About the Author

Raynetta Manees was born and raised in Detroit, and is a graduate of Wayne State University, with a BA degree in Mass Communications. She retired as a Federal government executive administrator after a 28 year career. Raynetta now writes full time.

Raynetta is the best-selling author of three digital books (eBooks) and six print published novels. Raynetta is currently working on her seventh print novel.

Raynetta’s love affair with the fields of entertainment and communication started at age five, when she began her performance career as a vocalist. She has performed as a solo artist in numerous venues in Detroit, Chicago, Lansing, and the Caribbean.
Her singing rapidly led to stage performances in musicals, which in turn led to numerous non-musical acting roles. Raynetta was a 1994-1996 member of the Board of Directors of the Riverwalk Theater of Lansing, Michigan, and she has appeared on the Riverwalk stage in several productions, including "West Side Story", and was the leading lady in the Afro-American drama "Sty of the Blind Pig." She also appeared in the role of Mrs. Murphy in the Pulitzer Prize winning play "JB" at the Spotlight Theater in Grand Ledge, MI.

Raynetta’s acting led to an invitation to do commercial radio, and she was for two years an on-air personality on AM 1180, WXLA, in Lansing. Raynetta has also performed in radio and television commercials.

Still an admired and well known songstress, Raynetta was the 2009 winner of the Millennium Award for the Best Female Vocalist, and the 2011 winner of the Stallworth Award.

Raynetta Manees currently resides in Michigan with her significant other Douglas (AKA “Dougie Fresh”), a Registered Nurse (R.N.). She has an adult daughter, Tiffani, and grandchildren college freshman Zayna, and first grader Jeffery (AKA “Jellybean").

This is a fabulous book! It is very unusual for a romance as there are two men involved and you don't know which one she will pick until the very end. Keeps you involved--anoher one you can't put down! Very deep characters who sometimes make strange moves moves, but Manees gives you the background oneach person so that you understand why they didi what they did and it is very believable. I liked and sympathized with Shay, and also got mad at her a points. Woody was every woman's dream, and I lusted for Ric, although I felt sorry for him too. I'm a big Manees fan but hadn't gotten around to this book until now. I was not disappointed. You won't be either!
