Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Men couldn't help but be drawn to her exquisite beauty and incomparable grace. But Thandy knew Dr. Jackson Gabrielle was different the minute they met. And indeed, Jack knew that this enchanting creature was meant for him, despite the fact that he was already married.

Thandy and Jack's decade-long affair might have been continued indefinitely, the hard-working attorney and the high-profile surgeon scraping together moments for each other out of their crazed schedules, if Thandy hadn't learned from Jack's bitter wife that he had taken up with yet another woman. Thandy moves on, leaving Jack in Atlanta for a big job in Chicago. Jack, used to getting everything he has ever wanted with ease, is forced to figure out what it takes to hold on to something he loves. And Thandy, having fought her whole life for everything she has achieved, realizes the true measure of her strength. But fate intervenes and sets into motion a series of events leading to a shocking climax that forever changes everything.




Goldie Taylor is a former broadcast and print journalist. She is an alumna of Emory University. Goldie is now a managing director at a public relations agency.

Review:

"Thandywaye Malone is a beautiful and educated woman with a rough upbringing that led her to leave home as a teenager. Subsequently, she got pregnant and married a caring older man who bankrolled their lifestyle on profits from his drug trafficking operation. After he got arrested, she was left on the streets. Now, in her 30s, Thandy has a high-powered job in Atlanta, but low self-esteem. In comes slick-talking Jackson Gabrielle, an old money, married-with-kids surgeon who sweet-talks Thandy into an affair. She eventually ditches him for an even better job in Chicago. Unfortunately, Jack is portrayed as such a louse (cheater, manipulative, woman-beater) that when he and Thandy get back together, the reader has no sympathy left for him. The choppy narrative and flat characters don't do the book any favors, either." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
