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.

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.
Yes, I'm actually getting ready to start it over. The story line was great and it's funny as heck.
I liked the way the story flowed and how humor was interjected.
Sex, Lies, Videotapes and Laughter
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!
Yes, just in case I missed something before the sequel comes.
The characters and relationships were real life.
I literally wanted to ride longer in the car just to know what happened next.
Since I live in TX the locations were real to me, and the characters, too.
Loved this- can't wait for part 2!
Loved the all..
except for Grandville...
This was a story that had you rooting for the wrong side over and over, just when you thought you was on the rite side.
It was good right from the beginning
All ..they both have great voices. ..they keep you intrigued
It was just a all around good book
Overall i liked the entire story
This is a must to listen to or read
so far it's in the top 10
GRANVILLE!! Crazy as heck!
when Chicago really needed a prayer partner. When his heart was speaking to him and he couldn't pray because of his future wife.
Don't play with fire because you will get burned! and hopefully there will be a sequal because you just can't let somebody die because of spite at lease nobody with a heart.
surprisingly, good, read
This story was very true to life. People go through these kinds of things often when they don't know how to control themselves. This story will make you believe in karma...what goes around comes around.
The narrators were very good but the pausing got on my nerves in the begining. After a while a I gotuse to it. other than that they were very good.
All of the characters were revelant. I would keep everyone.
Can't wait for the sequel because that ending was a major cliffhanger!
The female narrator's voice was irritating. Made it difficult to listen.
First Audible listen, but I've read a few Mary B. Morrison novels. I'm a fan.
Not Nicole Small. But Cary Hite, I would try another one of his novels.
More disappointment...thought the characters were silly acting adults. Simply Hilarious
