Combining suspense, high drama, and seduction, Nothing Stays the Same is about a man who’s on the brink of losing his business, home, family, and even his self-respect.
Marvin Thomas, CEO of Thomas and Richmond Tecktronics, Inc., is living the good life. He and his partner, Kenny Richmond, head a Fortune 500 company in Atlanta. But Marvin is harboring a secret. The company is deep in debt and is being threatened with a takeover—which Marvin has failed to share with his partner, the shareholders, and his wife.
Marvin has exhausted most of the company’s available cash flow, including his own, to keep the company afloat and faces the biggest decision of his life— save the business or sell his shares in the company of which he’s the majority shareholder. However, a fifty-thousand-dollar extortion scheme and an incriminating photo may send Marvin over the edge long before he’s had an opportunity to redeem himself.
This tight sequel to Ex-Terminator checks in on the fortunes of the Ex-Files, a group of friends who ve helped each survive life after divorce. Marvin Thomas and Kenny Richmond run Thomas and Richmond Tecktronics, a Fortune 500 company that appears to be a wild success, but Marvin knows is deeply in debt. Other worries bombard him as well after an argument with his wife, Rachel, leads him to foolishly hook up with a floozy named Peaches, who tries to blackmail him for $50,000. Perkins also follows up on the lives of other Ex-Files friends: Sylvia, Mona, a now-incarcerated Ashley Jordan-Lewis, and Claudette. Perkins delivers a saucy and solid testament to what it takes to keep the home fires burning but not raging out of control.
