He Was My Man First

"HE WAS MY MAN FIRST is the first narrative to intertwine contemporary fiction with street lit. Fast paced and packed with drama, this novel will have a cross over appeal. The characters jump off the page and readers will find themselves rooting for Valentine and Richard to stay together, but not all stories are meant to have a happy ending." - Sybil's Corner, Black America Web

"A fascinating tale of one woman's desire to hold onto the love of her life and the strength she gets along the journey . . . The authors of HE WAS MY MAN FIRST have created a wonderful character driven story with lots of angst." - Darlene Kendall,
