On the other hand. Stephanie Ivey, a free-spirited and seductive corporate diva encourages Kendra to string him along until she has landed a fat contract to handle all aspects of the congressman's public relations. While the girlfriends don't always agree, they do concur that life in Black Mecca is never dull and they are always exploring the next romantic adventure.

Meghan's Mr. Perfect, Noel Briscoe, has finally popped the question, but Meghan can't accept until she figures out how to deal with his shortcomings in the bedroom. Stephanie juggles some of the city's most eligible men with enviable case, but her dilemma is that she's never been quite romantically satisfied with any of them. But when Kendra is invited to create a campaign for a lush new Caribbean resort, she and her friends are about to discover more secrets about each other--and themselves.
