Book 2: Backstage Benefits
LaQuette (Jackson) kicks off her Devereaux Inc. series which follows the trials and travails of a dynamic, Black Brooklyn family in spectacular fashion with this compulsively readable contemporary romance. High-powered businesswoman Jordan Dylan Devereaux III goes by Trey. Her father, Deuce, and his father, Ace, have been estranged for decades over Deuce's choice of a wife, and Deuce's most fervent wish is to acquire his father's business as retribution. He's spent years building up a rival corporation and now he tasks Trey with sealing the deal. But when Trey meets her penitent grandfather, who's dying of cancer and longs to reunite with his son, she has a change of heart and she also falls for his second-in-command, Jeremiah Benton, who's as close to her grandfather as a son. The palpable chemistry between Trey and Jeremiah turns into a raging fire of lust and love, but when Deuce finds out about Trey's actions, she may risk losing her father. LaQuette's strong heroine and hero shine on every page as they fight their way to the happy ending they deserve; sneaker heads, meanwhile, will be especially taken with the descriptions of both characters' style. Readers will eagerly await the next installment to this irresistible series. Agent: Latoya Smith, LCS Literary.
