Publisher's Summary

“Lennox spoke to a part of me that no man ever had.” (Magnolia)

Magnolia Baker could be considered the matriarch of her four younger sisters. They’ve endured tragedy and heartbreak together, with Magnolia protecting them no matter the cost. Her heart was made of solid gold and under lock and key. Shielding the part of her that had been broken by the one man who should have guarded it with his life is a top priority for Magnolia. No one has ever been able to penetrate the barrier until a smooth-talking, college English professor by the name of Lennox Clarke steps in to take a shot. 

Does Lennox have what it takes to secure the key to Magnolia’s heart or will his efforts be all for nothing? 

*Please note: This is Book One of a five-part interconnected series. Though each book can be listened to as a standalone, some parts of the storyline are ongoing.

Beautiful Black Love!

This book was beautifully written. I loved the positive representation of Black love. The family and friendship dynamics felt authentic and relatable. Magnolia and Lennox's chemistry was heady. They brought the heat! The author did a wonderful job of world building. She established secondary characters that am looking forward to learning more about and the character growth felt fluid. Overall the honesty, vulnerability, and support in this book was so fulfilling.

The narrators did a wonderful job of conveying emotion and passion. The dialect and dialogue felt genuine and easy. Their performances were swoony and I was swept away.

Loving Magnolia!!!

Magnolia was such a good book! I have to say I was a little worried because, I was not very impressed with the first book I read by Asia Monique but, she definitely impressed me with this one. When the book starts, Magnolia and Lennox have already established a friendship. But, because she struggles with rejection since her dad abandoned her and her sisters, Magnolia is very hesitant to move forward with anything more than friendship. Lennox, who himself is newly divorced, is extremely patient with Magnolia. He allows her to friendzone him, move at her own pace, and lets her come to him when she's finally ready to accept the love he wants to give her. Magnolia and Lennox together just worked. They had great chemistry and so much in common. I loved that there was absolutely no drama with this couple. They were two people who were attracted to each other but, one of them wasn't quite ready to jump the relationship broom. When Magnolia finally realizes Lennox is the real deal and he wasn't going anywhere, she let go of all her fears and they were able to just fall in love organically. But, Lennox's ex-wife tried it though. Homegirl was having some serious divorce remorse. If you don't miss what you have until it's gone was a person, it would definitely be Nina. Magnolia was a really sweet read. These two were just what the other needed. I couldn’t ask for more in a black romance.

Something’s missing

This had the potential to be a great opening book to a nice series but it didn’t deliver for me. The performances were GREAT.👏🏾👏🏾 I needed more from this story. Not enough background to build up to the underlying issues with the main character or any surprise reveals that make you definitely want to come back to read the rest of the series.

Great story!

This was my first story from Asia and I loved Lennox and Magnolia. I loved Magnolia and how strong she is. I liked how the message of communication was a big part of the story. Eboni and Benjamin did an amazing job with the narration. I am looking forward to continuing this series.
