Twelve years prior, Edmund Fox never bargained what would happen after his senior year in H.S. by dating a girl who is not as popular or well-known, to succumb to his lustful needs. Prom night, his date had all the intentions on saving her virginity for marriage, but all plans failed. He flips the script on her, after ignoring her calls, and lets her have it, that if she did not want to do it, she would have not come prepared (condoms).

Afterwards, we label most men as "dirty dogs", but most women are giving up the goodies too soon in the relationship with nothing to treasure later. Like some emotionally-estranged girls, she takes sleeping pills to kill herself; although she survives this endeavor she was labeled a Mania-Fever mental case.

Years later, she keeps up with Edmund's successes twelve years later, in what she calls her "Edmund Shine Scrapbook" and journal about their past life. The mental-thoughts that some women play and meditate in their minds...these types of women are hiding in the shadows.

Moreover, this book is about a woman, who becomes obsessed with the dream of having a man of her wildest dreams. Dreams can be deadly. Besides Edmund Fox eventually finding love, once Tracy discovered his darkest secret coming to the light, he treated her body like a piece of meat, to tame his sexual urges. What a spell-binding whirlwind of suspense in such a romance thriller! I have not read a good urban fiction book by a female writer in ages (besides Jean Holloway with "Ace of Hearts"), this is one of the best books I read in 2009! Hope to see a sequel.
