You Opened Your Legs Before I Opened My Heart by Jerald L. Howard

Title: You Opened Your Legs Before I Opened My Heart
Author: Jerald L. Howard
Rating: 3/5
Headline: Open Your Heart Before Anything Else

An old question is when is the appropriate time to move a relationship to one that becomes physical. “You Opened Your Legs Before I Opened My Heart” explores this topic as we, the readers, are exposed to couples that allowed a physical relationship to develop before an emotional attachment has been formed. This book aims to answer if sex alone can keep your partner interested in you and the relationship.

This book is a sequel to Howard’s “Life After the Night,” and since I have not read the first book in the series it took a while for some of the pieces of the puzzle to come together for me. Most of the storyline focuses on Lance and Tameka, a married couple at a crossroad because they are not sure who the father of Tameka’s unborn child is. The other main character is Radiance who displays very confusing behavior especially at the end of the book. Radiance’s behavior is always to the extreme and was not very believable.

“You Opened Your Legs Before I Opened My Heart” has the potential to be a much better book but it started out very slow and it took awhile for the pace to pick up. There were also quite a few spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book that if they were corrected it could make reading this book much smoother. I would recommend a title change as well because I would have never picked it up if it was not sent to me for review purposes.

Overall, this book has great potential.
