Tony is young good-looking and successful, the ultimate ladies’ man. Everything about him, from his clothes to his apartment, to his uber-confident swagger is designed to be a trap for the women who catch his eye. Tony has no immediate plans except to advance his career and continue with his playboy ways. Then one day he meets Olivia, a beautiful plus-size executive, and he sees a way he can do both.
Olivia is new in town, but certainly not new to the ways of the player. She knows that no man can treat her the way she deserves so she doesn’t even try to find one. As far as she’s concerned, life is just fine without the complications of a boyfriend or God forbid, a husband. When she meets Tony, she sees him for exactly what he is, a playboy looking for a good time. She’s wise to his playboy ways but still, she wouldn’t mind spending a little time with him.
Tony and Olivia get together, each with their own agenda. Then, against all odds, something happens that changes them both…

GREEN EYES AND GOOD HAIR
The crowded diner hummed with the energy of the after-church crowd. It was still early, only around noon, but already the waitstaff’s starched white collars drooped and the bow ties the owner forced them to wear hung limp at their necks. Their soft-soled sneakers made little sound as they glided between tables and booths where men in dark Sunday suits and women in wide brimmed hats ate and drank with gusto after a morning spent in vigorous worship.
Tony Truman and his friends occupied a booth in a corner of the diner, as far from the din as it was possible to get but when he spoke his friends still had to lean in to hear his voice above the buzz.
“…and then when I finished doin’ my thing, home girl lay back chillin’, gettin’ all comfortable like she was wanting to cuddle.” He spat the last word out, as if it left a bad taste in his mouth.
He paused, and his companions leaned in closer to hear the rest of the story.
“Then what?” Curtis asked impatiently.
“Then what?” Tony repeated with a tone that implied the answer was obvious. “I gave her five minutes to catch her breath then I said, yo baby girl, you gots to bounce.”
“Damn brotha, that’s cold,” Jay said.
“Oh please! Give a chick an inch and she’ll take a damn mile. Next thing you know…”
“I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN.”
“THIS BOOK IS AMAZING…”
“A PAGE TURNER THAT WILL LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE!”
“THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL STORY.”
“COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN FOR ONE SECOND.”
