Raynna’s father walked out on their family. Her mother started using drugs, leaving Raynna and her siblings to fend for themselves. Luckily for Raynna, higher education was her way out. At Duke University, she became close friends with Michelle, and once she graduated, she headed off to southern California to work at a physical therapy practice owned by Michelle’s uncle while completing her master’s.
Raynna hadn’t had much luck dating. Thanks to her father and first love, she has issues with trust. It didn’t help that the men she attempted to date were liars, cheaters and jerks.
Azmir Jacobs is a successful businessman that also has some underworld dealings. He’s at the end of his relationship with his longtime girlfriend and he hopes that their ending doesn’t affect the relationship he has with his mentor, Big D.
Raynna Brimm and Azmir Jacobs have already crossed paths. However, when they finally meet, it’s obvious that there is an attraction. While it takes a long and obvious path, I like that they slow walked into the getting to know you phase. Soon they are both looking forward to the time that they share.
LOVE LOST (LOVE’S IMPROBABLE POSSIBILITY) by Love Belvin was a difficult read. It dragged and the main character contradicted herself. Once Azmir’s character entered the story, the pace picked up, but the story was overly detailed and very repetitive. The author used really big words while also missing words or used the wrong words. There were many instances that I wished the author had stopped and focused. I don’t want to spoil things, but date rape, murder, breast cancer, a pregnancy, and an investigation are the interesting parts of the story but they got very little mentions.
I was hard pressed to finish this book as I had been reading it for some time. When I got to 91% I figured that the author was going to do a quick wrap up. Fooled me, because the book literally just stopped leaving everything up in the air. I was very disappointed as this book was already drawn out. It’s my hope that Belvin cuts down on unnecessary details and focuses on bringing the story to a close.
