With a deep sigh of disappointment, she walked out the bedroom of her tiny two bedroom apartment and into the extra bedroom across the hall to get her shoes from the closet in there. As she open the closet door and pulled out her black pumps, she looked around the room. It had once been a beautiful guest room, but for the past two year, it was an elaborate home gym. It housed almost every home workout system she’d seen advertise on the television.
She looked around the room again thinking that maybe this weekend she would get rid of some of this stuff. None of it was producing the effect she wanted. Instead of helping her get slim and trim, this stuff only turned all the flab into muscle. She would end up looking like a big muscle-bound man instead of the sexy model that she was aiming for. That was not what she wanted.
The clock in the hall chimed signaling that it was time for her to leave. She groaned loudly. She still hadn’t combed her hair. There was not much time to do anything elaborate to it, so she just scooped her shoulder length ebony locks up into a tight ponytail and wrapped a silky red scarf around the base of it. It was very 80ish, but it would have to do. She added a little eyeliner to her hazel eyes and a little red tinted gloss to her full lips and headed to the door. She had a lot to do today.

Awesome it pulled me in for a fun ride! Romantic, heartfelt with a twist at the end. So many unexpected events kept the story going. I'd read it again, and I just might do that. Nice job Author Aretha.

"Love for Kenya" by Glenda Lee Davis
Aretha Renia’s portrayal of a plus size woman trying to overcome the insecurities instilled in her at an early age is superb in Love For Kenya. Her characters are exceptionally convincing and delightful. I would suggest this five star novel to anyone interested in a good romance novel. She takes you into the inner most working of the mind of an insecure but successful business woman to reveal the never ending battle of several of today’s women.
