Kimberla Lawson Roby. I said, walking into the entryway. I’m sorry to stop by so late, but I promised Brianna I would bring her package to her. No problem. That girl has been waiting for you all night. That girl has been waiting for you all night anatic. Auntie Taylor, Brianna said, rushing down the stairway, smiling. Hey, sweetie, I said, hugging her and kissing her on the forehead, and she reached for the UPS box I was holding. Let me see, she said. Will you wait for me to try it on? I won’t leave until I see you model it. Brianna skipped back up the stairs.

In this witty, rollicking, deeply poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels bestsellers. Kimberly wrote a story that sounds like lives of some women in every race and every city that deals with similar issues in their lives. This book was a page turner (I actually picked it up to read Friday and I'm done) and demonstrated drama between Black women in a way that was more appealing than ghetto.

Meet Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse, three women who have been best friends since high school. However, this devoted troika is about to discover a wave of unexpected troubles.

Whitney is a plus-size woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who will stay put.

Taylor is in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who's allergic to commitment.

Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she really wants—or needs.

Then suddenly Charisse spins out of control. Her doormat husband manages to stand up to her and even threatens to go public with a very shady secret Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, especially from her interfering mother. Desperate, she decides that only a very risky scheme will save her.

One constant for these women has been the support they've offered one another. But this time, how far can friendship go?

In this witty, rollicking, deeply poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels bestsellers.

Whitney, Charisse, and Taylor have been best friends for most of their lives. And although Whitney and Charisse have known each other the longest (since childhood), it certainly seems as though they have known their beloved friend Taylor just as long. All three, however, are facing challenges in their personal lives...but will their friendship survive?

Gorgeous, smart, and fat, Whitney has had lifelong struggle with her weight. With an equally skinny and critical mother and sister, it has taken everything that she has to maintain a modicum of self-esteem. But one day--with another decision made to diet and exercise and lose weight--Whitney meets the delectable Rico in the health club. At first Whitney refuses his advances...how can someone like Rico be attracted to a fattie like her? But Rico is relentless, and after several days of mindblowing sex and constant attention, Whitney lets her defenses down and allows love in....so why is something telling her that it may blow up in her face after all?

Charisse is losing control; at home, at church, and with her friends. After years of dominating and controlling her submissive husband Marvin and their children, Marvin has decided that he has had enough. He will do what he wants and when he wants to...and only on his terms. Charisse is shocked and outraged, and turns to her pastor for help...after all, what is a decent, God-fearing woman to do when her husband has lost his mind? Pastor Damon has certainly proven himself good for the soul...and the body. Charisse has declared war on Whitney, Marvin, and her Mama; the latter for being hateful and abusive and raising her to be the same way. One final confrontation with mother Mattie has Charisse facing the biggest challenge of her life....will her friends be there to see her through?

Taylor seems to have it all; money, smarts, looks, a successful career and a great boyfriend in Cameron. She has fabulous friends in Whitney and Charisse, and since they are constantly feuding she has become the social equivalent of Switzerland as of late. All seems right in her world...if only she could get Cameron to stop dragging his feet about thoughts/talk of marriage. Soon Taylor finds herself facing a health crisis, the conclusion of which will reveal shockings truths about her relationships and those closest to her.

With the edge-of-your seat reading that we have become accustomed to receiving from Ms. Roby, this one does not disappoint. Readers will be shocked and intrigued until the very last page.

I first read this book many years ago and loved it. I often wondered about Taylor, Whitney and Charisse and what their stories would be today which made me pick it back up and read it again. I have to say, that it's even better reading it the second time around. The characters were a bit over the top, but that's classic Kimberla Lawson Roby. I'm hoping that she'll revisit these characters again in a sequel.

Truly a heartfelt real to life situations. Abuse, neglect as a child that goes over into adulthood, dealing with women issues within our health as well as dealing struggling for acceptance from family when you have been obese all of your life. Last but not least dealing with betrayal after thinking you are the only one in your fiance's life, only to find out he has a whole family, complette with wife and 2 kids. All levels that the average person can identify with. Enjoyed it from start to finish although there were periods of sadness at the same time.

Wow, what can I say that other reviewers haven't already said? This has to be by far her best work yet!! To have a novel that captures your attention within the first five pages is amazing! The book makes you feel as though you are sitting right there with the characters. This is book is not only thought provoking but really brings us into the mind of a "functioning" mentally ill woman who only practiced what she was taught (Charisse). Bravo to you Ms. Roby and hurry up with the next title.

Great novel. Enjoyed all the characters! There were some sad moments and laughable. Some characters I hated some I loved. It also relatable.

Kimberla Lawson Roby is an excellent writer. I really love her books. I own all of her books exccept for "Love and Lies", (I plan on reading it later) Anyway the characters were realistic with real life issues. The topics discussed were serious issues that some women face today. There is a lesson to be learned from each character's lives. The author did at good job of introducing the characters to the readers. I was shocked at what happened towards the end. I could not believe what a particular character did even though they were capable of doing it. Then the other was not that suprising because their were clues throughout the book, but I was surprised at the extent of it. I recommend this book to anyone who want more than just a fairy tale. I would love to see a part two to this book as well.
I have not read the book completely because of the explicit sex scene in the first few chapeters. I am a Christian and I enjoy Christian fiction because its intersting and has a good message without all of the worldy, sinful content. This book just went a little too far. I am not a happy reader.
