Penguin Putnam
New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey delivers his next delectable erotic romance.
 
They call themselves the Blackbirds. Kwanzaa Browne, Indigo Abdulrahaman, Destiny Jones, and Ericka Stockwell are four best friends who are closer than sisters and will go to the ends of the earth for one another. Yet even their deep bond can’t heal all wounds from their individual pasts, as the collegiate and post-collegiate women struggle with their own demons, drama, and desires.
 
Trying to forget her cheating ex-fiancé, Kwanzaa becomes entangled with a wicked one-night stand—a man who turns out to be one in five million. Indigo is in an endless on-again, off-again relationship with her footballer boyfriend, and in her time between dysfunctional relationships she pursues other naughty desires. Destiny, readjusting to normal life, struggles to control her own anger after avenging a deep wrong landed her in juvi, while at the same time trying to have her first real relationship—one she has initiated using an alias to hide her past from her lover. Divorced Ericka is in remission from cancer and trying to deal with two decades of animosity with her radical mother while keeping secret the desperate crush she has always had on Destiny’s father . . . a passion with an older man that just may be reciprocated. 
 
As the women try to overcome—or give in to—their impulses, they find not only themselves tested but also the one thing they always considered unbreakable: their friendship.

Baker & Taylor
Four women, best friends who are closer than sisters, find their friendship tested as they struggle with their own personal demons, drama, and desires.

This book was a massive disappointment for someone who is constantly recommended EJD. The story is overly predictable and physically made me cringe at certain parts. It was like "Waiting to Exhale" fan-fiction with "new" characters and the only research they did for this was read Buzzfeed articles.

Currently reading - I admit that I was drawn in by the gorgeous cover (and the fact that I'd not yet read a book by such a famous author). The characters are interesting, the dialogue is fast and sassy, and OOH BOY is it raunchy in spots. Not for the faint of heart! It's a large book but moves fast :)

This was not vintage Eric Jerome Dickey. I didn't enjoy this one probably because his characters were not believable and the story predictable? Was disappointed.
