LeeSha McCoy is the author of all things African American Romance. She released her first book in 2012 and currently writes African American Urban Romance, Paranormal, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romantic Comedy, and Steamy Contemporary Romance under the pen name Karmen Kane. With over 30 books published to date, representation is important to her, so you will always find positive representations of black men and women in her books, with a focus on family bonds, growth, and above all, strong fiery heroines and the heroes that love the hell out of them for it. Writing novels that make her readers ‘feel’ is her mission; she does not just write stories to be read but for her readers to experience. As someone who has lived through many ups and downs in her personal life, she uses those experiences in all of her stories, priding herself on the realism in her work, regardless of genre.
“Rejection is redirection.”
Nik thought her life was great. She has a job she loves, incredible friends, loving, albeit overbearing, parents, and a long-term boyfriend. Until her long-term boyfriend ends the relationship stating he’s bored. Now, Nik is questioning everything. Luckily, her girls have her back.
I enjoyed this book. Nik was a fantastic lead character, and her journey is relatable. I loved the pacing, the themes, and the fact that this isn’t your typical romance.
The girls were all beyond amazing. I loved the sisterhood, love, and support in the group. Good friends are worth their weight in gold when Nik was at her lowest and had such a supportive group to help her find her way.
I enjoyed Nik’s development throughout this story. She definitely blossomed into a self sufficient queen and started seeing that she had to live her life and be the author of her own story.
I enjoyed the writing style, the dialogue, and the humor. This was a fun read, mixed with the perfect amount of drama. This is a fantastic book to read if you need a reminder to live your life and love your journey.
