Publisher's Summary

On the day he is supposed to propose to Amelia, things go tragically wrong, and Bodie ends up in the slammer with a conviction for manslaughter. Amelia can't believe Bodie is guilty, but she knows she's got to move on and find herself a better man. And just when she thinks she's found that man, Amelia finds out her new lover has more in common with Bodie than smooth moves.

Essence best-seller and book-club favorite Eric Pete returns with another seductive tale of love gone wrong.

Two thumbs up from Htown

I didn't know this book was set in Houston, but when I heard the names of familiar streets and parts of towns, I immediately perked up. This was an OUTSTANDING book that made me feel proud to call Houston home. Excellent plot, character development and visual clues. The language flowed effortlessly, making an enjoyable read. Kudos to the author.

NOT MY TYPE OF BOOK

I guess I'm not liking books where someone is sittin' in jail. I just can't get into it and am going to see about getting my coin back.

I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrators gave life to the characters and I was on the tip of my toes then entire book. The ending was very surprising.
