Publisher's Summary

Justin and Toni were friends.  

Besties, with a whole list of life rules developed over a friendship that started when they were kids. As long as they stuck to the rules, even when they blended a business relationship into the friendship, things went off without a hitch.  

But then one of them broke the rules - it was Justin. Justin broke the rules - and Toni has been mad about it ever since.  

She's spent the last several years traveling the globe to cultivate her business, but now she's back in town. Her only goals? Help her parents with "Mr. Bestseller's" signing at the store, help them pack up their house to sell, and get out of town without too much interaction with her former best friend.  

Mr. Bestseller has different goals.  

He broke the rules - no getting around that, and he's not trying to. His main goal now that Toni is finally home is to get her to hear him out...and get his friend back.  

Neither of them anticipated that the rift in their relationship would be the catalyst for seeing each other in a whole different light. But now that they do, they're wondering if it may be time to make some amendments to those rules.  

Or at the very least...bend a few.  

Contains mature themes.

Loved it… but…

This series was great. Unlike other black romance novels I’ve read, which are longer and cover more of the relationship, Mrs. Jones spends a lot of time on the development part- which is great, and equally frustrating. Toni and Justin are the most frustrating characters ever! Their indecisiveness and unwillingness to say how they really feel for a majority of the book made me want to put this down several times. But I’m glad I stuck with it because the end was very satisfying, and I’m glad She wrapped up Jason’s and Joseph’s stories too. Overall, good listen.

Christina C Jones did a good job with the conclusion of this series. Although it was great that everyone (all the supporting characters) got their HEA’s, this wasn’t as suspenseful as the previous storylines. I enjoyed the narration of both Sean Crisden and Adenrele Ojo as always, they did an excellent job! I look forward to more audiobooks from this author.

Cutest Story Ever

Great story, made me tear up and laugh a few times. I love Toni & Justin's chemistry... From best friends to lovers . **Round of Applause** Stop playing with the people you really love and let them know how you feel! I found Toni's character frustrating because she was so damn indecisive. Why would you lead someone on and keep pushing them away? ?You gave him all of your cookies and still couldn't make your mind up! The book is steamier than I imagined it would be! LOL Besides that, great love story. They really deserved each other.

Christina, you have gained a new fan with this series :)
