From the nationally best-selling author of Married Men comes this hilarious story of four black men searching for true love. Kevin's got the looks; Antoine's got the heart and soul; Tyrone's got the skills; and Maurice has all the player moves - but what they don't have are good women in their lives. What do they do? Call 1-900-BLACK-LUV, of course! The riotous experiences that follow have to be heard to be believed.

As far as she's concerned, a relationship with any man is a horrible idea. But a relationship with Leland McClain? That's just out of the question. He has to have her. She is undeniably attracted to him. But will she lower her guard and let him hold her?
