COME TO ME by LaVerne Thompson is a contemporary interracial love story set on two coasts. Jasmine Sandler is a building manager and supervises her properties from her home in
Baron successfully convinces Jasmine to allow him to come to San Diego to see her. They decide not to tell each other what they look like and go from their instinct. They recognized each other instantly! The fact that she is African American and he is Caucasian causes him no trouble as he kisses her passionately the first time they meet. Jasmine is not bothered by their differences but she’s concerned with how in tune they are with each other to know each other sight unseen. It is all happening too fast for Jasmine! She is feeling too much, too fast for Baron. Her feelings are definitely reciprocated and Baron wants her to move to the east coast with him. He just wants her to trust him, pack up everything and move to D.C. to live with him. Can she do it? Should she do it? Why should she be the only one to sacrifice and he gives up nothing?
COME TO ME was an awesome read. I enjoyed the idea of falling in love with someone sight unseen. Baron and Jasmine connected on an intellectual and spiritual level. Not seeing each other only intensified feelings that developed for each other. Neither was surprised or bothered by the difference in their races. They hardly acknowledged it at all. That is how love should be…colorblind! You cannot help who you fall in love with. The author handled this relationship with sensitivity and dexterity. Great concept and I cannot wait to read more stories by LaVerne Thompson.
