Garrison's writing from the first book in this series to this one is noticeable, and very welcome. In this book, Garrison introduces the final sister of the family and her future partner and we get to go along on their journey to one another.

In the sequel to New Beginnings we welcome back sisters Sam and her partner Jenna and baby Jackson. Shawn and her partner Rebecca and we finally meet Stacy and Randy.

As in the first book Cori takes us through the lives of these wonderful women and how they cope with everyday life. We meet Sandy with her pearls of wisdom and Randy who may look like a tough police woman on the outside but has feelings that she wishes to hide on the inside.

This a book of disappointments, trust but most of all love.

I read Cori's first book New Beginnings and was awed her writing. This second book, The Human Side, has just about bowled me over. The writing is wonderful, ebbs and flows with emotion. I have grown closer to this group of sisters and loved ones. I could step right in this book and feel as if I were home. You feel their highs and lows and oh my can you ever feel the love. Panty melting sex, by the way. The family you make for yourself will always have your back. And I agree with some of the othe ...more
