Publisher's Summary

Mary B. Morrison, acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of Darius Jones and The Eternal Engagement, proves herself a masterful storyteller with this gripping new novel about an obsessed man and what he will do to make sure he gets the woman he wants.

Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now.

Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. She’s captured his heart, and he’ll do whatever is necessary not to let her break it. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her see that.

Mary B. Morrison has joined the ranks of African American women writing about what women of any ethnic group want to read about: how to find - and keep - your soul mate. Her writing style is both excellent and very erotic. She lives in Oakland with her son.

Narrators Made THe Story

Would you consider the audio edition of If I Can’t Have You to be better than the print version?

yes. Audio version brings story to life

If you’ve listened to books by Mary B. Morrison before, how does this one compare?

NO

What does Nicole Small and Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

they help the listener to better understand the entire book.

If you could rename If I Can’t Have You, what would you call it?

The Real Housewives of Houston

Any additional comments?

the narrators should be the same for the entire series. <br/>the series should be available as a bundle. <br/>They should have the same title with a little variant. <br/>If I cant Have You : Granville Story <br/>If I cant Have You : Madison's story and so on<br/>

Amazing. The synopsis does it no justice.

This book was absolutely amazing it had me at the edge of my seat from chapter to chapter the voice performances were amazing and really captured each character. I am going right now in search of part two.

Comical

While I enjoyed the story line, the flow was horrible. Soo many pauses waiting fur the male character's part to speak. But I found Granville's character to be slap stick stupid funny.

Frustratingly silly unrealistic!

This book started out rather interesting until "the bet" came along. I mean, come on, what are we, in grade school??? I listened until the end and was ultimately disappointed. I have no desires to even want to listen to the books to follow...ugh! :

Nice & Interesting

Loved the status and lifestyle they lived. How she mixed in spiritual with sensual. The sexual descriptions was off the chain. Mary B showed her specialties yet again.
