RAWSISTAZ reviews Save The Best For Last (4 stars)

Here's what they say:

"Griffin has written an exciting romantic tale with a splash of suspense. As I read Save The Best For Last , I became engrossed in Genevieve's emotions, her thoughts about how this business plan would affect everyone involved if it goes sour or how will she be able to keep her relationship with Dexter strictly business. Sure to please romance readers, Save The Best For Last is a heartwarming story of love and trust."

Have you gotten your copy yet? If you haven't, you'll have to wait a day or two. I've suspended orders temporarily while I wait for my new proof to come in. I made a few corrections last week and want to see how they look before opening it up for orders again. (The ability to change the text is is a bonus that comes with print-on-demand publishing.) If the mailmain brings my proof today, it'll be ready for order later or tomorrow!
