Great Multicural Romantic Suspense

I was quickly drawn into the story from the start. I couldn't put it down until I was finished. Born into an affluent African American family, Corie, had rebelled by going after a `bad boy' and getting more than she bargained for, so much so, that now she's disgusted with herself for being weak and ineffectual in re-claiming her life. Laine an undercover cop had his own issues of having grown up on the other side of the tracks with an alcoholic father and knowing that even if he could reveal his true self, he could never fit in with the upper echelons of the society Corie belonged to. The story evolves so, that the characters are able to overcome their differences. Mostly made possible by Laine's persistence. Through his love and patience, he manages to give Corie back her self-esteem and strength in order to re-claim that part of her life she'd lost. The sizzling sensuality as these two finally give into their overwhelming attraction and passion is nothing short of heavenly. Hard to believe I almost did not purchase this book because of a few reviews I read at a different site, but I decided to give it a chance. So, glad I did. This was a good read!
