Title: Mr. Right Now
Author: Monica Jackson
Publisher: Dafina Books
Release Date: December 5th, 2005

My Rating:

The next release from national bestselling author Monica Jackson, Mr. Right Now, isn't set for release until December but you can read about it here now. This book kept me turning the page from page one and onward. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.

Mr. Right Now follows a group of three friends as they look for their Mr. Right. Our main heroine, Luby Jones, has her world turned upside down when she meets the new guy, Jake Kosevo, that just moved into her building. She wants him and she wants him bad. Then again so does everyone else in the building. Just why is that hmm?

Problem here is he's white and she's not. She doesn't date white guys, so she tries to set him up with her friend. That doesn't work out all that well. Something keeps pulling Luby closer and closer to this man. Something undeniable. She ends up in his bed, and this is where things get interesting.

From that point on we're taking on a paranormal ride along side Luby. A ride where life and death are on the line. Luby has no idea when she met Jake in the elevator that day she would be set on this journey not only looking for the man to be hers for the rest of her life, but also a journey of self discovery where her family past plays a part.

Not only do we have Luby's life and loves to deal with, but that of her two closest friends. One being unhappily married, and another going from bad relationship to bad relationship. The resolution to these problems had me laughing as well.

This book is full of love and humor with some hot sex thrown in. I found myself unable to put this book down. The paranormal aspect came in a bit later, but there were twists in the turns in this part of the story that kept me guessing. I wanted to know what happened. By the end, we had the desired result of a happily ever after, but the road down the path to get there was definitely a rocky one.

I definitely recommend picking up this book when it hits store shelves, or you can always pre-order now through Amazon.
