THE QUESTION by Zena Wynn
Description: When Crystal asks her widowed best friend, Gail to be a surrogate for her and her husband, Rashid, using one of Gail’s eggs, Gail reluctantly agrees. But when Gail starts dating a handsome divorce lawyer named Greg after her successful insemination, what starts off as a favor soon turns into a complicated love story filled with passion and drama.
The Good: Oh, I am mad as Ms. Wynn. I had important things to do the weekend I read this book, but I couldn’t it put it down. This story is such a page-turner, and I was deeply engaged until the end, which is quite a feat for a book that’s quite a bit longer than your usual IR romance. This was a highly, highly romantic read with unique situations that had me on the edge of my seat. I can’t tell you how many times I yelled out loud because of something that had happened in this book. Ms. Wynn gets her characters on a deeply psychological level that you don’t see often. And I just wish that Americans were about the telenovelas, because this would make a fantastic one.
The Bad: Rashid’s background is never fully explained. We’re told briefly that he is American-born and of Middle-Eastern descent, but we never get to meet his parents. I would have loved a few more cultural notes for this character. Also, the character of Greg, though loveable, came off as a bit convenient at a few points in the story.
The Naughty: Erotic. Toys. Spanking. Breast milk.
Editing issues: Typos (I counted 11). A few instances of clunky grammar. Interior dialogue not italicized in places.
