In this first of a three-book series that will appeal to fans of Eric Jerome Dickey and Zane, national bestselling author Mary B. Morrison delivers a juicy, fast-paced novel of female empowerment that follows the soap opera-esque escapades of five women from the same family as they do whatever it takes to get what they want.
New York Times bestselling author Mary B. Morrison introduces her most seductive and vulnerable characters yet with the Crystal women, a family whose bonds are tested by love, lust, and the elusive quest for true happiness. . .
Blake Crystal has the best of almost everything. She’s at the top of her game at work, she has four wonderful daughters, and at fifty, she’s more financially secure than she’s ever been. In and out of the bedroom, her new younger lover takes her in breathtaking directions that force her to make decisions she never imagined. . .
On the surface, Alexis Crystal is an ideal daughter. As confident as she is beautiful, she can have any man or woman she wants, so she has both in her collection of bed partners. Determined to add one more, she doesn’t care that he’s dating a family member. But for all the satisfaction she gets between the sheets, she’s left unsatisfied by the one thing that troubles her—the identity of her father is listed as unknown on her birth certificate. Her mother has kept him a secret for twenty-six years. Alexis can’t move forward with her life until she stands face-to-face with the man she feels abandoned her. It doesn’t help that her three other sisters don’t know the identity of their fathers either. . .but they’ve also got their hands full with problems. . .
As the Crystal women celebrate Blake’s big birthday, they realize the issues in their relationships are too big to ignore. To get what they want, they’ll have to lie, use their seductive power, battle their insecurities, and if necessary, betray each other. . .
With the skills of a seasoned Writer, Mary B. Morrison takes the reader into the world full of Adult situations stemming from Childhood experiences. Morrison gives us a no-holds-barred, front row seat into the minds and hearts of individuals dealing with childhood sexual abuse; family dysfunction; the father/daughter relationship dynamics; and the long-reaching impact of each of these.
Placing the reader in Adult situations using Adult language, Morrison challenges us to explore and embrace our individual sexuality and the power that lies within it. Also, she forces us to acknowledge and address our Mental Health as we accept the correlation between our healthy sexuality and our healthy minds.
I recommend this book to Adult readers.
