    He Can Comfort Me AnytimeAdrianne Byrd has yet to disappoint me with her writing skills I enjoyed this novel so much I read it in 12 a daytalk about a page turner The chemistry between Isaiah and Brooklyn was sexy steamy and very romantic And talk about a good man he had a good job could cook took dance lessons was a good listener brought her a tiara and knew how to throw down in the bedroom what could she want I couldn't believe she foolishly let him get away I was glad she was able to overcome 'her' obstacles and finally realize that nothing is impossible especially when you have love

    Comfort of a ManThis was a well written story about Brooklyn and Isaiah who met at a hotel in NY at the bar after hours of conversation over drinks they went to the room and had sex Months later they reconnected in Atlanta when he went to visit his sick mom and began a courtship Brooklyn has a seventeen year old son a ex husband the ex's girl friend who was her best friend and other interesting characters that make this a very very good read

    Comfort of a Man is a re release by Adrianne Byrd originally published in 2003 Brooklyn Douglas is a recently divorced mother of a teenage son who is attempting to put her live back together when she and her girlfriends decided to take a trip to the Big Apple for some rest and relaxation Brooklyn is taking a break from dealing with the opposite sex much to the dislike of her friends Brooklyn on the other hand is recovering from some pretty traumatic emotionally battle scars because of the way her ex husband left enter ex best friend stage right but there’s nothing like a little peer pressure to make you take the leap of faith you didn’t know you needed right?Enter Isaiah Washington work a holic extraordinaire From the moment he set eyes on Brooklyn he knew she had taking over the top spot in his “to be had” list Dusting off his cheesy one liners he makes a play for Brooklyn that leads them to one incredible night in NYC Then she disappears Brooklyn is not ready for the feelings Isaiah stirs so she cuts and runs Without her last name Isaiah can’t even begin to find her Fate had other plans Several months after their first encounter an Atlanta highway brings them back together BAMWhile Brooklyn is dealing with a surly teenager are teenagers ever NOT surly? Isaiah is dealing with his own personal issues that may work to keep these two apart Ah but again fate is having none of that These two were meant to be and no matter how much they fought the feelings or what situations life threw at them and trust me they were in a batting cage love prevailed sighAlthough I enjoyed Comfort of a Man I would have liked to have seen some interaction between Isaiah and Brooklyn’s son When blending a family that is a pretty strong dynamic The story lacked any scenes between the two I also would have liked to learn the reason why Brooklyn’s ex best friend did what she did I sort of missed the development of that part of the storyAll in all if you haven’t read this one Comfort of a Man is worth the read despite the two missing dynamics of the story I’m going to give it 35 out of 5 pencils Nice job Ms Byrd

    Very good I highly recommend it She wants a little comfortHe wants a lot This was a little twist on the theme of reluctant hero which I found stimulating she's getting over a bad divorce which was done believably and a teenage son who is doing that sullen adolescent thing While on an annual girl's weekend in NYC they dare her to have a one night stand saying she's turning into a bitter prudeShe doesn't intend to until she runs into a sexy stranger whose easy to talk to Their one night stand is awesome The morning after she's the one to slip away and he is left hurt and bewilderedLater he comes to Atlanta where she lives to be with his sick mother They run into each other Okay that was a little formulaic the happy coincident But it was worked in smoothly and with a little humor The story continues with him realizing he's falling in love and trying to get her to do so at least to admit to deeper feelings for him; she won't even admit it to herself the resolution was handled skillfully by the author; I was totally riveted Couldn't put it down The writing and editing were up to Harleuin's solid standards Ms Byrd is a winner
