Review of Construct a Couple

Last week was  Talli Roland's  launch of Construct a Couple, the sequel to Build a Man. 


Construct a Couple picks up where Build a Man left off, however it could be read alone also.

Serenity is spending more of her time with Jeremy, who has recovered from his stroke and has started a charity for other stroke victims.  As Jeremy puts all his time and energy into the charity, Serenity has  finally landed a job as a fact checker for Seven Days, more reputable than her previous tabloid job.  Although life seems to be coming together for the couple, they neglect to share intimate details of their work with potentially devastating results to them both.

Serenity dreams of becoming a successful reporter one day and is thrilled to be working with one of her idols, Helen Goodall.  As an attempt to break out of "Fact Check Row", she reveals a new angle on her first major story.  She is so excited to be taken seriously until she learns that the story could come at a major price.

What I thought:

Construct a Couple brings back our favorite couple of Jeremy and Serenity, as well as other colorful characters to keep things exciting.  Serenity and Jeremy both face conflicts throughout and struggle to do the right thing, often missing the obvious.  Construct a Couple shows how dedication in a relationship is sometimes not enough without trust and communication.

Taking on a new adventure in life is better done when shared.
