Romance is on the mind of three women seeking love and fulfillment. While Luby Jones and Danni Sellers are in the market for good men, their married best friend Cat Bronson is seeking deeper fulfillment in life.

Mostly told in the first person by Luby, the story begins with her falling in lust during an elevator ride with her ultra-sexy new neighbor, Jake Kosevo. Although she wants him with an almost unbridled passion, she feels Danni needs a good man, since she's always having trouble with relationships. Caucasian Danni always dates men at the bottom of the barrel, so if Luby and Cat can help her along, they'll do it.

Fasten your seatbelt, readers, the ride gets pretty choppy. Luby is easy to figure out, as are Cat and Danni. Jake is more mysterious and focused on what he feels is a curse that he must end. Kudos to Jackson for these treats. Race is often brought up, but it's never an issue, although it hits close to home at times and concludes with even more surprises. (Dec., 304 pp., $15.00)
