On a four-day vacation, Tara and Serena visit Tara’s family and friends. Both women connect with people they did not expect. Terry Jones, an NBA player, happens to be in town. When Terry and Tara were dating back in middle school, Terry messed up and wants to make things right with Tara. Introduced to a gorgeous man, Serena finds out that he is Tara’s half brother. They find a connection with each other and everyone around them notices, even Tony’s current girlfriend.
There are several issues with this book. First, the story did not flow well and it became confusing. Ms. Coleman hopped from person to person and there was not a transition. Second of all, the filler material got in the way of the story. The story plot had potential, but the drama occurring between all of the characters distracted from what the reader should have been focusing on. Last, but not least, the cheating, the backstabbing and betrayals left a bad taste in my mouth.
