Description
He Can "Do" Her Right. . .Aliesha is a dark-skinned beauty who seemingly has it all—a prestigious academic job, a respected role at church, and an adoring boyfriend. All she thinks she needs when she lands in Dante's barber's chair is someone capable of handling her natural, unchemically-treated hair. But her encounter with the handsome barber forces her to confront what's been missing from her life all along.. . .But Is He Mr. Right? Dante is a laid-back brother who isn't easily rattled. But everything about Aliesha—from her big-city attitude to her wild, defiant hair—begs his attention. His offer to work his magic on her hair sends both of their worlds into a tailspin. But does Dante really have what it takes to finish what he's started? "A thought-provoking look at contemporary African American life." —Booklist "Johnson's strong depiction of the characters allows each one to take shape and become life-like." —The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers "An enticing read." —Books2Mention Magazine"A five star new author!" —Mary Monroe

shortDescription
He Can "Do" Her Right. . .
Aliesha is a dark-skinned beauty who seemingly has it all—a prestigious academic job, a respected role at church, and an adoring boyfriend. All she thinks she needs when she lands in Dante's barber's chair is someone capable of handling her natural, unchemically-treated hair. But her encounter with the handsome barber forces her to confront what's been missing from her life all along.
. . .But Is He Mr. Right?
Dante is a laid-back brother who isn't easily rattled. But everything about Aliesha—from her big-city attitude to her wild, defiant hair—begs his attention. His offer to work his magic on her hair sends both of their worlds into a tailspin. But does Dante really have what it takes to finish what he's started?
