My Thoughts

I won an e-copy of this novel in a contest, mentioned I was a book reviewer, and promised the Author a review. Unfortunately, I was completely annoyed when I realized this was book 2 in the Black Hollywood Series. Book 1, Have I Told You, ended with a cliffhanger, and book 2 picks up where book 1 ended. Was I confused? -Yes. Did I eventually figure it out? -Yes, eventually I was able to piece everything together. (BTW, the Author does warn in the beginning of the book that you should read book 1 first).

Immediately, from page one. you are thrown into the action and drama that is Caston and Sabrina. She is in a coma and he is standing vigil, praying she will wake up and come back to him. Caston can’t imagine life without her.  Without reading book 1, you get a taste of Caston’s devotion to Sabrina.

Sabrina does wake up, and from there on it is nothing but sex, drama, and tears. Literally, every other scene Sabrina is crying. And she doesn’t just cry when she is depressed; she cries after sex, and when she is happy too!

All of her crying made me crazy… Enough already with the crying, lady! Take a zoloft!

Fortunately, the story was told from three different povs; Caston, Sabrina, and Mark’s perspectives were all reflected. Thank God. I don’t think I could have read this book if the POV was strictly Sabrina’s.

Speaking of Mark, (the villain); I enjoyed his character the most. Isn’t that weird? Aren’t you supposed to HATE the villain?

“All I want to do is strip her and claim her as mine…”

I enjoyed the author’s erotica writing style and how she crafted the sex scenes. Mark, the villain, likes rough sex, and he doesn’t seem to discriminate. Caston and Sabrina have a lot of sex, but it is tender love; romantic and sweet. Depending on your personal taste of erotica, you will get it all with this novel. BDSM “Sub” play -check, tender love making -check, sex with strangers -check, girl on girl -check. You get the drift.

Overall, I give this novel 3/5 stars. If you are interested in a novel with a strong alpha male, a damsel in some serious distress, soooo much drama, and lots of sex, you should give this series a chance!
