In Love Finally author Nakiesia Reid delves readers into the life of Carla Milford. Carla is a successful Atlanta attorney navigating the dating scene. While having brunch with her best friend Tamika, Carla begins flirting with their sexy waiter, Tony, eventually slipping him her phone number. The chemistry between Carla and Tony is undeniable however Carla has no interest in pursuing a committed relationship with Tony due to his modest occupation. Totally satisfied with a purely physical relationship it takes a near fatal event for Carla to surrender to the feelings that she has for Tony.
Admitting her love for Tony is just the tip of the iceberg for the couple. The relationship has to endure opposition from Carla’s mother and an obsessed client, Sergio that Carla unknowingly takes on. The turmoil the couple endures illuminates Tony’s upstanding characteristics and further illustrates how a man should not be judged by the size of his wallet. Ms. Reid exemplifies this effortlessly throughout the novel as Tony outshines Carla whose self-destructive behavior jeopardizes the relationship on several occasions.
Love Finally utilizes a typical formula found in contemporary literature. That being when a woman is too caught up in society’s standards to notice the good man that’s right in front of her face. Many times alienating him and destroying her opportunity to find true love. The story as told by Ms. Reid takes on no new challenges to this theory and at many points becomes run of the mill. This lack of innovativeness makes Love Finally a decent read instead of an exemplary one.
