SUMMARY ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Inger Iversen

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 chargeA succes I wavered between 45 and 5 stars but decided to go with the full five because Incarcerated is a risky as fuck romanceNormally the last thing I want in my contemporary IR is an overemphasis on race In the wrong hands such novels are tiresomely heavyhanded written like some social treatise on race relations I personally have no sympathy for a grown Black woman character or a heroine of any race who allows others to dictate her happiness However the premise of this novel really intrigued me and I was curious as to how a racist hero could be made redeemable How do you write an IR romance between a Black woman and a White man and somehow make the hero who's both a racist and a criminal both sympathetic yet remain true to life An ex con is one thing and there are plenty of romances with such heroes A racist hero is something else There's no sugarcoating it Can such a character be redeemed and in a way that doesn't insult my intelligence The only other novel I can think of that has done eually as good a job handling such controversial subject matter is The Woman from Cheshire AvenueWhat I appreciated about the book was that author Inger Iversen didn't gloss over the kind of man Logan Whyte was I didn't like him and that was perfectly okay I didn't swoon over him because he was sexy tough and tatted Too many authors in romance pull this kind of the OMG he's a wounded bad boy but he's SO hawt so I'll forgive him for being a total dick trope Christian Grey anyone Writing a hero who believes and says horrible things about minorities then to make him human is a very tall order though it was very hard to believe that he stopped at using racial slurs That sounded like a cop out and detracted from Logan being true to life He's a racist let him behave like one For all that she humanized Logan and it's the humanity as flawed and messed up as he was that I understood That doesn't excuse his past and as a character he doesn't excuse it either His inadvertently falling in love sight unseen with a Black woman who was writing to him via a prison pen pal program doesn't turn into a rousing rendition of Ebony and Ivory He's got a whole lot of baggage and a lot of unlearning to do Yet it's an unlearning he's willing to do in order to be a better man overallThe heroine Katie had me back and forth emotionally There were times I understood her desire for solitude I related to her struggle as a Black person weighted down by societal and intra cultural expectations Her feeling of not being Black enough is one I knew far too well and how that sense of not belonging to any world can lead to loneliness On the other hand there were moments her pity party made me want to reach into the book and slap some backbone into her There were a few times I kept yelling Your ass is a NYT best selling author You've got money a beautiful home and a car all paid for All those haters who made fun of you for 'talking white' are probably in jail or got twenty kids by ten different daddies or strung out on Meth in some dinky trailer park with no teeth Get an effing grip Again it is a moral imperative that I love the heroine as much as I do the hero When Katie stood up to her father best friend and her own fearsinsecurities she was amazing She also didn't allow her feelings for Logan to blind her to his issues with race and when she called him out on them it was like you go girlSpeaking of best friend Teal Another reason for the five stars is because of the very strong female friendship Teal isn't perfect and her habit of infantilizing Katie in the guise of protecting her was only that her heart was in the right place After all only a true best friend is going to uestion the wisdom of taking up with an ex con A racist one at that Let me say this If you're a reader who likes everything wrapped up in a nice neat bow this book won't work I personally consider it an HFN Happily For Now rather than an HEA because both Logan and Katie have a very long struggle ahead of them They both have pasts

Sful 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 wardenThe program brings together the unlikely pair but Logan and Katie soon I've long been curious about what might happen in a romance novel where one of the characters was overtly prejudiced against the race of the other character Although I tend to side eye the idea of prison romance in real life I decided to give its book incarnation a chance when several people whose opinions I trust told me they had enjoyed this bookWhile I found the main characters to be thoroughly unlikeable and their love story a bit of a stretch I thought that Inger Iversen did a great job of making their characters believable within the context of the story she wroteKatie's personality was ripe for epistolary romance – because her past experiences had left her inept at maintaining in person relationships it wasn't hard to believe that she might fall in love through letters I see no shame in that and Iversen was careful to include enough detail about who Katie was to make me believe in it I thought that she behaved as if she was stuck on stupid many many times Seriously you thought you were stupid for missing the neon lit signs that you boyfriend was racist You don't want to know what I thought of your intelligence and powers of observation But stupid sometimes happens to smart people in real life even to writers on the NYT best seller list And the sort of stupid that involves lonely people falling in love with a person who pays them a little non real world attention happens often enough that tales of women falling for convicts have become old hatJust the fact that Logan had been imprisoned for nearly a decade for having made a stupid choice lends some credence to his ability to find love through letters and phone calls but I felt that Iverson fell short of the mark in establishing his as a personality capable of doing just that Perhaps if we had been given glimpse of his interactions with Katie I'd have been of a believer As things stand I didn't feel like I was given strong reason for someone with deeply engrained trust issues to overcome his biased beliefs to give love with this woman a chanceThe book stumbled on the editing front as well While not as bad in that area as many non traditionally published books the errors stood out because I was already struggling to relate to characters I didn't like And that was exacerbated by occasional consistency errorsWhy was Jake called Jack on first reference Did Jan Erik meet Katie's mother when Katie was ten years old or had he been married to her since Katie was eight Was Teal a college dropout or did she have a college degree Had Katie's father died or had he divorced Katie's mother and then abandoned KatieThis wasn't a terrible book and its problems are eminently fixable but it's not ready for the bright lights in its current form
