a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
He kinda looked like Ross, he even smiled like him. My mind didn’t want him. It shouldn’t have. Not after Ross.
But he smelled good and he talked to me in a way that felt good, deep down in my soul.
He wasn’t Ross.
Zena Lewis believed in fairy tales as a little girl. She carried those fantasies of a knight in shining armor loving her until eternity, until her ugly separation and divorce from her ex. These days, a man would have to be lucky to get her to smile back at him, let alone give up her number.
Until Rafael Dupré.
Rafael was different.
This is the second book in the Soulmate series. If you thought She’s Got Soul was hot…grab a gallon of ice water for this one. Zena and Raphael are two very deep characters.
Zena is a hardworking single mother with a daughter that you can’t help but love. She’s also been hurt before but wants to experience love again. While on a business trip she meets Raphael, a man who is intrigued about all things Zena.
Raphael is a man who loves his hometown of New Orleans. He’s ready to love, ready to marry but has no prospects. That is until he meets Zena Lewis, it’s love at first sight. But their first introduction isn’t a good one. Raphael has to change that and quickly.
The title of this book Deep In My Soul has this title for a reason. This book gets deep. There are many references to ‘the third eye’ ‘second sight’ and the similar lives of Raphael and Zena’s mothers. Aja makes you think about yourself and those around you in this book. But she also makes you search inside yourself to see who you are as an individual and if you are holding yourself back from being loved.
This series is great, but be ready to do some soul searching while reading. Aja has a journal that accompanies this book. You might want to snag that when you order your copy of Deep In My Soul.
