Overview

He Can "Do" Her Right. . .

Aliesha is a dark-skinned beauty who seemingly has it all--a prestigious academic job, a respected role at church, and an adoring boyfriend. All she thinks she needs when she lands in Dante's barber's chair is someone capable of handling her natural, unchemically-treated hair. But her encounter with the handsome barber forces her to confront what's been missing from her life all along.

...But Is He Mr. Right?

Dante is a laid-back brother who isn't easily rattled. But everything about Aliesha--from her big-city attitude to her wild, defiant hair--begs his attention. His offer to work his magic on her hair sends both of their worlds into a tailspin. But does Dante really have what it takes to finish what he's started?

    A Natural Woman-More Than Just Hair

    Lori Johnson's impressive second novel, Natural Woman, is a true page turner. Filled with many twists and turns you will find yourself hungry for more. The characters are written so real, you feel as if you know them. And in fact you do, because the author has taken snitches from everyday life-from the trash talk at Wally's Cool Cuts, to the snobbishness of upper-crust academia, Lori has managed to write a first rate novel about love, trust, and letting go of the past to accept a scary, but beautiful future. A true must read!

    A slow starter

    The book was well written but it dragged on longer than it could have. There were some parts of the book that I wish had been shortened and some parts of the story that I wish had been elaborated on. This book is worth reading but if you like books that take off from the beginning, you may not like this book. The book has its peaks and valleys.

    "...A moving story that will have you rooting for a happy ending."

    "A Natural Woman is a moving story that will have you rooting for a happy ending. The author has crafted a fast paced read that will pull on your heartstrings with the interesting characters portrayed in this engaging read."

    "Aliesha Eaton is a professor at Wells. She is a strong, intelligent and beautiful dark-skinned woman who wears her hair in its natural state. Aliesha is in search of a barber who can handle her natural, unchemically-treated hair. Thus, enters Dante, a gorgeous, laid back brother, who happens to be a barber with magical skills. He has a love for old school music and a peculiar habit of reading and collecting one particular book. Sparks fly and an immediate attraction is felt, however Aliesha nor Dante or willing to admit that something is brewing between them."

    "Aliesha already has a boyfriend and Dante is involved with a woman from his past that he just can't seem to shake. The question is...will the strong feelings developing between them be enough for Dante and Aliesha to leave their past behind and pursue a future together?"

    "This is an enticing read that will have your emotions running wild."
