Product Description

At thirty-eight, Brooklyn Douglas has her hands full raising a teenage son and running her own business. What she doesn't need is everybody and their mother trying to hook her up with a "good man." The last "good man" Brooklyn was with turned into a no-good husband, who left her for another woman. Can't she just have a mind-blowing love affair with no strings attached? Somebody like the handsome, broad-shouldered brother at the bar.…

As a successful businessman, Isaiah Washington is used to going after what he wants, and what he wants is Brooklyn. Too bad the lady isn't extending any invitations. But when fate lands Isaiah in Atlanta for the summer, he's ready to do whatever it takes—from slow kisses to showing up when it counts—in order to melt her heart. Because when it comes to real love, there's no such thing as a perfect man. But there is such a thing as the right one…

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic case of why I love Adrianne Byrd! 12 Sep 2005
By BMAR - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the last few books of hers that I have picked up, I've come to the conclusion that an Adrianne Byrd novel is sure winner.

In "Comfort of a man", Byrd doesn't disappoint. Brooklyn Douglas is reeling from a bitter divorce when her girlfriends suggest a harmless romp in the sack as just what she needs. When Brooklyn encounters Isaiah Washington in a bar during an annual girlfriend's weekend away in New York, she decides on the spur of the moment to take her girlfriends advice and proceeds to have the best night of her life with Isaiah. Despite Isaiah's desire to keep in touch and see where the road takes them, Brooklyn walks away and fully expects never to see Isaiah again.

A few weeks later, however, Brooklyn reencounters Isaiah and the sparks are reunited. In the ensuing drama, Brooklyn and Isaiah embark upon a cat and mouse game of pursuit with Isaiah chasing a reluctant Brooklyn. Author Adrianne Byrd crafts a fine relationship tale that leaves you anxiously waiting for her next work. This was a SUPERB novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Me? Recommend a romance? Say it ain't so... 7 Jun 2004

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Adrianne Byrd, Comfort of a Man (Arabesque, 2003)
I'm not a big reader of romances. (In fact, this will be only my fourth romance review since I started documenting such things in 1999.) Adrianne Byrd is a regular on a forum I used to frequent, so when she announced the publication of this one, I figured I should check it out. But feel free to take all that follows with a grain of salt; for all I know, this is identical to other romances in the same vein. All I know is, it ain't like any romance I've read before. Or much of anything else I've read before, for that matter.
Comfort of a Man, despite being burdened with something of a cumbersome title, is one heck of a good ride. It's smart, funny, incisive, well-paced. Oh, yeah, and sexy. Sexy as all get-out. The story revolves around Brooklyn Douglas, a real-estate broker from Atlanta, and Isaiah Washington, a sales and marketing rep from Austin. They meet during a trip to New York (Isaiah's for business, Brooklyn's for pleasure) and, through the various machinations of Brooklyn's friends and an optimistic bartender, end up having a one-night stand. (The process of getting from meeting to bed could have been lifted from a Bunuel film. Byrd knows how to keep the tension high by throwing in all sorts of ludicrous, but realistic, delays.) Due to (imagine big roll of thunder here) a series of coincidences, the two find themselves thrown together again the next summer, and from there, well, you know the drill. If it doesn't have a lot of getting together, pushing away, and ultimately a happy ending, it ain't a romance, is it?
Where Byrd differs from the Steels, Cartlands, Blakes, et al. Of the world is in two very important places: her characters and her realism. The characters to be found in Comfort of a Man are not your usual cardboard cutouts, but real, multidimensional characters that a reader can identify with, instead of the paper constructs one has to stretch to even empathize with. Also, while the coincidences require suspension of disbelief (oh, my, do they ever), the situations Brooklyn and Isaiah find themselves in once the coincidences are past are realistic. Uncomfortably so, at times, for someone who's been there, done that, and bought the (ripped!) shirt.
The book's flaws are few, and the majority of them can probably be attributed to an editorial staff who weren't quite diligent enough. A few cliches here and there, some typos and grammatical flaws. Nothing, though, that really stops the book's flow. A few of the minor characters border on the cardboard (especially Brooklyn's son, Jaleel), but they only get a few pages of screen time. (In horror novels, they'd be the folks walking around with "KILL ME" signs.)
I really never thought I would so unapologetically recommend... a romance novel. But there it is. *** ½

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best Adrianne Byrd Has to Offer 8 Aug 2003
By Simon Loves Books - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best books I have read. With this book Adrianne Byrd is easily up there with Rochelle Alers and Brenda Jackson with the romance genre. I don't always love Adrianne Byrd, but this one was definitely HOT. The story involves a 40 year old divorcee with a 16 year old son and an ex-husband (who cheated with and is now dating his ex-wife's best friend) and a very handsome single professional looking for love. The story moved at such a fast pace that I read the book in a day. I like my love scenes tasteful but HOT all the same! And Adrianne did not disappoint. Well worth the $$$ I paid for it.

This book was a good read. Brooklyn's approach was very daring. I love dares! Many women can relate to this story! Ladies...don't tell your friends everything about your relationship with your man...this book is the perfect example of why not to and it also shows hope and that good things may come from a bad situation!
