"He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" is author, Tracy L. Darity's first novel about love - relationships between couples, family and friends. The novel follows protagonist, Khadejah Johnson - as a teenager experiencing love (or lust) for the first time through her adult years as she still attempts to find love. Khadejah goes through many trials and tribulations as she finds her own way through life and experiences many ups and downs in relationships around her - her relationship with her best friend, Vanisa, her parents, her siblings - older sister, Anisa, and older brother, Joshua, an established businessman, who is extremely protective of his little sister and will come to her rescue in more ways than one.
Khadejah has her share of interesting men who come and go in her life from her first love, high school basketball star, Terrance, who ultimately breaks her heart through infidelity; the infamous Justice, an older man with his own set of problems - many of them Khadejah will have to find out the hard way. Khadejah's relationship with Justice produces two beautiful daughters - one with autism. Fast-forward a few years, Khadejah is now in corporate America with another set of issues to address. In walks charismatic, Aaron, Khadejah's coworker, who has his own share of drama, both on and off the job. Throughout her relationships, her first love, Terrance, seems to be a constant mainstay in Khadejah's life as he attempts to reclaim love once lost.
Though lengthy, "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" is an interesting read and many readers will reminisce about their own present and past relationships - love lost and gained and more importantly - lessons learned from each of these relationships regardless of outcome.
