Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312964889, Mass Market Paperback)Readers seeking something out of the ordinary need look no further than Margaret Johnson-Hodge's interracial romance, The Real Deal. Personnel manager Samone Lewis is still reeling from the break-up of a long-term relationship with Max Scutter--the love of her life. When she interviews Jon Everette, a typical California boy, she has no idea that their alliance will soon progress beyond simple co-worker status. Samone fights even meeting Jon for lunch--after all, what could they possibly have in common? But Jon persists and Samone is soon won over by his kindness, charm, and quick wit.
The road to love is rarely smooth, and Jon and Samone's journey is no exception--it's probably even a bit bumpier than most. As much as she enjoys Jon's company she's reluctant to give her heart to him, fearing further emotional involvement and her family's reaction to her dating a white man. But when Jon mentions he is seeing someone else Samone realizes how much she really wants him in her life no matter what anyone else thinks. Sexy, funny, and frank, The Real Deal explores not only the intricacies of an interracial relationship but also details the struggle of a sensitive, vulnerable woman desperately seeking love. All women, regardless of color, will identify with Samone's struggle to recover from her difficult breakup with Max and her reluctance to give her heart yet again. Johnson-Hodge has written a profound first novel, creating characters that ring with authenticity and interest. This is a very literate, compelling read and highly recommended. --Maudeen Wachsmith
