Description
When Melina moved into her apartment in Brooklyn, she didn't anticipate living with anyone - certainly not a man like Malik. Sexist. Crass. Obnoxious. Polar opposites. An attractive accountant with her own burgeoning firm, Melina's reserved nature clashes with Malik's carefree, single male lifestyle. Recently engaged to the successful Ellison, Melina begins to wonder if he can sustain her emotionally and then Malik provides Melina with the excitement she is missing with Ellison, leaving the roommates ponder why they came into each other's lives when they did.

display_description "Three years ago, when Melina Bradford moved into her brownstone apartment in Brooklyn, she didn't anticipate living with anyone; certainly not a man like Malik Denton. Sexist. Crass. Obnoxious. The roommates are a case of polar opposites. An attractive accountant with her own burgeoning firm, Melina's reserved nature clashes with Malik's carefree, single male lifestyle. After a year of living together, the roommates discover things about one another that would have been better left unsaid. Recently engaged to one of the most successful African-American men in the country, Melina finds herself questioning what her future will be like. Though Ellison Harlow III can provide Melina with financial security, she wonders if he can sustain her emotionally. Malik eagerly provides Melina with the excitement she is missing in her life with Ellison. With a wedding looming, the roommates ponder why they came into each other's lives and whether they can live without one another. They can't; and they won't."-- P. [4] of cover.
