Jai | 4 comments How does this sound? I just published and I am looking for opinions of all kinds. I would love reviews of the book itself.

“The act of forgiveness is an illusion brought on by temporary insanity. It never fails, the illusion melts away in the heat of any decent argument.” I looked pass Terrance and saw that we were being watched…

Kennedy Elyce Thomas is a fifth grade educator at an inner city school in Atlanta, whose passion for providing life and academic lessons to her students is hitting closer to home this school year. Living her life as an endangered species, one of the world’s few self-proclaimed commitment phobic females, has proven to be a reliable and successful method for avoiding love’s corruption. Nevertheless, her beliefs are tested and her world is shattered after a new teacher, Terrance Amire, is hired for the upcoming school year.

Through a school year wrought with relentless ex’s, dramatic yet loving friends, family and all that entails, romance, anger, and love, what will be created? Will the year establish a genuine relationship or merely an attachment that will fizzle out at the first sign of emotional rain? Is Terrance determined enough and is Kennedy strong enough to overcome their largest romantic obstacle: Kennedy herself? Only the pages will tell.

In this contemporary, African-American romance, Kennedy learns that enlightenment is not solely for the students in her class, but at times, for the teachers as well. Overall, with the help of her friends, Kennedy soon discovers that while there is life Before and After love, Enduring Love is a completely different adventure [image error]

Christy Stewart (christyleighstewart) It sounds great! I'm not a romantic, or so romantics say, but even I think it sounds very sweet and touching. I like the idea of them both being teachers and Kennedy not being some chick lit stereotype.
