FOREVER AND A DAY
Monica James has always given in to her sexual desires. To hold back is just not natural for the sassy radio talk-show host. But when she starts dating shy neighbor Preston Walker, she learns that sometimes intimacy doesn't involve sex, especially since the sexy professor is saving himself for marriage. In this day and age, however, Monica has trouble believing this, even when one of his students tries to stake claim.
Mello reverses roles, with a dominant female who still maintains her femininity. Her description of scenes and characters is near perfect. The sassy dialogueespecially from the secondary charactersbrings smiles. On the downside, the prologue is somewhat blasé; the story is more interesting without it. Overall, this is a great read.
