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.

Yes, yes and yes!

Beautiful story about relationship struggles, and just being friends. This book was written sometime ago but is definitely still relevant today.

Boring...

I have always enjoyed EJD for years, but I am disappointed in this book. So boring. I had to stop. I'm choosing another book.

A Listen in Nostalgia

I have loved EJDs novels since I was in school and I have fond memories of listening to his books on tape. I listened to this in less than 24 hours and it felt good to hear the narrators, the old late 90s to early 2000s references. To hear good and relatable storytelling.

Different Characters....Same Narrators...Not good

Friends & Lovers is my favorite cook my the late Eric Jerome Dickey. The narrator's are horrible, one character speaking for multiple people..I'm not a fan at all!!!!

Enjoyable story

I could almost see the characters as they were nicely portrayed. Nice story that kept me listening to see what happens next. Thought it ended a bit too early. I wanted to see some loose ends tied up.
