In St. Patty’s Baby by Sienna Mynx I got to revisit Tia and Melvin Reed, who first captivated me in Funny Valentine. There is something about Melvin’s character that is so raw, so gritty and yet pure at the same time. Having been raised in a predominantly black community Melvin adopts the lingua and he does so very well. His love for Tia is so all consuming it hurts and it heals all at the same time. I believe Tia loves Melvin with the same level of passion but he’s definitely more demonstrative of his raw emotion for her. Tia is a strong headed woman; so strong sometimes she overshadows Melvin. These two work on a symbiotic level and it’s no surprise neither had a serious relationship prior to meeting because they were essentially waiting for each other to truly begin their lives. Their passion in and out of bed is scorching hot and they burn up the sheets or just about anywhere they can get their loving on. Another keeper by Sienna Mynx and I must add that this author has mastered the art of creating characters readers truly connect with.

Tia Jackson Reed and Melvin are newly weds and expectant parents and as an interracial couple, Tia feels it is her duty to share Melvin’s cultural holidays. St. Patrick’s Day is coming and Tia is determined to make it special by taking him to his old hangout spot. Melvin tries to tell Tia he is fine celebrating the day with just her. Melvin knows he married a very strong woman and as a strong man himself, she’s just the woman he needs. This is the one time Melvin wishes she’d listen and back off. As the event draws near Melvin worries that revisiting his past will expose Tia to a side of his life he buried with his brother whom he lost to street violence. It is finally St. Patty’s Day and while the family enjoys the day, the night becomes a nightmare for Tia. When she is attacked by Melvin’s old nemesis, Tia finally understands why Melvin is not anxious to be in his old world again and would rather build a life and new memories untainted by his troubled past.
