Unless it’s under reconstruction…never close your heart.

Essence best-selling author Monica F. Anderson delivers a delightful, stand-alone sequel to her acclaimed novel "When a Sistah’s Fed Up" in this humorous and heartfelt story about love, family, and the power of forgiveness…

Ambitious and beautiful, Faith Henry is a savvy woman. By all measures-her career, friendships, and financial accounts-she is certifiably successful. Right? Not so fast. She’s hopelessly entangled in the ties that bind: Her millennial daughter, Sloane, has returned to the nest with an electronic ankle monitor, gender-fluid child, meek husband, and very bad attitude. Her son, Trey, is in a relationship with an older woman who has questionable motives. Friends are tsk tsking Faith’s choice to replace her decades-long significant other with a series of online mismatches-and that longtime manfriend is wasting no time moving on.

Things are so bad, even her ex-husband is a friend. And she’s tempted to grant him benefits.

How did this happen? Ten years ago, vowing to control her own destiny, she left her marriage and career in politics. She strategically crafted and executed a fail-proof plan to build a new life. Her life. On her terms. Those goals are almost within her grasp. As the talent behind the popular Never Close Your Heart podcast, Faith’s insightful advice is increasingly going viral. She’s attracting the potentially lucrative attention of a media conglomerate-complicated by the not-so-welcome overtures of a menacing superfan.

As her followers can attest, Faith’s superlative advice about relationships is unequaled. Amid the swirl of drama, controversy, and danger that threatens her and her family, will she heed her own words?
