Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.348 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story starts off showing both Jezzaida and Logan in a bad light. By the end, they’ve learned some respect for each other.

Con: The plot of this story is “man-hating black woman learns wisdom from strong white man who rescues her from her own stupidity.”
