4 out of 5 books
Poor sexy millionaire actor Dominic Wolfe is feeling sorry for himself at his mansion in his beautiful homeland of Barbados. After an accident left him injured, Dominic is mad at the world. When his good friend and doctor sends him his newest physical therapist, things start to look a little brighter. Physical therapist Aaliyah Carrington has come to Barbados to help rehabilitate a person who her boss told her would be a challenge and to also help rehabilitate her own heart. She had no idea her reluctant patient was world famous, super sexy Dominic Wolfe. Once she got Dominic to agree to come to his sessions, she realized that more than one side of his body needed healing. Does this widowed nurse have enough healing power to mend both Dominic's heart and hers?
Wayne Jordan is an awesome author. He does such a good job of giving you the male perspective of a budding relationship. Touch My Heart is another great read by Jordan. There were a few times within the story that I was a little confused, but Jordan did a good job of pulling it all back together. The primary and secondary characters were well developed along with the plot. There is also a side story within Touch My Heart and it seamlessly flows with the primary storyline. This was a very good sequel to I'll Stand By You.

After serving time for a crime he did not commit, Don Juan Jackson is finally a free man. He wants to become a real father to his daughter Trinity but he needs to make some real money first. Don plans to return to the drug game until his friend Lex turns him on something less dangerous and more lucrative. Don and Lex soon make plenty of money in the world of white collar crime. But there is someone that's standing on the sidelines that's trying to take them out. Will Don and Lex be able to continue their criminal enterprise unscathed or will it all blow up in their faces?
White collar crime, murder, and dishonor is what you'll find in Pretty Boy Thugs by Rahiem Brooks. When you first start reading this book, you think that this will be another street thug getting out of prison to reclaim the streets type of story. But when you continue to read, you'll find out that this is not the case. Brooks does an excellent job of bringing us a crime thriller with a dash of street drama thrown in. The character development of Lex and Don makes readers want to almost root for them. There are a few minor editing issues but none that takes away from the story itself. This story runs at a pace so fast that you need to pay attention to who's doing what. There is a cliffhanger ending that just stops the story too abruptly. But the ending does create anticipation for what's next for Don and Lex. It makes you wonder if there is a sequel in the works. Pretty Boy Thugs is an entertaining, fast-paced read by Rahiem Brooks.
