Publisher's Summary

Leticia Langley is used to fighting for what she wants. That's how she wound up being the first in her family to graduate from college. So what if she's never had a date? All that's about to change when she gets herself a job as a food columnist for The Journal - and treats herself to a makeover that will transform her life.

With her hot weave and a dazzling new wardrobe that shows off her curves, the opposite sex suddenly takes a shine to Leticia. Except for Max Baldwin - a colleague who accuses her of trying to knock him down on her stampede up the corporate ladder. But Leticia is determined to stand her ground and get her due. And as she finds herself being offered more tantalizing prospects, including a trip to Africa, she also wins the respect - and admiration - of her handsome one-time nemesis, Max. Now she'll have to decide if she wants to let down her guard and let in the one man she could get serious about.

Another Gwynne Forster charmer!!!!

I have been a fan of Mrs. Forster's style for too many years to count and when she passed she left so many stories untold. this is one of the few of her titles I'd only read once so to be reintroduced to characters id loved, to see updates from other characters id loved from other stories, and to have it all come as a new audible title was a treat!!!

i pray this is the start of her estate making all her titles available here because i am all on board for the whole roster!!!

Awesome performance

I haven't listened to a worse performance. You could barely tell the difference between the different characters. Max sounded more feminine than Lateesha. Also was a disappointment. After everything Lateesha was blessed with and all the lessons she learned, she still gloated in that girls from college's face. at the end it made her seen small and very mean. Also the writer used unnecessarily complicated words.

I need a Baldwin!

I absolutely loved the story! The tale of self discovery through a plethora of relationships was realistic and refreshing.

Wash that man right out of your hair.

I always enjoy Gwynne Forster's books, her books always have a practical application & a moral Life lesson. 1st time hearing Lisa Renee Pitts, she gave an excellent performance.

Knowing and Understanding your Worth

Overall, this book demonstrates how rewarding life can be by setting goals and expectations. And embracing change is the key to success in every aspect.

The performance could have been better if the character Max was narrated by a male such as J D Jackson.

Snooze

This book was boring that I fell asleep twice at work listening to it. It just didn't move me to stay interested in it at all. I also thought the narrator was a little basic .
