In Mary B. Morrison’s national bestsellers Never Again Once More and He’s Just a Friend, readers met playboy heir Darius Jones and reckless-in-romance Fancy Taylor—both of whom return in this deliciously sensual novel that explores the ways men and women surrender themselves to gain the love they’re desperately seeking…

“The only time a woman should be on top is during sex…”

So says Darius Jones. At twenty-two, he’s grown…but he hasn’t necessarily grown up. He still thinks the opposite sex exists purely for his satisfaction. Not that he doesn’t know how to pleasure a sister; he just doesn’t want them telling him the way it’s going to be. On anything. Ever. That’s why he’s set up his own company in LA: Somebody’s Gotta Be on Top Enterprises. But trying to be on top all the time only gets him into trouble with the women in his life, women like…

Ciara Monroe, president of a rival company. She’s earned her position the hard way, but Darius isn’t about to be outsmarted by her…in the bedroom or the boardroom. He’s going after Ciara on a personal level. It’s a move that will cost him, and Ciara’s not leaving before she confronts him about his feelings for Ashlee…

Ashlee Anderson is the stepsister who’s more than just a friend. When Darius convinces Ashlee to live with him and manage his finance department, he never expects her to fall for his half-brother, Kevin Williams. Darius will risk anything to split them up—but there’s another woman who’s got his number… Fancy Taylor. With a regal bearing and skin like brown sugar, Fancy’s definitely intriguing. If Darius wasn’t set on conquering Ashlee, he’d enjoy sampling what the lady has to offer, but that’s all. Fancy’s past precludes her from being serious relationship material. Yet fate has a way of stepping in and putting the wrong people on the right path…

Caught between pride and the call of his own untrusting heart, Darius has a lot to learn: about life, women, and what it takes to find and nurture real love. And if he’s not careful, he might just end up on the bottom of everything….

“A page-turner that will keep readers’ attention and entertain them in the process.” —QBR, The Black Book Review on He’s Just a Friend

“Morrison delivers a deep, passionate story that holds readers from beginning to end.” —Black Issues Book Review on Never Again Once More
