It was ironic. Poetic Justice, maybe? Whatever the case, Rakeem Owens escaped the streets, and at his retirement party, his home was raided, and he was arrested for a crime he didn't commit. After spending seven years in prison, he is given the opportunity of early release with two major stipulations - probation and volunteer work to give back to the community the Judge believed he took so much from. With no hesitation, Rakeem agrees, but when he finds out that he'll be serving under Maliah Dixon… jail seems to be a better option.
It was karma. Fate, maybe? Whatever the case, Maliah Dixon is thrilled when she finds out Rakeem will be volunteering with her organization. She started it with her best friend before he went to jail, and it has been her main priority ever since.
Rakeem's heart has been closed and guarded for years, and it will take more than a familiar pretty face and nice frame to soften him toward any woman. But Maliah is determined to not only fill him with her love but be cleansed in the overflow. There is one problem with both water and love, though. Both were soft enough to cleanse and give life yet hard enough to drown and destroy anyone or anything who stand in their way.
Til I Overflow is a nice, quick read about two people who are obviously the love of each other’s lives finding their way back to each other in the way that they are meant to be.
Maliah and Rakeem’s relationship is a bit complicated, though their inescapable love is apparent to both them and everyone around them. They initially broke up when Rakeem chose to get his businesses off of the ground so that he can be a better provider. He’s very much still in love with her but Maliah isn’t a fan of second chances and that plays a role in the ‘I love you so much but we’ll just remain friends’ kind of game that they played.
There are some nice twists and turns in this novella that will keep you intrigued. Their own complicated feelings and outside sources cause them to be apart for quite some time but soon they realize that they need the overflow that is only apparent in each other.
