This was a great story... and great dramatization. I enjoyed this almost as much as the movie.

Jemistry Daniels is a bitter woman and not trying to hide it. Even though she is beautiful, intelligent, and makes six figures a year as a high school principal in Washington, DC, one man after another has failed her. So she decides to give up and join the party by adapting the entire "friends with benefits" mentality with a couple of men that she beds on the regular but refuses to hold any kind of real conversation with, in fear that she might actually catch feelings.

  • I get the point, but not a very good story.

I usually enjoy Zane and her style of writing. This book was frustrating because I felt like she was on a soapbox the entire book. With that being said-- the overall message was great, but the story could have been better.
