This novel is the second in the Soulmates Dissipate series. This time the storyline spanned several years where we see Jada and Wellington living separate lives, Jada giving birth to Darius, him going to college, dropping out, becoming a womanizer and the drama continues. Throughout it all, Jada and Wellington are still pining for each other although they were married to other people.
After Jada’s mother died she decided to come clean about her feelings for Wellington and fessed up to Wellington that Darius wasn’t his son. Despite knowing this, Wellington still loved Jada and Darius as his son. In the end, Jada and Wellington remarried to the chagrin of scorned ex-lovers.
I totally get that sometimes when you find your soulmate you can go to the depths of the world to be with them but the message was a bit mangled in this novel. Overall, it wasn’t a bad read and I would give the next novel in the series a try.
My favorite lines:
“I hear congratulations are in order.”
The tone was sharp and rather cynical. Hopefully, Wellington wouldn’t lower the volume, because she could hear the person on the other end.
“You must have the wrong number,” Wellington responded.
“Oh, I never have the wrong number when it comes to you.”
Silence lingered; then Wellington said, “How did you get my new number? Look. Don’t ever call me again. I’m happily married now.” Wellington sat up on the edge of the bed and rubbed his head as his penis slumped over his balls. Wellington shook his head from side to side.
“Who is it?” Jada impatiently asked.
Wellington signed heavily, stared directly at Jada, and frowned. Jada took the phone.
“Hello. Who is this?’
“Enjoy the honeymoon while you can, because I never signed the divorce papers. Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, Melanie roared.
