I’m not much into romance novels at all but this one was actually a good page turner. Each page made me more ready for the next. Kudos to the author! And I loved the New Orleans flavor.   ~ Gregory Prescott, Freelance Photographer

“The characters in this book pull you in from the beginning; they are believable and feel like people I know. I was so impressed with this story. My favorite character of course is Benny, how can you resist the charm and sincerity set against a steamy New Orleans back drop. This book makes beautiful music, a definite MUST READ!”  ~ Nef Jones, Poet
