Dr. Isoke Morehouse is stuck in Phoenix at an engineering
convention, courtesy of the firm she works for. The bad
food, sweltering heat, and horribly dressed, obnoxious
engineers are enough to challenge any southern woman with a
crumb of intelligence, so a genius like Isoke is dying to go
home to Atlanta. She’s willing to persevere for the sake of
her boss, Njroar “Roar” Valdason, the brains behind the
firm. Roar is one gorgeous package and as cool as the
Nordic climes from which he hails. Except when a situation
occurs involving Isoke, he loses all sense of reason.
Take two brilliant people, throw them in a volatile
situation with a boatload of chemistry, and then detonate.
What happens next is you’ve landed in another
take-no-prisoners narrative by mother-daughter writing team
Jeanie Johnson and Jayha Leigh. Veiled Passions
is set in the same universe as A Little Bit of Dis,
since Isoke is Karlo’s best friend, although the marketing
genius doesn’t make an appearance in this installment. The
explosive interaction between Isoke and Roar drags you in,
and the plot sits on a keg of dynamite surrounded by the
couple’s friends and colleagues who are all willing to light
the fuse. I’ll be honest and say not a lot happens in
these boy-meets-girl-and-tags-that-booty stories, yet a
picture paints a thousand words, or rather in this case, the
language does the flat screen HD impact meets Blue Ray
gleam. This is helpful for framing the wanton sex eruption
featuring Isoke and Roar.
The punch is all in the delivery, and the very intense and
imaginative way that these ladies bring it all home.
Reading any story by these authors is just pure
unadulterated fun. Most peeps aren’t willing to pass up
anything that remotely resembles a good time, so snatching
up a copy is an excellent way to chase away the late autumn
blues. I’m the first to admit that I’m hooked on Jeanie
Johnson and Jayha Leigh’s prose style and rambunctious
characters, and there’s no turning back from here on.
