Leticia Langley is used to fighting for what she wants. That's how she wound up being the first in her family to graduate from college. So what if she's never had a date? All that's about to change when she gets herself a job as a food columnist for The Journal--and treats herself to a makeover that will transform her life.
With her hot weave and a dazzling new wardrobe that shows off her curves, the opposite sex suddenly takes a shine to Leticia. Except for Max Baldwin--a colleague who accuses her of trying to knock him down on her stampede up the corporate ladder. But Leticia is determined to stand her ground and get her due. And as she finds herself being offered more tantalizing prospects, including a trip to Africa, she also wins the respect--and admiration--of her handsome one-time nemesis, Max. Now she'll have to decide if she wants to let down her guard, and let in the one man she could get serious about.

Gwynne Forster was an award-winning, national bestselling author. She was also a demographer and former senior United Nations Officer, in which capacities she traveled the world.From Publishers Weekly:
Popular author Forster (A Different Kind of Blues) charts the course of a young African-American journalist, her love life and her eye-opening trip to Africa. Leticia Langley is a lucky young woman fresh out of college: not only has she landed a job as a food columnist at Washington, D.C.'s The Journal, she's been quickly promoted to features reporter. Meanwhile, however, Leticia's voluptuous best friend, her two-faced cousin Kenyetta Jackson, decides to make a play for Leticia's current crush. While Leticia's discovering Kenyetta's betrayal, she's also overcoming distrust of another potential love interest, Journal colleague Max Baldwin. An assignment about the roots of obesity in African-American women takes Leticia to Nigeria and Kenya, resulting in a renewal of her career prospects and passions, as well as the novel's best passages. Though hardly unusual to the genre, Forster puts a fanciful, prerecession gloss on Leticia's media world that keeps it several steps removed from reality. (Oct.)
