This is my third book by Ms. Kent and I love the subjects she writes about. She shows the messy but wonderful side of love in a way that leaves the reader breathless. I can’t say much about the story without spoilers.
I love pop culture references and we get them through the story, lending the reality of Simon and Willows world. Saffron creates two wonderful people you fall in love with and root for throughout the entire story. Willow is lovable and right away readers can identify with her. Let’s not forget the hot doctor too. The subject matter is deep and brings light to mental illness in way that the reader has not only sympathy but compassion for Willow. This is a must read. ~Leigh
Manik by Amo Jones is a super dark book about love, life and family. Beatrice is a lost soul, losing her parents at an early age and being raised by her grandparents. When she loses what is left of her family, she is absolutely lost and moves from town to town, settling on New Orleans. And that is where she meets Manik, a very well known rapper with ties to the Russian Mob. But across the room, their eyes meet and there is a connection. Events are put in place and many things lead them together.
Things I love:
The writing is absolutely perfect and the chemistry is out of this world between Manik and Beatrice. There is a lot of suspense that keeps the readers turning the page like crazy. I couldn’t get enough. And the side characters—I loved. If you are in for a good read, that is very dark (how I love a lot my books) then this is the book for you.
