Reviewed by Talia Ricci




Justine Diamond and Zachery Wayne met each other during a cruise.  To both it seemed it was love at first sight.  However, much to Justine’s heartbreak, Zachery left without a single word.  He quite frankly vanished almost into thin air and Justine told herself that she didn’t need him.  But she lied.

The hardest thing Zachery has ever done was leave Justine over a year ago on that cruise ship.  He has never forgotten her or stopped desiring her.  When he sees her again, he is shattered to find that she hates him and won’t even let him explain why he left.  In spite of this, Zachery vows that Justine will know the truth and how much he loves her.

He might even have a little paranormal help on the side.

Lost and found love is one of my favorite plots.  Misconstrued emotions, hurt, anger – most characters run the gamut between happy, sad, and angry.  Justine was no different except for one thing.  In her anger and sadness she became a shrew.  A very big one.  One that I found I couldn’t stomach.  My dislike of Justine was so much that I prayed for Zachery to tell her to go stuff herself.  Alas, he was a better person than me.  He loved her in spite of her complete stubbornness and horrible personality.  He loved her enough to accept her for what she was and how she handled her anger and hurt.

It Takes Two is about forgiveness and new beginnings.  Justine and Zachery both had a lot to forgive and forget in order for their relationship to become one of partners and lovers.  In spite of it all, true love reigned.
