Love this story and the author. She weaves a tale that makes you want to sit along the sidelines and hope to capture a glimpse of their life in real life. Characters are well developed and true to life. I have read this book at least twelve times...seriously it gives me life and hope and dreams. I want to meet Satin, love her..tell her I can do better than..lol

This is the first novel I read, where I could relate to the love story between the characters. A beautifully written story

For Odessa Rose's first book, it was OK. I'm looking forward to reading her latest, though 'In The Mirror.'
