Publisher's Summary

How does a man handle the risk-taker, a no-nonsense type of woman such as Zafirah? The one who seems so well put together on the outside but won’t let anyone within an inch of discovering what’s inside. Without a doubt, Zafirah is a daddy’s girl and in her eyes has the perfect role model as a father, which makes it hard for any man to compare. Is her heart even capable of allowing another being to direct her steps? Does she even want to be handled? Her passion for designing clothes and opening a boutique is all she’s worried about until her heart takes a turn when she realizes the chemistry that she and Troy share.

Mr. Champion, Zafirah’s father, regards Troy as his son. Will the close-knit relationship they share be a stumbling block for Troy and Zafirah? Is Troy what Mr. Champion envisions for his daughter? Will Zafirah and Troy go against the grain to be with one another?

Troy Cunningham is an example of a man who can overcome any obstacle and still succeed despite the statistics. He went from dealing in the streets to owning a successful business, and his growth as an evolving individual shows daily. However, hardships later plague him, and his heart is on the line. Will he continue to win in the game of life?

“Please.... When you have me all to yourself, you don’t know what to do.” (Zafirah)

“I missed you too Zee, so stop flexin’ all the time.” (Troy)

Great Read!

I loved this book! It was good to catch up with some of the characters from the Bennett Series. Wesleigh and Emmanuel didn't disappoint as usual! Can't wait for the next installment.

Good

I live this author and had never read thus series before. This book was good. I live the chemistry that Z and Troy had.. After listening to this I purchased and read the remaining books in this series and can't wait for the others to hit Audio.

Story was all over the place

The story was very disjointed and hopped around a lot. Story lines and plots ended abruptly with no real closure. If not for the amazing narrators I would not have finished the book.

Long and boring

I don’t know what I just listened to for 8 hours. I wasted a credit.

The bar is high!

Such a great start to a series. The main story is solid and she did a great job preluding the background of the other characters for the series. The side stories are good but some don’t feel complete. Still a good story line and worth the purchase. Now I just wish Audible would produce the remaining three books already!

Just okay

The book jumped all over the place which made the book confusing. The narrators really saved the story, if it wasn’t for them I would have stopped readying. The book seems as if it’s just a bunch of ideas that aren’t pieced together.

Great Performance, Blah Storyline

As usual Wesleigh and Emmanuel were great but this storyline was just blah. It was a friends to lovers type of situation which isn't bad, but overall the book content and characters just didn't wow me.

LOVED it!

I really enjoyed this listen. The author added life lessons and little gems that are very relevant today. And of course the steamy scenes were on point!👀 I enjoyed her writing style and will be looking for more of her books asap! Of course this narrating duo brought this book to life and had me playing this movie in my head. Great job as ALWAYS Wes and Manny!!
