Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In Morrison's disjointed latest, former madam Honey Thomas has come into $50 million of her former pimp Valentino's money, courtesy of semicrooked cop Sapphire Blue--who is pursuing her own agenda. Honey's new boyfriend, Grant Hill, is the first man to treat her well, but when he finds out about her past from his wastrel half-brother Benito, he's soon calling Honey all sorts of names and sleeping with single mother, stripper and aspiring actress Red Velvet. As Honey starts a group to help women who have been abused by men recover from their problems and get on their feet, Red Velvet is soon on the client list. In the meantime, Sapphire is also in love with Grant, the only man who ever treated her decently, and conspires to take him from Honey and pin the theft of Valentino's money on her. The plot bobs and weaves with the three women's and Grant's travails. Each preaches her own brand of empowerment, while all cut each other down over a man who never seems as special as any of them believe him to be. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Verdict: This follow-up to Sweeter Than Honey tells the story of one woman's relentless journey to reclaim her lost lover and her lost self-love. As Morrison reveals in her evocative, wise book, even those who find themselves caught in unsavory occupations and lifestyles yearn for true love. Essential for all adult urban fiction collections. Morrison's legion fans, as well as Zane readers, won't be disappointed. Note that the steamy, erotic scenes may offend those with more conservative tastes. Background: Honey, a former Las Vegas madam, has bought a mansion in Atlanta to house and help other reformed prostitutes. Besides jump-starting this charitable venture, she's also working to get her old lover back. Grant rejected Honey after his brother Benito--once a member of Honey's old operation--ratted her out as a prostitute at the height of their affair. But Honey's considerable passion drives her, and Benito soon learns that she is not to be played with. The jaw-dropping, cliff-hanger of a finale surely sets the stage for a sequel. Also included are reading group questions, a section of poetry and additional musings, and a sneak preview of Morrison's next novel, Single Husbands.--Vanessa J.
