Summary:

 

 

The truth has always haunted the lives of Kim Min Jae and Nam Nari. The baggage that was passed down to them from their parents clings to them like a shadow that can't be out ran. When they're placed on two different paths in life, they may face struggles alone, yet together they dream of the day they can be reunited.

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2

Oh wow, I hope they make it and his son comes back and kicks his ass.  The mom is ridiculous.  She has just caused more harm and shame to her daughter than anyone else.  No one had to know until she decided to march her holier than thou behind to that building and put on such a shameful display in front of a man who threw her daughter away like trash.  He is a despicable character and I can't wait for Manager Lee to also get his.  I hope to read more soon.  Are  you going to do any time jumps to move the story along as well?  I am curious about our two youngsters future.

Wow, I am eagerly anticipating the next chapter heck the rest of the book.  These two together will be a force of nature.  He not only has to defeat his father but his step-mother and sister.  Take them all down.

Yes, I want more!!  Can't wait till she see's Min again.  Has Min forgot about Nari?  I wonder also about his upbringing and if his friend can be trusted.



Author's Response:

Thanks for sticking around! Min and Nari's next meeting is just around the corner. Can't keep my babies away from each other for too long. They have the "swing on site" kind of relationship so it's going to be quite fun to see =)))

Summary:

Some people have a type and for Alana Harrison she did and she succeeded falling in love with him. But love is so much more than a type. Love is how that one person can make your heart skip a beat with a simple look - not because they fit your look.

So what happens when someone who is completely against the grain enters your life and messes up your entire look but finally makes your heartbeat?

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3

That is a tough one to answer?  On the one hand I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt and stay and talk about what I saw but then at the same time, if he slapping girl's behinds, twerking on his DJ equipment while I am there, it is challenging to think what he would do when I am not there and with what equipment.  This is especially a hard choice for Alana because she just found her fiance cheating.  I don't know.  It doesn't look good for Wesley.  He has 2 kids with a woman he says he can't even understand why he had sex with her the last time when they met, then to see him slapping assess.....how is that suppose to make her feel comfortable in beginning a relationship or pursuing anything with him.  I understand her concerns regarding reputation as well because in all honesty that is all that we have in our careers etc.

Can't wait to see what his reaction will be?  How is he going to handle that she literally walked out at the end of his set.  But yet again, he didn't have any clue with her being a lawyer and partner at her firm.  C'mon Wes, tell me you had some inkling this might not go over well otherwise I will have to give you a new nickname.  Instead of Diplo it will be Dunno such as I don't know nothing.

Title: Chapter 5: HIS HEART

Don't whoop his ass too bad.  Get a couple hits in after he attempts to hit you.  Call the police first so they don't run and can get caught.  Ya know how jail feels about child molestors.  Remember Izzy doesn't need her father in jail.

Title: Chapter 9: PROTECT

The fact that Regina admitted that information on the stand shows just how mentally stumped she is.  She doesn't see it as being so wrong.  I'm sorry honey but you are not the example of a black woman that Izzy needs.  She needs better examples and Luc is going to have to explain that what her mom did is completely wrong, morally and legally and she has to wait some time before seeing her mom.  She can write a journal for her mother to share in the future, so she has an outlet for missing her mom.  I hope they don't start a relationship right now.  I think she needs time to grieve her aunt and I'm not sure if she should still be Izzy's counselor if they start dating.  This could be confusing for Izzy as well because of her mom.  Excellent story and I hope Regina is found guilty.

This is a 10.  I have no idea why it took me this long to start reading this.  I am loving it and oh my goodness Reuben has so many evil people around him.  No one but his mother is wishing him success.  Hillary needs to grow a backbone.  I hope she didn't get too much from Reuben iPad and he wins the bid from that ass Dylan.  I bet Dylan only went after Hillary because she was with Reuben.  Now trying to go after Amelle.  Can I say Amelle is one of my favorite female leads.  She is awesome right now and is momma bear trying to play matchmaker.  Hmmm.

Reviewer: lajack1 Signed starstarstarstarstar

Title: Chapter 20: Chapter 20

I can't wait until Amelle recognizes her feelings for Reuben, whew I can just see her standing next to Reuben while her family and his mother are behind them and the others are knocked down all around them as the dust settles.  I think with his mother and her brothers he will find out what it means to be apart of a loving family unit who will have his back and not let petty jealousy interfere with success.  Gerrie is ridiculous.  He never gave her any indication that he was into her which makes it so hard to figure out how she created this fairytale.  I could understand her obsession more if he had kissed her, slept with her or something to indicate that he had a semblance of "more than friends" vibe but NOTHING...she's a reincarnated Flew over the cuckoo's nest for sure.  I really hope he shows up with someone tonight to meet with Gerrie.  Here's to hoping Reuben starts to show some common sense  and he is faking us all out with the clueless act *cheers*.

Please let them figure out Bruce is being drugged so they can bring that witch up on charges.  She is absolutely ridiculous.  She went after Bruce as he was grieving his wife.  To not feed Alex, he had to be an infant, maybe 6-12mos old so that was not a lot of time between his first wife dying and him marrying her.  Dang Alex can't never finish and it looks like Pete has more steel in him than we suspected.  Always the quiet ones.

Title: Chapter 2: Requests

I know he is dying, but that is wrong for Nicolas to ask for something like this.  He will be gone and won't be around to witness the potential destruction this can cause.  Yes, that is very selfish of him.  Go and find someone who can love him like he wants versus tearing his "brother's" marriage apart.  I'm sorry, Olivia, the answer should have been an automatically no.  Would you want Emery sexing up another woman even if she is dying.  Then hell, how do we know when he is going to actually past and will one night lead to more.  Nic, get some counseling and go do the other things on your bucket list and just remove this one.  Sorry about you dying but I still have to live with the decision.

Title: Chapter 3: We All Make Choices

Emery find someone else.  You don't need someone to make you feel guilty for your honest feelings.  He should say, while you are sleeping with Nick, I will be sleeping with someone else as well.  What's good for the gander should be good for the goose.  I don't care he's dying.  Sorry, not sorry.  You don't follow the vows, neither will I.  Matter of fact let's call this an open marriage because that is the path you have chosen to take us on.  If she felt love for Nicholas she should have dated him.  At this point, they have both lied to Emery.

The past never leaves. It's all in how you deal with it that determines how well you move on . . .

 

Vera Cooke thought she'd moved on, thought she'd buried her past well enough to get married and have a son and enjoy the life she'd been wanting.

 

But the past has a way of creeping back up. For Vera, it erupts disturbingly, violently, forcing truths to be revealed and a demanding need for revenge too hard to ignore.

Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11

Hmm, I think Charlie is becoming clearer.  I think the most impulsive act she ever did was leave Alex.  I feel like once she left them she didn't think she was worthy of coming back.  Everything for Charlie would have to be aligned just right for her to make an appearance in their lives.  I also believe it is forgotten that she was an orphan in foster care and was tossed around til her last foster care parents took her in and placed conditions on their approval and to stay with them.  Outside of Alex's family she has no one.  Why would she believe they would care about her when she left their son.  She knows what she did was wrong and she is unsure of her place at this time in this family that she hurt.  I don't struggle with mental illness but everyone I've heard state it isn't a rational, logical condition.  She has to live with the consequences of her actions. Sometimes the best action for a kid is to not be around a parent that is incapable of giving them what they need.  We see it everyday saying this person doesn't need to be a parent.  Do I absolve Charlie for her actions, Hell nawl, but I think I understand better now.  

As for Vanessa.  She walked into that last conversation.  She pushed and pushed and it backfired on her.  She should have known something when he didn't file for divorce citing abandonment.  She should not have confronted Charlie because that was not her place nor should this have happened at a child's birthday party.  Her issues are with Alex and Alex alone.  He broke up with you, move on, figure out a way.  In all honesty, no matter what he said, she would be the one hurt.  There was no way out of it.  Alex is torn between a new love and an old one who broke him.  I wouldn't want to be in his position either.

overall, ready for more.



Author's Response:

Hi Lajack1,

How are things? I hope you're enjoying this new story of mine and your review is great. You've touched on Charlie's life in care which does play an important role in why she did what she did (this is coming in the next chapter) and I understand your stance on not giving her a full pass on leaving her family, but you can understand why she may have. Your point about mental illness is unfortunately true; it isn't rational and the decisions made when a person is suffering from such an illness don't always make sense to people who aren't in their shoes. I like your assessment of Alec, being torn between an old and new love, and Vanessa does get the short end of the stick in this situation.

As always, thanks for reading and your review.

K.

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 2

I believe this story will have you asking those age old questions....Is it really love when you are that young or just hormones?  Is he settling for Nicole because she was there and a good person?  Does Nicole deserve to have someone settle for her or fight for her like Dominic is willing to do?  It seems that Layla still doesn't have any idea of her self-worth and that she deserves love and happiness despite her horrific past.  Sometimes it's yourself that stands in your own way.  In this chapter I can't decide.  In this chapter, Dom's thoughts came across as more physical than emotional to me.  I feel like Stone has a better connection with her now.  Before I root for Dom/Layla pairing over Stone/Layla I need to see some substance to their encounters.  Plus thinking, Dom is a CEO, her background would be scrutinized and picked apart by the company he keeps, Layla doesn't have that mental fortitude at the moment to endure that.  Nicole may be the better match.  Part of me wishes I came late to the party and could read like 15 chapters in a row *wink*

Lajcack1, 

Your questions are certainly valid! It would be so easy to make Nicole the villian, but often times it's not so cut and dry. From what we know so far, Nicole was there for Dom, but Dom from his actions had truly never given up on Layla. He continued down the path he thought most likely to see her. Going to the same school, going pro, and even becoming more than that. 

The good stories always make you wish you have more to read. I'll do my best to keep them coming!
