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.

    Story
    "Crazy, Twisted Stalker"
    Where does If I Can’t Have You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    so far it's in the top 10


    What was one of the most memorable moments of If I Can’t Have You?

    GRANVILLE!! Crazy as heck!


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

    first time


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when Chicago really needed a prayer partner. When his heart was speaking to him and he couldn't pray because of his future wife.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Better than I expected"
    If you could sum up If I Can’t Have You in three words, what would they be?

    surprisingly, good, read


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Nicole Small and Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    If you could take any character from If I Can’t Have You out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    All of the characters were revelant. I would keep everyone.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the sequel because that ending was a major cliffhanger!

    Story
    "A little disappointed"
    What would have made If I Can’t Have You better?

    The female narrator's voice was irritating. Made it difficult to listen.


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

    First Audible listen, but I've read a few Mary B. Morrison novels. I'm a fan.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Small and Cary Hite ’s performances?

    Not Nicole Small. But Cary Hite, I would try another one of his novels.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    More disappointment...thought the characters were silly acting adults. Simply Hilarious

    "Kept me reading and wanting more!!!"

    First, how the narrators read this story was good and interesting...even though there were only two readers, they made it seem like it was just about as many characters reading as there were in the book!! Story was GOOD!! Please Mary continue this....I want more!!

    There is so many favorite scenes, but I will go with when Granville thinks Madison is carrying his baby.

    This book was so funny. I can't wait for the second part to come out. I love all of Mary B. Morrison books, but I think this is at the top of the list.

    Story
    "Stalker, Crazy Stalker"
    Would you consider the audio edition of If I Can’t Have You to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is way better because the performance is amazing.


    What other book might you compare If I Can’t Have You to and why?

    Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. They both have a seriously psycho character. Both who deserve punishment but may never get it.


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Small and Cary Hite – was your favorite?

    Grandville was my favorite. The things that would come out of his mouth was so crazy and funny at the same time. A woman's worst nightmare.


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

    Fatal Attraction looks like child's play compared to this.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is worth the money. It makes you laugh, mad and shocks you. The book is very graphic. Some of the graphic talk could have been toned down. It was not needed to make the point. Also didn't like how it ended. It is to be continued. There were no answers.

    "Engaging and Entertaining!"
    Would you listen to If I Can’t Have You again? Why?

    Absolutely! The scenes were engaging, and laugh out loud funny!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The abilbity to speak from the mind of a stalking, ego-egocentric narcissist.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    NO particular favorite, although the wedding scene made my stay in my driveway listening to the end before I turned my car off.
