All of this reunion business has my mind thinking about how I used to be in high school, before I grew up, had bad relationships, and started paying bills. I’ll tell you who I was… I was fearless, true to myself, and went after everything I wanted with unwavering determination. While I am still true to myself, I’ve become hesitant and careful, and then it hit me – Irresistible Forces by Brenda Jackson.
Irresistible Forces was the first romantic novel I’ve read, and I was satisfied at every turn of the page. Like I mentioned in my Up in Smoke article, Taylor Steele is no ordinary woman. She is an intelligent Wealth and Asset Manager who wants nothing more than a baby, sans the husband!
Taylor is the epitome of fearless. I mean, how else can you describe a woman who proposes a “procreation vacation” to Dominic Saxon, a big time financial tycoon (She even hands him a brochure!)? She is nothing but true to herself when she lays her cards out on the table up front and tells Dominic that all she wants from him is a baby and not a relationship. Taylor doesn’t mind if he wants to be involved financially, but makes it crystal clear that she is more than capable of covering the entire financial load. And when Dominic takes her up on her procreation vacation offer, Taylor definitely goes after what she wants with intense passion and determination. The chapter where Dominic and Taylor go sailing together will forever be etched in my mind and still serves as a benchmark for my future romance reads.
