If I Can’t Have You | [Mary B. Morrison]

If I Can’t Have You

Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now. Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other.

Publisher's Summary

Mary B. Morrison, acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of Darius Jones and The Eternal Engagement, proves herself a masterful storyteller with this gripping new novel about an obsessed man and what he will do to make sure he gets the woman he wants.

Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now.

Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. She’s captured his heart, and he’ll do whatever is necessary not to let her break it. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her see that.

Mary B. Morrison has joined the ranks of African American women writing about what women of any ethnic group want to read about: how to find - and keep - your soul mate. Her writing style is both excellent and very erotic. She lives in Oakland with her son.

    ""Great Listen""

    I was somewhat skeptical about this book but I was elated to know that my Skepticism was put to rest after the first few pages. It was Mary B. Morrison at her best. The characters were vibrant and colorful. Madison selfishness and rich girl attitude would eventually lead down the wrong road. She seems to enjoy the "slippery slope" she walked on. Granville was just…how can I say it…delusional and Loretta, well… They all will get what they are asking for. I just hope that Chicago will come out unscathed, maybe?

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    "NOT BAD, BUT DEFINITELY NOT GREAT"
    What did you like best about If I Can’t Have You? What did you like least?

    I'm not sure what I liked best. I didn't like another books with best friends for life that can't seem to get along and that they simply don't like each other. Madison is probably like more people than we think, but no redeeming qualities whatsoever and her Dad was even worse.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mary B. Morrison before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't and don't plan to listen to another one.


    What didn’t you like about Nicole Small and Cary Hite ’s performance?

    I did not like Nicole's version of a southern girl, specifically Madison's voice. I live in TN and I've heard different southern accents based on the region of our state, but they this was horrible.


    Do you think If I Can’t Have You needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It does have a follow up, but I didn't know it. This book was long enough and had enough in it that it should have ended with this book. This was enough.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was the worse I've listened to yet, but I enjoyed it enough to listen to the next book.

    Story
    "Would not purchase again..."
    What would have made If I Can’t Have You better?

    A better storyline maybe...

    I have read material from this author before and found her to be somewhat inconsistent. I made the purchase because I noticed both a male and female narrator and who knows... maybe this book would be one of the good ones from the author. I was let down. The performance was quite choppy with a lot of ill-timed pauses. In all fairness though, I'm not sure if better narration would have helped improve the story; which was lack-luster at best. The main characters were aggravating and I almost did not care what happened to them in the end. Of course, I'm one of those individuals with a dogged determination to finish any book I purchase so I got through it. Buyer beware.


    Has If I Can’t Have You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has not turned me off from the genre but I will not purchase again from this author.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from If I Can’t Have You?

    The book was just too much... too many misunderstandings, too many poor decisions, too many assumptions. The book just never seemed to land and there was never really a character to care about.

    "Interesting..."
    Where does If I Can’t Have You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have just recently started to listen to audio books but it was good enough to continue to listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loretta and Chicago where my favorite characters. I actually wanted them to be together which makes me want to read the next book in this series.


    What three words best describe Nicole Small and Cary Hite ’s performance?

    Nicole: Sultry, Thoughtful, Lots of Range
    Cary: Silly, Weird, Funny


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really liked the narration of Nicole Small but I wish a different guy did the voices of Chaz and Chicago. This is because he brought the crazy voice of Granville to all the characters.

    "This book has it all... Drama and comedy!!!"

    I looked at this book a couple of times before I actually bought it. The only thing that changed my mind were some of it's good reviews and they were ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

    I truly enjoyed this book and the narration. While I would hate to run across a character like Granville in real life, he was pure comedy to me. I could not wait for his parts to come in the book - almost every time I laughed out loud at his thought processes.

    Each character was so different and well thought out. They each brought something special to the story, although I would have liked to have known Tisha a little better.

    This is a book that I definitely would have enjoyed in a printed format; but the narration was so on point and enjoyable that I feel anyone who only purchases the print version is really missing out on one of the most enjoyable parts of the story.

    Although there were some significant pauses that should have been corrected prior to publishing and some rather cheesy side effects that did not add to the story, those would be my only issues with the narration.

    I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to this one and I pray that they keep the same narrators.

    "So Good I'm Listening Twice"
    Would you listen to If I Can’t Have You again? Why?

    Yes, I'm actually getting ready to start it over. The story line was great and it's funny as heck.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way the story flowed and how humor was interjected.


    Have you listened to any of Nicole Small and Cary Hite ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sex, Lies, Videotapes and Laughter


    Any additional comments?

    The only parts that were not as good as the rest was when Loretta got on her soapbox about her experiences with relationships and stayed there a minute too long. Otherwise, this was an AWESOME read!
