definately entertaining What a book, at first you think it s going to be about a love story, but it s also about a drama at the same time and the characters in it dance back and forth as you rush to read each chapter to see how it s going to endI love what happens in the end This story has betreyal and rape and tales of boys being gay, and all that you ll love it. #FREE EPUB ⚣ Chocolate Sangria ⚟ Juanita Lucas is a young woman living in a housing project in Brooklyn Although she has a very light complexion, she is proud of her blackness, even as she takes a beating from the very sistahs she tries so hard to emulate Her only friend, Scooter Morrison, is an upwardly mobile brother who also happens to be young, gifted, and gay Then a chance encounter with two fine Puerto Rican men changes Juanita s and Scooter s lives in ways they could never have imagined There is Conan, a hardworking man who wrestles with both his love for Juanita and his guilt over his brother s death and Jorge, an unscrupulous bad boy thug who has no problem using what he s got to get what he wants, until he comes dangerously close to getting scorched by his own flamesFast paced, suspenseful, and unpredictable, Chocolate Sangria explores the hearts of two lovers who get caught in the great cultural divide and the devastating consequences of keeping secrets, telling lies, and betraying those you love Reason I gave this book 3 stars is because I really didn t like how every time throughout the story there was constant mentioning of people s race, as if we didn t already know.I also didn t get the reference to the chocolate and the sangria First of all they said in the story she was really light skinned and so how could she be chocolate Basically over all I feel as though the story didn t flow very well. Jorge was crazy I liked this one Now I shall read this Black Coffee Chocolate Sangria was a brutally honest book about stereotypes and racism, loving oneself and finding oneself Tracy Price Thompson created a well woven tapestry of characters and gave them life I gave it three stars, instead of four because the book is extremely graphic, and I felt it took a way from the beauty of the writing Other than that, I thought it was an amazing read. Surprises unvailed throughout the story Deviations from the expected enhanced through mini stories from each main character.
