The Plug and The Privileged By Mercy B.
I am not as up to date on Urban literature as some. I always love the challenge of reading about life outside of my bubble. I try really hard to read with an open mind, especially when I read a new author’s story, I want to be able to better grasp the authors message. I wasn’t completely clear about this story’s direction so I had to stay focused and pay attention to what was happening. The initial characters were the parents RaMeek and Bella. I’ll need to go back and read their story to have some of my questions answered. In this story, Reign, Fabian and Rocell were the featured storyline characters with Rowe, Mali, Rahmeek, Bella and family as supporting cast.
Reign and Fabian had been married for four years and the relationship’s warm and cuddly moments somehow signaled that something was a bit off. The affection was there but something just did not seem right… You’ll see what I mean as you read the story. Roc, Reign and Rowe’s relationship, that too was an interesting read. I could feel their familial connection and comraderies between the trio. Roc and Mali’s relationship was clearly doomed from the start. Mali apparently burned her bridge in a previous story…Roc and Rowe have a different connection that I am hoping Mercy will explore in the follow-up story. Rowe was definitely a mystery woman with many layers that need to be pealed back to enjoy. Roc walking in on her intimate moment had him in his feeling… I guess that would be kind of awkward if you had unrequited feelings for that person.
The little drama with Reign and Fabian, I was expecting, as he was too good to be true. I actually was hoping she would take care of his butt for his arrogance. I could feel something was going to happen to blow his little plans.. The six degrees of separation with Roc’s mad scientist for his new designer drug was unexpected and a nice little twist to the story. I like the mad scientist and Reign as a couple. He’s approachable and a much better match for Reign than pompous Fabian… Can you tell that I don’t like Fabian? The doctor’s confidence, did not come across as cocky. I liked his heart. The backstory with his mom and the homeless women added a nice touch to making him the hero in my heart. This story had so many emotional moments and dramatic episodes to keep the story rolling. My only regret is having to wait to see what happened with Reign and Fabian, and with Roc and Rowe… Overall this was a very nicely told love story. 4.8 Stars
