Five Women. A Man. And a Plan.
Meet Marcus Brooks. He’s gorgeous. He’s successful. He’s the bestselling author of African American fiction. He’s also the most obnoxious male alive….
Meet Raylene, Naomi, Thelma, Gwena, and Latice. They are five women who belong to a reading group, strong women with strong opinions. They don’t take any grief from anyone (well, not if they can help it), and their friendships have stood the test of time. One night they meet up with bestselling author Marcus Brooks. At first they are in awe. Then they are puzzled. Next they’re enraged. How can a man whose books are loved by millions act like such a dog? Words are exchanged—-and more—-and they soon get in way over their heads. The book club takes Marcus captive—-and the longer they hold him, the more complicated things get. Can these five women rehabilitate the most arrogant author in the world and teach him a few lessons about life, writing, and women? He Had It Coming is a wickedly delicious novel, as shocking as it is hilarious—-a delightful send-up of fame and success.
