If at first you don’t succeed, then try, try again…right?

Only two things matter to Lance, protecting his girls and football. After almost losing the girls, Lance is more determined than ever to safeguard them and fulfill his dream to become a professional athlete. With the NFL draft looming, will his promiscuity derail his dream and endanger the girls again?

Imani, proud and Black, continues along the academic path to a chemical engineering degree and a promising
career. Will her racist preconceptions thwart her progress?

A shattered Melody is more determined than ever to find true love at college just like her parents. But will she continue to make the same mistakes that almost killed her?

When friends cross the line, will their friendship endure…

The Color of Friendship left us at The Pointe with a gun pointed to Melody’s head. After living through such a life changing ordeal the friends seek counseling and vow to make their bond stronger.

But somewhere along the way the lines of friendship are crossed and skeletons are buried. Will the feelings stay buried and will the friendship be able to continue on as normal?

The trio graduate college, and leave the campus that brought them many memories. They each approach individual stumbling blocks in their life. Family secrets are revealed, professional careers ending, work relationships grow into something more and loneliness and drinking can lead to a missing member of the trio.

Lance shows maturity and commits to his future wife no sex before marriage. Will the flames–or lack thereof in the bedroom–help the marriage to grow? Will Melody get over Kevin and will the memorable words that he last spoke ever stop playing in her mind? Will Imani accept and go with what her heart tells her is love or will the skeletons from her closet try to keep her from accepting the color of love? This book answers all these questions and gives so much more.

The author has a talent for writing and telling a story that flows. I am not surprised the characters are more developed in this installment of the series. I admire how the author starts the novel off so subtle and then throws in little twist and then oops a big twist and then more smaller twist and then an ending that definitely will have you picking up the next book of the series.

I am a satisfied reader and so happy that I picked this series. I enjoyed this book and I can see the growth in the author’s writing in keeping the readers entertained though out. The story has a continuous flow with several realistic situations. The author has given readers a deeply personal view on race and that the true meaning of friendship and love goes well beyond the color of one’s skin.

I enjoyed the read and look forward to reading the next book in the series.
