Overview

Essence® bestselling author Daaimah S. Poole brings you the sizzling tale of two ex-best friends who can't forgive, won't forget. . .and will find out what matters most. . .

Nicole and Tia just know nothing can break up their long-time friendship. But when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes along, Tia takes her new boyfriend's advice to sue Nicole's mother after a car accident. Soon Tia has a new home in South Carolina—and one furious ex-friend out to grab some of the good life for herself. And when wealthy businessman, Dre, starts burning up her sheets, Nicole sees a future as sparkling as the engagement ring she's expecting. . .

. . .until Tia turns up broke, with a new baby in tow. . .and news that Dre isn't the man he seems. Now, between lies, lust, and betrayal, Nicole must gamble on whom to believe, what she really wants—and a choice that may cost her everything. . .

Publishers Weekly
Childhood friends desperate for love square off over untrustworthy men in Poole's frantic if not totally satisfying latest (after A Rich Man's Baby). Nikki Edwards has had enough of lying men, especially after learning that her biological father, Raymond Hawks, has died without acknowledging her existence. She decides she's finished with “Married Man Malcolm” Walker who's strung her along for three years. Approaching 30, Nikki and her friends Reshaun and Tia face a crossroads. Reshaun decides to marry a Liberian after a whirlwind courtship, while Tia, a police officer, becomes pregnant with a thug's baby. An accident with a drunken Nikki at the wheel of her mom Lolo's car with Tia as a passenger disrupts their friendship when Tia sues Lolo's insurance company. Meeting single hottie Dre Hill seems like a dream come true for Nikki and wedding bells start to ring, but troubles suddenly escalate as sticky revelations about Dre's past cause major conflicts. Poole's rueful page-turner is diverting, and Nikki's emotional narration keeps it real, suggesting trust is always a work-in-progress. (Oct.)
