The things women will do–to men and to each other–in search of love

Veron Darcey is a twentysomething African American woman who wants it all: a successful career, an upwardly mobile life, and a loving, attentive man. But the last few men Veron has been with have either added her to their five-woman rotation or relegated her to the dreaded “just friends” zone.

After one particularly bad date, Veron caves in and asks her best friend, Demetria Sparks, to share her secrets. Demetria is a gorgeous woman who has something special–men line up to paint her toenails and lavish her with Caribbean cruises and diamond rings. Demetria tries to give Veron a mind-and-body makeover, but sweet Veron struggles with being aggressive. And when Demetria demonstrates her method on Veron’s dream guy, Seaphes, his lack of interest provokes her to pull out all the stops–and forces Veron into a fierce competition between mentor and student. With pressure (and sexual tension) mounting, Veron begins to wonder if changing herself is a mistake. But is it too late to back off her new game now that she’s gotten a juicy taste of just what she’s capable of?

I'm not sure if this book was boring or if I was just preoccupied while reading this, but it was so annoying, boring and I just couldn't get into it. It never was a page turner!! I wasted 2 weeks...Yes that's how long it took me to read this!!

not a great book, i won't necessarly rush to get another one but ok. the characters are interesting and it hits a nice peak toward the middle but they are a little too over the top in their roles. over all it was eeehhhh.

Cydney out did herself on this one. While reading you can't stop but yet you don't want it to end. This is a wonderful book.
