Dating interracial jasmine
According to Merriam Webster an obsession is a “persistent disturbing preoccupation with an often unreasonable idea or feeling.” Why must it be disturbing? While she loves him and talks about him more often than not, no one is getting hurt, she can still live a relatively normal life and all is good. Well ladies and gentlemen, hello nice to meet you, my name is Jasmine and I am obsessed with interracial relationships.
I know that some people obsess till a point where it becomes dangerous, a Robin Williams- One Hour Photo situation, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. No, she isn’t hanging outside of his home waiting for him to arrive, only to catch even the slightest glimpse of those lips (oh those lips), or going to his barber, collecting all of his fallen locks of hair to add to her shrine (although I wish I didn’t mention that last one because I wouldn’t put it past her), but it is still an obsession.
You get handed a romance novel, and you probably expect steamy scenes with a lot of tartan torn to shreds.
At the very least, you think you can count on a pirate or two, or the hero getting called a "rake." That was before Jasmine Guillory, a Stanford-Law-grad-romance-novelist who's responsible for , one of the most highly-anticipated books of the year. With her new book, not only does she break the stereotype around lawyers, she delivers a romance novel that takes on race, social justice, and white male privilege.
They have a great time together at the wedding, and afterward… Alexa and Drew came to me not quite fully formed, but probably about 90% there.
Alexa came to me first, and after I knew who she was, I thought about who the perfect person would be for her to meet in that elevator.
[...] It was also nice to read a fun novel about an interracial relationship.
Yes, I am a fan of Interracial Relationships and Interracial Dating on Facebook.
I wanted someone who would delight her, challenge her, surprise her, and make her laugh, and Drew was born.
Neither of them is anyone I know, but they, and all of the rest of my characters, have so many people I know as a part of them, myself included.
I’m not going to lie – when I saw that tweet, I screamed so loudly I think I scared my neighbors.
It meant everything to me for someone whose work I respect so much to say such kind and wonderful things about my book. But unlike Alexa and Drew, I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, and tend to go for savory breakfasts over sweet ones.
