Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A virtual tour inside the mind, heart, and soul of a man whose experiences with women turn him cold, ruthless, and afraid of commitment.

A man known for avoiding relationships at all costs is forced to reconsider when a chance encounter with one of his “victims” and her young son sparks something in him he never anticipated: to seek forgiveness, from her and himself. The quest for that forgiveness opens up his life in ways no one expected, especially when he learns that he is the father of a seven-year-old boy, Gerald. When he discovers disheartening information about his best friend, Ray, he is once again forced to confront raw nerves and emotions.

     A Cold Piece of Work offers the rarest insight: a contemporary man revealing the depths of his emotions, vulnerabilities, and flaws. Readers who crave answers to the mysteries of the male mind will appreciate this unfettered, organic journey that lends honest, raw perspective and provides the how and why men act as they do in relationships.

Synopsis:

Readers who crave answers to the mysteries of the male mind will appreciate #1 Essence bestselling author Curtis Bunn’s raw, honest story about a man whose troubling experiences with women turn him cold, ruthless, and afraid of commitment.

Solomon Singletary has no interest in establishing substantive relationships with women and even prides himself on his ability to remain distant while still getting what he wants. Then a chance encounter with one of his “victims” and her young son sparks something in him he never anticipated: a desire to seek forgiveness, from her and himself. Winning back Michele could prove even more difficult than admitting he was wrong, and as Solomon opens his mind and heart in ways he never imagined, he also makes an alarming discovery about a close friend.

In this entertaining novel, Curtis Bunn offers rare insight into the raw emotions, vulnerabilities, and flaws of a contemporary man.
