You Can't Plan Love - Synithia Williams
Having worked with Kenyatta for the last three years, Malcolm has resisted the temptation of an affair. But his attraction and growing feelings for his subordinate creates inner turmoil that he has to do something, even if it means stopping Kenyatta from marrying Brad.
Will they give in to their need to see if it's more than just lust? Is Brad going to let Kenyatta walk away from him without a fight? And, just how perfect is Brad?
Williams' debut novel is dramatic, passionate and certainly not your typical romance. Yes it has steamy love scenes but the core of the story is the complexity of relationships - a need for romance, being in control of emotions, giving into desire - it's all here. The author has created a story that's gripping and spirited yet it has touches of humor. Her characters are vibrant and real each with their own important role but doesn't detract from Kenyatta and Malcolm's developing relationship.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. From the get-go I just turned page after page - it was that absorbing. Williams has an easy style of writing which made the chapters flow effortlessly and her language suited the South Carolina setting but certainly didn't detract from the plot. Overall, if you're looking for a romance with excitement, love and a few final dramatic chapters, this is for you. A highly recommended read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for review. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not expected to give a positive critique.
