Certified loctician and salon owner, Nani Sanchez, is good without love. After parting ways with her high school sweetheart, she has decided relationships are not for her. Instead, she’ll fulfill her physical needs with whomever she chooses, whenever she chooses, and always on her terms. However, when her old flame reignites her fire, letting go takes on a whole new meaning.
Romello Malone is a serial entrepreneur. With several businesses under his belt, and being a present father, he has little time to entertain dating. Yet, when he reconnects with the one he let get away, time becomes still and his love is certain. If only he could find a way to mend her heart, especially when he was the one to break it.
Will Romello be given a second chance at love? Can Nani forgive the man she’s worked to forget? Beneath the scabs, have the old wounds of their hearts healed or festered?
The cover drew me in. I didn’t pay attention to the title nor the synopsis. I knew when I saw all that beautiful chocolate I wanted to read and I’m glad I did! I liked this story. It was a story of self-reflection and forgiveness, heavy on the forgiveness. It was a story of growth. I loved the hustle that the main characters possessed. This story felt real, because we witnessed a huge double standard that goes down between men and women all the time. We hate to see it happen, but in reality it does. And while I hate the double standards we experience in life, that didn’t stop me from enjoying these characters. Now there were a few timeline issues within the story, but those weren’t biggies. This was my first read from this author and I’m looking forward to discovering more of her work.
