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.

LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
When I read the book review I wasn't at all interested in the story line it sounded a little boring but I decided to give it a chance anyway. I am in actually glad I had purchased this audiobook because it's nothing like I expected it to be the review doesn't give the book any type of justice. Granville was a fool with the lengths he was willing to go to have the woman that he set his sights on. My favorite character was Loretta and probably because she was the one I can relate to when it comes to being a single mother. The ending had me at the edge of my seat in shock because I am still amazed that the situation led to the end result. I cant wait to read the next book to see what Miss Southern Bell will do next. The main theme to this book should be, what you do in the dark always comes to the light. The Narrators were fantastic and brought the book to life and built the characters into the people you will learn to love or hate. Good book
Dude a little crazy (Granville), okaaay a lot crazy. No one can be that dumb, I pray. The book was good because, although you anticipate a few things, because they are twisted, they are not as predictable as you expect. Well written and full of drama. I was on the edge of my seat. Talk about captivated. The story of a stalker.
Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
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.
It has not turned me off from the genre but I will not purchase again from this author.
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.
I didn't like this book at all. It just seemed ridiculous to me. Cary Hite and Nicole Small are two of my favorite narrators but I didn't like them in this book. Alot of long pauses occurred during Cary's reading when he and Nicole were reading and/or interacting. I'm still trying to finish the book. The part where Madison gave the detailed description of her vagina was ridiculous. I found myself fast forwarding this book throughout. I wish I could get a refund on the book but of course I can't. Granville's craziness is the only thing that made the book interesting. I have over 120 books and I'd rank this one at the bottom like 118.
This book started out rather interesting until "the bet" came along. I mean, come on, what are we, in grade school??? I listened until the end and was ultimately disappointed. I have no desires to even want to listen to the books to follow...ugh! :
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.
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.
I haven't and don't plan to listen to another one.
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.
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.
This book was the worse I've listened to yet, but I enjoyed it enough to listen to the next book.
That Granville was CRAZY !! Other than that I loved this audiobook ! The two voices Nicole Small and Cary Hite really worked well together to bring this story to life ! I'm glad it worked out that way ! The story was great and easy to follow . The characters were loveable and it was hard not to like them . except that damn Madison ! if there was anyone i couldn't stand more in this book it was Madison ! she was so SELFISH ! LOVED THIS BOOK THOUGH ! BUY IT !!
it really was a good book kind of surprised it had a lot going on to keep you in it.crazy dude made the story. I didnt like how it ended, she should have just wrapped it up i mean if it was told to me that there is a part two, to this story i would have waited to read the book because i hate cliff hangers.
the ending, I wish she would have wrapped it up.
so many pause's in the book
it better have a follow up book i mean how you gonna leave the book with him on life support, and none of the issues resolved at all, plus it said that there will be one.
i would wait till part 2 to come out because you will be mad at the ending so just wait till part 2 to get here.
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook because the characters are well developed and the storyline is beast!
The most memorable moment was when one of the main characters got the surprise of her life after making a bet.
It is hard to pick just one. All of the characters were equally good.
I wish I could take them all to dinner, even the crazy ones!
Great author! Highly recommend this book to all!
