In this sizzling, exciting novel, four women show that age is just a number by seeking out new forms of pleasure, love, and romance.
Whether it be getting a tattoo, using whips and chains, or preparing dinner in nothing but stilettos, four divas—all best friends and over fifty years old—decide that they need to spice up their love lives. And they’re willing to go to any length to achieve that.
So Emma, Queenie, Yolanda, and Connie set out to get the pleasure they crave. For Emma, that means rekindling her sex life with her doting husband, whom she decides to take care of for once. Yolanda, who is still turning heads and could have anyone she wants, finally meets a man who suits her tastes—but can she suit his? Queenie, who is fifty-eight and divorced, entertains her on-again, off-again male friend one night when he’s lucky enough to get his hands on some Viagra. And Connie, who has never been married, is in love with a man who won’t put a ring on her finger. Will she be able to convince him to marry her, or, more importantly, does she even want that herself?
As things start heating up, the ladies’ lives get sexier…and more complicated. Soon, the four divas soon face more drama than they bargained for…

Getting to Know Author Suzetta Perkins:
Q: WHERE DID YOU GO TO HIGH SCHOOL AND/OR COLLEGE
1. I’m a California native, and I graduated from high school in Hayward, California. I also went to college in California; however, I earned my degrees from Fayetteville Technical Community College and Fayetteville State University.
2. Q. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE PERFECT HAPPINESS?
A. I’m not sure that I can describe perfect happiness because I’ve not had that experience. If I was to attempt to describe it, I’d say that perfect happiness would be a world where there was peace, tranquility, no hunger, no financial issues and everyone loved each other for who they were regardless of their race, color, or creed.
