Zuri Day cranks up the heat with an explosively sexy tale about a woman who's about to get a crash course in lust. . .
First grade teacher Gwen Smith was happily married--until her husband got himself a twenty-something mistress and filed for divorce. Now just months away from turning forty-one, Gwen is back in her tiny California hometown, caring for her ailing mother, convinced her life is over. Then she meets Ransom Blake.
Ransom is a twenty-six-year-old hunk who pushes every one of Gwen's buttons. Gwen has no intention of getting involved with a younger man, but he won't take no for an answer. So when he shows up at her classroom unannounced, Gwen can't help but tell him off--and then she realizes he's come for his daughter. But Ransom isn't shy about letting Gwen know how she can make it up to him. And if he gets his way, Gwen will lose all her inhibitions--and her heart. . .
"An exciting read. Zuri Day does a fantastic job. . ."
--Urban Reviews on Lies Lovers Tell
Day (The Lies Lovers Tell\n) spins an erotic but slow-moving tale of love in unexpected places. Beautiful, talented, and ambitious, 40-year-old divorc e Gwen Smith never thought she would be moving back to her California hometown to care for her aging mother, much less falling in love with a much younger man. Though Gwen is a likable, sympathetic character, 26-year-old single dad and black Fabio fantasy Ransom Blake is too inconsistent to justify her passion for him. Crude and awkward language undermines the love scenes. Day hints at conflicts, but few real troubles arise, and not even the return of Ransom s former girlfriend will make readers truly doubt that Gwen and Ransom will get their happy ending. The story is only redeemed by a thoughtful examination of single fatherhood and some entertainingly over-the-top secondary characters. \n
