It is about life on life's terms and destiny upsetting the best of our so-called plans, because it’s like... you never know.”


Excerpt

Caressa sat on the window seat overlooking the palm trees that lined the deserted street below. It was 2:45 am. Sleep would not claim her. She had had many sleepless nights. Nights where she sat up alone, contemplating, meditating, reading, anything to lull her to sleep and blessed peace. Usually she would concentrate on trying different relaxing methods, meditation, transcendental or yoga to enable her to fall into slumber. Tonight she could not sleep because he refused to let her. She was forced to listen and be watchful. He tried to make her think she still loved him. She let him think it. He believed her incapable of sustaining her own existence. She let him believe it. He thought she fought back tears. She was indifferent. Then had come his speech. Long rehearsed, a smile had played at the corner of his lips. His pupils dilated, as if high from the joy of inflicting pain. In anger the tone of his voice rose and fell with each word uttered. Bitch became her name. Snatches of what he said bounced around her. It was not so much what was said, but rather the emphasis he placed on certain words, that caused her back to rise. She refused to show him any reaction. Nearly removed, she would not let him see or feel any of the emotions he roused in her. Although some words penetrated, she tucked the pain away. She concentrated on the fact that he was finally leaving. “God, just get the hell out.” She wanted to scream at him. However, nothing came from her but silence.



Professional Reviews

Lady & the Ruffneck
My favorite part of the book is the chapters on Caressa and Dallas. I fell in love with the characters like they were my best friends. I've known Roxann for a long time and didn't realize she could write so well. While I may be prejudiced I know a good book when I read one! Good luck Roxann! I'm ordering one for my sister too! Martine Martin, Publicist

Hot & Spicy
Not since Terri McMillian has a story so captured the imagination. These sistahfriends are hot, spicy and hip divas...and while they can handle their own businesses while dealing with husbands and lovers with humor, their camaraderie is to be envied. Patrick DeShields, Publisher & Editor, San Diego NewsLink Newspaper

Love & Sex in the New Century
Look out Sex in the City, these four sistahgirls are doing the damn thang big time!! Roxann writes like she enjoys herself and brings you into a world full of love and laughter admist tears and pain and healing. Four women of various social backgrounds having grown up together share their friendship in the truest sense of sisterhood. A fun and quick page turner! Emafa Tamakloe, African Women's Writing Guild
