I love this story...I'm glad someone voted to revive it among the book recommendations for the month...such a stellar effort from Ms Jax...it's fun to read the start of Diya's journey...dinner alone on Valentines Day does seem a drag but I admire her courage...Reviewer: jahchannah Signed [Report This]

My previous review failed to do justice to the quality work that is you....your focus on hav8nv an actual plot that requires character development, interaction, drama, comedy and even angst make you a master storyteller imo. .I come back to your stories again and again because you get me hooked, like totally invested...when I first read this one, I totally hoped hard for a sequel...you craft beautiful romance where I can feel the characters falling in love...and sex is hardly the impetus that brings lovers together...it is typically a show of emotion that cements the relationship that you have crafted...with so many authors focusing on sex as the tool to bring.a couple together, it's rare to see the true creative genious that is you, Me Jax...Reviewer: jahchannah Signed [Report This]

Agh! I have been reading the sequel and I noticed I skipped over this one! So worth the read and so lovely. Gah! I wish I could find a love like this. How amazing.
Thanks Ren! So glad you enjoyed reading Diya and Brandon's prelude to love : )Reviewer: Ren Signed [Report This]

A small thing Englishmen aren't brown. They are white. Black men in the UK consider themselves British.
In my experience, Black people in the UK consider themselves their ancestral country of origin (i.e. Nigerian, Ghanaian, etc.), but I know better than to believe that to be universal. Both are moot points since the story is being told by an American Black woman passively referring to her brother-in-law (in a grammatically correct manner being that he is a native of England), not a Black man from the UK discussing what he or other Black people from the region prefer to be called.Reviewer: Anonymous Anonymous [Report This]

I didn't realize that was it. I need more. I live in Houston and the hurricane season is approaching. I need her to find bachlor #3 and find out how many times can you recycle the water and should I stored it in a glass or plastic container. I wanted to know more about Brandon. It can't be over What are you doing to me? Typical JJ....driving me crazy.... and just when this last little patch of hair on my head was starting to grow
LOL!!! You and Bachelor No. 3. His knowledge could definitely come in handy around here. You know these people be ready to pull a switch blade over a bottle of Evian the second there's even a twitch of something in The Gulf.
If Brandon and Diya give me something decent to work with, I will happily put fingers to keyboard and post. In the meantime, you can grow your snatch patch back. ; )
Thanks for the reivew and the laugh, VeMo!!! Love it!Reviewer: VeMo Anonymous [Report This]

Why is this a short story?!?!? Oh my heck...why????? I want to know everything about him, and them, and her families reaction, and their life together! Everything! I love this story so much! You are a gem!
Aw, thanks GreenRoots!!! I don't have anything else brewing for Diya and Brandon at the moment. But as soon as my imagination delivers, I'll be sure to share. Thanks again for the awesome review!Reviewer: GreenRoots Signed [Report This]

😍😍😍😍🙆🏾🙋🏾 this girl is me! At the beginning of the story, I swear I'm being described. Aside from dating black men. Ugh can't the story go on??
It can if my imagination would cooperate. Right now, it's sitting in the corner with its arms crossed and a pout on its face saying no. We'll see if that changes. But I'm glad you found a kindred spirit in Diya. Thanks for reviewing, PetitteBelle!Reviewer: PetitteBelle Signed [Report This]

The hits keep on coming. I'm in love with this story. You're very talented. I can't wait to read about Diya and Brandon's journey.
Thanks Azzure2020! Sadly, Diya and Brandon's journey is on pause until my brain give me something to work with. When it does, I'll be happy to share. Thanks again!Reviewer: azzure2020 Anonymous [Report This]

Girl, you had me dying laughing. Bachelor #3 was too much and her reaction when he told her about how he recycles water was so funny. I would have done the same thing. Glad he shared that little tidbit before the goodnight kiss. I know I'm going to really enjoy this story also. Did I ever tell you that you are a really good writer. I feel guilty sometimes reading your stories for free. Trust me, if I saw your name on a published book I would buy it without any hesitation
Amen on the pre-goodnight kiss reveal. I'm happy to hear you enjoy my little tale and appreciation the wonderful compliment. Thanks VeMo!!!Reviewer: VeMo Anonymous [Report This]

I made the mistake of reading this chapter while eating water-boiled fish atop rice and green beans and promptly almost choked when I read this gem:
"Exhibit A sat lodged in his mouth. Though the closest I’d ever come to lessons in BDSM was reading the first two pages of the literary tragedy that is Fifty Shades of Grey, I was pretty sure the bright red ball gag belonged in my mouth."
I howled. I'll have to finish eating and return to the story. Now, I might choke trying to shovel the food in. hee
Lol! Sorry for the spillage. Thanks BellaChica!

this story really is Beyond words. Your writing is so fabulous, that while reading, I could feel the attraction Diya and Brandon had for each other through the screen. YOU ARE ABSOMUTELY FANTASTIC!!! As much as I would love a Rich story, it would be beyond amazing if you continued this, it's just too perfect not to explore!
Thanks Chelah!!! So happy you enjoyed this. Right now, I don't have any good ideas to go on with these two, but the minute something comes to me I'll put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). : )Reviewer: Chelah Anonymous [Report This]
