aspiring journalist struggling to get his foot in the door (who happens to be Black, and has a Black-sounding name) agrees to pretend he's still together with his ex (obscenely rich liquor brand magnate who also happens to be Black) for the sake of the ex's demanding parents, in exchange for some career connections, even though the ex had dumped him without explanation and he wasn't really over it yet.

I read to page 56 but wasn't really in the mood for a romance (maybe another time).

Can recommend this to others though if they're looking for a fun love/hate romance--each character (and their friends) have their own things going on, but the main focus definitely seemed to be the tension between the two men. ( )

I believe this is Kosoko Jackson's first novel. Rather it is or isn't...what he has written is a charming, sweet, love story between two guys from such far-apart economical classes they wouldn't be able to see the shore if they tried...but in spite of this there was always love. I didn't really understand the reasoning for the breakup, except that it gave backbone for the story that took place to build on. Mr. Jackson takes the reader on one fantastic journey following these two men through the "on again, off again" relationship and the decisions that they had to make that would affect them for the remainder of their lives. I loved both Kian and Hudson. I hated Hudson's sister and what Kian went through. If this is a first novel for Kosoko Jackson...he has hit the nail on the head with this one. It's going to a tough act for him to follow...but hey, Mr. jackson...bring it on! ( )
