Love Unfeigned by Nadine C. Keels
Love to the chords of a classic jazz band, spanned over more than a decade…
Lorraine: plucky and competitive.
Isaiah: impish, with a smile that gleams in more ways than one.
From the time the two first square off for a fierce wall ball battle as children, Lorraine and Isaiah can’t help knowing each other, but neither can they avoid passions and misfortunes lining their path to young adulthood. When the breakup of Isaiah’s family disrupts the haven he’s shared with Lorraine, their natural relationship is eventually threatened by jealousy, abandonment, and a life-altering trauma too grave to…forget. As one year follows another, and another, what might it take to reunite this divided man and woman in love: love undeniably real and unbounded by time?
“Everything didn’t have to turn out perfect. I just wanted you there.”
This book took me by surprise! I'm not sure what I was expecting, I just know I wasn't expecting the twist in it! I loved Love Unfeigned!
I decided to pick up Love Unfeigned last Friday because my family and I had to go on an overnight trip that was a few hours drive away. I figured I would be able to finish it during the drive and, since it's just a novella and not a deep novel, not worry about the fact that I would probably have a few distractions while reading. I was a little wrong...
I was wrong because Love Unfeigned had me so drawn in that any and all distractions frustrated me so bad! I was able to finish it on the drive but it wasn't just a "simple little novella." It was just as good, if not better, than most 300+ page novels I have read.
There was sweet love, a touch of mystery, and drama all wrapped up in one novella. I very highly recommend this book! Definitely 4 (or more) stars!
