Kiss The Year Goodbye by Brenda L. Thomas, Daaimah S. Poole, Crystal Lacey Winslow, Tu-Shonda L. Whitaker

Kiss the Year Goodbye

New Year's Eve is the time to make a naughty resolution, so shed your inhibitions and indulge in this sultry collection of escapades from four of the hottest writers around.

In Brenda L. Thomas's "Every New Year," a shoot-out lands a respected doctor in the hospital with a bad case of amnesia, and in the care of a man too sexy to resist.

In "Whatever It Takes" by Tu-Shonda L. Whitaker, a sassy older woman tries to break off her steamy relationship with her best friend's twenty-three-year-old son, but he shows her he's man enough to fulfill her needs.

Crystal Lacey Winslow proves you can be "Dangerously in Love" when a prim and proper young woman's wild side takes over after the man she's dating slips up with another woman.

In "My Boo" by Daaimah S. Poole, a Philly girl's long-distance boyfriend never has time for her — not even around the holidays. So when her ex-roommate's latest lover comes knocking, she's ready to get the party started.

This book was so good. I couldn't put it down. It is worth every penny, every character was interesting to read about. I only thought that 'Dangerously in Love' should have been last because the next story I couldn't start to read until I got this story from out my mind. Crystal C. Winslow needs to do a sequel for this book. This story was worth alot more pages because it had a little mystery and suspense in this story that can be taken to another level. I can't believe that London couldn't figure out this girl was crazy. I knew she had a multiplepersonality when Jovie/Jada came home one day from work to clean the apartment finding toys and things scattered everywhere and she said Jada was coming home, but didn't come.Also, when her doctor call that gave you a clue into her personality. Well, I can give London some points for trying to be a good man. He wanted to stay faith to her. He did show that he can be a good man. Sometimes during reading this book like London had something wrong with him. He gave you so many emotions that you was really trying to figure out. In 'My Boo' I am glad that Gina got her act together. She could have lost a good thing.

Does she desire what was left between or is she enjoying life not remember what her old life held for her...what about that new found man in her life...Dangerously in Love, shows just how dangerous love can be...this story has a lot of twists and turns...the ending will be the ultimate surprise...My Boo, sometimes we think that the old boo is just that old and we want something new and more exciting...well read this story to see if the grass is greener on the other side, or if we have to mow that also....Four great stories by four great authors...
