Since childhood, Jasmine Ashford had a twisted perception of love. After watching her father look for love in the streets, while her mother looked for love at the bottom of the bottle, she vowed never to fall victim of love’s cruel ways. That is until she befriends, Jamaal.
Jamaal Davis gave his heart to one woman, and she left him without looking back. After years apart, she comes back with hopes of rekindling an old flame; the only problem is that his heart belongs to someone else, his best friend, Jasmine.
Their mutual disdain for love and relationships was the foundation of their friendship. When Jamaal’s notices his platonic feelings for Jasmine growing into more he has a hard time ignoring them. Jasmine, on the other hand, has a hard time accepting the sudden shift in their friendship.
What will it take for Jasmine to see that Jamaal was made to love her?
This book covers the story of Jasmine and Jamaal and boy is it a story. I feel like everybody knows at least one person who is essentially the Grinch when it comes to love. Like straight F love and everything, it stands for. What was interesting to me in this novel was the fact that both the main characters were essentially the Grinch and they bonded by their pure disgust of love. Throughout the book, you see how their relationship shifts and they tap dance on the line of more than friends. Jasmine worked my nerves okay. I just wanted her to get it together. Jamaal was apprehensive about perusing more but it’s something about a man and the effort he puts forth that speaks volumes. Listen, Jasmine !!! There are women who can get a carton of oodles and noodles when the sick. Jamaal hoped on a plane you hear me A PLANE!! Any man that bends backward for you as just a friend, would defiantly move mountains for you as your man. After other people presented their interested in both Jamaal and Jasmine I was beginning to lose hope but Sheesh they finally got it together. They were meant for each other honestly and everyone could see it but them. Jamaal’s dynamic with his family was another soft spot. I Love a man that loves his mother and Jamaal finally was able to mend an important relationship and I’m glad for that. Overall Jasmine and Jamaal were just too damn cute. They’re dynamic match with Kameron (Jamaal’s brother) and Iesha (Jasmines Best friend) gave me straight vibes. This book is another Great read By D.Rose and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us. To purchase Cherie Amour I have linked the place to find it, in the cover photo of this review. Till next time
