Although I frequently read books in varying numbers of pages, I knew this one was lengthy (500+ Pages). Still, I read this book in one and a half days. The story covered many details and left with as many questions at the end of the tale. Sage and Adonis were from dissimilar backgrounds. Sage’s single mother reared her alone and made sure her needs met. What she failed to give Sage were the things she needed the most. Her mother’s love and affection were never an experience Sage could claim. Adonis, on the opposite side had a loving family and an abundance of friends and associates. He ran a business outside the confines of legality, but he also had legitimate business ventures. Sage was a loner, who only had three people as friends. Her roommate Destiny and a fellow student named Dre. The six degrees of separation came into play with the relationship dynamics between Ivy, Dre, Adonis, Destiny, and Sage.
For much of the story, it appeared that Sage was chasing after the D. Then, at some point, Adonis decided he wanted to add Sage to his stable of women. I can honestly say from the beginning of the story, I did not like Adonis. His description stated he was extremely handsome, fit, and could handle the monster in his pants. That’s one of the reasons he had so many women vying for his company. That part of the story was not appealing and mostly frustrated me. Sage’s situation, I better understood after her mother revealed the circumstance associated with her birth and conception. I’d already figured that part out. It was still difficult to swallow. I continued to believe she could do better than Adonis and his noncommittal treatment with her heart. A few areas in the story needed a tighter connection in the storyline. Sometimes the filler communication in telling a tale distracts. As well as the extreme amounts of times Sage and Adonis spent in bed. A lot of sexual activity took place between the pages of this tale. Overall, the story was good. I’ll have to remember to come back for the second story because part one ended with a cliffhanger. 4.5 Stars
