TWO SIDES OF EVERY STORY
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
It can be difficult to read a story that has characters whose actions you disagree with but understand. It's incomprehensible when you not only disagree with the actions, you can't find the logic behind them. Angela is so full of venom, hatred and prejudice that she's inconceivable as a true love interest, much less a character to empathize with. Rafe's actions, while less hostile, are equally unfathomable, and no good reasons are given for his behavior. Combined, they are a barrier between the reader and any potentially redeeming aspects of this book.
Angela Reed hates cops, blaming them for her brother's incarceration. She believes he was framed and searches to prove his innocence. Rafe Remeris bears the brunt of her hatred as they repeatedly cross paths and lock horns. Ultimately, they realize they need to work together if they're going to find out and prove what really happened to Angela's brother. To do that, they need to get both sides of the story -- and to take a chance on trusting each other. (Genesis/Indigo Love Spectrum, May, 299 pp., $9.95)
