I rarely have such strong feeling about a character with so many emotions. Morgan got on my nerves so much; I wanted to scream a few times. How was she in a relationship with a married man and have the audacity to think that it was okay? I dare her to speak any truths where it’s okay to disrespect his marriage. I did not like either of them initially. Let’s talk about the story’s snippet and my views why you should read this story if you enjoy being engrossed in a story to the hilt.
Morgan Walker was a member of a mid-sized dysfunctional family of strange individuals. The dynamics within the family was confusing, frustrating and highly emotional. Morgan was the rabble-rouser in the bunch. There was the fashion model sister and Morgan’s hated nemesis Yolanda, her favorite brother Corey, Jeremiah the automobile salesman and Keith the entrepreneurial party planner. Collectively, the siblings did not like one another, individually the paring of who liked whom, was even more confabulating.
I could never get a clear handle on why so much conflict could cause the amount the damage without a concise reason. Then to elevate the story, Morgan chose to be in a relationship with a married man. Even after she discovered his deceit, Morgan decided to stay with Zeke, the liar. She justified her position because she just wanted to be loved. I get that baby girl, but you needed to find your Own man and to love.
Aside from having issues with loving the wrong man she also had a car on its last leg, as well as having a mediocre job at the Airport. On her way home one day her car hardly made it to Jeremiah’s place of employment where she asked to use his discount. He unkindly refused his sister and sent her on her way, apparently not caring whether she made it to her destination. By the way, Sir Rudeness Jeremiah had his car repairs done by a friend who owned an auto repair shop. The day Morgan stopped by to see her brother was the same day she met his friend Darren. Darren was not Morgan’s type. He was light-skinned and over-weight. Characteristics such as those were not appealing to Morgan. She was rude to Darren with her cold reception; I could feel the chill in the air based on her shoulder shrug and rudeness in response to his greeting.
As luck would have it, Morgan’s car stopped on the side of the road, and she had no one to call for help, so this was her wakeup call. It was evident her life needed to change when she phoned Zeke, and he too left her stranded without a care. The lucky part was the fact that Darren happened to come to her rescue and helped, despite her rudeness the day before. Later,Morgan started to see Darren from a different point of view. The lighter side was okay. This new revelation progressed into being in a relationship. Initially, Morgan had reservations because he wasn’t her usual type of companion. Darren was only hesitant for a brief period. Darren knew what he wanted and began his pursuit. He was the best choice to have the love she needed and deserved. Over the course of the story, each learned to be what the other needed. The sexual encounters were beautiful and sexy. I would have liked a closer connection, and little more action- but I’m happy with the stories outcome. However, the family dynamics issues were never resolved to my satisfaction. Uggh! maybe this will be addressed in another story. Conversely, this was a delightful story. It is undoubtedly worth reading. 4.0 Stars.
