Her Fantasy And His Reality. . . 

Classically trained actress Imani Gilliam is gifted, beautiful—and broke. Facing eviction, her only hope of staying afloat is to do the reality TV show, "Let's Get Married." The show pairs up single strangers, and viewers vote for who should be united in wedded bliss. Imani is only looking to be united with a paycheck—until she locks eyes with a fellow contestant. . . 

Are About To Create A Buzz. . . 

Dr. Raymond Thomas is determined to keep his struggling free clinic running—even if it means appearing on "Let's Get Married." He can't imagine finding love on TV—but when he spots Imani, he definitely finds lust. And their attraction isn't lost on the producers. But as the cameras start focusing on them, Raymond wonders if he's just a tool in Imani's career. Only time—and a life-changing choice—will tell. . . (Goodreads)
At first I struggled to get into this story. The first 20 pages or so were very instructive: laying down the why's and the who's of the story and their motivations. Once I got past that and the story moved to Imani and Ray in Hawaii…I was sold. This is a wonderfully sweet story about two people who were truly meant for each other. They bring out the best in the other and despite their small bumps in the road, they fall in love. 

In some way, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. I expected some kind of conflict, infidelity, or crazed ex to appear…and none of that happened. Instead, we meet Raymond, a doctor who specializes in treating poor and under privileged people of Harlem. To compliment Ray and his good looks, charm and quick wit, we get Imani. A tall, curvy, Julliard trained actress who is as real as they come. And girl…she is great. She isn't shallow or superficial, but a true friend to Dana and an honest, devoted and true lover for Ray. I was so happy for them, their HEA and their respective successes in life. Enjoy!
