Overview

Never say never!

Dr. Isaiah Jones is engaged to marry Tia, the mother of his children and his girlfriend of twelve years. However, last minute doubts surface when he meets Imani Scott, the ambitious woman hired to decorate his newly constructed vacation home in South Florida. Imani's not the type to mix business with pleasure, but when the rich doctor offers her a fairytale love affair and financial security; will she become the death of Tia's happily ever after?

Chanell is ready to rid herself of her potentially psycho husband, Brandy fears her recently unemployed, live-in boyfriend might be cheating, and Coko thinks her heartthrob coworker may be interested in her for all of the wrong reasons. These four women will have to make some difficult, life-altering decisions by summer's end and everything they vowed to never do, has come back to haunt them. Will they stand up for what they believe in or will they succumb to life's biggest and most alluring temptations?

    Did I Do That?

    We all have them. You do. I do. They do. You know, the things we said we would never do. But as I was told many years ago by my mother and didn't quite understand until I got older - keep on living. That's right; keep living and you'll see that life will make a liar of you, or at the very least unsure of yourself as life will have you doing those very things you swore you'd never do. And if you haven't experienced it yet - keep on living!
    Circumstances have brought the characters of "The Things We Said We Would Never Do" to a fork in the road in their individual lives. Imani, Chanell, Coko and Brandy find themselves contemplating things they said they'd never do. Decisions to make; consequences to bear.

    I love a grown woman's book with grown women issues. The characters and situations of "The Things We Said We Would Never Do" are practical and relatable without the need for over the top drama. Too many books today characterize women with extremely low self esteem or lingering childhood tragedies (physical or sexual abuse) and use that to explain away how they ended up in predicaments, which is not always the case. I appreciated the fact that these were strong, intelligent women that still found themselves in less than favorable situations. It's happens. I also appreciate that the 'add man and stir' recipe was not the answer. For all these women, the answer was within.

    Okay, enough so that I won't give anything away. "The Things We Said We Would Never Do" was a great read. Wilson tackled many issues with their repercussions not being the aim. Instead she focused on the growth of the journey. There was a dramatic tone, but it was balanced with an uplifting element, which was refreshing. Kudos to writer A'ndrea Wilson for striking such an enjoyable balance. It was a rewarding read and one that I could easily recommend to others. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
