She had 1001 reasons to say no...
They weren't enough.

Shemone Waters and Darnell Williams were best friends in high school. Smart, sexy Shemone didn't let the very mean streets of Harlem drag her down. But Darnell made one critical mistake -- and he was sent to prison because of it.

Now, at twenty-nine, the sistah's making a name for herself as a columnist for the hot African-American magazine Sister Soul Magazine. She's on the fast track up, with precious little time for romance ... or danger. And her carefully thoughtout "ten-year plan" is moving along without a hitch -- right up until Darnell Williams comes home.

Has he changed? Is Darnell a new man ... or just another ex-con temporarily back on the streets until another misstep puts him back behind bars? All Shemone knows is he's the handsomest hunk of dark chocolate to enter her life in an age, and this bad boy makes her feel soooo good! Following her heart for the first time ever could be the biggest mistake she ever makes and cost her the career and the future she's worked so hard for. But this could be love-hot, breathtaking, and real. And love is the biggest risk of all....

From Hunter Hayes, one of the most exciting new voices in African-American fiction, comes a moving and unforgettable novel of hard choices and new beginnings ... and the bold and beautiful chances the heart makes you take.

Loved this one. I always love when friends become lovers. These two were so opposite, yet so perfect for each other. Read full review
