Goodreads description:
For best friends Mike, Max, and Ahmad, the bonds of friendship, love and respect, are put to the ultimate test as each one of them is forced to take a long, hard look at themselves, and the women they love. They all said their 'I do's', but did they really understand what it meant?
Mike's a bonafide ladies man. He's smooth, sexy, and he's got all the right moves. There's just one problem- his wife, Mya. She knew what she was getting into when she slipped his ring on her finger, but she'd always hoped that her love would be enough to quench his desire. But now that she's finally admitted that Mike can never be tamed, who will she turn to for comfort? And how will Mike handle it?
Max is a music mogul in the making, and with his wife, Trina's support, he's bound to succeed. Of course that all depends on what happens with Sharon, who could write a book and give seminars on what it is to be a true ghetto queen. Ahmad is a born-again virgin only he can't figure out why. No matter what he does or says, his wife, Shay, refuses to be intimate with him. But what happens when her decision to confide in him is too late?

My thoughts:
Mike is married to Mya. He always comes home to her, but is out having sex with other women. She finds comfort in talking to his friend Ahmad, maybe too much comfort...

Ahmad is married to Shay. He never fools around on her, but hasn't had sex with her in months. She has some emotional issues and is not ready for it, but it is straining their relationship. He is a teacher and one of his students, Maxine tried to kiss him. The principal walked in in threatened to blackmail him unless she sleeps with him. She was threatening his job, but he was not going to have sex with her. He didn't know what to do.

Then there is Max who is married to Trina. He fools around on her with her mom.

There is a lot of drama in this book, but the author really does a great job building the characters and making you feel like you really know them. He really knows how to entertain a reader.

I gave this 5 stars!


  1. Yes, he sounds like he writes a great story! Have you read all of his by now?

  2. Sounds a bit complicated doesnt it?

  3. Yes very complicated! No, haven't read all his books yet, but I will!
