I like the way this author creates characters. Sometimes there is an unlikable character, but
then he shows a weakness or vulnerability that makes me reconsider my opinion. Vince and Dana start
a relationship with both of them hiding and/or lying about their pasts. Dana finds out about
Vince's ex-wife and the existence of his daughter. I was appalled at the way she snooped in his
mail and his phone calls. She was jealous of not only his ex-wife , but his daughter. She doesn't
tell him about her financial problems or that her ex-boyfriend wants to get back together.

There's a lot of deceit and mistrust throughout the book. Vince's friend, Womack, suspects his wife of having an affair. Dana's friend, Gerri, moonlights as a stripper to make ends meet but tells people
she has a paper route as a second job.

There was one interesting little sidelight when Vince and Womack were out, and they see two African women. They say something about
Somalian women and the women tell them they are Ethiopian and that
black people in the USA are ignorant about Africa. This leads into
a little altercation and I wondered what the dynamics are between
African Americans who have lived here for generations and new African immigrants.
