    I liked it. I liked Tamara as the heroine. She was plus sized and owned it. The entire story wasn't spent on her feeling insecure about her size, and Russell needing to make her feel better. Although I enjoyed the story overall, I felt like Russell's possessiveness was a bit too much too soon. He reminded me of one of those the alpha heroes you read about in a werewolf/ shifter novel with him thinking mine all the time. Where did that come from after just meeting each other through mutual friends? At one point, while making love, he even bites Tamara, huh? Some parts were a bit much for me, and had me rolling my eyes, but not so much that I wouldn't read more novels by this author. This was the first novel I've read by Lena Matthews, and I plan on reading more soon.

    I enjoyed this book because it had a plus sized heroine and the book kept the characters real without being completely urban. Somewhat rushed, especially towards the end, but a good story none the less. I am in the middle of a vampire series and this is a very good break from that.

    I loved the heroine, Tamara, right from page one. You see, all-the-authors-that-can't-produce-a-half-decent-herione-if-their-life-depended-on-it, this is how it's done! Woot woot!

    “No, later.” Tamara lowered her voice to a mock whisper. “When the stinky boys aren’t around.”
    “Oh, that’s easy.” Charlotte glanced up at her husband and batted her eyes. “Honey, poof. Be gone.” Heeeheee! Hee. ._.

    I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said I rolled on the bed with laughter while reading. You should've seen me, I was acting like a looney.

    I liked the idea that it wasn't all just about getting laid, that the hero wanted something more than a roll in the hay. Valerie and Russel both grew on me and I was glad to see they got their happily ever after. I was even ok with the fact that nobody died. I can usually appreciate a good death. Or two. :P

    Decent 4**** cause I'm in a really good mood this evening.

    And to bring a little cheesiness into your life:
    “I’m not perfect, but I’m perfect for you, and the sooner you realize it, the better we both will be.” Russel is quite a guy, huh? I'd sure as heck have him. Especially since he likes bigger girls, who the last time I cheched, I still was one... xD

    I'll have to agree with the other reviewer, “The Blacker the Berry” is definitely a HIGHLY erotic, yet emotionally charged romantic treat. Tamara and Russell are a PERFECT combination and their antics throughout kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. The witty dialogue and sexually charged banter makes the story lively and at times LOL funny. There was NEVER a dull moment. Looking forward to reading more of Mrs. Matthews work.

    Holy hilarity cliched sexy goodness! I don't know how or why I picked up this book, but once I saw the title, I couldn't NOT read it. It delivered the goods - boy meets girl, they have sexy time and somewhere in between that's not clearly marked, they fall in love.

    He's a cowboy and she's a brat. And of course, there's a little blond woman in the wings trying to complicate things. LMFAO.

    I wouldn't exactly recommend this book, but I enjoyed it.

    This was very much a by the numbers romance -- guy and girl meet, they have a moment of conflict, they are attracted blah blah blah. I actually did not feel the build up of romance and connection that takes a story from being an ok, fine romance to a sigh, that was great romance.

    Very funny and the chemistry between Tamara and Russell was hot!!

    I didn’t let my mind settled before I was opening up this follow up book to FOR LOVE SAKE ONLY and from page one I was immersed. The two main characters in THE BLACKER THE BERRY really stepped up to the plate and make me see them as individuals rather than extensions of Ty and Charlotte.

    Tamara Holifield is struggling on all fronts, she’s in a temp job that is barely paying the bills, she misses her best friend – who has upped and gotten married and moved to the middle of beyond and to top it off she is still needing a decent model for her upcoming photographic show.

    When Ty practically begs her to come and keep Charlotte’s company as she was not doing so well with her pregnancy, She accepts to visit on weekends with some stipulation on her part. One thing that Ty did however put his foot down on was finding her a ride to get her to his ranch safely.

    The ride is none other than Ty’s best friend and lawyer, Russell Crichton. Tamara had met Russell two years earlier at Charlotte and Ty’s wedding and that was the extend of their acquaintance, although each had like the others style very much they have never run into each other not once during all that time.

    Russell is changing the whole course of his life from Lawyer to rancher and doesn’t expect someone like Tamara, but one car journey and few sassy words and he was hooked.

    Their path to HEA is froth with misunderstanding and lots of unsaid words and pain in the ass attitude. Despite that however they find time to make beautiful magic on every available surface and in every secluded corner that they can find.

    Something had to give however and when Russell makes up his mind that Tamara was it for him and she was worth it all – Tamara is still yet to resolve her own issues and this ends up with Russell wondering if any of it is even worth after all..

    This was a great follow up book to FOR LOVE’S SAKE ONLY – A longer book, so more smut – but also more time for trivial matters that the book could have done without. Once again Ms. Matthews filled this book with comic relief and I genuinely loved Tamara sense of fun- she had me smiling with every scene she pops up in.

    The characters were solid, and their only faults was that they talked but neither listened to what the other was saying and this led to some heated argument – but great as a precursor for make up sex….

    Of course Ms. Matthews touched on the race issue and in both books the matter was nipped in the bud right away and dealt with quite well I thought…

    The usual suspect was evident in THE BLACKER THE BERRY in the guise of the woman wronged and the other man, but they all were there to open the eyes of the main players and because of that I didn't mind them so much…

    If you have never tried Lena Matthews before – pick up something of hers now, she is an author that will make you laugh out loud..

    Whenever I read an Interracial Romance book, I'm always saddled with this question: Is this writer as good or as competent as other writers in different genres?

    Although I thought that this book was cute, for me, it wasn't fantastic. Perhaps I'm too much of a persnickety reader, but I'd rather spend 5 bucks on a book that's a 5 star read, instead of one that almost makes it to 3 1/2 stars.

    This book had so much promise, but in the end it wasn't written as well as it could have been. It was good, but it wasn't awesome.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Lena Matthews' books, but I'm just bold enough to believe that she (along with some other IRR genre writers) can produce a 5 star read.

    If Savannah Frierson, Latrivia Nelson, and Sienna Mynx can do it, why can't Ms. Matthews?
