Vanessa Jared's Got a Man by LaQuette
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Vanessa Jared’s Got a Man by LaQuette is a book about a woman who finds herself again two years after a divorce. After all this time, she finds herself helping a sexy sheriff prevent his little sister from marrying her ex husband. As Vanessa finds herself stuck in this small town, she finds herself growing closer to the sheriff. Is she ready to go down that road with another man?
I will say that if you are looking to read a book with a compelling plot and super dynamic characters, this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a book with lots of tension and good spicy scenes, then this is the book for you!
I didn't necessarily find this set up a total turn off. It was a good palate cleanser between some heavier books I had been reading at the time. And the plot was engaging enough; I thought the set up between the two leads was quite creative. But I didn’t stick around for the plot, if you know what I mean.
But books like this have their place too. In a world where Black women’s sexuality is heavily policed, it is a freeing experience to have a Black woman writing about sexuality and desire in open ways, free of judgment. And while I love Black love, this interracial relationship between an Asian man and a Black woman, two of the statistically most undesirable demographics in America, creates a world where people like them can be seen as irresistible.
Overall, I gave the story 3 stars (the spice carried the team). Perfect for fans of smut!
