Griffin is a budding name in mainstream African American fiction. -- Chicago magazine

After her father's death, Emily Yancy agrees to move back to her dead-end hometown. But she's dreading every minute she'll have to spend in her mother's tiny apartment. After all, she's a forty-three-year-old divorcée who's doing just fine on her own. There are some rewards for dutiful daughters though--like Aaron Merritt, a rich, single doctor with chocolate skin and bedroom eyes. . .

Aaron is soon taking Emily to fancy restaurants and inviting her to meet his family. But when the lights go out, something's missing. Enter Teddy Simms, Emily's eighth-grade crush. Teddy hasn't achieved what Aaron has--but he's picked up a few skills in other areas. Will Emily choose a relationship that doesn't satisfy her mind--or an easy compatibility that doesn't quite extend into the bedroom? Or is there some way she can find the best of both worlds?
