REVIEW: The second installment of the Soulmates Series delves into the life of Zena, sister of Zola (SHE’S GOT SOUL). It’s deep, y’all. Zena is the sister who has always believed in the power of love, deep down in her soul. Zena is the sister who has the heart of a romantic, and even after it was stepped on and trashed, she is still a believer in love. Zena’ s story is nothing without her daughter, Zoe, and the man who captured her soul, Raphael Dupré of New Orleans. The New Orleans setting segments of this story capture the sultry and sensuous love that Zena and Raphael experience.

Who doesn’t want a love like Zena and Raphael? Their connection is off-the-chart Hot! Zena arrives in New Orleans for a work-related assignment, and Raphael is her driver while she is there. That’s how it starts out, but it becomes so much more. The storyline created by talented writer, Aja, is filled with revealing moments, romantic moments, and erotic episodes that define Zena and Raphael’s relationship. Their relationship is also defined by doubt and fear. It’s scary when you find the love of your life, and the life, as you know it, will change forever. It takes a reminder from Zena’s mother, Zora, about using her gift of the third eye. You’ll get that when you read the story.

Those “Women of Z” are something else. Zora, Zola, Zena, and Zoe characterize women that you know or have known. Kudos go to Aja for her in-depth characterization. The side characters, Raphael’s family members and others, are instrumental in helping to move the storyline along. The HEA is wonderful! At this point in the story, there is no doubt that Zena and Raphael, the Creole man, are soulmates. The last word, however, belongs to Zoe. Her story is next, and I look forward to reading it.

I love this story, and I highly recommend it for your reading pleasure.
DEEP IN MY SOUL is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I also recommend that you read the first story, SHE’S GOT SOUL, Zola and Khalil’s story. You can thank me later
