Publisher's Summary

For Erica Sanders, finding a soul mate was the easy part. Brian Lawson is the man she wants, and everyone agrees they're the ideal couple. Almost everyone. The one exception is Erica's mother, Karen, who prefers her daughter marry another man. Karen even hires a private detective to investigate Brian, but the truth he uncovers is the last thing she expected - a devastating betrayal that rips both families apart.

Convinced that her relationship can't be salvaged, Erica ends her engagement. Yet she has lingering doubts over her decision, especially once Brian's attractive single neighbor starts pursuing him. A chance meeting proves that the passion between Brian and Erica hasn't dimmed - but neither has the determination of others to keep them apart or the shocking lengths Karen will go to in order to undermine her daughter's relationship.

As secrets old and new are revealed, Erica and Brian find themselves caught between the bonds of the past and an uncertain future, each making painful discoveries about who to believe and trust. Masterfully told and laced with the sensuality and drama that Brenda Jackson does best, this is an unforgettable story of relationships at their most complex and how hard it can be to choose between living separate lives - or holding fast when love hangs by a silken thread.

Love and Dislike

I loved the story, I am a Brenda Jackson fan, however, the narration was painful. Hope this narrator isn't used again.

Narrator was HORRIBLE!!!

Ms. Jackson did her thing as usual. However, the narrator was HORRIBLE AND I DO MEAN TERRIBLE! She sounds just like Siri. Please for the love of God don’t let Carmen Jewel Jones narrator another book… EVER!

NARRATOR MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

The story was good but the narrator was robotic. I almost stopped listening to it. She had little emotions in the reading. A good narrator adds to a book.

Sad to see our people acting so badly!

I remember reading about this story that to me personifies the Jacks and Jillers of the Black community who have taken on the attributes of the snobbish Whites of society against our own people who are less affluent as they are. It never ceases to amaze me the lengths this mother went to to bring about the kind of outcome she wanted to see. I have always loved the story and the story line however the rendition of it by this narrator left much to be desired. Much of her rendition was as if I was reading the book for myself. There was no inflection of voice in places where in my mind there should have been at least that is how I recall reading this novel. It was a monologue that did not go with the story as I recall it. Otherwise, the book's content still remains a high point in my reading pleasure. Great job as always Mrs. Jackson. The narrator, not so much!

Never Use Narrator Again

The story was great!!!! But the narrator sounded like a robot. I found that speed 1.3x was the best it was going to get.
