The BlurbSome secrets bind you...
Tessa Obum and her best friend, Anuli, are linked by a dark secret that could destroy them if it ever comes to light. Men are just the means to an end and society shuns women like her. But she's determined to live on her terms and own her future. Until an encounter with the intense Peter has her questioning her choices.
Some challenges can break you...
Peter Oranye has never had a challenge he couldn't conquer. Except the death that claimed the only woman he loved. He's been unable to get close to another woman since and his life is focused on growing his business empire. Until Tessa, a sexy bombshell of a woman tumbles into him one night and he's ready to break his abstinence streak.
Getting involved with a woman who won’t let go of her BFF is wrought with dangers, especially when someone else wants to destroy them. When their secrets come to light, will any of them be worthy of the love they crave?
It’s been a while since I read book 2 in the challenge series, Engaged. It was well worth the wait to get my hands on Worthy. Ms. Taye took this story in a direction I hadn’t expected (and I liked it). I have no idea why I was surprised, Ms. Taye is known for placing her characters in rather risqué situations.
I was initially concerned about Tessa and Peter’s gaping social status. Peter was a self-made man from a highly respectable family while Tessa, let’s just say she’s had a very difficult life where she had to, and continues to, struggle to reach the level she’s achieved. I could really empathize with Tessa doing what she had to do to survive. She was such a sweet woman despite the harshness of her life.
Peter shocked the heck out of me, and that’s all I’ll say about that.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and already have the 4th in the series, Captive, waiting for me on my Kindle.
I give this book five out of five, um…let’s just leave it at round, shaped chocolate bars.
I purchased my copy from Amazon.
