The Big City of Love
The Big City of Love reveals the true meaning of love in a unique and interesting manner. Combining fiction with nonfiction, Ron Spates presents a story inspired by everyday encounters and observations based on love, loss, heartbreak, and healing. Readers are introduced to several characters, each with their own struggles and journeys.
There’s the story of the Honorable Judge Adam, a sixty-year-old wealthy man, who married his twenty-year-old secretary after falling deeply in love with her. Unbeknownst to him, his wife continues to lie, cheat, and even steal throughout their marriage, hurting him deeply when he finds out.
Then there’s the story of Tracy, a twenty-eight-year-old school teacher, who has had a string of unsuccessful relationships that has almost made her give up on the idea of true love. An exotic dancer by night, Tracy struggles to juggle her two jobs and many short-lived relationships to find a balance in this world.
Next, you have Tammy; a widow who is searching for the real meaning of love. Mother to three kids, she struggles to find love again after a history of trauma and loss.
The story also includes the journey of a bisexual woman named Star, who has been married to her husband for 15 years. A doctor by profession, she’s in love with a woman named Princess and has been cheating on him for quite some time. Little does she know, though, that her husband has also been having an affair with Princess, making a complicated love triangle.
Jimmy is a sugar daddy who enjoys pursuing conventionally attractive women. While he appears to be tough and macho with his excessive spending and lavish gifts, he too is looking to find true love.
Finally, T.J. is a thirty-year-old celebrity who jokes about settling down but is actually very non-committal about his relationships. With a reputation as “the player,” he has a sarcastic and selfish attitude about love itself.
In The Big City of Love, they experience self-reflection, healing, happiness, confidence, and of course, love, once again. In this dome-like Court of Love, they’re provided unconditional love that helps them live a life of fulfillment and have unimaginable experiences. The Big City of Love is where broken hearts are healed and heart breakers are held accountable. How does this enthralling narrative unfold? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
