By Chantilly White
Mia’s fallen for some real losers along the way. But because she has a three month dating rule, she’s never given them her virginity. But her best friend, Derrick has other plans. He has feelings for Mia and will do anything to get her to realize that he’s the only one for her.
Mia is a beautiful woman who doesn’t see her own beauty. She’s been hurt by the last guy she dated who said she wasn’t good enough. She views her body as the enemy, not as desireable. This is so real. I can’t tell you how many times I complain about my own body. I don’t see myself as sexy and I know many women like me.
Derrick isn’t the smoothest talker when it comes to Mia. He doesn’t share his feelings because he’s afraid he’ll push her away. This leads to some of the misunderstandings between them, but it also helps Mia see what he’s really like.
Each of the characters are real people with flaws and insecurities. I loved how Ms. White was able to portray people that I could relate to. The sensual build up in this story is amazing. As Derrick sets out to win Mia’s heart, the heat gets higher and higher. I don’t know how she stood it. I’d have thrown myself at him long before that! But the actual event was worth the wait.
The secondary characters of Jeff and Allison were fun too and provide different comparisons for Mia and Derrick. They are a fearsome foursome and one I’d love to be a part of. Too bad I can’t just jump into this book!
