|Rawsistaz.com released one of my favorite author’s book review: If You Were My Man by Francis Ray.
I became a fan of hers shortly after my Donna Hill addiction and I’ve already put this in my Amazon TBR que very excited by her new release.

Rafael Dunlap is a successful hostage negotiator with the Myrtle Beach police department. He has the reputation of being a lady’s man; however, he’s yet to meet one he’s willing to give his heart to. While on an outing at a local seafood restaurant with coworkers, he has the pleasure of meeting the owner, Natalyia Fontaine. He insists on asking her out on a date; when she turns him down he’s determined to get her to change her mind. In his determination, he learns lessons in love he never knew existed.
Natalyia Fontaine is the owner of Fontaine’s, a seafood restaurant that is a favorite to residents of Myrtle Beach. She inherited the restaurant years earlier after her husband passed away. Her number one priority always is and will be to ensure the restaurant’s success. While making her usual nightly rounds with patrons she meets Rafael Dunlap who proceeds to ask her out. When she refuses, the last thing she expects is his persistence. She soon realizes that resisting his charm is more difficult than she first imagined and thatshe too is in for lessons in love she never knew existed.
Natalyia and Rafael’s story is told with passion, elegance and grace by Ms. Ray. I enjoyed the updates on other characters from the series and the introduction of a couple new characters. I hope Ms. Ray will introduce us to another fascinating series as she concludes the Invincible Women’s series with IF I WERE YOUR MAN.
