My thoughts:
Tamika hooked up with Quincy pretty quick in the beginning of this book.  He was a total stranger and he brought her home.  He "conveniently" left his coat in her house and had to come back to get it. Meanwhile she is upstairs pleasuring  herself in her bathtub.  He can hear everything, but she doesn't know that he is standing outside her door until she hears him knocking.  She lets him in.
I bent over and picked up his jacket from the back of my living room chair.  I didn't get far up before I felt his massive erection poking my ass.  Quincy leaned over as I gasped at the feeling of a man this close to me. p. 29
Tamika and Quincy start seeing each other after that.  Tamika's friend saw Quincy with another woman, but she didn't want to believe it.  Then she started getting weird deliveries, people showing up at her door, then there was the keychain. 

I read this book and one sitting and really enjoyed it.  I look forward to the sequel!
4 out of 5 diamonds!
