Overview

From Hunter Hayes — one of the most exciting new voicesin African-American fiction — comes a moving, unforgettable novel of thebold and beautiful chances the heart makes you take.

Smart, sexy Shemone Waters didn't let the very mean streets of Harlem drag her down. But Darnell Williams, her best friend from high school, made one critical mistake — and was sent to prison because of it.

Now, at twenty-nine, Shemone's on the fast-track up — a columnist for a hot African-American mag — and she has little time for romance or danger. But Darnell is coming home to throw her carefully thought-out "ten-year plan" into chaos. Is he a new man ... or just another ex-con back on the streets until another misstep puts him behind bars again? All Shemone knows is this bad boy makes her feel soooo good! And though following her heart could be the biggest mistake she's ever made, this could be love, hot and real. And love's the biggest risk of all ...

I read her first novel and I really enjoyed it and shared it w/my friends. This book is just as good as the first. Its very well written and kept my attention from beginning to end. It touches on love, friendship, family and more. Im looking forward to her next book! Go girl!

I don't usually read love stories, simply because I have a hard time relating. This book was unreal in a sense that it is the exact replica of the relationship I have with my soon to be husband, from the operator interrupting the call to the 3 years Darnell did in prison. It's a wonderful read for those of us left to stay strong on the outside waiting for that one special day when he says....I'm out, Can I come by?

I loved this book. I had read the first chapter in the store and just knew that I had to by it. I read the book in one day and I have to say that it is worth every penny that you pay for it. The characters are so real and you are able to relate to it. This is one of my favorite books and if all of Ms. Hayes' books are like this one I can see myself being a life long fan

It took me a little while to read this book because i didn't have the time, but it was a definite could-not-put-down everytime i had the chance to read. I relived my whole love story with my husband we went through the exact same things. I related very much and i loved it! a must read for all those who love the not so traditional love stories.

This book is not your regular romance novel. This book is actually good!! I finished this book in two days. It's more of an hip-hop romance novel. An excellent book!!

This book a Pair Like No Otha' by Hunter Hayes is the best book that I have ever read. I was looking for a book at Barnes and Nobles and I found this book. The cover looked very interesting and I read the summary on the back of the book and right away I wanted to read the book because it just seemed very interesting. I liked this book because the author brings out the characters to life, and they are so descriptive. And also because it had to do with relationships and even though they were different they found a way to be together. I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that just because you are two different people, it doesn't mean that it won't work out. And for anyone who like books about relationships.
