Listen to the book that spent 5 months on the Essence Bestseller List!
After her husband confesses to a racy but ultimately unfulfilling affair, Sophie Gibson's rage leaves her raw, unable to process his attempt to repair the damage by suggesting she have her own tryst.
Soon, though, the idea of sex as retaliation begins to intrigue her - a no-strings-attached, sexually subversive liaison may be just what she needs before she can forgive Andrew. Hooking up with Peter, a dark and dangerous artist willing to push the limits of Sophie's lustful, quivering need, fits the bill perfectly.
Sophie's covetousness for Peter was always about experiencing intensity in the moment, but soon the affair runs its course and now it's time for her to focus on her future...with Andrew. Except, Peter is convinced he can't live without her. Then come the cards, the presents, the calls...the hint of a threat. One way or another he will have Sophie. Even if that means exacting revenge of his own.
Their romance was a modern-day fairy tale: handsome older millionaire falls for struggling young waitress. Robert swept Elsie off her feet - and into his bed - put a huge diamond on her finger and spirited her away in his private jet destined for happily-ever-after.
Eight years later, Elsie Kolstadt realizes the clock has struck midnight. The five-star restaurants, exclusive address and exotic vacations can no longer make up for Robert's desire to control everything. From her hair to her music, Robert has things the way he wants them. No matter what.
But it's Robert's ultimate, unforgivable manipulation that finally shocks Elsie into action. Though divorce would strip her of everything, she can't live under his roof any more. Making her decision easier is Dion Carter, a high-school football coach with a heart of gold and a body of sculpted steel. Suddenly Elsie is deep in a steamy affair that could cost her everything - because Robert will stop at nothing to keep her under his thumb.
Book 3 in the "Getting" Series...
In just four short months, lucky-in-love Annelise is going to become a mother. But before she hits the delivery room, she’s got one last piece of business to take care of: hooking up her single girlfriends with a pair of sexy brothers on a special week-long getaway.
Lishelle and Claudia are more than ready for some no-strings-attached flings. And soon Lishelle and gorgeous, insatiable Kwame are setting the sheets on fire. Even back in Atlanta, the sex is amazing. So why is she still so bothered that her ex-boyfriend - the one she dumped—is getting married?
Meanwhile, Claudia can’t get enough of Rohan’s expert toe-curling, scream-inducing moves. But introduce him to her high-maintenance society friends? Puh-lease. Sure, he’s funny, smart and devoted—but without movie-star looks or a matching bank balance, he’s hardly Claudia’s ideal man. If that makes her a bitch, fine. She has an image to maintain.
But when tragedy strikes, it soon becomes apparent to the friends that they need to rethink what’s truly important in life. Because while a hard man is good to find, it takes more than luck to keep him!
