Overview

How do you measure the worth of a woman? Or determine the value of a man? In this sexy, suspenseful novel, Cheryl Faye takes on the hot-button issues facing men and women as they struggle to build meaningful, lasting relationships.

In this novel about two friends -- and the man who plays a key role in both their lives -- Cheryl Faye tells a compelling story of friendship, jealousy, ambition, self-deception, and love.

Jamilah Parsons and Sabrina Richardson are roommates and unlikely friends. Jamilah is a voluptuous, down-to-earth graphic artist who knows what she wants -- a man to love her for herself. Gorgeous and model-thin, glamorous Sabrina is beset by doubts and insecurities. She uses her beauty to reel in the kind of man she thinks will give her the good life, without having to give anything in return. When Sabrina brings home sexy attorney Darius Thornton, the stage is set for conflict and drama. Jamilah is attracted to Darius; but Darius only has eyes for Sabrina, who is determined to keep him at arm's length until she has him right where she wants him. Then she meets someone even better -- or so she thinks. What she doesn't know is that beneath this new suitor's suave exterior is a man filled with pain, ready to lash out at those closest to him. Now Sabrina must discover a courage she never knew she had, while Jamilah grapples with her own complicated feelings for both Sabrina and Darius.

Intense, provocative, and intricate, Be Careful What You Wish For introduces complex, flesh-and-blood characters that readers will relate to, root for, and remember long after the final page.

The book was excellent -- I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. We all would love to be introduced to a man like Darius -what a gentlemen. A great book to read while relaxing at the beach/pool this summer. Can't wait to read her next novel, 'Necessary Work'

I Just Happen To Be Surfing The Net& Ran Across This Book. It Was A Very Interesting Read. I Enjoyed The Way The Characters & The Story Unfolded. I Was Starting To Wonder about The Character 'Darius', Because He Was A Little Slow Making His Move On Jamilah.The Author Did A Wonderful Job With Her Story, Cant Wait To Read More Of Her Work.
