Places In My Heart is the story of Morgan Gray and Omar Drummond. We witness their connections, coming together and getting in and out of their way. Business keeps them from openly acting of their intense attractions and we get to see if they can get past their hindrances in tack.
Sheryl Lister penned a tale that kept one spellbound and looking for what’s next. I enjoyed their story and am looking forward to the next Gray adventure.
The first story in this anthology is Picture Perfect by L.A. Smith (which is my favorite) is the story of Quincy (Peanut) and Bethani Bee) and as it unfolded, I was glued to the pages and fully engaged in the details of these two as they grew up from 4th grade to adulthood and remain connected in one way or another. This was penned is the way that one anticipates, what’s next while delving into all the things and “conversations” that are occurring.
The second story, The Competition by Starr Noble is a detailed but short story of two people that meet at their children’s swim meet and take a chance with each other. Will the past interfere with them making a future together, it’s worth the read to find out.
The third story The Honeymooners by Krystol is an story is a story of a couple that ventures from their wedding through their honeymoon and in some fantasies as well. This one left me wondering of the thoughts of the writer. It was definitely thought provoking and tapped into various emotions for me.
The fourth story Torn in Two by Black Angle Publishers is a story of a powerful woman, Kirstin, that established her foot hold in the business world at a young age and built an empire in the process. During business dealings, she comes across Warren and is intrigued with the “man” to say the least. Read the this short and to the point story and watch what blossomed.
I give this anthology 4 stars and look forward to enjoying some of their others works. April 25, 2012
Very intriguing and interesting story….you have family, romance, thrill, drama and suspense. This book is centered around the Livingston family. There are twin brothers and one of their sons that run the family business that was established by their father. On top of this well established family business this family has a long, rich history that is a noted legacy for the men….fidelity and long marriages.
As you read, you are hurled into the lives of these people as individuals, couples, families and the Family while you are hanging on to every word. The brothers are Ace and Adam and the sons that work with the family business are Malcolm and Toussaint, the offspring of Adam. Ace is married to Diane and they have two offspring that are not involved is the family business. Adam is married to Candace and he co-chairs the business along side his brother with his sons as integral players in the business successes. and nephews. As the story unfolds we are wrapped up in the lives of the single brother, Toussaint, that has women falling all over him as an eligible bachelor and his brother the family man that finds himself unfulfilled and ready to stake his own spot in the business world where he is the success. As we progress through the book we witness their trials, tribulation, choices and the results of those choices with family always looming in the forefront.
Ms. Lovely did a great job expelling a story line that is engaging, exciting and an easy read. She tells us of the individual lives and the Family with fluidity and thoroughness. I am eagerly awaiting the next installation, Mind Your Own Business which comes out September 2011.
I give this book 5 stars….enjoy, I surely did! March 19, 2011
