Author NeCee's entertaining debut novel, "Grooming Him for Her" was inspired by an experience to which most women, and more than a few men, can easily relate. NeCee and her college boyfriend had a relationship filled with both fun and hard times, but eventually they broke up. However, when she ran into him soon after graduation, he couldn't wait to tell her how thankful he was for their past relationship, because it had made him a better man, and he was now engaged to another woman. "What a waste of time for me." The idea of grooming, investing a lot in a man, only for another woman to reap the benefits, is the central theme surrounding two pairs of friends in "Grooming Him for Her."

Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views (1/08)

This is the author NeCee’s debut novel and it is a winner.  The quirky short story is a quick read but has it all – wildly successful women, relationship problems, great sex and friendship.  I was left wishing the story had been longer but was quickly satisfied by reading the short sequel “Crawlers.”

The story centers around two women, Nikki Ford and Sasha Benay.  Nikki is a successful attorney who thinks she has everything she wants in life.  She is fast tracking it to the top at work, has a man that she loves, a beautiful son and her best friend Pearl.  Nikki is committed to her relationship with Brandon and is hoping to marry him until he begins to pull away from her more and more.  He is intimidated by Nikki’s success and will not attend any work functions with her.  After they break up Nikki has a hard time moving on but she begins to realize that the relationship was going nowhere.   Her European co-worker, Matthew, has been trying to get Nikki’s attention for a long time and she begins to notice him more and more as Brandon leaves her life.  

Sasha Benay is loving life.  She has a wonderful career, her best friend Star and she has learned to date like a man by not taking anyone seriously.  That works for her until she sets her site on Pearl’s faithful husband, Robert.   Sasha keeps telling herself that it is just about sex, but cannot get Robert off her mind. 

Both women end up “Grooming” their man for another woman.  Nikki does it for Brandon’s new love, Star, who cannot believe this wonderful man is available.  And Sasha teaches Robert things that he begins to use to spark up his sex life at home. 

The “sistah’s” in this book offer great insights into men and relationships.  I laughed out loud and learned a lot.  NeCee has also added a section to take notes at the end and a “Food for Thought” chapter that would make this a great book club book to read.  I highly recommend “Grooming Him for Her” for women to read and use for a discussion group.
