Yazmeen Williams is a busy woman. The former professional dancer is a church Administrative Assistant by day and the mother of three-year old twin boys, always. What she isn't, is interested in love thanks to a monster of an ex-husband who's a danger to the well-being of her sons. When retired NBA player Tavares Alvarez enters her life looking "utterly orgasmic," that disinterest is severely challenged as is her hold on celibacy. But he'll need to gain her trust, or her phone number first. With Yazmeen, neither will come easily.

Tavares has had zero relationships, but more than his share of women. Now that he's born-again, he's no longer focused on the opposite sex. His attention is devoted to his five-year old daughter and being a venture capitalist. Meeting Yazmeen proves a delicious disruption. The attraction is instant, but clearly she's disinterested. Tavares will need to work to secure her affection despite the drama caused by his unhinged "Baby Mama."

Dive into this faith-filled, sexy romance that will leave you rooting for Yazmeen and Tavares, laughing at their antics, and gasping at the actions of their questionably sane exes.

Loved It

I read this Book 2 in the California Love series after My Joy and I think I may have loved it even better. Yazmeen and Tavares' love? Woowee. It was Christian, sexy, and spicy. I'm really glad they found each other. And those kids? Just adorable. Especially Malik and his mispronouncing everything. Such a fun and touching read.

A Great Read!

Suzette Harrison has a real gift for writing. From page one, the characters come to life; their thoughts, emotions and situations that many could relate to. Tavares, well known retired basketball player and single father, meets Yazmeen, single mother to adorable twins. Both are not looking for a relationship, because of past baby mama and baby daddy drama, but they find their way to each other and slowly build a relationship. There are many twists and turns in their story, but experience their beautiful ending!

Extremely Entertaining and Deep

I wasn’t expecting to laugh out loud in so many places but I did!! This book was really good and had me burning the midnight oil for real for real with these characters! The author did an amazing job of developing each character! The heroine and the hero were amazing and had great personalities! The various themes and struggles in this book were so real! Single saved celibate my goodness only with God can it be done! Working to make marriage work and raise babies also only with God!

I’m So in Love

What an amazing story. So funny, so touching, so full of twists and turns and just enough for you to find that God is always in control no matter what is going on. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and now I'm looking for more. You are another author I will follow and await the next new thing.
