First off, this author did a great job bringing the second part of the story to fruition. At the close of the first story, I was so sad and worried about the turn of events in the story. Part one had me in my feelings. I’ve said this before, and I will continue to remind readers of this point. If I am angry, upset, happy or in my feelings about a story, the author did his or her job. Readers, Ms. Danae, did her job in part two.
I must admit, most urban literature is not on my list or normal genre. Ms. Danae handled the dialogue in a way in which I can deal with the vernacular. The storyline alone pulled and tugged at my heart to want to see what happened between Lee, Maayad,and Mir. Esmin and Greigh’s relationship also piqued my interest to know what happened to them as well. And Esmin was like a popsicle I wanted to lick.
In the second part of the story, we learned Lee did not succumb to her injuries following the car accident. I was so happy and sad at the same time. I hoped she would not have lasting problems, nor would she have amnesia and go back with Yaad. This reviewer would have been most unhappy with that outcome. With that said, I had a feeling things would turn in her favor.
We learned the problems Yaad created in his role as Lee’s super crappy so-called boyfriend. The other women and all the dirt he participated in was astounding. I was elated when Lee would not give Yaad the time of day. I was equally as happy when Mir and Lee chose to be together after all the years of being best friends. I also loved Esmin and Greigh. I hope those two get their own story so that I can live vicariously through Greigh’s interactions with her fine man.
Each character was vividly etched into each window of this story. I liked the connections, the chemistry and the deep and abiding love between each couple. The friendship blossomed into a close-knit as close as a loving family could be. The couples bantering and the ladies loving gripes made this story a joy to read. I can’t wait for the next installment. Hint Hint!
