From fabulous new author Jacqueline Jones LaMon, a sexy page-turner that follows the lives of two young, black professionals as they navigate career and romance, ambition and heartbreak. Two paths that meet by serendipity.
Nia Benson, a college graduate who dreams someday of running her own public relations firm, believes the world is her oyster. But Nia runs up against the harsh realities of corporate life and office politics when she is fired from a job she loves. For someone who has always had a plan and a purpose, Nia feels suddenly adrift, questioning her aspirations and sense of self. It doesn’t help her state of mind when Nia learns her long-time love is seeing someone else. She finds emotional release, however, in an unexpected place.
Seth Jackson is trying to make his way in the cutthroat music industry. After years of chasing one woman after another, he is finally ready to settle down. When he meets the mysterious, captivating Lauren at his best friend’s wedding, Seth falls hard and fast. He has no doubt: Here is the woman with whom he is destined to spend the rest of his life. Until a twist of fate and painful secrets threaten to tear them apart.
Facing the collapse of all that they believe in, Nia and Seth set out on separate journeys to find themselves. Along the way, their paths will criss then cross, through tears and laughter, as they uncover deep truths about who they are, what they need, and where their hearts really belong.
