The promotions I found on instagram from the author drew me in. Before I ever saw the title or blurb, I knew I wanted to read this book. I loved the depiction of the fun, cute, confident, voluptuous, BOSS-CHICK that was Nia Badi. And as I read the book, I was not disappointed. Not only was the leading lady a fictional work of art, but so was her leading man. We all deserve someone like Boyden, someone who takes the time learn our love language and loves us so unconditionally and authentically. I love black love, and this young couple was a great shining example of what it can look like.
