A Chance Meeting…

Big sister, provider and…..for as long as she could remember Joy Simmons had only used those two words to describe herself and her less than exciting existence. She wanted more out her life. What she wouldn’t give for a man to make her heart race, but she didn’t have time for any of that until he came along.

…changes two lives!

Logan Scott never imaged when he went to the hospital for a gunshot wound he would meet her. A woman with dark soulful eyes who possessed a killer body that made him forget every other thought in his mind. He was going to do everything to stroke the intense attraction he felt between them.

Yet, it isn’t going to be as easy as he thought. Something big is standing in his way. However, he isn’t about to give up or let Joy go.

Sometimes love takes a form you don’t expect, but he’s just who you need. And sometimes that person comes from the wrong side of the tracks. Should you resist? Read Crossing the Railroad and make your own decision.

Marie Rochelle writes great interracial novellas. Her characters are real people you could meet on the street. Their problems are things you may be going through. Her love scenes are written in a tasteful manner that keeps the reader involved and titillated without giving away too much detail or getting risqué.

I liked the parallel storylines and how history can repeat itself. The characters had to make their own futures. Joy, the heroine, was hesitant to fall for Logan because of their differences. Their love story shows the reader than color is only one dimension of a person and shouldn’t make or break a love affair. I loved the dynamics of family relations on the blooming relationship between Joy and Logan. We all have that one family member who dislikes the choices we make from time to time.

As for the antagonists, they were very sneaky and kept the reader on his or her toes. You really had to work to keep track of who was really out to get who, yet it added to the dimension of the story.

Although the minor editing mistakes took away from the story, they weren’t enough to prevent the reader from enjoying the plot. I enjoyed the romance between two opposite people.

If you want a sinfully sexy story with interesting characters and a fun plot, then you want to read Crossing the Railroad. I give this novella 4 cherries.
