Will Emily choose a relationship that doesn't satisfy her mind—or an easy compatibility that doesn't quite extend into the bedroom? Or is there some way she can find the best of both worlds?

shortDescription

"Griffin is a budding name in mainstream African American fiction." —Chicago magazine

After her father's death, Emily Yancy agrees to move back to her dead-end hometown. But she's dreading every minute she'll have to spend in her mother's tiny apartment. After all, she's a forty-three-year-old divorcĂ©e who's doing just fine on her own. There are some rewards for dutiful daughters though—like Aaron Merritt, a rich, single doctor with chocolate skin and bedroom eyes. . .

Aaron is soon taking Emily to fancy restaurants and inviting her to meet his family. But when the lights go out, something's missing. Enter Teddy Simms, Emily's eighth-grade crush. Teddy hasn't achieved what Aaron has—but he's picked up a few skills in other areas. Will Emily choose a relationship that doesn't satisfy her mind—or an easy compatibility that doesn't quite extend into the bedroom? Or is there some way she can find the best of both worlds?
