My Best Friend and My Man: A Novel | [Cydney Rax]

My Best Friend and My Man: A Novel

Veron Darcey is a 20-something African American woman who wants it all: a successful career, an upwardly mobile life, and a loving, attentive man. But the last few men Veron has been with have either added her to their five-woman rotation or relegated her to the dreaded "just friends" zone. After one particularly bad date, Veron caves in and asks her best friend, Demetria Sparks, to share her secrets. Demetria is a gorgeous woman who has something special - men line up to paint her toenails and lavish her with Caribbean cruises and diamond rings. Demetria tries to give Veron a mind-and-body makeover....

Publisher's Summary

The things women will do - to men and to each other - in search of love.

Veron Darcey is a 20-something African American woman who wants it all: a successful career, an upwardly mobile life, and a loving, attentive man. But the last few men Veron has been with have either added her to their five-woman rotation or relegated her to the dreaded "just friends" zone.

After one particularly bad date, Veron caves in and asks her best friend, Demetria Sparks, to share her secrets. Demetria is a gorgeous woman who has something special - men line up to paint her toenails and lavish her with Caribbean cruises and diamond rings. Demetria tries to give Veron a mind-and-body makeover, but sweet Veron struggles with being aggressive. And when Demetria demonstrates her method on Veron's dream guy, Seaphes, his lack of interest provokes her to pull out all the stops - and forces Veron into a fierce competition between mentor and student. With pressure (and sexual tension) mounting, Veron begins to wonder if changing herself is a mistake. But is it too late to back off her new game now that she's gotten a juicy taste of just what she's capable of?

    "Absolute worst book I've ever Read!!!"
    Would you try another book from Cydney Rax and/or Tina Marie Lovejoy?

    No


    What could Cydney Rax have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not sure if she's capable


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tina Marie Lovejoy?

    I'm sure no one would be willing to narrate this book after reading it


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Best Friend and My Man?

    This book should not have been written to have supposibly grown educated people talk, think and act this way was ridiculous...


    Any additional comments?

    The worst book

    "Boring"

    This book is stupid. So mad I wasted my money on this crap. The main character can't think for herself. Annoying. Her friend is a gold digging whore who can't control her own love life.
