Review: Zane's The Other Side of the Pillow: A Novel
Zane's The Other Side of the Pillow: A Novel by Zane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jemistry Daniels is the poster child for an angry black woman. Although she is independent and highly successful, she is tired of being used and abused by men so she adapts the mentality: Friends with Benefits. If a man can do it, so can a woman…right??! Wrong, we as woman at some point have to break down those walls as it is not in our DNA to act like that without feeling some type of way.
Jemistry was doing well with that philosophy until she meets divorced Vascular Surgeon, Tevin Harris who is just the man to knock down those walls. Dr. Harris has had his own share of heartache in a different form. He knows how to fix his patients but can he fix Jemistry’s heart? Will she allow him in? Is there such a thing as being happy after being in a mentally and physically draining relationship many times before?
The author takes us on the journey of perseverance and love. The Other Side of the Pillow shows us with time and patience, anything is possible. Sometimes when we are at our most vulnerable stage in life, we find that is then, we have also reached our breaking point.
The story has a great flow and the characters are real and raw. At one time or another, we all have experienced what Jemistry and/or Tevin has gone through. I like how Zane has a quote at the beginning of each chapter. The quotes correspond with that chapter’s story. If you are a fan of Zane’s writings, you will not be disappointed as this is a five star read.
