For thirty-two years, Laney Travers has handled a lot of problems, but a relationship with a white man wasn’t one. Her love affair with gorgeous Tie Stevens seemed destined, however. She fell in love with his voice over the radio waves nearly three years ago. When Laney finally crosses paths with Tie at his talk and book signing, sparks fly between the two, and like two moths to flickering lights, they find themselves inseparable in bed and out of it.
But are they?
As a psychology professor, Laney can’t help but evaluate her interracial relationship through a socio-political lens, a cause of potential strife. Tie disagrees but secretly worries about maintaining his relationship with Laney because of his self-made status. When it comes to diplomas, he doesn’t stack up.
And Laney has a shameful secret that is enough to keep her from admitting her emotions. Is their chemistry one for the books or just a theory?

I RECEIVED AN ARC COPY FROM TULE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
THIS BOOK FOR ME WAS VERY GOOD. I ENJOYED THE STORY AND THE CHARACTERS. LANEY TRAVERS IS A PROFESSOR AND THE BOOK OPENS WITH HER ATTENDING A TALK GIVEN BY A RADIO SHOW TALK SHOW HOST THAT SHE LISTENS TO. SHE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE HIM SIGN HER BOOK WHICH WAS HIS LATEST WRITTEN COPY. WHEN THEY MEET BOTH ARE LOCKED THROUGH THEIR EYES. LATER WHEN SHE READS THE INSCRIPTION SHE SEES HE HAS ALSO LEFT HIS PHONE NUMBER. THOUGH ATTRACTED SHE DOES NOT KNOW WHETHER TO CALL OR NOT. SHE DOES. HE LEAVES THE NEXT DAY FOR HIS HOME TOWN AND SHE FEELS GOOD YET SAD.
WEEKS LATER SHE FINDS OUT THAT TIE STEVENS IS MOVING TO HER HOME TOWN AND HE WANTS TO BE TOGETHER. NOW AS MUCH AS SHE WANTS TO BE WITH HIM HER ISSUE IS THAT SHE IS AFRICAN AMERICAN AND HE IS WHITE. SHE FINDS HERSELF QUESTIONING HERSELF THROUGH HER FRIENDS ARE GIVING POSITIVE REINFORCEMENTS SHE BEGINS TO DOUBT HERSELF WHICH EFFECTS THEM AS A COUPLE. CAN THEY GET PAST HER MIND TO BE TOGETHER? BEING IN AN INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIP FOR OVER FORTY YEARS I FOUND THIS STORY TO BE VERY INTERESTING. MANY OF THE TERMS THE AUTHOR USED I ACTUALLY HEARD ESPECIALLY FROM FAMILY. FORTY YEARS LATER NO ONE REMEMBERS BUT AT TIMES STILL GET LOOKS FROM PEOPLE THAT HAS NEVER CHANGED I THINK NEVER WILL.
THE AUTHOR HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB IN WRITING WHAT IT IS LIKE AND I FOUND THIS STORY TO BE VERY GOOD AND I HOPE PEOPLE WILL TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT. I GAVE THIS BOOK FIVE STARS. FOLLOW US AT www.1rad-readerreviews.com
