NOT FADE AWAY is a short novella that takes up shortly after Tom and Prophet return from helping Prophet’s old CO and friend. The infamous couch, the ire and manifestation of Tom’s jealousy before he got together with Prophet, is now part of their story. Even though this is only a novella, I felt like it was so much longer. The story just flowed because she brought the characters from the past to the present so easily that I felt like I was with them through the journey. Hold on to your bootstraps because Ms. Jakes will take you for an erotic ride for the last few pages. For readers who are sensitive to sensual play, you may want to refrain but this is one book that may stretch your boundaries. NOT FADE AWAY is a nice treat to have while waiting for book four.
