REVIEW: THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE by author Deatri King-Bey features an interracial couple who meet under extraordinary circumstances proving that wishful thinking can become a reality when you least expect it.
Single mother, Bryanna Martin, is busy with her career and raising her five year old son. There is little time left for dating and if she’s ever going to find Mr. Right, he’s going to have to come looking for her. Imagine Bryanna’s surprise when a handsome stranger crashes her son’s birthday party. Alejandro Montenegro has one intention when he arrives to confront Bryanna but after meeting her his whole agenda changes. Instead of tearing her life apart, his new intention is becoming a permanent part of it. All Alejandro has to do now is ensure that Bryanna never discovers his true motives for tracking her down. Unfortunately, secrets rarely remain hidden and when Alejandro’s lie of omission is discovered, it could destroy the life he never thought he wanted but would do anything to keep.
The story goes right into the plot and there are many characters to keep track of but the author does a good job of transitioning between each one.
Bryanna is beautiful, brilliant and a very dedicated mother. The author does a great job of showcasing how smart she is but for some reason Bryanna didn’t see the obvious. Alejandro is from a prominent Mexican family and he’s entrusted with the family’s fortune. His actions are less than honest but his intentions are good. Alejandro’s family plays a pivotal role in the story and in particular Alejandro’s sister-in-law who provides enough villainy to make the plot more interesting. Alejandro’s brother, Seferino may seem like a pushover but he proves what he’s made of when he stands up to his meddling wife.
The story unfolds between Arizona and Mexico and it is relevant to the plot in showing how invested Alejandro is in his redefined mission to win’s Bryanna’s love. The dialogue is very spirited and enhances the story Alejandro and Bryanna’s exchanges are engaging but so others between Alejandro and his family and Bryanna and her family. In fact, several important revelations are made through dialogue between characters.
THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE has many characters with active roles and therefore requires a bit of concentration but overall it is an enjoyable read. There is one character in particular, Bryanna’s brother, Jarvis whom I would love to discover further about in a subsequent story. King-Bey is a prolific writer and has added another strong novel to her repertoire.
