    1. One word to describe this story: FANFREAKINGTASTIC!I have had book boyfriends in my time, but never have I actually fallen in love with a fictional character. I mean, holy shit! Trevor Carmichael is the prototype!If you’ve never read the Friends to Lovers anthology, featuring Blind Expectations, then this will be new to you. If you have read the anthology, then this is the expanded, “life after” version. Either way, you need to read this story! This is real life situations told in a fictio [...]

    2. Jacinta Howard just keeps getting better and better. I think with this book she has solidified her place as one of my top three favorite writers of AA romance. With Trevor and Leah, she captures perfectly the lives of young Black creatives living in one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the country for that demographic. Their voices are authentic, their concerns are real, and the conflicts they face in their relationships never feel contrived just for the sake of creating drama to move [...]

    3. Good ReadThere are a few things I like about the author, the stories she writes are always well written in my opinion. She has the ability to capture your attention and capture your emotions in the story right from the outset. The other thing I like which I will call it the authors signature style is the use of nicknames in the stories she writes. Blind Expectations definitely deals with some challenging issues. It's a good story, very nicely developed. The only thing I could have done without i [...]

    4. APB Perspective Review:Four authors got together and wrote a book of Novellas with a tag line written in each story " Because My Heart Said So.

Trevor The music writer and Leah the hip hop artist decide that they have more than friendship , the chemistry between these two is undeniable , I got re [...]

    5. Great Full Length Novel Blind Expectations is the full length novel from the friend to lovers collection. I had to read Jacinta's story first because I fell in love with Trevor during that novella. Part I of this novel is actually the novella that was featured in Because My Heart Said So. I was pleased that this was included because I did not have to go back to the original novel to read this. Part II starts months after Part I ends and deals with married life between Trevor and Leah. Trevor thi [...]

    9. High Expectations I had very high expectations after reading the novella this summer. And my did she deliver! Ms. Howard delivered a solid story that allowed readers to relive the relationship between Trevor and Leah. Leah was a tough nut to crack for Trevor. Because of her upbringing and her constant need to protect her heart; Leah was the small prickly thorn in Trevor's side. Trevor deserved an award for his tenacity to hang on to the roller coaster ride named Leah Liftoff, and having the pass [...]

    10. Soul Deep!I have only ever connected with one other literary couple the way I connected with Trevor and Leah. Jacinta Howard, made me root for them. I cried with them. I could see myself in them. This novel is written not with purple prose but the stark reality of relationships. Jacinta Howard writes each and every word and it is palpable.

    11. Trevor and Leah story was heartfelti really enjoyed this book. Leah worked my nerves a lot in this book and was so glad when she got it together. A story.

Though her first, I would have never guess [...]

    13. Seriously enjoyed this book. Absolutely loved Trevor and Leah, which I found shocking. Usually I prefer one or the other. The perfect example of opposites attract. There were a few points I didn't enjoy. One being their lack of communication, something I'm sure the majority of us can't handle. They had some major issues I felt were left unsolved. I was hoping for some sort of dialogue about it, but it was all about I love you. Which is great, but when there are so many other factors going agains [...]

    14. These two!Loved Part 1 of this book, and the love fest continued in Part 2. I was a little surprised that Leah and Trevor got married so quickly, although I have no idea why. I thought the author did a great job of realistically portraying the issues faced by young, struggling couples. I loved how much Trevor loved and took care of Leah in the novella. But he worked my nerves a little in this one. I couldn't help but feel like he put Leah in a very awkward position regarding the Brandon situatio [...]

    16. CloudedI understood that there was supposed to be blind expectations in the book. But somehow I felt the confrontations when finally approached and dialogue fell short. I felt that the H was jealous, and hypocritical in his wants and needs. ***some spoilers*** He would get super angry about things that never happened and her past. So when she lied about apart of her past he's understandably upset but it makes sense why she lied because he never handled his issue with jealousy. He had lunch with [...]

    17. Am I the only person who thinks Jacinta's pic makes her look like Alicia Keys Okay nevermind. Anywhooo I love Jacinta's book and this one is fabulous. Leah and Trevor decide to take their friendship to the next stratosphere and Lord these two are out of this world with their madness and insecurities and issues. I love their thick, rich love story. One filled with bumps, bruises and nail bighting moments. This is one of those things you have to experience for yourself. Leah had the bad habit of p [...]
