This is book # 5 in the Mangrove Stories series. This book can be read as standalone novel. For full understanding of characters and series, I recommend reading the books in the series in order.
Roark and Essien have been circling each other for some time. The whole town has followed their antics. It is getting to where even Essien's daughter cannot take it anymore.
Essien has decided enough is enough. Can he love again? Is this where he goes all in? Well, after Roark has a scare - they find out for certain. They also find out who their friends are.
Short and sweet, it is a reminder of true love and all that it can conquer. This book has a timeless feel to it. Such swift heat and happiness inside! I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
