The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Sexy, suspense, intrigue, passion

Parris has been hiding out for years with a big secret. She has now been found and her world is about to change yet again. The complications of this change will not just encompass her but the man she has loved for years and the secret she has worked hard to protect.

Alers gives a beautiful story of lost love and family love and loyalty.

I read this book for the billionth time and it is still deserving of its original 5 Stars. This book was my introduction to AA Romance and will forever remain my absolute favorite.

Wow couldn’t even bring myself to finish this despite reading 95% of this. Parris read like a female MC from 80’s romance. A young Parris falls in love with the billionaire and is dramatically forced to leave him only to be found by him ten years later and coerced to return to her home state of Florida despite her life being in danger, because love? LOL.

The author goes to great lengths so that the hero was the only man the female MC slept with despite the passage of ten years making the charact

Enjoyable

This was a well thought out story. It was well written and characters were well developed. This story has several layers that worked well together. It had redemption, career changes, romance, suspense, intrigue, physical attacks , betrayal and undying love.
This story was written with intriguing twist and unexpected turns. Most questions were answered but room was left for additional stories if author wanted to expand.
This is good book. Editing was a little off but not a problem.

Interesting Plot but...

Can stay i enjoyed it but mainly because i was intrigued by the hostility amongst the Coles. I really wanted to find out more about Joshua but to be honest i was constantly annoyed with the characters, just had to power through. Hope the next book reveals more about the family and has less annoying characters.

It could of been

I didn't lover it or hate it, I just didn't like it!! Paris was a tad selfish and immature to me, I could not find anything that I liked about her. Martin truly loved her. Even more than their child who was kidnapped (😖) I would not recommended this as a good read.

Trust

Excellent read. I enjoyed the storytelling of Martin and Paris love affair. Intriguing how they became a couple. She had trust issues because of her marriage and relationship with Owen, her ex-husband. Interesting Owen was able to remarry have two children and move on with his life.. Really good read, I will seek additional work by Rachelle Alerts.

Horrible

This is my first time reading this author's book. The first part of the book was hilarious. Omg, I couldn't stop laughing. The female Parris was such an A$$. The second part was even worse. First and last time reading another book by this author. Thank God this boring aka horrible story only cost $.99 plus tax. Lmao.

I have been a fan of Ms. Alers for sometime but this was one of the best books I think she has written it had EVERYTHING LOVE, MYSTERY, ADVENTURE, JOY, HAPPINESS, HATE etc. it had it all. The characters were interesting and could be continue on with their own stories (books). Held my INTEREST from beginning to the end.

Good read

I really enjoyed this book, it was so much more than a love story. I really liked Martin and Parris, even though I felt it took her a little to long to tell what happened. There was a very good mystery within the story as well.

Old school romance. A complete story, instead of a two-month relationship.

I LOVED this book! Alers has created a love story full of complications, passion, and secrets that keep the pages turning. Parris is coming out of hiding, hiding from her ex-husband and her ex-lovers pasts. She's a victim of loving men who have complicated lives. Now she and her daughter return in hopes she and her ex-lover Martin can rekindle their passion and put the past where it belongs. Unfortunitely the secrets she's been hiding are going to come to the surface.

I thought this was a very w

Martin & Parris obstacles

What does one do when fear becomes all consuming and all powerful? What has when ambitions result in unthinkable choices being made that could effect an entire family? This is what is faced with Martin and Parris's relationship. While they had fire and passion it was so much more. As the weight of the Cole name wasn't something either truly realized had binded them so deeply. With the elements of Sammy, M.J. and Joshua the story took on a life of it's own that truly

It was a good read. It started out slow at the beginning, but then it got very interesting. I was so anxious to see who was trying to kill Parris. I was surprised when I found out who was behind the blackmailing. I give this book a 2 thumbs up.

I really enjoyed this book, it kept my interest from beginning to end, it was indeed a page turner. Parris sort of got on my nerves at times, but it was definitely a very hot romance and I loved the relationship between Parris and Martin, Martin is what I would call the perfect man.

I really enjoyed this book, very well written. This story flowed, there were no dry areas. The leading female drove me crazy, she had no courage at all, which was the only down side to the book. Where are our strong black women!!!!!
