Jean Travis has the job of announcing the latest lottery winner on TV and is stunned to find that Patrick Bennett, her teenage crush, is the top mega winner. They haven't seen each other in years, and Patrick is thrilled to renew their acquaintance. Jean, not so much. After all, a lot has changed since they used to study together and Jean worked so hard to hide her feelings. Now that he's won so much money, Patrick faces a whole new world of demands from family, friends, coworkers, strangers. The only person he knows for sure he can trust, is Jean…
Kitt (Fearless Men) explores the complications of interracial dating in this steamy but uneventful romance. Multiracial Black woman Jean Travis often struggles to sort out who actually wants to date her versus those who just see her as exotic. But race is the furthest thing from her mind when Patrick Bennett, her white high school crush, wins the lottery and Jean is tasked with presenting him with his prize on behalf of the mayor's office, her employers. Despite the life-changing circumstances under which the pair reconnect, the second chance romance that follows is remarkably low-key. The only threats to Patrick and Jean's budding relationship are Jean's insecurities about interracial dating and some minor complications with Patrick's newfound wealth. Though Kitt's mellow story offers plenty of pleasant escapism, readers will likely grow frustrated that Jean seems to exist solely to help Patrick adjust to being a multimillionaire; her own career ambitions and emotional struggles take a backseat to his. Still for fans of breezy romances with plenty of heat, this will be just the right kind of fluff.
I really enjoyed the story and felt it got better the further on I read. I liked the more realistic situations and that there was less of the usual romantic misunderstandings. As a white woman I appreciated learning what a biracial woman might feel dating and trying to decipher the intentions of others.
