In Like A Brother by Maurice M. Gray, Jr, readers are introduced to Jeremiah McAllister, a man who takes his role as big brother seriously. Jeremiah soon realizes his family members depend on him for everything and it is starting to be too much. Jeremiah also tries to deal with his feelings for Jenisse Anderson, seeming that she only thinks of him as a brother.

Jenisse is thankful she can always depend on Jeremiah for help. She believes it would affect their friendship too much if they were to date, especially since she doesn’t look at him as boyfriend material. Jenisse has her reasons and until she can face them trying to have a relationship will continue to be a problem for her.

I can relate to Jeremiah’s character, being the person my family depends on and it does becoming overwhelming. I can also relate to Erik’s character in feeling that your parents don’t have time for you since a new family member has entered the scene.

Gray writes characters readers can relate to and want to follow throughout the story. I was patiently waiting for Jeremiah to say enough is enough when it came to his family members. This was a book with a little bit of drama, a Godly presence that doesn’t over power the story and well-developed characters all wrapped into a small book.

This book was provided by the author for review purposes only.
