“Maybe friendship is all that’s realistic for us right now.”
With those words, Zora ended their long-distance relationship, shattering Deuce’s vision of a life with the only woman he’s ever loved. But after months of silence, he thought he was over it. He’d moved on, hadn’t he? And as far as he knew, she might have done the same. Now Zora is back from California, and he’s thrown into an immediate tailspin. Nothing’s changed.
She’s the one, the only, his rhyme, and his reason …
But this ain’t no college romance.
There are serious, grown-folks’ obstacles standing in the way, and the other woman in his life isn’t even the half of it.
And sometimes growing up might mean moving on …
Over a few short summer weeks, Deuce and Zora will have to decide whether the great love they shared in the past, is enough of a foundation to build a future.
Rhyme & Reason by Nia Forrester is available now!
I read this over the weekend and it is definitely a five-star read. I liked Deuce and Zora in Young, Rich & Black but they solidified their place in my heart with Rhyme & Reason.
The blurb is spot on and this definitely isn’t a college romance. They’ve evolved and they’re grown with grown-up problems and emotions that threaten to knock them off of their feet on more than one occasion. Amidst the peaks and valleys they must navigate, their love is the one thing they are sure of. There are learning curves but these two prove just how adaptable they are.
I also loved that we got an update on Asha and Kal from Snowflake.
