Left at the altar a year before, jilted Broadway bombshell Yancey Harrington Braxton stages her comeback - this time as a recording star - but has she forgiven ex-fiancé Basil, or does she still need to even the score? As Yancey's star continues to rise, her past threatens to catch up with her and she fears someone may be after her as well...
In a wicked little dance of revenge, Basil and Yancey struggle to keep their lives on track, while a chorus of unforgettable characters either come to their aid of make matters worse. In the mix are: Yancey's mother, Ava "Mama Dearest" Braxton, a diva's diva and a second-rate showgirl housed in the body of an aging supermodel; the wise and wonderful Windsor Adams; and the new guy on the scene, Bartholomew "Bart" Dunbar, a rogue's rogue and handsome hunk of a man who stands to make Basil look like a choirboy.
With just the right amount of wickedness, love, and compassion, Harris' masterful storytelling and delicious plot twists will have fans and newcomers alike frantically trying to find the answer to the ultimate question: Does revenge ever really pay?

"E. Lynn Harris' newest book is an urban soap opera packed with more drama than a hurricane at a Fourth of July picnic." (USA Today)
I love E. Lynn Harris' book. What I would like to see is a different story line besides, boy meets girl-boy meets boy-boy leaves girl for boy. This is a continuation from Not a Day Goes By. So this is a story of girl moving on. I like.
This is the second E Lynn Harris I've listened to. Enjoyed the characters and really find it easy to get involved with them. They can be so mixed up at one time and then get things turned around again. In this audio, the female voice took a little time to warm up to her character but finally got it right. The male voices are great.
I'm disappointed; its the same story thats the end of the last book. Nothing new! I thought it would actually pick up from the from NOT A DAY GOES BY. Maybe I misread the summary....I luv Sanaa (she's my gurl!) but u can tell she was just reading. That's weird considering she's an awesome actress.
THIS WAS A GOOD BOOK, SANAA LATHAN(NARRATOR) TOOK SOME GETTING USED TO AT FIRST BUT PICKED UP INTO BOOK OTHER NARRATOR WAS GREAT AND THIS BOOK WAS ENTERTAINING, GREAT PLOTS AND TWIST AND REALLY MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT MEN AND WHAT THEY MAYBE HIDING
this book was great just like all E. Lynn Harris books. after reading them you feel like you really know these people they feel like old friends.
However I did not really care for the male voice that was reading the book kind of reminded me of the jive talk of the 70's.
