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.

A complete review soon to follow. The audio version was wonderful to listen to, and easy to follow the characters throughout the story. More on this novel later, and Happy New Year.
This was a good book. Story lines and characters were well developed with the exception of (the third friend, I can't even remember her name) Madison got on my nerves. I couldn't believe she blamed her bad decisions on Loretta the entire book. Not to mention Loretta tried to talk her out of it more than once. My hopes for the next book are that Madison finally gets a reality check & Loretta grows a pair where it really counts.
This was an amazing listen! It's the first Audible book I've listened to with different sound effects like a doorbell or a phone ringing small things really make the story come to life. Grandville was CRAZY!!!! Madison was selfish, shady and did I say selfish? I wanted Loretta to end up with a man I'm just not sure if Chass was the right guy... Anyway this was a fantastic book! Buy it now!
I loved how well the characters are developed.
Grandville, is so funny in a very sick kind of way.
I really liked the book and was mad as HEdouble hockey sticks at the cliff hanger I was hanging on to that cliff!!
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 have just recently started to listen to audio books but it was good enough to continue to listen.
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.
Nicole: Sultry, Thoughtful, Lots of Range
Cary: Silly, Weird, Funny
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.
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.
