This is my first story by this author and possibly my last, especially if the same narrator is used. The story was okay, though I tired of Kiana saying “Why?” And the story progressed a bit too quickly, losing substance as a result. But so much of the good aspects of the story were overshadowed by the narrator’s horrible portrayal of the female characters. I couldn’t always tell when he was portraying a female or a male b/c they all sounded like a male. And, based on Kiana’s description, the narrator’s poor female voicing ability detracted from the story even more when he was portraying Kiana, which was a lot as a result of her being a main character. And I agree w/ 1 reviewer about the irritation with the use of acronyms without explanation of what they mean. On the positive, I really liked the small bits of humor and the author breaking from the overwhelming norm in fiction and especially romances to tell the story of an interracial relationship where the woman, the love interest, is a woman with brown skin (described as rich or deep cocoa) and curly hair. I liked that it was a romantic relationship with a 7-year difference between Kiana and Gianni, with Kiana being older at age 33. And I liked that Kiana’s physical description also broke the mold as far as figure or body shape, with Gianni liking her curves, her rounded ass, and plump lips (which were actually believable, unlike some stories).
However, Kiana’s easy and numerous orgasms were too unbelievable, so, even though letting go of some realism in fiction is the norm, that was just too much and detracted from my enjoyment of the story. And the 1 or 2 sex scenes were pretty fast. And though there was a disagreement near the end, overall, their getting together was too pat, too easy. Still, quite likable
