The Blurb
In Love With the Wrong Man
Sydney Williams has forgiven her fiancé, Den, more times than she can count. But his latest betrayal just days before their wedding is too big to ignore. Shocking her friends and family, she calls off the engagement. She walks out on Den . . . and into the arms of his brother, Morgan.

Known as a player, Morgan Smith has secretly spent years fighting his feelings for Sydney. When Den's latest dirty deed leaves Sydney devastated, Morgan can't stop himself from coming to her rescue. What begins as friendship quickly escalates into all-consuming passion. Despite their intense connection, Sydney would rather deny her desire than come between brothers. But as Morgan is determined to make Sydney his, Den won't give her up without a fight . . .

My Review
Reading this novel kind of reminded me of the hit sitcom Friends. Only with an African American flair added to it. Drama, comedy, heat, and just a little bit of “oh my goodness, he/she did not.”
Sydney is a remarkable woman. To have gone through what she had in her past (no spoilers) and have survived had me rooting for her happiness from the begging. Although at times she cried a little too much for me, I still wanted her to end up with the right man for her.

Aside from Morgan being hot, he’s sweet and a great friend to Sydney and the others. When Sydney is finally free of her ex-fiancĂ©, whatever had been simmering between them on a subconscious level got the chance to explode.

The drama of Sydney falling into the arms of her ex’s brother made things a little tricky. I kept wondering how things would work out without relationships being destroyed. The ending was perfect. Realistic and yet satisfying.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I give this novel five out five shot glass shaped chocolate bars.

About the author:
Born and raised in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor, Elle learned the importance of reading from her mother. It was also her mother who, later on in her life, gave Elle her first romance nove: Indigo by Beverly Jenkins. From that moment on, Elle became a fan of Ms. Jenkins for life and a lover of all things romance. An old journal she wrote back in college became her first book (which she still wants to publish one day).
