I have read all of these series thus far and Jaxon and yet to disappoint me. I love how he is bringing all of the characters together into one book. I am on egg shells to get to the end, but once I do I will be crying for it to continue. Please speed up, but yet go slow...if that makes ANY sense.
Jaxon Grant novels are so important because they showcase the complicated ways in which black gay men have to manage and defend their identity, self-worth and position in a world that does not want them to exist. However, what make this book and his other novels so beautiful is that they are universal in their appeal. One does not have to be black and gay to feel a connection to our characters problems, issues and struggles. Whether, gay, straight, black, white, male or female our common thread is to love and be loved and to be happy. Jaxon Grant is the master weaver who weaves so much realism into this book that makes it elegant and raw, sexy and alluring, romantic and honest and most of all, captivating and smoldering hot. This book is another achievement for Jaxon Grant as he creates another novel that is timeless and will be remembered for many, many years.
