Mekhi Kage is every woman’s dream man. He’s suave, alpha, handsome, and wealthy. Mekhi craves control, and he likes everything to go his way. As the founder of For The People multimedia company, Mekhi is determined to put out quality content for his African American culture. So when BaddieBookBabe, an infamously tough book reviewer, gives a one star review to Mekhi’s most popular and highest paid author, he is determined to get her to remove the review… or join his team.
Because it’s best to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, right?
Jacintha Freeman, or the BaddieBookBabe as the literary industry knows her, is tough on books and even tougher on the authors that write them. She’s determined to make sure that Black people are portrayed in the brightest light and highest high in the books that are supposed to represent them. When she is recommended a book by Stone, a male author who stands for the complete opposite of what she believes in, Jacintha refuses to promote him as a noteworthy author – no matter how much Mekhi tries to get her to.
Because it’s best to stand firm on your values than fall for a handsome face, right?
When Mekhi offers Jacintha a job as his Top Critic, she is skeptical to accept, but does so with the intent of making the industry she loves better. As time progresses, enemies become lovers who turn to enemies and lovers all over again. Promises are made, secrets are kept, and reputations are destroyed. It comes as no surprise to anyone when their professional relationship turns personal, but will their love be able to stand when it wasn’t meant for each other to begin with?
First, let me say this book was so dope, I could not believe the magnitude of this romance level-up and the real-deal type of love situation the author explored. The story was a short take, but it was worth every page turn and words that inspired. Mekhi and Jacintha had a relationship to aspire for. It was nice; Jacintha did not let her parents’ problems color hers. Initially, I was concerned Jacintha would not accept Mekhi as her man. On the surface, they did not appear to be a match… but I gave in to the author’s demand. She knew what she was talking about with each page turned. The account took readers on a little adventure and an excellent enemies to lovers story that hit full force.
In this story, it was super sexy with Mekhi knowing how to take great care of Jacintha. A few times Jacintha needed to sit down and think, rather than reacting emotionally first. Relax, she got it together. Reminder, this was a short rendering, but you could not tell the way the story paced in a manner that kept me wiping my lips from all the drooling. The sexual scenes. Whew! The tale was about relationships and giving love a chance to expand. The narrative only had a smidge of drama, which made the chronicle more enjoyable, this edition did not need the extra, extra foolishness. The anecdote was a great read worth checking! Their love was meant for one another. It’s 5-Stars worthy.
