Without You (Quicksand Book 2)
Without You by Delaney Diamond is the second novella in the Quicksand series. The theme is second chance love, which is a theme I always enjoy.
Infidelity and distrust led to Rapper Terrence “T-Murder” Burrell and Charisse Burrell’s divorce five years ago. Over the past two years, the pair has gotten into a positive routine of co-parenting their three kids. This fictional story seems to come right out of the headlines. Overall, the friendship is genuine and the love is still there. It’s apparent that Terrence wants Charisse back.
This is a quick read that is easy to get into. Charisse is a good Mom who focuses on her family. I like how Ms. Diamond highlights Terrence as a dedicated father and provider as well. He just couldn’t get the relationship part right while they were married, in the midst of being a high profile celebrity.
Ms. Diamond definitely captures the passion between Terrence and Charisse, which is what we’ve come to expect in her books. Just when I thought I had this second chance love story figured out, Ms. Diamond added a twist that I didn’t see coming. This kept me engaged. Overall, this is a very good read by Ms. Diamond and I recommend it.
