Men with fuck you money…
Keisha is a mistress, the side piece, the chick married men love to have sex with and lavish nice gifts upon before returning home to their wives. When her current sugar daddy unexpectedly dies she finds herself uprooted from the posh life her provided. Goodbye gorgeous high rise apartment, hello old bedroom at her father’s house back in Brooklyn. Only, that room is not exactly free for her to stay in.
Jayson is well aware of who Keisha is and what she is known for (Dating old men with money) The first and most obvious thing he notices about her is her beauty.
‘Keisha Crawford was definitely something. She looked Latina but not; Black but not. And beautiful , but also, not. Underneath all the parts that seemed to go together so well— long neck, full lips, dulce de leche complexion and dark hair that hung in thick ropes— was a stain, like anger, lurking behind her eyes. The eyes themselves were noticeable as well, heavy-lidded and sensual, like those of a woman who had been thoroughly and recently sexually satisfied . Bedroom eyes.’
She could easily pull any man she wants so of course he doesn’t get the whole sugar daddy lifestyle. As he gets to know her more and more Jay learns that there is waaay more to Keisha then what meets the eye.
Classifying Jay as a sexy unwanted distraction Keisha goes on the hunt for her next come up aka sugar daddy. Knowing she could have so much better Jay questions Keisha’s lifestyle…her actions…and her excuses.
Now I'll be honest both of the main characters are somewhat of a hot mess. Yet, Nia Forrester beautifully laid Keisha bare in this book. She reopened old wounds that were barely stitched shut. Keisha having daddy issues only being the beginning of a wounded heart, the author delves in to all things Keisha leaving no room for misinterpretation.
Without giving away his story I will say this in reference to Jayson; he carries hurt in his palms, bitterness on his shoulders and unforgiveness in his heart.
After learning so much about Keisha and Jayson the last thing these two ‘need’ right now is to be together. Nevertheless together is how they find themselves.
‘He was directly in front of her now and could look right into her eyes and see the fear in them. And when he touched her, holding her by the upper arms, just as they almost always did, tiny goose-bumps sprouted on her skin. “But you want me,” he said, lowering his head. “You want me. And I want you, too.”
WOW! By the end of this book I loved a character I once despised. Keisha grows but in baby steps. Forrester's writing is strong and compelling. Her characters? As real as they come! I look forward to continuing the journey that is Keisha and Jay!
