77. Because of You

by Rochelle Alers

This is the first book in the new Wainwright Legacy series by one of my favorite romance authors.  What’s interesting is that the Wainwright family are a wealthy Manhattan family who happen to be White.  Not a big deal, except that this author and publishing imprint are read by primarily African-American readers.  We’ll see where this leads.

Jordan Wainwright is a lawyer who has already caused a scene by leaving the family firm to work with his friend practicing law in Harlem – much to the dismay of his grandfather. He is introduced to Aziza Fleming, a lawyer herself, at a New Year’s Eve party thrown by his cousin and agrees to represent her harassment case against her former employer.  They are drawn to each other immediately but the secrets that each one holds onto threaten to keep them apart.

  1. I enjoyed this read. I believe that (based on how story-lines are often changed) that the “other” people will all fall in love with the “other”. And that will keep the Waingwright series alive.

    I always read your reviews…it helps with my library? 3000 and adding… 🙂
