GHBT- 'Incarcerated' by Inger Iversen Audiobook Review

Love and War Standalone # 1
Genre- Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication Date- September 29th, 2014

One of the few white kids in a rural Kentucky town, Logan Whyte always kept to his own kind out of self-preservation. He never considered himself racist, but that didn’t stop him from falling in with the wrong crowd that celebrated hate as much as he fought it - or from ending up in prison for eight years on an armed robbery charge.

A successful and educated black woman, Katie Andreassen is tired of being accused of betraying her own race. Her lonely isolation, coupled with her grief over losing her mother, inspire her to create a new pen pal program at Capshaw State Penitentiary, where her father is a warden.

The program brings together the unlikely pair, but Logan and Katie soon find themselves forced to overcome past fears and prejudices. Their friendship doesn’t come easily - threatened by a crooked lawyer with a grudge and a best friend who betrays her promise to help.

When faced with a world that forces them apart, Logan and Katie must show everyone else what they have discovered: that love is, in fact, colorblind.

Mel's Review 

Incarcerated is the first book in the Love and War stand alone series by Inger Iversen. This was a steamy-very steamy-contemporary story about a somewhat sheltered black woman and a white male inmate at the local prison. A white inmate with loose ties to white supremacists. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I read the synopsis of this book but I'm very glad I gave it a chance. This book was something completely new for me and I really enjoyed it. 

I couldn't help but become interested in the characters, the descriptions and the story itself right from the beginning. This story was so much more than I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Rife with emotion; the bonds of friendship, the stirrings of love and the confusion of beliefs shattered in a moment of realization. This book outshone my expectations and left me hungry for more from this fantastic author. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves steamy romance and fantastic writing! 

My Rating- 

About the Author-
Inger Iversen lives in Virginia Beach with her tree-hugging boyfriend, Joshua and her overweight lap cat, Max. When not reading or writing she spends her time watching reruns of True Blood, Walking Dead or killing zombies in Call Of Duty. Of course, if the world were to change into some World War Z type situation, she’d probably be the only chick running around searching for a Ray Gun!
