In the highly anticipated sequel to The Mating Game, The Forever Game is an eye-opening provocative and sensual look at the varied approaches to the dating scene. If possessing charm, wit, good looks and success doesn't guarantee finding the perfect man, what does?
The second book in a two-part series, The Forever Game brings back three best friends from the nation's capital as they drift through a sea of live. Each is searching for "the one" while running from all the broken hearts and drama they leave in their wake.
Taika - beautiful, intelligent, and confident, has finally found her perfect man - until issues in the bedroom threaten to strain the relationship beyond repair. Vince is a hopeless romantic artist who sees the potential in every woman he dates, until he is painfully forced to admit failure with each one. And Trey saunters from one lustful encounter to another, casually going in and out of passing dalliances. But is his cavalier attitude just a way to escape the pain of Layla, the ex love-of-his-life, who ruined his heart, for good?
Then two mysterious women enter their lives, and suddenly the worlds of Trey, Vince and Taika collide. They must choose where their loyalties lie, and how much they are willing to give up in order to find lasting love.
Luckett's D.C. trio of black urban professionals-Erika, a beautiful doctor; Trey, a supersmooth lawyer and Vince, an artist who, among other things, makes gorgeous, gallery-quality masks-return for further adventures in love in Luckett's steamy sequel to The Mating Game. The book opens as two women with whom Vince has shared an intense New Orleans sojourn show up on his doorstep, and try to recreate the magic. Next, Trey narrates his first, seredipitous encounter with Layla, which leaves him "completely and utterly sprung." By the time the three finally converge at a local club, there have been plenty of goings on. The plot never falls into place, relying on some wrenching twists, but Luckett stages some nicely-drawn scenes where the friends discuss their feelings, and keeps the action and drama coming at a vigorous clip.
