Janine A. Morris bursts onto the fiction scene with a page-turning novel featuring three smart, sexy African American divas: Dakota, Chrasey, and Jordan. Best friends since college, these thirty-something native New Yorkers have seen it all—or so they think. Because as they’re discovering, their wild school days have nothing on the dramas of adulthood... Do the thrills of youth have to end after a certain age? With her thirty-first birthday around the corner, Dakota doesn’t think so. She’s a successful marketing executive who still believes in sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Tyreek, her on-and-off man, is successful in his own right, making his money in the music industry. The idea of settling down has come up once or twice between them, but Dakota isn’t sure Tyreek is quite ready for that—although she’s beginning to think that she finally is. The challenge will be getting her lifestyle to line up with her dreams...
Chrasey has been happily married to Keith for nine years. They have two children and a house in Queens, but lately Chrasey senses problems. Keith’s not himself, and she’s feeling neglected. Chrasey is a firm believer in upholding her wedding vows, but after months of temptation from a handsome younger man, she finds herself becoming something she never thought she’d be: married and unfaithful. As much as Chrasey wants her old life back, some messes are easier to get into than out of... Jordan, the most sensible of the trio, has adopted the mother role, although even good girls have their demons. Jordan lives with her husband and son on Long Island and has worked hard for her success as a lawyer. But with a husband who didn’t sign up for glitz and glamour, Jordan has to walk a fine line to balance her personal and professional lives...a line that’s blurred when she begins spending too much time with a male colleague. Ultimately, Jordan must decide what her priorities are—but the wrong choice could cost more than she wants to pay. From the sweet to the bittersweet, life’s dramas will play out one way or another. And one way or another, the secrets these women share will strengthen the bonds of sisterhood that help them survive it all...

Reminiscent of Waiting to Exhale, this novel features three women, Jordan, Chrasey, and Dakota, who have been friends for many years. Jordan is a successful attorney struggling to balance work and family. Chrasey is married to Keith, her first and only partner, and Dakota is the single publicist not looking for a serious commitment and not trying to make one. Jordan's world begins to fall apart when her husband of six years, Omar, insists that she spend more time at home with their son and demands that she end her friendship with male friend Jayon. Chrasey's life becomes complicated when she begins an affair with Trevor, a younger man who shows the kind of interest her husband no longer does. Dakota's lifestyle changes when she becomes pregnant by former NFL player Tony, who is unwilling to make a commitment. Through all of their personal trials, the women are always supportive and honest with one another. They each discover the error of their ways and are forced to reevaluate their lives, partners, and futures. Lillian Lewis
