Publisher's Summary

From the number-one Blackboard best-selling author of Cheaters comes this story of two couples looking for lasting love. Friends and Lovers is filled with the colorful dialog, vivid characters, and sophistication that have become Dickey's trademarks.

Leonard and Tyrel are close buddies, Debra and Shelby are best girlfriends. When Debra meets Leonard, she has just decided to give up the singles game. Any man who wants her will have to want marriage, too. Shelby, on the other hand, is instantly attracted to Tyrel. Eager to be together, they don't want to consider the consequences of their haste. As each pair searches for the key to happiness, they find that the answer will depend on acts of love, not ideals. Sassy and sexy, set against the glittering backdrop of Los Angeles, Friends and Lovers explores all the angles of big-city romance.

Loved it!!!

Get storyline! I loved all of the characters. They all made me laugh. The narrators were very good. They all made it seem like I was there. My favorite part in the book was when Shelby got rid of her fiancé Richard.

Good Story/Spoiler Alert!

This was a good story. I liked each of the characters, except Shelby I disliked her character so much, and not just because of her lie, because, in my opinion, she wasn't the right lady for him. They were not equally yoked. I know, Ultimately it was her decision, I just couldn't get pass her deceit.😔

A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

YES, I LOVE BOTH NARRATORS THEY ARE ALWAYS GREAT.

If you could take any character from Friends and Lovers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I WOULD TAKE TYRELL OUT BECAUSE HE SEEMS LIKE A WONDERFUL MAN WHO KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS AND KNOWS HOW TO TREAT A LADY. I SO ENJOYED HIS CHARACTER AND HIS LOVE FOR SHELBY.

Any additional comments?
