A Wonderful Plot!

Victoria Small took a year off from men in order to have some peace. She was hurt by a man in the past, and has been 'gun-shy' ever since. Feeling like she's back on track, Victoria is finally ready for the perfect mate. And, lucky for her, fate hears her request and...
Victoria Small took a year off from men in order to have some peace. She was hurt by a man in the past, and has been 'gun-shy' ever since. Feeling like she's back on track, Victoria is finally ready for the perfect mate. And, lucky for her, fate hears her request and presents her with two very different men to choose from.

Ted is the boss at ViaTech where Victoria works. This telecommunications powerhouse is run by Ted - who not only exudes power and diplomacy, but also has the most beautiful ocean-blue eyes that every woman in the office wants focused on them. One morning, he arrives in Victoria's office to let her know that he is nominating her for the Executive Mentoring Program. He believes that Victoria has the 'chops' to be a huge part of ViaTech's management team. Sadly, Victoria turns him down. She is almost ready to quit her job and work full-time on her event-planning and catering business called Divine Occasions. This is the only thing she's wanted to do, and she's ready to achieve success.

Now, Ted has never been turned down before - by anyone for anything - and this sparks his interest. Slowly, over time, he begins to open up to Victoria and wants with all his heart to become a bigger part of this amazing woman's life.

While eating at The Cheesecake Factory - after a horrific workday that is filled with Patricia Clark, a horrible woman who not only wants the nomination to the executive program, but also wants to woo Ted, herself - Victoria stares at a table where a gorgeous man is dining. His ebony skin and stunning smile make Victoria want to leap out of her chair until, of course, a woman sits down beside him. The 'Gorgeous One' is Parker - a surgeon in Atlanta - who will soon become another huge part of Victoria's future.

From a love triangle that will have readers completely intrigued, to a friendship that speaks volumes about caring and love, each and every scene locks readers to the page. This author has written a stunning story that not only spotlights the love factor, but brings to the forefront issues such as racism and biracial relationships. A well-layered novel. Enjoy!

Ohmyfreakingosh!! I wish they both had left Victoria dumb confusing ass. She was too old to be so damn confused. Also the author spent too much time on wrong relationship. I'm too afraid to read the sequel because I'm sure the author continued this wrong focus. UGH!

Ohmyfreakingosh!! I wish they both had left Victoria dumb confusing ass. She was too old to be so damn confused. Also the author spent too much time on wrong relationship. I'm too afraid to read the sequel because I'm sure the author continued this wrong focus. UGH!

The supporting characters, the good & bad ones, were great.

It's not a bad book, it's just that I'm waiting on authors to create a smart IR book with the black woman being an adult and not a 33 year old confused girl and not a whore trying to get her freak on. (VICTORIA WAS DEFINITELY NOT A WHORE IN THIS BOOK?)

The book is 283 pages once you take away the plubishing, aknowledgements, and etc.

    The writing was not bad but the female lead annoyed me. I started to wonder if she was capable of making a decision.

    Good; not great

    The author does a good job at building tension between the triangle, but I felt that something wasn't quite right. I can best describe this feeling as a lack of authenticity of many of the characters. I wont go into too much detail ( no spoliers here) but the decription of some of the characters and the lines they spoke, didnt match. That said, this was an enjoyable read, but I just wanted more.

    Grow up before you show up

    don't judge by the three star rating...trice hickman wrote a good story...two good, fine, prosperous men..how many of us get that choice...and given the choice, how many of us could decide in a reasonable manner using love and a vision of future as our guide?!...was this girl just too young and spoiled to enjoy what was being offered?...or was her wishy washy nature meant to enhance the reading?..blah, blah, blah about race...who cares when love is real and you are adults......at any rate, i don't think i want to read the sequel...this was good enough for me...
