Novelist Marcus Major creates this sexy, sharp-witted story of love and the dating game in the style of Eric Jerome Dickey. Set in African-American and Latino communities, Good Peoples looks beyond a man’s bravado to his longing for that special someone.
Tired of the dating scene in suburban Philadelphia, 29-year-old Myles Moore is waiting for the right woman. He fills his days with basketball, teaching grade school, and “good peoples,” but his buddies always get on his case about his lofty standards in females. When he meets beautiful Marisa Marrero, a black Latina lawyer, he knows she is the woman of his dreams. But Marisa is all too human—ambitious, self-sufficient, and with her own views of romance. With Marcus Major’s ear for authentic dialog and Peter Francis James’ dramatic performance Myles and and each of his exuberant friends step from the pages.
It took me forever to get thru this book; it seemed to drag on forever. I'm not sure if it was the narrators or just the story line in general. If you have time to waste, it's fine but I caution you that you just might fall asleep as I did several times.
Really enjoyed this book. First one by Marcus Major I have listened to. Good book, typical romance novel which I love
