The heart knows what it wants. But is that really true if it’s been broken too many times?

All I wanted to do was to work side by side with my father in his design business. But a family secret killed one man I loved and caused another one to turn his back on me. Now my hearts in pieces.

With no support, I made decisions to survive and advance my business. I admit it had instant rewards, but devastating consequences.

Now I find myself in love with my best friend. A man from another race.  I know it shouldn’t matter.  But this is an issue for me. I don’t know if it’s my age or upbringing.

He knows some of the things I’ve done, but not all of it.  Would he stay if he did?

Should I use my questionable business decisions as an excuse to walk away from love and protect my heart from another heartbreak?  Or give love one more chance.

“I did enjoy the story it was fast paced, and I was constantly wanting to find out what happened next.  I like that you address social issues without shoving them down the reader’s throat.”

 I just want to say that this books is so refreshing and easy to read. I love to read but it's hard sometimes because of the distractions in my life. So I tend to drift off and get frustrated because it would take me a long time to read a book. After a year I finally picked up the book and decided to read it. I couldn't put it down. I love the story. Especially of how this young lady became so powerful through her struggles. It's been a month and I'm almost done reading. I'm glad I went straight to the back to see that this is a series. I look forward to reading all of your books.
