“She had to be about twenty-four, no more than twenty-five at the max. He couldn’t remember the last time he was attracted to a woman that young. But as he continued to watch her every movement, he felt a tugging desire in the pit of his stomach. With every step she took, a part of him couldn’t help but be thankful he’d been born a man.”
Brenda Jackson is one of the hardest working Romance writers in America. Did you know that she writes almost 8 books a year? Her new book, Her Little Black Book is a variation on a theme. In this book a woman, Sonya Morrison, who is getting married, gives her little black book of hot dates to her cousin, Courtney Adams. This book may be full of hot, dark, tall handsome men, but Courtney’s initial experiences make her realize that she and Sonya don’t have the same taste in men. Courtney already had bad experiences and her parents had a rough go, so she is a little bit apprehensive. When he first date gets arrested, and another leaves with a waiter, and sticks her with the check, she can’t help but wonder if this was such a good idea. Oh yeah and then there is the guy who thinks this is a sure thing… Courtney is close to giving up.
Then she meets Lake Masters (I like that name, Brenda. Just a cool name), and he makes her body tingle. Problem is he is 10 years older than she is, and he is sexy, intelligent and wealthy. Lake knows how to appreciate and treat a woman. Love is not easy, and as you can guess sexual tension and complications arise. Brenda Jackson delivers an intriguing and interesting romance. Her Little Black Book should be counted among her very best, and Brenda has written national best sellers and is an award winning author. If you like romance from feminine point of view, check out Her Little Black Book.
