I really enjoyed this book. I initially checked it out of my local library, but after reading it I purchased my own copy! It is just that good.

Sarita is my favorite character of all books that I've read. She was not materialistic nor was she intimidated by Mykal or his wealth.

Everything is romantic, believable and unpredictable. Sarita made Mykal love her by being just who she is. No pretence.

I can't recommend this book enough. It's worth buying. I'm not into reading books over and over again - but this one is worth it! I've read it 3 times and never get bored with the storyline.

This was my second Beverly Jenkins book and it was hot hot hot, I've read it like many times now, lost count after 3. The heat between Mykal and Sarita was unbelievable and you could feel it from reading the book, felt it was quite short and didn't want it to end. I'll be looking forward to reading Walter and Shiley's story too. Keep up the good work Beverly!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ***Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf!!!*** 6 Feb. 2008
By L. D. Brown - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Man I wish I read this trilogy in order. Anyway I enjoyed this novel alot although the storyline didn't have the fast-paced, edge of your seat excitement that "Dawn" had. Here's another woman that's strong, independent and full of class and here's a man that's arrogant, bossy, kinda full of himself..and they make a dynamite couple. There were two incidents in the story that made laugh out loud: the part where Mykal threw Sarita over his shoulder while she was kicking and screaming and smacked her on the behind all while the members of NIA watched, then further along in the story Mykal took Sarita shopping at an upscale mall for lingerie but she wanted to go to Sears instead. The secondary characters were interesting and fun and at the end of the book where Mykal's grandmother makes an appearance was endearing. Well, two super fine (half) brothers down (Mykal & Saint) one more to go (Drake).

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding 25 April 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
As again, Beverly Jenkins has done it again. I started reading this on a Saturday morning around 11am was unable to put it dowm. I finally completed it around 10:30pm. I was disappointed that I was at the end. The characters were very believable and I was able to visualize everything, I hurt, laughed and cried.
She continues to satisfy her readers. I have everything that she has written, and anticipate the release of "The Edge Of Dawn" , I have already purchase a copy thru . I look forward to the experience again ! Of being transported , to another place.
Lastly, thank you for mentally romancing me, I feel soo go after reading your novels. It transports me to another place and lets me keep hoping that there is true love out there.

Initially I thought I was going to be disappointed because this wasn't a historical romance but I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book was. I should have know to always expect an excellent story from Beverly.
I also loved the way she made the hero and heroine in this novel the descendants of heroes and heroines of her previous novels. I can't wait for her next book.

Once again Beverly Jenkins has written an excellent book...I am a big fan of her historical novels and did not know whether I would like her contemporary writing, but she did not let me down! Ms. Jenkins is truly an outstanding author, I love her characters and Mykal Chandler was no exception. I can't wait for her next book.

The Edge of Midnight

Amazon Rating: 5

Title: A Deal with the Devil
Beverly Jenkins takes a break from historical romance novels to show her versatility with a modern suspense romance in The Edge of Midnight. She does not disappoint in providing fun characters in Sarita Grayson and Mykal Chandler. The story tackles the effects of poverty and drugs in the inner city and one very determined young lady to make a difference in her neighborhood.
Poor as a church mouse, Sarita Grayson is the director of the community center located on the lower eastside of Detroit. When it looks as if she will lose the center, she takes on a dangerous assignment given to her by a small time drug dealer. Extremely handsome and rich, Mykal Chandler is the handsome brother of the Mayor of Detroit. He is an architect by trade, but his nighttime activities are more dangerous. While out on their respective secret missions Sarita and Mykal have their first explosive encounter. Their second meeting, arranged by Sarita's friend and Mykal's half brother Saint, is a life changing encounter. After accepting his proposition, Mykal gives Sarita the opportunity to see herself as a beautiful woman and awakens a passion in her that she did not know she possessed.
The characters in Ms Jenkins' novel are fun. Their actions are genuine and the conversations very real. Ms Jenkins has a way of incorporating conflict resolution and problem solving into the story without making the female character appear weak and cowardly. If you have never read a romance by Beverly Jenkins, then this is a good one to start. However, I would recommend getting your hands on every historical romance novel she has written; you will not be disappointed.
