I really enjoyed this book although it didn't end the way I thought it would. This book had a few twists and had me crying at the end. Good job EJD!

Words can't even explain how much I enjoyed reading this book. I could hardly put the book down. The characters seem to jump right off the page.

I'll start this review by saying this, I am a very big fan of Eric Jerome Dickey.There's just something about his work that makes you not want to put the book down until the end.This is also the case with his latest book, Friends and Lovers. Although at first I was somewhat drawn to the story line, it wasn't until I had gotten through the first chapter that I had found myself hooked. The story line is this: The main character got dumped at the altar by Nicole. Nicole then moved away from their hometown to be with her loved Ayanna.The author comes to visit with leads Nicole to feeling torn between her old love and her new love.Also, Nicole then tries to merge her old life with her new life which leads to hurt feelings as well as new experiences with intimacy.Throughout the course of the novel, the reader is put on a kind of emotional roller coaster. While at times you feel sorry for the narrator, at times, you feel angry with him because he is not seeing things as they truly are. What I liked most about this novel was the way in which the characters interacted with each other.When I was reading this book, I felt as if these were people I actually knew and I was friends with them. In my opinion, it takes a special person to be able to communicate relationships like that to a reader. Overall, I enjoyed this book very much and I have already recommended it to someone.I feel that anyone who reads it will like it as much as I did if not more.
