This was an alright read. While on a trip to Jamaica, Tasha met Justin and instantly wanted to make him a star.

I was a little surprise with Anne and how she viewed Tasha. One would've never guessed things wo ...more

Supposedly a thinly veiled story based on
his relationship/marriage to author Terry
McMillan, its about Justin, from Jamaica,
and how he met Tasha, a powerful woman in
the modeling business. They fall in love,
but after coming back to the States, Justin
begans to question himself, and his
sexuality. A rather fun read, and I was
suprised that it was so. If you take it for
what it is, an entertaining read, and not go
looking for "the dirt" from the real lives of
Jonathan and Terry, you should enjoy this

We go from a completely heterosexual male with no interest in men to a homosexual male that has no interest in women in a matter of a kiss (and so other stuff). I believe that Mr. Plummer was simply trying t ...more

Nothing to get excited about. I don't think Jonathan Plummer has a future as an author. He was smart to capitalize on getting this book out early after the break up with Terri McMillan, there goes his 15 minutes of fame.........

total guilty artistic merit whatsoever. Written in tabloid style with subtle references to his own similar true life story. An easy read!
