Blurb (from Goodreads):
Compromise is a word Annabelle Macon knows well. Sacrifices at home, in college and with her career, have all given her the tools to be the person she is. Now it seems she must also make concessions for her long-time love, Jackson Storme.
Six months into their relationship, and he’s already making unrealistic demands. With distance putting that much more of a strain on their relationship, how are the two ever going to manage?
Old insecurities have a way of resurfacing, making Anna feel less than suitable for someone like Jackson. She’s worked hard to get to where she is now. Her life and her work are clashing, making matters worse. Bringing a whole new meaning to work/life balance. But Anna knows that with a little give and take everything will fall into place, regardless of the obstacles that may stand in her way.
Interracial Contemporary Romance.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Now I understood why he slowed up. It wasn’t because he missed me. It was so he could remind me who I belonged to.”
This was an okay adult contemporary romance, but I did lose interest a bit.
Annabelle and Jackson had quite an explosive relationship in this book. They assumed things, jumped to conclusions, and made hasty decisions based on these assumptions, and their relationship was just on/off, up/down, and all over the place. They didn’t listen to each other enough, and just didn’t communicate well at all, and it was wonder their relationship was hard for them because of it!
This book basically consisted of the ups and downs of Jackson and Annabelle’s relationship, with a couple of hot sex scenes when they were actually talking to each other. I did find the lack of communication and jumping to conclusions a bit annoying, and I did lose interest a bit when the whole book seemed to continue in the same fashion.
The ending to this was also a cliff-hanger, which for me was also a little irritating.
6 out of 10.
