Lust Now, Cry Later is sometimes funny, sometimes sad. This novel highlights the lives of Sdia Mitchell and Natalya Mayer- two African American women from Washington, DC who are both struggling with effects of child abuse, self-esteem and the consequences of having unprotected sex. Through the lives of Sdia and Natalya we are reminded of our own frailty, glory and struggle to rise above the obstacles that life presents to us because we see our own humanity in them. Lust Now, Cry Later is not only a great read but it is also a guide and resource to help educate readers on the HIV epidemic and HIV awareness. The colorful characters in this novel offer the readers an entertaining but thought provoking story that will remain in their memory for a long time.


 


        Beautiful, Intelligent, and Driven are the characteristics

that 24 year old Washington, DC Native Sdia Mitchell

possess.  Struggling with the effects of being abused as a

child and carrying the emotional scars all her life resulted in

an extreme lack of self esteem.  Wanting to find the true

meaning of self love and independence, Sdia ventured on her

own to South New Jersey where she hoped to find peace

and happiness.


Beginning to gain the confidence she worked so hard to

acquire, Sdia meets Mel Simmons, a handsome, entrepreneur

with the gift of gab and a hidden appetite for destruction.

She finds herself trapped in a web of sex, deception, and

brutality that will again have her questioning her self-worth.


From the outside looking in Carl and Natalya Mayer

were looked at as the perfect power couple with the perfect

marriage.


Although Carl provides his wife Natalya with the finer

things in life Natalya shows her appreciation by recklessy

sleeping with his younger, attractive assistant Lamar Baldwin,

who just so happens to have a dirty little secret of his own.

His secret is guaranteed to devastate the life of

Natalya's and those who come in contact with her

FOREVER!


 


 







Professional Reviews

Tauheeda Yasin, English Proffessor
With Lust, Roberts takes a realistic look at modern relationships and how seemingly meaningless moments add up to much more. Through Sdia, we hear human nature in all it's faults, fears, and hopes - and along with Sdia, Roberts has her readers entrenched in Sdia's painful search for happiness.
