The colors of love comes in several shades for Queen Thomas, and has been prevalent on her canvas of life as she continues to paint by the numbers. Successful beyond measure, but flawed to a degree where bright hues tend to fade a bit, happiness should be much more than an illusion. Queen is a young African American defense attorney passionately advocating justice for her brown-skinned clients, despite being subjected by black and blue bruises from her ex-boyfriend. Then there are the shades of gray that matters most when trying to balance the memorable scales of a loving relationship with a father that raised her as a single parent. Along with that are the dark clouds of uncertainty accentuating the need to suppress the void of missing the touches that only a mother can manifest. Is a successful but committed relationship so hard to fathom where integrity and faithfulness is not compromised? The whispers get louder with promises of primal screams as the colors take on a different tint as the plot thickens. Enter Quincy Hughes, a handsome doctor easy on the eyes but with an underlying intrigue that allows curiosity to kill much more than the cat. Quincy is on a mission. He relentlessly pursues her despite his mystique, and forces Queen to question the taboo concept of accepted love vs. forbidden fruit; and whether there’s a future in it for her. Is she ready to tackle the relevancy of this different persuasion? And what about her ex-lover — will he settle for second best and allow Queen to pursue matters of the heart, albeit with someone else? Sensual and brimming with sexuality, this heart-wrenching drama is groundbreaking fiction. A Whisper To a Scream is a sexy, moving and riveting tale that will pull you deep into an unforgettable erotic, socially-conscious, and emotionally-charged ride.
I really and truly enjoyed this story. I mean, wow. The characters Quincy and Queen really swept me away with the undying love they had for one another. Although Queen was very hesitant to start a relationship with Quincy due to their difference in color, his persistence won her over. The only down side to this book was that Queen was always too hesitant to put her abusive ex-boyfriend behind bars because of the already too many incarcerated black males. However, I felt like this was always an excuse to not handle the difficult situation. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud her for her reasoning, but I felt like she wasn’t trying to protect herself enough. Besides that, I never wanted to put the book down! 5 stars all the way! I’m hoping for a part 2! Signed, a new fan.
