Stepping Up To The Plate by J.M Snyder
A truly amazing read. The unlikeliness of Stacy’s and Darian’s relationship was interesting to read about. While the characters themselves were a perfect match and really complimented each other, the idea that a highschool-drop out turn GED-go-getter and a carpenter-turn-Woodshop teacher getting together was a nice change of pace from the regular plot lines such as best friends to life partners; which is where I first thought this story would go. Stacy’s relationship with his best friends only added to the story. While it was hard to like jackass Lamar, I instantly fell in love with Ange.
Normally I’m all against cheating but what went on with Stacy and Ange I couldn’t bring myself to be disgusted about because honestly had Stacy not ended up with Darian, there would be no better choice than Ange for him.
I loved how Darian saw more than a high school drop out right from the beginning and made Stacy feel better about himself while doing everything he could to help him.
This story had a lot of twists and turns and was interesting to read.
A must read for anyone who loves complicated yet simple meant-to-be romances that will keep you interested.
