LET ME LOVE YOU - Alexandria House
REVIEWER: Brenda Larnell| RATING: A
REVIEW: The premier story, LET ME LOVE YOU, of the latest series by talented Alexandria House is a winner. We are introduced to the eldest McClain brother, Everett “Big South” McClain, world famous rapper and Jo Lena Walker, assistant/intern to a well-known LA custom jeweler. Everett and Jo’s romance journey involves crazy ex’s, family drama, and unabashed sex. It’s a captivating story.
When Jo becomes involved with Big South, the rapper, she is thrust into a world of red carpet appearances, aggressive paparazzi, body guards, haters, private jets and Everett’s unhinged ex-wife. If that’s not enough, Jo has her own ex-husband to deal with who coincidently happens to be a rapper and is equally unhinged. The story rapidly becomes a page-turner as we follow Everett and Jo’s determination to stay together while they maneuver their way through past misfortunes, and present vexations. Kudos to Alexandria House for a solid contemporary storyline that offers a crew of eclectic unforgettable characters.
From sweet two-year old, Natalie, Jo’s daughter, her loyal BFF Bridgette, her lunatic ex-husband Sid, to Everett’s conniving ex-wife, Esther, the minor characters stand out and hold pivotal roles in helping to move the storyline along. We are introduced to the all-embracing McClain family members that include Big South’s brothers. Just from their appearance in this book, I look forward to reading their stories. One thing for sure, you will find yourself rooting for Everett and Jo. Everett is an Alpha male figure who handles his business and captures your heart. Without a doubt, Jo is his perfect mate with her “take no prisoners” attitude. The chemistry between them is off-the-chain. Emotionally, I was a wreck! I went from tearing up, to fighting mad, to smiling and blushing as I read. What a great ride!
I loved this contemporary romance story. Alexandria House is fast becoming one of my favorite writers who consistently pens engaging stories that draws the reader in. Allow me to issue a disclaimer: There is a fair amount of profanity used in this book. Nevertheless, it does not take away from the story. If you are looking for an entertaining read, I recommend you pick up a copy of LET ME LOVE YOU. You will not be sorry.
