Tara Chevrestt, writing as Sonia Hightower, packed a powerful punch in this tale of adultery and absolution. The characters were real. The anguish they were going through for their lustful thoughts was also very real. I was drawn into their world from the first page and couldn’t stop reading.
Ms. Chevrestt writes about real life issues. Adultery being one of many. It happens. This book shows the ramifications of sinning. How adultery, or thoughts of committing it, can have serious repercussions. I won’t reveal any spoilers here, but the surprise twist at the end had me in tears.
Thank you, Tara/Sonia,for such an interesting read. Well done!
Follow the confessions of Juan and Maria as they fall prey to lust at first sight. Can they stop themselves before it’s too late, or will they become victims of their own sinful urges?
A new neighbor sends Juan running to confession to rid himself of the lustful thoughts he experiences. Each confession becomes more erotic, more sinful than the last. Can Juan stop himself, or will he give in to the desire that threatens his very faith?
The man across the street causes Maria to question her own morals. When she seeks out a priest for confession, she weaves a tale of exotic kisses and stolen moments. How can Maria find sanctuary in her prayers when her body demands she finds solace in her neighbor’s arms?
Crystal is an enlisted mechanic with a tragic past. Grant is an officer and a pilot with a broken heart. When faced with a difficult decision, will Crystal choose wisely or lose the best thing that ever happened to her?
The love between them burns hot, but their relationship won’t stay fueled if they can’t beat the obstacles that stand in their way. Besides breaking the fraternization rules, Grant and Crystal have the difference of race between them…but can they prove to the rest of the world, and to each other, that love is color blind?
Afterburn is about overcoming one’s past, not judging others, learning to forgive, and what it’s like to be a woman in a “man’s world.”
