  • Southern Heat

    I very much enjoyed this opening to Women Who Dare. Valinda was irritating as she waffled in her decisions; however, I realized that never having had freedom from men before was the reason why. I would have enjoyed more of her thoughts to go with her logic. Drake is a fantastic hero. I particularly enjoy his family ties and his strength of commitment to community. The ending felt anti-climactic after all the build up. There is also some homophobia.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Review: Rebel, by Beverly Jenkins

    Why did I wait so long to read Beverly Jenkins? Well it's a simple answer of there being so many books and not enough time to read them all. But still. I'm glad I finally pulled this one off my shelf because it lived up to all the praise Jenkins' writing gets from readers. With this book, you get a romance, a history lesson, and a craving to read more from the author. I've listened to many interviews with Beverly Jenkins over the years and knew I'd learn something upon reading Rebel. And I knew what I'd learn would be accurate because of all the research that goes into her books. What I wasn't sure of was how it would be delivered in the book. I knew next to nothing about New Orleans after the Civil War (or much of it's history in general). And I also didn't know many details about the immediate aftermath of the war for anyone living in the South. History classes didn't get into the details. I feel I've been missing out on knowing just how things were before the Civil Rights area, which was more the focus in classes. Now, having finished the book, I feel I have a general idea of some aspects of life at that time and am leaving the book wanting to learn more. What way Jenkins works New Orleans history into the world building and framework of the story is so natural when other authors may struggle keep information from bogging down a story. Again, this isn't a boring, dry history lesson of a book. It's far from that. It's a romance! It's a story of discovering love, a story of family (of blood, race, and the family of community), and a story of the importance of education. Beverly Jenkins is able to masterfully weave all this into a romance between two rebellious souls during a troubling time in America, leaving the reader with a sense of hope  and the happy ending we know everyone deserves. This may be my first time reading Beverly Jenkins, but it definitely won't be my last! I may have found my gateway into Historical Romance.

    Thanks for your feedback!
