"Delves into the romantic conflicts of these Richmond Virginians with a robust relish and soap-opera intense insights." —Publishers Weekly
One of Richmond, Virginia's, hottest, most successful women, plus-sized diva Loraine Farrow finally wants to settle down with her husband, Leon, and focus on her marriage. Trouble is, her ex-lover, Michael, isn't about to let her go so easily.
But things aren't so simple with Leon either. Painful issues from his childhood are starting to surface in the bedroom. Leon's seeing a therapist, but what he's uncovering could destroy their marriage for good—unless Michael does it first.
As Loraine deals with her relationship drama, her best friend, Jerome, is left alone to deal with Peter, a stalker who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Now, four indomitable people torn between love and lust, secrets and lies, will have some momentous decisions to make.
"Weber fills his books with lifelike characters—flawed, confused, frustrated, and sometimes plus-sized." —Booklist
Poor Loraine Farrow, torn between two men: Leon, with whom she has just renewed her marriage vows, and Michael, the hottie she sought affection from during a separation from Leon. Then there's Jerome, her gay best friend and his secret sweetie, "Big Poppa," who just doesn't want to come clean about his and Jerome's relationship. Adding extra wacko conflict is Peter, journalist by day and sicko stalker by night. Weber (Big Girls Do Cry) delves into the romantic conflicts of these Richmond Virginians with a robust relish and soap-opera-intense insights. Loraine, or "Big Sexy" as Leon calls her (she's quite curvaceous), becomes sexually frustrated because of Leon's intimacy issues caused by an abusive aunt and uncle. When Leon seeks help from a therapist, all four learn that facing the truth really means facing the lies, as Weber delivers another eye-popping (if sketchy) lesson in love.
