CHAMPAGNE KISSES (3) by Zuri Day: Donovan Drake is all work and no play until he meets Marissa Hayes. Captivated by her curves and her intelligence, Drake pursues her by showing her what a good man looks like. Though her attraction to Drake is one she can’t ignore, Marissa’s reluctance stems from a menacing figure from her past who refuses to allow her to move on. Day knows how to tell a story, but the sugary sweetness of the language is not flattering, and the predictable premise makes it hard to get swept up in the story.
