Ms. James wrote a smoking hot story within these pages. I’m pretty certain I saw steam coming off the pages as I was reading it. The author developed believable characters that everyone can relate to and she presented them in such a fashion that I found myself hoping that they both could work things out between them to make something more permanent out of their situation. Ms. James is a magnificent storyteller and she doesn’t disappoint her readers with the storylines and characters she creates.
