Mitchell Stone has had it! No more Mr. Nice Guy. Sick and tired of dates that end with a pat on the back, he’s decided it’s time to even his odds with the ladies and become the type of man they really seem to want: a mysterious, mischievous, deceitful Dog! With the help of his “Player” instructors, Tony and Trey, he’s dipping his toe into a stream of booty calls, baby-mamas, and sexual spin, winning over every woman who crosses his path!
Nikki Coleman has had it, too! The men in her life have been good for one thing: disappointment. There’s her high school sweetheart, Barry, a successful attorney who got someone else pregnant and derailed Nikki’s early hopes of marriage. Then there’s Jomo, a guitarist who’s great in bed—except Nikki’s not the only one he’s great in bed with. There’s Mitchell Stone, an old friend and fellow executive at her record company, who’s handsome but just a little too nice. Last but not least, there’s her father, Gene Coleman, who took a few years to acknowledge that, yeah, she’s his. Now that a case of sexual harassment has Nikki on the verge of losing her job and with it her entire career in the music industry, the lack of a strong man in her life is even more painful. She can survive on her own, but in her heart she wants a Mr. Right to stand by her side and help her ride out the storm.
Meanwhile, Mitchell is well on his way to becoming a real Player. With his handbook of “Dog rules” and a new, swaggering style, he’s attracting women left and right. He’s even got Nikki reconsidering their just-friends status. But has this Dog bitten off more than he can chew? And will Mitchell’s newfound womanizing ways come back to bite him before he and Nikki find true love?

How many times as women have we met a man that we thought was 'the one', only to be left behind with the nagging question of 'what in the hell just happened here'? Mitchell Stone, a financial analyst, and Nikki Coleman, an associate director in promotions, are both seeking solace in the dating game. Mitchell is looking for more than just a one night stand, he's looking for a committed relationship, while Nikki is comfortable with her nocturnal 'stress' relievers. Even though she and Mitchell have been seeing each other for a few months, he is jut too 'nice' for her. For that reason Nikki has never considered the two of them ever being more than just friends. Once confronted by Mitchell about their lukewarm friendship Nikki shuts him down without giving it a second thought, maybe losing out on the best thing that has ever happened to her. Tired of being rejected and placed in the 'can I lean on you for advice' category when seeking a meaningful relationship that lasts longer than a few hours, Mitchell decides to trade in his 'Nice Guy' qualities for the ultimate unwritten guide on how to be the best dog that you can be. Searching for the best professional help with his decision, Mitchell decides to put together a 'Playa's Ball' consisting of males who are known to possess the skills to enhance his next move. The only problem with this is all that glitters isn't gold, finding out what true playas really go through may not be as easy and rewarding as it seems. When I first read the synopsis was I hoping that the author would be able to shed some light on the issue of what triggers a man to become a dog without harping on which gender is to blame. C. Kelly Robinson has thoroughly enhanced 'No More Mr. Nice Guy' with personal perspectives from both the female and the male mind. The best part came when each character found themselves in positions where they reaped what they sowed. Positive or negative the finalities were on point and had me questioning my own contributions in previous relationships, reminding me that regardless of gender 'every dog has its day'. - Monique Baldwin-Worrell, founder of Flavah Reviewers
EXCELLENT!!!!! EXCELLENT!!!!!! I LOVED THIS BOOK. WHY DID MITCHELL FEEL THAT HE HAD TO CHANGE? IF NIKKI DIDN'T WANT HIM THE WAY HE WAS THEN THAT WAS HER LOST. NOT HIS. BUT I WAS GLAD THINGS WORKED OUT FOR MITCHELL, BECAUSE HE WAS REALLY IN LOVE WITH NIKKI. AND THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU, THAT NOT ALL DOGS GET THE GIRL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I AM ALREADY READING THE PERFECT BLEND.
This book had its good moments and it also had its bad moments. I got some good pointers on why men become dogs and some bad pointers on why they would perfer to become one of them. Women on the other had issues and situations. They really didn't know what they wanted out of a man. When a good men came he was thrown aside and considered a NICE GUY. This is just a nice book to read when you are bored.
