Even though Penelope Miller was raised in the South by a racist father once affiliated with the KKK, she can't ignore her attraction to black men. But she never expected to fall in love with one...nor did she expect her "interracial felony" to threaten their lives.

#20 - Why Do I Have To Think Like A Man?: How To Think Like A Lady And Still Get The Man
by Shanae Hall & Rhonda Frost
Ready To Up Your Game?
This page-turner leaves readers buzzing with oohs, ahhhs and OMG's from the first paragraph.
Written as a straight talk, no chaser retort to the Steve Harvey's runaway bestseller 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,' Shanae Hall's 'Why Do I have To Think Like a Man?' is a fitting resounding response regarding men, sex, relationships and women getting what they really 'reeeally' want. Finally … THE LADIES GET THEIR SAY!
As a Sirius Satellite Radio personality on Jaime Foxx's 'Foxxhole' and a former NFL wife appearing on 'E! True Hollywood Story, Sports Stars, Private Lives,' Shanae Hall doesn't shy away from life's difficult conversations. If it has to be said, Shanae will say it. And this book unequivocally proves the point.
In their own funny, fresh and bold way, Shanae and her co-author and mother Rhonda Frost, tell it like it is and like it most definitely is not as they hilariously chronicle their marriages, their divorces, and their dating of men from the NBA, NFL, and Hollywood stars to everyday rank-and-file guys who seem worthy. From engagingly different intergenerational perspectives, Shanae and Rhonda make it clear that the persistent 'player' mentality in today's men is fashioned, nurtured and created by the very women who hate it so much.
