Book Review on Strumming My Pain by B. Love



B. Love has become the Ambassador of Black Romance novels for me. The more books I read by her, the more I fall in love with her work. This book was a really quick and enjoyable read that kept me intrigued and entertained.


In this story we are introduced to Elise. When her childhood love is murdered right before her eyes she is forced to move to a new state and start a new life. Then enters Izeah, a man that is looking for love, but doesn't want it to be forced. When these two characters meet you can literally feel the love emanating off of the pages. "She could see the royalty in his features-like Tupac. And Nipsey Hussle."


Because of Elise's traumatic ending to her last relationship she is a little leery about letting Izeah in. Her soul needed healing and cleansing, little did she know he would be just what the doctor ordered. "She'd dated all sorts of men-corporate suit wearers, dope boys in baggy jeans and Jordans, preppy pretty boys in slacks and loafers... but Izeah... Izeah was in a league of his own."


The ending of this story warms my heart and makes me all tingly inside. I will always be a cheerleader for black love. "It was like... hearing you on that guitar and being in that moment with you... you started strumming my pain. Helping me heal. I've loved you ever since."
