MAKE YOU MINE
Bryant's latest turns out to be an extremely charming and intelligent
take on a standard plotline. The humor and growing love between the lead characters makes this a highly recommended read. Bryant has created two compassionate and lovable characters.
Tamara has been trying to get Julius and Caress together for a date since forever. She just knows they're meant to be together, but she can't convince them. When the date finally happens, sparks fly, and their one night is the definition of high combustion. But Julius is leaving the following morning for a three-month journey to Africa, and they both assume that it will end there. Fate has other plans, however, when Caress ends up pregnant, unemployed and homeless. (DAFINA, May, 352 pp., $6.99)
