Black Fiction Addiction Author Interview 

"This story could be called “the black version of Sex & the City”, but it’s much more than that. Yes, we see a group of friends who go on a trip, buy shoes (which I love!!) and tell their stories with a glass of wine in their hands. However, the plot highlights the union between friends, family values ​​and how love always wins over fear. This is my first book by this author, and it won’t be the last." -- Harlequin Junkie

"Love is what drives everything—whether we are searching for it, reeling from a lost one, or happy in the relationship we’re in, or anything in between. So, when I write about romance and love, I see it as part of the revolutionary act of simply telling those stories"
