Booklist Review

Xena Trinity hasn't been the same since her ex-boyfriend, Memphis, crossed the country to California to chase his Olympic track dream. She is trying to launch her own dream of a menswear line at New York's Fashion Week, and her friend Tropez seems to have the contacts to open that door for her. Her bestie, Tina-Love, is lying about Memphis' decision not to return to Savannah, and Xena isn't ready for him. She has a new boyfriend, Adonis, and she may be pregnant with his baby. Memphis' ex from California stalks him to Savannah, saying she is pregnant. He wants to get back together with Xena, but isn't willing to have her with another man's child. Xena learns that instead of being pregnant, she has cancer and needs someone to support her financially and emotionally. Best-selling Morrison keeps the drama and intrigue twisting to the shocking ending, and readers will be eager to see the fates of Xena and Memphis. What happens to familial or romantic relationships in the absence of love and support is a fascinating theme.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2019 Booklist
